The kinetics of in vivo regulation of mitochondrial respiration by ADP was studied in rat heart, slow-twitch skeletal muscle (soleus) and fast-twitch skeletal muscle (gastrocnemius, plantaris, quadriceps and tibialis anterior) by means of saponin-skinned fibres. Mitochondrial respiratory parameters were determined in the absence and presence of creatine (20(More)
The aim of this review is to analyze the results of experimental research of mechanisms of regulation of mitochondrial respiration in cardiac and skeletal muscle cells in vivo obtained by using the permeabilized cell technique. Such an analysis in the framework of Molecular Systems Bioenergetics shows that the mechanisms of regulation of energy fluxes(More)
The potential role of dystrophin-mediated control of systems integrating mitochondria with ATPases was assessed in muscle cells. Mitochondrial distribution and function in skinned cardiac and skeletal muscle fibers from dystrophin-deficient (MDX) and wild-type mice were compared. Laser confocal microscopy revealed disorganized mitochondrial arrays in m.(More)
We studied possible connections of tubulin, microtubular system, and microtubular network stabilizing STOP protein with mitochondria in rat and mouse cardiac and skeletal muscles by confocal microscopy and oxygraphy. Intracellular localization and content of tubulin was found to be muscle type-specific, with high amounts in oxidative muscles, and much lower(More)
Energy metabolism in gastrobiopsy specimens of the antral and corpus mucosa, treated with saponin to permeabilize the cells, was studied in patients with gastric diseases. The results show twice lower oxidative capacity in the antral mucosa than in the corpus mucosa and the relative deficiency of antral mitochondria in complex I. The mucosal cells expressed(More)
Kindred DNA amplification is a novel and cost-effective method developed to isolate common cDNA fragments between two distinct cDNA populations. Unlike subtractive hybridization, which discards common sequences, kindred DNA amplification isolates and amplifies these sequences within a single hybridization procedure. The utility of this method is(More)
Comparative analysis of the bioenergetic parameters of adult rat cardiomyocytes (CM) and HL-1 cells with very different structure but similar cardiac phenotype was carried out with the aim of revealing the importance of the cell structure for regulation of its energy fluxes. Confocal microscopic analysis showed very different mitochondrial arrangement in(More)
Expression and function of creatine kinase (CK), adenylate kinase (AK) and hexokinase (HK) isoforms in relation to their roles in regulation of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and intracellular energy transfer were assessed in beating (B) and non-beating (NB) cardiac HL-l cell lines and adult rat cardiomyocytes or myocardium. In both types of HL-1 cells,(More)
Cardiac energy metabolism with emphasis on mitochondria was addressed in atrial tissue from patients with overload-induced atrial dilation. Structural remodeling of dilated (D) atria manifested as intracellular accumulation of fibrillar aggregates, lipofuscin, signs of myolysis and autophagy. Despite impaired complex I dependent respiration and increased(More)
The cellular energy metabolism in human musculus gluteus medius (MGM) under normal conditions and hip osteoarthritis (OA) was explored. The functions of oxidative phosphorylation and energy transport systems were analyzed in permeabilized (skinned) muscle fibers by oxygraphy, in relation to myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform distribution profile analyzed by(More)
