We investigated the cation permeability of liver mitochondria isolated from hypothyroid or euthyroid rats by measuring the rate of swelling of respiring mitochondria in acetate salts as a function of membrane potential. Mitochondria from hypothyroid rats have a decreased permeability of roughly 3-fold in the presence of monovalent cations K and(More)
