1. The ability to phosphorylate ADP during oxidation of NADH by ubiquinone-1 was restored to the NADH-ubiquinone reductase complex by combining the latter with phospholipids and a hydrophobic protein fraction derived from bovine heart mitochondria. 2. Phosphorylation was abolished by rotenone, uncoupling agents, or rutamycin. The efficiency of ATP formation(More)
The kinetics of radiolabeled fatty acid uptake by the ciliate Paramecium tetraurelia was examined on a homologous series of saturated, straight chain fatty acids of even carbon numbers. Uptake rates increased with chain length from acetate to palmitate. Saturation kinetics was demonstrated for most fatty acids examined, thus ruling out simple diffusion as(More)
