The effect of cholesterol incorporation on some functions of the mitochondrial inner membrane and on the morphology of rat liver mitochondria was studied. Basal ATPase and succinate dehydrogenase activities remained unchanged after cholesterol was incorporated into the mitochondria; however, uncoupled ATPase activity was partially inhibited. The presence of(More)
The purpose of this work was to study the exchange of adenine nucleotides in mitochondria isolated from human placenta tissue. The results indicate that ADP and ATP are translocated at a lower rate than those reported for rat liver mitochondria. It is proposed that the limited transport is due to the particular lipid composition of placental mitochondria(More)
