Solute carrier 41A3 encodes for a mitochondrial Mg2+ efflux system

The data identify SLC41A3 of solute carrier (SLC) family 41 as the first mammalian mitochondrial Mg2+ efflux system, which greatly enhances the understanding of intracellular M g2+ homeostasis.

A pair of transporters controls mitochondrial Zn2+ levels to maintain mitochondrial homeostasis

It is revealed here that a pair of mitochondrion-localized transporters controls the mitochondrial level of Zn2+.

Why cancer cells have a more hyperpolarised mitochondrial membrane potential and emergent prospects for therapy

In the cancer cell model, the adenine nucleotide exchanger (ANT) is inversely orientated in the mitochondrial inner membrane as compared to normal cells, which predicts it to have a different drug interaction profile, which can be leveraged for cancer therapy.

Magnesium Extravaganza: A Critical Compendium of Current Research into Cellular Mg2+ Transporters Other than TRPM6/7.

The status quo of the current understanding of the molecular entities behind cellular Mg2+ homeostasis in mammalian/human cells other than TRPM6/7 chanzymes is reviewed, which have been universally accepted as being unspecific cation channel kinases allowing the flux of Mg 2+ while constituting the major gateway for Mg1+ to enter the cell.

SLC25A23 augments mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake, interacts with MCU, and induces oxidative stress–mediated cell death

Knockdown of SLC25A23 decreases mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake, and SLC25A23 interacts with MCU and MICU1, components of mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter. Expression of SLC25A23 EF-hand-domain mutants has a

This review covers all aspects of DUSP3, since its gene cloning and crystallographic structure resolution, in addition to its classical and novel substrates and the biological processes involved, followed by an update of what is currently known about the D USP3/VHR-inhibiting compounds that might be considered potential drugs to treat human diseases.

SLC41A1, SLC41A3 and CNNM2: Magnesium responsive genes with potential involvement in human ailments

It is demonstrated that the substitution p.A350V potentially associated with PD is a gain-of-function mutation that enhances a core function of SLC41A1, namely Na-dependent Mg efflux by 69610% under experimental conditions, which might result in chronic intracellular Mg-deficiency.



Mechanism and regulation of the mitochondrial ATP-Mg/Pi carrier

The mitochondrial ATP-Mg/Pi carrier is distinct from other mitochondrial transport systems with respect to kinetics and to substrate and inhibitor sensitivity and is the only carrier regulated by Ca2+.

It seems that in the cell, energy status (reflected by ATP:ADP ratios in the cytoplasm and matrix) determines whether calcium‐mediated hormone activation of the carrier will produce an increase or a decrease in the matrix adenine nucleotide content.

Mitochondrial transporters as novel targets for intracellular calcium signaling.

Evidence gathered more than 20 years ago and recent work indicating that substrate uptake, mitochondrial NADH/NAD ratios, and ATP levels may be also activated in response to cytosolic Ca(2+) signals via a mechanism that does not require the entry of Ca( 2+) in mitochondria are reviewed.

The ATP-Mg/Pi carrier of rat liver mitochondria catalyzes a divalent electroneutral exchange.

Because phosphate recycles via the phosphate carrier in mitochondria, the three isoforms of the ATP-Mg/P i car- rier are most likely responsible for the recycling of phosphate.

Permeability transition in rat liver mitochondria is modulated by the ATP-Mg/Pi carrier.

Results of this study show that phosphate-induced opening of the mitochondrial PTP is, at least in part, secondary to depletion of the intramitochondrial adenine nucleotide content via the ATP-Mg/Pi carrier, which can modulate the sensitivity of rat liver mitochondria to undergo permeability transition.

Net adenine nucleotide transport in rat kidney mitochondria.

Two distinct mechanisms for net adenine nucleotide transport were demonstrated - one is identical to the CAT-insensitive ATP-Mg/Pi carrier known in liver mitochondria; the other is a CAT- sensitive mechanism that is not present in liver and may represent a novel function of the ADP/ATP translocase or another CAT-sensitive carrier.

Calcium stimulates ATP-Mg/Pi carrier activity in rat liver mitochondria.

Regulation of the mitochondrial adenine nucleotide pool size.

Net adenine nucleotide transport in rat liver mitochondria is affected by both the matrix and the external ATP/ADP ratios.
