ATP production in isolated mitochondria of procyclic Trypanosoma brucei.

This chapter describes a luciferase-based protocol to measure adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production in isolated mitochondria of Trypanosoma brucei. The assay represents an excellent method to characterize the functionality of isolated mitochondria. Comparing the ATP production induced by substrates for oxidative phosphorylation to the one induced by… CONTINUE READING
