Ba2+ uptake and the inhibition by Ba2+ of K+ flux into rat liver mitochondria


Rapid uptake of Ba2+ by respiring rat liver mitochondria is accompanied by a transient stimulation of respiration. Following accumulation of Ba2+, e.g. at a concentration of 120 nmol per mg protein, the mitochondria exhibit reduced rates of state 3 and uncoupler-stimulated respiration. ADP-stimulated respiration is inhibited at a lower concentration of Ba2… (More)
