  • Ca2+ and P(i) accumulation by mitochondria triggers a number of alterations leading to nonspecific increase in inner membrane permeability [Kowaltowski, A. J., et al. (1996) J. Biol. Chem. 271, 2929-2934]. The molecular nature of the membrane perturbation that precedes oxidative damage is still unknown. EPR spectra of spin probes incorporated in submitochondrial particles (SMP) and in model membranes suggest that Ca(2+)-cardiolipin (CL) complexation plays an important role. Ca(2+)-induced lipid… CONTINUE READING
