When petunia (Petunia hybrida Vilm, cv Rosy Morn) cells are cultured in the presence of 2 [mu]M antimycin A (AA), respiration proceeds mainly via the cyanide-resistant pathway. Cyanide-resistant respiratory rates were higher in mitochondria from AA cells than in control mitochondria. Compared with control cells, an increase in alternative oxidase protein was observed in AA cells, as well as an increase in ubiquinone (UQ) content. A change in the kinetics of succinate dehydrogenase was observed… CONTINUE READING
