In this interesting article by Chondronikola et al. (1), the measurements of adipose tissue mitochondrial respiration are reported. The authors use a study by López et al. (2) as a reference for details of the used methods. A list of the substrates used for mitochondrial respiration (octanoyl-carnitine, pyruvate, glutamate, malate, ADP, succinate, and oligomycin) is given. In the results (see Fig. 6G), they report data on the “uncoupled mitochondrial respiration” (1). There are several… CONTINUE READING
