When rat liver mitochondria are allowed to accumulate Ca2+, treated with ruthenium red to inhibit reverse activity of the Ca2+ uniporter, and then treated with an uncoupler, they release Ca2+ and endogenous Mg2+ and undergo large amplitude swelling with ultrastructural expansion of the matrix space. These effects are not produced by Ca2+ plus uncoupler alone. Like other "Ca2+-releasing agents" (i.e. N-ethylmaleimide, t-butylhydroperoxide, oxalacetate, etc.), the development of nonspecific… CONTINUE READING
