Flux-dependent increase in the stoichiometry of charge translocation by mitochondrial ATPase/ATP synthase induced by almitrine.

After studying the effects of almitrine, a new kind of ATPase/ATP synthase inhibitor, on two kinds of isolated mammalian mitochondrion, we have observed that: (1) Almitrine inhibits oligomycin-sensitive ATPase; it decreases the ATP/O value of oxidative phosphorylations without any change in the magnitude of delta mu H+. (2) Almitrine increases the… CONTINUE READING
