This study was conducted to determine function and defects in electron transport in muscle mitochondria of meat chickens (broilers) with pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS). The respiratory control ratio (RCR, indicative of respiratory chain coupling) was higher in the control than in PHS breast and heart muscle mitochondria, but there were no differences in the ADP/O (an index of oxidative phosphorylation). Sequential additions of ADP improved the RCR in the control breast muscle… CONTINUE READING
