Rat liver mitochondrial fractions have previously been shown to contain a pool of iron which was bound neither in cytochromes nor in iron-sulfur centers (Tangerås, A., Flatmark, T., Bãckstrõm, D. and Ehrenberg, A. (1980) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 589, 162-175), and in the present study the availability of this iron pool for heme synthesis has been studied in isolated mitochondria. A minor fraction of this iron is here shown to originate from iron-rich lysosomes present as a contaminant in… CONTINUE READING
