Possible mechanisms of the efflux of glutamate from kidney mitochondria generated by the activity of mitochondrial glutaminase.


The transport of glutamate across the inner membrane of kidney mitochondria and the influx of glutamine into the mitochondria was studied using an oxygen electrode, the swelling technique and by continous recording of the activity of the mitochondrial glutaminase by an NH4+-sensitive electrode. It is well known that the enzyme is activated by inorganic… (More)
