A significantly higher rate of respiration in the absence of added ADP has been revealed in mitochondria of endotherms as compared with that of the ectotherms with similar rates of respiration during phosphorylation. A high rate of ADP‐independent (non‐coupled with ATP synthesis) respiration is observed during oxidation of succinate, NADH and ascorbate + cytochrome c, but not with NAD‐dependent substrates. It increases in the presence of cytochrome c during oxidation of succinate and NADH and… Expand
COUPLED AND NONCOUPLED RESPIRATION IN RAT CARDIOCYTES
The respiration of rat cardiocyties while oxidizing different substrates was studied polarographically to quantify rates of coupled and noncoupled respiration at 37 0 C in incubation medium.Expand
Inhibition of Krebs cycle and activation of glyoxylate cycle in the course of chronological aging of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Compensatory role of succinate oxidation.
TLDR
Data show that a greater succinate contribution to respiration in more active cells is a general property of yeast and animal tissues. Expand
A comparative study of hepatic mitochondrial oxygen consumption in four vertebrates by using Clark-type electrode.
TLDR
The results show that rats and chickens have higher oxygen consumption rate than that of fish and toads and that the observed difference in the mitochondrial respiration and P/O ratio in the above vertebrates is due to the difference in their metabolic activities. Expand
The effect of metabolic depression on proton leak rate in mitochondria from hibernating frogs.
TLDR
It is concluded that proton leak rate is reduced during metabolic depression as a secondary result of a decrease in electron transport chain activity, but that the proton conductance is unchanged. Expand
The possible role of isoforms of cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIa in mammalian thermogenesis
TLDR
Reconstituted cytochrome c oxidase from bovine liver and kidney, containing subunit VIaL, revealed H +/e− ratios below 0.5, independent of the ATP/ADP ratio, which suggests the evolution of three types of sub unit VIa. Expand
A comparison of fuel preferences of mitochondria from vertebrates and invertebrates
TLDR
The observed differences between tissues and species in the capacities for mitochondrial oxidation of fatty acids, ketone bodies, pyruvate, and amino acids reflect fundamentally different adaptations for the assimilation, storage, and utilization of metabolic fuels. Expand
Loose-coupled mitochondria in chronic glucagon-treated hyperthermic ducklings.
TLDR
Results support a coupling defect in liver and skeletal muscle mitochondria from the GT hyperthermic ducklings and an uncoupling reinforcement by FFA. Expand
David and goliath: a mitochondrial coupling problem?
TLDR
Frogs with high growth rates and large body sizes exhibit higher ATP synthesis rates and more efficient oxidative phosphorylation compared to the smaller frogs with low growth rates, introducing the mitochondrial energy transduction system as an important mechanism for balancing physiological and ecological trade-offs associated with body size. Expand
The proton permeability of the inner membrane of liver mitochondria from ectothermic and endothermic vertebrates and from obese rats: correlations with standard metabolic rate and phospholipid fatty acid composition.
TLDR
It was found that proton permeability and substrate oxidation activity were greater in liver mitochondria from endotherms than those from ectotherms, and proton leak per milligram of inner membrane phospholipid correlated with 11 phospholIPid fatty acid compositional parameters, including unsaturation index.

IN VITRO METABOLISM BY TURTLE HEART MITOCHONDRIA.
TLDR
The capacity of turtle heart mitochondria to metabolize intermediates of the tricarboxylic acid cycle appears to be equivalent to that of mitochondria of mammalian cardiac muscle heretofore published. Expand
The oxidation of added NADH by intact heart mitochondria
TLDR
A NADH-oxidase which was destroyed upon ageing of the mitochondria and which was highly sensitive to the normal respiratory chain inhibitors is described, which possesses some of the characteristics which might be expected from a cytoplasmicmitochondrial NADh-oxidsase working in Go. Expand
Activation and inhibition of succinate oxidation following adenosine diphosphate supplements to pigeon heart mitochondria.
TLDR
Evidence for rapid initiation of electron transfer on addition of reduced diphosphopyridine nucleotide to Keilin and Hartree preparations is unclear and an induction period in the initiation of respiration is suggested. Expand
Factors influencing the utilization of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide by pigeon heart mitochondria.
TLDR
Findings are compatible with the view that the oxidation of cytoplasmic NADH is a normal property of heart mitochondria, and the inhibition of ATP in concentrations similar to those found in heart is compatible with this view. Expand

TLDR
The degree of respiratory control in fish mitochondrial preparations was found to be similar to that reported for rat liver mitochondria and phosphate esterification approached the theoretical maximum of the electron-transport system of mammals. Expand

The results affirm the general utility of toxic antibiotics as tools for metabolic investigations and show considerable selectivity in these systems as well as in their inhibition of mitochondrial adenosinetriphosphatase (ATPase). Expand
