The regulation of alternative oxidase activity by the effector pyruvate was investigated in soybean (Glycine max L.) mitochondria using developmental changes in roots and cotyledons to vary the respiratory capacity of the mitochondria. Rates of cyanide-insensitive oxygen uptake by soybean root mitochondria declined with seedling age. Immunologically detectable protein levels increased slightly with age, and mitochondria from younger, more active roots had less of the protein in the reduced form… CONTINUE READING
