Liver mitochondria form rats kept on a high-protein diet exhibit an increased rate of respiration upon addition of ornithine in the presence of HCO2 and NH+4. This is the manifestation of intramitochondrial utilization of ATP for the synthesis of citrulline. State 3 respiration of these mitochondria could be adjusted to the same rate as that produced by ornithine by either using limiting amounts of hexokinase or titration with atractyloside. Under such conditions, in both systems the proton… CONTINUE READING
