Mitochondrial respiration and oxidative phosphorylation were compared in normal and dystrophic mouse skeletal muscles. To obtain the maximum respiration control ratio (RCR) and adenosine diphosphate/oxygen (ADP/O) ratio from isolated muscle mitochondria, it is found that there is an advantage in having a low concentration of proteinase and EGTA present in… (More)
