Camphor at <8 μmoles/mg protein reduced the rate of oxygen consumption by rat liver mitochondria. The effect occurs only with NAD+-linked substrates. Succinate linked respiration was inhibited but this appears to be caused by some conversion of succinate to malate. At higher levels, camphor increases oxygen consumption with succinate substrate, by uncoupling at site II.
