1. 1. The regulation of mitochondrial respiration in muscle and liver of tench (Tinca tinca) was examined over the physiological temperature range in summer and winter. 2. 2. In winter animals the mitochondrial respiration is driven more efficiently by succinate in liver and by α-ketoglutarate (α-KG) in muscle. 3. 3. At low experimental temperatures winter rates are higher than summer rates in mitochondria of both tissues and with both substrates, whereas at high experimental… CONTINUE READING
