The flavonoid quercetin induces changes in mitochondrial permeability by inhibiting adenine nucleotide translocase.


This study shows the effects of the flavonoid quercetin on diverse mitochondrial functions, among them membrane permeability. Our findings indicate that the addition of 50 microM quercetin did not produce reactive oxygen derived species; however, it inhibited the oxidative stress induced after the addition of Fe(2)/H(2)O(2) by about 38%. At this… (More)
