The energy conserved during oxidoreduction in the mitochondrial respiratory chain may be used either for ATP synthesis or in other energy-linked reactions, including the uptake of univalent and bivalent cations (Ernster & Lee, 1964). A sustained phase of cation uptake by isolated mitochondria, and a concurrent increase in the respiration rate, usually requires the addition of a permeant anion, e.g. phosphate or acetate. Univalent cation uptake is stimulated strongly by the antibiotics… CONTINUE READING
