The aim of this study was to relate changes in the redox state of mitocondrial electron carriers to the 'burst' of oxyradicals in postischemic myocardium. The free radical EPR signals of control and re-oxygenated rat hearts were mainly due to coenzyme Q10, the line width was 0.81 +/- 0.02 mT, and the intensities (1.58 +/- 0.12) x 10(16) and (1.41 +/- 0.13… CONTINUE READING
