The following is an account of an investigation into the role of the enzyme in the succinate-enzyme-fumarate equilibrium. The method consisted in the comparison of the value of the free energy change in this reaction obtained from oxidation-reduction potentials, with that calculated from the entropies and other physicochemical properties of succinic acid and fumaric acid.

The Mechanism of Enzymatic Oxidations and Reductions
TLDR
This paper is an attempt to present a unified treatment of the mechanism of a diversity of enzymatic oxidation-reduction and the pertinent kinetic relationships and a few basic assumptions are used as the foundation for the treatment. Expand
The Mechanism of Enzymatic Oxidations and Reductions
A REVIEW article of lasting value must assimilate useful ideas of the past, apply them to current problems, and predict which ideas will both guide and survive the course of future research. LuValleExpand
Relationships between the effects of redox potential, α‐Thenoyltrifluoroacetone and malonate on O2 − and H2O2 generation by submitochondrial particles in the presence of succinate and antimycin
TLDR
The modulation of O2 xxx and H2O2 generation by these inhibitors can be explained by their effects on the steady‐state redox potential of the component(s) of mitochondrial site 2. Expand
Mitochondrial oxygen affinity as a function of redox and phosphate potentials.
TLDR
Rat-liver mitochondria, incubated under such conditions, show a strongly diminished affinity for oxygen, which can be accounted for in a simple mechanism for cytochrome oxidase action. Expand
Electron spin resonance studies on heart muscle succinic dehydrogenase: substrate analogues.
TLDR
Results indicate that the functions E′0 30 ° and dE′ 0 d pH calculated for the enzyme are invariant with respect to the substrate systems used, interpreted to support an equilibrium mechanism involving the obligatory oxidation-reduction of succinic dehydrogenase. Expand
The Thermodynamics of the Krebs Cycle and Related Compounds
A survey is made of the enthalpies of formation, third law entropies and Gibbs energies available for Krebs cycle and related compounds. These include formate, acetate, succinate, fumarate, glycine,Expand
The effect of membrane potential on the redox state of cytochromeb561 in antimycin-inhibited submitochondrial particles
TLDR
The oxidation of cytochromeb561 by ATP was measured in submitochondrial particles inhibited by antimycin and the selective oxidation ofb561 is explained within the term of theQ cycle as a reflection of Δψ on the electron electrochemical potential. Expand
Interaction of a coupling factor from Rhodospirillum rubrum with coupling factor deficient chromatophores
TLDR
The coupling factor can bind to coupling factor deficient membranes without addition of magnesium ions and thus restore the photophosphorylation and Mg2+-ATPase activities of these vesicles. Expand
The oxidation of ascorbic acid and its reduction in vitro and in vivo
The outstanding chemical property of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is that it is a reducing agent. The suggestion is obvious that its physiological function may be associated with this property, and, ifExpand
The phosphorylation potential generated by respiring mitochondria.
TLDR
It was shown experimentally that the phosphorylation potential cannot be calculated from the ΔG of the redox couple, the respiratory-control ratio and the P:O ratio, as has been suggested in the literature. Expand
