The empirically observed relationship between the activity of membrane-bound enzyme systems and transporters and the external osmotic pressure offered a direct method to assess the reflection coefficients to polyols in respiring mitochondria. These osmotically modulated reaction rates varied with the molecular mass of the external polyol similar to volume and solute fluxes across dialysis membranes. The equivalent pore radii of mitochondria were shown to increase with respiration (and… CONTINUE READING
