The mitochondria of the myocardium.
Proton-translocating ATPases responsible for ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE synthesis in the MITOCHONDRIA. They derive energy from the respiratory chain-driven reactions that develop high concentrations of protons within the intermembranous space of the mitochondria.
Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER). Mitochondria are believed to have arisen from aerobic bacteria that established a symbiotic relationship with primitive protoeukaryotes. (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)

Electron transfer through the cytochrome system liberating free energy which is transformed into high-energy phosphate bonds.
An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Mitochondria in hepatocytes.

Nitric oxide inhibits cardiac energy production via inhibition of mitochondrial creatine kinase. (1/3149)

Nitric oxide biosynthesis in cardiac muscle leads to a decreased oxygen consumption and lower ATP synthesis. It is suggested that this effect of nitric oxide is mainly due to the inhibition of the mitochondrial respiratory chain enzyme, cytochrome c oxidase. However, this work demonstrates that nitric oxide is able to inhibit soluble mitochondrial creatine kinase (CK), mitochondrial CK bound in purified mitochondria, CK in situ in skinned fibres as well as the functional activity of mitochondrial CK in situ in skinned fibres. Since mitochondrial isoenzyme is functionally coupled to oxidative phosphorylation, its inhibition also leads to decreased sensitivity of mitochondrial respiration to ADP and thus decreases ATP synthesis and oxygen consumption under physiological ADP concentrations.  (+info)

Kinetics of transhydrogenase reaction catalyzed by the mitochondrial NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase (Complex I) imply more than one catalytic nucleotide-binding sites. (2/3149)

The steady-state kinetics of the transhydrogenase reaction (the reduction of acetylpyridine adenine dinucleotide (APAD+) by NADH, DD transhydrogenase) catalyzed by bovine heart submitochondrial particles (SMP), purified Complex I, and by the soluble three-subunit NADH dehydrogenase (FP) were studied to assess a number of the Complex I-associated nucleotide-binding sites. Under the conditions where the proton-pumping transhydrogenase (EC 1.6.1.1) was not operating, the DD transhydrogenase activities of SMP and Complex I exhibited complex kinetic pattern: the double reciprocal plots of the velocities were not linear when the substrate concentrations were varied in a wide range. No binary complex (ping-pong) mechanism (as expected for a single substrate-binding site enzyme) was operating within any range of the variable substrates. ADP-ribose, a competitive inhibitor of NADH oxidase, was shown to compete more effectively with NADH (Ki = 40 microM) than with APAD+ (Ki = 150 microM) in the transhydrogenase reaction. FMN redox cycling-dependent, FP catalyzed DD transhydrogenase reaction was shown to proceed through a ternary complex mechanism. The results suggest that Complex I and the simplest catalytically competent fragment derived therefrom (FP) possess more than one nucleotide-binding sites operating in the transhydrogenase reaction.  (+info)

Identity of heart and liver L-3-hydroxyacyl coenzyme A dehydrogenase. (3/3149)

Rat heart and liver cDNAs for precursor of L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase have been cloned and sequenced. The results indicate that these different rat organs express identical dehydrogenases. Furthermore, pig heart mRNA for L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase precursor was amplified by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and all the cDNA clones were found to encode a precursor of liver L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (X.-Y. He, S.-Y. Yang, Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1392 (1998) 119-126) but not the well-documented heart form of the dehydrogenase (K.G. Bitar et al., FEBS Lett. 116 (1980) 196-198). Sequencing data and other evidence establish that the pig, like the rat, has the same dehydrogenase in heart and liver. Since the size and structure of pig heart L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase are identical to the pig liver dehydrogenase, reports that relied on the published sequence of the pig heart dehydrogenase need to be re-evaluated. For example, the signature pattern of the L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase family is HXFXPX3MXLXE. Furthermore, the published crystal structure of the pig heart dehydrogenase that substantiated each subunit comprising 307 residues with a mercury-binding residue at position 204 (J.J. Birktoft et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 84 (1987) 8262-8266) must be re-examined in accordance with this revelation.  (+info)

Identification of cis-9,10-methylenehexadecanoic acid in submitochondrial particles of bovine heart. (4/3149)

Submitochondrial particles of bovine heart were hydrolyzed by phospholipase A2 and the products were analyzed by liquid chromatography electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry. We found a fatty acid with a molecular mass of 268 Da and a retention time longer than that of linoleic acid. Next, we synthesized organically cis-9,10-methylenehexadecanoic acid, which has a molecular mass similar to that of the extracted fatty acid, and characterized its high performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry profiles. Using these data we were able to identify endogenous cis-9,10-methylenehexadecanoic acid in rat and human heart and liver tissues that had been hydrolyzed by phospholipase A2. This fatty acid was not detected in tissue extracts that had not been hydrolyzed by phospholipase A2. Similar amounts of cis-9, 10-methylenehexadecanoic acid were measured in tissue extracts after total hydrolysis. These results suggest that cis-9, 10-methylenehexadecanoic acid is a fatty acid component, in the sn-2 position, of phospholipids in some mammalian tissue.  (+info)

Rat liver GTP-binding proteins mediate changes in mitochondrial membrane potential and organelle fusion. (5/3149)

The variety of mitochondrial morphology in healthy and diseased cells can be explained by regulated mitochondrial fusion. Previously, a mitochondrial outer membrane fraction containing fusogenic, aluminum fluoride (AlF4)-sensitive GTP-binding proteins (mtg) was separated from rat liver (J. D. Cortese, Exp. Cell Res. 240: 122-133, 1998). Quantitative confocal microscopy now reveals that mtg transiently increases mitochondrial membrane potential (DeltaPsi) when added to permeabilized rat hepatocytes (15%), rat fibroblasts (19%), and rabbit myocytes (10%). This large mtg-induced DeltaPsi increment is blocked by fusogenic GTPase-specific modulators such as guanosine 5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate), excess GTP (>100 microM), and AlF4, suggesting a linkage between DeltaPsi and mitochondrial fusion. Accordingly, stereometric analysis shows that decreasing DeltaPsi or ATP synthesis with respiratory inhibitors limits mtg- and AlF4-induced mitochondrial fusion. Also, a specific G protein inhibitor (Bordetella pertussis toxin) hyperpolarizes mitochondria and leads to a loss of AlF4-dependent mitochondrial fusion. These results place mtg-induced DeltaPsi changes upstream of AlF4-induced mitochondrial fusion, suggesting that GTPases exert DeltaPsi-dependent control of the fusion process. Mammalian mitochondrial morphology thus can be modulated by cellular energetics.  (+info)

Molecular cloning of cDNA encoding mitochondrial very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase from bovine heart. (6/3149)

AIM: To clone the cDNA encoding an isoenzyme of mitochondrial very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) from bovine heart lambda gt11 and lambda gt10 cDNA libraries. METHODS: The clone was isolated with immunoscreening technique and validated by (1) the microsequences of the N-terminus and three internal proteolytic fragments from the purified enzyme; (2) identification of the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (AD) signature sequence; and (3) high homology of the deduced peptide sequences, as expected, with those of rat liver mitochondrial VLCAD. RESULTS: The cDNA (2203 bp) corresponds to a approximately 2.4-kb mRNA band from the same tissue source revealed by a Northern blotting. The deduced peptide sequence of 655 amino acids (70,537 Da) is composed of a 40-amino acid mitochondrial leader peptide moiety (4,346 Da) and a 615-amino acid peptide as a mature protein (66,191 Da). A comparison of the peptide sequences in the AD family shows the major diversity in their signal sequences, suggesting a structural basis for their different mitochondrial locations. The catalytic sites are all highly conserved among VLCAD. Ser-251 analogous to and Cys-215 diversified to other family members. A pseudo-consensus sequence of leucine zipper was found in the C-terminal region from Leu-568 to Leu-589, implying a mechanism whereby the dimer of this protein is formed by zipping these leucine residues from the alpha-helixes of 2 monomers. CONCLUSION: The isolated cDNA clone encodes an isoenzyme of mitochondrial VLCAD in bovine heart.  (+info)

Rapid progression of cardiomyopathy in mitochondrial diabetes. (7/3149)

Cardiac involvement and its clinical course in a diabetic patient with a mitochondrial tRNA(Leu)(UUR) mutation at position 3243 is reported in a 54-year-old man with no history of hypertension. At age 46, an electrocardiogram showed just T wave abnormalities. At age 49, it fulfilled SV1 + RV5 or 6>35 mm with strain pattern. At age 52, echocardiography revealed definite left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, and abnormally increased mitochondria were shown in biopsied endomyocardial specimens. He was diagnosed as having developed hypertrophic cardiomyopathy associated with the mutation. However, at age 54, SV1 and RV5,6 voltages were decreased, and echocardiography showed diffuse decreased LV wall motion and LV dilatation. Because he had mitochondrial diabetes, the patient's heart rapidly developed hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and then it seemed to be changing to a dilated LV with systolic dysfunction. Rapid progression of cardiomyopathy can occur in mitochondrial diabetes.  (+info)

Identification of quinone-binding and heme-ligating residues of the smallest membrane-anchoring subunit (QPs3) of bovine heart mitochondrial succinate:ubiquinone reductase. (8/3149)

The smallest membrane-anchoring subunit (QPs3) of bovine heart succinate:ubiquinone reductase was overexpressed in Escherichia coli JM109 as a glutathione S-transferase fusion protein using the expression vector pGEX2T/QPs3. The yield of soluble active recombinant glutathione S-transferase-QPs3 fusion protein was isopropyl-1-thio-beta-D-galactopyranoside concentration-, induction growth time-, temperature-, and medium-dependent. Maximum yield of soluble recombinant fusion protein was obtained from cells harvested 3.5 h post-isopropyl-1-thio-beta-D-galactopyranoside (0.4 mM)-induction growth at 25 degrees C in 2.0% tryptone, 0.5% yeast extract, 10 mM NaCl, 2.5 mM KCl, 10 mM MgCl2, 20 mM glucose (SOC medium) containing 440 mM sorbitol and 2.5 mM betaine. QPs3 was released from the fusion protein by proteolytic cleavage with thrombin. Isolated recombinant QPs3 shows one protein band in sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis that corresponds to subunit V of mitochondrial succinate:ubiquinone reductase. Although purified recombinant QPs3 is dispersed in 0.01% dodecylmaltoside, it is in a highly aggregated form, with an apparent molecular mass of more than 1 million. The recombinant QPs3 binds ubiquinone, causing a spectral blue shift. Upon titration of the recombinant protein with ubiquinone, a saturation behavior is observed, suggesting that the binding is specific and that recombinant QPs3 may be in the functionally active state. Two amino acid residues, serine 33 and tyrosine 37, in the putative ubiquinone binding domain of QPs3 are involved in ubiquinone binding because the S33A- or Y37A-substituted recombinant QPs3s do not cause the spectral blue shift of ubiquinone. Although recombinant QPs3 contains little cytochrome b560 heme, the spectral characteristics of cytochrome b560 are reconstituted upon addition of hemin chloride. Reconstituted cytochrome b560 in recombinant QPs3 shows a EPR signal at g = 2.92. Histidine residues at positions 46 and 60 are responsible for heme ligation because the H46N- or H60N-substituted QPs3 fail to restore cytochrome b560 upon addition of hemin chloride.  (+info)

Short-term consumption of a high-fat diet impairs exercise capacity in both rats and humans, and increases expression of the mitochondrial uncoupling protein, UCP3, in rodent cardiac and skeletal muscle via activation of the transcription factor, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα). Unlike long-chain fatty acids however, medium-chain fatty acids do not activate PPARα and do not increase muscle UCP3 expression. We therefore investigated exercise performance and cardiac mitochondrial function in rats fed a chow diet (7.5% kcal from fat), a long-chain triglyceride (LCT) rich diet (46% kcal from LCTs) or a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) rich diet (46% kcal from MCTs). Rats fed the LCT-rich diet for 15 days ran 55% less far than they did at baseline, whereas rats fed the chow or MCT-rich diets neither improved nor worsened in their exercise capacities. Moreover, consumption of an LCT-rich diet increased cardiac UCP3 expression by 35% and decreased oxidative phosphorylation efficiency,

PY - 2004/8. Y1 - 2004/8. N2 - Background: Mitochondrial calcium overload is an important factor in defining ischemia/reperfusion injury. Since pre-menopausal women are relatively protected from ischemia and heart disease, we tested the hypothesis that gender differences alter Ca2+ handling in rat cardiac mitochondria. Methods: Using cardiac mitochondria isolated from male, female, and ovariectomized Sprague-Dawley rats, we measured mitochondrial calcium transport, redox state, and membrane potential (Δψm) during exposure to a calcium bolus. Redox state was modulated using either succinate (S) or succinate and pyruvate (SP) as substrates. Results: Net Ca2+ uptake rates were significantly lower in female than male mitochondria using SP, substrate conditions that resulted in a lower redox state (NADH/NAD+). ...

Author(s): Lu, Xiyuan; Kwong, Jennifer Q; Molkentin, Jeffery D; Bers, Donald M | Abstract: Mitochondria produce ATP, especially critical for survival of highly aerobic cells, such as cardiac myocytes. Conversely, opening of mitochondrial high-conductance and long-lasting permeability transition pores (mPTP) causes respiratory uncoupling, mitochondrial injury, and cell death. However, low conductance and transient mPTP openings (tPTP) might limit mitochondrial Ca(2+) load and be cardioprotective, but direct evidence for tPTP in cells is limited.To directly characterize tPTP occurrence during sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) release in adult cardiac myocytes.Here, we measured tPTP directly as transient drops in mitochondrial [Ca(2+)] ([Ca(2+)]mito) and membrane potential (ΔΨm) in adult cardiac myocytes during cyclic sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca release, by simultaneous live imaging of 500 to 1000 individual mitochondria. The frequency of tPTPs rose at higher [Ca(2+)]mito, [Ca(2+)]i, with 1 μmol/L peroxide

Mitochondria replicate their DNA and divide mainly in response to the energy needs of the cell. In other words, their growth and division is not linked to the cell cycle. When the energy needs of a cell are high, mitochondria grow and divide. When the energy use is low, mitochondria are destroyed or become inactive. At cell division, mitochondria are distributed to the daughter cells essentially randomly during the division of the cytoplasm. Mitochondria divide by binary fission similar to bacterial cell division; unlike bacteria, however, mitochondria can also fuse with other mitochondria.[37][52] Mitochondrial genes are not inherited by the same mechanism as nuclear genes. At fertilization of an egg cell by a sperm, the egg nucleus and sperm nucleus each contribute equally to the genetic makeup of the zygote nucleus. In contrast, the mitochondria, and therefore the mitochondrial DNA, usually comes from the egg only. The sperms mitochondria enters the egg but does not contribute genetic ...
I have heard a lot of talk about mitochondria, a reader tweets. What is it and why is it so important?. I love telling people about mitochondria. Discovering the importance of mitochondria and how to optimize their function was a huge part of my personal healing journey. Mitochondria are key energy sources for our bodies. They are tiny factories housed within our cells that take the foods we eat and the oxygen we breathe and convert them into energy.. That energy is called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, and it is used to support every function in our bodies.. Each cell holds hundreds or thousands of mitochondria; they are found in greater concentrations in active organs and tissues like the heart, brain, and muscles.. In fact, we have more than 100,000 trillion mitochondria in our bodies, and each one contains 17,000 little assembly lines for making ATP. Mitochondria are where metabolism happens.. So, when your mitochondria arent working properly, your metabolism runs less efficiently and ...
Ox heart is a superb, flavoursome cut, but now largely forgotten and underused, Ox Heart is slightly similar to liver in texture and taste.
Nonetheless it is conceivable that there could be aberrant mitochondria that are not damaged or free radical generating but have consequences for cellular function that can be very dangerous at specific ages. Some neurologic disorders appear to be like that, where eventually there arent enough optimal mitochondria so eventually energy failure ensues which is collapse of the proton gradient which is death. There is a strong relationship between Parkinsons and mitochondrial death, and Ive read studies highlighting how failure of transporting mitochondria back to the cell body, presumably for mitophagy, is blocked early in the development of Alzheimers, the implication being that these surviving mitochondria should have been killed but are now generating problems for the cell, if only because of inefficient energy generation and the organelles literally pile up in the axon, further inhibiting transport processes ...
5-HT has been reported to possess significant effects on cardiac activities, but activation of 5-HTR on the cell membrane failed to illustrate the controversial cardiac reaction. Because 5-HT constantly comes across the cell membrane via 5-HT transporter (5-HTT) into the cytoplasm, whether 5-HTR is functional present on the cellular organelles is unknown. Here we show 5-HTR3 and 5-HTR4 were located in cardiac mitochondria, and regulated mitochondrial activities and cellular functions. Knock down 5-HTR3 and 5-HTR4 in neonatal cardiomyocytes resulted in significant increase of cell damage in response to hypoxia, and also led to alternation in heart beating. Activation of 5-HTR4 attenuated mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake under the both normoxic and hypoxic conditions, whereas 5-HTR3 augmented Ca2+ uptake only under hypoxia. 5-HTR3 and 5-HTR4 exerted the opposite effects on the mitochondrial respiration: 5-HTR3 increased RCR (respiration control ratio), but 5-HTR4 reduced RCR. Moreover, activation of ...

1. The respiration rate of rat liver mitochondria was stimulated by up to 70% when the extramitochondrial Ca2+ concentration was raised from 103 to 820 nM. This occurred when pyruvate, 2-oxoglutarate, or threo-(Ds)-isocitrate was employed as substrate, but not when succinate was used. 2. Ruthenium Red prevented the stimulation of mitochondrial respiration by extramitochondrial Ca2+, showing that the effect required Ca2+ uptake into the mitochondrial matrix. 3. Starvation of rats for 48 h abolished the stimulation of mitochondrial respiration by extramitochondrial Ca2+ when pyruvate was used as substrate, but did not affect the stimulation of 2-oxoglutarate oxidation by extramitochondrial Ca2+. 4. Our findings are in accord with proposals that oxidative metabolism in liver mitochondria may be stimulated by Ca2+ activation of intramitochondrial dehydrogenases. ...
Among putative mechanisms of cardioprotection,1 the hypothesis of mitochondrial Ca2+ handling seems to be plausible. Indeed, Holmuhamedov et al3 showed that diazoxide inhibited the Ca2+ uptake and depolarized ΔΨm in isolated cardiac mitochondria. Their results, however, raise methodological criticism that mitoKATP channels would be already open because of the ATP-free assay condition.9 Conflicting observations in isolated cardiac mitochondria have been reported, showing that diazoxide has little effect on Ca2+ uptake and ΔΨm.4 Thus, the results so far obtained from isolated mitochondria remain inconclusive.. The present results demonstrate that diazoxide does not affect the basal [Ca2+]m in intact rat ventricular myocytes, which is inconsistent with previous findings observed in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes.3 Although such disparity may stem from the difference in cell preparations used, our results suggest that the mitoKATP channel does not play a significant role in regulating [Ca2+]m under ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Use of protease sensitivity to probe the conformations of newly synthesised mutant forms of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase. AU - Azzariti, Amalia. AU - Giannattasio, Sergio. AU - Doonan, Shawn. AU - Merafina, Riccardo S.. AU - Marra, Ersilia. AU - Quagliariello, Ernesto. PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - Sensitivity to digestion with pronase has been used to show that the precursor form of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase, the form lacking the N-terminal presequence, that with a deletion of the first 9 residues and mutants of the mature enzyme in which residue Cys-166 is mutated to alanine or serine, all retain unfolded conformations after synthesis in a reticulocyte lysate. In the presence of lysed mitochondria the various forms of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase retained their susceptibilities to pronase in a way that mirrored the efficiencies with which they are imported into intact mitochondria. The results are interpreted as showing that the presequence ...
The mitochondrial ATP sensitive K+ channel (mitoKATP) plays a significant role in mitochondrial physiology and protects against ischemic reperfusion injury in mammals. Although fish frequently face oxygen fluctuations in their environment the role of mitoKATP channel in regulating the responses to oxygen stress is rarely investigated in this class of animals. To elucidate if and how mitoKATP channel protects against hypoxia-reoxygenation (H-R)-induced mitochondrial dysfunction in fish, we first determined the mitochondrial bioenergetic effects of two key modulators of the channel, diazoxide and 5-hydroxydecanoate (5-HD), using a wide range of doses. Subsequently, the effects of low and high doses of the modulators on mitochondrial bioenergetics and volume under normoxia and after H-R using buffers with and without magnesium and ATP (Mg-ATP) were tested. In the absence of Mg-ATP (mitoKATP channel open) both low and high doses of diazoxide improved mitochondrial coupling but only the high dose of ...
We have investigated the role of the protein ubiquitous mitochondrial creatine kinase (uMtCK) in the formation and stabilization of inner and outer membrane contact sites. Using liver mitochondria isolated from transgenic mice, which, unlike control animals, express uMtCK in the liver, we found that the enzyme was associated with the mitochondrial membranes and, in addition, was located in membrane-coated matrix inclusions. In mitochondria isolated from uMtCK transgenic mice, the number of contact sites increased 3-fold compared with that observed in control mitochondria. Furthermore, uMtCK-containing mitochondria were more resistant to detergent-induced lysis than wild-type mitochondria. We conclude that octameric uMtCK induces the formation of mitochondrial contact sites, leading to membrane cross-linking and to an increased stability of the mitochondrial membrane architecture.. ...
Bovine complex I is an assembly of 46 different proteins. Seven of them are encoded in mitochondrial DNA, and the rest are nuclear gene products that are imported into the organelle. Fourteen of the nuclear encoded subunits have modified N termini. Many of these post-translational modifications have been deduced previously from intact protein masses. These assignments have been verified by mass spectrometric analysis of peptides. Thirteen of them are N-alpha-acetylated, and a 14th, subunit B18, is N-alpha-myristoylated. Subunit B18 forms part of the membrane arm of the complex, and the myristoyl group may attach subunit B18 to the membrane. One subunit, B12, has a particularly complex pattern of post-translational modification that has not been analyzed before. It is a mixture of the N-alpha-acetylated form and the form with a free N terminus. In addition, it has one, two, or three methyl groups attached to histidine residues at positions 4, 6, and 8 in various combinations. The predominant form ...

Substantially elevated blood D-lactate (DLA) concentrations are associated with neurocardiac toxicity in humans and animals. The neurological symptoms are similar to inherited or acquired abnormalities of pyruvate metabolism. We hypothesized that DLA interferes with mitochondrial utilization of L-lactate and pyruvate in brain and heart. Respiration rates in rat brain, heart and liver mitochondria were measured using DLA, LLA and pyruvate independently and in combination. In brain mitochondria, state 3 respiration was 53% and 75% lower with DLA as substrate when compared with LLA and pyruvate, respectively (p | 0.05). Similarly in heart mitochondria, state 3 respiration was 39% and 86% lower with DLA as substrate when compared with LLA or pyruvate, respectively (p | 0.05). However, state 3 respiration rates were similar between DLA, LLA and pyruvate in liver mitochondria. Combined incubation of DLA with LLA or pyruvate markedly impaired state 3 respiration rates in brain and heart mitochondria (p | 0.05)
Basic biology teaches that cells are the building blocks of life but a cell has building blocks too. These cell building blocks include organelles (organelles literally means little organs). In animal cells, mitochondria are among those organelles. Mitochondria are found in every cell that has a nucleus. In the human body, that means mitochondria are present in every cell except red blood cells. Mitochondria (the plural of mitochondrion) are often referred to as the powerhouses of the cell or the energy factories of the cell. They create energy for the cell, thus for our bodies. Think of mitochondria as the digestive system of a cell: they take in nutrients, break them down, and keep the cell full of energy. The energy that mitochondria create is called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Mitochondria make ATP through a sequence of reactions called the Krebs cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle or TCA cycle (tricarboxylic acid cycle). The final and perhaps most important step of this Krebs ...
Competing models of mitochondrial energy metabolism in the heart are highly disputed. In addition, the mechanisms of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and scavenging are not well understood. To deepen our understanding of these processes, a computer model was developed to integrate the biophysical processes of oxidative phosphorylation and ROS generation. The model was calibrated with experimental data obtained from isolated rat heart mitochondria subjected to physiological conditions and workloads. Model simulations show that changes in the quinone pool redox state are responsible for the apparent inorganic phosphate activation of complex III. Model simulations predict that complex III is responsible for more ROS production during physiological working conditions relative to complex I. However, this relationship is reversed under pathological conditions. Finally, model analysis reveals how a highly reduced quinone pool caused by elevated levels of succinate is likely responsible for the ...

Mitochondria are usually considered to be the powerhouses of the cell and to be responsible for the aerobic production of ATP. However, many eukaryotic organisms are known to possess anaerobically functioning mitochondria, which differ significantly from classical aerobically functioning mitochondria. Recently, functional and phylogenetic studies on some enzymes involved clearly indicated an unexpected evolutionary relationship between these anaerobically functioning mitochondria and the classical aerobic type. Mitochondria evolved by an endosymbiotic event between an anaerobically functioning archaebacterial host and an aerobic α-proteobacterium. However, true anaerobically functioning mitochondria, such as found in parasitic helminths and some lower marine organisms, most likely did not originate directly from the pluripotent ancestral mitochondrion, but arose later in evolution from the aerobic type of mitochondria after these were already adapted to an aerobic way of life by losing their ...
In sexual reproduction only the female gamete (ovum) has mitochondria when the gametes eventually fertilise, this is because the male gamete (sperm) draws upon all of its mitochondria for locomotion, to aid its travel to the ovum (egg). Furthermore, mitochondria in relation to the structure of the sperm is wrapped tightly around the flagellum in the sperm and is fixed in this position, to enable the mitochondria to comply with the sperms unusually high ATP consumption[3]. The mitochondrion is the site of the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain in eukaryotic organisms. It has a variable diameter from 0.5 to 1 micrometer thus can be easily seen under a light microscope. Using time-lapse micro-cinematography, it has been established that mitochondria can alter their shape continuously, and are also able to fuse and separate with other mitochondria[4]. It is surrounded by two phospholipid membranes: the outer and inner membrane. The inner membrane is folded inwards to form cristae and it ...

Great question. Mitochondria are different from the other cellular components in your body. Thats because scientists believe that mitochondria, at one point, were their own independent organisms. They were once bacteria that, somewhere along the way, decided to work together. Because mitochondria evolved doing their own thing, they have their own DNA, and that means they can produce their own proteins and enzymes. Amazing, right?. When your mitochondria are functioning in tip-top shape, they form the foundation for a healthy life, affecting your mood, energy and focus levels, and much, much more. The important takeaway here is that healthy mitochondria provide your body with the steady flow of energy it needs to perform its best in a variety of functions. Its not just the quantity of mitochondria that makes the biggest difference either, its the quality as well.. Because different parts of your body burn massive amounts of energy, when mitochondria production starts to slow, or the quality of ...

Understanding the precise mechanisms by which mutSOD1 destroys multiple mitochondrial functions and identifying the mitochondrial targets of mutSOD1, is crucial to develop target-based therapies to rescue mitochondria in mutSOD1-ALS. We provide evidence that (1) the primary target of mutSOD1 at the mitochondria is Bcl-2, (2) the initiating event in mutSOD1-induced mitochondrial dysfunction is the formation of the toxic mutSOD1/Bcl-2 complex, and (3) preventing formation of the mutSOD1/Bcl-2 complex restores mitochondrial ADP permeability ex vivo in mitochondria of symptomatic mutSOD1-G93A ALS mice as well as mitochondrial bioenergetics in situ in mutSOD1-expressing cells, ultimately preventing mutSOD1-induced cell loss. Thus, our data provide a solid rationale for the development of a targeted therapeutic approach that, by affecting the key steps leading to mitochondrial demise, may prove effective in broadly restoring mitochondrial functions, and eventually, preventing or delaying motor neuron ...
When were talking about looking for ways to cure cancer, we fundamentally need to understand what makes cells grow and die and the mitochondrion is right at the heart of these issues, said Carla Koehler, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry, Jonsson Cancer Center researcher and co-senior author of the study. This new and novel pathway for transporting RNA into the mitochondria is shedding new light on the evolving role and importance of mitochondria function in normal physiology and a wide variety of diseases. If we can understand how this pathway functions in healthy cells we could potentially uncover defects that help in transforming normal cells into cancer cells. ...
