Energy relationships between cytosolic metabolism and mitochondrial respiration in rat heart

The American Journal of Physiology
K NishikiD F Wilson


Isolated rat heart was perfused with Langendorff's retrograde perfusion method, while the oxygen consumption and the left ventricular pressure were monitored continually. The steady-state contents of metabolites in the cardiac tissue, freeze clamped under various work-load conditions, were determined and the concentrations of free cytosolic ADP and AMP were calculated from the near equilibrium in creatine phosphokinase and adenylate kinase reactions. Increasing respiratory rate with increasing load was accompanied by a fall in the cytosolic free [ATP]/[ADP][Pi] but little change in the mitochondrial free [NAD+]/[NADH]. The free energy of ATP hydrolysis was calculated from the concentrations of the adenine nucleotides and compared with the values computed from the measured turnover number for cytochrome c and redox state of the mitochondrial NAD couple according to a mathematical model. The agreement between the two values was good over a wide range of metabolic conditions, which provides further support for the proposed near-equilibrium model of mitochondrial respiration with control exerted at the cytochrome oxidase-oxygen reaction.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
