Cardiolipin, Perhydroxyl Radicals, and Lipid Peroxidation in Mitochondrial Dysfunctions and Aging

Figure 5

Production of superoxide radicals by rat heart mitochondria-oxidizing palmitoyl-carnitine. Designations: 1. supporting substrate only; 2. palmitoyl-carnitine only, and 3. . Substrates: Figure 5(a) (), Figure 5(b) (), and Figure 5(c). (succinate 5 mM). Experimental conditions are described in [93]. The incubation medium contained Amplex Red 2 μM, horse radish peroxidase 2 units, substrates as indicated above, and volume 1 ml. The reaction was initiated by addition of 50 μg of mitochondria. Initial rates were measured for 3 minutes. Numbers at the traces are the rates of H2O2 production in picomol H2O2/min/mg protein RHM. The rates were corrected for the time control rate with RHM incubated without added substrates. The figure was taken from [95].
