Mitochondrial preparations


Mitochondrial preparations (mtprep) are isolated mitochondria (imt), tissue homogenate (thom), mechanically or chemically permeabilized tissue (permeabilized fibers, pfi) or permeabilized cells (pce). In mtprep the cell membranes are either removed (imt and smtp) or mechanically (thom) and chemically permeabilized (pfi), while the mitochondrial functional integrity and to a large extent the mt-structure is maintained. According to this definition, submitochondrial particles (smtp) are not a mtprep.

Abbreviation: mtprep
