Moore AL, Dry IB, Wiskich TJ (1988) FEBS Lett

Abstract: We have investigated the dependence of the respiratory rate on the redox poise of the quinone pool in isolated turnip and pea leaf mitochondria. A linear relationship has been found between these two parameters during succinate oxidation under both state 3 and 4 conditions. When succinate is oxidised by the alternative oxidase the dependence of oxygen uptake on the steady-state reduction level of quinone is markedly non-linear. These results are discussed within the frame-work of a homogeneous quinone pool.
