ATP synthase = phosphorylation system?

No, the phosphorylation system consists of adenine nucleotide translocase, phosphate carrier, and ATP synthase, which carry out the steps in the phosphorylation pathway.

O2k-Open SupportInfo: improve Can I use the same stock solutions for all reagents for different O2k-chamber volumes?

For some reagents, the concentration of the stock solution differs between the 2.0-mL and the 0.5-mL chamber (O2k-sV-Module) to facilitate a precise volume titration.

What is the O2 solubility factor of the medium (FM) and why is it important?

FM expresses the effect of the salt concentration on oxygen solubility relative to pure water, and varies depending on the temperature and composition of the medium. The correct FM needs to be entered in DatLab when performing an air calibration.

New year, new state? What is REN state?

REN state is now distinguished from ROX state: REN is measured in mitochondrial preparations without addition of substrates, whereas ROX is due to oxidative side reactions remaining after inhibition of the electron transfer pathway.

Why electron transfer pathway and not electron transfer chain?

The term “chain” suggests a linear sequence, however, the convergence of electron flow at the Q-junction indicates a higher degree of complexity, making “pathway” a more fitting descriptor.

Can the S-pathway O2 flux be derived by subtracting N-pathway O2 flux from NS-pathway O2 flux?

No, the sum of the O2 fluxes measured in the presence of NADH-linked substrates alone and succinate as the single substrate is typically higher than using a combination of all these substrates. This effect is described as incomplete additivity:
