mitochondrial respiration

The stages of cell respiration (citric acid cycle and cytochrome transport system) that take place in the mitochondria. Water is formed from oxygen and hydrogen ions, and energy is released. See: cell respiration

But, since no differences were found in liver mitochondrial respiration rates at State 3 and State 4 or in RCR values, the higher gain per kg of DMI of low RFI steers was not associated with a decrease in liver mitochondrial proton leak or the capacity for liver mitochondrial respiration.
Evidence that mitochondrial respiration is a source of potentially toxic oxygen free radicals in intact rabbit hearts subjected to ischemia and reflow.
Some allelopathic compounds are thought to interact with the mitochondrial membrane and to impair mitochondrial respiration directly.
Changes that occur with senescence can effect mitochondrial respiration.
Furthermore, reversible blockade of electron transport during ischaemia at complex I by amobarbital results in partial uncoupling of mitochondrial respiration thus allowing re-initiation of oxidative phosphorylation and prevention of cardiac injury during reperfusion (55).
The scientists cultured skin cells in two different nutrient environments - glucose, which provides energy through both glycolysis and respiration, or galactose, which forces cells to rely on mitochondrial respiration alone.
Another mechanism of GBE action is the stabilization of mitochondrial respiration.
The study also confirmed that [DELTA]mtDNA affected mitochondrial respiration chain function and resulted in oligozoospermia, asthenozoospermia and teratozoospermia leading to infertility in mice.
In May, diurnal course of dark respiration (Rd), corresponding to mitochondrial respiration (Amthor, 2000), showed similar dynamics among species and between environments (Figure 5).
Sequential addition of 3NP resulted in similar decline in the rate of respiration between the striatum and cerebellum in the young animals, whereas in older animals, similar concentration of 3NP more efficiently inhibits the mitochondrial respiration in the striatum than that of the cerebellum.
