the double biomembrane surrounding the mitochondrion.

mi·to·chon·dri·al mem·brane

(mī'tō-kon'drē-ăl mem'brān)
The mitochondrion has two membranes: the inner where the electron transport system is located and the outer, which acts as a gatekeeper and allows only certain molecules to enter.

However, while the MCT1 and the MCT4 isoforms were detected in the mitochondrial membrane of the SS portion, they were absent in the mitochondrial membrane of IMF.
Over the last years fluorescent colourants for measuring mitochondrial membrane potential (Aym) have been frequently used for monitoring of changes of this important physiologic parameter, as well as for assessment of its correlation with cells' ability to generate ATP by means of oxidative phosphorylation.
In both cases if a cell becomes initiated by either extracellular stimuli or intracellular signals, outer mitochondrial membranes become permeable to interneal cytochrome c, which is then released into the cytosol.
Damage to the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can lead to loss of expression of mitochondrial polypeptides, subsequent decrease in electron transport and increased generation of reactive oxygen species, loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, and release of signals for cell death (apoptosis).
To confirm that FA reduces ROS generation, we measured mitochondrial membrane potential (Alin) using the JC-1 assay, in which mitochondrial depolarization is indicated by a decrease in the red/green fluorescence intensity ratio (Fig.
