SUIT-026 O2 mt D063



Abbreviation: RET (respiratory control) of SUIT-026 AmR mt D064

Reference: B - SUIT-026 - Protocol for the respiratory control of SUIT-026 AmR mt D064

SUIT number: D063_1S;2Rot;3D;3c;4Ama

O2k-Application: O2

SUIT-026 O2 mt D063 has been designed to serve as a respiratory control of the SUIT-026 AmR mt D064 (protocol to study the RET-initiated ROS production in mitochondrial preparations (isolated mitochondria, tissue homogenate and permeabilized cells which are already permeabilized when they are added to the chamber).

  • Rox is the residual oxygen consumption in the ROX state, due to oxidative side reactions, estimated after addition of antimycin A (inhibitor of CIII). Rox is subtracted from oxygen flux as a baseline for all respiratory states, to obtain mitochondrial respiration (mt).

Strengths and limitations

  • This protocol serves as a respiratory control (since fluorescence dyes may inhibit components of the ET system) and quality control for the sample for SUIT-026 AmR mt D064.
+ Short protocol.
+ The addition of cytochrome c to assess the mt outer membrane integrity provides a quality control of the sample, which cannot be performed in the protocol with Amplex UltraRed.
- This protocol does not provide information about all the coupling control states (LEAK, OXPHOS and ET). However, it is possible to create a DLPU by additing an Event&Mark for the uncoupler titration (4U) after ADP (3D) to obtain ET-state.
