Cyanide-insensitive and Cyanide-sensitive O2 Uptake in Wheat I. GRADIENT-PURIFIED MITOCHONDRIA

Cyanide-insensitive and Cyanide-sensitive O2 Uptake in Wheat I. GRADIENT-PURIFIED MITOCHONDRIA Alan H. Goldstein 2 , James O. Anderson and Robert G. McDaniel Department of Plant Sciences, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 Abstract The mitochondrial fraction isolated from durum wheat seedlings by differential centrifugation demonstrated antimycin A- or cyanide-insensitive O 2 uptake. Further purification of this initial mitochondrial pellet using a linear Percoll (Pharmacia) density gradient separated the mitochondria into two bands of physiologically distinct activity. Based on the usual mitochondrial respiratory criteria of ADP/O and respiratory control values, these fractions were qualitatively similar to the crude pellet. However, we observed no antimycin A-insensitive O 2 uptake in either gradient band. Antimycin A-insensitive O 2 consumption could be restored to the upper gradient band of mitochondria by the addition of linoleic acid. This activity was inhibited either by salicylhydroxamic acid or propyl gallate, a known lipoxygenase inhibitor. Likewise, addition of linoleic acid to the crude mitochondrial pellet elicited a 4- to 5-fold increase in O 2 uptake. This O 2 consumption was insensitive to antimycin A and cyanide but was inhibited by either propyl gallate or salicylhydroxamic acid. Electron microscopic examination revealed that only the lower gradient band contained contamination-free mitochondria, which, in turn, lacked ability to oxidize linoleic acid. Antimycin A-insensitive O 2 consumption in the differential centrifugation fraction from germinating durum wheat seedlings decreased over 64 hours of development. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

Alan H. Goldstein 2 , James O. Anderson and Robert G. McDaniel Department of Plant Sciences, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721 Abstract The mitochondrial fraction isolated from durum wheat seedlings by differential centrifugation demonstrated antimycin A- or cyanide-insensitive O 2 uptake. Further purification of this initial mitochondrial pellet using a linear Percoll (Pharmacia) density gradient separated the mitochondria into two bands of physiologically distinct activity. Based on the usual mitochondrial respiratory criteria of ADP/O and respiratory control values, these fractions were qualitatively similar to the crude pellet. However, we observed no antimycin A-insensitive O 2 uptake in either gradient band. Antimycin A-insensitive O 2 consumption could be restored to the upper gradient band of mitochondria by the addition of linoleic acid. This activity was inhibited either by salicylhydroxamic acid or propyl gallate, a known lipoxygenase inhibitor. Likewise, addition of linoleic acid to the crude mitochondrial pellet elicited a 4- to 5-fold increase in O 2 uptake. This O 2 consumption was insensitive to antimycin A and cyanide but was inhibited by either propyl gallate or salicylhydroxamic acid. Electron microscopic examination revealed that only the lower gradient band contained contamination-free mitochondria, which, in turn, lacked ability to oxidize linoleic acid.
