The recent general acceptance that ATP synthesis may be coupled to electron transport by a system similar to that proposed by Mitchell when he formulated the chemiosmotic theory (96) has resulted in a broadening of the scope of research into the functioning of mitochondria from many sources. Research on plant mitoCopyright 1976. All rights reserved PALMER chondria has benefited from this change of emphasis and from the growing interest in the properties of mitochondria isolated from microorganisms (88). The introducÂ tion of new techniques has also made it possible to determine the nature, behavior, and location of the members of the respiratory chain more precisely. In this review I shall discuss advances made in this field, particularly with respect to the organizaÂ tion and interaction of the NADH dehydrogenase systems. I shall also speculate on the metabolic regulation and significance of these enzynes, CRITERIA FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF MITOCHONDRIAL PURITY AND INTEGRITY It has always been considered more difficult to isolate mitochondria from plant tissue than from animal tissue. This is due to three main factors: (a) the difficï¿½lty of breaking the tough cell wall without damaging the organelle; (b) the difficulty of controlling the pH because the
