Abstract

P/O ratios of rat liver mitochondria were measured with particular attention to systematic errors. Corrections for energy loss during oxidative phosphorylation were made by measurement of respiration as a function of mitochondrial membrane potential. The corrected values were close to 1, 0.5, and 1 at the three coupling sites, respectively. These values are consistent with recent measurements of mitochondrial proton transport.
