    • mutations in mit. DNA (mtDNA)
    • mito. in the zygote come from ovum; they have maternal inheritance
    • mothers transmit disease to children
    • males dont transmit because tail of sperm (contains the mito.) falls off during fertilization
    • mtDNA proteins are associated with e transport and atp synthesis

  49. 6.2 why and how malate aspartate shuttle moves nadh reducing cytosol to mito. matrix.
    • there is no transport for nadh in inner mito. memb.
    • nadh can be oxized to nad by cytoplasmic isozyme malate dehyd. as oxaloacetate is reduced to malate
    • malate is transported across inner membrane, mito. isozyme of malate dehydrogenase oxidizes to oxaloacetate as mito. nad is reduced to nadH
    • The nadh can be oxidized by complex I of ETC generating 3 atp through the coupled process of resp. and oxidative phosphor.
  50. 6.3 CO binds/inhibits complex IV of ETC. what effect should respiratory inhibitor have on oxidative phosphor.
    inhibition of ETC by resp. inhibitors such as CO result in inability to maintain proton gradient

    oxidative phosphor. is therefor inhibited
