Lecture 05 – TCA cycle and Gluconeogenesis Mitochondria: energy maker ATP! - Outer membrane o Freely permeable to small molecules and ions - Inner membrane (with all the cristae) o Permeability barrier o Impermeable to most small molecules and ions, including H+ o Where the oxidation will be going on o Contains: respiratory electron carriers (complexes I- IV), ADP-ATP translocases, ATP synthases, other membrane transporters - Matrix o Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex o Citric acid cycle enzymes o Fatty acid beta-oxidation enzymes o Amino acid oxidation enxyme o DNA, ribosomes o Many other enzymes o ATP, ADP, Pi, Mg++, Ca++, K+ o Many soluble metabolic intermediate - Some molecules cannot be transported across the inner mitochondrial membrane. - Separate pools exist in the cytoplasm and in the matrix of the mitochondria. (can’t diffuse need specific transporters!) o NAD/NADH o FAD/FADH 2 o ADP/ATP ADP/ATP translocator (most abundant) It takes ATP or ADP from outside/inside and translocate them (takes ADP in mito and ATP out
