Effects Of Mitochondrion On The Mitochondrial Oxphos Machinery System

Decent Essays
Mitochondrion is considered the energy fuel of the cell. It is the primary site for the ATP production oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system. The mitochondrial OXPHOS machinery system is mainly composed of five multisubunits complexes (complexes I–V), which are produced by mitochondrial genome. Mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) has several essential physiological roles, in which, it is the main source of ATP production in the cell, in addition, its constituent enzyme complexes are a major source of ROS generation. Previous studies tested the effect of A on the mitochondrial bioenergetics function, and have concluded that direct exposure to A leads to significant impairment in the functionality of mitochondrial electron transport
