    Succinate Dehydrogenase Activity of Mitochondria Student Name: Lolwa Alfouzan SMU Id Number: A00423662 Date:16, November 2017 Lab time: 2:30-5:29 Biol2321(cell biology) Lab Section:(01) Lab (7) Full lab report INTRODUCTION: Mitochondrion produces the energy that cell needs by breaking down sugars, fatty acids and amino acids to CO2 and H2O. In this process, which is called cellular respiration, the chemical energy in sugar, fatty acid and amino acid molecules is captured as ATP. Krebs

    percentage distribution of each enzyme in each fraction (Watson, 2016). The first enzyme marker used was Succinate Dehydrogenase which catalyses the oxidation of succinate to fumarate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle (Hollywood, et al., 2010). This cycle occurs within mitochondria and succinate dehydrogenase is specifically found within the inner mitochondrial membrane. Therefore, succinate dehydrogenase activity is an indicator of mitochondrial activity (Berg, et al., 2007). Mitochondria are large organelles

    Introduction In this Succinate Dehydrogenase (SDH) project, we were expected to learn the process of cell fractionation, the importance of the Bradford assay, how enzymes work what factors affect them, how to adequately micropipette, how to generate a proper hypothesis and test it, and finally, interpret our results and write a conclusion which answers the central question of this lab: how will the assigned reagent affect SDH activity? The SDH project was completed over a span of three weeks, where

  • The Consequences Of Inhibiting The Structure Of HREO ( TEO )

    functions, without the presence of TEO, FAD functions normally by grabs the hydrogen from Succinate and form FADH2. However, when TEO is present such inhibitor serves as a negative feedback (Shen, al. 2006). When too much Ubiquinone were produced, and not enough electrons are transferred fast enough to form ubiquinol, the excessive Ubiquinone can oxidize TEO to oxaloacetate (OAA) . OAA then inhibits succinate oxidation. TEO binds to FAD functions to inhibit in the form of Oxaloacetate the flavin

    Mapping Organelle Activity By Using Succinate Dehydrogenase Assay Cecilya Barba Lab Partners: Brenda Gutierrez, Marleen Apodaca, Date Conducted: 09/30/14 and 10/07/14 Bio02- Lab 05 Abstract: During this experiment, Introduction: A cell organelle is a membrane bound compartment inside all eukaryotic cells that function in a variety of important cellular processes. Organelles include the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, and the mitochondria. It is important to know information

  • The Effect Of Succinate Dehydrogenase On Mitochondrial Inner Membrane

    1673 Words  | 7 Pages

    Results Succinate dehydrogenase is an enzyme found in the mitochondrial inner membrane. The enzyme catalyzes the reaction of oxidizing its substrate, succinate, into fumarate via the removal of hydrogen ions from succinate. This oxidation is vital in the Krebs cycle. The krebs cycle is the second step in aerobic respiration of cells, which takes place in the matrix of the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells. This process is to oxidize pyruvate. figure 1: krebs cycle Succinate

    endurance activities. Type II is considered fast, glycolytic and even oxidative, but it is used more for sprint-related activities. In addition, phosphorylase, lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) are skeletal muscle enzymes along with myosin ATP, NADII2, tetrazolium reducatse, and alpha-gycerophosphate dehydrogenase help determine the muscle types based on these measurements. Purpose of the Study The purpose of the study is to measure the amount of these skeletal muscle enzymes

    LC50 of Insectisides Pirimicarb and Rotenone on Blowfly, Blowfly larvae, Woodlice and Daphni Abstract The LC50 of insecticides rotenone and pirimicarb were compared by testing blowfly, blowfly larva, woodlice and daphnia. Rotenone is a NADH dehydrogenase inhibitor causing death by oxidative stress however pirimicarb causes toxicity through acetylcholinesterase inhibition. It was found that rotenone had large toxic effects on daphnia, blowflies and woodlice but not maggots and pirimicarb had low

    quickly in individuals with a higher fat content. When alcohol is metabolized, acetaldehyde, a poisonous byproduct, is formed. Alcohol dehydrogenase breaks down alcohol into acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde dehydrogenase further breaks down the poisonous acetaldehyde into acetic acid. Some ethnicities, such as some Asian groups, have less active acetaldehyde dehydrogenase leading to a buildup of
