GM pathway control state

Description

GM
GM: Glutamate & Malate.

MitoPathway control state: NADH Electron transfer-pathway state

When glutamate&malate are added to isolated mitochondria or permeabilized cells, glutamate and transaminase are responsible for the metabolism of oxaloacetate, comparable to the metabolism with acetyl-CoA and citrate synthase.

Abbreviation: GM

Reference: Gnaiger 2014 MitoPathways - Chapter 3.4


MitoPedia concepts: SUIT state

GML

GM pathway in the LEAK state can be evaluated in the following SUIT protocols:

GMP

GM pathway in the OXPHOS state can be evaluated in the following SUIT protocols:

  • DL-Protocol for permeabilized cells (pce):

GME

GM pathway in the ET state can be evaluated in the following SUIT protocols:

  • DL-Protocol for permeabilized cells (pce):

Discussion

In human skeletal muscle mitochondria, respiration with GM in the presence of ADP (GMP) is identical or 10% higher than with PM (PMP). These results on isolated mitochondria agree with permeabilized fibres, although there are reports on respiratory capacity for PMP being 16% to 25% higher than for GMP. In fibroblasts, GMP supports a higher respiratory flux than PMP.
