Table 1 Effect of brain mitochondria (BM) and liver mitochondria (LM) on rate of peroxidation of unbound UCB by HRP (Kp)

From: Effect of bilirubin on cytochrome c oxidase activity of mitochondria from mouse brain and liver

  Kp  
  (mL·μg-1·min-1) vs control ( p )
Control a(n = 22) 0.406 ± 0.01  
BM b(n = 15) 0.399 ± 0.02 0.183
LM c(n = 16) 0.699 ± 0.03 < 0.001
  1. Kp was determined by method described in [23], to measure the coupled constant rate of bilirubin oxidation by HRP. aControl, no mitochondria; bBM, mouse brain mitochondria; cLM, mouse liver mitochondria.
