CHNO-fuel substrate


CHNO-fuel substrates are reduced carbon-hydrogen-nitrogen-oxygen substrates which are oxidized in the exergonic process of cell respiration. Mitochondrial pathways are stimulated by CHNO-fuel substrates feeding electrons into the ETS at different levels of integration and in the presence or absence of inhibitors acting on specific enzymes which are gate-keepers and control various pathway segments.

Abbreviation: CHNO
