Abstract: Cytochrome c oxidase (COX) activity of the rat heart was two- to sevenfold activated when the membrane integrity was disrupted by hypotonic swelling, freezing-thawing, or a detergent, indicating that a large portion of COX capacity in intact mitochondria is not active. The effect of detergent was tested in heart mitochondria isolated from 1-, 5-, 15-, 29-, and 60-d-old rats; activation by detergent was up to 20-fold in 1-d-old animals, whereas in mitochondria from 60-d-old rats it was only 7-fold. Our data indicate that the rat heart exhibits significant developmental changes dependent on downregulation of COX activity in the neonatal period.
