MitoPedia and Bioblast

The term MitoPedia expresses the link to Wikipedia. We use the MediaWiki software for generating a bottom-up database and glossaries. The 'Bioblast community' of mitochondrial experts is cordially invited to active participation - a vision that may develop further in the future. To make this possible, the Oroboros-team continues to work on the Bioblast website as an information synthase - in the spirit of Gentle Science and as a branch of the Oroboros Ecosystem. ~ Gnaiger Erich 09:20, 18 May 2014 (CEST)

MitoPedia - high-resolution terminology, matching measurements at high-resolution

MitoPedia term: Dihydro-orotate dehydrogenase - another respiratory Complex at the Q-junction.

» Respiratory control ratios beyond the RCR - coupling:

P-L control efficiency P-L control efficiency,

R-L control efficiency R-L control efficiency,

E-L coupling efficiency E-L coupling efficiency.
