Abstract

Data concerning metabolism of brain mitochondria are contradictory in more than one respect. It is beyond doubt that most of the problems are associated with the fact that crude mitochondrial fractions of the brain homogenate always contain other cellular elements, e.g. cell membrane fragments, synaptosomes, etc. (Klingenberg et al. 1959; Somogyi & Vincze, 1961; Gray & Whittaker, 1962; Jobsis, 1963; Abood, 1970; Cunningham & Bridgers, 1970).
