Stable and Unstable Bioenergetics in Vivo

  • B. Chance


This symposium, up to this point has focused on the biochemistry and molecular biology of mitochondrial energy conservation with the aspiration that the principles would be applicable to medical and biological problems in vivo. To this point, this paper attempts to realize this aspiration and to establish the applicability of basic principles of biochemistry in vivo in normal and genetically disturbed/altered metabolic states.
