NADH-dependent tiglyl-CoA reduction in disrupted mitochondria of Ascaris suum.

The incubation of 2-methylcrotonyl-CoA with either succinate or NADH and disrupted Ascaris suum mitochondria results in substantial 2-methylbutyrate formation. Both membrane-bound and soluble components are required and the NADH-dependent reduction is rotenone sensitive, suggesting the involvement of the electron-transport chain. Rat liver mitochondria, incubated under similar conditions, did not catalyze 2-methylbutyrate formation. However, the substitution of A. suum mitochondrial membranes for rat liver membranes stimulated 2-methylbutyrate formation, emphasizing the differences in electron-transport in these two organelles.[1]
