1 Energy Generation in Mitochondria and Chloroplasts
Chapter 7 Energy Generation in Mitochondria and Chloroplasts (1) Mitochondria: in all eukaryotic cells The relationship between the structure and function of mit. (2) Chloroplasts: in plant cells The relationship between the structure and function of chl. Mit: Oxidative phosphorylation → ATP Chl: Photosynthesis → ATP + NADPH → Sugar


3 1. Mitochondria and oxidative phosphorylation
A. Mitochondrial structure and function The size and number of mitochondria reflect the energy requirements of the cell. Figure 7-4 Relationship between mitochondria and microtubules.

5 Figure 7-5 Localization of mitochondria near sites of high ATP utilization in cardiac muscle and a sperm tail. 

6 Inner and outer mitochondrial membranes enclose two spaces: the matrix and intermembrane space.

7 Inner membrane (Impermeability):
Outer membrane: Contains channel-forming protein, called Porin Permeable to all molecules of 5000 daltons or less. Inner membrane (Impermeability): Contains proteins with three types of functions: (1) Electron-transport chain: Carry out oxidation reactions; (2) ATP synthase: Makes ATP in the matrix; (3) Transport proteins: Allow the passage of metabolites Intermembrane space: Contains several enzymes use ATP to phosphorylate other nucleotides. Matrix: Enzymes; Mit DNA, Ribosomes, etc.

8 B. Specific functions localized within the Mit by disruption of the organelle and fractionation
Figure 14-6 Fractionation of purified mitochondria into separate components.    These techniques have made it possible to study the different proteins in each mitochondrial compartment. The method shown, which allows the processing of large numbers of mitochondria at the same time, takes advantage of the fact that in media of low osmotic strength water flows into mitochondria and greatly expands the matrix space (yellow). While the cristae of the inner membrane allow it to unfold to accommodate the expansion, the outer membranewhich has no folds to begin withbreaks, releasing a structure composed of only the inner membrane and the matrix.

10 2. Molecular basis of oxidative phosphorylation

11 A. Molecular basis of oxidation: Electron-
transport chain

12 B. Molecular basis of phosphorylation: ATP synthase
The structure of the ATP synthase F1 particle is the catalytic subunit; The F0 particle attaches to F1 and is embedded in the inner membrane. F1: 5 subunits in the ratio 3:3:1:1:1 F0: 1a:2b:12c

13 F1 particles have ATP synthase activity

14 Proton translocation through F0 drives ATP synthesis by F1: Binding Change Model and rotational catalysis Boyer proposed in 1979, and was greatly stimulated by the publication in 1994 of the structure for F1 complex (X-ray) from bovine heart mitochondria

15 Direct experimental evidence supporting the rotational catalysis.
Japan researcher, Nature 386: 300, 1997.

16 The ATP synthase is a reversible coupling device

17 Other roles for the proton-motive force in
addition to ATP synthase

18 C. Mithchell’s Chemiosmotic theory (1961)
The pH and electrical gradient resulting from transport of protons links oxidation to phosphorylation. When electrons are passed to carriers only able to accept electrons, the H+ is translocated across the inner membrane. More than 21026 molecules (>160kg) of ATP per day in our bodies.

19 Electrons pass from NADH or FADH2 to O2, the terminal electron acceptor, through a chain of carriers in the inner membrane (FMN, Fe-S center, Heme group Fe, CoQ); As electrons move through the electron-transport chain, H+ are pumped out across the inner membrane, and form Proton motive force; Electrons move through the inner membrane via a series of carriers of decreasing redox potential

20 Figure 7-26 An experiment demonstrating that the ATP synthase is driven by proton flow.    By combining a light-driven bacterial proton pump (bacteriorhodopsin), an ATP synthase purified from ox heart mitochondria, and phospholipids, vesicles were produced that synthesized ATP in response to light. If not all the detergent is removed, what will happen?

23 3. Chloroplast and photosynthesis
A. Comparison of a mitochondrion and a chloroplast. 

24 Figure 14-39 The chloroplast
Figure 14-39 The chloroplast.    This photosynthetic organelle contains three distinct membranes (the outer membrane, the inner membrane, and the thylakoid membrane) that define three separate internal compartments (the intermembrane space, the stroma, and the thylakoid space). The thylakoid membrane contains all of the energy-generating systems of the chloroplast. In electron micrographs this membrane appears to be broken up into separate units that enclose individual flattened vesicles (see Figure 14-40), but these are probably joined into a single, highly folded membrane in each chloroplast. As indicated, the individual thylakoids are interconnected, and they tend to stack to form aggregates called grana.

27 Figure 7-42 Photosynthesis in a chloroplast
Figure 7-42 Photosynthesis in a chloroplast.    Water is oxidized and oxygen is released in the photosynthetic electron-transfer reactions, while carbon dioxide is assimilated (fixed) to produce carbohydrate in the carbon-fixation reactions.

34 Carbon dioxide fixation and the synthesis of carbohydrate in C3 plants (Calvin cycle)

35 Figure 14-43 The initial reaction in carbon fixation
Figure 14-43 The initial reaction in carbon fixation.    This reaction, in which carbon dioxide is converted into organic carbon, is catalyzed in the chloroplast stroma by the abundant enzyme ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase. The product, 3-phosphoglycerate, is also an important intermediate in glycolysis: the two carbon atoms shaded in blue are used to produce phosphoglycolate when the enzyme adds oxygen instead of CO2。

36 The structure and function in C4 plants

37 4. Organelle DNA and protein importing
A. Organelle DNA The size range of organelle DNA is similar to that of viral DNAs. Mit DNA: from <6,000bp (plasmodium falciparum) ~ >300,000bp (some land plants). DNA of Mit genome (in mammals) ≈16,500bp(<0.001% of nuclear genome) ; Chl genomes are about 10 times larger and contain about 120 genes. Chl DNA: from 70,000to 200,000bp (genome of land plants);

38 Genes in mtDNA encode rRNAs, tRNAs, and some mitochondrial proteins
Human mt DNA: 16,569bp 2 rRNAs, 22 tRNAs, 13 polypeptides: NADH reductase. 7 sub. Cty b-c1 complex. 1 cytb Cyt oxidase. 3 subunits ATP synthase: 2 F0 sub Products of mt genes are not exported

39 The organization of the liverwort(地钱) Chl genome

40 B. Mit and Chl have their own genetic systems
Mit and Chl are organelles semiautocephaly. The synthesis of mt proteins is coordinated

41 C. The transport protein into Mit. And Chl.
Tree proteins translocators in Mit membranes: TOM, TIM,and OXA complex are multimeric membrane protein, that catalyze protein transport across Mit membrane, TOM, TIM stand for translocase of the outer and inner Mit membranes respectively. TOM functions across the outer membrane; TIM(TIM23 and TIM22) function across the inner membrane. OXA mediates the insertion of inner membrane proteins that are synthesized within the Mit. OXA also helps TOM and TIM to insert some proteins into the matrix.

42 Translocation of precursors to the matrix occurs at the sites where the outer and inner membranes are close together;

43 The protein import by Mit:
N-terminal signal sequence is recognized by receptors of TOM; The protein is translocated across both Mit membranes at or near special contact sites.

44 Only unfolded proteins can be imported into Mit;
Mit precursor proteins remain unfolded through interactions with hsp70 chaperone proteins in the cytosol after they are synthesized. ATP hydrolysis and H+ gradient are used to dtive protein import into Mit

45 Protein transport into the inner Mit membrane and the intermembrane space requires two signal sequences

46 Two signal sequences are required to direct proteins to the Thylakoid membrane in Chl.
Translocation into thylakoid space or thylakoid M can occur by any one of at least four routes.

47 5. The proliferation and origin of Mit and Chl.
A. Organelle growth and division determine the number of Mitochondria and Plastids in a cell Mit fission and fusion (a dividing Mit in a liver cell); Dividing or Budding of Mit. Chloroplasts: dividing and formation of chloroplasts from proplastids begins by the light-induced budding of the inner membrane.

48 B. Origin: The endosymbiont theory
Compare the ribosomal RNA with the base sequence of various bacterial rRNAs: Purple bactria-Mitochondria Cyanobacteria-Chloroplasts

49 Suggested evolutionary pathway for the origin of Mit.
