Details

The history of plant mitochondrial potassium channel/s began about ten years ago, when the first channel was described on a functional basis in durum wheat mitochondria. This channel was named Plant Mitochondrial Potassium Channel ATP sensitive (PmitoKATP) in analogy with the animal counterpart (mitoKATP). The PmitoKATP shows interesting features, being able to deeply affect mitochondrial bioenergetics and to control mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, thus playing a role as a mechanism acting against oxidative/environmental stresses in mitochondria/cell/plant. The intrinsic activity may vary significantly among channels, the pattern of modulators is different and even some of these channels are ATP-insensitive. This book discusses whether the observed differences may be attributed to the same channel differently modulated in mitochondria from different sources or it may be more appropriate to consider different channels.
