Abstract

Summary

Homogenates of were fractionated by differential centrifugation. Mitochondria were sedimented quantitatively at 10 -min and accounted for approximately 10% of the total recovered protein. Catalase was found exclusively in the supernatant fraction whilst NADH: cytochrome oxidoreductase and -nitrophenylphosphatase were found in all the fractions. Zonal centrifugation confirmed that catalase was non-sedimentable. Clean separation of mitochondria was obtained in both high-speed and rate zonal experiments, but no NADH: cytochrome oxidoreductase activity could be detected in these organelles. Separation of large lysosomal vacuoles which contained -nitrophenylphosphatase activity was obtained and these were clearly resolved from mitochondria by both highspeed and rate zonal centrifugation.
