  • Effects of ADP and Mg2+ on the ability of cyclosporin A to "reseal" mitochondria permeabilized by Ca2+ and P(i) have been studied. Cyclosporin A was completely ineffective, when ADP and Mg2+ were not included into the incubation medium. Both ADP and Mg2+ used at high concentrations potentiated the effect of cyclosporin A and prevented it reversal by carboxyatractylate. Data on the influence of different concentrations of ADP and Mg2+ on the resealing efficiency of cyclosporin A suggest that the true effector modulating the state of the Ca(2+)-dependent pore is the ADP-Mg2+ complex, but not ADP or Mg2+ used separately. The ability of non-hydrolyzable analogs of adenine nucleotides, ADP-S and ATP-S, to potentiate the resealing action of cyclosporin on mitochondria permeabilized by loading of different Ca2+ concentrations to that of ADP was compared. ATP-S was ineffective when the pore was induced by high concentrations of Ca2+. The results obtained are discussed in terms of hypothesis on the direct involvement of the ADP/ATP antiporter in regulation of the inner mitochondrial membrane Ca(2+)-dependent pore state.
