Abstract: We show that tetraphenylphosphonium inhibits oxidation of palmitoylcarnitine, pyruvate, malate, 2-oxoglutarate and glutamate in heart mitochondria in the range of concentration (1-5 mu M) commonly used for the determination of mitochondrial membrane potential. The inhibition of 2-oxoglutarate (but not other substrate) oxidation by tetraphenylphosphonium is dependent on the concentration of 2-oxoglutarate and on extramitochondrial free calcium, and the kinetic plots are consistent with a mixed type of inhibition. Our results indicate that tetraphenylphosphonium interacts with enzymes, specifically involved in the oxidation of 2-oxoglutarate, most possibly, 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase
