PMID:  923705     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The effect of frangulanine, a cyclopeptide alkaloid isolated from Hovenia dulcis Thunb., on mitochondrial swelling was studied. Frangulanine induced mitochondrial swelling in 0.15 M KCl solution at the concentration of 6.5 muM. The alkaloid showed ion selectivity on the induction of mitochondrial swelling. Upon addition of frangulanine, mitochondria underwent swelling in 0.15 M KCl or RbCl solution but in neither NaCl nor LiCl solution.
