Hyperthyroidism sensitizes the heart for reperfusion injury. As known, mitochondrial permeability transition underlies reperfusion heart damage. This study was undertaken to explore the protective effect of octylguanidine (OG), an inhibitor of permeability transition, on hearts from hyperthyroid rats subjected to...

In yeast, Ca(2+) and long chain alkylguanidines interact with mitochondria modulating the opening of the yeast mitochondrial unspecific channel. Mammalians possess a similar structure, the mitochondrial permeability transition pore. The composition of these pores is under debate. Among other components...
