Abstract: We present unexpected and novel results revealing that glutamate-dependent oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) of brain mitochondria is exclusively and efficiently activated by extramitochondrial Ca2+ in physiological concentration ranges (S0.5= 360 nM Ca2+). This regulation was not affected by RR, an inhibitor of the mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter. Active respiration is regulated by glutamate supply to mitochondria via aralar, a mitochondrial glutamate/aspartate carrier with regulatory Ca2+-binding sites in the mitochondrial intermembrane space providing full access to cytosolic Ca2+. At micromolar concentrations, Ca2+ can also enter the intramitochondrial matrix and activate specific dehydrogenases. However, the latter mechanism is less efficient than extramitochondrial Ca2+ regulation of respiration/OXPHOS via aralar. These results imply a new mode of glutamate-dependent OXPHOS regulation as a demand-driven regulation of mitochondrial function. This regulation involves the mitochondrial glutamate/aspartate carrier aralar which controls mitochondrial substrate supply according to the level of extramitochondrial Ca2+. โ€ข Keywords: Glutamate/aspartate carrier aralar, Extramitochondrial Ca (2+), Brain mitochondria
