 Title    Isolation and Respiratory A ssay o f Earthworm Body W all M itochondria  
 Abstract    Out o f several media tested, KC1 m edium contain­ ing BSA was found to be most suitable for isolation o f functionally efficient mitochondria from earthworms. Respiration and oxidative phosphorylation in isolated mitochondria are demonstrated in the presence o f cyto­ chrome c and BSA in reaction medium. Introduction — The details o f the respiratory m etabolism in earthworm are yet to be established. There are only a few contradictory reports on the nature o f its respiratory enzyme components [1], W hile, cytochrome oxidase, suc-cinoxidase, succinate dehydrogenase were identified in earthworm tissue homogenates, the presence o f Kreb's cycle enzymes could not be demonstrated. Very little information is available on earthworm m itochondria except one report where it is isolated in 0.44 M m annitol [2]. Mitochondria from invertebrates like insects and crustaceans are isolated and characterized [3, 4]. But such methods cannot be extended to earthworms as it is known that conditions for isolation and assay o f m itochondria are highly system specific [5].
