How to use

In Vitro:

SS-31 binds with high affinity to cardiolipin, an anionic phospholipid expressed on the inner mitochondrial membrane that is required for cristae formation. In addition, the SS-31/cardiolipin complex inhibits cytochrome c peroxidase activity, which catalyzes cardiolipin peroxidation and results in mitochondrial damage during ischemia, by protecting its heme iron.

In Vivo:

Pretreatment of rats with SS-31 protects cristae membranes during renal ischemia and prevents mitochondrial swelling. Prompt recovery of ATP on reperfusion leads to rapid repair of ATP-dependent processes, such as restoration of the actin cytoskeleton and cell polarity. Rapid recovery of ATP also inhibits apoptosis, protects tubular barrier function, and mitigates renal dysfunction.
