A great diversity of cell-types, from bacteria to higher eukaryotic cells, exhibit some capacity for respiration even when inhibitors of the main phosphorylating respiratory chain are present at concentrations adequate to prevent electron transport by this route. The alternative pathways implicated in bacteria have been reviewed by Jurtshuk et al (1975), Jones (1977), and by Haddock & Jones (1977); those in the mitochondria of eukaryotic microorganisms and in higher plants and animals have been surveyed by Lloyd (1974), Henry & Nyns (1975) and by Solomos (1977). The present review highlights the historical development of the field, outlines the widespread occurrence of the phenomenon, traces the changing hypotheses for mechanisms, hints at physiological functions and lists some unsolved problems.
