Changes in functional activity of mitochondria, in concentration of respiration enzymes and the state of internal membrane after slow freezing down to -5 degrees, -12 degrees, -21 degrees and -30 degrees of various tissue preparations of renal cortex (homogenates, slices, etc) were studied. The following phenomena were found: an increase in the rate of mitochondrial respiration at the second metabolic state, inhibition of electron transport most distinct during mitochondrial oxidation of alpha-ketoglutarate, a decrease in concentration of cytochromes, an increase in the internal membrane permeability. Considerable damage of mitochondria was observed at temperatures between -5 degrees and -12 degrees but the most pronounced impairment of the organelles occurred at -10 degrees -20 degrees, i. e. at the freezing point of free water in the suspension and at eutectic temperatures.
