Abstract: Respiratory and phosphorylation functions of rat brain mitochondria was studied under conditions insulin shock and after its treatment with glucose or glutamate (in combination with inhalation of hypercapnic gas mixture - air enriched with 7% СО2). Certain differences in the effects of the applied agents were found. Phosphorylation ability of mitochondria did not reach the normal level even one day after both ways of convulsive state treatment. Some respiratory parameters suggest that unfavorable changes in the respiratory chain functioning mainly occur at the respiratory chain complex I.
