The thermograms of mitochondrial metabolism of two kinds of fishes have been determined. From the thermograms, a thermokinetic equation ln(P/1-SP)=km﹒t+ln(P0/1-SP0) could be established for the mitochondrial metobolism. From this equation, the rate constants of activity recovery and activity decline were calculated. This equation is very significant for the study of mitochondrial metabolism.

Key words: Fish liver mitochondria, Microcalorimetry, Thermokinetics
