The first indication of the presence of ROS-sensitive modulatory thiols on the matrix-facing side of the PTP was revealed in isolated mitochondria through the use of chemical thiol-oxidants, such as diamide, arsenite anion (AsO), copper-o-phenanthroline, phenylarsine oxide (PhAsO), and [beta]-hydroxybutyrate, or thiol-modifiers, such as N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) or monobromobimane (MBM) [111-114].
