The analyzed proteins include the complex I or NADH dehydrogenase
subunits, the A and B subunits of complex II or succinate dehydrogenase, and various subunits of complex III or cytochrome bcl.
Among the identified proteins, we observed decreases in the expression of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPX); ATP synthase subunit O, mitochondrial (ATP5O); glutathione S-transferase Mu 5 (GSTM5), mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase
[ubiquinone] 1 alpha subcomplex subunit 10 (NDUFA10).
suum, primers were designed to amplify a partial sequence encoding NADH dehydrogenase
subunit 5: VMDL-F2 (5'-TGCTAAAGGTTGGGTTTATGGA-3') and M3-R (5'-CCTACTGCGTAGAGCCAGA-3').
Boveris, "Generation of superoxide anion by the NADH dehydrogenase
of bovine heart mitochondria," Biochemical Journal, vol.
was assayed according to the method of Minakami et al.
In our study, DNA sequences of the mitochondrial protein-coding NADH dehydrogenase
subunit 5 gene (ND5) were acquired to assess the genetic diversity and female effective population size ([N.
Briefly, primers were used to amplify a 470 base pair region of the NADH dehydrogenase
subunit 1 (NAD1) mitochondrial gene (Bowles and McManus 1993).
The plastid ndh genes encode components of the thylakoid Ndh complex, which is analogous to the NADH dehydrogenase
or complex I of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and catalyzes the transfer of electrons from NADH to plastoquinone [32,6,28].
On the other hand, oxidative phosphorylation functions; the activity of NADH dehydrogenase
and succinate dehydrogenase in respiratory chain of liver mitochondria were normalized in rats with alloxan diabetes after oral administration of ecdysterone (Tashmukhamedova et al.
In the bovine heart mitochondrial preparations the authors demonstrated that a Dox dose of 25-50 [mu] moles represents the oxidative damage and as they cited this appears to be localized between the NADH dehydrogenase
flavin and iron-sulphur center N-1, SDH and cytochrome (oxidase activities) where these two enzymatic activities were shown by Dox by the above authors.
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring hydrophobic substance that is involved in electron transfer across the mitochondrial membrane from the NADH dehydrogenase
complex and the succinate-Q reductase complex to cytochrome c (Cephalalgia 2002;22:137-41).
activity was measured with a spectrophotometer (Lambda 3B uv/vis, Perkin-Elmer Corporation, Norwalk, CT) at 25 [degrees] C.
