OBJECTIVES: To investigate how the modulation of the oxidative balance affects cytotoxic therapies in glioblastoma, in vitro. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Human glioblastoma U251 and T98 cells and normal astrocytes C8D1A were loaded with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ). Mitochondrial superoxide ion (O2 - ) and H2 O2 were measured by fluorescence microscopy. OXPHOS performance was assessed in U251 cells with an oxytherm Clark-type electrode. Radio- and chemotherapy cytotoxicity was assessed by immunostaining of γH2AX (24 h), annexin V and nuclei morphology, at short (72 h) and long (15 d) time...

Despite aggressive therapies, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is associated with a less than 50% 5-year survival rate. Late stage HNSCC frequently consists of up to 80% cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF). We previously reported that CAF-secreted hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) facilitates HNSCC progression, however very little is known about the role of CAFs in HNSCC metabolism. Here we demonstrate that CAF-secreted HGF increases extracellular lactate levels in HNSCC via upregulation of glycolysis...

Stem cell (SC) dynamics within the human colorectal crypt SC niche remain poorly understood, with previous studies proposing divergent hypotheses on the predominant mode of SC self-renewal and the rate of SC replacement. Here we use age-related mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) defects to trace clonal lineages within human colorectal crypts across the adult life-course. By resolving the frequency and size distribution of OXPHOS-deficient clones, quantitative analysis shows that, in common with mouse, long-term maintenance of the colonic epithelial crypt relies on stochastic SC loss and replacement mediated by competition for limited niche access...

The papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common malignant tumor of the thyroid gland, with disruptive mutations in mitochondrial complex I subunits reported at very low frequency. Furthermore, metabolic diversity of PTC has been postulated owing to variable messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of genes encoding subunits of the oxidative phosphorylation (OXHPOS) complexes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the metabolic diversity of the OXPHOS system at the protein level by using immunohistochemical staining...

To establish alternative targeted therapies against triple negative (TN) breast cancer, (1) the energy metabolism and (2) the sensitivity of cell growth, migration and invasiveness towards metabolic, canonical and NSAID inhibitors was analyzed in MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-468, two TN metastatic breast cancer cell lines, under both normoxia (21% O2) and hypoxia (0.1% O2). For comparative purposes, analysis was also carried out in the less-metastatic breast MCF-7 cancer cells. Under normoxia, oxidative phosphorylation (OxPhos) was significantly higher (2-times) in MDA-MB-468 than in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 whereas their glycolytic fluxes and OxPhos and glycolytic protein contents were all similar...

Oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) generates ROS as a byproduct of mitochondrial complex I activity. ROS-detoxifying enzymes are made available through the activation of their antioxidant response elements (ARE) in their gene promoters. NRF2 binds to AREs and induces this anti-oxidant response. We show that cells from multiple origins performing OXPHOS induced NRF2 expression and its transcriptional activity. The NRF2 promoter contains MEF2 binding sites and the MAPK ERK5 induced MEF2-dependent NRF2 expression...

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups have been associated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), however, their underlying role in T2DM remains poorly elucidated. Here, we report that mtDNA haplogroup N9a was associated with an increased risk of T2DM occurrence in Southern China (OR 1.999 [95% CI 1.229-3.251], P = 0.005). By using transmitochondrial technology, we demonstrated that the activity of respiratory chain complexes were lower in the case of mtDNA haplogroup N9a (N9a1 and N9a10a) than in 3 non-N9a haplogroups (D4j, G3a2, and Y1), and that this could lead to alterations in mitochondrial function and mitochondrial redox status...

The mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system, which is based on the presence of five protein complexes, is in the very center of cellular ATP production. Complexes I to IV are components of the respiratory electron transport chain that drives proton translocation across the inner mitochondrial membrane. The resulting proton gradient is used by complex V (the ATP synthase complex) for the phosphorylation of ADP. Occurrence of complexes I to V is highly conserved in eukaryotes, with exceptions being restricted to unicellular parasites that take up energy-rich compounds from their hosts...

Parasitism is a life history strategy found across all domains of life whereby nutrition is obtained from a host. It is often associated with reductive evolution of the genome, including loss of genes from the organellar genomes [1, 2]. In some unicellular parasites, the mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) has been lost entirely, with far-reaching consequences for the physiology of the organism [3, 4]. Recently, mitogenome sequences of several species of the hemiparasitic plant mistletoe (Viscum sp.) have been reported [5, 6], revealing a striking loss of genes not seen in any other multicellular eukaryotes...

Proteolipid protein (PLP), besides its adhesive role in myelin, has been postulated to have multiple cellular functions. One well-documented function of PLP is regulation of oligodendrocyte (Olg) apoptosis. In contrast, DM20, an alternatively spliced product of the PLP1/Plp1 gene, has been proposed to have functions that are unique from PLP but these functions have never been elucidated. Here, we compare metabolism of PLP and DM20, and show that oxidative phosphorylation (OxPhos) was significantly decreased in Plp1 but not DM20 or EGFP expressing cells...

Lower physical performance is an important risk factor in hypokinetic-related chronic disease, metabolic syndrome, and muscle atrophy. Our previous research demonstrated that Platycodon grandiflorum-derived saponin (PS) protects against eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage and mitochondrial function-related peroxisomal acyl-coenzme A oxidase (ACOX-1) and carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT-1) in high-fat diet-induced non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, and it inhibits osteoclast differentiation. However, the effects of PS on physical performance remain unknown...

Background: The intratumoral heterogeneity of oxygen metabolism in combination with variable patterns of neovascularization (NV) as well as reprogramming of energy metabolism affects the landscape of tumor microenvironments (TMEs) in glioblastoma. Knowledge of the hypoxic and perivascular niches within the TME is essential for understanding treatment failure. Methods: Fifty-two patients with untreated glioblastoma (IDH1 wildtype) were examined with a physiological MRI protocol including a multiparametric quantitative blood-oxygen-level-dependent (qBOLD) approach and vascular architecture mapping (VAM)...

A deficient activity of one or more of the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) enzyme complexes leads to devastating diseases, with high unmet medical needs. Mitochondria, and more specifically the OXPHOS system, are the main cellular production sites of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Increased ROS production, ultimately leading to irreversible oxidative damage of macromolecules or to more selective and reversible redox modulation of cell signalling, is a causative hallmark of mitochondrial diseases...

Many mutations in genes encoding proteins such as parkin, PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1), protein deglycase DJ-1 (DJ-1 or PARK7), leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), and α-synuclein have been linked to familial forms of Parkinson's disease (PD). The consequences of these mutations, such as altered mitochondrial function and pathological protein aggregation, are starting to be better understood. However, little is known about the mechanisms explaining why alterations in such diverse cellular mechanisms lead to the selective loss of dopamine (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra (SNc) in the brain of individuals with PD...

A computer model of the skeletal muscle bioenergetic system was used to study the regulation of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in electrically-stimulated and cortically-stimulated skeletal muscle. Two types of the dependence of the intensity of each-step activation (ESA) of OXPHOS complexes on ATP usage activity were tested: power-type dependence and saturating-type dependence. The dependence of muscle oxygen consumption ([Formula: see text]), phosphocreatine (PCr), cytosolic ADP, ATP, inorganic phosphate (Pi), pH and τp (characteristic transition time) of the principal component of the muscle [Formula: see text] on-kinetics on the ATP usage activity was simulated for both types of the ESA intensity-ATP usage activity dependence...

PURPOSE: Mitochondrial glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (mGPDH) is the key enzyme connecting oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and glycolysis as well as a target of the antidiabetic drug metformin (MF) in the liver. There are no data on the expression and role of mGPDH as a metformin target in cancer. In this study, we evaluated mGPDH as a potential target of metformin in thyroid cancer and investigated its contribution in thyroid cancer metabolism. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We analyzed mGPDH expression in 253 thyroid cancer and normal tissues by immunostaining and examined its expression and localization in thyroid cancer-derived cell lines (FTC133, BCPAP) by confocal microscopy...

Recently we have shown that mast cell mitochondrial STAT3 could serve as a new target for the regulation of the allergic response as it plays an essential role in immunologically-mediated degranulation of mast cells. In the present work, we explored how two recently developed mitochondrial STAT3 inhibitors (Mitocur-1 and Mitocur-3) modulate the allergic response. Here we show that treatment of rodent and human cultured mast cells with low concentrations of mitochondrial STAT3 inhibitors had no effect on STAT3 target gene expression...

Oxidative functions of adipose tissue macrophages control the polarization of M1-like and M2-like phenotypes, but whether reduced macrophage oxidative function causes systemic insulin resistance in vivo is not clear. Here, we show that mice with reduced mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OxPhos) due to myeloid-specific deletion of CR6-interacting factor 1 (Crif1), an essential mitoribosomal factor involved in biogenesis of OxPhos subunits, have M1-like polarization of macrophages and systemic insulin resistance with adipose inflammation...
