oleifera protective effect, we measured the mitochondrial respiratory chain using Clark-type oxygen electrode and determined enzymatic activity of each complex by spectrophotometric methods.
This makes it possible to determine the efficiency of the individual complexes within the respiratory chain. Oligomycin blocks the [F.sub.0] subunit of the ATP synthase.
Importantly, the exposure to toxins like the pesticide rotenone and the herbicide paraquat reduced the activity of mitochondrial respiratory chain complex I and caused neurological defects similar to PD in humans and in animal models [37, 38].
The transcripts of some nuclear-encoded proteins from the mitochondrial respiratory chain of the shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei are known to be downregulated by hypoxia, including some proteins that compose the Frcatalytic domain of the ATP synthase (Martinez-Cruz et al.
Electron leakage in respiratory chain serves as the main source for generating reactive oxygen species and free radicals (superoxide anion radical [O.sub.2.sup.-*], hydrogen peroxide ([H.sub.2]O2) molecules produced by superoxide dismutase).
It codes 22 tRNA, 2 rRNA and 13 necessary subunits of the respiratory chain complexes (18, 19).
Metformin works by lowering blood glucose and also blocks the respiratory chain in the cells' mitochondria (See What You Should Know), while the drug syrosingopine inhibits degradation of sugars, interrupting processes that provide energy for the cells.
Several dehydrogenases transfer electrons to ETF, which transfer to ETF-QO and ultimately to coenzyme Q within the respiratory chain. MADD is classified into 3 groups based on clinical phenotype: (a) neonatal form with congenital anomalies; (b) neonatal form without anomalies; and (c) mild form characterized by ethylmalonicadipic aciduria.
