Bottom Line: These animals showed a persistent increase in reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS, respectively) production.Mitochondrial matrix aconitase, a ROS sensitive enzyme, was markedly inhibited in the diabetic rat tissues.Increased expression of oxidative stress marker proteins Hsp-70 and HO-1 was also observed along with increased expression of nitric oxide synthase.

ABSTRACT
We have previously shown a tissue-specific increase in oxidative stress in the early stages of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. In this study, we investigated oxidative stress-related long-term complications and mitochondrial dysfunctions in the different tissues of STZ-induced diabetic rats (>15 mM blood glucose for 8 weeks). These animals showed a persistent increase in reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS, respectively) production. Oxidative protein carbonylation was also increased with the maximum effect observed in the pancreas of diabetic rats. The activities of mitochondrial respiratory enzymes ubiquinol: cytochrome c oxidoreductase (Complex III) and cytochrome c oxidase (Complex IV) were significantly decreased while that of NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (Complex I) and succinate:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (Complex II) were moderately increased in diabetic rats, which was confirmed by the increased expression of the 70 kDa Complex II sub-unit. Mitochondrial matrix aconitase, a ROS sensitive enzyme, was markedly inhibited in the diabetic rat tissues. Increased expression of oxidative stress marker proteins Hsp-70 and HO-1 was also observed along with increased expression of nitric oxide synthase. These results suggest that mitochondrial respiratory complexes may play a critical role in ROS/RNS homeostasis and oxidative stress related changes in type 1 diabetes and may have implications in the etiology of diabetes and its complications.

Reactive nitrogen species (RNS) production in STZ-induced diabetes. Mitochondrial (a), microsomal (b) and cytosolic (c) proteins (100 μg) from pancreas (P), liver (L), kidney (K) and brain (B) of control and diabetic rats were analyzed for total NO level by Griess Reagent using a kit from Calbiochem as described in the Materials and Methods. The values are mean ± S.E.M. for three determinations. * indicate significant difference (P < 0.05) from control animals. (□) Control; (▪) Diabetic.

Mentions: A differential increase in NO production was also seen in tissues from diabetic rats (Figure 2). Mitochondria (Figure 2a), microsomes (Figure 2b) and cytosol (Figure 2c) from pancreas, liver and kidney showed a significant increase (22–33%; P < 0.05) in NO production while these fractions from the brain showed a marginal increase (7–12%, P > 0.05).
