Mitochondrial (mt) DNA content, citrate synthase activity, transcript levels of some nuclear- and mitochondrial-coded genes (cytochrome c oxidase subunit IV [COX-IV], 16S rRNA, COX-I) and of some factors involved in the mitochondrial biogenesis signaling pathway (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma [PPARgamma] coactivator-1alpha [PGC-1alpha], mitochondrial transcription factor A mitochondrial [TFAM], mitochondrial transcription factor 2B [TFB2]), as well as the protein content of PGC-1alpha were determined.
The capacity of classic markers for mitochondrial density, ie, the capacity of citrate synthase (CS) and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), as well the capacity of cytochrome c oxidase (COX) and beta-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (HAD), was determined in homogenized muscle biopsy samples obtained from the vastus lateralis muscle of nonexercising healthy young (age 20 [+ or -] 2 yr) subjects (31 women, 7 men).
The audience was also treated to a fascinating presentation of the research of Harry Duckworth, FCIC, entitled 'An Enzyme in the Family; Growing Up Scientifically with Citrate Synthase.
In individuals with high citrate synthase activity (patients 673 and 7616), suggestive of a compensatory increase in mitochondrial metabolism, the reduction of SDH activity was observable histochemically.
