The aim of this study is the determination of the mechanisms of ROS formation in the brain by mitochondria isolated from the mice and rat total brain, different parts of the brain, spinal cord using different substrates for OXPHOS and for mono amino oxidases (MAO). In parallel, the investigation of the role of Ca2+ in OXPHOS regulation [1], the detections of ROS formation (Amplex Red HRP method) and potential of mitochondrial membrane (safranin) with and without 1 mM EGTA using different temperatures conditions showed unexpected results. The Ca2+ dependent increase of ROS formation by 10 mM glutamate and 2mM malate, opposite to 1-10 mM sn-Glycerol 3-phosphate, decrease membrane potential in neuronal mitochondria that suggests the presence of two ways of electron transfer by Q10 from both sides of the inner membrane [2]. Inhibitions of MAO specific for MAO-B pargyline, selegiline and non-specific (MAO-A, MAO-B) curcumin have no effect on ROS formation with most known OXPHOS substrates but have 50-70% decrease with succinate. These results can explain unspecific high level of ROS formation’s speed by succinate [3,4] without presence of any effects on membrane potential. The temperature’s dependence of ROS formation with and without EGTA showed an unexpected linear tendency.
