Key mitochondrial energy-providing reactions are carried out by the oxidative phosphorylation system (OXPHOS), involving the electron transfer and phosphorylation systems including F1Fo-ATP synthase. The most common OXPHOS disorder in humans is associated with Complex I deficiency, leading to fatal encephalomyopathies of early childhood- Leigh-like syndrome [1]. The growth factor adaptor protein p66Shc has a substantial impact on mitochondrial metabolism through regulation of cellular responses to oxidative stress. A low level of p66Shc protein or its complete ablation protects against numerous age-related disorders and may partially prevent pathologies caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). On the other hand, a high level of p66Shc phosphorylation is correlated with increased intracellular ROS production [2,3].

Organs from NDUFS4-/- mice with Complex I deficiency were used as a model of self-propelling intracellular oxidative stress. The status of the antioxidant defense system, oxidative stress markers and the p66Shc-Ser36 phosphorylation pathway were measured in these tissues. Mass spectrometry analysis was also performed for selected NDUFS4-/- mouse tissues.

In our study, mice with defective Complex I were characterized by attenuated intracellular oxidative stress, connected with increased p66Shc phosphorylation. Mass spectrometry revealed aberrations in the level of Complex I proteins and oxidative stress- related proteins, as well as other proteins involved in metabolic processes.
