Figure 3. Mitochondrial respiratory chain (MRC) enzymatic activities in control and PRKN-PD fibroblasts. Enzymatic activities of the complexes I (A), II+III (B) and CIV (C) of the MRC. No significant differences were obtained between groups. Exposure to galactose significantly reduced CI-enzymatic activity of control fibroblasts and significantly decreased CIV enzymatic activity of PRKN-PD fibroblasts when compared to glucose. The results were expressed as means and standard error of the mean (SEM). *= p<0.05. CTL= Control fibroblasts. GAL= 10 mM galactose medium. GLC= 25 mM glucose medium. NS= not significant. PRKN-PD= Parkin-associated PD fibroblasts. Enzymatic activity values were normalized by citrate synthase activity as a marker of mitochondrial content.
