Accumulation of mtDNA mutations along with increased levels of ROS (that enhance mutation on the mitochondrial genome) have been described as promoting factors of tumorigenesis [271-274]; in addition, many mtDNA mutations that associate with tumorigenesis were shown to inhibit OXPHOS [275, 276].
Therefore, we have examined the ratios of cellular PK activities as a strongly expressed marker of glycolysis to the maximum OXPHOS activity measured as respiration rate at saturating ADP in conditions of function of different complexes of the respiratory chain (Figure 2).
At variance from the previous findings, in mitochondria energized with succinate (+rotenone) a significant decrease in all respiratory parameters (STATES 2 and 4, OXPHOS, and ETS capacities) was found only in CHD-DM group, suggesting a more significant impairment of mitochondrial function in the presence of diabetes (Figure 2).

Through a microarray differential expression analysis, including all sequences mapping inside STR1, we discovered the gene encoding the mitochondrial protein Ndufc2 (a subunit of the OXPHOS complex I, encoded by nuclear DNA) as a sequence significantly downregulated by high salt diet only in the brain of SHRSP as compared to the SHRSR [13].
For calculation of the reference interval, we included results from patient samples for which biochemical respiratory chain analysis showed no evidence for the OXPHOS defect (n = 115).

Human mtDNA is circular and double-stranded, with 16 569 base pairs encoding only 13 polypeptides that are absolutely crucial for the OXPHOS complexes (Figure 1), in addition to 22 transfer RNAs and 2 ribosomal RNAs.
2,3) Posee dos membranas, una externa lisa y otra interna plegada, formando crestas, donde estan ubicados los complejos enzimaticos I al IV (ETC) y el complejo V, donde se lleva a cabo la OXPHOS, complejos que son codificados por el genoma nuclear (nDNA) y el DNA de la mitocondria (mtDNA); (2) este ultimo, igual que las demas moleculas necesarias para la biosintesis mitocondrial, esta contenido por la matriz.
Mutations in mitochondrial genes encoding mitochondrial proteins or in the nuclear genes encoding mitochondrial proteins may lead to dysfuction of the OXPHOS system, apoptosis and oxidative stress control leading to a variety of multi-system disorders with pleiotropic effects.
The OXPHOS system is the final biochemical pathway involved in producing the principal fuel of the cell-adenosine triphosphate (ATP) (Smeitink, van den Heuvel, & DiMauro, 2001).
