When rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cells are cultured with 1 mM 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+), the number of viable cells decreases to one third in 4 days while the number increases ten-fold without MPP+. Oxygen consumption by mitochondria in the presence of malate is inhibited about 80% by the treatment of the cells with MPP+ for 4 days. Unexpectedly, succinate-dependent oxygen consumption is also inhibited to essentially the same extent as malate-dependent one. These results suggest that the impairment of the respiration mediated by succinate as well as malate is important as a mechanism of MPP(+)-induced cell death.
