Aims: Defects in the activity of enzyme complexes of the mitochondrial respiratory chain are thought to be responsible for several disorders including renal impairment. Gene mutations which result in complex I deficiency are the most common OXPHOS disorders in humans. To determine if an abnormality in mitochondrial complex I per se is associated with development of renal disease, mice with a knockdown of the complex I gene, Ndufs6 were studied. Results: Ndufs6 mice had a partial renal cortical complex I deficiency; Ndufs6gt/gt, 32% activity and Ndufs6gt/+, 83% activity compared to WT mice. Both Ndufs6gt/+ and Ndufs6gt/gt mice exhibited hallmarks of renal disease including albuminuria, urinary excretion of kidney injury molecule-1 (Kim-1), renal fibrosis and changes in glomerular volume, with decreased capacity to generate mitochondrial ATP and superoxide from substrates oxidised via complex I. However, more advanced renal defects in Ndufs6gt/gt mice were observed in the context of a disruption in the inner mitochondrial electrochemical potential, 3-nitrotyrosine-modified mitochondrial proteins, increased urinary excretion of 15-isoprostane F2t and upregulation of antioxidant defence. Juvenile Ndufs6gt/gt mice also exhibited signs of early renal impairment with increased urinary Kim-1 excretion and elevated circulating cystatin C. Innovation: We have identified renal impairment in a mouse model of partial complex I deficiency, suggesting that even modest deficits in mitochondrial respiratory chain function may act as risk factors for chronic kidney disease. Conclusion: These studies identify for the first time that complex I deficiency as the result of interruption of Ndufs6 is an independent cause of renal impairment.
