Roles of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in damage to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) following ultraviolet (UV)-irradiation were investigated in the human hepatoma cell line SK-HEP-1. We altered the intracellular status of ROS by the overexpression of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and/or catalase. Using HPLC, we analyzed 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo), known as a marker of damage to DNA molecules. UV-irradiation resulted in the accumulation of 8-oxodGuo in these cells. The overexpression of MnSOD enhanced the accumulation of 8-oxodGuo by UV. The co-overexpression of catalase inhibited the accumulation of 8-oxodGuo by UV in MnSOD-transfectants. The overexpression of MnSOD reduced the colony forming capacity in SK-HEP-1 cells and the co-overexpression of catalase with MnSOD stimulated the capacity compared to control. UV-irradiation inhibited the colony forming capacity in these cells; no difference was observed among the capacities of control, MnSOD- and catalase-transfectants. However, the overexpression of MnSOD/catalase significantly rescued the reduction of colony forming capacity by UV-irradiation. Our results suggest that the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide plays a key role in the oxidative damage to mtDNA of UV-irradiated cells, and also that the overexpression of both MnSOD and catalase reduces the mtDNA damage and blocks the growth inhibition by UV. Our results also indicate that the increased activity of MnSOD may lead to a toxic effect on mtDNA by UV-irradiation.
