Defects in the mitochondrial respiratory system are often associated with mitochondrial dysfunction and increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production within the cell. The aim of our studies was to determine the differences in the mitochondrial bioenergetic parameters, ROS production and antioxidant enzymes status profiles between different types of mitochondrial defects.

Fibroblasts derived from patients with defined mitochondrial disorders (mutations in the genes of subunits Complex I, SCO2, SURF1, MTATP6, SERAC1, TAZZ and tRNALeu) have been studied. Bioenergetic parameters, ROS production and the level of individual antioxidant enzymes have been estimated. Finally, the multiparameter statistical analysis has been performed.

Anomalies in the bioenergetic parameters, modification of the antioxidant enzymes levels as well as enhancement of intracellular ROS confirmed the occurrence of oxidative stress in the fibroblasts. Principal component analysis showed that individual defects were grouped in separate clusters. This indicates that mitochondrial defects in the patients’ fibroblasts are characterized by a unique profile of important parameters of cellular bioenergetics and ROS homeostasis as well as that the different molecular background has a unique impact on the mitochondrial and antioxidant defense system dysfunctional pattern.

This approach may open new possibility to use the proposed set of mitochondrial parameters and comparative analysis in the studies essential for distinguishing the molecular background of mitochondrial defect.
