NAD+ decline and redox imbalance have been reported in different cardiometabolic diseases. We have earlier shown that cardiomyocyte-specific deletion of Ndufs4 (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase subunit S4), a protein critical for Complex I assembly in the mitochondrial electron transport system, induces NAD+ redox imbalance and exacerbates diabetic cardiomyopathy in mice. We have also reported reduction of Complex I-driven State 3 respiration in permeabilized cardiac fibers from these mice. However, it is not known whether cardiac-specific overexpression of Nampt (nicotinamide phosphoribosyltranferase), the rate-limiting enzyme of NAD+ biosynthesis through salvage pathway, can rescue the decline of Complex I-driven respiration in these Ndufs4-cKO hearts.

Hearts were harvested from Ndufs4-flox/flox (Control) and cardiac-specific Ndufs4-knockout (cKO) mice and mitochondria were isolated. Oroboros O2k fluorespirometer was used to measure mitochondrial oxygen consumption rate. To each chamber, 50 Β΅g mitochondria were loaded, followed by addition of pyruvate, malate and ADP to study Complex I-driven respiration, and succinate and ADP to measure Complex II-driven respiration, respectively. Mitochondria from the cKO showed 39.7Β±2.26% decline in Complex I-driven State 3 respiration, whereas no significant change was observed in Complex II-driven respiration. We are currently using the O2k to compare the mitochondrial respiration in Ndufs4-cKO mouse hearts with and without cardiac-specific Nampt overexpression.
