Mitochondrial dysfunction mediated by quinone oxidation products of dopamine: Implications in dopamine cytotoxicity and pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease.


The study has demonstrated that dopamine induces membrane depolarization and a loss of phosphorylation capacity in dose-dependent manner in isolated rat brain mitochondria during extended in vitro incubation and the phenomena are not prevented by oxyradical scavengers or metal chelators. Dopamine effects on brain mitochondria are, however, markedly… (More)
