Abstract

We investigated the effects of cinnarizine and flunarizine on mitochondrial permeability transition, ATP synthesis, membrane potential and NAD(P)H oxidation. Both drugs were effective in inhibiting the mitochondrial permeability transition induced either by Ca2+ alone or in the presence of tert-butylhydroperoxide. This protective effect occurred at low concentrations (< 50 mu M) of these drugs and was accompanied bythe inhibition of NAD(P)H oxidation and the restoration of the mitochondrial membrane potential decreased by a high concentration of Ca2+ (25 mu M). However, at higher concentrations (> 50 mu M) Of cinnarizineand flunarizine and in the absence of both tert-butylhydroperoxide and Ca2+, their effects on the mitochondria were reversed as follows: mitochondrial permeability transition was generated, mitochondrial NAD(P)H was oxidized and membrane potential collapsed. These deleterious effects were not antagonized by cyclosporine A, the most potent inhibitor of the mitochondrial permeability transition, but by 2,6-di-rert-butyl-4-methylphenol, a known antioxidant agent. This mitochondrial effect was neither accompanied by an increase in malondialdehyde productionnor by an increase in H2O2 generation, which attested that the effectof both drugs was not due to an increase in reactive oxygen species production. The dual effects of both cinnarizine and flunarizine on mitochondrial functions is discussed with regard to both the protective effect afforded by these drugs against ischemia-reperfusion injury and their side effect observed in some therapeutic situations where an overdosage seems likely.
