Abstract

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediate volatile anesthetic preconditioning. We tested the hypothesis that isoflurane (ISO) generates ROS from electron transport chain complexes I and III. Rabbits (n = 55) underwent 30 min coronary artery occlusion followed by 3 h reperfusion and received 0.9% saline, the complex I inhibitor diphenyleneiodonium (DPI; 1.5 mg/kg bolus followed by 1.5 mg/kg over 1 h), or the complex III inhibitor myxothiazol (MYX; 0.1 mg/kg bolus followed by 0.3 mg/kg over 1 h) in the absence and presence of 1.0 minimum alveolar concentration ISO. ISO was administered for 30 min and discontinued 15 min before coronary occlusion. Infarct size and ROS production (n = 32) were determined using triphenyltetrazolium staining and ethidium-DNA fluorescence, respectively. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) synthesis in mitochondria obtained from rabbit hearts (n = 24) subjected to drug interventions was measured by luciferin-luciferase luminometry. ISO significantly (P < 0.05) reduced infarct size (19% +/- 4%) as compared with control (39% +/- 4%). MYX (35% +/- 4%), but not DPI (24% +/- 2%), abolished this protection. ISO increased ethidium-DNA fluorescence (83 +/- 11 U) as compared with control (40 +/- 12 U). MYX (35 +/- 3 U), but not DPI (78 +/- 9 U), abolished ROS generation. DPI and MYX selectively reduced complex I- and complex III-mediated ATP synthesis, respectively. ROS generated from electron transport chain complex III mediate ISO-induced cardioprotection.
