Curcumin Pretreatment Prevents Potassium Dichromate-Induced Hepatotoxicity, Oxidative Stress, Decreased Respiratory Complex I Activity, and Membrane Permeability Transition Pore Opening
Effect of curcumin on cytochrome c (cyt c) release induced by the treatment with K2Cr2O7. Liver mitochondria were incubated for 10 min with 50 μM Ca2+, in the presence or the absence of CsA. (a) Mitochondrial cyt c released and cyt c retained by Western blot analysis, (b) cyt c released/ANT ratio, and (c) cyt c retained/ANT ratio. Values are mean ± SEM, . versus control; versus K2Cr2O7 (24 h); versus K2Cr2O7 (48 h). ANT: adenine nucleotide translocator; CsA: cyclosporine A.
