|Abstract:||Aims Cyclosporine A (CsA) has represented a fundamental therapeutic weapon in immunosupression for the past three decades. However, its clinical use is not devoid of side effects, among which hypertension and vascular injury represent a major drawback. Endothelial cells are able to generate reactive oxygen and nitrogen species upon exposure to CsA, including formation of peroxynitrite. This may result in endothelial cell toxicity and increased tyrosine nitration. We have now studied the subcellular origin of superoxide formation in endothelial cells treated with CsA and the biochemical consequences for the function of mitochondrial enzymes.
Methods and results By using electron spin resonance and endothelial cells lacking functional mitochondria, we showed that superoxide anion is generated in mitochondria. This was associated with an effect of CsA on bioenergetic parameters: increased mitochondrial membrane potential and inhibition of cellular respiration. In addition, CsA inhibited the activity of the mitochondrial enzymes aconitase and manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD). The use of murine lung endothelial cells deficient in endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and NOS/peroxynitrite inhibitors allowed us to establish that the presence of eNOS and concomitant NO synthesis and peroxynitrite formation were essential for CsA induced nitration and inhibition of MnSOD activity. As the latter has been shown to become inactivated by nitration, we sought to identify this modification by mass spectrometry analysis. We found that CsA induced specific MnSOD tyrosine 34 nitration both in the recombinant protein and in endothelial cells overexpressing MnSOD.|
Conclusion We propose that CsA induced endothelial damage may be related to increased mitochondrial superoxide formation and subsequent peroxynitrite-dependent nitroxidative damage, specifically targeting MnSOD. The inactivation of this key antioxidant enzyme by tyrosine nitration represents a pathophysiological cellular mechanism contributing to self-perpetuation and amplification of CsA-related vascular toxicity
