- Sodium fluoride exhibited toxic effect on isolated rat liver mitochondria.
- N-Acetylcysteine protected against the fluoride toxicity on mitochondria.
- Interfering of fluoride with the mitochondrial functionality can be the result of oxidative stress and subsequent collapse of mitochondrial membrane potential (??m).
Fluoride is abundant in the environment and exists mostly in combination with other elements as fluoride compounds. Several studies showed that exposing to irregular level of fluoride could impair the normal function of mitochondria that have major contribution for producing of reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, information about the exact mechanism behind the fluoride-induced mitochondrial damage has not been fully understood. In the present study, isolated rat liver mitochondria were exposed to different concentrations of sodium fluoride (NaF) for 30?minutes and their functionality was assessed at the presence of different concentrations of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and IC50 concentration of NaF. Mitochondrial dehydrogenase activity, glutathione (GSH) content, lipid peroxidation, ROS production and mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) assay in the presence of these two substances were evaluated. Our findings demonstrated that, NaF reduced the GSH content of mitochondria, increased ROS and lipid peroxidation which led to a decrease in the dehydrogenase activity (complex II) of mitochondria. NAC considerably inhibited those noxious effects of NaF on mitochondria and prevented NaF toxicity on mitochondria isolated from rat liver.

[The influence of methionine and vitamin E on oxidative stress in rats’ liver exposed to sodium fluoride]
BACKGROUND: Fluorine influences many processes occurring in the organism. Controversies over the evaluation of the biological effects of this substance are due to a small difference between tolerable and toxic fluorine doses. One of the main mechanisms of the fluorine toxic action is its ability to induce oxidative stress via
Ameliorative effect of tamarind leaf on fluoride-induced metabolic alterations
OBJECTIVES: Fluoride is a serious health hazard across several nations, and chronic intake of fluoride deranges the carbohydrate, lipid and antioxidant metabolism in general. As there are limited remedial measures to prevent fluorosis, we investigated the role of tamarind leaf as a food supplement in restoration of carbohydrate, lipid and
Effect of fluorine containing compounds on the activity of glycolytic enzymes in rat hepatocytes.
Inhibition of three glycolytic enzymes by NaF and Na2PO3F? in isolated rat hepatocytes has been demonstrated. The data indicate that incubation of hepatocytes with NaF or MFP and subsequent removal of NaF and MFP results in a significant inhibition of enolase (E.C. 188.8.131.52), phosphoglucomutase (E.C. 184.108.40.206.), and pyruvate kinase (E.C.
Changes in adrenal function as a possible mechanism for elevation of serum glucose by a single large dose of fluoride.
Serum glucose was elevated immediately after ip administration of a single large dose of fluoride (NaF 35 mg/kg) to rats. Moreover, elevation of serum glucose following ip administration of 35 mg/kg of fluoride to rats was suppressed by adrenalectomy, dibenamine, or propranolol, but not by thyroid-parathyroidectomy. The elevation of serum
Effects of melatonin and epiphyseal proteins on fluoride-induced adverse changes in antioxidant status of heart, liver, and kidney of rats
Several experimental and clinical reports indicated the oxidative stress-mediated adverse changes in vital organs of human and animal in fluoride (F) toxicity. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to evaluate the therapeutic effect of buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) epiphyseal (pineal) proteins (BEP) and melatonin (MEL) against F-induced oxidative stress in heart,
