Purpose: Diabetes is a metabolic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin (Type I diabetes) or when the body does not effectively use the insulin (Type II diabetes). One of the most common complication of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy(DR). DR is a time-dependent disease and induces blindness. DR produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) and superoxide is mainly made from mitochondria electron chain and it is harmful to eyes. Methods: In this study, eyes were enucleated from glucose-immersed zebrafish which is good model to generate diabetes and then mitochondria were isolated to evaluate activities of mitochondria electron transfer complex. Activity of mitochondrial electron transfer complex in eyes was measured by UV-vis spectrometer.
Results: After the glucose immersion, the amount of mitochondria in eyes was increased compared to non-glucose-immersed zebrafish. Mitochondrial complex I, II, III, and IV activities of glucose-immersed zebrafish was improved compared to non-glucose-immersed zebrafish.
Conclusions: These results indicated that 3 days or 7 days glucose immersion on zebrafish to induce the early stage of diabetes on zebrafish. Zebrafish might contribute to metabolic compensatory mechanisms in eyes to restore their mitochondrial homeostasis on the early stage of diabetes.
