Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate effect of ubiquinone on MCL1 gene expression in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal cells following transient global ischemia/reperfusion in male Wistar rat.
Materials and methods: In this study, we randomly selected 24 Wistar rats under 250-300 g weights that divided into 4 groups including group of observance (maintenance in the laboratory standard condition), ischemia to close the carotid artery and ischemia for 20 minutes, experiment to obtain CoQ10 dose and again obtain CoQ10 coenzyme, and group of control to obtain CoQ10 coenzyme solvent and ischemia again to obtain CoQ10 coenzyme solvent. CoQ10 coenzyme was injected via intraperitoneal (IP) method. The separated hippocampus from the brain was studied by expressing the changes of MCL1 gene.
Results: The expression of MCL1 anti-apoptic gene in observance group has been decreased compared to experiment group. There were not significant differences in the expression of MCL1 gene in the ischemia group towards control group. The expression of MCL1 gene have no significant differences in the coenzyme of control group towards observance group.
Conclusion: According to the results, CoQ10 can create the protective effects in the severity of lesions of hippocampus after ischemia and also increases the rate of the expression gene.
Keywords: CoQ10, Cerebral ischemia, Oxidative stress, Free radicals, Apoptosis, Hippocampus, Real time PCR.
