    • ...Melatonin has a direct role in mitochondrial homeostasis (Martín et al., 2000a, 2000b, 2002), which may explain the protective effect of this molecule in diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, aging, and sepsis, all of which have mitochondrial dysfunction as a primary or secondary cause of the condition (Acuña-Castroviejo et al., 2001; León et al., 2005; Jou et al., 2010; Rosales-Corral et al., 2010)...
    • ...In addition, melatonin interacts with lipid bilayers (Costa et al., 1997) and stabilizes mitochondrial inner membranes (García et al., 1999), an effect that may improve ETC activity (Acuña-Castroviejo et al., 2001)...

    Weiguo Donget al. Melatonin and mitochondria in aging

    • ...ML is found in high concentrations in mitochondria, which makes it play an important role in preventing aging and age-related diseases [10] . Besides its ability to protect from AD and PD,...

    Hongping Zhuet al. Transient species and its properties of melatonin

    • ...Several studies of mitochondrial effects revealed attenuation of mitochondrial lipid peroxidation, prevention of oxidative protein and DNA modifications, preservation of ultrastructure, resistance against toxins etc., findings which were widely in line with previous concepts of protection [10,113,142-146]...
    • ...More importantly, beyond these rather conventional findings, with few exceptions, melatonin was found to increase mitochondrial respiration and ATP synthesis, in conjunction with rises in complex I and IV activities [112,141-143,146,147,149,150]...

    • ...Whereas the pineal melatonin is related to the synchronization of endogenous rhythms (Kennaway and Wright 2002; Reiter 1980), extrapineal melatonin is related to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection of the cell (Acuna et al. 2011; Acuna-Castroviejo et al. 2001)...
    • ...Under physiological and pathological conditions, the ability of melatonin to maintain mitochondrial homeostasis has been reportedly showed (Acuna et al. 2011; Acuna-Castroviejo et al. 2001; Escames et al. 2007; Lopez et al. 2006a, b). Melatonin, but not other antioxidants including vitamins C and E, and N-acetylcysteine, was highly efficient to maintain...
