Abstract: The relevance of porphyrins as therapeutic drugs targeted to mitochondria has been widely recognized. In this work, we studied the action of meso-tetrakis porphyrins (TMPyP) on respiring rat liver mitochondria. Mn(III)TMPyP exerted a protective effect against lipid peroxidation induced by Fe(II) or the azo initiator 4,4'-azobis(4-cyanopentanoic acid) (ABCPA), which partition in the hydrophobic phospholipid moiety, and 2,2'-azobis(2-amidinepropane)dihydrochloride (ABAP), which partitions in the aqueous phase, In contrast, Fe(III)TMPyP itself induced an intense lipid peroxidation, accompanied by mitochondrial permeability transition. Both mesoporphyrins studied promoted a release of mitochondrial state-4 respiration, in the concentration range of 1.0-20 muM. Based on the relative effects of Mn(III)TMPyP against ABAP and ABCPA-induced lipid peroxidation, we believe that meso-tetrakis porphyrins must concentrate preferably at membrane-water interfaces.
