Abstract
Alzheimer?s disease (AD) is associated to depressed brain energy supply and impaired cortical and hippocampal synaptic function. Previous reports showed no consistent time-course bioenergetic deficiencies of cortical and hippocampal presynaptic nerve terminals (synaptosomes) from commonly used mouse models with AD-like phenotypes (J20, Tg2576 and APP/PS) as compared to age-matched controls supporting the conclusion that the intrinsic bioenergetic capacities of presynaptic nerve terminals are maintained in these symptomatic AD mouse models. Intraneuronal accumulation of amyloid ? (A?) has been linked to mild cognitive impairment that precedes AD onset. This neuropathological trait was recently mimicked in a novel animal model of AD, the hemizygous (+/-) transgenic (Tg) rats (McGill-R-Thy1-APP). We performed in Tg(+/-) and control (WT) animals a time-course analysis of the bioenergetic profile of isolated hippocampal mitochondria and synaptosomes to evaluate mitochondrial functionality and its impact on behavior. A clear bioenergetic dysfunction was observed in isolated hippocampal mitochondrias or synaptosomes in 6 months-old Tg(+/-) rats which correlates to higher levels of anxiety and impaired working and spatial reference memories as compared to their WT littermates. This phenotype was partially reverted when Tg(+/-) rats were fed a nutritionally complete diet with Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) added at 2 mg/Kg from weaning to 6 months-old. Collectively, these data demonstrate that the intrinsic bioenergetic capacities of presynaptic nerve terminals are not conserved in these AD rats lacking extracellular A? accumulation and that PQQ impacts a number of parameters related to normal mitochondrial function and cognition.
