Abstract 1. Both NADH and NADPH supported the oxidation of adrenaline to adrenochrome in bovine heart submitochondrial particles. The reaction was completely inhibited in the presence of superoxide dismutase, suggesting that superoxide anions (O(2) (-)) are responsible for the oxidation. The optimal pH of the reaction with NADPH was at pH7.5, whereas that with NADH was at pH9.0. The reaction was inhibited by treatment of the preparation with p-hydroxymercuribenzoate and stimulated by treatment with rotenone. Antimycin A and cyanide stimulated the reaction to the same extent as rotenone. The NADPH-dependent reaction was inhibited by inorganic salts at high concentrations, whereas the NADH-dependent reaction was stimulated. 2. Production of O(2) (-) by NADH-ubiquinone reductase preparation (Complex I) with NADH or NADPH as an electron donor was assayed by measuring the formation of adrenochrome or the reduction of acetylated cytochrome c which does not react with the respiratory-chain components. p-Hydroxymercuribenzoate inhibited the reaction and rotenone stimulated the reaction. The effects of pH and inorganic salts at high concentrations on the NADH- and NADPH-dependent reactions of Complex I were essentially similar to those on the reactions of submitochondrial particles. 3. These findings suggest that a region between a mercurialsensitive site and the rotenone-sensitive site of the respiratory-chain NADH dehydrogenase is largely responsible for the NADH- and NADPH-dependent O(2) (-) production by the mitochondrial inner membranes.
