    The respiratory chain of the procyclic stage of Trypanosoma brucei contains the standard complexes I through IV, as well as several alternative enzymes contributing to electron flow. In this work, we studied the function of an alternative NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase (NDH2). Depletion of target mRNA was achieved using RNA interference (RNAi). In the non-induced and RNAi-induced cell growth, membrane potential change, alteration in production of reactive oxygen species, overall respiration, enzymatic activities of complexes I, III and/or IV and distribution of NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase activities in glycerol gradient fractions were measured. Finally, respiration using different substrates was tested on digitonin-permeabilized cells. The induced RNAi cell line exhibited slower growth, decreased mitochondrial membrane potential and lower sensitivity of respiration to inhibitors. Mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase was the only enzymatic activity that has significantly changed in the interfered cells. This elevation as well as a decrease of respiration usingNADHwas confirmed on digitonin-permeabilized cells. The data presented here together with previously published findings on complex I led us to propose thatNDH2 is the majorNADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase responsible for cytosolic and not for mitochondrial NAD+ regeneration in the mitochondrion of procyclic T. brucei.
