Idebenone increases the basal respiration of some, but not all, LCLs. a Idebenone increased the basal OCR of GM11605 (ND1_3460G>A) cells in a dose dependent manner. b Idebenone increased the basal OCR of wildtype LCLs and LCLs harboring complex I mutations. No effect was seen in LCLs harboring the 8993T>G mutation. Average ± SEM from three independent experiments are shown. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, ****p < 0.0001, unpaired t-test, vehicle vs idebenone treated
