Biochemical micromethods were used for the investigation of changes in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation associated with cytochrome c oxidase deficiency in brain cortex from Mo(vbr) (mottled viable brindled) mice, an animal model of Menkes' copper deficiency syndrome. Enzymatic analysis of cortex homogenates from Mo(vbr) mice showed an approximately twofold decrease in cytochrome c oxidase and a 1.4-fold decrease in NADH:cytochrome c reductase activities as compared with controls.
