Abstract Hyperglycemia augments formation of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) with associated mitochondrial damage and increased risk of insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes. We examined whether quercetin could reverse chronic high glucose-induced oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. Following long-term high glucose treatment, complex I activity was significantly decreased in isolated mitochondria from HepG2 cells. Quercetin dose-dependently recovered complex I activity and lowered cellular ROS generation under both high and normal glucose conditions. Respirometry studies showed that quercetin could counteract the detrimental increase in i...
