Dysfunction of mitochondria contributes to the pathogenesis of many diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, metabolic disorders such as Diabetes mellitus, and hearing loss caused by aging, noise or clinical drugs. Pharmacological approaches targeting mitochondria may be beneficial for patients with these diseases. These include increasing mitochondrial biogenesis, reactive oxygen species scavenging, targeting mitochondrial dynamics, the membrane fluidity and plasticity. However, the pattern of mitochondrial dysfunction can be complicated. Drug screening using in vivo models for these diseases is indispensable to discover drugs that can ameliorate diseases without detectable toxicity. In this study, we used zebrafish as an in vivo model of drug-induced hearing loss and performed screening of mitochondria-targeted drugs. We were able to identify compounds that protected auditory hair cells against drug-induced damage by modulating mitochondrial functions. These results support zebrafish’s potential for in vivo efficacy and toxicity screening of mitochondria-targeted drugs.
