The OCR of cells was quantified employing a Seahorse XFe24 Analyzer (Agilent, MA, USA). Briefly, after treatment, the cells were washed, incubated with XF DMEM and D-glucose, and incubated in a non-CO2 incubator for 30 min at 37 °C. The sequential additions of oligomycin with a concentration of 1 μM (ATP synthase inhibitor), FCCP with a concentration of 2 μM (mitochondrial oxidative uncoupler), and rotenone with a concentration of 1 μM (mitochondrial electron transport chain complex I inhibitor) was done to assess the ATP production, maximal respiration, and spare respiratory capacity employing Seahorse Wave software ( The membrane potential was also determined using Cellular Membrane Potential Assay Kit (Fluorometric-Red) (ab176765) based on manufacturer's instructions provided.
