The mechanisms underlining the cell adaptive and/or activating oxidative stress called low level light (LLLT) or photobiomodulation therapies (PBMT) still remain unclear for near-infrared (NIR) spectrum range (750-3000 nm) especially for 1265-1270 nm range (highest absorption by molecular oxygen). It is most probably that the mitochondrium may also appear to be the main target for these wavelengths. It is known that mitochondria can generate ROS under visible and 800-1060nm spectrum ranges which in turn control voltage-dependent anion channels (VDAC). Here we investigated cellular damage caused by low doses of 1265-70 nm laser radiation regarding to VDAC activity in the cancer cell culture exposed to low-level laser irradiation at 1265 nm. We observed that the laser radiation at 1265 nm can induce the oxidative stress, enhance apoptosis and disturb mitochondrial functioning at the energy density of 9.54 J/cm2. In addition, inhibition of VDAC enhances the observed effects. It has been shown that the laser irradiation at 1265 nm damages mitochondrial DNA but does not affect the nuclear DNA. The performed experiments bring us to the conclusion that the laser irradiation at 1265 nm can affect cells through mitochondrial damage and the inhibition of VDAC enhances effects of PBMT.
