In vitro study of interaction of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 10 and cyclophilin D and its potential implications for Alzheimer's disease

In early stages of Alzheimer's disease (AD), amyloid-β (Aβ) accumulates in neuronal mitochondria where it interacts with a number of biomolecules including 17beta-hydroxysteroide dehydrogenase 10 (17β-HSD10) and cyclophilin D (cypD). It has been hypothesized that 17β-HSD10 interacts with cypD preventing it from opening mitochondrial permeability transition pores and that its regulation during AD may be affected by the accumulation of Aβ. In this work, we demonstrate for the first time that 17β-HSD10 and cypD form a stable complex in vitro. Furthermore, we show that factors, such as pH, ionic environment and the presence of Aβ, affect the ability of 17β-HSD10 to bind cypD. We demonstrate that K+ and Mg2+ ions present at low levels may facilitate this binding. We also show that different fragments of Aβ (Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42) affect the interaction between 17β-HSD10 and cypD differently and that Aβ1-42 (in contrast to Aβ1-40) is capable of simultaneously binding both 17β-HSD10 and cypD in a tri-complex.

Trending Feeds


Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Signaling in Adult Neurogenesis

Neural stem cells play a critical role in the production of neuronal cells in neurogenesis is of great importance. Of interest is the role signalling mechanisms in adult neurogenesis. Discover the latest research on signalling in adult neurogenesis.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
