Background: ADP/ATP translocase 1 (ANT1) is involved in the exchange of cytosolic ADP and mitochondrial ATP, and its defection plays an important role in mitochondrial pathogenesis. To reveal an etiological implication of ANT1 for Parkinson's disease (PD), a neurodegenerative disorder, a mouse model treated with 1-Methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine and neuroblasma cell model induced by 1-methyl-4-pehny1-pyridine were utilized in this study. Results: The tissue-specific abundance in ANT1

Down-regulated soluble ANT1 was found to be correlated with PD, and ANT1 was associated with PD pathogenesis via forming protein aggregates with α-synuclein. This finding was confirmed at cellular level using neuroblasma cell models. Protein interaction assay, coupled with the analysis of LC-MS/MS, silver-stained SDS-PAGE and Western blot against anti-ANT1 antibody respectively, illustrated the interaction of ANT1 with α-synuclein using the expressed α-synuclein as a bite. Additionally, a significant increasing ROSs was detected in PD-like cells. Conclusions: his study indicated that ANT1 was a potentially causative factor of PD, and led to neuropathogenic injury via promoting the formation of protein aggregates with α-synuclein. This investigation potentially promotes an innovative understanding of ANT1 on the etiology of PD and provides valuable information on developing potential drug targets in PD treatment or reliable biomarkers in PD prognostication.
