Article

The transcriptional regulator Methyl-CpG-binding protein 2 (MeCP2) is an intrinsically disordered protein, mutations in which, are implicated in the onset of Rett Syndrome, a severe and debilitating neurodevelopmental disorder. Delivery of this protein fused to the cell-penetrating peptide TAT could allow for the intracellular replenishment of func...

Rett syndrome (RTT) is a neurodevelopmental disorder caused by pathogenic variants leading to functional impairment of the MeCP2 protein. Here, we used purified recombinant MeCP2e1 and MeCP2e2 protein variants fused to a TAT protein transduction domain (PTD) to evaluate their transduction ability into RTT patient-derived fibroblasts and the ability...

Methyl-CpG-binding protein 2 (MeCP2) is a multifunctional chromosomal protein that plays a key role in the central nervous system. Its levels need to be tightly regulated, as both deficiency and excess of the protein can lead to severe neuronal dysfunction. Loss-of-function mutations affecting MeCP2 are the primary cause of Rett syndrome (RTT), a s...

Article
Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is a neurodegenerative disease caused by reduced expression of the protein frataxin. Frataxin is thought to play a role in iron-sulfur cluster biogenesis and heme synthesis. In this study, we used erythroid progenitor stem cells obtained from FRDA patients and healthy donors to investigate the putative role, if any, of fr...
Article
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a severe autosomal recessive disorder affecting one in every 10,000 live births. The disease is characterized by loss of alpha-motor neurons in the spinal cord that leads to progressive atrophy and weakness of limb and trunk muscles. This neuromuscular disorder results from deletions and/or mutations within the surv...

Weill-Marchesani syndrome is a rare disorder of the connective tissue. Functional variants in ADAMTS10 are associated with Weill-Marchesani syndrome-1. We identified a homozygous missense mutation, c.41T>A, of the ADAMTS10 gene in a 19-year-old female with typical symptoms of WMS1: proportionate short stature, brachydactyly, joint stiffness, and mi...
Article
Friedreich ataxia is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the frataxin gene, leading to reduced levels of the mitochondrial protein frataxin. Assays to quantitatively measure frataxin in peripheral blood have been established. To determine the validity of frataxin as a biomarker for clinical trials, we assessed frataxin in clinica...
Article
Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) is an autosomal recessive inherited neurodegenerative disorder leading to reduced expression of the mitochondrial protein frataxin. Previous studies showed frataxin upregulation in FRDA following treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (rhuEPO). Dose-response interactions between frataxin and rhuEPO have not been st...

Carbamoylation is the non-enzymatic reaction of cyanate with amino-, hydroxy- or thiol groups. In vivo, amino group modification (N-carbamoylation) resulting in altered function of proteins/amino acids has been observed in patients suffering from uraemia due to urea-derived cyanate. Uraemia has been linked to impaired antioxidant defense. As thiol-...

In vitro and in vivo studies have provided evidence for neuroprotective properties of Erythropoietin in neurodegenerative disorders. Although the magnitude of effect is still controversial, very recent findings point to neuronal protection in the central nervous system by Erythropoietins. Erythropoietin is a powerful growth factor which enhances ce...
Article
Concerns exist that administration of intravenous (i. v.) iron preparations is associated with oxidative stress. Therefore iron sucrose (CAS 8047-67-4), ferric gluconate (CAS 34098-81-1) and iron dextran (CAS 9004-66-4) were assessed for redox-active iron by a dichlorofluorescein assay and for intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation...
Article
Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is a neurodegenerative disorder caused by decreased expression of the mitochondrial protein frataxin. Recently we showed in a clinical pilot study in Friedreich's ataxia patients that recombinant human erythropoietin (rhuEPO) significantly increases frataxin-expression. In this in vitro study, we investigated the role of...
Article
Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disease affecting 1 in 50,000 people and is caused by a GAA-trinucleotide expansion in the frataxin gene located on chromosome locus 9q13 which results in a markedly reduced expression of frataxin, a small mitochondrial protein. The exact function of frataxin is still unknown an...

Highly reactive alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes like 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (4-HNE), generated from oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, can bind to proteins, polynucleotides and exert cytotoxicity. 4-HNE is known to react readily with thiol and amino groups on free or bound amino acids. Recently, hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) has been identified as...
Article
In a "proof-of-concept" study, we demonstrated that recombinant human erythropoietin (rhuEPO) increases frataxin levels in Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) patients. We now report a 6-month open-label clinical pilot study of safety and efficacy of rhuEPO treatment in FRDA. Eight adult FRDA patients received 2.000 IU rhuEPO thrice a week subcutaneously. C...
