Abstract

We found that overexpression of tail interacting protein of 47kDa (TIP47), but not its truncated form (t-TIP47) protected NIH3T3 cells from hydrogen-peroxide-induced cell death, prevented the hydrogen-peroxide-induced mitochondrial depolarization determined by 5,5',6,6'-tetrachloro-1,1',3,3'-tetraethyl-benzimidazolylcarbocyanine iodide (JC1), while suppression of TIP47 in HeLa cells facilitated oxidative-stress-induced cell death. TIP47 was located to the cytoplasm of untreated cells, but some was associated to mitochondria in oxidative stress. Recombinant TIP47, but not t-TIP47 increased the mitochondrial membrane potential (Δψ), and partially prevented Ca2+ induced depolarization. It is assumed that TIP47 can bind to mitochondria in oxidative stress, and inhibit mitochondria mediated cell death by protecting mitochondrial membrane integrity. © 2010 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
