抄録: The mechanism and cause of motor neuronal cell death in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS),a devastating neurodegenerative disorder, are unknown; gain of function of oligomers andaggregation of misfolded proteins, including carboxyl-terminal fragments (CTFs) of TARRNA/DNA-binding protein 43 kDa (TDP-43), have been proposed as important causative fac-tors in the onset of ALS. We recently reported that a nuclear localization signal (NLS)-tagged25-kDa CTF of TDP-43 (TDP25) could dec rease the cell-death proportion compared with thatpromoted by TDP25 . Here, we show oligomeric states of NLS-TDP25 and its detailed local-ization prope rty using super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, FR ET, fluorescence recoveryafter photobleaching, and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy analysis. NLS-TDP25 effi-ciently formed a nucleolar cap structure via RNA binding in the presence of actinomycin D,but TDP25 did not. Although cytoplasmic inclusion bodies including TDP25 had a disorderedand immobile structure, NLS-TDP25 in the nucleolus was ordered and dynamic. In the diffusestate, TDP25 formed fewer oligomers and interacted with the molecular chaperone, HSP70;however, NLS-TDP25 formed oligomers. These results suggested that NLS-tagge d TDP25 canchange its structure to use ordered oligomeric but nontoxic state. Moreover, the structure ofordered oligomers as well as nuclear sequestration may be important in mediating cytotoxicityin ALS pathology.
