The TSC1 gene product hamartin interacts with NADE



The TSC1 gene product hamartin interacts with NADE



Molecular and Cellular Neurosciences 35(1): 100-108



Hamartomatous brain lesions are a hallmark of brain pathology of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). To elucidate the mechanism of tumor development in the brain of TSC, we identified NADE (p75NTR-associated cell death executor) as an interactor for TSC1 gene product hamartin using a yeast two-hybrid system. In a pull-down assay, endogenous NADE was purified with the immobilized coiled-coil domain (CCD) of hamartin from the PC12h cell lysate. Immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation confirmed the interaction of hamartin and NADE in cultured neurons and mouse brain lysate. Hamartin constitutively associated with NADE to prevent its proteasomal degradation. Suppression of hamartin with TSC1 small interfering RNA (siRNA) caused reduction of NADE and failed to lead to NGF-induced apoptosis in PC12h cells. These results indicate that hamartin binds to NADE to regulate neuronal cell function and loss of this association is likely to contribute to the brain pathology in TSC.
