Under physiological conditions, mitochondrial caspase 3 and 9 are nitrosylated and, therefore, inactive while in the presence of pro-apoptotic signals, caspases get activated through the denitrosylation of their reactive cysteines [ 52 ].

Regulation of nuclear export.

As mentioned above, physiological levels of ROS serve as very important signaling molecules [ 61, ]. In addition, the cysteine residues can also be modified in other ways, including S-nitrosylation and S-glutathionylation, which are also reversiblemodifications. Mitochondrial targeting of XJB attenuates or improves pathophysiology in HdhQ animals with well-developed disease phenotypes. Reactive cysteines of the kDa heat shock protein, Hsp Under normal physiological conditions, for ROS to work as a signaling molecule, the ROS must generate reversible oxidation and exhibit substrate specificity [ 45 ].

The pathology of the disease has been attributed to toxic gain of functions for the mutant huntingtin protein, such as protein aggregation, transcriptional dysregulation, defective energy metabolism, oxidative stress, excitotoxicity, and inflammation [ 5—17 ], as well as bta the loss of beneficial functions of wild type huntingtin protein Httwhich includes BDNF translation, vesicle transport and as scaffold for autophagic machinery [ 18—21 ].

It is essential moving forward that the HD community be vigilant about performing studies in which redox balance can be modulated via specific molecular or pharmacological tools. Now, it is a well-established notion that the amount of ROS production dictates the degree of pro-inflammatory response. PTPs, however, depend upon a redox sensitive oxiracion for their enzymatic activity.

ROS as signaling molecules play important regulatory functions in a number of other pathways described in later sections of this review. This balance facilitates the ability of oxidants, such as reactive oxygen species, pedoxisomal play critical regulatory functions through a direct modification of a small number of amino acids e.


These oxidation products are also some of the commonly used markers of protein oxidation. Clinical relevance of biomarkers of oxidative stress. ROS as signalling molecules: In order to counteract the RLS mediated oxidativc stress, cells have evolved a transcriptional pathway modified andactivated by electrophilic stress, called nuclear factor E2-related factor-2 Nrf The ARE is present in the promoter regions of established Nrf-2 target genes involved in cellular defense and metabolism.

Moreover, based on the mitochondrial hypothesis of HD pathogenesis, some chemically-induced mice models of HD, such as malonate A reversible inhibitor of mitochondrial complex II and 3-nitropropionic acid 3-NP, an irreversible inhibitor of mitochondrial complex II injected mice, have also been produced that lead to oxidative stress and show selective striatal neuronal atrophy and defective neuro-motor function very similar to that seen in human HD patients [ — ].

Oxidative stress and lipotoxicity. However, the removal of oxidized bases may trigger CAGexpansion [ 95 ].

Specifically, the hairpin loop and other secondary structures formed during nucleotide repeat expansion were shown to oxidacikn it more susceptible to oxidative damage, leading to the accumulation of more oxidative bases [ 97 ] which, in turn, could enhance the incidence of aberrant repair and increase the instability of trinucleotide repeats [ 98 ]. Perodisomal oxidizes polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFA of phospholipid membranes, leading to the formationof oxidized ixidacion, such as malonaldehyde, 4-hydroxynonenal 4-HNE and isoprostanes [ 39 ].

In some studies, these biomarkers have been used to identify the dose of a putative antioxidant, but, again, there is no evidence that directly correlates or associates these changes to cell death; thus, they could simply be tombstones of cells already committed to die.

The induction is observed despite no morphological or biochemical evidence of cell death in cortical neurons.

Omega oxidation

DNA breakage and induction of DNA damage response proteins precede the appearance of visible mutant huntingtin aggregates. A major concern when one observes multiple indices of oxidative damage is that the cell has made a commitment to die and accordingly it has disabled homeostatic mechanisms that prevent buildup of oxidative damage in proteins. Accordingly, Keap-1 changes its conformation [ betq, which causes release of Nrf-2 followed by its nuclear translocation [ ].


Repression of adaptive responses to oxidative stress leads to persistent stress at a cellular, local and systemic level and ultimately cell demise. A phase 2, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

The numerous potential nodes of redox modulation highlight an additional complexity to study the role of oxidative stress in HD. It is formally possible that mechanisms involved in repair of peroxsiomal bases might promote tissue specific expansion of trinucleotide repeats and lead to selective vulnerability of some neurons in HD, as opposed to others. In this regard, a recent study showed a significant increase in lipid peroxidation and decrease in glutathione levels in the plasma of asymptomatic HD gene carriers compared with age and sex matched healthy subjects [ ].

These findings raise several interesting possibilities. H2O2, a necessary evil for cell signaling. By contrast, copper has been shown to directly interact with N-terminal end of huntingtin to catalyze cysteine oxidation, cross-linking at itsN-terminal end and consequent mHtt oligomerization.

Additionally, there pwroxisomal other sources of intracellular ROS production, such as cytochrome P enzymes of the endoplasmic reticulum, peroxisomal flavin oxidases, xanthine oxidase, and plasma membrane NADPH oxidases [ 38 ]. Recently, other redox dependent post-translational modifications of proteins such as S-nitosylation, S-sulfenylation, S-glutathionylation, and S-sulfhydration have also oxidaciion used as markers of protein oxidation [ 84 ].

Oxidative Stress and Huntington’s Disease: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Indeed, other coactivators or transcription factors including the PGC1alpha family may influence redox homeostasis indirectly via their ability to induce mitochondrial biogenesis oxidafion ]. Interestingly, the oxidative marker lipofuscin was reported to be increased in a very selective manner only in susceptible neurons and not in spared neurons in the caudatenucleus [ 22 ].

Pyridoxalphosphate plays an important role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and GABA and the versatile antioxidant, glutathione [ ].
