To elucidate the pathogenesis of familial spastic paraplegia type SPG3A it is important to understand the mutant disease protein atlastin-1 with regard to subcellular localisation at cell membranes, to its network of protein interactors, and its function as a GTPase. Using the yeast-2-hybrid-technique, we have identified an interactor-candidate, which exhibits several similarities with the SPG disease protein spastin. We plan to study its tissue expression and subcellular localization, to generate cDNA-clones of full-length with tag-markers as well as antibodies, and use them to perform colocalization and coimmunoprecipitation analyses with respect to atlastin-1 and this interactor-canidate. Hopefully, the results will shed light on the biological pathways between different disease proteins of spastic paraplegia.

For the results look to the following publications:
