Summary of "An SOD1 deficiency aggravates proteasome inhibitor bortezomib-induced testicular damage in mice."

Proteasomes play a key role in maintaining cellular homeostasis by the proteolytic removal of proteins, including ubiquitinated proteins and/or oxidatively-damaged proteins. The proteasome inhibitor bortezomib (BTZ) has been reported to exert testicular toxicity in mice. In the current study, we treated SOD1-knockout (KO) mice with BTZ and investigated the issue of whether oxidative stress is involved in the development of testicular toxicity. The BTZ treatment significantly increased superoxide production and cell death in the testes of SOD1-KO mice compared to wild-type (WT) mice. We also found that high levels of both ubiquitinated proteins and p62 accumulated and underwent aggregation in the seminiferous tubules of BTZ-injected SOD1-KO mice. Furthermore, the proteolytic activities of proteasomes were significantly decreased in the testes of BTZ-injected SOD1-KO mice compared to their WT counterparts. These results suggest that a combination of oxidative stress caused by an SOD1 deficiency and proteasome inhibition by BTZ accelerates the impairment of proteasomes, which results in severe testicular damage in SOD1-KO mice.

A superoxide dismutase (SOD1) that requires copper and zinc ions for its activity to destroy SUPEROXIDE FREE RADICALS within the CYTOPLASM. Mutations in the SOD1 gene are associated with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS-1.

Compounds that inhibit the function or proteolytic action of the PROTEASOME.

An INK4 cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor containing five ANKYRIN REPEATS. Aberrant expression of this protein has been associated with TESTICULAR CANCER.

The twisting of the SPERMATIC CORD due to an anatomical abnormality that left the TESTIS mobile and dangling in the SCROTUM. The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.
