Abstract: Recombinant human mitochondrial transcription factor A protein (rhTFAM) was evaluated for its acute effects on cultured cells and chronic effects in mice. Fibroblasts incubated with rhTFAM acutely increased respiration in a chloramphenicol-sensitive manner. SH-SY5Y cells showed rhTFAM concentration-dependent reduction of methylpyridinium (MPP+)-induced oxidative stress and increases in lowered ATP levels and viability. Mice treated with weekly i.v. rhTFAM showed increased mitochondrial gene copy number, Complex I protein levels and ATP production rates; oxidative damage to proteins was decreased ~50%. rhTFAM treatment improved motor recovery rate after treatment with MPTP and dose-dependently improved survival in the lipopolysaccharide model of endotoxin sepsis.
