Mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) has been shown to protect against oxidative stress in multiple organs. ALDH2 has a role in preventing oxidative stress-induced 4-HNE adduction in multiple organs. As a result, ALDH2 may have an unidentified protein interaction network, which would help elucidate its importance in various cellular functions. Studies show that ALDH2 aids in protecting the lungs against oxidative stress. We are studying ALDH2 in the lung because it has been demonstrated to be critical to the integrity of lung cells and an important shield from damage occurring under oxidative stress.
Since information regarding the ALDH2 interactome is limited, exploring cells which assume different cell profiles, type II AEC and club cell, may give us new insight of ALDH2’s counteractive role against oxidative stress.
Results show that ALDH2 may have an unidentified protein interaction network, which would help elucidate its importance in various cellular functions. The combination of immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry will give us insights that could not be easily attained otherwise.

Characterization of a Type 2 diabetes-associated islet-specific enhancer cluster in STARD10 by genome editing of EndoC-βH1 cellsPoster
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified more than 100 genetic loci associated with type 2 diabetes. The majority of these are located in the intergenic or intragenic regions suggesting that the implicated variants may alter chromatin conformation. This, in turn, is likely to influence the expression of nearby or more remotely located genes to alter beta cell function. At present, however, detailed molecular and functional analyses are still lacking for most of these variants. We recently analysed one of these loci and mapped five causal variants in an islet-specific enhancer cluster within the STARD10 gene locus. Here, we aimed to understand how these causal variants influence b-cell function by alteration of the chromatin structure of enhancer clusterREAD MORE
