This interaction seems to be essential for nCLU’s pro-apoptotic functions. Ku70 is a crucial component of the double-strand DNA repair complex Ku70/Ku80. Binding of nCLU to Ku70 could disrupt the repair complex, leading to a failure to repair damaged DNA, and ultimately apoptosis of the cell . As CLU is expressed in virtually all tissues and shows a high degree of conservation across mammalian species (see Fig. 4), it may be assumed that its role is one of fundamental importance biologically.
Secondly, CLU may be able to facilitate clearance of Aβ across the BBB. It has been demonstrated that CLU-Aβ complexes can cross the BBB . Bell et al. found that administering CLU-Aβ42 complexes to mouse brains gave an almost twofold increase in clearance rate across the BBB compared to Aβ42 alone, an effect that was disrupted by antibodies against megalin . Interestingly, the known AD risk allele of ApoE, ε4, has been shown to be less efficient in Aβ clearance via this mechanism .
Fig. 6 Nearby genes. gov/gene/1191). Chromosomal co-ordinates listed at the top of the figure, with genes and orientations displayed below 40 kb. This is a putative tumour suppressor gene, implicated in ovarian and prostate cancers [85, 86], and has been shown to be induced by oxidative stress . However, there are no known variants outside of CLU that are in strong LD with the AD associated SNPs from GWAS, so it is likely that the causative variants underlying the association fall within CLU itself.
