Mutations in DJ-1/PARK7 have been identified as a cause of autosomal-recessive Parkinson's disease (PD) and the antioxidant property of DJ-1 has been shown to be involved in the regulation of mitochondrial function and neuronal cell survival. In this study, we first found that DJ-1 transgene mitigated MPTP-induced DA neuron cell death and cell loss. We then observed that the protein levels of DJ-1 were significantly decreased, whereas levels of Fis1 were noticeably increased in the striatum of MPTP-treated mice. In addition to our identification of RNF5 as an E3-ligase for Fis1 ubiquitination, we demonstrated the DJ-1/Akt/RNF5 signaling pathway's involvement in the regulation of Fis1 proteasomal degradation. In other experiments, we found that Akt1 enhances the mitochondrial translocation and E3-ligase activity of RNF5 leading to the Fis1 degradation. Together, the identification of Fis1 degradation by DJ-1 signaling in the regulation of oxidative stress-induced neuronal cell death supplies a novel mechanism of DJ-1 in neuronal protection with the implication of DJ-1 in a potential therapeutic avenue for Parkinson's diseases.
