General description

Seladin-1 (selective Alzheimer′s disease indicator-1) is an anti-apoptotic gene. It is a human homolog of the Diminuto/Dwarf1 gene described in plants andC. elegans. Seladin-1 is encoded by the DHCR24 (3-b-hydroxysterol-D-24-reductase) gene, a flavin-adenine-dinucleotide (FAD)-dependent oxidoreductase. It is mainly located in the endoplasmic reticulum.


synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 68-85 of human seladin-1, conjugated to KLH.


Anti-Seladin-1 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Seladin-1 (selective Alzheimer′s disease indicator-1) catalyzes the conversion of desmosterol to cholesterol. It prevents apoptosis via inhibition of caspase-3, a key mediator of the apoptotic cascade, suggesting that seladin-1 may be involved in the regulation of cell survival and death. Decreased expression of seladin-1 in specific neurons is linked to Alzheimer′s disease (AD). Seladin-1 functions as a key mediator of Ras-induced senescence in mouse and human fibroblasts. It protects neurons from β-amyloid toxicity and oxidative stress. Seladin-1 is involved in cholesterol homeostasis.

In Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains, selected populations of neurons degenerate heavily, whereas others are frequently spared from degeneration. To address the cellular basis for this selective vulnerability of neurons in distinct brain regions, we compared gene expression between the severely...
