Description: The recent development of a series of mitochondrial targeted peptides that can inhibit MPT provides an opportunity to examine the potential of MPT inhibition as an approach to the treatment of PD. The SS (Szeto-Schiller) peptides are cell-permeable synthetic tetrapeptides that selectively partition to the inner mitochondrial membrane . Although these peptides carry 3+ net charge at physiologic pH, their mitochondrial uptake is not dependent on mitochondrial potential, and they do not cause mitochondrial depolarization. These mitochondrial-targeted peptides decrease mitochondrial ROS production, and inhibit mitochondrial swelling and cytochrome c release in isolated mitochondria. SS-20 at a dose of 4 mg/kg also produced complete neuroprotection against loss of dopaminergic neurons in the SNpc. The ability of SS-20 to protect against MPTP neurotoxicity in the whole animal and prevent MPP+-induced cytotoxicity suggests that the cytoprotective effects of these compounds may occur by mechanisms other than scavenging ROS.
