Abstract

Growing number of publication has proved an increasing of cellular function of the Fanconi anemia proteins. To chromosome stability and DNA repair new roles have been attributed to FA proteins in oxidative stress response and homeostasis, immune response and cytokines sensibility, gene expression. Our work shows a new role for FA-A protein: the organization of the cellular structure. By 2D-PAGE of FA-A and correct fibroblasts treated and untreated with H2O2 we identify different expression of protein involved in the structural organization of nucleus, intermediate filaments and mitochondria. Immunofluorescence and electronic microscopy analysis clearly show an already altered cellular structure in normal culture condition and this worsted after oxidative stress. FA-A cell appears structurally prone to physiologic stress and this could explain part of the phenotype of FA cells.
