Research Interest

The goal of his research laboratory is to unravel the pathophysiological mechanism of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 10 (17β-HSD10) deficiency and Alzheimer's disease for the development of effective treatments of neurodegenerative disorders. The research scope is an expansion of our previous 18 years of research focus on the HSD17B10 gene and the gene product 17β-HSD10. His research group first cloned this gene from human brain, decoded the HSD17B10 gene structure, and characterized 17β-HSD10, which is a homotetrameric mitochondrial multifunctional enzyme. We found 17β-HSD10 playing a critical part in the metabolism of isoleucine and neuroactive steroids. We discovered its unique role in the oxidative inactivation of allopregnanolone (ALLOP) and the biosynthesis of dihydrotest- osterone (DHT). Based upon our findings we proposed a revised molecular switch theory. The maintenance of homeostasis of 17β-HSD10 is critical to the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson disease, and 17β-HSD10 deficienccy, an interlectual developmental disability.
His research group also has comprehensive research experience in the elucidation of molecular mechanism of fatty acid oxidation especially the HADH gene and the gene product L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
