Mitochondrial biogenesis is regulated by the PGC-1α-NRF-TFAM pathway. We found decreased expression of these molecules in both AD hippocampal tissues and APPswe M17 cells. PGC-1α over-expression could completely rescue while PGC-1α knockdown could exacerbate impaired mitochondrial biogenesis and mitochondrial deficits in APPswe cells. Furthermore, the PKA/CREB pathway plays a critical role in the regulation of PGC-1α expression in APPswe cells.
