    Here, we provide an out-of-the-box G-quadruplex (G4) targeting-based strategy for rescuing mitochondrial dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease. We predict and verify the presence of G4s within the promoter of an ageing epigenetic regulator BAZ2B. G4-specific ligands targeting BAZ2B G4s could significantly down-regulate the BAZ2B expression and relieve mitochondrial dysfunction. Therefore, this work may provide a new way of rescuing mitochondrial dysfunction in AD by targeting G4s in a specific ageing epigenetic regulator promoter.
