I want to apply latex interpreter to axis numbers set(gca,'TickLabelInterpreter','latex'); But I can not make the axis numbers bold, set(gca,'fontweight','bold') doesn't work. Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

With the LaTeX interpreter you need to define the label as '{\boldmath$\alpha$}' to get a bold face font.
axesH = gca;
axesH.XAxis.TickLabelInterpreter = 'latex'
axesH.XAxis.TickLabelFormat = '\\textbf{%g}';
Two \ are required, because at first sprintf is applied and then the LaTeX interpreter.

"It does not work" is not a useful explanation of what's going wrong. I do not see how you tried to implement my suggestion.
The bold-face of the axes' font weight are applied only if the text interpreter is set to 'none':
For an example with LaTeX see [EDITED] in my answer.
