1.Involvement of AMPA/kainate-excitotoxicity in MK801-induced neuronal death in the retrosplenial cortex.
Bender C;Rassetto M;de Olmos JS;de Olmos S;Lorenzo A Neuroscience. 2010 Aug 25;169(2):720-32. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroscience.2010.05.007. Epub 2010 May 10.
MK801 is a prototypical non-competitive NMDA receptor-antagonist that induces behavioural changes and reversible toxicity at low doses, while at higher doses triggers neuronal death that mainly affects the retrosplenial cortex (RSC) and to a lesser extent other structures such as the posterolateral cortical amygdaloid nucleus (PLCo). The mechanism of MK801-induced neurodegeneration remains poorly understood. In this study we analysed the participation of GABA-ergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission in MK801-induced neuronal death. We used a single i.p. injection of MK801 (2.5 mg/kg) that induced moderate neuronal death in the RSC and PLCo of female rats, and combined this treatment with the i.p., i.c.v., or intra-RSC infusion of drugs that are selective agonists or antagonists of the GABA-ergic or glutamatergic neurotransmission. We found that neuronal death in the RSC, but not the PLCo, was significantly reduced by the i.p. injection of thiopental, and the i.c.v. application of muscimol, both GABA-A agonists. MK801-toxicity in RSC was abrogated by intra-RSC infusion of muscimol, but the GABA antagonist picrotoxin had no effect. HPLC-analysis showed that levels of glutamate, but not GABA, in the RSC decreased after i.
2.Nucleus Accumbens AMPA Receptors Are Necessary for Morphine-Withdrawal-Induced Negative-Affective States in Rats.
Russell SE;Puttick DJ;Sawyer AM;Potter DN;Mague S;Carlezon WA Jr;Chartoff EH J Neurosci. 2016 May 25;36(21):5748-62. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.2875-12.2016.
Dependence is a hallmark feature of opiate addiction and is defined by the emergence of somatic and affective withdrawal signs. The nucleus accumbens (NAc) integrates dopaminergic and glutamatergic inputs to mediate rewarding and aversive properties of opiates. Evidence suggests that AMPA glutamate-receptor-dependent synaptic plasticity within the NAc underlies aspects of addiction. However, the degree to which NAc AMPA receptors (AMPARs) contribute to somatic and affective signs of opiate withdrawal is not fully understood. Here, we show that microinjection of the AMPAR antagonist NBQX into the NAc shell of morphine-dependent rats prevented naloxone-induced conditioned place aversions and decreases in sensitivity to brain stimulation reward, but had no effect on somatic withdrawal signs. Using a protein cross-linking approach, we found that the surface/intracellular ratio of NAc GluA1, but not GluA2, increased with morphine treatment, suggesting postsynaptic insertion of GluA2-lacking AMPARs. Consistent with this, 1-naphthylacetyl spermine trihydrochloride (NASPM), an antagonist of GluA2-lacking AMPARs, attenuated naloxone-induced decreases in sensitivity to brain stimulation reward.
3.GluA2 trafficking is involved in apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells induced by activation of EphB/EphrinB reverse signaling in a rat chronic ocular hypertension model.
Dong LD;Gao F;Wang XH;Miao Y;Wang SY;Wu Y;Li F;Wu J;Cheng XL;Sun XH;Yang XL;Wang Z J Neurosci. 2015 Apr 1;35(13):5409-21. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.4376-14.2015.
EphB1, expressed in Müller cells, and ephrinB2, expressed in both Müller cells and retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), constitute an EphB/ephrinB reverse signaling in RGCs. Whether and how this reverse signaling is involved in RGC apoptosis in a rat chronic ocular hypertension (COH) model was investigated. In the COH model, both EphB1 and ephrinB2 were significantly increased and the reverse signaling was activated, which was accompanied by increased protein levels of phosphorylated (p) src, GluA2, and p-GluA2. Intravitreal injection of EphB2-Fc, an activator of ephrinB2, induced an increase in TUNEL-positive signals in normal retinae. A coimmunoprecipitation assay demonstrated direct interactions among ephrinB2, p-src, and GluA2. Moreover, in COH rats the expression of GluA2 proteins on the surface of retinal cells was decreased. Such GluA2 endocytosis could be prevented by preoperational intravitreal injection of 4-amino-3-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-(t-butyl)-1H-pyrazolo [3,4-d] pyrimidine (PP2), an inhibitor of src family tyrosine kinases, and possibly involved the protein interacting with C kinase 1 and phosphorylation of GluA2. In normal rats, intravitreal injection of EphB2-Fc caused changes in these protein levels similar to those observed in COH rats, which all could be avoided by preinjection of PP2.
