Abstract [en]

Reversible protein phosphorylation regulates the biological activities of many human proteins involved in crucial cellular processes, e.g., protein-protein interactions, cell signaling, gene transcription, cell growth, and death. A malfunction of cellular homeostasis in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells is involved in the age-related retinal degeneration. In this study, we examined cytotoxicity in human RPE cells subjected to the protein phosphatase inhibitor, okadaic acid (OA). Moreover, the influence of Hsp90 inhibitor geldanamycin (GA), a benzoquinone ansamycin, in cytoprotection was assessed. Hsp70 protein levels were analyzed by Western blot. Cellular viability was determined by LDH and MTT assays. To study apoptotic cell death, caspase-3 enzyme activity was measured by assaying the cleavage of a fluorescent peptide substrate and Hoechst dye was used to visualize nuclear morphology. OA treatment caused morphological changes and induced cytotoxicity by caspase-3-independent manner in the RPE cells. No evidence of nuclear fragmentation was observed in response to OA. Interestingly, GA treatment accumulated Hsp70 protein and attenuated OA-induced cytotoxicity. This study suggests that Hsp70 and Hsp90 are closely related to cytoprotection of RPE cells in response to protein phosphatase inhibition.
