    Inhibition of astrocytes promotes long-distance growing nerve fibers in ventral mesencephalic cultures2008In: International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, ISSN 0736-5748, E-ISSN 1873-474X, Vol. 26, no 7, p. 683-691Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tyrosine hydroxylase-positive nerve fiber formation occurs in two diverse morphological patterns in rat fetal ventral mesencephalic slice cultures; one is non-glial-associated and the other is glial-associated. The aim of this study was to characterize the non-glial-associated nerve fibers and its relation to migration of astrocytes. Organotypic slice cultures were prepared from embryonic days 12, 14, and 18 rat fetuses and maintained for 5, 7 or 14 days in vitro. Inhibition of cell proliferation using cytosine beta-D-arabinofuranoside was conducted in embryonic day 14 ventral mesencephalic cultures. The treatment impaired astrocytic migration at 7 and 14 days in vitro. The reduced migration of astrocytes exerted a negative effect on the glial-associated tyrosine hydroxylase-positive nerve fibers, reducing the outgrowth from the tissue slice. The non-glial-associated outgrowth was, however, positively affected by reduced astrocytic migration, reaching distances around 3mm in 2 weeks, and remained for longer time in culture. Co-cultures of fetal ventral mesencephalon and frontal cortex revealed the cortex as a target for the non-glial-associated tyrosine hydroxylase-positive outgrowth. The age of the fetal tissue at plating affected the astrocytes such that older tissue increased the length of astrocyte migration. Younger tissue at plating promoted the presence of non-glial-associated outgrowth and long radial-glia-like processes, while older tissue promoted migration of neurons instead of formation of nerve fiber network. In conclusion, inhibition of astrocytic proliferation promotes the persistence of long-distance growing tyrosine hydroxylase-positive nerve fibers in ventral mesencephalic slices cultures. Furthermore, the long-distance growing nerve fibers target the frontal cortex and are absent in cultures derived from older tissue.

    Blocking cd47/ox101 makes the astrocytes permissive for nerve fiber growth2011In: Glia: 10th European meeting on Glial Cells in Health and Disease, New York, N.Y.: Wiley-Liss, Inc. , 2011, Vol. 59, p. S105-S106Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Crosstalk between astroglia and nerve fiber outgrowth might be an underlying mechanism for regeneration of nerve fibers and can be used in treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This crosstalk might occur through the integrin-associated protein (CD47 in mouse or OX101 in rat), which serves as a ligand for signal regulatory protein-α (Sirpα) (P84/SHPS-1 in mouse or OX41 in rat), and as a receptor for thrombospondin (TSP). In the present study the localization of OX101 was assessed in organotypic tissue cultures from ventral mesencephalon (VM) of embryonic day (E) 14 rat fetuses, and its presence in astrocytes was observed. Thereafter, the effect of OX101 was blocked in E14 VM cultures by treatment with OX101 antibodies. A robust tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)- positive nerve fiber outgrowth was observed using immuohistochemistry. In addition, the neurons had migrated from the tissue slice. This result was in parallel with results achieved from E14 cultures of CD47 knockout mice, in which TH–positive nerve fiber growth was robust and independent of the presence of astrocytes, whilst in wildtype cultures nerve fibers were restricted to the astrocytes. Thus, these data demonstrate that CD47/OX101 can be an important molecule, which normally is produced by astrocytes and in its absence, the astrocytes become more permissive for nerve fiber growth.

    Degradation of proteoglycans affects astrocytes and neurite formation in organotypic tissue cultures2014In: Brain Research, ISSN 0006-8993, E-ISSN 1872-6240, Vol. 1564, p. 22-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs) promote nerve growth during development, and inhibit axonal growth in the adult CNS after injury. Chondroitinase ABC (ChABC) and methyl-umbelliferyl-β-d-xyloside (β-xyloside), two enzymes that degrade CSPGs, promote regeneration after injury, however, they demonstrate opposing results in tissue culture. To elucidate the effect of the two enzymes, organotypic tissue cultures, treated with ChABC or β-xyloside, were employed to monitor nerve fiber outgrowth and astrocytic migration. Rat ventral mesencephalon (VM) and spinal cord (SC) from embryonic day (E) 14 and E18 were treated early, from the plating day for 14 days in vitro, or late where treatment was initiated after being cultured for 14 days. In the early treatment of E14 VM and SC cultures, astrocytic migration and nerve fiber outgrowth were hampered using both enzymes. Early treatment of E18 cultures reduced the astrocytic migration, while nerve growth was promoted by β-xyloside, but not by ChABC. In the late treated cultures of both E14 and E18 cultures, no differences in distances that astrocytes migrated or nerve fiber growth were observed. However, in β-xyloside-treated cultures, the confluency of astrocytic monolayer was disrupted. In E18 cultures both early and late treatments, neuronal migration was present in control cultures, which was preserved using ChABC but not β-xyloside. In conclusion, ChABC and β-xyloside had similar effects and hampered nerve fiber growth and astrocytic migration in E14 cultures. In E18 cultures nerve fiber growth was stimulated and neuronal migration was hampered after β-xyloside treatment while ChABC treatment did not exert these effects.

    From dopamine nerve fiber formation to astrocytes2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease and characterized by the loss of dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra in the midbrain. The causes of the disease are still unknown. The most commonly used treatment is administration of L-DOPA, however, another possible treatment strategy is to transplant DA neurons to the striatum of PD patients to substitute the loss of neurons. Clinical trials have demonstrated beneficial effects from transplantation, but one obstacle with the grafting trials has been the variable outcome, where limited graft reinnervation of the host brain is one important issue to solve. To improve and control the graft DA nerve fiber outgrowth organotypic tissue cultures can be utilized. Cultures of fetal ventral mesencephalon (VM) have been used to investigate astrocytic migration and dopamine nerve fiber formations at different time points and under varying conditions to study how to control nerve fiber formation. The early appearing DA nerve fibers as revealed by tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) –immunoreactivity, form their fibers in the absence of glial cell bodies, are not persistent over time, and is called non-glial-associated TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth. A monolayer of astrocytes guides a second persistent subpopulation of nerve fibers, the glial-associated TH-positive nerve fiber formation. Investigations of the interactions between the astrocytic migration and nerve fiber formations were made. In embryonic (E) day 14 VM cultures the mitosis of the astrocytes was inhibited with the antimitotic agent β-D-arabinofuranoside. The results revealed decreased astrocytic migration, reduced glial-associated TH-positive outgrowth, and enhanced presence of the non-glial-associated TH-positive outgrowth in the cultures. Thus, astrocytes affect both the non-glial- and the glial-associated growths by either its absence or presence, respectively. The astrocytes synthesize proteoglycans. Therefore the nerve fiber formation was studied in VM or spinal cord cultures treated with the proteoglycan blockers chondroitinase ABC (ChABC), which degrades the proteoglycans, or methyl-umbelliferyl-β-D-xyloside (β-xyloside), which blocks the proteoglycan synthesis. β-xyloside inhibited the migration of the astrocytes and the outgrowth of the glial-associated TH-positive nerve fibers in both VM and spinal cord cultures, whereas ChABC treatment had no effect in E14 VM or spinal cord cultures. E18 VM and spinal cord cultures were evaluated to investigate how the different developmental stages influence astrocytes and the two nerve fiber formations after 14 DIV. No nerve fiber formation was found in E18 VM cultures, while the non-glial-associated nerve fiber outgrowth was obvious as long and robust fibers in E18 spinal cord cultures. The astrocytic migration was similar in VM and spinal cord cultures. β-xyloside and ChABC did not affect nerve fiber growth but astrocytic migration in E18 VM cultures, while no effects was found in the spinal cord cultures. However, the neuronal migration found in control cultures was abolished in both VM and spinal cord cultures after both ChABC and β-xyloside. Neuroinflammation plays a critical role in the development of PD. Increased levels of the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) are observed in postmortem PD brains and the levels of TNFα receptors on circulating T-lymphocytes in cerebrospinal fluid of PD patients are increased. The effects of TNFα were studied on E14 VM cultures. The outgrowth of the non-glial-associated TH-positive nerve fibers was inhibited while it stimulated astrocytic migration and glial-associated TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth at an early treatment time point. Furthermore, blocking the endogenous levels of TNFα resulted in cell death of the TH-positive neurons. Furthermore, cultures of E14 mice with gene deletion for the protein CD47 were investigated. CD47 is expressed in all tissues and serves as a ligand for the signal regulatory protein (SIRP) α, which promotes e.g migration and synaptogenesis. CD47-/- cultures displayed massive and long non-glial-associated TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth despite a normal astrocytic migration and the presence of glial-associated TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth. For the first time, it was observed that the non-glial-guided TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth did not degenerate after 14 DIV. Taken together, there is an interaction between astrocytes and TH-positive nerve fiber formations. Both nerve fiber formations seem to have their task during the development of the DA system.

    Dual effects of TNFalpha on nerve fiber formation from ventral mesencephalic organotypic tissue cultures2008In: Brain Research, ISSN 0006-8993, E-ISSN 1872-6240, Vol. 1215, p. 30-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) is toxic to dopamine neurons and increased levels of TNFalpha are observed in Parkinson's disease. Dopamine nerve fiber outgrowth in organotypic cultures of fetal ventral mesencephalon occurs in two waves. The early appearing nerve fibers are formed in the absence of astroglia, while migrating astrocytes guide the late appearing dopamine nerve fibers. TNFalpha (40 ng/ml) was added to the medium of organotypic ventral mesencephalic tissue cultures between days 4-7 and 11-14. The cultures were evaluated at days 7 or 19 to study the effects of TNFalpha on both types of nerve fiber formation. Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-immunohistochemistry demonstrated that the number of cultures showing non-glial-guided TH-positive outgrowth was reduced compared to controls, when TNFalpha was added at day 4. By contrast, the glial-guided TH-positive nerve fiber outgrowth and the astrocytic migration reached significantly longer distances by early TNFalpha treatment. Ki67-immunohistochemistry revealed that TNFalpha did not affect proliferation of astrocytes. Treatment with TNFalpha and antibodies against TNFalpha receptor 1 between days 4 and 7 revealed that the non-glial-guided TH-positive outgrowth reappeared. TNFalpha treatment between days 11 and 14 triggered neither the TH-positive glial-guided outgrowth, nor promoted the astrocytic migration to reach longer distances. The number of microglia was significantly increased after the late but not early TNFalpha treatment. In conclusion, TNFalpha is toxic for the non-glial dopaminergic nerve fiber outgrowth but stimulates the glial-guided outgrowth and the migration of astrocytes at an early time point. TNFalpha increased the number of microglia in VM tissue cultures after late but not after early treatment.

    Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor is crucial for long-term maintenance of the nigrostriatal system2010In: Neuroscience, ISSN 0306-4522, E-ISSN 1873-7544, Vol. 171, no 4, p. 1357-1366Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is a potent factor for the ventral mesencephalic dopamine neurons. However, studies on the Gdnf gene deleted (Gdnf(-/-)) mouse have been limited to fetal tissue since these mice die prematurely. To evaluate long-term effects of Gdnf gene deletion, this study involves co-grafts of ventral mesencephalon (VM) and lateral ganglionic eminence (LGE) derived from different Gdnf genotypes. The VM/LGE co-grafts were evaluated at 3, 6, and 12 months for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) -positive cell survival and nerve fiber formation in the LGE co-transplant, visualized by dopamine- and cyclic AMP-regulated phosphoprotein relative molecular mass 32,000 (DARPP-32) -immunoreactivity. Cell counts revealed no difference in TH-positive neurons between Gdnf genotypes at 3 months postgrafting. At 6 months, a significant reduction in cell number was observed in the Gdnf(-/-) grafts. In fact, in the majority of the Gdnf(-/-) VM/LGE transplant had degenerated. At 12 months, a reduction in cell number was seen in both Gdnf(-/-) and Gdnf(+/-) compared to wild type transplants. In the Gdnf(-/-) grafts, TH-negative inclusion-like structures were present in the cytoplasm of the TH-positive neurons at 3 months. These structures were also found in the Gdnf(+/-) transplants at 12 months, but not in Gdnf(+/+) controls at any time point. In Gdnf(+/+) grafts, TH-positive nerve fiber innervation of the striatal co-grafts was dense and patchy and overlapped with clusters of DARPP-32-positive neurons. This overlap did mismatch in the Gdnf(+/-) grafts, while the TH-positive innervation was sparse in the Gdnf(-/-) transplants and the DARPP-32-positive neurons were widespread distributed. In conclusion, GDNF is essential for long-term maintenance of both the VM TH-positive neurons and for the striatal tissue, and appears crucial for generation of a proper organization of the striatum.
