  • 초록

    Lead has long been considered as a toxic environmental pollutant that severely damages the central nervous system. In various neurogenerative diseases, actrocytes become activated by proinflammatory cytokines. In the present study, we investigated whether lead (Pb $^{2+}$ ) affects inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in activated glial cells. Rat primary glial cells were stimulated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 1 ${\mu}$ g/ml) plus IFN $_{\gamma}$ (100 U/ml). Pre-treatment of Pb $^{2+}$ increased nitric oxide (NO) production in LPS/IFN $_{\gamma}$ -stimulated glial cells. Lead itself, however, suppressed the basal production of NO in control glial cells. Addition of the iNOS inhibitors L-NAME (1 mM) and L-NNA (800 ${\mu}$ M) prevented the Pb $^{2+}$ -induced increase in NO production. Western blot analysis showed that pre-treatment of Pb $^{2+}$ augmented LPS/IFN $_{\gamma}$ -induced increase in iNOS immunoreactivity, which was well correlated with the increased NO production. In addition, pre-treatment of Pb $^{2+}$ synergistically increased the iNOS mRNA expression induced by LPS and IFN ${\gamma}$ . The present results indicate that lead intoxication adversely affect brain function by potentiating iNOS expression and NO production in activated glial cells observed in various neurodegenerative diseases.
