FGF-2-mediated protection of cultured mesencephalic dopaminergic neurons against MPTP and MPP+: specificity and impact of culture conditions, non-dopaminergic neurons, and astroglial cells.
The protective role of basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) for 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)- and methylpyridiniumion (MPP+)-lesioned dopaminergic (DAergic) nigrostriatal neurons was studied, using dissociated cell cultures of embryonic day (E) 14 rat mesencephalon. Cells were grown in different culture media and received FGF-2 (5 ng/ml) and/or the toxins (5 microM) at various schedules, but were consistently allowed to differentiate for 3 days prior to becoming exposed to the toxin. Survival of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-immunoreactive cells at 7 days was only markedly impaired by MPTP, if horse serum (HS) or bovine serum albumin (BSA) were omitted from the culture medium. FGF-2 increased the number of TH-immunoreactive cells, and this increase was not diminished by MPTP under any culture condition. Uptake of 3H-DA was significantly reduced by MPTP in HS- and BSA-containing, but not in protein-less cultures. A protective effect by FGF-2 was only seen in the presence of BSA. MPP+ caused a more pronounced reduction in 3H-DA uptake than MPTP, and this effect was partially reversed by the addition of FGF-2, unless cultures contained HS. Neurofilament protein (NF), and indirect measure for the total number of neurons present in the cultures, was not significantly reduced by MPTP or MPP+ corroborating the specificity of the toxin for DAergic neurons, which constitute only a minor fraction in these cultures. In line with the wide spectrum of target neurons of FGF-2, this factor significantly increased NF contents under any culture condition. Quantification of the amounts of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) revealed stimulatory effects of FGF-2 (2.5- to 4-fold) and at least 10-fold higher levels in the presence as compared to the absence of HS. These data show that FGF-2 can protect DAergic neurons against MPTP- and MPP(+)-mediated damage. However, the effects of the toxins as well as of FGF-2 are partially dependent on culture conditions. Variations in the effectiveness of toxins and FGF-2 are not overtly related to the total numbers of neurons or astroglial cells, but may reflect culture type-dependent alterations of neuronal and glial metabolism.
