Hyperglycemia increased brain ischemia injury through extracellular signal-regulated protein Kinase

, : Hyperglycemia increased brain ischemia injury through extracellular signal-regulated protein Kinase. Pathology, Research and Practice 202(1): 31-36

This study was to examine the alterations in the phosphorylation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) family in transient brain ischemia under a hyperglycemia and to highlight the molecular mechanisms by which hyperglycemia exacerbates brain damage resulting from stroke. Extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) expression was studied in rats subjected to global brain ischemia with pre-ischemic normoglycemic (CIN) and hyperglycemic (CIH) conditions. In another group, the hyperglycemic ischemic rats were pretreated with ERK inhibitor U0126 (U0126). Increased phospho-ERK1/2 immunoreactive neurons in the cingulate cortex and hippocampal CA3 were detected in CIN after ischemia and reperfusion. The numbers of phospho-ERK1/2-positive neurons were further increased significantly in CIH compared to the CIN. Pretreatment with U0126 in CIH rats significantly decreased ERK1/2 immunoreactive cells. Western blot analyses confirmed that phospho-ERK1/2 increased significantly after 30 min ischemia and reperfusion compared to non-ischemic controls in both the CIN and CIH groups. The increase of phospho-ERK1/2 was more prominent in the CIH than in the CIN group after 3 and 6 h of reperfusion. Treatment with U0126 significantly reduced phospho-ERK1/2 in the CIH group. The findings presented here suggest that ERK1/2 may play a role in mediating neuronal cells death under hyperglycemic condition. (c) 2005 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.
