A deficit in glucose uptake and a deposition of amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) each occur in vulnerable brain regions in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is not known whether mechanistic links exist between Aβ deposition and impaired glucose transport. We now report that Aβ impairs glucose transport in cultured rat hippocampal and cortical neurons by a mechanism involving membrane lipid peroxidation. Aβ impaired 3H-deoxy-glucose transport in a concentration-dependent manner and with a time course preceding neurodegeneration. The decrease in glucose transport was followed by a decrease in cellular ATP levels. Impairment of glucose transport, ATP depletion, and cell death were each prevented in cultures pretreated with antioxidants. Exposure to FeSO4, an established inducer of lipid peroxidation, also impaired glucose transport. Immunoprecipitation and Western blot analyses showed that exposure of cultures to Aβ induced conjugation of 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE), an aldehydic product of lipid peroxidation, to the neuronal glucose transport protein GLUT3. HNE induced a concentration-dependent impairment of glucose transport and subsequent ATP depletion. Impaired glucose transport was not caused by a decreased energy demand in the neurons, because ouabain, which inhibits Na+/K+-ATPase activity and thereby reduces neuronal ATP hydrolysis rate, had little or no effect on glucose transport. Collectively, the data demonstrate that lipid peroxidation mediates Aβ-induced impairment of glucose transport in neurons and suggest that this action of Aβ may contribute to decreased glucose uptake and neuronal degeneration in AD.

H 2 O 2 and free radical-mediated oxidative stresses have been implicated in mediating amyloid β(1-40) [Aβ(1-40)] neurotoxicity to cultured neurons. In this study, we confirm that addition of the H 2 O 2 -scavenging enzyme catalase protects neurons in culture against Aβ-mediated toxicity ; however, it does so by a mechanism that does not involve its ability to scavenge H 2 O 2 . Aβ-mediated elevation in intracellular H 2 O 2 production is suppressed by addition of a potent H 2 O 2 scavenger with...

Steroid hormones, particularly estrogens and glucocorticoids, may play roles in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, but their mechanisms of action are not known. We report that estrogens protect cultured hippocampal neurons against glutamate toxicity, glucose deprivation, FeSO 4 toxicity, and amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) toxicity. The toxicity of each insult was significantly attenuated in cultures pretreated for 2 h with 100 nM-10 μL 17β-estradiol, estriol, or progesterone. In contrast, ...

Abstract: Large numbers of neuritic plaques surrounded by reactive astrocytes are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD). There is a large body of research supporting a causal role for the amyloid β peptide (Aβ), a main constituent of these plaques, in the neuropathology of AD. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the toxicity of Aβ including free radical injury and excitotoxicity. It has been reported that treatment of neuronal/astrocytic cultures with Aβ increases the vulnerabi...

Abstract: Peroxidation of membrane lipids results in release of the aldehyde 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE), which is known to conjugate to specific amino acids of proteins and may alter their function. Because accumulating data indicate that free radicals mediate injury and death of neurons in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and because amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) can promote free radical production, we tested the hypothesis that HNE mediates Aβ25-35-induced disruption of neuronal ion homeostasis and cell death. A...

Removal of extracellular glutamate at synapses, by specific high-affinity glutamate transporters, is critical to prevent excitotoxic injury to neurons. Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of an array of prominent neurodegenerative conditions that involve degeneration of synapses and neurons in glutamatergic pathways including stroke, and Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases. Although cell culture data indicate that oxidative insults can impair key membrane regu...

Transgenic mice overexpressing the 695-amino acid isoform of human Alzheimer β-amyloid (Aβ) precursor protein containing a Lys670 → Asn, Met671 → Leu mutation had normal learning and memory in spatial reference and alternation tasks at 3 months of age but showed impairment by 9 to 10 months of age. A fivefold increase in Aβ(1–40) and a 14-fold increase in Aβ(1–42/43) accompanied the appearance of these behavioral deficits. Numerous Aβ plaques that stained with Congo red dye were present in corti...

Abstract A significant fraction of the β-amyloid precursor protein is proteolytically processed to yield large secreted forms (sAPP). These proteins have pleiotropic effects which potentially involve control of gene expression. We have investigated the influence of sAPP on the class of transcription factors which bind κB enhancer sequences. Transcription dependent on a κB element was enhanced by sAPP in several cell lines, as measured by expression of a transfected chloramphenicol acetyltransfer...

Increasing evidence indicates that glucocorticoids (GCs), produced in response to physical/emotional stressors, can exacerbate brain damage resulting from cerebral ischemia and severe seizure activity. However, much of the supporting evidence has come from studies employing nonphysiological paradigms in which adrenalectomized rats were compared with those exposed to constant GC concentrations in the upper physiological range. Cerebral ischemia and seizures can induce considerable GC secretion. W...

Abstract Cholinergic pathways serve important functions in learning and memory processes, and deficits in cholinergic transmission occur in Alzheimer disease (AD). A subset of muscarinic cholinergic receptors are linked to G-proteins that activate phospholipase C, resulting in the liberation of inositol trisphosphate and Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. We now report that amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta), which forms plaques in the brain in AD, impairs muscarinic receptor activation of G prot...

Although a consensus on the primary mechanism(s) of neuronal degeneration in AD has not yet been reached, several potential pathogenic mechanisms have emerged. The involvement of APP and Aβ in the neurodegenerative process and their relationship to the tau-related neurofibrillary pathology are central issues. The pathogenic mechanism associated with inheritance of the ApoE4 allele remains to be determined, although initial investigations implicate effects on Aβ or possibly tau. Increasing eviden...

Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressively neurodegenerative disorder, which seriously affects human health and cannot be stopped by current treatments. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a risk factor for AD. Our recent studies reported the neuroprotective effects of a GLP-1/GIP/Glucagon receptor triagonist (Triagonist), a novel unimolecular anti-diabetic drug, in cognitive and pathological improvements of 3xTg-AD mice. However, the detailed electrophysiological and molecular mechanis...

The transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) protein is a pain receptor that elicits a hot sensation when an organism eats the capsaicin of red chili peppers. This calcium (Ca2+)-permeable cation channel is mostly expressed in the peripheral nervous system sensory neurons but also in the central nervous system (e.g. hippocampus and cortex). Preclinical studies found that TRPV1 mediates behaviors associated with anxiety and depression. Loss of TRPV1 functionality increases expression of g...

Impaired mitochondrial function and aberrant neuronal network activity are believed to be early events in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer9s disease (AD), but how mitochondrial alterations contribute to aberrant activity in neuronal circuits is unknown. In this study, we examined the function of mitochondrial protein deacetylase sirtuin 3 (SIRT3) in the pathogenesis of AD. Compared to AppPs1 mice, Sirt3-haploinsufficient AppPs1 mice (Sirt3+/-AppPs1) exhibit early epileptiform EEG activity and Seizu...

Alzheimer’s (or Alzheimer) disease (AD) is the most prevalent subset of dementia, affecting elderly populations worldwide. The cumulative costs of the AD care are rapidly accelerating as the average lifespan increases. Onset and risk factors for AD and AD-like dementias have been largely unknown until recently. Studies show that chronic type II diabetes mellitus (DM) is closely associated with neurodegeneration, especially AD. Type II DM is characterized by the cells’ inability to take up insuli...

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder that can cause dementia in elderly over 60 years of age. One of the disease hallmarks is oxidative stress which interconnects with other processes such as amyloid-β deposition, tau hyperphosphorylation, and tangle formation. This review discusses current thoughts on molecular mechanisms that may relate oxidative stress to Alzheimer’s disease and identifies genetic factors observed from in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies that ...

Abstract Parkinson's disease (PD) is a movement disorder, and its common characteristics include the loss of dopaminergic neurons and the accumulation of a special type of cytoplasmic inclusions called Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra pars compacta, which are more prevalent in the elderly. However, the pathophysiology of PD is still elusive. In this review, we summarized five common factors involved in PD, namely, (i) oxidative stress, (ii) mitochondrial dysfunction, (iii) inflammation, (iv) ...

The pathogenesis of Alzheimer9s disease (AD) involves the central roles of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress due to Dicer1 depletion may underline the neurodegeneration in the central nervous system and degeneration of retinal pigment epithelial cells in geographic atrophy form of age-related macular degeneration. We hypothesized that Dicer1 may play roles in AD pathogenesis. Indeed, Dicer1 was reduced in the hippocampus and cortex of APPswe/PSEN1dE9 mice, an AD model. Dicer1 knockdown induced ...
