    Notes: Abstract The objective of the present study was to determine if either of the two isoforms of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), PDGF-AA and PDGF-BB, exerts trophic effects in vitro on developing rat striatal neurons. Striatal neurons were identified using immunocytochemistry for dopamine- and adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate-regulated phosphoprotein with a molecular weight of 32 kilodalton (DARPP-32). In control cultures without PDGF, the mean number of DARPP-32-positive neurons decreased by 47% at days 3 to 5 in vitro. PDGF-BB, but not PDGF-AA, significantly increased the number of DARPP-32-positive neurons both at day 3 (by 42%) and day 5 (by 149%). Total cell number was similar in control and PDGF BB-treated cultures, suggesting that, in striatal cultures, the action of PDGF-BB is relatively specific for DARPP-32-positive neurons. The DARPP-32-positive neurons in PDGF-BB-treated cultures had longer neurites and larger soma areas than those in control and in PDGF-AA-treated cultures. Our data provide evidence that PDGF-BB exerts a trophic action on striatal DARPP-32-positive neurons in vitro by promoting cell survival and morphological differentiation, although a stimulatory effect on intraneuronal DARPP-32 levels also is possible. The findings raise the possibility that PDGF-BB might also be involved in the development and maintenance of striatal neurons in vivo, and could be used to counteract striatal degeneration in models of Huntington's disease.

    Notes: Summary The superior cervical ganglia (SCG) of newborn rats, which had been cultured as expiants for varying periods of time, were transplanted into the striatum of rats with unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesions of the nigrostriatal dopamine pathway to examine the survival and functional properties of the sympathetic neurons maintained in long-term culture prior to grafting. In the rats given the SCG cultured in vitro for 2 weeks, apomorphine-induced rotational behaviour was satisfactory reduced. The rats receiving the SCG from 4-week-old cultures showed only modest behavioural changes. The grafting of the SCG cultured for 6 weeks in vitro did not affect the rotational behaviour. These behavioural data corresponded with the histological assessment of the graft survival by use of catecholamine histofluorescence. The present results suggest the critical time period in vitro which might allow the cultured sympathetic neurons to be successfully grafted.

    Notes: Previous studies with single-unit recording and 2-[14C]deoxyglucose quantitative autoradiography have shown that systemic administration of apomorphine increases the functional activity of pallidal neurons, and that the enhancement in the globus pallidus (GP) activity is abolished by striatal lesions. The present study employing electrophysiological techniques tested whether embryonic striatal tissue implanted in the excitotoxically damaged striatum of rats may affect the lesion-induced alteration in the neuronal response of GP to apomorphine. Systemically administered apomorphine significantly increased spontaneously firing rates of GP cells. The blockade of dopamine receptors with haloperidol reversed the increased rate to baseline levels. Quinolinate-induced striatal lesions attenuated the rate-increasing effect of apomorphine. Embryonic striatal grafts placed in the lesioned striatum restored the response of GP cells to systemic apomorphine. The graft-mediated restoration of the GP neuron response to apomorphine were accompanied by an improvement in the motor asymmetry induced by this drug. Considering previous anatomical data to demonstrate extensive innervation of the GP by embryonic striatal grafts, the present results suggest that the grafts reconstruct the functional striatopallidal pathway which is capable of transmitting apomorphine-induced changes in the neuronal activity.
