In the inner ear, the excitatory amino acid glutamate is a proposed neurotransmitter acting at the synapse between hair cells and afferent auditory neurons. Using cultures of 5-day-old rat auditory neurons, we show that the afferent auditory neuronal population can be divided, on the basis of its sensitivity to the neuronotoxic effect of glutamate and its analogs, in at least 3 subpopulations, one responding to N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), one responding to kainate and a third minor one unresponsive to NMDA, kainic acid and glutamate. No toxic effect of quisqualate is observed. The use of specific antagonists (kynurenate and 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (DAP-5) demonstrates the specificity of the receptors to the excitatory amino acids on the afferent auditory neurons. Afferent auditory neurons from adult rats can also be cultured and in these preparations only the large neurons are sensitive to glutamate, kainate and NMDA while the small neurons are not responsive, suggesting that a glutamatergic neurotransmission occurs only at this synapse between the inner hair cells and the large radial afferent auditory neurons. We also show that, in vitro, the organ of Corti releases, in response to an increased potassium concentration and in the presence of calcium, a toxic activity for the afferent auditory neurons that is antagonized by kynurenate and DAP-5. Pathophysiological implications are discussed. [less ▲]

Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) has been shown to have neuronotrophic effects on cultured neurons. Transforming growth factor beta (TGFss1) has been implicated in the modulation of cellular receptors for bFGF in several cell types. In this study, we show that TGFss1 is expressed in cultured adult mouse auditory neurons in response to explanation injury and acts in an autocrine fashion to increase the level of expression of bFGF receptors message in these same neurons. Based on these in-vitro results, we propose that these trophic factors (i.e. TGFss1 and bFGF) play a significant role in the response to injury by the mature auditory system. [less ▲]

Highly enriched cultures of Schwann cells were obtained from adult rat dorsal root ganglia and implanted (5 x 10(5) -9 x 10(5) cells) in the spinal cord of syngenic adult rats at the site of an acute compression lesion produced by a subdural inflatable microballoon. These autografts survived and invaded the host tissue, reducing central cavitation and astrocytic gliosis. They dramatically promoted ingrowth of axons, the majority of which appeared to come from the dorsal roots as judged by their neuropeptide content. Invasion of the transplants by descending, e.g. aminergic fibers, was negligible at survival times of up to 4 months. Nonetheless, autologous Schwann cells, which are readily available in the host, represent a promising material for grafts into the injured spinal cord. [less ▲]

In this work, we report the preliminary characterization and purification of astrostatine, a protein secreted by neuronal cells in culture and which inhibits type 1 astrocytes proliferation. This protein of a low molecular weight (14 kDa) is not active on glioma cell lines but is released by normal or tumoral neurons in culture. [less ▲]
