    Abstract: 海馬迴不僅在學習與記憶中扮演重要的角色,在許多神經退化性疾病中亦佔有重要的地位。海馬迴的齒迴內側區是哺乳動物大腦中成體幹細胞主要來源區域之一,其所新生的海馬迴粒細胞會往上遷移至海馬迴粒細胞層並與固有神經細胞形成功能性連結。
    壓力荷爾蒙(包含皮質固醇,在老鼠稱為corticosterone,在人類稱為cortisol)為腎上腺皮質分泌激素,已知會參與並調控BK 離子通道的選擇性剪接。BK離子通道的孔道形成α次單元由單一基因 (Slo) 負責轉錄,含有STREX外顯子的剪接變異體之α次單元藉由加速神經細胞的再極化,增強過極化電位以及促進鈉離子通道自去活化狀態中回復可造成神經細胞重複激發,而先前的研究已發現過度的激發會對神經細胞產生興奮性毒殺作用。本實驗即探討BK 鉀離子通道選擇性剪接在海馬迴粒細胞凋亡的過程中所扮演的角色。 實驗結果發現,與對照組相比,雙側腎上腺摘除的老鼠海馬迴細胞中含有STREX外顯子的剪接變異體在mRNA含量上確實有改變,而BK 鉀離子通道蛋白質含量亦有所變化。由上述結果推測,含有STREX外顯子的剪接變異體含量可能與海馬迴粒細胞的凋亡機制有關。
    The hippocampus is a brain region central to learning and memory and is a key target of many neurological diseases that have dramatic cognitive consequences, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, stroke, epilepsy, and chronic stress. Hippocampal granule cells are one of the two cell pools that contain newborn neurons continuously generated from the subgranular zone in adult mammalian brains. The newborn neurons will migrate to the granule cell layer and integrate into preexisting neuron network. Previous studies have indicated that both an excessive and insufficient levels of stress hormones can lead to neuron death. Corticosterone, an adrenal stress hormone, is essential for the survival of granule cells. Bilateral removal of adrenal glands leads to extensive granule cell death over a period of several weeks and gradually causes cognitive deficits. To understand the mechanisms underlying the granule cell death in the hippocampal formation, adrenalectomy (ADX, removal of adrenal glands) was used to specifically eliminate granule cells in the hippocampus, and the subsequent physiological changes in the hippocampal neurons including dentate granule cells are investigated.

    Stress hormones (corticosterone in rats and cortisol in human) , secreted from the adrenal cortex regulate the alternative splicing of BK channels (big potassium, calcium-voltage activated potassium channels) in adrenal medulla. An inclusion of STREX (stress axis-regulated exon) exon in pore-forming α subunit encoded by Slo gene promotes repetitive firing by speeding action potential repolarization and augmenting the afterhyperpolarization, as well as facilitating sodium channels de-inactivation. In the present study, the role of BK channel alternative splicing in the ADX-induced granule cell death in the hippocampus was explored. The results indicate that BK channel alternative splicing was regulated by stress hormones in the hippocampus including dentate gyrus. The expression patterns of STREX variant in hippocampus were altered after granule cells death induced by ADX, whilst the expression of total slo gene was changes only in translational level. These observations suggest that the alternation in STREX abundance might be involved in the induction of dentate granule cell death.
