Rather than leading to a net cell loss, the toxicant is assumed to alter the differentiation and neuronal functions such as catecholaminergic transmission. We used neuronally differentiating murine embryonic stem cells (mESC) to explore such subtle toxicity. The mixed neuronal cultures that formed within 20 days contained a small subpopulation of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)–positive neurons with specific dopaminergic functions such as dopamine transport (DAT) activity. The last 6 days of differentiation were associated with the functional maturation of already preformed neuronal precursors. Exposure to MeHg during this period downregulated several neuronal transcripts, without affecting housekeeping genes or causing measurable cell loss. Profiling of mRNAs relevant for neurotransmitter systems showed that dopamine receptors were coordinately downregulated, whereas known counterregulatory systems such as galanin receptor 2 were upregulated. The chronic (6 days) exposure to MeHg, but not shorter incubation periods, attenuated the expression levels of endogenous neurotrophic factors required for the maturation of TH cells. Accordingly, the size of this cell population was diminished, and DAT activity as its signature function was lost. When mixed lineage kinase activity was blocked during MeHg exposure, DAT activity was restored, and the reduction of TH levels was prevented. Thus, transcriptional profiling in differentiating mESC identified a subpopulation of neurons affected by MeHg, and a pharmacological intervention was identified that specifically protected these cells.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/16732/2/Toxicol.%20Sci.-2011-Zimmer-357-67.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Tanavde, Vivek</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kügler, Philipp</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Tanavde, Vivek</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-11-11T10:25:18Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Kadereit, Suzanne</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Schildknecht, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Leist, Marcel</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Sensitivity of dopaminergic neuron differentiation from stem cells to chronic low-dose methylmercury exposure</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Schildknecht, Stefan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zimmer, Bastian</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2011-06</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Zimmer, Bastian</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Journal of Toxicological Sciences ; 121 (2011), 2. - pp. 357-367</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/16732"/> <dc:contributor>Leist, Marcel</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
