Neural crest cells (NCCs) migrate in a well-defined manner in different directions and give rise to peripheral neurons, melanocytes, cranial bones and other tissues. These processes can be disturbed by developmental toxicants. Aims: 1. Establish a medium throughput human-cell based system to test for interference of toxicants with NCC migration. 2. Apply this test system to test several polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Methods: NCCs were differentiated from human embryonic stem cells. To generate a defined migration target area, stoppers were inserted in culture dishes before cells were seeded. After removal of the stoppers, cells migrated inwards. Migration and cell viability were quantified after 48 h by high-content image analysis. Results: Time-lapse microscopy revealed that the cells migrate preferentially during 24 to 48 h after stopper removal. Therefore, toxicants were added only during that time period. Inhibitors of actin and microtubule function (cytochalasin D, taxol) inhibited NCC migration in a concentration-dependent manner without compromising cell viability. General cytotoxic compounds (etoposide, Triton X-100) and proliferation inhibitors (aphidicolin, cytosine arabinoside) were used to define assay specificity. Environmentally relevant PCBs (i.e. PCB138, 153, 170 and 180) reduced NCC migration very effectively at non-cytotoxic concentrations. Different PCB congeners could be assigned to three classes based on their efficacy; di-ortho-substituted PCBs were more effective than mono-ortho-substituted ones. Non-ortho-substituted, coplanar, PCBs did not inhibit NCC migration at concentrations ≤ 10 mM. Follow-up experiments revealed that PCBs inhibit NCC migration via a mechanism independent of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) and ryanodine receptor (RyR). Conclusions: The new human-cell based assay allows medium throughput screening and QSAR studies of environmental toxicants. Mechanisms related to PCB effects will be further explored.
