The neuronal-specific vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT2), responsible for uptake of dopamine into vesicles, has been shown to play a central role both in intracellular dopamine homeostasis andsequestration of dopaminergicneurotoxins.Direct or indirect enhancement of VMAT2 activity could therefore have neuroprotective effects by decreasing cytosolic dopamine levels. Here, we demonstrate that transfection of VMAT2 in the dopaminergic cell line, PC12, increases intracellular dopamine content, augments potassium-induced dopamine release and attenuates cell death induced by the cytosolic dopamine enhancer, methamphetamine, suggesting an enhancement in vesicular dopamine storage. In rat ventral mesencephalic cultures highly enriched for dopaminergic neurons, lentiviral delivery of recombinant VMAT2 usinganeuronal-specific promoter also resulted inelevated intracellular dopamine content and neurotransmitter release after depolarization. The opposite was seen after downregulation of VMAT2 using virally delivered shRNAs. Furthermore, using this VMAT2 knockdown model, we are the first to report a direct link between enhanced cytoplasmic dopamine levels, measured following mild permeabilization of the plasma membrane using digitonin, and neurite degeneration in primary dopaminergic neurons. In conclusion, our data support the hypothesis that an increase in vesicular sequestration of dopamine by modulation of VMAT2 activity could restore neuronal function and enhance dopaminergic cell survival in conditions of dysregulated dopamine homeostasis such as Parkinson's disease.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Lotharius, Julie</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Leist, Marcel</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Lotharius, Julie</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Vergo, Sandra</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Johansen, Jens Leander</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Vergo, Sandra</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Leist, Marcel</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Johansen, Jens Leander</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
