Human Endogenous Metabolite



MicMicroglial cell cultures under hyperoxia are supplemented or not with an effective dose of Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) (100 μM). Exposure of microglial cells to hyperoxia-induced oxidative stress for 24 h reveals a robust increase in TSP-1 mRNA expression and protein compare to normoxia (21% O2). Tetrahydrobiopterin supplementation significantly prevents hyperoxia-induced microglial activation by diminishing Iba-1 and TSP-1 expression and prevents microvascular injury in choroidal explants[1].

To assess the levels of Tetrahydrobiopterin in the retina, three to five pools of retinas are collected from WT and hph-1mice at postnatal age 7, 14, and 22 and evaluated by LC-MS/MS. LC-MS/MS analysis confirm a significant decrease by approximately 90% in the concentration levels of Tetrahydrobiopterin in retinal tissue from hph-1 mice (0.0009±0.0006; p<0.0001, 0.01±0.001; p<0.0001 and 2.45±0.40; p<0.005) compare to the WT group (0.014±0.001, 0.092±0.01, and 23.13±6.44) at P7, P14, and P22, respectively[1].

Microglia cell line (SIM-A9) is used and cultured. Briefly, microglial cells (800, 000 cells per well) are cultured in 6-well plates with DMEM/F12 (1:1) supplementing with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS), 5% of horse serum (HS), and 1% penicillin/streptomycin. After 24 h, the cells are starved with DMEM/F12 (1:1) free of FBS and HS for 6 h. Then, microglial cells cultures in presence or absence of 100 μM of Tetrahydrobiopterin are exposed to hyperoxia (75% oxygen and 25% nitrogen) in a modular incubator chamber and maintained in a humidified CO2 incubator at 37 °C for 24 h. Microglial cells in matching controls are incubated at 37 °C in an incubator with 95% air and 5% CO2 and collected at the same time point. Cell lysates are quickly processed for RNA. The conditioning media is stored at -80 and later used in choroidal explant assay[1].

Mice pups are exposed with their mothers in a 75% oxygen environment from postnatal day 7 to P9 using oxycycler to induce retinal vaso-obliteration (VO). Animals are anesthetized and injected intravitreally at P7 with 100 μM of Tetrahydrobiopterin or vehicle (sterile PBS 1×) using a syringe equipped with 50-gauge glass capillary. At P9, mice pups are sacrificed and retinas are dissected and stained overnight at 4 °C with fluorescein-labeled Griffonia Simplicifolia Lectin 1 (GSL 1), isolectin B4 (1:100) with 1 mM CaCl2 in PBS. Quantification of VO is assessed using the computer software[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
