To understand the mechanism responsible for the paroxetine mediated ARQ 197 ic50 inhibition on LPS induced NO production, we analyzed the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase following LPS stimulation. Paroxetine alone did not change iNOS level, while LPS treatment significantly up regulated iNOS expression. In line with the changes in NO production, pretreatment with paroxetine led to a dose dependent suppression on LPS induced iNOS expression by 2. 9% at 0. 1 uM, 12. 0% at 0. 2 uM, 28. 4% at 1 uM, and 61. 4% at 5 uM. Paroxetine blocks LPS induced JNK activation and attenuates baseline ERK1 2 activity in BV2 cells A number of studies have demonstrated that NF κB and MAPKs have important roles in modulating the expression of pro inflammatory cytokines and iNOS in LPS stimulated microglia.

Therefore, we investigated purchase AZD1152-HQPA the effect of paroxetine on the activity of p38, JNK, ERK1 2, and p65 NF κB in BV2 cells following LPS stimulation. Paroxetine alone did not have any effect on the activation of these kinases except ERK1 2 which displayed a drastic drop in baseline phosphorylation upon 5 uM of paroxetine treatment. Interestingly, LPS stimulation did not elicit activation of ERK1 2 but indeed induced marked activation of JNK1 2, p38, and p65 NF κB in a time dependent manner. The peak of activation for each kinase varied, such as p38 peaked at 30 minutes post LPS stimulation, JNK1 2 and p65 peaked at one hour. Pretreatment with paroxetine in BV2 cells markedly blocked LPS induced JNK1 2 activation, but showed little influence on the activation of p38 and p65 kinases.

Paroxetine inhibits LPS induced microglial activation through JNK and ERK pathways Since paroxetine inhibited LPS induced JNK activation as well as baseline ERK1 2 activity, we then asked whether the inhibitory effect of paroxetine on microglial activation 価格 AMN-107 is via JNK and ERK pathways. We investigated the effect of specific JNK inhibitor SP600125 and specific ERK1 2 inhibitor U0126 on LPS induced NO production and pro inflammatory cytokines in BV2 cells. SP600125 and U0126 were firstly verified for their abilities to block JNK1 2 and ERK1 2 activation, respectively, in BV2 cells. Pretreatment with SP600125 significantly suppressed LPS induced NO production by 82. 3%. In contrast, U0126 showed no effect on the NO production. In line with the regulation on NO production, LPS induced iNOS expression was blocked by SP600125, but not by U0126.

On the other hand, both SP600125 and U0126 blunted LPS induced cytokine up regulation. SP600125 pretreatment resulted in a significant reduction by 12. 1% and 33. 5%, respectively, on LPS induced TNF and IL 1B mRNA expression, while U0126 reduced the elevation of these two cytokines by 13. 6% and 40. 6%, respectively. Similar to paroxetine, SP600125 and U0126 also reduced the basal mRNA expression of TNF in BV2 cells. Paroxetine relieves microglia mediated neurotoxicity Microglia upon activation could induce neuronal cell degeneration by releasing inflammatory mediators and cytokines. We therefore investigated whether paroxetine contributes to the relief of activated microglia induced neurotoxicity. The neuroblastoma cell line SH SY5Y is often used in the cellular model of PD due to its dopaminergic ability.
