Abstract

PC12 cells undergo apoptosis as well as necrosis following exposure to hypoxia. Following a 6-h hypoxic treatment, a time-dependent increase in intracellular ceramide level was observed with a concurrent decrease in sphingomyelin. It was also shown that the hypoxia-induced ceramide accumulation resulted from activation of neutral magnesium-dependent sphingomyelinase. Comparative kinetic analyses of the neutral sphingomyelinase in the cells under normoxia and hypoxia showed that hypoxia increased V-max but did not affect K-m of the enzyme. In PC12 cells overexpressing Bcl-2 which show strong resistance to hypoxia, sphingomyelin hydrolysis was decreased and activation of neutral sphingomyelinase was reduced. Addition of exogenous C-2-ceramide induced cell deathand activated caspase-3 as markedly as the hypoxia treatment. On the other hand, in PC12 cells overexpressing Bcl-2, significant decreases in cell death and inhibition of caspase-3 activation were observed after exogenous addition of C, ceramide. The inhibitors of caspase-3 prevented cell death by either hypoxia or C-2-ceramide. These results suggest that ceramide generated by activation of neutral magnesium-dependent sphingomyelinase mediates hypoxic cell death and that Bcl-2 has inhibitory effects on ceramide formation and caspase activation.
