Abstract

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are supposed to play an important role in hypoxia- and ischemia/reperfusion-mediated neuronal injury with the characteristics of apoptosis, There are many reports showing that cobalt chloride (CoCl2,) could mimic the hypoxic responses in some aspects including production of ROS in cultured cells. The cytotoxicity of CoCl2 and its molecular mechanisms have yet to be elucidated. We report that CoCl2 triggered neuronalPC12 cells apoptosis in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Apoptosis was demonstrated by morphological changes and DNA fragmentation, and was dependent on macromolecular synthesis. Apoptosis was also confirmed by the decrease of the expression of Bcl-X-L, To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of the apoptotic induction of CoCl2 on PC12 cells. Furthermore, ROS production in PC12 cells was increased during CoCl2 treatment. Antioxidants, which could inhibit ROS production, significantly blocked CoCl2-induced apoptosis, suggesting that apoptosis is mediated by ROS production. We also observed a significant increase of the DNA-binding activity of AP-1 in response to CoCl2 and this increase was blocked by antioxidants, showing that CoCl2-induced apoptosis is accompanied by ROS-activated AP-1, CoCl2-treated PC12 cells may serve as an in vitro model for studies of molecular mechanisms in ROS-linked neuronal disorders.
