Abstract

The expression of alternatively spliced mRNAs for amyloid precursor protein (APP) isoforms and their translation products were examined in the rat cerebral cortex 1, 3, 6, and 12 h and 1, 3, and 7 days (n = 4-5 in each group) after fluid-percussion brain injury. In situ hybridization studies demonstrated that the expression of APP695 mRNA decreased in and around the damaged area of the cerebral cortex exposed to fluid-percussion injury 1 h after the insult. On the other hand, APP751/770 mRNAs were increased in the regions surrounding the damaged cortical areas 1 day after the injury. An increase of immunoreactive APP was detected in the regions around the damaged cortical areas 3 h after traumatic injury and maintained for the following 3 days. The APP immunoreactivity in the damaged cortices declined to the level of sham-operated animals by post-experimental day 7. Using an anti-amyloid β (Aβ) protein (17-24) antibody, no deposits of immunoreactive Aβ (17-24) were observed in any of the samples examined in these experiments. These results suggest that the induction of Kunitz-type protease inhibitor (KPI) domain-containing APP mRNAs and the increased accumulation of APP are involved in the physiological and neuropathological responses of brains under various neurodegenerative conditions, including head trauma.
