AbstractIntroduction The natural product tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) has a variety of biologic activities, including neuroprotection. Nitrones are powerful free radical scavengers. We have designed and synthesized a TMP derivative, TN-2, which is armed with two nitrone moieties. Aims In this study, we investigated the neuroprotective effect of TN-2 against 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced neurotoxicity in vitro and in zebrafish. Methods PC12 cells, zebrafish and rats were exposed to 6-OHDA challenge. MTT assay, LDH release, Hoechst staining, DAF-FM staining, luciferase reporter construct transfection, and western blotting were applied to detect cell viability, apoptosis, intracellular nitric oxide (NO), NF-κB transcriptional activity and proteins expression. In zebrafish, whole-mount staining and real-time PCR were performed to quantify dopaminergic neurons and mRNA expression. Hematoxylin and eosin staining and immunohistochemistry for glial fibrillary acidic protein were used to detect the astrocyte activation in the unilateral 6-OHDA rat model. Results TN-2 but not TMP exhibited potent neuroprotective effect against 6-OHDA-induced apoptosis in PC12 cells. Moreover, TN-2 prevented dopaminergic neuron loss and suppressed mRNA expression of pro-inflammatory genes, including IL-1β, TNF-α and COX-2, in 6-OHDA-treated zebrafish. TN-2 remarkably attenuated microglial/astrocyte activation in the unilateral 6-OHDA rat model. The mechanistic study demonstrated that TN-2 inhibited over-production of intracellular NO and protein expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase through down-regulating NF-κB activity. Additionally, the PKCα/PI3-K/Akt pathway was also involved in the neuroprotection of TN-2. Conclusion These results suggest that TN-2 protected against 6-OHDA-induced neurotoxicity via modulating the NF-κB-medicated neuroinflammation and PKCα/PI3-K/Akt pathways. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
