Abstract in Portuguese
Embora os glicocorticoides (GCs) sejam os anti-inflamatórios mais prescritos mundialmente, níveis elevados de GCs potencializam alguns aspectos da resposta inflamatória em regiões do encéfalo de ratos, dependentes da ativação dos receptores GR. Neste estudo visamos avaliar os efeitos dos glicocorticoides em alguns aspectos da resposta inflamatória induzida por LPS nas populações de células (neurônio, micróglia e astrócitos) primárias de córtex frontal derivadas de ratos Wistar neonatos. Através de ensaios EMSA e imunofluorescência, avaliamos indicativos da ativação do fator NFKB em culturas mistas e enriquecidas expostas ao pré-tratamento com CORT, seguido do estímulo inflamatório LPS. Verificamos que a CORT não exerceu sua clássica atividade anti-inflamatória, pois não foi capaz de diminuir a ativação do NFKB induzida pelo LPS nas culturas mistas, sugerindo ser parcialmente dependente da ativação de GR, concentração dos GCs e interações celulares, já que os astrócitos em culturas mistas exibem respostas diferentes quanto ao NFKB, mas a microglia e neurônios não.

Abstract in English
Although glucocorticoids (GCs) are the most commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory worldwide, high levels of GCs enhance some aspects of the inflammatory response in brain regions of rats, dependent on activation of GR. In this study, we aim to evaluate the effects of glucocorticoids in some aspects of the inflammatory response LPS-induced in populations of cells (neurons, astrocytes, and microglia) in primary frontal cortex derived from newborn rats. Through EMSA and immunofluorescence assays, we evaluated the indicative factor NFKB activation in mixed and enriched cultures exposed to pretreatment with CORT, followed by the LPS inflammatory stimulus. We found that CORT did not exerted its classic anti-inflammatory activity, whereas it was not able to decrease the activation of NFKB LPS-induced in mixed cultures, suggesting be partially dependent on the GR activation, GCs concentration and cellular interactions, since astrocytes in mixed cultures exhibit different responses relative to NFKB, but neurons and microglia did not.
