Estudo dos receptores purinérgicos em células gliais do glânglio da raiz dorsal.

Abstract in Portuguese
Receptores purinérgicos são expressos em neurônios e glia e, por certo, participam dos processos de sinalização entre estes células. Nos gânglios da raiz dorsal o soma dos neurônios sensoriais é envolto por uma camada de células satélites (CSt), que são células de glia, cuja função é desconhecida. Até o momento a natureza dos receptores purinérgicos presentes nas células satélites foi pouco investigada. No presente trabalho demonstra-se a presença dos receptores P2Y1, P2Y2 e/ou P2Y4 e P2Y6 nas CSt de gânglios da raiz dorsal de ratos recém-nascidos. A prova da existência dos receptores foi a elevação na concentração intracelular do Ca2+, induzida pela aplicação de um agonista dos receptores. Nas culturas de mais de 24 horas, estimuladas por soro bovino fetal, proliferam de forma notável células de glia de aspecto predominantemente fusiforme. Determinou-se que as células fusiformes expressam receptores P2Y1, P2Y2 e/ou P2Y4 e P2Y6. As informações obtidas contribuem para o esclarecimento da sinalização entre neurônios e glia nos gânglios sensoriais da raiz dorsal.

Abstract in English
Purinergic receptors are expressed and play role in the sinalization between neurons and glia. In dorsal root ganglia the soma of the sensory neurons is surrounded by a layer of satellite glial cells, whose function is unclear. There are evidences that ATP is released by neurons to act on receptors in satellite cells. So far, the nature of the purinergic receptors of satellite cells was not fully investigated. This study shows the presence of metabotropics purinergic receptors P2Y1, P2Y2 and/or P2Y4, e P2Y6 in satellite cells from dorsal root ganglia of newborn rats. The demonstration was carried on following the transient increases in intracellular calcium concentration induced by a purinergic agonist. As time goes by, in the presence of fetal bovine serum, there is a remarkable proliferation of glial cells, with predominant fusiform shapes. The fusiform cells also express P2Y1, P2Y2 and/or P2Y4, e P2Y6 receptors. These informations add on the understanding of the complex phenomena of neuron-glia interaction.
