, 第97回日本薬理学会年会, 2023.12, 【Background】 Brain amyloid beta is accumulated from 20 years before Alzheimer's disease (AD) onset, and microglia is implicated in promoting AD pathogenesis. LPS from P. gingivalis (PgLPS), the periodontal bacteria, is detected in AD brain. 【Aim】 In this study, we test our hypothesis that PgLPS enhances microglia-mediated neuroinflammtion in amyloid beta exposure environment.【Methods & Results】 MG6 microglial cells were exposed to PgLPS (0.1 micro g/mL), amyloid beta (0.1micro M) or co-exposed to amyloid beta and PgLPS. Inflammatory mediators and NFkB signaling were examined. In comparison to control MG6 cells, mRNA expressions of TNF-α, IL-1beta and IL-6 were induced from 1 h after exposure to PgLPS but not amyloid beta. Interestingly, mRNA expressions of TNF-α, IL-1beta and IL-6 were significantly increased in amyloid beta and PgLPS co-exposed (AL) MG6 cells from 3 h in compassion to those in PgLPS-exposed cells. TNF-α production were significantly elevated in AL-exposed MG6 cells from 3 h in compassion to that in PgLPS-exposed ones. Furthermore, phosphorylation of IκB and nuclear translocation of p65 NF-κB were up-regulated in PgLPS-exposed MG6 cells but not that in amyloid beta-exposed cells. Phosphorylation of IκB and nuclear translocation of p65 NF-κB were significantly up-regulated in AL-exposed MG6 cells in compassion to that in PgLPS-exposed cells. 【Conclusion】 The observations strongly suggest that PgLPS enhances microglia-related neuroinflammtion in amyloid beta exposure environment. The present study provides a new mechanism of periodontitis involving in the early pathologies of AD. .
