Hypothermia augments stress response in mammalian cells.

Summary of "Hypothermia augments stress response in mammalian cells."

Mild hypothermia (32°C) is routinely used in medical practice to alleviate hypoxic ischemic damage, however, the mechanisms that underlie its protective effects remain uncertain. Using a systems approach based on genome-wide expression screens, reporter assays and biochemical studies, we find that cellular hypothermia response is associated with the augmentation of major stress-inducible transcription factors Nrf2 and HIF1Α affecting the antioxidant system and hypoxia response pathways, respectively. At the same time, NF-κB, a transcription factor involved in the control of immune and inflammatory responses, was not induced by hypothermia. Furthermore, mild hypothermia did not trigger unfolded protein response. Lower temperatures (27°C and 22°C) did not activate Nrf2 and HIF1A pathways as efficiently as mild hypothermia. Current findings are discussed in the context of the thermodynamic hypothesis of therapeutic hypothermia. We argue that the therapeutic effects are likely to stem both from metabolic suppression (inhibitory component) and augmentation of stress tolerance (activating component). We argue that systems coping with cellular stressors are plausible targets of therapeutic hypothermia and deserve more attention in clinical hypothermia research.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.

Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.

A heterogeneous, immature population of myeloid cells that can suppress the activity of T-CELLS and NATURAL KILLER CELLS in the INNATE IMMUNE RESPONSE and ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE. They play important roles in ONCOGENESIS; INFLAMMATION; and INFECTION.

Mammalian pigment cells that produce MELANINS, pigments found mainly in the EPIDERMIS, but also in the eyes and the hair, by a process called melanogenesis. Coloration can be altered by the number of melanocytes or the amount of pigment produced and stored in the organelles called MELANOSOMES. The large non-mammalian melanin-containing cells are called MELANOPHORES.

A protein-serine-threonine kinase that is activated by PHOSPHORYLATION in response to GROWTH FACTORS or INSULIN. It plays a major role in cell metabolism, growth, and survival as a core component of SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION. Three isoforms have been described in mammalian cells.
