  • Non-neurological surgery results in a neurochemical stress response.

    • There is a paucity of studies assessing changes in measures of human neurotransmission during stressful events, such as surgery. Thirty-five patients without any neurological disorders undergoing knee replacements with spinal bupivacaine anaesthesia and propofol sedation had cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drawn from a spinal catheter before, three hours after and the morning after surgery. The CSF concentrations of the dopamine metabolite homovanillinic acid (HVA) and the serotonin metabolite 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), which are related to the activity of the dopaminergic and serotonergic systems of the brain, increased sharply during surgery and reached 188% and 166% of their initial concentrations on the morning after the intervention (p < 0.0001). The CSF concentrations of the norepinephrine metabolite 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglucol (MHPG) increased modestly (non-significantly) during and after surgery. The HVA/5-HIAA ratios initially increased but returned to the initial level during the night after surgery. We conclude that non-neurological surgery, in this case to the lower limb, is accompanied by a marked central nervous stress response in spite of a spinal blockade.

  • An online nano-LC-ESI-FTICR-MS method for comprehensive characterization of endogenous fragments from amyloid β and amyloid precursor protein in human and cat cerebrospinal fluid.
  • 2012

    • Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is the precursor protein to amyloid β (Aβ), the main constituent of senile plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Endogenous Aβ peptides reflect the APP processing, and greater knowledge of different APP degradation pathways is important to understand the mechanism underlying AD pathology. When one analyzes longer Aβ peptides by low-energy collision-induced dissociation tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), mainly long b-fragments are observed, limiting the possibility to determine variations such as amino acid variants or post-translational modifications (PTMs) within the N-terminal half of the peptide. However, by using electron capture dissociation (ECD), we obtained a more comprehensive sequence coverage for several APP/Aβ peptide species, thus enabling a deeper characterization of possible variants and PTMs. Abnormal APP/Aβ processing has also been described in the lysosomal storage disease Niemann-Pick type C and the major large animal used for studying this disease is cat. By ECD MS/MS, a substitution of Asp7 → Glu in cat Aβ was identified. Further, sialylated core 1 like O-glycans at Tyr10, recently discovered in human Aβ (a previously unknown glycosylation type), were identified also in cat cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). It is therefore likely that this unusual type of glycosylation is common for (at least) species belonging to the magnorder Boreoeutheria. We here describe a detailed characterization of endogenous APP/Aβ peptide species in CSF by using an online top-down MS-based method.

  • Platelet Monoamine Oxidase B Activity Did Not Predict Destructive Personality Traits or Violent Recidivism: A Prospective Study in Male Forensic Psychiatric Examinees.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Neuropsychobiology. - 1423-0224. ; 61:2, s. 87-96
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aims: This prospective study was designed to replicate previous findings of an association between the platelet monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) activity and factors of relevance for criminal behaviour in a well-documented clinical study population. Methods: Subjects (n = 77, aged 17-76 years, median 30 years) were recruited among consecutive perpetrators of severe interpersonal violent and/or sexual crimes referred to forensic psychiatric investigation. Participants were extensively investigated by structured psychiatric, psychological and social workups, including state-of-the-art rating instruments and official records, and with laboratory tests including venous blood sampling for determination of MAO-B activity. A subset of 36 individuals had lumbar punctures to measure cerebrospinal fluid concentrations of monoamine neurotransmitter metabolites. Results: Platelet MAO-B activity did not show any significant correlation with assessments of childhood behavioural disorders, substance abuse, or psychosocial adversity, nor with any crime-related factors, such as scores on the Life History of Aggression Scale, the Psychopathy Checklist or recidivistic violent crime. No significant correlation was found between MAO-B and any of the monoamine metabolites. Analyses in subgroups of smokers/non-smokers did not change this overall result. Conclusions: The findings of the present study did not support the use of MAO-B as a biological marker for aggression-related personality traits or as a predictor for violent recidivism among violent offenders.

  • Amyloid-β metabolism in Niemann-Pick C disease models and patients.
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Metabolic brain disease. - 1573-7365. ; 27:4, s. 573-85
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Niemann-Pick type C (NPC) is a progressive neurodegenerative lysosomal disease with altered cellular lipid trafficking. The metabolism of amyloid-β (Aβ) - previously mainly studied in Alzheimer's disease - has been suggested to be altered in NPC. Here we aimed to perform a detailed characterization of metabolic products from the amyloid precursor protein (APP) in NPC models and patients. We used multiple analytical technologies, including immunoassays and immunoprecipitation followed by mass spectrometry (IP-MS) to characterize Aβ peptides and soluble APP fragments (sAPP-α/β) in cell media from pharmacologically (U18666A) and genetically (NPC1 ( -/- ) ) induced NPC cell models, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from NPC cats and human patients. The pattern of Aβ peptides and sAPP-α/β fragments in cell media was differently affected by NPC-phenotype induced by U18666A treatment and by NPC1 ( -/- ) genotype. U18666A treatment increased the secreted media levels of sAPP-α, AβX-40 and AβX-42 and reduced the levels of sAPP-β, Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42, while IP-MS showed increased relative levels of Aβ5-38 and Aβ5-40 in response to treatment. NPC1 ( -/- ) cells had reduced media levels of sAPP-α and Aβ1-16, and increased levels of sAPP-β. NPC cats had altered CSF distribution of Aβ peptides compared with normal cats. Cats treated with the potential disease-modifying compound 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin had increased relative levels of short Aβ peptides including Aβ1-16 compared with untreated cats. NPC patients receiving β-cyclodextrin had reduced levels over time of CSF Aβ1-42, AβX-38, AβX-40, AβX-42 and sAPP-β, as well as reduced levels of the axonal damage markers tau and phosphorylated tau. We conclude that NPC models have altered Aβ metabolism, but with differences across experimental systems, suggesting that NPC1-loss of function, such as in NPC1 ( -/- ) cells, or NPC1-dysfunction, seen in NPC patients and cats as well as in U18666A-treated cells, may cause subtle but different effects on APP degradation pathways. The preliminary findings from NPC cats suggest that treatment with cyclodextrin may have an impact on APP processing pathways. CSF Aβ, sAPP and tau biomarkers were dynamically altered over time in human NPC patients.

  • Cerebrospinal fluid microglial markers in Alzheimer's disease: elevated chitotriosidase activity but lack of diagnostic utility.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Neuromolecular medicine. - 1559-1174. ; 13:2, s. 151-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Activated microglial cells, which are the resident macrophages of the central nervous system, surround amyloid beta-plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. Inflammation including microglial activation may contribute in AD pathogenesis, and biomarkers for this process may thus be of value to study AD pathogenesis and might facilitate development of therapies targeting these cells. We therefore examined cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers in patients with AD, other dementias, mild cognitive impairment and in healthy controls. Samples were analyzed for markers with known association to macrophage activity, including chitotriosidase, YKL-40 (CHI3L1, HC gp-39) and chemokine CC motif ligand 2 (CCL2, MCP1). Patients with AD had higher chitotriosidase activity than controls and patients with stable mild cognitive impairment, consistent with the presence of activated microglial cells in AD brains, but with large overlaps between groups. CCL2 and YKL-40 concentrations did not differ among groups. Microglial markers are unlikely to be useful for AD diagnosis, but might be useful for identification of distinct subgroups of patients, and for the development and implementation of drugs targeting microglial pathology.

  • Elevated cerebrospinal fluid levels of prostaglandin E2 and 15-(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid in multiple sclerosis.
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Journal of internal medicine. - 1365-2796. ; 265:4, s. 459-64
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that the arachodinic acid metabolites prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and 15-(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15(S)-HETE) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are elevated and reflect neuroinflammation and degenerative changes in multiple sclerosis (MS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We measured PGE2 and 15(S)-HETE concentrations, as well as markers of axonal and astroglial injury in CSF from 46 MS patients, 46 healthy siblings and 50 controls. RESULTS: We found elevated levels of both PGE2 and 15(S)-HETE in MS compared with the control and sibling groups. Siblings had lower PGE2 levels and higher 15(S)-HETE levels than controls. There were no correlations between either PGE2 or 15(S)-HETE and clinical scores of MS severity or biochemical markers of axonal or astroglial injury. CONCLUSION: These data suggest no direct involvement of PGE2 and 15(S)-HETE in the MS disease process. Rather, the elevated levels reflect a general up-regulation of arachidonic acid metabolism and neuroinflammation.

  • {gamma}-Secretase-dependent amyloid-{beta} is increased in Niemann-Pick type C: A cross-sectional study.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Neurology. - 0028-3878. ; 76:4, s. 366-72
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) is an inherited disorder characterized by intracellular accumulation of lipids such as cholesterol and glycosphingolipids in endosomes and lysosomes. This accumulation induces progressive degeneration of the nervous system. NPC shows some intriguing similarities with Alzheimer disease (AD), including neurofibrillary tangles, but patients with NPC generally lack amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques. Lipids affect γ-secretase-dependent amyloid precursor protein (APP) metabolism that generates Aβ in vitro, but this has been difficult to prove in vivo. Our aim was to assess the effect of altered lipid constituents in neuronal membranes on amyloidogenic APP processing in humans. METHODS: We examined Aβ in CSF from patients with NPC (n = 38) and controls (n = 14). CSF was analyzed for Aβ(38), Aβ(40), Aβ(42), α-cleaved soluble APP, β-cleaved soluble APP, total-tau, and phospho-tau. RESULTS: Aβ release was markedly increased in NPC, with a shift toward the Aβ(42) isoform. Levels of α- and β-cleaved soluble APP were similar in patients and controls. Patients with NPC had increased total-tau. Patients on treatment with miglustat (n = 18), a glucosylceramide synthase blocker, had lower Aβ(42) and total-tau than untreated patients. CONCLUSION: Increased CSF levels of Aβ(38), Aβ(40), and Aβ(42) and unaltered levels of β-cleaved soluble APP are consistent with increased γ-secretase-dependent Aβ release in the brains of patients with NPC. These results provide the first in vivo evidence that neuronal lipid accumulation facilitates γ-secretase-dependent Aβ production in humans and may be of relevance to AD pathogenesis.

  • Miglustat treatment may reduce cerebrospinal fluid levels of the axonal degeneration marker tau in niemann-pick type C.
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: JIMD reports. - 2192-8304. ; 3, s. 45-52
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Introduction: Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) is a lysosomal storage disorder that leads to progressive neurodegeneration. The glucosylceramide synthase blocker miglustat is being used to treat NPC, but monitoring of disease progression and treatment response is difficult. NPC patients have elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of total-tau (T-tau) indicating axonal degeneration, and increased CSF amyloid β (Aβ) indicating abnormal brain amyloid metabolism, but it is unknown if start of miglustat treatment affects these biomarker levels. Methods: Biomarkers were measured in serial CSF samples from NPC patients who started miglustat between samplings (N=5), were untreated at both samplings (N=5) or received treatment during the whole study (N=6) (median time between samplings 309 days [range 175-644]). CSF was analyzed for Aβ(38), Aβ(40), Aβ(42), α-cleaved soluble APP, β-cleaved soluble APP, T-tau and phospho-tau. Results: T-tau levels decreased in patients who started miglustat treatment (median 955 [range 338-1,271]ng/L at baseline vs. 382 [187-736]ng/L at follow-up, p=0.043). Untreated patients and continuously treated patients had stable levels (p>0.05). No changes were seen in the other biomarkers. Conclusion: Reduced CSF T-tau suggests that miglustat treatment might affect axonal degeneration in NPC. However, the results must be interpreted with caution and verified in future studies, since this pilot study was small, treatment was not randomized, and patients starting treatment had higher baseline CSF T-tau than untreated patients.

  • Structural membrane alterations in Alzheimer brains found to be associated with regional disease development; increased density of gangliosides GM1 and GM2 and loss of cholesterol in detergent-resistant membrane domains
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: J Neurochem. - 0022-3042. ; 92:1, s. 171-82
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The formation of neurotoxic beta-amyloid fibrils in Alzheimer's disease (AD) is suggested to involve membrane rafts and to be promoted, in vitro, by enriched concentrations of gangliosides, particularly GM1, and the cholesterol therein. In our study, the presence of rafts and their content of the major membrane lipids and gangliosides in the temporal cortex, reflecting late stages of AD pathology, and the frontal cortex, presenting earlier stages, has been investigated. Whole tissue and isolated detergent-resistant membrane fractions (DRMs) were analysed from 10 AD and 10 age-matched control autopsy brains. DRMs from the frontal cortex of AD brains contained a significantly higher concentration (micromol/micromol glycerophospholipids), of ganglioside GM1 (22.3 +/- 4.6 compared to 10.3 +/- 6.4, p <0.001) and GM2 (2.5 +/- 1.0 compared to 0.55 +/- 0.3, p <0.001). Similar increases of these gangliosides were also seen in DRMs from the temporal cortex of AD brains, which, in addition, comprised significantly lower proportions of DRMs. Moreover, these remaining rafts were depleted in cholesterol (from 1.5 +/- 0.2 to 0.6 +/- 0.3 micromol/micromol glycerophospholipids, p <0.001). In summary, we found an increased proportion of GM1 and GM2 in DRMs, and accelerating plaque formation at an early stage, which may gradually lead to membrane raft disruptions and thereby affect cellular functions associated with the presence of such membrane domains.
