Abstract [en]

GABAA receptors are pentameric chloride ion channels that are opened by GABA. We have screened a cell line derived from human glioblastoma, U3047MG, for expression of GABAA receptor subunit isoforms and formation of functional ion channels. We identified GABAA receptors subunit α2, α3, α5, β1, β2, β3, δ, γ3, π, and θ mRNAs in the U3047MG cell line. Whole-cell GABA-activated currents were recorded and the half-maximal concentration (EC50) for the GABA-activated current was 36μM. The currents were activated by THIP (4,5,6,7-tetrahydroisoxazolo[5,4-c]pyridin-3-ol) and enhanced by the benzodiazepine diazepam (1μM) and the general anesthetics etomidate and propofol (50μM). In line with the expressed GABAA receptors containing at least the α3β3θ subunits, the receptors were highly sensitive to etomidate (EC50=55nM). Immunocytochemistry identified expression of the α3 and β3 subunit proteins. Our results show that the GABAA receptors in the glial cell line are functional and are modulated by classical GABAA receptor drugs. We propose that the U3047MG cell line may be used as a model system to study GABAA receptors function and pharmacology in glial cells.

Abstract [en]

GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) is the main neuroinhibitory transmitter in mammalian brains.  It binds to GABA-A and GABA-B receptors. The GABA-A receptors are ligand-gated chloride channels. A variety of GABA-A receptor agonists and antagonists have been developed to study the GABA-mediated inhibition and to explore new medications. In this thesis I have examined the role of GABA in brain tumors and the effects of the metabolic hormone GLP-1 on GABAergic signaling in neurons.

I studied if GABA-A receptors subunits were expressed and formed functional ion channels in the glioblastoma cell line U3047MG. I identified the mRNA of 11, α2, α3, α5, β1, β2, β3, δ, γ3, π, θ and ρ2, out of the 19 known GABA-A subunits. Immunostaining demonstrated abundant expression of the α3 and β3 subunits. Interestingly, whole-cell GABA-activated currents were recorded in only 12% of the cells. The GABA-activated currents half-maximal concentration (EC50) was 36 µM. The currents were modulated by diazepam (1 µM) and the general anesthetics propofol (50 µM) and etomidate (EC50 = 50 nM).

GLP-1 and exendin-4 transiently enhanced the GABA-A receptor-mediated currents in CA3 neurons of the rat hippocampus. The tonic and the spontaneous inhibitory postsynaptic currents increased as compared to control in a concentration dependent manner.  The increase was related to enhanced release of GABA from the presynaptic terminals and increased insertion or affinity of GABA-A receptors in the CA3 postsynaptic neuron. In contrast to GLP-1 and exendin-4, liraglutide enhanced the currents only in a subset of the neurons and the effect was mainly mediated by presynaptic mechanisms. 

In conclusion, GABA signaling in neurons is modified by the metabolic hormone GLP-1 and its mimetics highlighting the important cross-talk that takes place between the brain and other organs. Medicines modifying GABA signaling in the brain may be important for a number of diseases.
