Abstract [en]

For proper development, cells need to coordinate proliferation and cell cycle-exit. This is mediated by a cascade of proteins making sure that each phase of the cell cycle is controlled before the initiation of the next. Retinal progenitor cells divide during the process of interkinetic nuclear migration, where they undergo S-phase on the basal side, followed by mitoses on the apical side of the neuroepithelium. The final cell cycle of chicken retinal horizontal cells (HCs) is an exception to this general cell cycle behavior. Lim1 expressing (+) horizontal progenitor cells (HPCs) have a heterogenic final cell cycle, with some cells undergoing a terminal mitosis on the basal side of the retina. The results in this study show that this terminal basal mitosis of Lim1+ HPCs is not dependent on Chk1/2 for its regulation compared to retinal cells undergoing interkinetic nuclear migration. Neither activating nor blocking Chk1 had an effect on the basal mitosis of Lim1+ HPCs. Furthermore, the Lim1+ HPCs were not sensitive to cisplatin-induced DNA damage and were able to continue into mitosis in the presence of γ-H2AX without activation of caspase-3. However, Nutlin3a-induced expression of p21 did reduce the mitoses, suggesting the presence of a functional p53/p21 response in HPCs. In contrast, the apical mitoses were blocked upon activation of either Chk1/2 or p21, indicating the importance of these proteins during the process of interkinetic nuclear migration. Inhibiting Cdk1 blocked M-phase transition both for apical and basal mitoses. This confirmed that the cyclin B1-Cdk1 complex was active and functional during the basal mitosis of Lim1+ HPCs. The regulation of the final cell cycle of Lim1+ HPCs is of particular interest since it has been shown that the HCs are able to sustain persistent DNA damage, remain in the cell cycle for an extended period of time and, consequently, survive for months.

Abstract [en]

The cell cycle is a highly complex process that is under the control of several pathways.  Failure to regulate and/or complete the cell cycle often leads to cell cycle arrest, which may be followed by programmed cell death (apoptosis). One cell type that has a variety of unique cell cycle properties is the horizontal cell of the chicken retina. In this thesis we aimed to characterize the final cell cycle of retinal horizontal cells. In addition, the regulation of the cell cycle and the resistance to apoptosis of retinal horizontal cells are investigated.

Our results show that the final cell cycle of Lim1-expressing horizontal progenitor cells is heterogenic and three different cell cycle behaviors can be distinguished. The horizontal cells are generated by: (i) an interkinetic nuclear migration with an apical mitosis; (ii) a final cell cycle with an S-phase that is not followed by mitosis, such cells remain with a fully or partially replicated genome; or (iii) non-apical (basal) mitoses. Furthermore, we show that the DNA damage response pathway is not triggered during the heterogenic final cell cycle of horizontal progenitor cells. However, chemically induced DNA damage activated the DNA damage response pathway without leading to cell cycle arrest, and the horizontal progenitor cells entered mitosis in the presence of DNA damage. This was not followed by apoptosis, despite the horizontal cells being able to functionally activate p53, p21CIP1/waf1, and caspase-3. Finally, we show that FoxN4 is expressed in horizontal progenitor cells and is required for their generation. Over-expression of FoxN4 causes cell death in several neuronal retinal cell types, except horizontal cells, where it results in an overproduction.

In conclusion, in this thesis, a novel cell cycle behavior, which includes endoreplication not caused by DNA damage and a basal mitosis that can proceed in the presence of DNA damage, is described. The cell cycle and cell survival processes are of particular interest since retinal horizontal cells are suggested to be the cell-of-origin for retinoblastoma.
