Abstract

Treatment with FK506, an inhibitor of Ca<SUP>2+</SUP>/calmodulin dependent phosphatase (calcineurin, CaN), within 1 hr after transient ischemia afforded protection from apoptotic death in CA1 pyramidal neurons. To investigate isoformspecific roles of CaN in the neuronal cell death, we localized CaN Aα and CaN Aβ in the gerbil hippocampus using isoform-specific, antibodies. In control gerbils, immunoreactions of both isoforms were highly enriched in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons. Four to seven days after the induced ischemia, immunoreactivities of both isoforms were markedly reduced in the CA1 pyramidal cell and lacunosum-molecular layers. The CaN Aα immunoreactivity was increased in the CA1 radiatum and oriens layers, whereas that of CaN Aβ was enhanced in reactive astrocytes in the CA1 region. These findings suggest that CaN Aα is involved in sprouting of afferent fibers in CA1 and that CaN Aβ is involved in the reaction of astrocytes such as assembly of glial fibril acidic protein.
