Abstract

Hypoxia is the main reason leading to neuronal death during different forms of brain diseases. The main phenomenon observed at hypoxia is excessive growth of intraneuronal Ca2+ concentration leading to irreversible cell damage. Despite extensive studies of this process, the intracellular mechanisms responsible for disturbance in Ca2+ are still unclear. The aim of present investigations was to explore these mechanisms. Ca2+ was measured by spatial screening of isolated dorsal root ganglion (sensory) neurons loaded with fluorescent dye Fura-2AM after exposing them hypoxic solution. Hypoxia resulted in a reversible elevation of Ca2+, which could be partly prevented by several pharmacological agents. We concluded that in sensory neurons hypoxia-induced elevation of cytosolic Ca2+ is induced by primary changes in ionic channels and secondary in function of mitochondria.
