AbstractBone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) play a critical role in regulating cell fate determination during central nervous system (CNS) development. In light of recent findings that BMP-2/4/7 expressions are upregulated after spinal cord injury, we hypothesized that the BMP signaling pathway is important in regulating cellular composition in the injured spinal cord. We found that BMP expressions were upregulated in neural stem cells (NSCs), neurons, oligodendrocytes and microglia/macrophages. Increased expression levels of pSmad1/5/8 (downstream molecules of BMP) were detected in neurons, NSCs, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and oligodendroglial progenitor cells (OPCs). Active astrocytes which form the astroglial scar were probably derived from NSCs, OPCs and resident astrocytes. Since quiescent NSCs in the normal adult spinal cord will proliferate and differentiate actively into neural cells after traumatic injury, we proposed that BMPs can regulate cellular components by controlling NSC differentiation. Neurosphere culture from adult mouse spinal cord showed that BMP-4 promoted astrocyte differentiation from NSCs while suppressing production of neurons and oligodendrocytes. Conversely, inhibition of BMP-4 by Noggin notably decreased the ratio of astrocyte to neuron numbers. However, intrathecal administration of Noggin in the injured spinal cord failed to attenuate glial fibrillar acidic protein (GFAP) expression even though it effectively reduced pSmad expression. Noggin treatment did not block phosphorylation of Stat3 and the induction of GFAP in the injured spinal cord, suggesting that in addition to the BMP/Smad pathway, the JAK/STAT pathway may also be involved in the regulation of GFAP expression after spinal cord injury.
