T he cAMP upregulation induced by chronic morphine is regarded as one of the molecular mechanisms leading to its tolerance and dependence. In the present work, we differentiated SH-SY5Y cells into neuron-like cells by retinoic acid (RA), pretreated these cells by morphine, the highly addictive drug, and tested their cAMP levels under different conditions, including co-culture with bone marrow-derived human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and human dermal fibroblast cells (hDFCs). We found that chronic treatment with 10μM morphine led to cAMP upregulation in these differentiated SH-SY5Y cells and the morphine mediated-cAMP upregulation was significantly attenuated by co-culturing with the hMSCs at early passages (P≤5), though this attenuation did not occur in co-cultures with the hMSCs at late passages (P>5) or hDFCs. In addition, hMSCs improved the mu-opioid receptor-mediated endocytosis in SH-SY5Y cells in preventing the development of morphine tolerance. In summary, early passaged hMSCs can successfully inhibit morphine induced cAMP upregulation in RA-differentiated SH-SY5Y cells by cell-cell contact and/or their released molecules, suggesting that hMSCs may serve as valuable therapeutics for treating morphine tolerance and dependence to minimize the risk of drug abuse and addiction.
