Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The contribution of inflammatory response to the pathogenesis of ischemic lesions in the neonate is still uncertain. This study described the chronological sequence of inflammatory changes that follow cerebral ischemia with reperfusion in the neonatal P7 rat. METHODS: P7 rats underwent left middle cerebral artery electrocoagulation associated with 1-hour left common carotid artery occlusion. The spatiotemporal pattern of cellular responses was characterized immunocytochemically with the use of antibodies against rat endogenous immunoglobulins to visualize the area of the breakdown of the blood-brain barrier. Infiltration of neutrophils and T lymphocytes was demonstrated by antibodies against myeloperoxidase and a pan-T cell marker, respectively. Antibodies ED1 and OX-42 were applied to identify microglial cells and macrophages. The response of astrocytes was shown with antibodies against glial fibrillary acidic protein. Cell survival was assessed by Bcl-2 expression. Cell death was demonstrated by DNA fragmentation with the use of the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP biotin nick end labeling (TUNEL) assay and Bax immunodetection. RESULTS: Endogenous immunoglobulin extravasation through the blood-brain barrier occurred at 2 hours of recirculation and persisted until 1 month after ischemia. Neutrophil infiltration began at 24 hours and peaked at 72 to 96 hours (30+/-3.4 neutrophils per 0.3 mm(2); P<0.0001), then disappeared at 14 days after ischemia. T cells were observed between 24 and 96 hours of reperfusion. Resident microglia-macrophages exhibited morphological remnants and expressed the cell death inhibitor Bcl-2 at 24 hours of recirculation. They became numerous within the next 48 hours and peaked at 7 days after ischemia. Phenotypic changes of resident astrocytes were apparent at 24 hours, and they proliferated between 48 hours and 7 days after ischemia. Progressively inflammatory cells showed DNA fragmentation and the cell death activator Bax expression. Cell elimination continued until there was a complete disappearance of the frontoparietal cortex. CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate that perinatal ischemia with reperfusion triggers acute inflammatory responses with granulocytic cell infiltration, which may be involved in accelerating the destructive processes.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
