Title Regeneration in the pituitary after cell-ablation injury: time-related aspects and molecular analysis
Organism Mus musculus
Experiment type Expression profiling by array
Summary We recently showed that the mouse pituitary holds regenerative competence. Young-adult GHCre/iDTR mice, expressing diphtheria toxin (DT)-receptor in growth hormone (GH)-producing cells, regenerate the cells ablated by 3-day DT treatment (3DT) up to 60% after 5 months. The pituitary's stem cells were found to participate in this restoration process. Here, we characterized this regenerative capacity in relation to age and recovery period, and started to search for underlying molecular mechanisms. Extending the recovery period (to 19 months) does not result in higher regeneration levels. In addition, the regenerative competence disappears at ageing, coinciding with a reduction in pituitary stem cell number and fitness. Surprisingly, prolonging the DT treatment period in young-adult mice to 10 days (10DT) completely blocks the regeneration. The stem cell compartment still reacts by promptly expanding, and retains in vitro stem cell functionality. To obtain a first view on molecular grounds underlying reparative capacity and/or failure, the stem cell-clustering side population (SC-SP) was analyzed by whole-genome expression analysis. A number of stemness factors and components of the Notch, Shh, Wnt, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and Hippo pathways are higher expressed in the SC-SP of the regenerating pituitary (after 3DT) when compared to the basal gland and to the non-regenerating pituitary (after 10DT). Taken together, the regenerative capacity of the pituitary is limited both in age-related terms and final efficacy, and appears to rely on stem cell-associated pathway activation. Dissection of the molecular profiles may eventually identify targets to induce or boost regeneration in situations of (injury-related) pituitary deficiency.
Overall design Gene expression profile was compared of -/iDTR (ctrl) and GHCre/iDTR of female (independent 2 samples) mouse pituitaries treated with diphteria toxin for 3 (3DT) or 10 (10DT) days. The Nonsca1high (SC-SP) was sorted using FACS and total RNA was isolated.
