BACKGROUND: Collapsin response mediator protein-2 (CRMP-2) is the first member of the CRMP family that has been identified in primary neuronal cells; it was originally found and identified in the regulation of microtubule dimerization into microtubules.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: In the present study, we aimed to investigate the roles and mechanisms of CRMP-2 in sevoflurane-induced neurocyte injury. Cell viability, proliferation, and apoptosis were measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) assay and flow cytometry. Colorimetry was performed to measure the activity of caspase-3. Western blot and quantitative real-time reverse transcription assays were used to evaluate the related mRNAs and proteins expression.
RESULTS: We found that CRMP-2 reversed the inhibitory effect of sevoflurane on the viability of nerve cells. Moreover, CRMP-2 accelerated the proliferation and suppressed the apoptosis of sevoflurane-induced nerve cells. CRMP-2 modulated the expression levels of apoptosis-associated protein in sevoflurane-induced nerve cells. Furthermore, it was demonstrated that CRMP-2 impacted the PI3K-mTOR-S6K pathway.
CONCLUSIONS: CRMP2 ameliorated sevoflurane-mediated neurocyte injury by targeting the PI3K-mTOR-S6K pathway. Thus, CRMP2 might be an effective target for sevoflurane-induced neurocyte injury therapies.
