Tan, Hale Saybasili* Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Bogazici University, Istanbul, 34684, Istanbul Abstract Rotenone is a pesticide and piscicide, wh ich causes behavioral and biochemical changes in rats that closely resemble PD sympto ms in hu mans. Rotenone is a naturally occurring ret inoid plant ext ract derived fro m the roots of certain tropical and subtropical legu me p lants and interferes with energy p roduction in the cell. Rotenone is highly lipophilic, so it can easily cross the blood brain barrier and cellular memb rane for intracellular entry.It is known that this pesticide causes superoxide release and results in decreased energy production by inhibiting electron transport chain of mitochondria fro m NADH ubiquinone reductaseand may lead to neuronal death. The object of the current research is to investigate the effect of rotenone on synaptic transmission in h ippocampus, especially on glutamatergic transmission for a b rief exposure time. For this purpose, hippocampal CA 1 pyramidal neuronal response upon low frequency stimulation of Schaffer collateral (0.1 Hz) was recorded by the patch clamp tight-seal whole cell recording technique. Different rotenone concentrations were tested on total glutamate current; it was observed that the rotenone effect on the amplitude of glutamatergic currents is dependent on its concentration. To eliminate the rotenone induced cytoplasmic effects, ATP was excluded fro m the intracellular solution in experiments. Our experimental results show that the drug acutely and dose-dependently attenuates the currents that are med iated by glutamate, v ia a direct effect on cell membrane g lutamate receptors.

Introduction Today, a considerable body of research exists which shows the toxicity of pesticides for hu man health[1-6]. Generally, these adverse effects of pesticides were demonstrated at doses previously declared as safe by industry and government[7]. Different pesticides have been lin ked with a variety of toxic effects on the nervous system and other organs causing carcinogenic effects, hormone system effects and general irritation[1-6]. Wide exposure of the population to pesticides in food products is the main source of the accumulation of pesticide residues in the human body. One of these pesticides, rotenone, has been shown to induce many of the major sympto ms of Parkinson’s disease in rats after long-term exposure[8]. Rotenone is used as a natural broad-spectrum pesticide ext racted fro m the derris plant. It is often formulated as dusts, powders and sprays for use in gardens and on food crops[7]. Rotenone is a naturally occurring ret inoid p lant ext ract derived fro m the roots of certain tropical and subtropical legu me plants and used as broad spectru m pesticide and * Corresponding author: saybasil@boun.edu.tr (Hale Saybasili) Published online at https://www.eduzhai.net Copyright © 2012 Scientific & Academic Publishing. All Rights Reserved insecticide. It is used in organic farming to control aphids and to kill fish paradises. These applications should be performed in ext reme care and s mall quantities, because rotenone is also toxic to fish populations. Rotenone use in agriculture can cause serious pollution of streams and reservoirs, since it can easily wash of the soil with heavy rains[9]. The degradation can sometimes persist for up to six months depending on a variety of factors including light, temperature, depth, dose and presence of organic debris. The decomposition process occurs faster as the temperature of the water increases. Rotenone toxicity tests showed that goldfish (Carassius auratus) were the most resistant of the 21 species tested, where Atlantic salmon (Salmosalar) were the most sensitive[10]. Rotenone is highly lipophilic, so it can easily cross the blood brain barrier and cellular membrane for intracellular entry[11]. Inside the cell, rotenone accumulates at mitochondrial co mp lex-1 as a b locker, causing o xidative stress and a decrease in energy production, which leads to neuronal death. Hippocampus is a model system for neurophysiology since it has different neuronal cell types, which are well organised into layers. The storing of certain types of me mory requires hippocampal function[12]. Da mage in hippocampus and its associated pathways (such as fornix) results in a major deficit in learning to recognise new stimuli[13] and spatial memo ry acquisition[14]. Hippocampus receives 213 American Journal of Biomedical En gineer in g 2012, 2(6): 212-217 highly processed data from association areas such as parietal cortex, the inferior temporal v isual cortex and the superior temporal co rtex[15]. The CA1 hippocampal area is a very vulnerable brain region affected by adverse conditions such as ischemia and anoxia[16]. Information flow in hippocampus is mostly unidirectional. Tightly packed cell-layers are paths for propagating signals. The main output region in hippocampus is CA1 pyramidal cell region[17]. L-glutamate is a universal excitatory neurotransmitter of the vertebrate central nervous system. Ionotropic glutamate receptors are div ided into 3 subgroups, NMDA (N-methylD-aspartate), kain ite and AMPA (a-amino-3-hydroxy -5-met hyl-4-iso xalone propionic acid)[18]. NM DA receptors allow memb rane transport of sodium, potassium and calciu m ions, and also work as co incidence detectors since their channel opening requires depolarizat ion and the release of glutamate fro m presynaptic neurons simultaneously. Kainate and AMPA receptors allow memb rane transport of sodium and potassium ions. In our current research, we studied the effect of rotenone on the CA1 pyramidal neuron functioning in rat hippocampus. Our main aim is to assess the acute influence of rotenone on glutamatergic transmission. 2. Materials and Methods 2.1. In-Vitro Hi ppocampal Slice Preparation Sprague Dawley rats on postnatal days 10-25 were provided fro m the Experimental Animal Center, Marmara University (Istanbul). The experiments were conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the Animal Research Co mmittee of Bogazici Un iversity. Hippocampal slices were prepared as previously described[19]. Transversal slices (200µM in th ickness) were prepared by using a vibroslicer and incubated in carbogen gas (95%O2-5%CO2) aerated artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF) containing (mM ): NaCl 125, KCL 2.5, CaCl2 2.0, MgCl2 1.0, NaH2PO4 1.25, NaHCO3 26, Glucose 10. Slices were maintained in aCSF solution for at least 45 minutes before performing experiments. During record ings, slices were kept submerged in a chamber perfused with aCSF, which was saturated with carbogen gas. All experiments were performed at room temperature. 2.2. Patch Clamp Tight-Seal Whole Cell Recording To take whole-cell patch-clamp records fro m pyramidal neurons in the CA1 layer of h ippocampus, slices were transferred to a recording chamber p laced on a microscope stage. Healthy hippocampal CA1 neurons were visualised by using a CCD camera (sensicamqe 672 LS, pco.imag ing, Germany). Borosilicate recording-electrodes (with 4-7MΩ resistance) were made with a micropipette puller PP-81 (Narishige, Japan) fro m borosilicate capillaries (Hilfenberg, Germany). The co mposition of the standard pipette solution for record ing post-synaptic currents was (mM): CsF 135.0, CsCl 5.0, EGTA 10.0, HEPES 10.0, CaCl2 1.0 (pH 7.3). Cesiu m (Cs+) was used as the main cation to substitute K+ ions and to suppress potassiumconductance and fluoride (F-), which blocks the chloride conductance and calcium dynamics[20], was used as the main anion. At the time of recording, stimuli (0.1 Hz) were applied to the Schaffer collateral pathway of the h ippocampal slice through a tungsten bipolar stimu lation electrode. To obtain a whole-cell clamp configuration, the gigaohm seal fo rmed between the cell membrane and recording pipette was disrupted by a slight negative pressure application at a holding potential of -60 mV. Patch-clamp amp lifier was EPC-7 (List Medicals, Darmstadt, Germany), analog signals were filtered with a 3kHz Bessel filter and converted into digital signals by ITC-18 A/D converter (Instrutech, USA) at 25kHz. Stimu lating current-pulses were generated fro m computer and delivered via a stimulus isolation unit (Iso-Flex, Israel). The g lutamergic currents were recorded at a slightly depolarized voltage value (-50 mV) and rotenone was applied to observe its effect on glutamergic currents only after stable a mplitude of control currents was reached. 2.3. Rotenone Application Rotenone (purchased from Sig ma) was prepared as stock in dimethylsulfo xide (DM SO) and was diluted directly in the aCSF, and applied v ia the perfusion system at 0.1, 0.5, and 1µM of final concentrations. Control values were recorded for 3 minutes and neurons were treated with rotenone only if their synaptic current amp litude was stable. Then, rotenone was applied to the hippocampal slices for 3 minutes and following this, wash with aCSF was performed for 6 minutes. For the early (first 3minutes) and the late (second 3minutes) wash periods, rotenone effects on the neuronal responses were analysed separately. Former and latter halves of 6 minutes long aCSF wash are designated as E-wash and L-wash, respectively. While E-wash covers the period between 6th and 9th minutes, L-wash covers 9th-12th minute time interval of e xpe riments. 2.4. Data Analysis WinWCP and MATLAB-R2009b were used for data acquisition and analysis. SPSS13 was used for statistics. WinWCP is a freeware program provided by Strathclyde Institute. MATLAB and SPSS programs are licensed for Bogazici University. Peak values of current response waves of neurons were analysed for control (before rotenone treatment), rotenone application and wash periods of each experiment. Current response waves were plotted by averaging 18 sweeps of the glutamatergic responses. 3. Results The responses of CA1 pyramidal cells were recorded by patch clamp tight-seal whole cell recording technique at a Fatih Akkentli et al.: Common Pesticide Rotenone Interfer ence with Neuronal Transmission in Hippocampus 214 holding potential of -50 mV. Whole cell currents were recorded from the soma of the hippocampal pyramidal neurons. Neuronal responses, inward postsynaptic currents, were evoked by a single brief current pulse (0.1 Hz frequency), which was delivered to the Schaffer collateral pathway. The intracellu lar p ipette solution did not contain ATP to exclude the contribution of intracellular systems. Thus, only the currents originating only fro m membrane receptors are recorded. The effects of different concentrations of rotenone were tested on glutamate current; 0.1 mM rotenone was found to have no effect on glutamate currents“Figure.1” (F3,18=0.37, P=0.77, n=6). The excitatory postsynaptic currents did not change with rotenone application. decrease ofexcitatory post synaptic current with 0.5µM concentration of rotenone. Rotenone (1µM ) effect was also tested on neuronal responses. During rotenone application, amp litude of glutamatergic response was not affected, but during wash, rotenone inhibition on neuronal currents was observed “Figure 3”. In the late phase of wash, there was a significant decrease of the current responses by 48±6% (F3,16=16.69, n=5, P<0.05). Green and blue traces show the control and rotenone application in “Figure 3”. Figure 1. Effect of 0.1μM rotenone on Schaffer collateral stimulationevoked glutamate current.

Rotenone-induced inhibitory effect on gluta matergic transmission was dose dependent and irreversible. “Figure 4” shows the effect of three concentrations of rotenone on Schaffer collateral stimu lation induced glutamate currents. Observed decreases in the E-wash phase are 29%, 16%, 4% for 1µM , 0.5µM and 0.1µM , respectively. The significance level is P<0.05 in comparison to control. Figure 2.

In the latter 3 minute-phase of wash period coming after 0.5µM rotenone treatment, level of glutamate current was decreased significantly Rotenone with a final concentration of 0.5µM inhib ited neuronal responses, but the inhibition was less than the one observed with 1µM concentration of rotenone “Figure. 2”. Rotenone (0.5µM) application for 3 minutes significantly decreased neuronal responses by 34±5% (F3,16=11.31, n=5, P<0.05) during the phase of late wash.

Discussion Rotenone is a subject of investigation in neuroscience because it causes neuropathic characteristics in rats that closely resembles to PD in humans[8]. At the neuronal level, it is used as a model to study the effect of mitochondrial inhibit ion[21]. As a consequence of mitochondrial inhib ition, energy depletion and the generation of reactive o xygen species induce different effects on neurons fro m different brain regions. Understanding this diversity in rotenone effect on neurons is important for depicting the variance in the functioning of different neuron types. Rotenone is known for its to xicity in dopaminergic neurons and that is how it has a disruptive effect in brain forms a model for PD[21]. In this study, we showed that the neuronal responses of pyramidal neurons in CA 1 reg ion of hippocampus are decreased with rotenone treatment. To our knowledge, this is the first report about the acute glutamatergic inhibit ion by using different rotenone concentrations in hippocampal slices. Single neuron responses evoked by Schaffer collateral stimulat ion were inhibited by 0.5 and 1µM concentrations of rotenone exposure. Unlike the effect of chronic rotenone exposure on neuronal survival in th is study, a brief application of rotenone (0.5µM/1 µM for 3minutes) fro m perfusion solution was sufficient to inhibit the neuronal tran s mis s io n . As previously indicated long exposure (for 12 hours) to 10µM rotenone did not produce toxicity on glutamatergicneurons[22]. The inhibit ion of glutamaterg ic response observed in our study is unlikely to be the result of neuron degeneration caused by exposure to rotenone (1µM for 3 minutes) because it has a short duration. In 0.1 µM rotenone application experiments no inhib ition of neuronal responses was observed, while dose dependent inhibition was observed for 0.5 and 1µM concentrations. This indicates that inhibition of glutamatergic responses is caused by rotenone application rather than other nonspecific interference in the experiments. Although rotenone primarily inhibits mitochondria complex I, degeneration of dopaminergic neurons via rotenone treatment does not require the inhibition of complex-I[23]. Rotenone is known to depoly merize microtubules, the components of the cell skeleton that are involved in vesicular t ransportation[24]. The stabilizat ion of microtubules with taxol prevents rotenone induced selective damage to dopaminerg ic and serotonergic neurons[22]. A lso, the Parkin-protein prevents rotenone damage on dopaminergic neurons by stabilizing microtubules[25]. Likewise, neurotropic factors and group III metabotropic glutamate receptor activity inhibits selective rotenone toxicity on dopaminergic neurons by stabilizing micro tu b u les [26 ], [2 7] . Microtubule depolymerisation disrupts vesicular transport and causes their accumulation in the soma[28]. The accumulat ion of dopamine can be to xic because increased cytosolic concentration of this neuromodulator elevates oxidative stress due to dopamine o xidation[22]. Since glutamate cannot be oxidized, rotenone does not cause a similar to xicity in g lutamaterg ic neurons but it has been claimed that it depoly merizes the microtubules[25],[28]. On the other hand, rotenone was found to generate a higher level of superoxide generation in rat hippocampal slices compared to rat striatal slices, showing that this structure is mo re vulnerable to o xidative stress[29].The impact o f rotenone as a pesticide in controlling the habitat quality of aquatic ecosystems has been discussed before[30]. In our experiments, observed irreversible rotenone interference with glutamatergic transmission might result fro m a deficit in glutamate transportation to the presynaptic terminals. Thus, rotenone treatment may decrease the level of presynaptic release of glutamate. Therefore, the inhibitory effect of rotenone on neuronal responses might be presynaptic rather than on the postsynaptic site. On the other hand, in the literature, rotenone’s effect on microtubules was investigated with neuron cultures exposed to rotenone treatment lasting for 12 hours[22],[23],[25],[28]). Although it is apparent that microtubule disruption with rotenone interference may require a chronic exposure, in our experiments the rotenone exposure time of slices was very brief (i.e., 3 minutes). It has been reported that rotenone decreases field potentials (fEPSP) by 17% in CA1 reg ion of h ippocampus [31]. There are other reports about rotenone enhancement of NMDA responses in rat midbrain slices, thispotentiating effect linked to NMDA receptor activation[32]. 5. Conclusions Rotenone has been widely used to select certain fish populations over the other species and commonly used in fresh waters reservoirs. Our research showed that rotenone has an acute inhibitory effect on the hippocampal glutamatergic t ransmission under ATP deficient conditions. This condition excludes the contribution of mitochondrial compart ment to our experimental results. To our knowledge, this is the first study that investigated the immed iate effect of rotenone on membrane g lutamate receptors. Rotenone effect was found to be dose dependent and irreversible. Given the impact and exposure time to rotenone, the experimental conditions of our work define a situation in which rotenone effect can be sharper compared to those in other literature that investigated some other electrophysiological and neurodegenerative features of the broad-spectrum pesticide, rotenone. Hence, our study isolated the more rotenone-sensitive conditions for neuronal transmission; in the case of ATP deficiency, rotenone can have serious dose-dependent inhibition on glutamatergic receptors. Since this pesticide is lipophilic, it can easily permeate the blood brain barrier and able to generate acute effects on neurons. As a future prospect, the rotenone effect can be studied by single cell imaging techniques and calcium dynamics in the cytoplasm can be v isualized, so compart mental involvement and interactions can be revealed.
