Ouabain (OUA) is a cardiac glycoside that binds to Na+, K+-ATPase (NKA), a conserved membrane protein that controls cell transmembrane ionic concentrations and requires ATP hydrolysis. At nM concentrations, OUA activates signaling pathways that are not related to its typical inhibitory effect on the NKA pump. Activation of these signaling pathways protects against some types of injury of the kidneys and central nervous system. There are 4 isoforms of the alpha subunit of NKA, which are differentially distributed across tissues and may have different physiological roles. Glial cells are important regulators of injury and inflammation in the brain and express the alpha 1 and alpha 2 NKA isoforms. This study investigated the role of alpha 2 NKA in OUA modulation of the neuroinflammatory response induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mouse primary glial cell cultures. LPS treatment increased lactate dehydrogenase release, while OUA did not decrease cell viability and blocked LPS-induced NF-kappa B activation. Silencing alpha 2 NKA prevented ERK and NF-kappa B activation by LPS. alpha 2 NKA also regulates TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta levels. The data reported here indicate a significant role of alpha 2 NKA in regulating central LPS effects, with implications in the associated neuroinflammatory processes. (AU)
