Microarray analysis of dorsal motor vagal nucleus, locus coeruleus and substantia nigra from postmortem samples of idiopathic Parkinson's disease patients in Braak stages 4-5

ABSTRACT: We analyzed the transcriptomic profile of post-mortem explants from dorsal nucleus of vagus nerve, locus coeruleus and substantia nigra obtained from controls and Braak 4 (BK4) and 5 (BK5) stages of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients in order to investigate how gene-gene interaction patterns vary along different anatomical regions in patients and controls. The comparative transcriptional networks analyses indicate that the main hubs in PD networks are related to ubquitin/proteasome, oxidative stress, neuroprotection, neurogenesis and PD associated proteins. Transcriptomic profiles of controls and Parkinson’s disease patients were compared using SAM test for LC or Wilcoxon Mann-Whitney test for SN and VA (p<0.005 and p<0.01, respectively) in order to identify differentially expressed transcripts.

Parkinson's disease (PD)—classically characterized by severe loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta—has a caudal-rostral progression, beginning in the dorsal motor vagal nucleus and, in a less extent, in the olfactory system, progressing to the midbrain and eventually to the basal forebrain and the neocortex. About 90% of the cases are idiopathic. To study the molecular mechanisms involved in idiopathic PD we conducted a comparative study of transcriptional interactio  ...[more]
