Paper: Structural and transcriptomic response to antenatal corticosteroids in an Erk3-null mouse model of respiratory distress

Authors: Pew BK, Harris RA, Sbrana E, Guaman MC, Shope C, Chen R, Meloche S, Aagaard K.

Abstract:
BACKGROUND:
Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome in preterm infants is a leading cause of neonatal death. Pulmonary insufficiency-related infant mortality rates have improved with antenatal glucocorticoid treatment and neonatal surfactant replacement. However, the mechanism of glucocorticoid-promoted fetal lung maturation is not understood fully, despite decades of clinical use. We previously have shown that genetic deletion of Erk3 in mice results in growth restriction, cyanosis, and early neonatal lethality because of pulmonary immaturity and respiratory distress. Recently, we demonstrated that the addition of postnatal surfactant administration to antenatal dexamethasone treatment resulted in enhanced survival of neonatal Erk3-null mice.

OBJECTIVE:
To better understand the molecular underpinnings of corticosteroid-mediated lung maturation, we used high-throughput transcriptomic and high-resolution morphologic analysis of the murine fetal lung. We sought to examine the alterations in fetal lung structure and function that are associated with neonatal respiratory distress and antenatal glucocorticoid treatment.

STUDY DESIGN:
Dexamethasone (0.4 mg/kg) or saline solution was administered to pregnant dams on embryonic days 16.5 and 17.5. Fetal lungs were collected and analyzed by microCT and RNA-seq for differential gene expression and pathway interactions with genotype and treatment. Results from transcriptomic analysis guided further investigation of candidate genes with the use of immunostaining in murine and human fetal lung tissue.

RESULTS:
Erk3(-/-) mice exhibited atelectasis with decreased overall porosity and saccular space relative to wild type, which was ameliorated by glucocorticoid treatment. Of 596 differentially expressed genes (q < 0.05) that were detected by RNA-seq, pathway analysis revealed 36 genes (q < 0.05) interacting with dexamethasone, several with roles in lung development, which included corticotropin-releasing hormone and surfactant protein B. Corticotropin-releasing hormone protein was detected in wild-type and Erk3(-/-) lungs at E14.5, with significantly temporally altered expression through embryonic day 18.5. Antenatal dexamethasone attenuated corticotropin-releasing hormone at embryonic day 18.5 in both wild-type and Erk3(-/-) lungs (0.56-fold and 0.67-fold; P < .001). Wild type mice responded to glucocorticoid administration with increased pulmonary surfactant protein B (P = .003). In contrast, dexamethasone treatment in Erk3(-/-) mice resulted in decreased surfactant protein B (P = .012). In human validation studies, we confirmed that corticotropin-releasing hormone protein is present in the fetal lung at 18 weeks of gestation and increases in expression with progression towards viability (22 weeks of gestation; P < .01).

CONCLUSION:
Characterization of whole transcriptome gene expression revealed glucocorticoid-mediated regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone and surfactant protein B via Erk3-independent and -dependent mechanisms, respectively. We demonstrated for the first time the expression and temporal regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone protein in midtrimester human fetal lung. This unique model allows the effects of corticosteroids on fetal pulmonary morphologic condition to be distinguished from functional gene pathway regulation. These findings implicate Erk3 as a potentially important molecular mediator of antenatal glucocorticoid action in promoting surfactant protein production in the preterm neonatal lung and expanding our understanding of key mechanisms of clinical therapy to improve neonatal survival

    7. How the nominee has influenced the quality of the postdoctoral experience on a local, regional, or national level.
  2. OPTIONAL:  Up to three (3) supporting documents (e.g., letters of support from former students and/or postdoctoral scholars and colleagues, and newspaper, magazine, or journal articles).

University of Pittsburgh graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and first professional students (MD, DMD, PharmD, Rehabilitation Science, and Nursing) in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, including psychology and social work, are invited to submit abstracts for the 2017 Health Disparities Poster Competition.

Sponsored by the Schools of the Health Sciences, this event gives young researchers an opportunity to present their work and expand their scientific professional skill set. The term "disparities" applies to differences in health status in any studied population compared to the comparable majority (or more commonly studied) population. They expect work in disparities based on race or ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, and other parameters.

$100 prizes will be awarded in four categories: master's, doctoral, postdoctoral, and first professional.

Knowledge of copyright is essential for scholarly work, beginning with your thesis or dissertation.

Mon 4/10/2017 12:00PM - 1:00PM

A supervised consumption site is a legally sanctioned health facility that offers a hygienic environment where people can use illicit drugs under the supervision of trained staff.  Although over 90 facilities have been implemented internationally to date, only two have been established in North America, both in Vancouver.  There is renewed interest across Canada and the US in supervised injection given the current marked rise in opioid overdoses and related deaths.  This talk will include discussion of how the intersection of evidence, research and policy moved the discussion of supervised injection in Toronto from a controversial idea to a widely supported policy recommendation with anticipated approval within the next few weeks.  This talk will focus on how modeling can inform decisions about uncertain and controversial interventions and thoughts about conducting policy-relevant research that is controversial and value-laden.
