Sažetak
Introduction: Chronic stress affects brain via HPA axis and changes glucose metabolism. Response to stress is gender and age specific - females endure stress better than males until menopause. Receptors involved in energy metabolism could contribute to stress response in the brain. Therefore, we analyzed insulin (IR) and leptin receptors (ObR) in hippocampi (HIP) and cerebella (CER) of stressed male and female rats to determine whether stress causes gender and age differences in neuronal metabolism. Methods: Male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were divided in young (6.5 months old) and old (14.5 months old) groups. Chronic stress protocol was performed in three 10-day stress sessions each separated by 2 weeks of no stress period. IR and ObR were detected in HIP and CER by immunohistochemistry and Western blot. All data was analyzed by the Statistica software. Results: Both immunohistochemistry and Western blot showed prominent decrease of IR expression in HIP and CER of old males upon stress compared to appropriate control group, what was exactly contrary to young males and females under stress. Immunohistochemistry of ObR had similar pattern: the expression was decreased in old stressed males in both tissues and it was increased in young stressed males. Western blot revealed long and short form of ObR which had more complex pattern of changes in males and females. The long form was expressed exactly opposite to the pattern revealed by immunohistochemistry. Discussion and Conclusion: Both, IR and ObR, are strongly influenced by stress in old males. Resistance of both receptors could be hypothesized in the case of old stressed males which could lead to impaired neuronal energy metabolism, central diabetes and neuronal death. Stress regulation in the brain is sex- and age-specific and old animals tend to show a stronger stress response than young animals what could lead to energy shortage and neurodegeneration.
