Aim: To determine the effect of 17 β-estradiol treatment on the expression and association of Tau hyperphosphorylation responsible kinases.
Methods: 17 β-estradiol treatments were realized in the hippocampus of ovariectomized adult wistar rats and in hippocampal primary cultures treated with β-amiloid. Protein complex association was assessed by co-immunoprecipitation, toxicity assay by LDH release and cell morphologic changes by confocal microscopy.
Results: Our results show that 17β-estradiol produced dissociation of macromolecular complexes like Tau/GSK3β, Tau /GluR2/3, Tau/FAK, and Tau/Fyn in hippocampus of adult rat. In addition the expression of GSK3β-ptyr was decreased by the hormonal treatment and this one regulated the defosforilation of Tau in an excitotoxicity model by β-amiloid.
Conclusions: It suggests new targets that will contribute to neuroprotection and neuronal plasticity studies mediated by the estrogen.
