Gazerani).Aims: Satellite glial cells (SGCs) are non-neuronal cells thatentirely surround neurons within sensory ganglia. This uniquestructure allows SGC-neuron interactions. Altered cross-talk following nerve injury or inflammation is thought to contribute topathogenesis of chronic pain. Release of extracellular vesicles inform of exosomes has been found to play a key role in cell-cellcommunication. However, release of exosomes from SGCs and theirpotential role in modulating pain remain unknown. Hence, thisstudy aimed at identifying and characterizing shed exosomes fromSGCs under normal and inflammatory conditions.Methods: Fresh primary cultures of rat trigeminal ganglia (TG)were prepared from adult male Sprague–Dawley rats. Danish Animal Inspectorate approved the study protocol. Primary SGCs werekept in culture up to 21 days and were characterized by morphologyand immunohistochemistry. Cultured SGCs were monitored undernormal and LPS (50 ng/mL) treatment. Collection of conditionedmedia was performed over time and exosomes were isolated. Particle size distribution and total protein were determined by NTAand LC–MS/MS, respectively.Results: SGCs formed small clusters, spread outwards to areasdevoid of cells but remained spindle-like in appearance with largercell bodies. The primary cultures of SGCs were clearly GS positivewith a low expression of GFAP. LPS treatment led to higher GFAPexpression. Particle size distribution showed that two third of theparticles were in the exosomal size range. Upon LPS-stimulation,four proteins (histone H2B, ubiquitin-60S ribosomal, myosin-9,elongation factor 1-alpha) were found exclusively expressed compared to normal treated SGCs.Conclusions: For the first time it was demonstrated that SGCsshed extracellular vesicles in exosomal size range. Mysoin-9 wasidentified as a possible novel marker of SGCs activation underinflammatory conditions. This protein plays a role in cell-celladhesion and possibly contributes to SGC-SGC cross-talk uponinflammation which may consequently influence the excitabilityof nearby neurons.http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.sjpain.2017.04.018Cell-based platform for studying trigeminalsatellite glial cells under normal andinflammatory conditionsH.S.H.
