Diabetic-induced neural tube defects in embryos are caused by apoptosis of neural progenitor cells (NPCs); however, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. The present study is aimed to investigate the specific cellular proteins that may be involved in apoptosis of NPCs. We show here that hyperglycemia-induced apoptosis of NPCs was through a PKCδ-dependent mechanism. Tyrosine phosphorylation of PKCδ was required for PKCδ binding to c-Abl in the cytoplasm, and inhibition of c-Abl by STI571 or knock-down of c-Abl by RNAi decreased the phosphorylation of PKCδ. Moreover, translocation of PKCδ and c-Abl complex from the cytoplasm to the nucleus, was blocked by down-regulation of PKCδ or c-Abl. Furthermore, we found that interaction of PKCδ and c-Abl played a crucial role in p53 accumulation in the nucleus, which was linked to the apoptosis of NPCs in response to high glucose.
