GsMTx4, a peptide inhibitor for mechanosensitive ion channels (MSCs), promoted neurite outgrowth from PC12 cells in the presence of NGF in a dose-dependent manner between 5 and 100 microM peptide. Enhanced neurite growth required >12 h of peptide exposure in cells grown with NGF. Adsorption of GsMTx4 to serum proteins in the media lowered the free peptide concentration of 100 microM to a free concentration of 5 microM, a concentration shown to completely inhibit MSCs in the patch clamp assay. Outside-out patches from PC12 cells grown in NGF had mechanically activated cation channels that were reversibly inhibited by GsMTx4. These results are similar to those observed by Gomez and co-workers in Xenopus spinal cord. The inhibition of mechanosensitive channels by GsMTx4 may be a useful approach to accelerate regeneration of neurons in neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord injury.
