Glial changes following traumatic injury to glial monolayers as well as to neuronal-glial co-culture systems in vitro were examined with a focus on the expression of mRNAs coding for the immediate early genes (IEG) c-fos, c-jun and zif/268, demonstrated using in situ hybridization. Glial cells along scratch wound lines extended cytoplasmic processes as early as 10 min post-injury and the whole wound was covered with gliosis by 24 h. For complete restoration in the case of glial cells co-cultured with neurons, this required 48 h. Induction of the three IEG mRNAs was eminent along the edges of scratch wound, peaking at 30-60 min post-injury and subsiding by 3 h. The peak expression of IEG mRNAs was delayed to 1-3 h post-injury and became undetectable at 6 h in neuronal-glial co-cultures. The data suggest that mechanical injury to glial cells causes gliosis and the expression of IEG mRNAs, which are suppressed by co-culture with neurons, indicating some influence of neuronal-glial interactions.
