The lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxynonenal inhibits neurite outgrowth, disrupts neuronal microtubules, and modifies cellular tubulin.

Oxidative stress is believed to be an important factor in the development of age-related neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). The CNS is enriched in polyunsaturated fatty acids and is therefore particularly vulnerable to lipid peroxidation. Indeed, accumulation of lipid peroxidation products has been demonstrated in affected regions in brains of AD patients.

Another feature of AD is a change in neuronal microtubule organization. A possible causal relationship between lipid peroxidation products and changes in neuronal cell motility and cytoskeleton has not been investigated. We show here that 4-hydroxy-2(E)-nonenal (HNE), a major product of lipid peroxidation, inhibits neurite outgrowth and disrupts microtubules in Neuro 2A cells. The effect of HNE on microtubules was rapid, being observed after incubation times as short as 15 min. HNE can react with target proteins by forming either Michael adducts or pyrrole adducts. 4-Oxononanal, an HNE analogue that can form only pyrrole adducts but not Michael adducts, had no effect on the microtubules.

This suggests that the HNE-induced disruption of microtubules occurs via Michael addition. We also show that cellular tubulin is one of the major proteins modified by HNE and that the HNE adduction to tubulin occurs via Michael addition. Inhibition of neurite outgrowth, disruption of microtubules, and tubulin modification were observed at pathologically relevant HNE concentrations and were not accompanied by cytotoxicity.

Our results show that these are proximal effects of HNE that may contribute to cytoskeletal alterations that occur in AD.
