Abstract: Objective To investigate the effects of inhibitory oligodeoxynucleotide A151 on M1/M2 polarization of microglia by glucose and oxygen deprivation(OGD)and lipopolysaccharide(LPS). Methods The morphological changes of BV-2 cells treated with A151 were observed with inverted microscope. The cytokine content in supernatant and cytokine transcription levels were detected with ELISA and RT-PCR, respectively. The expressions of M1 and M2 surface markers in microglia and NLRP3 inflammasome were determined with Western blotting and immunofluorescence. Results A151 inhibited the morphological changes of BV-2 cells induced by LPS and OGD; downregulated the surface markers and highly-expressed cytokines of M1 microglia: inducible nitric oxide synthase(iNOS)、CD16/CD32、tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α)、interleukin-1β(IL-1β)(P<0.001); downregulated the transcription levels of TNF-α mRNA and IL-1β mRNA(P<0.001); upregulated the surface markers of M2 microglia and highly-expressed cytokines: arginase-1(Arg-1)、CD206、interleukin-10(IL-10)、 interleukin-4(IL-4)(PArg-1<0.001, PCD206<0.001, PIL-10<0.001, PIL-4=0.046); upregulated IL-10 mRNA and IL-4 mRNA transcription levels(P<0.001); down-regulated NLRP3 inflammasome expression(P<0.001). Conclusion By inhibiting the activation of NLRP3 inflammasome, A151 promotes the polarization of microglia induced by LPS and OGD from the pro-inflammatory M1 phenotype to the anti-inflammatory M2 phenotype, and plays a role in regulating inflammation.
