Abstract

We have studied the effect of gp120 coat protein from HIV-1 on tyrosine phosphorylation processes in primary cultures of granular neurons or glial cells from the cerebellum of neonatal rats. The extracellular application of recombinant gp120 (200 pM) was able to reduce the phosphotyrosine content and the immunoreactivity for active form-specific antibodies of MAP kinase. Whereas in neurons MAP kinase appeared to be the only protein whose phosphotyrosine content was decreased, in glial cultures the inhibitory effect of gp120 on tyrosine phosphorylation processes appeared to be more widespread. In neuronal cultures, the effect of the viral protein was prevented by the concomitant treatment with depolarizing agents.
