#1 - Isolation, cultivation and immunofluorescence characterization of lamellar keratinocytes from equine hoof by using explants

Abstract in English:

The importance of the hoof to the horse health is clear, and the current knowledge regarding the cellular aspects of hoof keratinocytes is poor. Studies on equine keratinocyte culture are scarce. Developing keratinocyte cultures in vitro is a condition for studies on molecular biology, cell growth and differentiation. Some methods have already been established, such as those for skin keratinocyte culture. However, few methodologies are found for lamellar keratinocytes. The objective of this study was to standardize the equine hoof keratinocyte isolation and cultivation, and then characterize the cell immunophenotype. For this, the primary culture method used was through explants obtained from three regions of the equine hoof (medial dorsal, dorsal, and lateral dorsal). After the cell isolation and cultivation, the cell culture and its explants were stained with anti-pan cytokeratin (pan-CK) (AE1/AE3), vimentin (V9), p63 (4A4), and Ki-67 (MIB-1) antibodies. Cells were grown to third passage, were positive for pan-CK, p63 and Ki-67, and few cells had vimentin positive expression. As for the explants, the epidermal laminae were not stained for vimentin or Ki-67. However, some cells presented positive pan-CK and p63 expression. This study demonstrated the viability of lamellar explants of equine hooves as a form of isolating keratinocytes in primary cultures, as well as characterized the proliferation ability of such keratinocytes in monolayers.

Abstract in Portuguese:

É notória a importância do casco na saúde dos equinos, mas o conhecimento em nível celular é pouco entendido. Estudos envolvendo o cultivo de queratinócitos equinos são escassos. Sabe-se que o desenvolvimento de cultivos de queratinócitos in vitro é uma condição para estudos sobre a biologia molecular, crescimento e diferenciação celular. Alguns métodos já estão estabelecidos, como para cultivo de queratinócitos de pele, mas poucas metodologias são encontradas para queratinócitos lamelares. O objetivo desse estudo foi padronizar o cultivo de queratinócitos provenientes de casco equino visando futuramente associar ao estudo da medicina regenerativa para assim estabelecer um modelo experimental in vitro e indicar o uso criterioso de terapias regenerativas para a laminite equina. Desta forma, o cultivo em monocamada e a caracterização de queratinócitos lamelares foram realizados. Para isso, o método de cultura primária utilizado foi através de explantes obtidos de três regiões do casco (dorso-medial, dorsal e dorso-lateral). As células foram caracterizadas para os marcadores anti pan-cytokeratin (AE1/AE3), vimentin (V9), p63 (4A4) e Ki-67 (MIB-1) nos cultivos e nos explantes. As  células foram cultivadas até terceira passagem, tendo marcação positiva para pan-CK, p63 e Ki-67 e fraca marcação para vimentina. Já as lâminas epidermais não tiveram marcação de vimentin e Ki-67, porém marcaram acentuadamente para pan-CK e p63. Este estudo demonstrou a exiquibilidade do uso de explantes lamelares do casco de equinos, como forma de isolamento de queratinócitos em cultivos primários, bem como caracterizou a habilidade de proliferação desses queratinócitos em monocamada.

Oliveira A., Fonseca A.H., Ishikawa M.M. & Yoshinari N.H. 2004. [Cinetic growth of Borrelia burgdorferi (Spirochaetaceae) in different culture media.] Cinética do crescimento de Borrelia burgdorferi em diferentes meios de cultivo. Pesquisa Veterinária Brasileira 24(2):61-64. Depto Epidemiologia e Saúde Pública, Instituto de Veterinária, Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro, Seropédica, RJ 23890-000, Brazil. E-mail: adivaldo@ufrrj.br The cinetic of growth of Borrelia burgdorferi was studied during a 3-month period, using the following 8 culture media: (1) rabbit serum BSK, (2) swine serum BSK, (3) swine serum BSK+5 fluorouracil, (4) PMR, (5) CTB, (6) Dubos, (7) Brucella broth and (8) BHI. All media were prepared aseptically and were maintained in culture tubes of 10 ml capacity. For each medium, the inoculum was standardized to contain initially 102 spirochetes for each 0.1 ml of culture. The growth was monitorized by counting the total number of spirochetes in 0.1ml of medium in a dark field microscope, using a 10x30 mm cover slip. For the first 12 days, counting was done each 24 hours, and afterwards once a week during 14 weeks. There occurred growth of B. burgdorferi in all tested media, with the best performance of three of them: BSK with rabbit serum, BSK swine serum + 5 fluorouracil, and CTB medium. Growth of B. burgdorferi was seen from the 4th week on, reaching its maximum within 8-12 weeks, depleting the culture medium after this time. Cystic forms of B. burgdorferi were observed with all tested media.
