Article Title: ASIC1a senses lactate uptake to regulate metabolism in neurons
Figure Lengend Snippet: ASIC1a mediates L -lactate-induced increase in mitochondrial respiration and suppresses mitochondrial ROS production . Seahorse analysis (see Materials and Methods) was used to monitor mitochondrial respiration (OCR) with sequential additions of oligomycin (1 μM), FCCP (1 μM) + sodium pyruvate (5 mM), and a mix of rotenone/antimycin A (Ro/AA, 0.5 μM each), as indicated by the arrowheads, in media that contained or not D-, or L-lactate (5 mM); (A) Representative OCR plots of WT neurons in regular medium that contained no lactate (Ctrl) or the indicated lactate isomer and CIN4; (B) Quantification of maximal respiration as measured in (A) of WT neurons in regular medium (n = 6), and the medium that contained D- (n = 6) or L-lactate (n = 6), or L-lactate plus CIN4 (n = 6); (C) Representative OCR plots of KO neurons in regular medium or medium that contained the indicated lactate isomer and CIN4; (D) Quantification of maximal respiration as measured in (C) of KO in regular medium (Ctrl, n = 6) and media that contained the indicated D-lactate (n = 6), L-lactate (n-6), and L-lactate + CIN4 (n = 6); (E) Representative OCR plots of WT and KO neurons in L -lactate containing medium; (F) Quantification of maximal respiration as measured in (E) of WT (n = 6) and KO (n = 6) neurons; (G) Representative OCR plots of WT and KO neurons in L-lactate/CIN4 containing medium (n = 6); (H) Quantification of maximal respiration as measured in (G) of WT and KO neurons in L -lactate/CIN4 containing medium (n = 6 for each); (I) Representative RoGFP fluorescence traces for redox changes in response to L-lactate, H 2 O 2 and DTT added in the Ringer's solution in WT neurons untreated and treated with PcTX1; (J) Quantification of R/R 0 (480/405) at 500s after the addition of L-lactate (100s) as in (I) for WT neurons untreated (n = 9) and treated with PcTX1 (n = 7); (K) Schematic presentation of suggested pathway linking L-lactate to ASIC1a.

Article Snippet: 4.4 Fluorescence imaging Experiments done on WT neurons, untreated or treated with PcTX1 (Alomone labs, #STP200), were performed using the imaging system consisted of an Axiovert 100 inverted microscope (Zeiss), Polychrome V monochromator (TILL Photonics, Planegg, Germany) and a SensiCam cooled charge-coupled device (PCO, Kelheim, Germany).
