Abstract: Background. The study is to explore the molecular mechanisms of the inflammation induced by β-amyloid (Aβ) in the tissue of cortex and hippocampus of mice. Methods. The tissue of cortex and hippocampus of mice, were exposed to Aβ1-42 with or without Pyrrolidinedithiocarbamate ammonium (PDTC), then Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα); Quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for IL-1β and TNFα mRNA, western blot analyses of IκBα and NF-κB p65. Results. PDTC inhibited the protein expression of IL-1β, TNFα, IL-1β and TNFα mRNA, inhibited the decreasion of IκBα in the cytoplasm, and also inhibited elevation of NF-κB p65 in the nucleus in Aβ-stimulated tissue of cortex and hippocampus of mice. Conclusion. Our findings suggest that the IL-1β, TNFα protein and mRNA were induced by Aβ via the NF-κB signal pathway in the tissue of cortex and hippocampus of mice.
