Delayed neuronal death is associated with neurological deficits and mortality after traumatic brain injury (TBI), where post-synaptic density (PSD) proteins are thought to play key roles. The immediate-early gene (IEG) coded protein Arc is a brain-specific PSD protein that controls synaptic plasticity and learning behaviors. In this study, we investigated the expression and biological function of Arc in neuronal death after TBI in an in vitro model mimicked by traumatic neuronal injury (TNI) in cortical neurons. TNI caused a temporal increase of Arc expression at 3 and 6 h. Knockdown of Arc expression using small interfering RNA (Si-Arc-3) promoted TNI-induced cytotoxicity and apoptosis. The results of western blot showed that Si-Arc-3 transfection further enhanced the activation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-associated factors, including glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78), C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP) and caspase-12 after TNI. In addition, knockdown of Arc significantly increased expression of (receptor-interacting protein kinase 1) RIP1 and the number of necroptotic cells, which were apparently prevented by necrostatin-1 (Nec-1). The results of immunostaining and western blot showed that knockdown of Arc activated the metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 (mGluR1) and intracellular Ca2+ release in neurons. Mechanistically, the Si-Arc-3-induced activation of ER stress-associated factors, RIP1 expression, apoptosis, and necroptosis were partially reversed by the mGluR1 antagonist AIDA. In summary, our data suggest that silence of Arc expression aggravates neuronal death after TNI by promoting apoptosis and necroptosis. These data support for the first time that Arc may represent a novel candidate for therapies against TBI.
