10 Advances in cancer therapy have improved survival rates; however primary ovarian failure and infertility can be major side effects of chemotherapy in childhood and adult female cancer patients. The associated threat on fertility in patients of reproductive age is often as devastating a psychological factor as the cancer diagnosis itself. In females, localized radiation treatment or systemic chemotherapy with alkylating agents can lead to chemotherapy-induced amenorrhea (CIA) and premature menopause through direct effects on primordial follicle (PMF) pools. Cyclophosphamide (CY), as a mainstay in breast cancer treatment, is most commonly implicated in decreasing ovarian function through direct reduction in PMF pools ( ). CY, a bifunctional alkylating agent, is also given for treatment of multiple other cancers, lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune problems with obvious impact on the child bearing decisions of premenopausal women. Current measures to address chemotherapy-induced infertility involve cryopreservation of ovarian tissues: embryo freezing, oocyte tissue freezing and oocyte freezing ( ). Our AIMS will address an alternative approach for maintenance of ovarian reserve following CY exposure based on transcriptional activation of Foxo3a by a specific anti-metabolite, 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) as adjuvant therapy. Studies in animal models have established that Foxo3a serves as a critical brake for the activation/transition from primordial to primary follicle. Foxo3a -/- mice exhibit a distinctive ovarian phenotype of global follicular activation leading to a phenotype indicative of primary ovarian failure and premature menopause. Similarly, female transgenic animals specifically designed to over-express constitutively active Foxo3a in oocytes were infertile caused by retarded oocyte growth and follicular development, and anovulation. Our data demonstrate that Foxo3a induction by 2-DG exposure mimics this transgenic model preserving the ovarian reservoir of primordial follicles. The goals of our AIMS are to evaluate whether 2-DG pretreatment prior to CY exposure can maintain ovarian reserve and thus prevent the fertility issues that haunt premenopausal women facing cancer or systemic lupus treatment. Hypothesis I: 2-DG induces ovarian Foxo3a gene expression maintaining ovarian reserve. AIM IA: To determine both an effective concentration of 2-DG for preserving PMF and timing for pretreatment, female mouse cohorts will be exposed daily to PBS or dose-escalating 2-DG levels for 1, 2 and 4 weeks. Body weight will be evaluated daily along with effects on estrous cycle with vaginal smears. At termination, serum estradiol, LH, FSH, inhibin B, and anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) will be evaluated. AIM IB: One ovary from the animals in AIM IA will be examined histologically for ovarian follicle numbers (total and follicle classes). To address underlying mechanisms, immunohistochemistry will be used for Foxo3a, relevant signaling molecules, phosphorylated histone H2AX, as well as TUNEL analysis. AIM IC: The contra lateral ovary will also be employed to address mechanism using realtime RTPCR and immunoblot analysis for Foxo3a and relevant target/signaling genes. Hypothesis II: 2-DG induction of ovarian Foxo3a gene expression will prevent CY induced reduction in PMF pools. AIM IIA: To demonstrate efficacy of 2-DG in preserving PMF pools in reproductive competent mice following CY treatment, groups mice will be pretreated (1-4 weeks, dose and duration determined in AIM I) with daily IP injection of either PBS or 2-DG alone. A week prior to end of the 2-DG treatment, separate groups will receive a single injection at two CY concentrations in combination with PBS or 2-DG. Groups from each cohort will be studied at 1, 3 and 6 weeks after CY injection as described in AIM IA-C. AIM IIB: To address the consequences of successive CY treatments more analogous to the multiple regimes employed in humans, AIM IIA will be repeated with the inclusion of two successive injections of CY separated by one week. The total doses and duration will be identical to AIM IIA, with groups from each cohort studied, as described in AIM IA-C, at 1, 3 and 6 weeks after the last CY injection. Hypothesis III: 2-DG treatment will preserve fertility and maintain reproductive outcome following CY treatment in young and perimenopausal mice. AIM IIIA: To demonstrate the ability of 2-DG to preserve fertility in young, reproductive competent mice following CY treatment, the protocol in AIM IIA will be repeated with mice using the most effective CY concentration. Mice will be then be successively mated to address reproductive outcome and analyzed as in AIM IA-C after final mating. AIM IIIB: To address the ability of 2-DG to preserve fertility in "perimenopausal" mice, 6-8 month old mice following CY treatment will be treated as described in AIM IIIA to address reproductive outcome.

12 A. Specific Aims The spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a diverse group of disorders leading to death of neurons in the cerebellum, brainstem and cerebral cortex. Identification of SCA mutations has led to novel insights into cerebellar cell death in particular and neuronal death in general. Mutations identified in the last decade have occurred in a diverse set of genes giving rise to new and in part mutually exclusive hypotheses regarding neuronal death in these diseases. We have identified mutations in the KCNC3 (Kv3.3) gene, which encodes a voltage-gated potassium channel, as causative for SCA13. Mutations in this gene have now been identified in two large ataxia kindreds. This proposal aims to test three hypotheses. 1) The Filipino and French families are affected by SCA13 and represent a unique phenotype requiring definitive characterization. KCNC3 mutations combine neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative phenotypes. 2) The R420H Filipino mutation engenders a dominant negative effect on KCNC3 channel function that may be the result of aberrant channel trafficking. 3) The KCNC3 mutation is likely the cause of ataxia in uncharacterized SCA patients and specific mutations are reflected by particular phenotypes. Specific Aim I: Phenotypic characterization of SCA13. Detailed characterization and refinement of the phenotype remains an important component in defining the clinical correlation to the described molecular pathology. This is particularly relevant in that the two mutations identified thus far exact profoundly different effects at the cellular level. Concomitant with this observation is the contrasting phenotypes arising from mutations in the same gene. Despite sharing ataxia and incoordination, preliminary studies suggest differences regarding age-of-onset, presence of seizures, and cognitive impairment. Increased precision in describing the phenotype will also further differentiate this ataxia from other SCA phenotypes. Additional clinical characteristics to be evaluated in affected individuals include: occulomotor pathology, myoclonus, chorea, dystonia, cognitive impairment, auditory pathology, pyramidal involvement, and peripheral neuropathy. Select patients will also have more formal studies including MR imaging, electroencephalography, auditory testing, nerve conduction velocities, and nystagmograms. At-risk individuals will be evaluated for subtle functional impairment and MR imaging abnormalities. Specific Aim II: Determining the nature of the R420H dominant negative effect. Preliminary voltage gating studies performed with R420H utilizing a Xenopus laevis oocyte expression system demonstrate a dominant negative effect of this allele on KCNC3 channel function. It is impossible to determine from these studies the nature of the dominant negative effect. Possibilities include: 1) aberrant mRNA processing and/or translation, 2) aberrant protein trafficking to the cell membrane, and 3) inherent channel dysfunction despite proper localization. In an effort to determine if the dominant negative effect results from KCNC3 trafficking errors, immunocytochemistry with an anti-KCNC3 antibody will be performed on COS-1 cells transiently transfected with R420H mutant constructs. The model system developed to determine the dominant negative effect of R420H will also be employed to evaluate additional KCNC3 mutations. Specific Aim III: Genotype/phenotype correlations. After gene identification, we will analyze a large set of DNA samples for presence of mutations. To this end we will use our own DNA repository of familial and sporadic ataxia patients without known mutation and samples from a large number of collaborators in the US and Europe. Over three hundred samples are already in-hand. Phenotypes from mutation-positive patients will be analyzed for features described in aim 1, and newly discovered mutations will be evaluated as in aim II.
