We studied neuronal death in the sensorimotor cortex, hippocampus, and supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus and dynamics of HER-2/neu expression in late ontogenesis in young and old transgenic HER-2/neu mice. Wild-type FVB/N mice served as the control. The intensity of apoptosis (TUNEL) and HER-2/neu expression (Western blotting) in the same brain regions were measured. HER-2/neu was detected in the cortex, hippocampus, and hypothalamus of transgenic and wild-type mice, and its expression increased with age. The effect of HER-2/neu on the intensity of cell death in various brain regions depended on the stage of ontogenesis and animal genotype. Enhanced expression of HER-2/neu determines low rate of cell death in the studied brain regions during pathological ageing.
