Unexpected Motherhood-Triggered Hearing Loss in the Two-Pore Channel (TPC) Mutant Mouse

Abstract : Calcium signaling is crucial for many physiological processes and can mobilize intracellular calcium stores in response to environmental sensory stimuli. The endolysosomal two-pore channel (TPC), regulated by the second messenger nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP), is one of the key components in calcium signaling. However, its role in neuronal physiology remains largely unknown. Here, we investigated to what extent the acoustic thresholds differed between the WT mice and the TPC KO mice. We determined the thresholds based on the auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) at five frequencies (between 4 and 32 kHz) and found no threshold difference between the WT and KO in virgin female mice. Surprisingly, in lactating mothers (at P9–P10), the thresholds were higher from 8 to 32 kHz in the TPC KO mice compared to the WT mice. This result indicates that in the TPC KO mice, physiological events occurring during parturition altered the detection of sounds already at the brainstem level, or even earlie
