Full size table Figure 1 A Pressure-volume curves showing comparable improved static compliance after treatment with Beta-Ac 0. B Lung gas volumes were increased significantly for Beta-Ac 0. Full size image Confocal microscopy of immunofluorescent staining of the fetal lung for the epithelial cell marker TTF-1, smooth muscle actin SMA , and type II alveolar cell markers pro-SPC, and ABCA3 showed no differences in the relative numbers of cells positive for these markers 5 days after treatment Supplemental Fig.

Further, there were no differences in the proportion of cells expressing the cell cycle marker Ki Transcriptomic effects of the clinical drug and Beta-Ac on the fetal lung RNA-sequencing analyses were performed on whole lung tissue from fetuses delivered 4 hours and 5 days after treatment with the clinical drug and 6 hours and 5 days after Beta-Ac Fig. Principal component analysis of transcriptomic changes separated animals 4 h after treatment with the clinical drug, 6 h after Beta-Ac, and control animals, with the animals treated with the clinical drug being the most distant from the others Fig.

In contrast, by 5 days the clinical drug and Beta-Ac overlapped Fig. Further, the correlation heatmap showed the most distinct transcriptome profiles for animals treated with the clinical drug 4 h prior to delivery Fig.

Figure 2 Transcriptomic analysis was performed on whole lung RNA 4 hours and 5 days after administration of the clinical drug, and 6 hours and 5 days after Beta-Ac 0. A At the early timepoint PCA separated the animals treated with the clinical drug at 4 h, Beta-Ac at 6 h, and controls. B At 5 days there is separation of control animals and overlap of animals treated with the clinical drug and Beta-Ac C Sample correlation heatmap displaying the similarity in gene expression profile.

Red color indicates increasing sample correlation and yellow color indicates decreasing sample correlation. Dendrogram clustering indicates the overall similarity of the samples. Both analyses showed separation of the clinical drug at 4 h and overlap of animals in the other treatment groups. At the times of high fetal plasma concentration the clinical drug caused differential expression of 1, genes while Beta-Ac caused the differential expression of only genes, of which were common to both treatments.

The common differentially expressed genes had similar magnitude of fold changes, with a Pearson correlation value of 0. In contrast, after 5 days the clinical drug and Beta-Ac differentially expressed a similar number of genes and genes, respectively , with genes differentially expressed in common. These commonly regulated genes at 5 days also had a similar magnitude of differential expression and highly correlated log fold-change values Fig.

By transcription factor binding site prediction and protein regulation or interaction prediction, several of the common top regulated genes at both timepoints have either a glucocorticoid receptor enhancer motif or are predicted to be regulated or interact with the NR3C1 receptor. A Top 20 up and down regulated genes relative to control and predicted regulation by the glucocorticoid receptor GR either by the presence of a GR motif or predicted interaction by ingenuity pathway analysis. Scatterplots of log fold-changes logFC of differentially expressed genes from.

B Beta-Ac 6 h and the clinical drug 4 h relative to control and C Beta-Ac 5d and the clinical drug 5d relative to control.

Most commonly differentially expressed genes had a similar direction and magnitude of changes. Full size image Genes differentially regulated by either of the ANS treatments were associated with several similar biological processes. Despite the similarities, there were large differences between biological processes and pathways that were differentially regulated in the lung by the clinical drug and Beta-Ac relative to control at the time of peak drug concentration in the fetal plasma Fig.

The clinical drug had larger inhibitory effects on immune system processes and development, including suppression of Th1, Th2 and Th17 lymphocyte differentiation, lymphocyte proliferation and activation, and cytokine signaling.

The clinical drug also modulated biological processes related to organ development and morphogenesis, which were only weakly associated with Beta-Ac treatment. Specifically, genes inhibited by the clinical drug were strongly enriched for angiogenesis and vascular development, endothelial cell proliferation, epithelial tube morphogenesis, and canonical Wnt signaling.

Genes differentially expressed by the clinical drug at the early time point may not be contributing to lung maturational responses as the 2 treatments resulted in similar improvement in lung gas volume and similar RNA profiles at 5 days. Figure 4 Gene set enrichment analysis comparing the clinical drug and Beta-Ac to control in the lung at time of peak Beta plasma concentration in the fetus.

Selected gene ontology terms are displayed with the bar chart representing log p-values. Positive p-values denote induced genes and negative p-values denote suppressed genes.

Genes suppressed by the clinical drug were more strongly associated with morphogenesis and developmental processes than genes suppressed by the Beta-Ac. Full size image Transcriptomic effects in the fetal hippocampus at 5 days To evaluate potentially toxic effects of ANS on the fetal brain development we compared the transcriptome of the fetal hippocampus 5 days after ANS treatment.

The principal component analysis and the correlation heatmap demonstrate that control animals cluster separately and distant from animals treated with the clinical drug Fig.

In contrast, animals treated with Beta-Ac 0. A 3-dimensional principal component analysis PCA was generated using log-transformed read counts. B Sample correlation heatmap displaying the similarity in gene expression profile. Both analyses showed separation of the control from animals treated with the clinical drug, while animals treated with Beta-Ac are interspersed between the controls and clinical treatment animals. C Top differentially induced and suppressed genes by the clinical drug in the hippocampus at 5 days.

Genes are ordered by magnitude of gold change; p values are adjusted by the Benjamin-Hochberg method. Full size image By differential expression analysis genes were differentially regulated induced, suppressed in the hippocampus by the clinical drug at 5 days compared to control Fig. There were no statistical differences between gene expression levels in the Beta-Ac treated animals compared to control.

Genes induced by the clinical drug were associated with the regulation of synapse maturation and semaphorin interactions, among others. Figure 6 Gene set enrichment analysis comparing differentially expressed genes for the clinical drug compared to control in the fetal hippocampus. There was no differential expression between Beta-Ac and control.

We report that fetal lung maturation in the primate can be achieved with a single weight-based dose of Beta-Ac that avoided fetal exposure to higher Beta levels from the Beta-P component of the clinical drug. Beta-Ac minimized early transcriptional changes in the fetal lung associated with immunity and morphogenesis, and at 5 days in the fetal hippocampus associated with nervous system development despite similar pulmonary maturation.

As even routine short-term use of corticosteroids is associated with risks, and complications are dose related 26 , the lowest fetal exposure sufficient to get the maturational benefit should be the goal. Different steroid formulations and dosing intervals are used around the world based on a total dose of 24 mg with minimal experimental or clinical data to support equivalency In the primate, treatments with Beta-Ac alone and the clinical drug resulted in similar mechanical induction of lung maturation as demonstrated by the pressure-volume curves and similar increase in the surfactant content, measured by the SatPC concentration in the BALF.

Increased surfactant production by the premature lung decreases the severity and incidence of RDS in preterm newborns. Moreover, there were no differences between the lung transcriptomes 5 days after treatment. Interestingly, the proportions of cells expressing the epithelial marker TTF-1 or the type 2 alveolar cell markers, ABCA3 and SPC, were similar among treatment groups and control at 5 days, suggesting that ANS induced transient changes in expression of mRNA but not persistent cellular differentiation to increase the number of surfactant producing cells.

This finding is consistent with the observation that the effects of ANS are transient and clinical trials have not consistently demonstrated benefit in decreasing RDS beyond 7 days after treatment 1 , The early transcriptomic changes in the lung 4 to 6 hours after ACS exposure offers new insight into the complex signaling mechanism of lung maturation induced by corticosteroids.

While most studies have focused on the effects of ACS on the endpoints of increased surfactant production and improved lung structure here we show that ACS has large effects on developmental, vascularization, cell signaling, and cell cycle pathways. These multiple effects likely all contribute to the improved lung function seen in preterm newborns after ACS treatment. These changes could be associated with continued structural and tissue water balance maturation.

However, most of the effects of ACS on gene expression had disappeared by 5 days. We provide new information that the high peak drug level from the clinical drug was associated with more suppression of lung immune responses, angiogenesis and developmental pathways based on transcriptome analyses.

While the clinical drug regulated a larger number of genes and pathways than Beta-Ac, the genes that were commonly differentially expressed had similar magnitudes of change, indicating that the additional steroid exposure may not be contributing to more maturational signaling.
