ABSTRACT

Aim To investigate the regulation and mechanism of inflammatory cytokines interleukin 1β (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) on the drug metabolism enzyme cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1) during immune-mediated liver injury. Methods By injection of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin(BCG, 125 mg·kg-1) prepared rat model of immunological liver damage. To detection of CYP2E1 probe drug chlorzoxazone in blood concentration changes of rats over time reflects its metabolic activity by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) assay. The changes of IL-1β and TNF-α in liver tissue of rats were detected by ELISA. The expression of CYP2E1 protein was determined by Western blot analysis. Results After 14 days of BCG injection of rats, a large number of mononuclear cells and lymphocytes infiltrated around the liver parenchyma and the portal area, resulting in a large number of granuloma masses with different sizes and diffuse distribution, IL-1β and TNF-α high expression (P < 0.01), CYP2E1 metabolic activity and protein expression were significantly decreased (P < 0.05). The protein content of CYP2E1 was significantly negatively correlated with IL-1β (r=0.222, P=0.027). Activation of PDTC-mediated nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) inhibited the high expression of IL-1β and TNF-α in liver tissue and slowed down the down-regulation of CYP2E1 metabolism and protein expression. Conclusions NF-κB may be involved in the regulation of CYP2E1 by regulating the inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and TNF-α.

ABSTRACT

 Aim To investigate the anti-inflammatory effect of salidroside on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced BV2 microglia and its mechanism. Methods The model of LPS-induced injury in BV2 microglia was established. The expression of cytokines IL-6, IL-1β and TNF-α mRNA was detected by qPCR, and the expression of Akt, p-Akt, nuclear protein NF-κB p50 protein was dectected by Western blot with different concentrations of salidroside treatment. The model was sequentially treated with PI3K inhibitor LY294002 for 30 min, and after the treatment of salidroside, the expressions of Akt, p-Akt, nuclear protein NF-κB p50, IL-6, IL-1β, TNF-α and other indicators were dectected by Western blot. Results Compared with model, salidroside reduced the expression of IL-6, IL-1β and TNF-α mRNA in BV2 microglia, improved the expression of p-Akt protein, and reduced the nuclear protein NF-κB p50. After the treatment of LY294002, salidroside had no obvious effect on the expression of p-Akt, nuclear protein NF-κB p50, IL-6, IL-1β. Conclusions Salidroside can inhibit LPS-induced BV2 microglia inflammatory reaction by activating PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, promoting Akt phosphorylation, inhibiting NF-κB p50 nuclear transcription, and inhibiting cytokines.

ABSTRACT

Background & objectives: Scrub typhus is a chigger-borne disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. The immunological reactions to O. tsutsugamushi infection are not completely understood. In this study, we investigated the response of dendritic cells (DCs) to a major 56-kDa scrub typhus antigen Sta56. Methods: Monocyte-derived human DCs were incubated with different concentrations of recombinant Sta56 and analyzed for maturation based on phagocytic capacity, the ability to induce T-cell proliferation, expression of surface markers, cytokine secretion and activation of toll-like receptor (TLR)-dependent signalling pathways. Results: Treatment of DCs with Sta56 induced cell surface expression of CD80, CD83, CD86 and MHC Class II increased the production of interleukin-12 (IL-12) p40, IL-12 p70 and IL-10 and decreased DC phagocytic capacity. Furthermore, Sta56 increased the ability of DCs to activate T-cell proliferation and interferon-? secretion. TLR4-specific antibodies neutralized Sta56-elicited effects on DC maturation, suggesting direct interaction between Sta56 and TLR4. Moreover, Sta56 activated nuclear factor (NF)-?B and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling as evidenced by decrease in Sta56-induced cytokine production and surface marker expression by specific inhibitors helenalin and SB203580, respectively, and increase in I?B? and p38 phosphorylation and NF-?B-DNA binding. Interpretation & conclusions: Our results showed that the surface antigen of O. tsutsugamushi activated DCs through interaction with TLR4 and activation of MAPK and NF-?B signalling, suggesting Sta56 as a potential candidate molecule for the development of vaccine against scrub typhus.

ABSTRACT

Background: Diabetic nephropathy is a leading cause of end-stage renal failure worldwide. Purpose: The methanol leaf extract of Vernonia amygdalina (MLVA) was thus investigated for its nephroprotective effects in diabetes.Materials and Methods: Diabetes was induced in male Wistar rats by a single intraperitoneal (I.P) injection of a freshly prepared solution of Alloxan monohydrate (100 mg/kg). Forty-eight hours after alloxan administration, rats with fasting blood glucose levels of 200 mg/dl and above were used for the study. Animals were grouped into five (A-E) of nine animals each. Group A was non-diabetic non treated control; Group B animals were the diabetic untreated control rats while groups C, D and E animals were diabetic and treated with glibenclamide, MLVA 200 mg/kg and MVLA 400 mg/kg respectively. Biochemical changes were evaluated by measuring the serum markers of kidney damage (creatinine and blood urea nitrogen). Markers of oxidative stress and antioxidant activities were measured in renal tissues. Histopathological and immunohistochemical changes were also evaluated.Results: Four-week administration of MLVA produced significant (p<0.05) decrease in serum creatinine, urea, and oxidative markers but it caused a significant increase in enzymic and nonenzymic antioxidant as well as downregulation of Nuclear Factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-?B) and upregulation of B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2).Conclusion: MLVA ameliorates diabetic nephropathy through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic effects

ABSTRACT

Cocaine is a widely used drug and its abuse is associated with physical, psychiatric and social problems. Abnormalities in newborns have been demonstrated to be due to the toxic effects of cocaine during fetal development. The mechanism by which cocaine causes neurological damage is complex and involves interactions of the drug with several neurotransmitter systems, such as the increase of extracellular levels of dopamine and free radicals, and modulation of transcription factors. The aim of this review was to evaluate the importance of the dopaminergic system and the participation of inflammatory signaling in cocaine neurotoxicity. Our study showed that cocaine activates the transcription factors NF-κB and CREB, which regulate genes involved in cellular death. GBR 12909 (an inhibitor of dopamine reuptake), lidocaine (a local anesthetic), and dopamine did not activate NF-κB in the same way as cocaine. However, the attenuation of NF-κB activity after the pretreatment of the cells with SCH 23390, a D1 receptor antagonist, suggests that the activation of NF-κB by cocaine is, at least partially, due to activation of D1 receptors. NF-κB seems to have a protective role in these cells because its inhibition increased cellular death caused by cocaine. The increase in BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) mRNA can also be related to the protective role of both CREB and NF-κB transcription factors. An understanding of the mechanisms by which cocaine induces cell death in the brain will contribute to the development of new therapies for drug abusers, which can help to slow down the progress of degenerative processes.

ABSTRACT

A sepse é a principal causa de morte em unidades de terapia intensiva (UTIs) no mundo. A reduzida disponibilidade do aminoácido mais abundante do organismo, a glutamina contribui para o complicado estado catabólico da sepse. No presente estudo investigamos os efeitos da suplementação oral com L-glutamina e L-alanina (GLN+ALA), ambos na norma livre e como dipeptídeo, L-alanil-L-glutamina (DIP), sobre o eixo glutamina-glutationa (GSH), sistema imune, inflamação, proteínas de choque térmico (HSPs) e expressão de genes envolvidos com vias de sinalização proteica em animais endotoxêmicos. Camundongos C57/B6 foram submetidos à endotoxemia (Escherichia coli LPS, 5 mg.kg-1, grupo LPS) e suplementados por 48 horas com L-glutamina (1 g.kg-1) e L-alanina (0,61 g.kg-1, grupo GLN+ALA-LPS) ou 1,49 g.kg-1 de DIP (grupo DIP-LPS). A endotoxemia promoveu depleção da concentração de glutamina no plasma (71%), músculo esquelético (50%) e fígado (49%), quando comparado ao grupo CTRL, sendo restauradas nos grupos DIP-LPS e GLN+ALA-LPS (P<0,05), fato que atenuou a redução da GSH e o estado redox (taxa GSSG/GSH) em eritrócitos circulantes, musculo e fígado (P<0,05). A suplementação em animais endotoxêmicos resultou em uma upregulation dos genes GSR, GPX1 e GCLC no músculo e fígado. A concentração das citocinas plasmáticasTNF-α, IL-6, IL-1ß e IL-10 foi atenuada pelas suplementações, bem como a expressão de mRNAs envolvidos com a resposta inflamatória, ativadas pela via do NF-κB(P<0,05). Concomitantemente, verificou-se aumento da capacidade proliferativa de linfócitos T e B circulantes nos grupos GLN+ALA-LPS e DIP-LPS. A expressão de mRNAs e a concentração de HSPs no tecido muscular foi restabelecida pelas suplementações, contudo, a expressão mRNAs relacionados às vias de síntese e degradação proteica foi somente estimulada no tecido hepático(P<0,05). Os resultados do presente estudo demonstram que a suplementação por via oral com GLN+ALA ou DIP podem ser utilizados clinicamente como métodos nutricionais em reverter o quadro de depressão da disponibilidade de glutamina corporal da sepse induzida por LPS, tendo impacto no eixo glutamina-glutationa, sistema imune e inflamatório


Sepsis is the leading cause of death inintensive care units (ICUs) in the world.The availability ofthe most abundant amino acid in the body, glutamine, is reduced in this situation, fact that contribute to the complicated catabolic state of sepsis. In the present study, we investigated the effects of oral supplementation with L-glutamine and L-alanine (GLN+ALA), both in their free form and as a dipeptide, L-alanyl-L-glutamine (DIP) on glutamine-glutathione axis (GSH), immune and inflammatory system, heat shock proteins (HSPs) expression and gene expressions involved in protein signaling pathways during endotoxemia. C57/B6 mice were subjected to endotoxemia (Escherichia coli LPS, 5 mg.kg-1, LPS group) and supplemented for 48 hours with L-glutamine (1 g.kg-1) plus L-alanine(0.61 g.kg-1, GLN+ALA-LPS group) or 1.49 g.kg-1of DIP (DIP-LPS group). Endotoxemia promoted depletion glutamine concentration in plasma (71%), skeletal muscle (50%) and liver (49%), when compared to the CTRL group, and was restored in the DIP-LPS e GLN+ALA-LPS (P<0.05), fact that attenuate the reduction of GSH and the redox state (GSSG/GSH rate) in circulating erythrocytes, liver and muscle (P<0.05). Supplementations in endotoxemic mice resulted in upregulation of GSR, GCLC and GPX1 genes in muscle and liver. Plasma concentration of TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1ß and IL-10 were attenuated by supplementation as well as the expression of mRNAs involved in the inflammatory response, activated by NFκ-B pathway (P <0.05). At the same time, high proliferative capacity of circulating T and B lymphocytes GLN+ALA-LPS e DIP-LPS were observed. HSPs (protein and mRNAs) and in muscle were restored by the supplements, however, the mRNAs expression related to the synthesis and degradation of protein pathways was only stimulated in the liver (P <0.05). Our results demonstrate that oral supplementation with GLN+ALA or DIP can be used as clinically nutritional methods to reverse the depression of body glutamine availability during sepsis induced by LPS, impacting on the glutamine-glutathione axis, immune and inflammatory system

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the effects of transfection of antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (ASODN) of nuclear transcription factor κB (NF-κB) on tumorigenesis and angiogenesis of human gastric cancer cell line SGC7901 in nude mice. Methods: ASODN targeted P65 promoter region of NF-κB was designed, synthesized, and transfected into gastric cancer cell line SGC-7901. Fluorescent staining was used to observe transfection efficacy. The growth-inhibiting rate of cells was measured by MTT assay in vitro. The subcutaneous xenograft model of human gastric cancer cells was established in nude mice and the tumor growth curve was observed. The microvessel density (MVD) was detected by HE staining, and the apoptotic index (AI) was quantitatively determined by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine triphosphate fluorescence nick end labeling (TUNEL). Results: The cell proliferation was significantly inhibited in P65 ASODN-transfected group in vitro (P < 0.05). In vivo tumor formation test showed that the tumor volume in nude mice in ASODN group was obviously smaller than that of other groups (P < 0.05) and the AI was significantly higher than that of other groups (P < 0.001). The MVD in ASODN group was markedly lower than that of other groups (P < 0.01). Conclusion: Transfection of P65 ASODN significantly inhibited the proliferation of SGC-7901 cells in vitro. The mechanism may be related to induction of cell apoptosis and inhibition of angiogenesis caused by P65 ASODN.

ABSTRACT

Progesterone is an essential hormone for pregnancy maintenance. This hormone acts by binding to its intracellular receptor or by rapid non-genomic actions to regulate a wide variety of biological functions in the feto-placental unit. Progesterone regulates blastocyst implantation and placental development by inducing immunosupression through type Th2 cytokines secretion. This review summarizes current research about the role of progesterone as critical regulator of expression and secretion of cytokines by T-cell and other placental cells.


La progesterona es una hormona esteroide muy versátil y esencial para el mantenimiento del embarazo. El principal mecanismo de acción de la progesterona es el clásico, vía receptor intracelular, regulando diversas funciones, aspectos celulares y vías moleculares implicadas en el proceso de la implantación. Asimismo existen mecanismos adicionales que no dependen de la interacción del complejo hormona receptor con la maquinaria transcripcional y que son capaces de regular rápidamente cascadas de señalización que determinarán la respuesta de la célula. En particular se ha demostrado que la progesterona ejerce efectos inmunosupresores durante la gestación al favorecer la secreción de citocinas de tipo Th2 por los linfocitos T, evento importante para regular el sistema inmunológico materno y evitar el rechazo de la placenta. El objetivo de esta revisión se centra en analizar la influencia de la progesterona en la interfase materno-fetal sobre la expresión y secreción de citocinas por las células T y no T como es el caso del trofoblasto.

ABSTRACT

Objective To study the relationship among apoptosis,NF-KB activation and uPA expres- sion in human colon carcinoma cell line HCTll6 induced by 5-fluorouracil,and to observe the effect of in- hibiting activity of NF-KB by PDTC on apoptosis as well as expression of uPA.Methods Cell apoptosis was analysed by Annexin V-FITC.Fluctuation of NF-KB and uPA was detected by semi-quantitative immuno- histochemistry.Results 5-fluorouracil could induce apoptosis and activate NF-KB.PDTC could significantly increase the apoptosis and suppress the activation of NF-KB induced by 5-fluorouracil.There was a positive correlation between the changes of uPA and NF-KB.Conclusion 5-fluorouracil could induce apoptosis,ac- tivate NF-KB and up-regulate expression of uPA of HCT116 cells.The mechanism of enhanced apoptosis by PDTC may be related to suppressing activation of NF-?B and down-regulating expression of uPA.
