Multidrug-Resistant Evokes Differential Inflammatory Responses in Human Microglial and Retinal Pigment Epithelial Cells.

Increasing incidences of multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens causing endophthalmitis threaten our ability to treat this condition, and the modulation of inflammatory responses by MDR bacteria is not known. In this study, using human microglia and retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, we compare the inflammatory responses of sensitive (S-) and multidrug-resistant (MDR-) clinical isolates of . Infected cells were subjected to qPCR analysis, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and immunostaining to assess the expression of inflammatory mediators. Both microglia and RPE cells, challenged with S- and MDR-, induced a time-dependent expression of inflammatory cytokines. Significant differences were observed in expression levels of Toll-like receptors (TLR) TLR4, TLR5, and TLR9 in microglia cells challenged with MDR- vs. S-. Similarly, mRNA levels of interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, Interferon (IFN)-γ, and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 were also higher in MDR--infected cells. At protein levels, upregulation was observed for IL-10 ( = 0.004), IL-8 ( = 0.0006), IL-1β ( = 0.02), and Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) ( = 0.0006) in cells infected MDR- versus S- in both microglia and RPE cells; however, the response was delayed in RPE cells. Heatmap and STRING analysis highlighted the existence of a cross-talk between the inflammatory and cytokine-mediated signaling pathways. Our study highlights a differential inflammatory response evoked by MDR vs. sensitive pathogens in retinal cells during endophthalmitis.

Effects of leptin-modified human placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells on angiogenic potential and peripheral inflammation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) after X-ray radiation.

Combined radiation-wound injury (CRWI) is characterized by blood vessel damage and pro-inflammatory cytokine deficiency. Studies have identified that the direct application of leptin plays a significant role in angiogenesis and inflammation. We established a sustained and stable leptin expression system to study the mechanism. A lentivirus method was employed to explore the angiogenic potential and peripheral inflammation of irradiated human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Leptin was transfected into human placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells (HPMSCs) with lentiviral vectors. HUVECs were irradiated by X-ray at a single dose of 20 Gy. Transwell migration assay was performed to assess the migration of irradiated HUVECs. Based on the Transwell systems, co-culture systems of HPMSCs and irradiated HUVECs were established. Cell proliferation was measured by cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) assay. The secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines (human granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), interleukin (IL)-1α, IL-6, and IL-8) was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The expression of pro-angiogenic factors (vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF)) mRNA was detected by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) assay. Relevant molecules of the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signaling pathways were detected by western blot assay. Results showed that leptin-modified HPMSCs (HPMSCs/ leptin) exhibited better cell proliferation, migration, and angiogenic potential (expressed more VEGF and bFGF). In both the single HPMSCs/leptin and the co-culture systems of HPMSCs/leptin and irradiated HUVECs, the increased secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines (human GM-CSF, IL-1α, and IL-6) was associated with the interaction of the NF-κB and JAK/STAT signaling pathways. We conclude that HPMSCs/leptin could promote angiogenic potential and peripheral inflammation of HUVECs after X-ray radiation.

Evaluation of the effect of GM-CSF blocking on the phenotype and function of human monocytes.

Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a multipotent cytokine that prompts the proliferation of bone marrow-derived macrophages and granulocytes. In addition to its effects as a growth factor, GM-CSF plays an important role in chronic inflammatory autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Reports have identified monocytes as the primary target of GM-CSF; however, its effect on monocyte activation has been under-estimated. Here, using flow cytometry and ELISA we show that GM-CSF induces an inflammatory profile in human monocytes, which includes an upregulated expression of HLA-DR and CD86 molecules and increased production of TNF-α and IL-1β. Conversely, blockage of endogenous GM-CSF with antibody treatment not only inhibited the inflammatory profile of these cells, but also induced an immunomodulatory one, as shown by increased IL-10 production by monocytes. Further analysis with qPCR, flow cytometry and ELISA experiments revealed that GM-CSF blockage in monocytes stimulated production of the chemokine CXCL-11, which suppressed T cell proliferation. Blockade of CXCL-11 abrogated anti-GM-CSF treatment and induced inflammatory monocytes. Our findings show that anti-GM-CSF treatment induces modulatory monocytes that act in a CXCL-11-dependent manner, a mechanism that can be used in the development of novel approaches to treat chronic inflammatory autoimmune diseases.

Urokinase-type plasminogen activator protects human umbilical vein endothelial cells from apoptosis in sepsis.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) on cell viability, apoptosis, and inflammatory cytokine levels in septic human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) were added to construct septic HUVECs, then the septic HUVECs were treated by uPA, and cell viability, apoptosis, TNF-α, IL-6, GMCSF and uPAR levels were evaluated by CCK-8, AV/PI, qPCR, western blot and ELISA, respectively. Subsequently, uPA shRNA was transferred into septic HUVECs, and the cells viability, cell apoptosis and the expressions of TNF-α, IL-6, GMCSF, as well as uPAR were assessed by the same methods. uPA promoted viability while reducingapoptosis in septic HUVECs. However, uPA had no effect on the regulation of TNF-α or IL-6 expression in septic HUVECs. In addition, uPA elevated the expressions of GMCSF and uPAR in septic HUVECs. After the transfection of uPA shRNA, cell viability was decreased, apoptosis was enhanced, and GMCSF and uPAR expressions were reduced, while TNF-α or IL-6 expression did not vary in septic HUVECs. In conclusion, uPA promotes cell viability, represses apoptosis,and has no effect on regulating inflammatory cytokines in septic HUVECs.

Delayed neutrophil apoptosis in granulomatosis with polyangiitis: dysregulation of neutrophil gene signature and circulating apoptosis-related proteins.

: Neutrophil apoptosis is mandatory for resolving inflammation and is regulated by expression of pro- and anti-apoptotic genes. We studied neutrophils isolated from patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) to investigate apoptosis alterations and to identify transcriptional and circulating factors affecting this process.: We enrolled 36 patients (18 in active stage, 18 in remission) and 18 healthy controls. Circulating levels of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), macrophage migration inhibitory factor, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, interferon-γ, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, intercellular adhesion molecule-1, platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1, soluble Fas (sFas), sFas ligand, survivin, and pentraxin-3 (PTX3) were evaluated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay/Luminex; circulating apoptotic neutrophils by flow cytometry; and apoptosis-related gene transcripts by real-time polymerase chain reaction.: Patients had decreased fractions of circulating apoptotic neutrophils and delayed neutrophil apoptosis was present in vitro. Circulating levels of TNF-α, GM-CSF, sFas, and PTX3 were higher in GPA. Delayed neutrophil apoptosis was accompanied by decreased mRNA of pro-apoptotic genes and transcription factors () and increased anti-apoptotic and mRNA. TNF-α and sFas levels correlated with circulating apoptotic neutrophils and expression of apoptosis genes. Stimulation with TNF-α of neutrophils from controls significantly down-regulated and expression.: Circulating neutrophils in GPA have anti-apoptotic phenotype involving both intrinsic and extrinsic pathways of apoptosis. This is accompanied by increased levels of circulating pro-survival factors (GM-CSF, TNF-α, sFas), independent of disease activity. Anti-apoptotic phenotype of neutrophils in GPA is reproduced by exposure to low concentrations of TNF-α.
