A Novel OGR1 (GPR68) Inhibitor Attenuates Inflammation in Murine Models of Colitis.

Local extracellular acidification is associated with several conditions, such as ischemia, cancer, metabolic disease, respiratory diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Several recent studies reported a link between IBD and a family of pH-sensing G protein-coupled receptors. Our previous studies point to an essential role for OGR1 (GPR68) in the modulation of intestinal inflammation and fibrosis. In the current study, we evaluated the effects of a novel OGR1 inhibitor in murine models of colitis.

Extracellular acidity in tumor tissue upregulates programmed cell death protein 1 expression on tumor cells via proton-sensing G protein-coupled receptors.

Acidity in the tumor microenvironment has been reported to promote cancer growth and metastasis. In our study, we examined a potential relation between extracellular acidity and expression level of the immune checkpoint molecule programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-L1) in murine squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma cell lines. PD-L1 expression in the tumor cells was upregulated by culturing in a low pH culture medium. Tumor-bearing mice were allowed to ingest sodium bicarbonate, resulting in neutralization of acidity in the tumor tissue, a decrease in PD-L1 expression in tumor cells and suppression of tumor growth in vivo. Proton-sensing G protein-coupled receptors, T-cell death-associated gene 8 (TDAG8) and ovarian cancer G-protein-coupled receptor 1 (OGR1), were upregulated by low pH, and essentially involved in the acidity-induced elevation of PD-L1 expression in the tumor cells. Human head and neck SCC RNAseq data from the Cancer Genome Atlas also suggested a statistically significant correlation between expression levels of the proton sensors and PD-L1 mRNA expression. These findings strongly suggest that neutralization of acidity in tumor tissue may result in reduction of PD-L1 expression, potentially leading to inhibition of an immune checkpoint and augmentation of antitumor immunity.

Proton-Sensing GPCRs in Health and Disease.

The group of proton-sensing G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) consists of the four receptors GPR4, TDAG8 (GPR65), OGR1 (GPR68), and G2A (GPR132). These receptors are cellular sensors of acidification, a property that has been attributed to the presence of crucial histidine residues. However, the pH detection varies considerably among the group of proton-sensing GPCRs and ranges from pH of 5.5 to 7.8. While the proton-sensing GPCRs were initially considered to detect acidic cellular environments in the context of inflammation, recent observations have expanded our knowledge about their physiological and pathophysiological functions and many additional individual and unique features have been discovered that suggest a more differentiated role of these receptors in health and disease. It is known that all four receptors contribute to different aspects of tumor biology, cardiovascular physiology, and asthma. However, apart from their overlapping functions, they seem to have individual properties, and recent publications identify potential roles of individual GPCRs in mechanosensation, intestinal inflammation, oncoimmunological interactions, hematopoiesis, as well as inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Here, we put together the knowledge about the biological functions and structural features of the four proton-sensing GPCRs and discuss the biological role of each of the four receptors individually. We explore all currently known pharmacological modulators of the four receptors and highlight potential use. Finally, we point out knowledge gaps in the biological and pharmacological context of proton-sensing GPCRs that should be addressed by future studies.
