Macrophages promote both injury and repair after myocardial infarction, but discriminating functions within mixed populations remains challenging. Here we used fate mapping, parabiosis and single-cell transcriptomics to demonstrate that at steady state, TIMD4LYVE1MHC-IICCR2 resident cardiac macrophages self-renew with negligible blood monocyte input. Monocytes partially replaced resident TIMD4LYVE1MHC-IICCR2 macrophages and fully replaced TIMD4LYVE1MHC-IICCR2 macrophages, revealing a hierarchy of monocyte contribution to functionally distinct macrophage subsets. Ischemic injury reduced TIMD4 and TIMD4 resident macrophage abundance, whereas CCR2 monocyte-derived macrophages adopted multiple cell fates within infarcted tissue, including those nearly indistinguishable from resident macrophages. Recruited macrophages did not express TIMD4, highlighting the ability of TIMD4 to track a subset of resident macrophages in the absence of fate mapping. Despite this similarity, inducible depletion of resident macrophages using a Cx3cr1-based system led to impaired cardiac function and promoted adverse remodeling primarily within the peri-infarct zone, revealing a nonredundant, cardioprotective role of resident cardiac macrophages.

Tissue Resident CCR2- and CCR2+ Cardiac Macrophages Differentially Orchestrate Monocyte Recruitment and Fate Specification Following Myocardial Injury.

Circ Res 2019 01;124(2):263-278

From the Department of Medicine (G.B., A.B., A.L. Koenig, I.L., J.M., B.I., C.W., A. Kovacs, K.J.L.), Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.

Rationale: Recent advancements have brought to light the origins, complexity, and functions of tissue-resident macrophages. However, in the context of tissue injury or disease, large numbers of monocytes infiltrate the heart and are thought to contribute to adverse remodeling and heart failure pathogenesis. Little is understood about the diversity of monocytes and monocyte-derived macrophages recruited to the heart after myocardial injury, including the mechanisms that regulate monocyte recruitment and fate specification.

Differential contribution of monocytes to heart macrophages in steady-state and after myocardial infarction.

From the Center for Systems Biology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston (T.H., G.C., P.D., H.B.S., M.S., Y.I., Y.S., N.D.S., F.K.S., R.W., M.N.); Department of Drug Discovery and Development, Harrison School of Pharmacy, Auburn University, AL (P.P.); Department of Cardiology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (A.M.v.d.L.); and Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA (R.W.).

Rationale: Macrophages populate the steady-state myocardium. Previously, all macrophages were thought to arise from monocytes; however, it emerged that, in several organs, tissue-resident macrophages may self-maintain through local proliferation.

Objective: Our aim was to study the contribution of monocytes to cardiac-resident macrophages in steady state, after macrophage depletion in CD11b(DTR/+) mice and in myocardial infarction. Read More

Rationale: Clinical benefits of reperfusion after myocardial infarction are offset by maladaptive innate immune cell function, and therapeutic interventions are lacking.

Objective: We sought to test the significance of phagocytic clearance by resident and recruited phagocytes after myocardial ischemia reperfusion.

Methods And Results: In humans, we discovered that clinical reperfusion after myocardial infarction led to significant elevation of the soluble form of MerTK (myeloid-epithelial-reproductive tyrosine kinase; ie, soluble MER), a critical biomarker of compromised phagocytosis by innate macrophages.

Spatio-temporal profile, phenotypic diversity, and fate of recruited monocytes into the post-ischemic brain.

Background: A key feature of the inflammatory response after cerebral ischemia is the brain infiltration of blood monocytes. There are two main monocyte subsets in the mouse blood: CCR2Ly6C "inflammatory" monocytes involved in acute inflammation, and CX3CR1Ly6C "patrolling" monocytes, which may play a role in repair processes. We hypothesized that CCR2Ly6C inflammatory monocytes are recruited in the early phase after ischemia and transdifferentiate into CX3CR1Ly6C "repair" macrophages in the brain. Read More
