CCL2/CCR2 signaling elicits itch- and pain-like behavior in a murine model of allergic contact dermatitis.

Brain Behav Immun 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Anesthesiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06510, USA. Electronic address:

Spontaneous itch and pain are the most common symptoms in various skin diseases, including allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). The chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2, also referred to as monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1)) and its receptor CCR2 are involved in the pathophysiology of ACD, but little is known of the role of CCL2/CCR2 for the itch- and pain-behaviors accompanying the murine model of this disorder, termed contact hypersensitivity (CHS). C57BL/6 mice previously sensitized to the hapten, squaric acid dibutyl ester, applied to the abdomen were subsequently challenged twice with the hapten delivered to either the cheek or to the hairy skin of the hind paw resulting in CHS at that site.

The THP-1 cell toolbox: a new concept integrating the key events of skin sensitization.

Arch Toxicol 2019 Feb 26. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

UMR996-Inflammation, Chemokines and Immunopathology, INSERM, Univ Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay, 92296, Châtenay-Malabry, France.

According to the current scientific consensus, one in vitro test is insufficient to cover the key events (KE) defined by the adverse outcome pathway (AOP) for skin sensitization. To address this issue we combined different end points in the same cell line to cover all KEs defined by the skin sensitization AOP. Since dendritic cells (DC) play a key role in the sensitization phase leading to the development of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), we used THP-1 cells as a surrogate for DC. Read More

Mature IgD B cells maintain tolerance by promoting regulatory T cell homeostasis.

Nat Commun 2019 01 14;10(1):190. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Blood Research Institute, Versiti Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

A number of different B cell subsets have been shown to exhibit regulatory activity using a variety of mechanisms to attenuate inflammatory diseases. Here we show, using anti-CD20-mediated partial B cell depletion in mice, that a population of mature B cells distinguishable by IgD expression maintains tolerance by, at least in part, promoting CD4Foxp3 regulatory T cell homeostatic expansion via glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor ligand, or GITRL. Cell surface phenotyping, transcriptome analysis and developmental study data show that B cells expressing IgD at a low level (BD) are a novel population of mature B cells that emerge in the spleen from the transitional-2 stage paralleling the differentiation of follicular B cells.

Keratinocytes (KC) are the main cellular components of the stratum corneum that constitutes a solid physical skin barrier representing the first line of defense against pathogens. Moreover, KC are potent producers of inflammatory mediators and antimicrobial peptides (AMP) when activated through their pattern recognition receptors. In atopic dermatitis (AD) the protective skin barrier may be compromised due to barrier disruption, secondary infection and accelerated secretion of inflammatory cytokines which may also affect AMP expression in the skin.

Evaluation of the profile of inflammatory cytokines, through immunohistochemistry, in the skin of patients with allergic contact dermatitis to nickel in the acute and chronic phases.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Nov/Dec;93(6):829-835

Department of Dermatology, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Background: Allergic contact dermatitis to ion nickel (Ni+2) is an inflammatory dermatosis, common in industrialized countries. It involves the activation of nickel-specific T-cells, followed by proliferation and induction of a mixed profile of both proinflammatory and regulatory cytokines, suggesting that several T-cell subtypes (helper - Th and cytotoxic - Tc) are involved. A broader understanding of the cytokine profile may lead to new therapeutic approaches. Read More

Anti-inflammatory Effects of Variola Virus TNF Decoy Receptor in an Experimental Model of Contact Dermatitis.

Curr Pharm Biotechnol 2018 ;19(11):910-916

Federal State Budgetary Institution "Research Institute of Basic and Clinical Immunology", Novosibirsk, Russian Federation.

Background: Large DNA poxviruses encode a diverse family of secreted proteins that modulate host inflammatory and antiviral responses, in particular by inhibiting one of the key players of the mammalian immune system, the tumor necrosis factor (TNF).

Methods: We investigated the effects of a recombinant variola (smallpox) virus TNF-decoy receptor (VARV-CrmB) in a murine model of contact dermatitis. Our results demonstrate that the VARV-CrmB protein significantly reduces the 2,4-dinitrochlorbenzene (DNCB)-induced migration of skin leukocytes during the sensitization phase and suppresses ear oedema during the elicitation phase of the contact reaction.

Contact Dermatitis 2018 Dec 28;79(6):346-355. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

de Duve Institute, MEXP Unit, Université catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Allergic contact dermatitis has been described as a type IV reaction caused by antigen-specific T cells. Central roles for CD8 cytotoxic T cells as effector cells and CD4 T cells as regulatory cells have been suggested. T helper (Th) 2 and Th1 cytokines have been implicated; however, the nature of the allergen influences the Th response. Read More

MAVS deficiency induces gut dysbiotic microbiota conferring a proallergic phenotype.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2018 10 24;115(41):10404-10409. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Centre International de Recherche en Infectiologie, INSERM U1111-CNRS UMR5308, 69365 Lyon Cedex 07, France;

Prominent changes in the gut microbiota (referred to as "dysbiosis") play a key role in the development of allergic disorders, but the underlying mechanisms remain unknown. Study of the delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) response in mice contributed to our knowledge of the pathophysiology of human allergic contact dermatitis. Here we report a negative regulatory role of the RIG-I-like receptor adaptor mitochondrial antiviral signaling (MAVS) on DTH by modulating gut bacterial ecology. Read More

Antibody Light Chains Dictate the Specificity of Contact Hypersensitivity Effector Cell Suppression Mediated by Exosomes.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Sep 7;19(9). Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Department of Immunology, Jagiellonian University Medical College, 31-121 Krakow, Poland.

Antibody light chains (LCs), formerly considered a waste product of immunoglobulin synthesis, are currently recognized as important players in the activation of the immune response. However, very little is known about the possible immune regulatory functions of LCs. Recently, we reported that hapten-specific LCs coat miRNA-150-carrying exosomes produced by CD8+ suppressor T cells downregulating the contact hypersensitivity (CHS) reaction in an antigen-specific manner, in mice tolerized by intravenous administration of a high dose of hapten-coupled syngeneic erythrocytes.

Topical Plant Polyphenols Prevent Type I Interferon Signaling in the Skin and Suppress Contact Hypersensitivity.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Sep 6;19(9). Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Laboratory of Experimental Immunology, IDI-IRCCS, 00167 Rome, Italy.

Human keratinocytes were recently shown to respond to anti-EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) drugs with activation of an interferon-κ-driven autocrine loop, leading to enhanced expression of innate antiviral effectors and of the pro-inflammatory chemokines CXCL10 (C-X-C motif chemokine 10) and CCL2 (C-C motif ligand 2). Here we showed active type I interferon signaling in the skin lesions of cancer patients undergoing treatment with the anti-EGFR drug cetuximab. Strong nuclear positivity for Interferon Regulatory Factor 1 and phosphorylated Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 1, enhanced interferon-κ expression and CXCL10 was associated to the epidermal compartment.

Nur77 serves as a molecular brake of the metabolic switch during T cell activation to restrict autoimmunity.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2018 08 2;115(34):E8017-E8026. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Neurology with Institute of Translational Neurology, University Hospital Muenster, 48149 Muenster, Germany;

T cells critically depend on reprogramming of metabolic signatures to meet the bioenergetic demands during activation and clonal expansion. Here we identify the transcription factor Nur77 as a cell-intrinsic modulator of T cell activation. Nur77-deficient T cells are highly proliferative, and lack of Nur77 is associated with enhanced T cell activation and increased susceptibility for T cell-mediated inflammatory diseases, such as CNS autoimmunity, allergic contact dermatitis and collagen-induced arthritis.
