Anti-glutathione S-transferase omega 1-1 (GSTO1-1) antibodies are increased during acute and chronic inflammation in humans.

Clin Exp Immunol 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Translational Research NTMC, University of Pisa, Italy.

Glutathione S-transferase omega-1 (GSTO1-1) is a cytosolic enzyme involved in the modulation of critical inflammatory pathways as well as in cancer progression. Auto-antibodies against GSTO1-1 were detected in serum of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and were proposed as potential biomarkers in the early detection of the disease. Our data demonstrate that anti-GSTO1-1 antibodies can be found also in different types of inflammatory diseases, such as autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis and infectious SARS-CoV-2 and trichinellosis.

A Trichinella spiralis new born larvae-specific protein, Ts-NBL1, interacts with host's cell vimentin.

Parasitol Res 2022 May 23;121(5):1369-1378. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

UMR BIPAR, Anses, Laboratoire de Santé Animale, INRAE, Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire d'Alfort, Maisons-Alfort, France.

The parasitic nematode Trichinella has a special relationship with its host as it has a unique intracellular location within the feeder cell which is a structure derived from skeletal muscle fiber. It has been proposed that "parakines" secreted by Trichinella larvae serve as messengers to implement communication between the parasite and the muscle cells through a molecular cross-talk to ensure permanent coexistence within the host. The Ts-NBL1 protein is considered to be a potential key "parakine" involved in the early invasion of the muscle fiber and its transformation into a feeder cell during Trichinella spiralis infection.

Proteases secreted by Trichinella spiralis intestinal infective larvae damage the junctions of the intestinal epithelial cell monolayer and mediate larval invasion.

Vet Res 2022 Mar 7;53(1):19. Epub 2022 Mar 7.
