Alarmins (IL-33, sST2, HMGB1, and S100B) as potential biomarkers for schizophrenia.

J Psychiatr Res 2021 Apr 29;138:380-387. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Experimental Immunology, Medical University of Lodz, Lodz, Poland.

There is growing evidence that immune/inflammatory processes are related to the etiology of schizophrenia. Danger-/damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), also called alarmins, are recognized as inflammatory mediators that play an important role in the development of many infection-induced or sterile inflammatory diseases. The importance of DAMPs particles in various mental disorders is still not clear. Read More

Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist inhibits aeroallergen-induced activation of ILC2 and neutrophilic airway inflammation in obese mice.

Allergy 2021 May 6. Epub 2021 May 6.

Division of Allergy, Pulmonary, and Critical Care Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Background: Obesity is a risk factor for the development of asthma. However, pharmacologic therapeutic strategies that specifically target obese asthmatics have not been identified.

PPARɣ drives IL-33-dependent ILC2 pro-tumoral functions.

Nat Commun 2021 05 5;12(1):2538. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Pathology and Immunology, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) play a critical role in protection against helminths and in diverse inflammatory diseases by responding to soluble factors such as the alarmin IL-33, that is often overexpressed in cancer. Nonetheless, regulatory factors that dictate ILC2 functions remain poorly studied. Here, we show that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) is selectively expressed in ILC2s in humans and in mice, acting as a central functional regulator. Read More

Na/H Exchanger Regulatory Factor 1 Mediates the Pathogenesis of Airway Inflammation in a Murine Model of House Dust Mite-Induced Asthma.

J Immunol 2021 May 5;206(10):2301-2311. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Physiology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI

Na/H exchanger regulatory factor 1 (NHERF1), a class I PDZ-binding protein, regulates G protein-coupled receptor signaling in some cell types. NHERF1 also functions as a scaffolding protein and activates non-G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathways, thereby contributing to the pathogenesis of various diseases. Although we have previously shown that NHERF1 regulates mast cell functions, there is little information regarding the role of NHERF1 in other immune cells. Read More

Downregulation of DUOX1 function contributes to aging-related impairment of innate airway injury responses and accelerated senile emphysema.

Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Division of Redox Biology and Pathology, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Larner College of Medicine, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, USAgrid.59062.38.

Aging is associated with a gradual loss of lung function due to increased cellular senescence, decreased regenerative capacity and impaired innate host defense. One important aspect of innate airway epithelial host defense to non-microbial triggers is the secretion of alarmins such as IL-33 and activation of type 2 inflammation, which were previously found to depend on activation of the NADPH oxidase (NOX) homolog DUOX1, and redox-dependent signaling pathways that promote alarmin secretion. Here, we demonstrate that normal aging of C57BL/6J mice resulted in markedly decreased lung innate epithelial type 2 responses to exogenous triggers such as the airborne allergen, D. Read More

IL-33-Induced Transcriptional Activation of LPIN1 Accelerates Breast Tumorigenesis.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Apr 30;13(9). Epub 2021 Apr 30.

College of Pharmacy, Chosun University, Gwangju 61452, Korea.

Phospholipids are crucial materials that are not only required for cell membrane construction but also play significant roles as signaling molecules. LPIN1 is an enzyme that displays phosphatidate phosphatase activity in the triglyceride and phospholipid synthesis pathway. Recent studies have shown that overexpression of LPIN1 is involved in breast tumorigenesis, but the underlying mechanism regulating LPIN1 expression has not been elucidated yet. Read More

Epithelial microRNA-206 targets CD39/extracellular ATP to upregulate airway IL-25 and TSLP in type 2-high asthma.

JCI Insight 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Department of Internal Medicine, Tongji Hospital, Wuhan, China.

The epithelial cell-derived cytokines IL-25, IL-33 and TSLP initiate type 2 inflammation in allergic diseases including asthma. However, the signaling pathway regulating these cytokines expression remains elusive. Since microRNAs are pivotal regulators of gene expression, we profiled microRNA expression in bronchial epithelial brushings from type 2-low and type 2-high asthma patients. Read More

A positive feedback loop reinforces the allergic immune response in human peanut allergy.

J Exp Med 2021 Jul 4;218(7). Epub 2021 May 4.

Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University and Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine, Stanford, CA.

Food allergies are a leading cause of anaphylaxis, and cellular mechanisms involving antigen presentation likely play key roles in their pathogenesis. However, little is known about the response of specific antigen-presenting cell (APC) subsets to food allergens in the setting of food allergies. Here, we show that in peanut-allergic humans, peanut allergen drives the differentiation of CD209+ monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DCs) and CD23+ (FcєRII) myeloid dendritic cells through the action of allergen-specific CD4+ T cells.

Interleukin-33-Dependent Accumulation of Regulatory T Cells Mediates Pulmonary Epithelial Regeneration During Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.

Front Immunol 2021 15;12:653803. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) triggered mostly by infection, is a syndrome that involves respiratory failure. ARDS induces strong local infiltration of regulatory T cells (Treg cells) in the lungs, and Treg cells were recently highlighted as being related to the repair of various tissue. However, at present, there is still a lack of adequate evidence showing the impact of Treg cells on pulmonary regeneration during ARDS. Read More

Pathobiology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, United States.

IL-33 is an alarmin required for resistance to the parasite , but its role in innate resistance to this organism is unclear. Infection with promotes increased stromal cell expression of IL-33 and levels of parasite replication correlate with release of IL-33 in affected tissues. In response to infection, a subset of innate lymphoid cells (ILC) emerges composed of IL-33R NK cells and ILC1s. Read More

Repeated exposure of house dust mite induces progressive airway inflammation in mice: Differential roles of CCL17 and IL-13.

Pharmacol Res Perspect 2021 May;9(3):e00770

Discovery Immunology, Janssen Research & Development, LLC, Spring House, PA, USA.

We conducted a systematic evaluation of lung inflammation indued by repeated intranasal exposure (for 10 consecutive days) to a human aeroallergen, house dust mite (HDM) in BALB/c mice. Peak influx of neutrophils, monocytes/lymphocytes, and eosinophils was observed in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) on days 1, 7 and 11, respectively, and normalized to baseline by day 21. Peak elevations of Th2, myeloid-derived cytokines/chemokines and serum IgE were seen both in BAL and lung tissue homogenates between days 7 and 11, and declined thereafter; however, IL-33 levels remained elevated from day 7 to day 21.

Regulation of Eosinophilia in Asthma-New Therapeutic Approaches for Asthma Treatment.

Cells 2021 Apr 6;10(4). Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON L8S 4K1, Canada.

Asthma is a complex and chronic inflammatory disease of the airways, characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, bronchospasm, and airway eosinophilia. As the pathophysiology of asthma is becoming clearer, the identification of new valuable drug targets is emerging. IL-5 is one of these such targets because it is the major cytokine supporting eosinophilia and is responsible for terminal differentiation of human eosinophils, regulating eosinophil proliferation, differentiation, maturation, migration, and prevention of cellular apoptosis.
