Stem Cell Institute at James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

Recent evidence indicates that extracellular adenosine triphosphate (eATP), as a major mediator of purinergic signaling, plays an important role in regulating the mobilization and homing of hematopoietic stem progenitor cells (HSPCs). In our previous work we demonstrated that eATP activates the P2X7 ion channel receptor in HSPCs and that its deficiency impairs stem cell trafficking. To learn more about the role of the P2X purinergic receptor family in hematopoiesis, we phenotyped murine and human HSPCs with respect to the seven P2X receptors and observed that, these cells also highly express P2X4 receptors, which shows ~50% sequence similarity to P2X7 subtypes, but that P2X4 cells are more sensitive to eATP and signal much more rapidly.

Inhibition of SGLT2 Rescues Bone Marrow Cell Traffic for Vascular Repair. Role of Glucose Control and Ketogenesis.

Diabetes 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Medicine, University of Padova, Padova, Italy

The mechanisms by which sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) improve cardiovascular outcomes in people with diabetes are incompletely understood. Recent studies show that SGLT2i may increase the levels of circulating cells with vascular regenerative capacity, at least in part by lowering glycemia. In this study, we used mice with streptozotocin-induced diabetes treated with the SGLT2i dapagliflozin at a dose that reduced glucose levels by 20%. Read More

Inhibition of CXCR4 ameliorates hypoxia-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension in rats.

Am J Transl Res 2021 15;13(3):1458-1470. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

Department of Anesthesiology, The Affiliated Wuxi People's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China.

Pulmonary vascular remodeling due to aberrant proliferation and migration of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) is the main characteristic of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). CXCR4 is a specific stem cell surface receptor of cytokine CXCL12 which could regulate homing of hematopoietic progenitor cells and their mobilization. There is evidence that bone marrow-derived CXCR4 proangiogenic cell accumulation take an important part in the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension; however, the underlying mechanisms still remain unknown.

Danger-associated molecular pattern molecules take unexpectedly a central stage in Nlrp3 inflammasome-caspase-1-mediated trafficking of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells.

Leukemia 2021 Feb 23. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Stem Cell Institute at James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

Like their homing after transplantation to bone marrow (BM), the mobilization of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) is still not fully understood, and several overlapping pathways are involved. Several years ago our group proposed that sterile inflammation in the BM microenvironment induced by pro-mobilizing agents is a driving force in this process. In favor of our proposal, both complement cascade (ComC)-deficient and Nlrp3 inflammasome-deficient mice are poor G-CSF and AMD3100 mobilizers. Read More

Extracellular Adenosine Triphosphate (eATP) and Its Metabolite, Extracellular Adenosine (eAdo), as Opposing "Yin-Yang" Regulators of Nlrp3 Inflammasome in the Trafficking of Hematopoietic Stem/Progenitor Cells.

Front Immunol 2020 29;11:603942. Epub 2021 Jan 29.

Stem Cell Institute at Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine and James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, KY, United States.

Nlrp3 inflammasome plays a pleiotropic role in hematopoietic cells. On the one hand, physiological activation of this intracellular protein complex is crucial to maintaining normal hematopoiesis and the trafficking of hematopoietic stem progenitor cells (HSPCs). On the other hand, its hyperactivation may lead to cell death by pyroptosis, and prolonged activity is associated with sterile inflammation of the BM and, as a consequence, with the HSPCs aging and origination of myelodysplasia and leukemia.

Stem Cell Rev Rep 2021 Jun 16;17(3):821-828. Epub 2020 Nov 16.

Stem Cell Institute at James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, 500 S. Floyd Street, Rm. 107, Louisville, KY, 40202, USA.

Evidence indicates that bone marrow (BM)-residing hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) are released into peripheral blood (PB) after administration of pro-mobilizing drugs, which induce a state of sterile inflammation in the BM microenvironment. In the reverse process, as seen after hematopoietic transplantation, intravenously injected HSPCs home and engraft into BM niches. Here again, conditioning for transplantation by myeloablative chemo- or radiotherapy induces a state of sterile inflammation that promotes HSPC seeding to BM stem cell niches. Read More

Pannexin-1 channel "fuels" by releasing ATP from bone marrow cells a state of sterile inflammation required for optimal mobilization and homing of hematopoietic stem cells.

Purinergic Signal 2020 09 12;16(3):313-325. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Center for Preclinical Studies and Technology, Department of Regenerative Medicine, Medical University of Warsaw, ul. Żwirki i Wigury 61, 02-091, Warsaw, Poland.

An efficient harvest of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) after pharmacological mobilization from the bone marrow (BM) into peripheral blood (PB) and subsequent proper homing and engraftment of these cells are crucial for clinical outcomes from hematopoietic transplants. Since extracellular adenosine triphosphate (eATP) plays an important role in both processes as an activator of sterile inflammation in the bone marrow microenvironment, we focused on the role of Pannexin-1 channel in the secretion of ATP to trigger both egress of HSPCs out of BM into PB as well as in reverse process that is their homing to BM niches after transplantation into myeloablated recipient. We employed a specific blocking peptide against Pannexin-1 channel and noticed decreased mobilization efficiency of HSPCs as well as other types of BM-residing stem cells including mesenchymal stroma cells (MSCs), endothelial progenitors (EPCs), and very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs).

The Nlrp3 inflammasome as a "rising star" in studies of normal and malignant hematopoiesis.

Leukemia 2020 06 20;34(6):1512-1523. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Stem Cell Institute at James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

Recent investigations indicate that hematopoiesis is coregulated by innate immunity signals and by pathways characteristic of the activation of innate immunity cells that also operate in normal hematopoietic stem progenitor cells (HSPCs). This should not be surprising because of the common developmental origin of these cells from a hemato/lymphopoietic stem cell. An important integrating factor is the Nlrp3 inflammasome, which has emerged as a major sensor of changes in body microenvironments, cell activation, and cell metabolic activity. Read More
