    • Rho-kinase signaling regulates important features of inflammatory reactions. Herein, we investigated the effect and mechanisms of action of the Rho-kinase inhibitor fasudil in endotoxemic liver injury. C57/BL/6 mice were challenged with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and D-galactosamine, with or without pretreatment with the Rho-kinase inhibitor fasudil. Six hours after endotoxin challenge, leukocyte-endothelium interactions in the hepatic microvasculature were studied by use of intravital fluorescence microscopy and tumor necrosis factor {alpha} (TNF-{alpha}); CXC chemokines as well as liver enzymes and apoptosis were determined. Administration of fasudil reduced LPS-induced leukocyte adhesion in postsinusoidal venules and sequestration in sinusoids. Moreover, we found that fasudil abolished extravascular infiltration of leukocytes as well as production of TNF-{alpha} and CXC chemokines in the liver of endotoxemic mice. Liver enzymes and hepatocellular apoptosis were markedly reduced, and sinusoidal perfusion was improved significantly in endotoxemic mice pretreated with fasudil. Our novel data document that fasudil is a potent inhibitor of endotoxin-induced expression of TNF-{alpha} and CXC chemokines as well as leukocyte infiltration and hepatocellular apoptosis in the liver. Based on the present findings, it is suggested that inhibition of the Rho-kinase signaling pathway may be a useful target in the treatment of septic liver injury.

  • Important role of CD18 in TNF-alpha-induced leukocyte adhesion in muscle and skin venules in vivo

    • OBJECTIVE: To examine the role of CD 18 in tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-induced leukocyte adhesion and extravasation in vivo. MATERIAL: Male wild-type (WT) and mutated mice with hypomorphic expression of CD 18. METHODS: Intravital microscopy was used to quantitate leukocyte-endothelium interactions provoked by TNF-alpha (0.5 microg) in the cremaster muscle and dorsal skin microcirculation. Tissue recruitment of leukocytes was evaluated in wholemounts of the cremaster muscle and in air pouches in the dorsal skin after TNF-alpha stimulation. RESULTS: TNF-alpha markedly increased venular leukocyte adhesion and recruitment in the cremaster muscle and skin in WT. Notably, in CD 18-targeted animals, leukocyte adhesion triggered by TNF-alpha challenge was significantly reduced by 58% and 72% in venules of the cremaster muscle and skin, respectively. Moreover, in CD18-mutants, tissue accumulation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) provoked by TNF-alpha in the muscle and skin was decreased by 84% and 70%, respectively. Interestingly, the observed level of reduction in TNF-alpha-induced neutrophil adhesion and recruitment in CD18 gene-targeted animals corresponded well with the decrease in CD 18 expression on neutrophils from these mice, i.e. the surface density of CD18 was reduced by 77% in mutants compared to WT. Differential analysis revealed that the extravascular leukocytes comprised more than 90% PMNLs, indicating that neutrophils were the main inflammatory cell responding to TNF-alpha activation. Notably, the expression of CD18 increased by more than two-fold on extravasated neutrophils compared to circulating neutrophils in the peripheral blood both in WT and mutant animals. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that CD18 is a dominant mediator of firm neutrophil adhesion to venular endothelial cells in the muscle and skin stimulated by TNF-alpha in vivo. In addition, this decreased adhesion in CD18-mutants attenuates leukocyte extravasation in response to TNF-alpha activation. Thus, inhibition of CD 18-function may provide an important strategy to inhibit leukocyte recruitment in cytokine-dependent diseases.

    • Recent data suggest that platelets not only control thrombosis and hemostasis but may also regulate inflammatory processes such as acute pancreatitis. However, the specific role of platelet-derived mediators in the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis is not known. Herein, we examined the role of CD40 ligand (CD40L, CD154) in different models of acute pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis was induced by repetitive caerulein administration (50 mu g/kg, i.p.) or infusion of sodium taurocholate (5%-10 mu l) into the pancreatic duct in wild-type C578L/6 and CD40L-deficient mice. Neutrophil infiltration, myeloperoxidase (MPO), macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) levels, acinar cell necrosis, edema and hemorrhage in the pancreas as well as serum amylase activity and lung levels of MPO were quantified 24 h after induction of acute pancreatitis. Caerulein and taurocholate challenge caused a clear-cut pancreatic damage characterized by increased acinar cell necrosis, neutrophil infiltration, focal hemorrhage, edema formation as well as increased levels of serum amylase and MIP-2 in the pancreas and lung MPO and histological damage. Notably, CD40L gene-deficient animals exhibited a similar phenotype as wild-type mice after challenge with caerulein and taurocholate. Similarly, administration of an antibody directed against CD40L had no effect against acute pancreatitis. Our data suggest that CD40L does not play a functional role in experimental acute pancreatitis. Thus, other candidates than CD40L needs to be explored in order to identify platelet-derived mediators in the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

  • Platelets regulate P-selectin expression and leukocyte rolling in inflamed venules of the pancreas

    • Recent data suggest that platelets regulate inflammatory changes and tissue damage in acute pancreatitis although the role of platelets in leukocyte-endothelium interactions in the pancreatic microcirculation is not known. The aim of this study was to define the impact of platelets on leukocyte rolling and adhesion in acute pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis was induced in C57BL/6 mice by caerulein challenge. Mice were treated with an a anti-GP1b alpha (CD42b) antibody, which depletes platelets, or a control antibody before caerulein. Leukocyte rolling and adhesion were determined by the use of intravital fluorescence microscopy 18 h after the last dose of caerulein. In separate experiments, leukocyte-endothelium interactions were determined before and after administration of an anti-P-selectin, anti-PSGL-1 and a control antibody in mice with caerulein pancreatitis. Circulating platelet-neutrophil aggregates and pancreatic P-selectin mRNA were quantified 1 and 6 h respectively after caerulein challenge. Caerulein administration increased leukocyte and platelet interactions in the pancreatic microvasculature, increased tissue damage and expression of P-selectin mRNA in the pancreas as well as platelet-neutrophil complexes in the circulation. Notably, platelet depletion markedly reduced caerulein-provoked leukocyte rolling and adhesion in postcapillary venules. Interestingly, depletion of platelets significantly decreased caerulein-induced gene expression of P-selectin in the pancreas. Moreover, immunoneutralization of P-selectin and PSGL-1 abolished leukocyte rolling in the pancreatic venules triggered by caerulein. Our novel findings demonstrate that platelets regulate leukocyte rolling in acute pancreatitis via induction of P-selectin, which was critical in supporting leukocyte rolling in inflamed venules of the pancreas.

    • The relationship between inflammation and proteolytic activation in pancreatitis is an unresolved issue in pancreatology. The purpose of this study was to define the influence of neutrophils on trypsinogen activation in severe AP. Pancreatitis was induced by infusion of taurocholate into the pancreatic duct in C57BL/6 mice. For neutrophil depletion, an anti-Gr-1 antibody was administered before pancreatitis induction. Administration of the anti-Gr-1 antibody reduced circulating neutrophils by 97%. Pancreatic TAP and serum amylase levels increased 2 h and 24 h after induction of pancreatitis. Neutrophil depletion reduced pancreatic TAP and serum amylase levels at 24 h but not at 2 h after pancreatitis induction. Pancreatic MPO and infiltration of neutrophils, as well as MIP-2 levels, were increased 24 h after taurocholate infusion. Two hours after taurocholate administration, no significant pancreatic infiltration of neutrophils was observed. Injection of the anti-Gr-1 antibody abolished MPO activity, neutrophil accumulation, and MIP-2 levels, as well as acinar cell necrosis, hemorrhage, and edema in the pancreas at 24 h. Moreover, taurocholate-provoked tissue damage and MPO activity in the lung were normalized by neutrophil depletion. Intravital fluorescence microscopy revealed a 97% reduction of leukocytes in the pancreatic microcirculation after administration of the anti-Gr-1 antibody. Our data demonstrate that initial trypsinogen activation is independent of neutrophils, whereas later activation is dependent on neutrophils in the pancreas. Neutrophils are critical in mediating pancreatic and lung tissue damage in severe AP.

    • BACKGROUND:: Platelets not only control thrombosis and haemostasis but may also regulate inflammatory processes. Acute pancreatitis (AP) is characterized by changes in both coagulation and proinflammatory activities. The role of platelets in AP is not yet known. METHODS:: AP was induced in C57BL/6 mice by repeated caerulein administration (50 µg/kg intraperitoneally). Mice received a platelet-depleting or control antibody before caerulein challenge. Neutrophil infiltration, myeloperoxidase (MPO) and macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP) 2 levels, acinar cell necrosis and haemorrhage in the pancreas, as well as serum amylase activity, were determined 24 h after caerulein injection. In an alternative model of pancreatitis, L-arginine (4 g/kg intraperitoneally) was given twice with an interval of 1 h and tissue samples were taken after 72 h [Correction added after online publication 29 September 2010: in the preceding sentence, 4 mg/kg was corrected to 4 g/kg]. RESULTS:: Caerulein administration increased acinar cell necrosis, neutrophil infiltration, focal haemorrhage and serum amylase levels. Platelet depletion reduced acinar cell necrosis, haemorrhage and serum amylase levels in AP. Depletion of platelets decreased caerulein-induced MPO levels and neutrophil recruitment in the pancreas. Platelet depletion abolished caerulein-induced MIP-2 generation in the pancreas and circulation. The effects of platelet depletion on necrosis, neutrophils and MPO levels were confirmed in L-arginine-induced pancreatitis. CONCLUSION:: Platelets play a crucial role in AP by regulating neutrophil infiltration, most likely mediated by MIP-2 production in the pancreas.

  • MiR-155-5p positively regulates CCL17-induced colon cancer cell migration by targeting RhoA

    • Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death, which is due to migration of tumor cells to distant sites of metastasis. Accumulating data indicate that mciroRNAs play an important role in several aspects of colon cancer cell biology. Herein, we examined the role of miR-155-5p in colon cancer cell migration induced by the CCL17-CCR4 axis in HT-29 colon cancer cells. We found that miR-155-5p knockdown in serum starved colon cancer cells decreased CCL17-induced cell chemotaxis. Moreover, knocking down miR-155-5p markedly decreased CCL17-provoked activation of RhoA in colon cancer cells. Bioinformatics analysis predicted two putative binding sites in the AU-rich element at the 3'-UTR of RhoA mRNA. MiR-155-5p binding to RhoA mRNA was verified using a target site blocker and functionally validated by RNA immunoprecipitation assays, showing that miR-155-5p-dependent regulation of RhoA mRNA is mediated by AU-rich elements present in the 3'-UTR region. Taken together, these results show that miR-155-5p positively regulates RhoA mRNA levels and translation as well as cell migration in serum starved colon cancer cells and indicate that targeting miR-155-5p might be a useful strategy to antagonize colon cancer metastasis.
