    Description: Objective: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. The complement system plays a major role in inflammation and tissue injury following myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (MI/R) injury. Systemic C5 inhibition in clinical studies has resulted in mixed results and the role of earlier complement components (e.g., C3a), upstream from C5 cleavage, has not been elucidated for MI/R injury. Therefore, we evaluated the role of C5 or C3a in a mouse model of MI/R injury.Methods: We performed experimental MI/R with 30 min of ischemia and 4 hr of reperfusion in 8-12 wk old C57BL/6 (WT) mice. Systemic C5 or C3a inhibition was performed with an anti-C5 monoclonal antibody (BB5.1) 30 min prior to reperfusion or with a C3a receptor antagonist (C3aRA). Since the C3aRA induces neutropenia that resolves within 120 min, we administered C3aRA at two different time points in two separate groups: 30 min prior to reperfusion within the neutropenic time frame and 120 min prior to reperfusion, when the neutropenia had resolved, but C3aRA remained active. Following MI/R, cardiac function was assessed via echocardiography, serum troponin I concentrations were measured as an index of myocardial cell death and myocardial inflammation was determined via myocardial polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) infiltration.Results: In wild type mice, MI/R significantly decrease myocardial ejection fraction and increased serum troponin I levels and myocardial PMN infiltration compared to sham-operated animals. Systemic C5 inhibition, 30 min prior to reperfusion, significantly protected mice from MI/R injury, confirming an important role for C5 in murine MI/R injury.Treatment with the C3aRA, 30 min prior to reperfusion (i.e., within the neutropenic time frame), protected mice significantly from MI/R related injury. In contrast, administration of the C3aRA 120 min prior to reperfusion, when the neutropenia had resolved, but C3aRA remained active, did not prevent MI/R injury.Conclusions: These results confirm an important role for C5 cleavage in murine MI/R injury. At the same time, they suggest a minimal role for C3a, since neutropenia rather than C3a receptor antagonism appears to be responsible for C3aRA related amelioration in MI/R injury. While C5 inhibition in the clinical setting of MI/R does not appear to be therapeutic, our results raise the possibility that inhibition of either C5a or C5b-9 may be more advantageous than inhibition of C3a or complete inhibition of C5 in humans.
    Description: Einleitung: Die koronare Herzerkrankung ist weltweit die führende Todesursache. Das Komplementsystem spielt eine wichtige Rolle bei der Entzündungsreaktion und dem Gewebeschaden nach myokardialer Ischämie und Reperfusion (MI/R). Die Inhibition des Komplementfaktors C5 hatte in klinischen Studien unterschiedliche Ergebnisse gezeigt, und die Rolle von Komplementfaktoren, die oberhalb der C5-Spaltung in der Komplementkaskade liegen (z.B. C3a), wurde für MI/R nicht erforscht. Daher untersuchten wir die Rolle von C5 und C3a in einem MI/R-Mausmodell.Methoden: Wir führten in 12 Wochen alten C57BL/6 (WT)-Mäusen experimentell MI/R mit 30 min Ischämie und 4 h Reperfusion durch. Systemische Inhibition der Komplementfaktoren C5 oder C3a wurde mittels eines anti-C5 monoklonalen Antikörpers (BB5.1) 30 min vor der Reperfusion oder mit einem C3a-Rezeptorantagonist (C3aRA) durchgeführt. Da der C3aRA eine Neutropenie induziert, die innerhalb von 〈TextGroup〉 120 min 〈/TextGroup〉 abgeklungen ist, verabreichten wir den C3aRA in zwei unterschiedlichen Versuchsgruppen zu zwei Zeitpunkten: 30 min vor der Reperfusion, innerhalb der Neutropenie, und 120 min vor der Reperfusion, wenn die Neutropenie abgeklungen war, aber der C3aRA noch aktiv war. Nach MI/R untersuchten wir die kardiale Funktion mittels Echokardiographie, bestimmten die Serumkonzentration von Troponin I als Zeichen myokardialen Zelluntergangs und die myokardiale Infiltration mit Polymorphonukleären Zellen (PMN) als Maß myokardialer Inflammation. Ergebnisse: WT-Mäuse hatten nach MI/R im Vergleich zu sham-operierten Mäusen signifikant reduzierte Ejektionsfraktionen, während Troponin I und die myokardiale PMN-Infiltration signifikant erhöht waren. Systemische C5-Inhibierung 30 min vor der Reperfusion schützte Mäuse signifikant vor MI/R-Schädigung und bestätigt damit eine wichtige Rolle von C5 in MI/R im Mausmodell. Eine Behandlung mit dem C3aRA 30 min vor der Reperfusion, während der neutropenischen Phase, schützte die Mäuse signifikant vor MI/R-Schädigung. Eine Verabreichung des C3aRA 120 min vor der Reperfusion, wenn die Neutropenie abgeklungen war, aber der C3aRA noch aktiv war, verhinderte allerdings keine MI/R-Schädigung.Fazit: Diese Ergebnisse bestätigen eine wichtige Rolle für C5 bei MI/R im Mausmodell. Die durch den C3aRA verursachte Neutropenie, und nicht der C3a-Rezeptorantagonismus, scheint für die Abschwächung des MI/R-Schadens verantwortlich zu sein. Damit scheint C3a bei MI/R im Mausmodell nur eine untergeordnete Rolle zu spielen. Da die Inhibition des Komplementfaktors C5 in klinischen Studien nicht erfolgreich war, sprechen unsere Ergebnisse dafür, dass die Inhibition von C5a oder C5b-9 in klinischen Studien erfolgversprechender sein könnte als die Inhibition von C3a oder eine komplette Inhibition von C5.

    Abstract: We have previously reported an increased expression of cytokeratins 8/18 (K8/K18) in cells expressing the F508del mutation of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). This is associated with increased colocalization of CFTR and K18 in the vicinity of the endoplasmic reticulum, although this is reversed by treating cells with curcumin, resulting in the rescue of F508del-CFTR. In the present work, we hypothesized that (i) the K8/K18 network may interact physically with CFTR, and that (ii) this interaction may modify CFTR function. CFTR was immunoprecipitated from HeLa cells transfected with either wild-type (WT) CFTR or F508del-CFTR. Precipitates were subjected to 2D-gel electrophoresis and differential spots identified by mass spectrometry. K8 and K18 were found significantly increased in F508del-CFTR precipitates. Using surface plasmon resonance, we demonstrate that K8, but not K18, binds directly and preferentially to the F508del over the WT human NBD1 (nucleotide-binding domain-1). In vivo K8 interaction with F508del-CFTR was confirmed by proximity ligation assay in HeLa cells and in primary cultures of human respiratory epithelial cells. Ablation of K8 expression by siRNA in F508del-expressing HeLa cells led to the recovery of CFTR-dependent iodide efflux. Moreover, F508del-expressing mice topically treated with K8-siRNA showed restored nasal potential difference, equivalent to that of WT mice. These results show that disruption of F508del-CFTR and K8 interaction leads to the correction of the F508del-CFTR processing defect, suggesting a novel potential therapeutic target in CF.

    Abstract: The deletion of Phe508 (DeltaF508) in the first nucleotide binding domain (NBD1) of CFTR is the most common mutation associated with cystic fibrosis. The DeltaF508-CFTR mutant is recognized as improperly folded and targeted for proteasomal degradation. Based on molecular dynamics simulation results, we hypothesized that interaction between DeltaF508-NBD1 and housekeeping proteins prevents DeltaF508-CFTR delivery to the plasma membrane. Based on this assumption we applied structure-based virtual screening to identify new low-molecular-weight compounds that should bind to DeltaF508-NBD1 and act as protein-protein interaction inhibitors. Using different functional assays for CFTR activity, we demonstrated that in silico-selected compounds induced functional expression of DeltaF508-CFTR in transfected HeLa cells, human bronchial CF cells in primary culture, and in the nasal epithelium of homozygous DeltaF508-CFTR mice. The proposed compounds disrupt keratin8-DeltaF508-CFTR interaction in DeltaF508-CFTR HeLa cells. Structural analysis of DeltaF508-NBD1 in the presence of these compounds suggests their binding to NBD1. We conclude that our strategy leads to the discovery of new compounds that are among the most potent correctors of DeltaF508-CFTR trafficking defect known to date.
