BACKGROUND:Airway inflammation and excessive mucin production are pathophysiological characteristics of airway diseases. Fipronil, a pesticide, is being extensively used in agriculture and veterinary medicine worldwide. However, this compound impairs immune function in non-target organisms. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of fipronil on pro-inflammatory cytokine and mucus production and signalling pathways in human primary nasal METHODOLOGY: The effect of fipronil on pro-inflammatory cytokine and MUC5AC expression and the signalling pathway of fipronil were investigated using real-time PCR, enzyme immunoassays, immunofluorescence, and immunoblot analysis with specific inhibitors and small interfering RNA. RESULTS:Fipronil treatment increased pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and MUC5AC expression in human primary nasal epithelial cells. It also induced phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) mitogenactivated protein kinase (MAPK), p38 MAPK, and nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-kB). MAPK and NF-kB inhibitor treatment significantly inhibited increases in IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and MUC5AC expression. Ex vivo data confirmed that fipronil-induced MUC5AC expression occurs through ERK1/2, p38, and NF-kB signalling pathways in nasal inferior turbinate tissue. CONCLUSIONS:Fipronil induced pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and MUC5AC expression via ERK1/2 MAPK, p38 MAPK, and NF-kB in human primary nasal epithelial cells.


背景: 气道炎症和黏蛋白生成过多是气道疾病的病理生理特征。氟虫腈是一种杀虫剂,在世界范围内广泛用于农业和兽医。然而,这种化合物损害了非靶生物的免疫功能。本研究旨在评价氟虫腈对人原发性鼻方法学中促炎细胞因子和粘液产生及信号通路的影响: 采用实时荧光定量 PCR 、酶免疫、免疫荧光、荧光等方法研究了氟虫腈对促炎细胞因子和 MUC5AC 表达的影响及氟虫腈的信号通路,并用特异性抑制剂和小干扰 RNA 进行免疫印迹分析。 结果: 氟虫腈处理可增加人鼻黏膜上皮细胞中促炎细胞因子白细胞介素 (IL)-1 β 、 IL-6 、 IL-8 和 MUC5AC 的表达。它还诱导细胞外信号调节激酶 1/2 (ERK1/2) 有丝分裂原激活蛋白激酶 (MAPK) 的磷酸化,p38 MAPK, 和活化 B 细胞的核因子 κ 轻链增强子 (NF-kB)。MAPK 和 NF-kB 抑制剂处理显著抑制 IL-1beta 、 IL-6 、 IL-8 和 MUC5AC 表达的增加。离体数据证实,氟虫腈诱导的 MUC5AC 表达通过下鼻甲组织中的 ERK1/2 、 p38 和 NF-kB 信号通路发生。 结论: 氟虫腈可通过 ERK1/2 MAPK 、 p38 MAPK 和 NF-kB 诱导人鼻黏膜上皮细胞 IL-1beta 、 IL-6 、 IL-8 和 MUC5AC 的表达。

METHODS:BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:A critical role for sphingosine kinase/sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) pathway in the control of airway function has been demonstrated in respiratory diseases. Here, we address S1P contribution in a mouse model of mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH:C57BL/6J mice have been exposed to room air or cigarette smoke up to 11 months and killed at different time points. Functional and molecular studies have been performed. KEY RESULTS:Cigarette smoke caused emphysematous changes throughout the lung parenchyma coupled to a progressive collagen deposition in both peribronchiolar and peribronchial areas. The high and low airways showed an increased reactivity to cholinergic stimulation and α-smooth muscle actin overexpression. Similarly, an increase in airway reactivity and lung resistances following S1P challenge occurred in smoking mice. A high expression of S1P, Sph-K2 , and S1P receptors (S1P2 and S1P3 ) has been detected in the lung of smoking mice. Sphingosine kinases inhibition reversed the increased cholinergic response in airways of smoking mice. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS:S1P signalling up-regulation follows the disease progression in smoking mice and is involved in the development of airway hyperresponsiveness. Our study defines a therapeutic potential for S1P inhibitors in management of airways hyperresponsiveness associated to emphysema in smokers with both asthma and COPD.

METHODS::The interim results from this 90-day multi-dose, inhalation toxicology study with life-time post-exposure observation has shown an important fundamental difference in persistence and pathological response in the lung between brake dust derived from brake-pads manufactured with chrysotile, TiO2 or chrysotile alone in comparison to the amphiboles, crocidolite and amosite asbestos. In the brake dust exposure groups no significant pathological response was observed at any time. Slight macrophage accumulation of particles was noted. Wagner-scores, were from 1 to 2 (1 = air-control group) and were similar to the TiO2 group. Chrysotile being biodegradable, shows a weakening of its matrix and breaking into short fibers & particles that can be cleared by alveolar macrophages and continued dissolution. In the chrysotile exposure groups, particle laden macrophage accumulation was noted leading to a slight interstitial inflammatory response (Wagner-score 1-3). There was no peribronchiolar inflammation and occasional very slight interstitial fibrosis. The histopathology and the confocal analyses clearly differentiate the pathological response from amphibole asbestos, crocidolite and amosite, compared to that from the brake dust and chrysotile. Both crocidolite and amosite induced persistent inflammation, microgranulomas, and fibrosis (Wagner-scores 4), which persisted through the post exposure period. The confocal microscopy of the lung and snap-frozen chestwalls quantified the extensive inflammatory response and collagen development in the lung and on the visceral and parietal surfaces. The interim results reported here, provide a clear basis for differentiating the effects from brake dust exposure from those following amphibole asbestos exposure. The subsequent results through life-time post-exposure will follow.

METHODS::The respiratory tract is lined by a pseudo-stratified epithelium from the nose to terminal bronchioles. This first line of defense of the lung against external stress includes five main cell types: basal, suprabasal, club, goblet and multiciliated cells, as well as rare cells such as ionocytes, neuroendocrine and tuft/brush cells. At homeostasis, this epithelium self-renews at low rate but is able of fast regeneration upon damage. Airway epithelial cell lineages during regeneration have been investigated in the mouse by genetic labeling, mainly after injuring the epithelium with noxious agents. From these approaches, basal cells have been identified as progenitors of club, goblet and multiciliated cells, but also of ionocytes and neuroendocrine cells. Single-cell RNA sequencing, coupled to lineage inference algorithms, has independently allowed the establishment of comprehensive pictures of cell lineage relationships in both mouse and human. In line with genetic tracing experiments in mouse trachea, studies using single-cell RNA sequencing (RNAseq) have shown that basal cells first differentiate into club cells, which in turn mature into goblet cells or differentiate into multiciliated cells. In the human airway epithelium, single-cell RNAseq has identified novel intermediate populations such as deuterosomal cells, 'hybrid' mucous-multiciliated cells and progenitors of rare cells. Novel differentiation dynamics, such as a transition from goblet to multiciliated cells have also been discovered. The future of cell lineage relationships in the respiratory tract now resides in the combination of genetic labeling approaches with single-cell RNAseq to establish, in a definitive manner, the hallmarks of cellular lineages in normal and pathological situations.
