Increased IFN-γ levels have been associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, the relationships among IFN-γ, type I interferons (IFNs) and clinical features have not been extensively studied. Peripheral blood samples from 44 SLE patients and 36 healthy donors (HDs) were collected. Quantitative real-time PCR was used to assess the mRNA expression of IFNG, type II IFN-inducible genes (IRF1, GBP1, CXCL9, CXCL10, and SERPING1, which are used for the type II IFN score), type I IFN-inducible genes (IRF7, MX1, ISG15, and ISG20, which are used for the type I IFN score), TBX21, and EOMES in peripheral blood mononuclear cells...

Background: Non-infectious uveitis can cause chronic relapsing and remitting ocular inflammation, which may require high dose systemic immunosuppression to prevent severe sight loss. It has been classically described as an autoimmune disease, mediated by pro-inflammatory Th1 and Th17 T-cell subsets. Studies suggest that natural immunosuppressive CD4+ CD25+ FoxP3+ T-regulatory cells (Tregs) are involved in resolution of inflammation and may be involved in the maintenance of clinical remission...

Common cancer treatments include radiation therapy, chemotherapy including molecular targeted drugs and anticancer drugs, and surgical treatment. Recent studies have focused on investigating the mechanisms by which immune cells attack cancer cells and produce immune tolerance-suppressing cytokines, as well as on their potential application in cancer immunotherapy. We conducted expression profiling of CD274 ( PD-L1 ), GATA3, IFNG, IL12R, IL12RB2, IL4, PDCD1 ( PD-1 ), PDCD1LG2 ( PD-L2 ), and TBX21 ( T-bet ) using data of 158 glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patients with clinical information available at The Cancer Genome Atlas...

Background: The T-helper 17 (Th17) cells have a prominent role in inflammation as well as in bone and join destruction in both rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis (RA and PsA). Here, we studied Th17 cell differentiation in RA and PsA. Methods: Blood samples from healthy donors, RA and PsA patients were collected. CD45RO- (naive) and CD45RO+ (memory) T cells were isolated from peripherial blood mononuclear cell by magnetic separation. Naive T cells were stimulated with anti-CD3, anti-CD28, and goat anti-mouse IgG antibodies and treated with transforming grow factor beta, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1β , and IL-23 cytokines and also with anti-IL-4 antibody...

BACKGROUND: The Th1 cell-specific transcription factor TBX21 functions as a regulator of expression of a Th1 cytokine, interferon gamma (IFN-γ). However, the specific function of TBX21 correlated with cancer stemness remains unclear. METHODS: Using univariate and multivariate survival analysis, TBX21was identified as an independent predictive factor and was associated with poor prognosis in 1389 patients with lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). Its mechanism in the prognosis was explored by functional enrichment analysis and validated in bioexperiments...

Although tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) display a M2-skewed tumor-promoting phenotype in most cancers, in colorectal cancer (CRC), both TAM polarization and its impact remain controversial. We investigated the role of the M2-polarizing p50 NF-κB subunit in orchestrating TAM phenotype, tumor microenvironment composition, and CRC progression. We first demonstrate, by parallel studies in colitis-associated cancer (CAC) and in genetically driven ApcMin mouse models, that the p50-dependent inhibition of M1-polarized gut inflammation supports CRC development...

Most studies of xenografts have been carried out with complex immunosuppressive regimens to prevent immune rejection; however, such treatments may be fatal owing to unknown causes. Here, we performed immune molecular profiling following anti-CD154 monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatment in heterotopic abdominal cardiac xenografts from α-1,3-galactosyltransferase-knockout pigs into cynomolgus monkeys to elucidate the mechanisms mediating the undesirable fatal side effects of immunosuppressive agents. Blood samples were collected from healthy monkeys as control and then at 2 days after xenograft transplantation and just before humane euthanasia; 94 genes related to the immune system were analyzed...

Objectives: Altered immune homeostasis and involvement of T cells has been reported in chronic pancreatitis (CP). We evaluated the role of Bach2 (BTB and CNC homology basic leucine zipper transcription factor 2), a key regulator of immune homeostasis in the chronicity of CP. Methods: Expression of Bach2 and T-cell transcription factors, enumeration of BACH2+/CD4+ T-lymphocytes were performed by qRT-PCR and flow cytometry respectively. Bach2 silenced human CD4+ T-lymphocytes were exposed to CP tissue extract to assess T-cell lineage commitment...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to investigate the role of cathepsin H (CatH), a lysosomal cysteine protease, in the development of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of multiple sclerosis. METHODS: EAE was induced in CatH-deficient mice (CatH-/- ) and wild-type littermates (+/+) using myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) 35-55. The effects of CatH deficiency were determined by clinical scoring, mRNA expression levels of Tbx21, Rorc and FoxP3, protein levels of poly(I:C)-induced toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) and phosphorylation of IRF3, and secretion of interferon-β (IFN-β) by splenocytes...

The role of leukocytes in deep vein thrombosis (DVT) resolution is incompletely understood. We determined how depletion of lysozyme positive (LysM+ ) cells and a switched-off type 1 immune response influences thrombus resolution. DVT was induced in 12-week-old male mice by inferior vena cava (IVC) stenosis. Toxin mediated depletion of myeloid cells improved thrombus resolution in mice with Cre-inducible expression of the diphtheria toxin receptor in LysM+ cells. This correlated with decreased CD45+ cells, a population shift of Gr-1+ to Gr-1- CD11b+ myelomonocytic cells (flow cytometry) and an increase in CC-chemokine ligand 2, interleukin-4 and interleukin-10 mRNA expressions...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major cause of chronic liver disease. The outcomes of both spontaneous HCV clearance and response to therapy depend on both viral and host factors. To investigate the influence of polymorphisms of IL-28B rs12979860 and TBX21 rs17250932, rs4794067 as well as viral factors (HCV genotype, F protein) on the outcome of HCV infection, we genotyped 565 patients with chronic HCV infection, 191 patients spontaneously resolved from HCV infection, 359 healthy controls and 383 treatment-naïve CHC patients with pegylated interferon-α and ribavirin (PEG IFN-α/RBV)...

Invariant NKT (iNKT) cells are a distinct subset of T cells that exert Janus-like functions in vivo by producing IFN-γ and IL-4. Sodium chloride modulates the functions of various immune cells, including conventional CD4+ T cells and macrophages. However, it is not known whether sodium chloride affects iNKT cell function, so we addressed this issue. Sodium chloride inhibited IFN-γ, but not IL-4, production by iNKT cells upon TCR or TCR-independent (IL-12 and IL-18) stimulation in a dose-dependent manner. Consistently, sodium chloride reduced the expression level of tbx21, but not gata-3, in iNKT cells stimulated with TCR engagement or IL-12 + IL-18...

Classical Hodgkin lymphoma (CHL) is a neoplasm characterized by robust inflammatory infiltrates and heightened expression of the immunosuppressive PD-1/PD-L1 pathway. Although anti-PD-1 therapy can be effective in >60% of patients with refractory CHL, improved treatment options are needed for CHLs which are resistant to anti-PD-1 or relapse after this form of immunotherapy. A deeper understanding of immunologic factors in the CHL microenvironment might support the design of more effective treatment combinations based on anti-PD-1...

Numerous studies have examined the association between pharmacogenetic effects and the response to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) in patients with asthma. In fact, several single nucleotide polymorphisms of a number of candidate genes have been identified that might influence the clinical response to ICS in children with asthma. Their direct or indirect effects depend on their role in the inflammatory process in asthma or the anti-inflammatory action of corticosteroids, respectively. Among the genes identified, variants in T-box 21 ( TBX21) and Fc fragment of IgE receptor II ( FCER2) contribute indirectly to the variability in the response to ICS by altering the inflammatory mechanisms in asthma, while other genes such as corticotropin releasing hormone receptor 1 ( CRHR1), nuclear receptor subfamily 3 group C member 1 ( NR3C1), stress induced phosphoprotein 1 ( STIP1), dual specificity phosphatase 1 (DUSP1), glucocorticoid induced 1 (GLCCI1), histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC), ORMDL sphingolipid biosynthesis regulator 3 (ORMDL3), and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF) directly affect this variability through the anti-inflammatory mechanisms of ICS...

BACKGROUND: Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS), X-linked thrombocytopenia (XLT), and X-linked neutropenia, which are caused by WAS mutations affecting Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp) expression or activity, manifest in immunodeficiency, autoimmunity, genomic instability, and lymphoid and other cancers. WASp supports filamentous actin formation in the cytoplasm and gene transcription in the nucleus. Although the genetic basis for XLT/WAS has been clarified, the relationships between mutant forms of WASp and the diverse features of these disorders remain ill-defined...

The impact of PD-1 immune checkpoint therapy prompts exploration of other strategies to downregulate PD-1 for cancer therapy. We previously showed that the serine/threonine kinase, glycogen synthase kinase, GSK-3α/β, is a central regulator of PD-1 transcription in CD8+ T cells. Here, we show that the use of small-molecule inhibitors of GSK-3α/β (GSK-3i) to reduce pcdc1 (PD-1) transcription and expression was as effective as anti-PD-1 and PD-L1-blocking antibodies in the control of B16 melanoma, or EL4 lymphoma, in primary tumor and metastatic settings...

Breast cancer is a common malignancy and a major cause of death in women worldwide. The immunomodulatory role of B cells is being increasingly recognized in autoimmune diseases and cancers. In recent years, immunotherapeutic strategies that upregulate the patient's own antitumor T cell responses have shown promise in treating solid tumors and are being developed for breast cancer. In this study, we discovered that the B cells in breast cancer patients were enriched with interferon (IFN)-γ-expressing cells and presented high potency for IFN-γ production...
