Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE:

Type I interferon (IFN) system and B cells are activated in many autoimmune diseases, e.g. systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). IFNα produced by plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) stimulate several B cell functions, including autoantibody production. However, not much is known how B cells influence the pDC function. We therefore investigated the regulatory effect of B cells on IFNα production by pDC.

METHODS:

PDC and B cells from healthy blood donor PBMC were stimulated with RNA-containing immune complexes (RNA-IC) consisting of U1 snRNP and IgG from SLE patients, herpes simplex virus (HSV) or oligonucleotide ODN2216, alone or in co-cultures. IFNα, several other cytokines and pDC or B cell-associated surface molecules were analyzed by immunoassays or flow cytometry.

RESULTS:

B cells enhanced the IFNα production by pDC up to 47-fold, and the effect was most pronounced for pDC stimulated with RNA-IC. Anti-CD31 antibody reduced the RNA-IC-induced IFNα production by 80%, but not when ODN2216 was used as IFN-inducer. Supernatants from ODN2216-stimulated B cells promoted IFNα production by pDC, while supernatants from RNA-IC-stimulated B cells did not.

CONCLUSION:

Our results reveal a novel B cell function, enhancing the type I IFN production by pDC. Since B cells are activated by type I IFN, this pDC-B cell cross-talk might be of fundamental importance in the etiopathogenesis of SLE, and contribute to a chronic immune activation in SLE and other systemic rheumatic diseases.

Abstract [en]

The type I interferon (IFN) system plays a central role in the etiopathogenesis of many autoimmune diseases, e.g. systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Activation of the type I IFN system in SLE is promoted by endogenous nucleic acid-containing immune complexes (ICs) which stimulate plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs). This thesis focuses on the regulation of IFN-α production in pDCs, by interactions with B cells and natural killer (NK) cells, and by genetic factors.

In Study I, RNA-IC-stimulated CD56dim NK cells were found to be activated via FcγRIIIa and enhanced the IFN-α production by pDCs. The enhancing effect of the NK cells was mediated via both soluble factors, such as the cytokine MIP-1β, and in a cell-cell contact mediated manner via the adhesion molecule LFA-1. In Study II, B cells enhanced the IFN-α production by pDCs via cell-cell contact or soluble factors, depending on the stimuli. The cell-cell contact-mediated enhancement, when the cells were stimulated with RNA-IC, was abolished by blocking the cell adhesion molecule CD31. B cells stimulated with the oligonucleotide ODN2216 enhanced the IFN-α production via soluble factors. In Study III, gene variants related to autoimmune or inflammatory diseases were analyzed for the association to the IFN-α production by pDCs, alone or in coculture with NK or B cells. Depending on cell combination, 18-86 SNPs (p < 0.001) were associated with the IFN-α production. Several of the SNPs showed novel associations to the type I IFN system, while some loci have been described earlier for their association with SLE, e.g. IL10 and PXK. In Study IV, several B cell populations were affected by cocultivation with pDCs and stimulation with RNA-IC. The frequency of CD24hiCD38hi B cells of regulatory character was increased in the pDC-B cell cocultures. However, RNA-IC-stimulation only induced modest levels of IL-10. A remarkably increased frequency of double negative CD27-IgD- B cells was found in the RNA-IC-stimulated cocultures of pDCs and B cells.

In conclusion, the findings in the present thesis reveal novel mechanisms behind the regulation of the type I IFN system which could be important targets in autoimmune diseases with constantly activated pDCs.
