Abstract [en]

NLRP3 inflammasome; a key component of the innate immune system, can be activated by a number of pathogens and other threats of the body. Activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome triggers caspase-1 mediated maturationof IL-1β and IL-18. Polymorphisms Q705K and C10X are two gene variants of the NLRP3 inflammasome that combined or per se have been associated with higher risk and severity of chronic inflammation and excessive production of IL-1β. Host genetic factors have been found an important determinants of susceptibility of infectious diseases and disease outcome. The aims of this thesis were to investigate the association between polymorphisms Q705K and C10X with bacterial infections and the inflammatory response, moreover to determine the inflammasome activation state in healthy carriers of these polymorphisms. The data of the thesis show higher levels of IL-1β and IL-33 in healthy carriers of combined polymorphisms of Q705K and C10X as compared to non-carrier controls. This may provide individuals with combined polymorphisms a more robust innate immune response against pathogens, but could also lead to the onset of chronic inflammation, and excessive inflammation during acute infection. In addition, individuals with C10X polymorphism per se showed association with the presence of bacteremia as compared withhealthy blood donors. No association was found in severely ill patients with negative blood culture bottle. In addition, the results show that LOS of N. meningitidis is responsible for the priming and activating steps of the inflammasome. The non-LOS components were found to contribute to the priming step. A higher inflammatory response to N. meningitidis was found in individuals who were non-carriers of the polymorphisms than individuals with the Q705K and C10X per se or combined regardless of the strain of bacteria. Taken together, the gene variations of the NLRP3 inflammasome are of importance in explaining inter-individual variation in susceptibility to infectious diseases.

Abstract [en]

Background: The NLRP3 inflammasome has been recognized as one of the key components of the innate immunity by sensing a diversity of insults. Inflammasome activation results in the maturation of the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-1 beta and IL-18. Increased production of IL-1 beta is found in patients with gain-of-function polymorphisms in genes encoding the NLRP3 inflammasome. Since approximately 5% of the Swedish population are heterozygote carriers of these combined gene variants, their impact on inflammasome status and a relationship on disease development is therefore highly relevant to study. The present study investigates levels of inflammasome-produced cytokines as a measure of inflammasome activation in healthy individuals carrying Q705K polymorphism in the NLRP3 gene combined with C10X in the CARD8 gene.

Materials and Methods: Genotyping of 1006 healthy blood donors was performed for the polymorphisms Q705K in the NLRP3 and C10X in the CARD8 genes. IL-1 beta, IL-18, IL-33, as well as a number of other pro-inflammatory cytokines, were analyzed by Luminex or ELISA in plasma from individuals carrying the polymorphisms and in age and gender matched non-carrier controls.

Results & Discussion: The prevalence of the polymorphisms was in line with previous studies. Plasma levels of IL-1 beta and IL-33 were elevated among carriers of combined Q705K+C10X polymorphisms compared to controls, whereas no difference was found for IL-18 and the other cytokines measured. Moreover, carriers of C10X or Q705K per se had similar plasma levels of IL-1 beta as non-carriers. These data suggest that the combined polymorphisms create inflammasomes with increased basal activation state, which might provide a more favourable innate immune response. In spite of this, it could also represent the mechanisms by which the inflammatory loop is triggered into a long-term inflammatory phenotype.

Abstract [en]

The NLRP3 inflammasome is an intracellular multi-protein complex that triggers caspase-1 mediated maturation of interleukin-1β (IL-1β); one of the most potent mediators of inflammation and a major cytokine produced during severe infections, like sepsis. However, the excessive cytokine levels seem to stage for tissue injury and organ failure, and high levels of IL-1β correlates with severity and mortality of sepsis. Instead, recent data suggest caspase-1 to function as a guardian against severe infections. CARD8 has been implied to regulate the synthesis of IL-1β via interaction to caspase-1. In recent years, polymorphism of CARD8 (C10X) per se or in combination with NLRP3 (Q705K) has been implicated with increased risk of inflammation. The aim was to investigate the correlation of these polymorphisms with severe blood stream infection. Human DNA was extracted from blood culture bottles that were found to be positive for microbial growth (i.e. patients with bacteraemia). Polymorphisms Q705K in the NLRP3 gene and C10X in the CARD8 gene were genotyped using TaqMan genotyping assay. The results were compared to healthy controls and to samples from patients with negative cultures. The polymorphism C10X was significantly over-represented among patients with bacteraemia as compared to healthy controls, whereas patients with negative blood culture were not associated with a higher prevalence. No association was observed with polymorphism Q705K of NLRP3 in either group of patients. Patients carrying polymorphism C10X in the CARD8 gene are at increased risk of developing bacteraemia and severe inflammation.
