Jun kinase phosphorylates and regulates the DNA binding activity of an octamer binding protein, T-cell factor beta1. (1/9598)

POU domain proteins have been implicated as key regulators during development and lymphocyte activation. The POU domain protein T-cell factor beta1 (TCFbeta1), which binds octamer and octamer-related sequences, is a potent transactivator. In this study, we showed that TCFbeta1 is phosphorylated following activation via the T-cell receptor or by stress-induced signals. Phosphorylation of TCFbeta1 occurred predominantly at serine and threonine residues. Signals which upregulate Jun kinase (JNK)/stress-activated protein kinase activity also lead to association of JNK with TCFbeta1. JNK associates with the activation domain of TCFbeta1 and phosphorylates its DNA binding domain. The phosphorylation of recombinant TCFbeta1 by recombinant JNK enhances the ability of TCFbeta1 to bind to a consensus octamer motif. Consistent with this conclusion, TCFbeta1 upregulates reporter gene transcription in an activation- and JNK-dependent manner. In addition, inhibition of JNK activity by catalytically inactive MEKK (in which methionine was substituted for the lysine at position 432) also inhibits the ability of TCFbeta1 to drive inducible transcription from the interleukin-2 promoter. These results suggest that stress-induced signals and T-cell activation induce JNK, which then acts on multiple cis sequences by modulating distinct transactivators like c-Jun and TCFbeta1. This demonstrates a coupling between the JNK activation pathway and POU domain proteins and implicates TCFbeta1 as a physiological target in the JNK signal transduction pathway leading to coordinated biological responses.  (+info)

Requirement for transcription factor NFAT in interleukin-2 expression. (2/9598)

The nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) transcription factor is implicated in expression of the cytokine interleukin-2 (IL-2). Binding sites for NFAT are located in the IL-2 promoter. Furthermore, pharmacological studies demonstrate that the drug cyclosporin A inhibits both NFAT activation and IL-2 expression. However, targeted disruption of the NFAT1 and NFAT2 genes in mice does not cause decreased IL-2 secretion. The role of NFAT in IL-2 gene expression is therefore unclear. Here we report the construction of a dominant-negative NFAT mutant (dnNFAT) that selectively inhibits NFAT-mediated gene expression. The inhibitory effect of dnNFAT is mediated by suppression of activation-induced nuclear translocation of NFAT. Expression of dnNFAT in cultured T cells caused inhibition of IL-2 promoter activity and decreased expression of IL-2 protein. Similarly, expression of dnNFAT in transgenic mice also caused decreased IL-2 gene expression. These data demonstrate that NFAT is a critical component of the signaling pathway that regulates IL-2 expression.  (+info)

A technique for dual determination of cytotoxic and helper lymphocyte precursor frequency by a miniaturized dye release method. (3/9598)

Helper (HTLPf) and cytotoxic (CTLPf) lymphocyte precursor frequency assays are increasingly used in bone marrow stem cell and organ transplant compatibility testing. Current techniques require large cell numbers and radioisotopes. To improve the technique, we developed a miniaturized fluorescent read-out combined HTLPf/CTLPf limiting dilution assay. The assay requires only 5 x 10(6) stimulators, 2 x 10(6) responders and 0.24 x 10(6) target cells in Terasaki plates (40 microl/well). For the HTLPf, culture supernatants from each well were assayed for IL-2 production. The IL-2-dependent proliferation of the mouse 9.12 cell line was detected by a semi-automated fluorescent dye technique. After addition of rhIL-2 (recombinant human IL-2) on days 3 and 7, CTLPs were detected on day 10 by measuring the lysis of dye-labeled targets. Results were comparable to standard radioisotope-based techniques. The assay had a coefficient of variation of approximately 30%. The assay detected helper CD4 cells, pure cytotoxic CD8, helper CD8 cells and helper/cytotoxic CD8 cells. Discrimination was demonstrated between HLA-matched related and non-related pairs. The ease of testing and small cell numbers required should facilitate further evaluation of HTLPf and CTLPf for compatibility testing in unrelated donor transplantation and monitoring immune responses following adoptive transfer of lymphocytes.  (+info)

Distinct clinical and laboratory activity of two recombinant interleukin-2 preparations. (4/9598)

Interleukin-2 (IL-2) is a potent lymphokine that activates natural killer cells, T cells, and other cells of the immune system. Several distinct recombinant human IL-2 preparations have shown antitumor activity, particularly for renal cell cancer and melanoma. Somewhat distinct immune and clinical effects have been noted when different IL-2 preparations have been tested clinically; however, the regimens and doses used were not identical. To compare these more directly, we have evaluated two clinical recombinant IL-2 preparations in vitro and in vivo using similar regimens and similar IUs of IL-2. We used the Food and Drug Administration-approved, commercially available Chiron IL-2 and the Hoffmann LaRoche (HLR) IL-2 supplied by the National Cancer Institute. Using equivalent IUs of IL-2, we noted quantitative differences in vitro and in vivo in the IL-2 activity of these two preparations. In patients receiving comparable IUs of the two preparations, HLR IL-2 induced the release of more soluble IL-2 receptor alpha into the serum than Chiron IL-2. In addition, more toxicities were noted in patients receiving 1.5 x 10(6) IU of HLR IL-2 than were seen in patients treated with 1.5 x 10(6) or even 4.5 x 10(6) IU of Chiron IL-2. These toxicities included fever, nausea and vomiting, and hepatic toxicity. In vitro proliferative assays using IL-2-dependent human and murine cell lines indicated that the IU of HLR IL-2 was more effective than Chiron IL-2 at inducing tritiated thymidine incorporation. Using flow cytometry, we also found quantitative differences in the ability of these two preparations to bind to IL-2 receptors. These findings indicate that approximately 3-6 IU of Chiron IL-2 are required to induce the same biological effect as 1 IU of HLR IL-2.  (+info)

Presentation of renal tumor antigens by human dendritic cells activates tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes against autologous tumor: implications for live kidney cancer vaccines. (5/9598)

The clinical impact of dendritic cells (DCs) in the treatment of human cancer depends on their unique role as the most potent antigen-presenting cells that are capable of priming an antitumor T-cell response. Here, we demonstrate that functional DCs can be generated from peripheral blood of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) by culture of monocytes/macrophages (CD14+) in autologous serum containing medium (RPMI) in the presence of granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor and interleukin (IL) 4. For testing the capability of RCC-antigen uptake and processing, we loaded these DCs with autologous tumor lysate (TuLy) using liposomes, after which cytometric analysis of the DCs revealed a markedly increased expression of HLA class I antigen and a persistent high expression of class II. The immunogenicity of DC-TuLy was further tested in cultures of renal tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) cultured in low-dose IL-2 (20 Biologic Response Modifier Program units/ml). A synergistic effect of DC-TuLy and IL-2 in stimulating a T cell-dependent immune response was demonstrated by: (a) the increase of growth expansion of TILs (9.4-14.3-fold; day 21); (b) the up-regulation of the CD3+ CD56- TcR+ (both CD4+ and CD8+) cell population; (c) the augmentation of T cell-restricted autologous tumor lysis; and (d) the enhancement of IFN-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and IL-6 mRNA expression by TILs. Taken together, these data implicate that DC-TuLy can activate immunosuppressed TIL via an induction of enhanced antitumor CTL responses associated with production of Thl cells. This indicates a potential role of DC-TuLy vaccines for induction of active immunity in patients with advanced RCC.  (+info)

Characterization of CD4+ CD8alphaalpha+ and CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes in rats. (6/9598)

Intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (i-IEL) of aged rats comprise CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ and CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ T cells expressing TCR alphabeta. In the present study, we compared characteristics between CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ and CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL, which were purified by a cell sorter from the i-IEL of 6-month-old Lewis rats. Most of the CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL were of the CD44(hlgh) phenotype, while CD4-CD8alphabeta+ i-IEL were CD44(low). Vbeta usage in the CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL was much diversified, while CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL showed a skewed Vbeta repertoire. The CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL but not the CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL proliferated in response to syngeneic spleen cells, which was partially inhibited by addition of anti-MHC class I mAb. The CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL produced IFN-gamma and IL-2 but no IL-4 or transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta in response to syngeneic spleen cells, while CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL produced abundant levels of TGF-beta but no IL-2, IFN-gamma or IL-4. CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL proliferated in response to exogenous IL-2 but not to IL-15, while CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL could respond to IL-15 as well as IL-2. These results suggest that a significant fraction of CD4+CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL belongs to Th1-type T cells capable of responding to self-MHC class I, while CD4-CD8alphaalpha+ i-IEL are a unique population with a diversified Vbeta repertoire that respond to IL-15 in rats.  (+info)

Systemic administration of interleukin 2 enhances the therapeutic efficacy of dendritic cell-based tumor vaccines. (7/9598)

We have reported previously that murine bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (DC) pulsed with whole tumor lysates can mediate potent antitumor immune responses both in vitro and in vivo. Because successful therapy was dependent on host immune T cells, we have now evaluated whether the systemic administration of the T cell stimulatory/growth promoting cytokine interleukin-2 (IL-2) could enhance tumor lysate-pulsed DC-based immunizations to further promote protective immunity toward, and therapeutic rejection of, syngeneic murine tumors. In three separate approaches using a weakly immunogenic sarcoma (MCA-207), the systemic administration of nontoxic doses of recombinant IL-2 (20,000 and 40,000 IU/dose) was capable of mediating significant increases in the potency of DC-based immunizations. IL-2 could augment the efficacy of tumor lysate-pulsed DC to induce protective immunity to lethal tumor challenge as well as enhance splenic cytotoxic T lymphocyte activity and interferon-gamma production in these treated mice. Moreover, treatment with the combination of tumor lysate-pulsed DC and IL-2 could also mediate regressions of established pulmonary 3-day micrometastases and 7-day macrometastases as well as established 14- and 28-day s.c. tumors, leading to either significant cure rates or prolongation in overall survival. Collectively, these findings show that nontoxic doses of recombinant IL-2 can potentiate the antitumor effects of tumor lysate-pulsed DC in vivo and provide preclinical rationale for the use of IL-2 in DC-based vaccine strategies in patients with advanced cancer.  (+info)

Interferon gamma expressed by a recombinant respiratory syncytial virus attenuates virus replication in mice without compromising immunogenicity. (8/9598)

Interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) has pleiotropic biological effects, including intrinsic antiviral activity as well as stimulation and regulation of immune responses. An infectious recombinant human respiratory syncytial virus (rRSV/mIFN-gamma) was constructed that encodes murine (m) IFN-gamma as a separate gene inserted into the G-F intergenic region. Cultured cells infected with rRSV/mIFN-gamma secreted 22 microg mIFN-gamma per 10(6) cells. The replication of rRSV/mIFN-gamma, but not that of a control chimeric rRSV containing the chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (CAT) gene as an additional gene, was 63- and 20-fold lower than that of wild-type (wt) RSV in the upper and lower respiratory tract, respectively, of mice. Thus, the attenuation of rRSV/mIFN-gamma in vivo could be attributed to the activity of mIFN-gamma and not to the presence of the additional gene per se. The mice were completely resistant to subsequent challenge with wt RSV. Despite its growth restriction, infection of mice with rRSV/mIFN-gamma induced a level of RSV-specific antibodies that, on day 56, was comparable to or greater than that induced by infection with wt RSV. Mice infected with rRSV/mIFN-gamma developed a high level of IFN-gamma mRNA and an increased amount of interleukin 12 p40 mRNA in their lungs, whereas other cytokine mRNAs tested were unchanged compared with those induced by wt RSV. Because attenuation of RSV typically is accompanied by a reduction in immunogenicity, expression of IFN-gamma by an rRSV represents a method of attenuation in which immunogenicity can be maintained rather than be reduced.  (+info)

Rabbit anti Mouse Interleukin-22 antibody recognizes mouse interleukin-22 (IL-22), a regulatory cytokine and member of the IL-10 family, s
The dominant role of interleukin-2 (IL-2) is in the maintenance of regulatory T cells rather than of effector T cells. This has led to clinical interest in the use of low-dose IL-2 to control autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, with promising initial results. Depletion of regulatory T (TReg) cells in otherwise healthy individuals leads to multi-organ autoimmune disease and inflammation. This indicates that in a normal immune system, there are self-specific effector T cells that are ready to attack normal tissue if they are not restrained by TReg cells. The data imply that there is a balance between
Results Most patients showed good clinical responses after low-dose IL-2 treatment (7 out of 9). Clinical improvement was observed with SIR-4 response (6 out of 9), improved complement 3 and 4 serum level (9 out of 9) and decreased anti-ds-DNA serum level (8 out of 9). Functional profiling of CD8 T cells in low-dose IL-2 treated patients revealed increased frequencies of CEF viral peptide specific TNF-a+ and Granzyme-B+ CD8 T cells. Moreover, these patients showed stronger antigen-specific response demonstrated by an increased stimulated/non-stimulate TNF-a-producing CD8 T cells proliferation fold. Compared with HC, SLE patients showed significantly lower frequencies of CEF specific Granzyme-B producing CD8 T cell, and low-dose IL-2 significantly increased the frequency of these Granzyme-B+ CD8 T cells in SLE patients. ...

Clone REA665 recognizes the mouse interleukin-2 (IL-2) antigen. The T cell growth factor IL-2, mainly produced by activated CD4+ T cells, is a central regulator of the immune response. It induces cell cycle progression of resting cells in an antigen non-specific manner and allows clonal expansion of activated T cells. IL-2 has been found to stimulate growth and differentiation of B cells, NK cells, monocytes, and oligodendrocytes. In addition, IL-2 plays a role in hematopoiesis, tumor surveillance, and anti-inflammatory reactions.Additional information: Clone REA665 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors. - Nederland
IL-15 is important for the development and normal function of NK cells, NKT cells, and memory CD8+ T cells. In this study, we investigated the importance of the cytoplasmic domain of IL-15Rα by replacing it with that from IL-2Rα. Although the chimeric construct had similar mRNA expression to that observed for WT IL-15Rα, its cell-surface expression was diminished, ostensibly due to increased intracellular trapping of the chimeric receptor. Like IL-15Rα, IL-2Rα also recycles to the cell surface; thus, these results indicate that the IL-15Rα cytoplasmic domain is more efficient for this process than is the IL-2Rα cytoplasmic domain. In addition to the importance of the IL-15Rα cytoplasmic domain for cell-surface expression, it is also needed for normal signaling, given defective proliferation to submaximal concentrations of IL-15 in 32D-IL-2Rβ transfectants in which similar levels of WT and the KI constructs were expressed..

In a clinical trial of 500 patients with different types of stage 4 solid tumors who had responded to chemotherapy, a maintenance regimen with low-dose interleukin-2 (IL-2) and 13-cis retinoic acid (RA) has shown unexpected 5-year survival rates.. Francesco Recchia, MD, director of oncology at the Civilian Hospital in Avezzano, Italy, is scheduled to present findings from this extended phase II study in a presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2012 in Chicago on April 2.. The open, nonrandomized trial showed substantial improvements for these patients with metastatic cancer compared with corresponding U.S. National Cancer Institute Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data for 5-year overall survival (OS) rates. The OS rate was 42.7% for patients in the study versus 23.3% for breast cancer patients accounted for in SEER data, and ...

IL-2 deficiency and associated regulatory T cell (Treg) defects critically contribute to SLE pathogenesis. In our previous translational work we proved the efficacy and safety of a low-dose IL-2 therapy in animal models and identified a reversible IL-2 deprivation of Treg also in human SLE patients. Together, these studies provided the rationales for an IL-2-based immunotherapy of SLE in order to restore Treg activity and thus to re-establish endogenous mechanisms of tolerance that can counteract autoimmunity.. Here we report that a cyclic and subcutaneously applied low-dose IL-2-therapy induced a rapid, strong and sustained reduction of disease activity in parallel to a remarkable and selective expansion of the Treg population in a SLE patient with increased disease activity (SELENA-SLEDAI 14) refractory to a large variety of approved and experimental therapies. Already after the first therapeutic cycle, signs of arthritis and later also myositis and active skin eruptions disappeared. In ...

Interleukin-17A (IL-17A), also known as CTLA-8, is a pro-inflammatory cytokine member of a six-species family of proteins (IL-17A-17F).
Signaling mediated through the IL-2R, in conjunction with signals mediated through the T cell Ag receptor, promotes the proliferation and effector function of T cells (32). Some of the signals, such as up-regulation of the IL-2R α-chain, result from cooperative signals mediated both through the T cell Ag receptor as well as through the IL-2R itself; however, the relative role of signals delivered through these pathways has not been fully elucidated. Human tumor-reactive effector T cells have been shown to proliferate extensively in vitro in the presence of high-dose IL-2 alone (33). In addition, between 15 and 20% of melanoma and renal cancer patients treated with high-dose IL-2 alone respond to therapy (6), which may reflect the ability of IL-2 to maintain the proliferation of T cells that were activated by prior exposure to tumor Ags.. Interactions between the costimulatory receptor CD27 and its ligand, CD70, have also been found to play a key role in T lymphocyte activation, proliferation, ...

Author(s): Ebina, N; Gallardo, D; Shau, H; Golub, SH | Abstract: Interleukin 4 (IL-4) suppresses the interleukin 2 (IL-2) induced lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cell development from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Suppression is observed at high (1,000 U ml-1) as well as low (10 U ml-1) concentrations of IL-2. IL-4 needs to be present at the beginning of the IL-2 culture to exert the suppressive effect. IL-4 also inhibits the development of CD25 (Tac) antigen on the PBMC cultured in IL-2. Interleukin 1 (IL-1) can reverse the suppressive effect of IL-4 on LAK induction when added at the early phase of the IL-2 culture. IL-1 enhances IL-2 induced LAK development, which may partially explain the reversion of IL-4 inhibition by IL-1. IL-1 also reverses the inhibitory effect of IL-4 on the development of CD25 antigen expression, although IL-1 alone does not enhance the induction of CD25 expression in PBMC cultured by IL-2. Furthermore, IL-4 suppresses IL-2 induced IL-1 production in PBMC
Mouse interleukin-12p70 (IL-12p70) is a disulfide-linked heterodimer consisting of IL-12a (p35 subunit) and IL-12b (p40 subunit) that is mainly produced by macrophages and T lymphocytes. The IL-12a subunit also dimerizes with Ebi3 to form IL-35, and the IL-12b subunit dimerizes with IL-23a to form IL-23. IL-12, IL-23, IL-27, and IL-35 are all heterodimeric proteins and members of IL-12 cytokine family. IL-12p70 activates T cells and natural killer cells that stimulate the production of IFN-γ. It is involved in a number of disorders including peritonitis and chronic toxoplasmosis.The Mouse IL-12p70 Kit provides assay-specific components for the quantitative determination of endogenous IL-12p70 in mouse urine, serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants. ...
Sustained persistence and function of adoptively transferred T-cells are critical parameters for effective anti-tumor activity. To address this, our group has explored the mechanisms by which TLR agonist-induced cytokines, such as IL-12, are capable of efficiently priming CD8+ T-cells. IL-12 primed CD8+ T-cells upregulate the expression of the high affinity IL-2 receptor (CD25) and STAT5. Enhancement of these signaling components increases IL-2 mediated signaling events at low concentrations of IL-2. Blockade with anti-CD25 antibody effectively terminates this enhanced IL-2 signaling in IL-12 primed CD8+ T-cells. More importantly, IL-12 priming of CD8+ T-cells significantly increases in vivo proliferation as measured by CFSE dilution, and ex vivo recovery from lymphoid organs. Utilization of in vivo bioluminescent imaging of firefly luciferase transduced IL-12 primed T-cells demonstrated their ability to traffic into the tumor area, through lymph nodes and bone marrow. Finally, adoptive transfer ...
The R2-9A5 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse interleukin-12 (IL-12), a heterodimeric 75 kDa (p75) cytokine consisting of two covalently linked subunits, 40 kDa (p40) and 35 kDa (p35). IL-12 is secreted by activated monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells and T cells in response to bacterial pathogens or products such as lipopolysaccharides (LPS). IL-12 is a potent regulator of cell-mediated immune responses and plays a key role in the development of Th1 responses, leading to IFNγ and IL-2 production. The R2-9A5 antibody has been shown to neutralize the biological effects of IL-12 when administered |em|in vivo|/em|.

A simple in vitro experimental system was devised to reflect the in vivo generation of a T cell anamnestic response so that T cell differentiation could be examined at the level of lymphokine gene expression. Comparison of neonatal and adult T cells revealed that both populations expressed the genes for interleukin 2 (IL-2) and its receptor, but only adult T cells were capable of transcribing mRNAs for IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, interferon gamma, and granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor. However, neonatal T cells could be induced to undergo functional differentiation in vitro, thereby acquiring the capacity to express the lymphokine gene repertoire characteristic for adult T cells. These data suggest that the T cells generated from neonatal blood by a primary stimulation in vitro are functionally indistinguishable from the T cells in adult blood that presumably have undergone primary stimulation in vivo. Therefore, we propose that the term memory cell be applied to those T cells that ...
Transmembrane signaling of normal human T cells was explored with mAbs directed at TCR, CD2, CD4, CD5, or CD8 antigens and highly purified CD4+ T cells and CD8+ T cells. Our experiments explicitly show that: (a) crosslinkage of TCR with the CD2 antigen, and not independent crosslinking of TCR and of CD2 antigen or crosslinking of either protein with the CD4 or CD8 antigen induces significant proliferation independent of co-stimulatory signals (e.g., accessory cells, recombinant lymphokines, or tumor promoter), (b) F(ab)2 fragments of mAb directed at the TCR and F(ab)2 anti-CD2, crosslinked with F(ab)2 fragments of rabbit anti-mouse IgG, promote the proliferation of highly purified T cells, (c) a prompt and sustained increase in intracellular free Ca2+ concentration results from crosslinkage of TCR with the CD2 antigen, (d) T cell proliferation induced by this novel approach is curtailed by EGTA and by direct or competitive inhibitors of PKC, (e) crosslinkage of TCR with the CD2 antigen ...

Mechanism of Action: Immune modulator. Aldesleukin (recombinant IL-2; rIL-2) is a non-glycosylated interleukin-2 (IL-2) product. It is made via recombinant DNA technology that uses an E. coli strain containing an analog of the human IL-2 gene. The biological activity of aldesleukin is similar to that of endogenous IL-2. Aldesleukin is currently FDA-approved for treating metastatic renal cell carcinoma and melanoma.3 In HIV-related clinical trials, aldesleukin is the most commonly studied IL-2 product.6. IL-2 is a type I cytokine belonging to a subfamily of cytokines that uses the common γ-chain receptor. Physiologically, IL-2 is produced in secondary lymphoid organs, primarily by CD4 cells, following activation by antigen. Once bound to the IL-2 receptor, IL-2 can activate multiple signaling pathways, including the JAK-STAT, PI3K-AKT, and MAPK pathways.2,7-9. IL-2 is a T cell growth factor that promotes T cell proliferation and survival. It stimulates the cytotoxic activity of CD8 and natural ...
IL-2 is a secreted cytokine that is important for the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine is a heterotrimeric protein complex whose gamma chain is also shared by interleukin 4 (IL-4) and interleukin 7 (IL-7). The expression of this gene in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests an essential role of this gene in the immune response to antigenic stimuli.
