AB  - The systemic and extra- gonadal levels of 17 beta-estradiol (E2) change during aging, and affect the expression of estrogen receptors (ERs) in the immune cells of both females and males. The age-related cessation of ovarian function in females, as well as the tissue-specific expression of enzyme aromatase (estrogen synthase which significantly rises with the advancing age) in both males and females, both determine the concentration of E2 to which immune cells may be exposed. The present study was set up to investigate the direct influence of E2 in vitro on the secretory profile of peritoneal macrophages from young and naturally menopausal female rats, and from young and middle-aged male rats. The involvement of receptor(s) responsible for mediating the effects of E2 in vitro was examined by use of antagonists specific for ERa or ER beta. Whereas in macrophages from young female rats E2 treatment diminished interleukin (IL)-1 beta secretion, it increased it in young males, and the middleaged females. The in vitro E2 treatment increased tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha release by macrophages from young rats of both sexes, while it increased macrophage IL-6 release independently of both sex and age. At the same time, E2 decreased hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production in macrophages from females, and increased it in male rats of both ages, whereas it diminished nitric oxide (NO) release in all experimental groups. Inspite of the sex-and age-specific effects of E2 on macrophage urea release, E2 did not affect the NO/urea ratio in macrophages from female rats, and diminished it in macrophages from both young and middle-aged male rats. Independently of the sex and age, E2 stimulated the release of inflammatory cytokines predominantly via macrophage ER alpha, and inhibited the IL-1 beta release in young females via ER beta. In contrast, E2 increased macrophage H2O2 and urea production by activating ER beta, but diminished their release via ER alpha. Our study may contribute to better understanding of the complex role(s) that E2 may play in innate immunity during aging, and that are dependent of sex.

AB  - Aims: Some gut commensals can be protective, whereas others are implicated as necessary for development of inflammatory/autoimmune diseases. Peritoneal immune cells may play an important role in promoting auto-immunity in response to gut microbiota. This study investigated the phenotype and the function of peritoneal immune cells in the autoimmunity-resistant Albino Oxford (AO), and the autoimmunity-prone Dark Agouti (DA) rat strains upon stimulation with their own colonic E. coli or Enterococcus. Main methods: Rats were intraperitoneally injected with their own E. coli or Enterococcus. Peritoneal cells isolated two days later were tested for nitric oxide (NO) and cytokine production, and for arginase and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity. The phenotype of cells was determined using flow cytometry. Key findings: While the Enterococcus injection did not affect the composition of peritoneal cells in AO rats, the E. coli treatment increased the percentages of activated CD11b(int)HIS48(hi) neutrophils, and decreased the proportion of resident (CD11b(hi)HIS48(int/low), CD163+ CD86+) and anti-inflammatory CD68+ CD206+ macrophages. E. coli increased the production of NO and urea, but preserved their ratio in cells from AO rats. Conversely, both E. coli and Enterococcus diminished the proportion of resident and anti-inflammatory macrophages, increased the proportion of activated neutrophils, and induced inflammatory polarization of peritoneal cells in DA rats. However, injection of E. coli maintained the ratio of typical CD11b(int)HIS48(int) neutrophils in DA rats, which correlated with the sustained MPO activity. Significance: The rat strain differences in peritoneal cell response to own commensal microbiota may contribute to differential susceptibility to inflammatory/autoimmune diseases.

AB  - The current study investigated a potential modulating effect of orally applied Lactobacillus rhamnosus 64 (LB64) during the early postnatal period (day of life: similar to 3-30), during young adult period (day of life: 31-70) or throughout experiment, on parameters of trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis in adult rats. Treatment with LB64 during early postnatal, but not during young adult period reduced clinical damage score, neutrophil and macrophage infiltration into colon, the level of cytokine and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, but had no influence on other parameters of oxidative damage. Early postnatal treatment with LB64 also increased the diversity of fecal Bifidobacteria and Eubacteria, and improved maturation of ileal villi in 30-days old rats. When LB64 is applied during a critical period early in life, it affects immune system functioning of adults, probably by interactions with the mucosal immune system of the gastrointestinal tract that provides immune system maturation and shapes the overall immune response.

AB  - The aim of this study was to examine the influence of sex on age-related changes in phenotype and functional capacity of rat macrophages. The potential role of estradiol as a contributing factor to a sex difference in macrophage function with age was also examined. Thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages derived from the young (2 months old) and the naturally senescent intact middle-aged (16 months old) male and female rats were tested for cytokine secretion and antimicrobial activity (NO and H2O2 production and myeloperoxidase activity). Serum concentration of estradiol and the expression of estrogen receptor (ER)alpha and ER beta on freshly isolated peritoneal macrophages were also examined. Decreased secretion of IL-1 beta and IL-6 by macrophages from middle-aged compared to the young females was accompanied with the lesser density of macrophage ER alpha expression and the lower systemic level of estradiol, whereas the opposite was true for middle-aged male rats. Macrophages in the middle-aged females, even with the diminished circulating estradiol levels, produce increased amount of IL-6, and comparable amounts of IL-1 beta, TNF-alpha, and NO to that measured in macrophages from the middle-aged males. Age-related changes in macrophage phenotype and the antimicrobial activity were independent of macrophage ER alpha/ER beta expression and estradiol level in both male and female rats. Although our study suggests that the sex difference in the level of circulating estradiol may to some extent contribute to sex difference in macrophage function of middle-aged rats, it also points to more complex hormonal regulation of peritoneal macrophage activity in females.

AB  - Rats of Albino Oxford (AO) strain in our animal facility exhibit a longer average healthy life span than rats of Dark Agouit (DA) strain. Since chronic activation of macrophages contributes to chronic low level inflammation common in older age, elucidation of the changes in middle-aged rats could be useful in prevention of unbalanced inflammatory response in advanced age. We have analysed the phenotype of unelicited and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages from young and middle-aged DA and AO rats and tested functions of these cells following stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in vitro. Unelicited cells from middle-aged DA rats produced higher amounts of proinflammatory mediators interleukin-6 (IL-6) and nitric oxide (NO), but have a diminished response to LPS stimulation then cells from young rats, in spite of increased frequency of TLR4- and CD14-expressing mature macrophages. Injection of thioglycollate robustly increased overall cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, while diminishing their response to LPS stimulation. In middle-aged DA rats injection of thioglycollate diminished IL-6 production, but increased it in response to LPS stimulation. Quite the contrary to DA rats, the macrophages from middle-aged AO rats have released diminished levels of TNF-alpha, and NO, whereas urea production was strongly increased, when compared to the macrophages from young rats. Although the thioglycollate injection has increased the proportion of CD86(+)MHCII(+) mature macrophages in young rats, and percentages of activated TLR4(+) macrophages in both age groups of AO rats, it has not affected the cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, and the TNF-alpha production in middle-aged rats' macrophages. Moreover, the injection of thioglycollate has robustly increased the production of urea in macrophages derived from both age groups of AO rats. Although middle-aged rats of both strains were healthy during experiment, differences between the inflammatory responses of peritoneal macrophages of middle-aged rats of these strains might be one of the contributing factors defining their health in their advanced age. Development of strategies for the prevention of undesirable inflammatory changes in the elderly would benefit from the prospective study of the middle-aged. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc.

Unelicited cells from middle-aged DA rats produced higher amounts of proinflammatory mediators interleukin-6 (IL-6) and nitric oxide (NO), but have a diminished response to LPS stimulation then cells from young rats, in spite of increased frequency of TLR4- and CD14-expressing mature macrophages. Injection of thioglycollate robustly increased overall cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, while diminishing their response to LPS stimulation. In middle-aged DA rats injection of thioglycollate diminished IL-6 production, but increased it in response to LPS stimulation. Quite the contrary to DA rats, the macrophages from middle-aged AO rats have released diminished levels of TNF-alpha, and NO, whereas urea production was strongly increased, when compared to the macrophages from young rats. Although the thioglycollate injection has increased the proportion of CD86(+)MHCII(+) mature macrophages in young rats, and percentages of activated TLR4(+) macrophages in both age groups of AO rats, it has not affected the cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, and the TNF-alpha production in middle-aged rats' macrophages. Moreover, the injection of thioglycollate has robustly increased the production of urea in macrophages derived from both age groups of AO rats. Although middle-aged rats of both strains were healthy during experiment, differences between the inflammatory responses of peritoneal macrophages of middle-aged rats of these strains might be one of the contributing factors defining their health in their advanced age. Development of strategies for the prevention of undesirable inflammatory changes in the elderly would benefit from the prospective study of the middle-aged. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc.

AB  - Macrophages undergo significant functional alterations during aging. The aim of the present study was to investigate changes of rat macrophage functions and response to M1/M2 polarization signals with age. Therefore, resident and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages from young (3-month-old) and aged (18-19-month-old) rats were tested for phagocytic capacity and ability to secrete inflammatory mediators following in vitro stimulation with LPS and GM-CSF, and IL-4, prototypic stimulators for classically (M1) and alternatively activated (M2) macrophages, respectively. Aging increased the frequency of monocyte-derived (CCR7+ CD68+) and the most mature (CD163+ CD68+) macrophages within resident and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages, respectively. The ability to phagocyte zymosan of none of these two cell subsets was affected by either LPS and GM-CSF or IL-4. The upregulated production of IL-1 beta, IL-6 and IL-10 and downregulated that of TGF-beta was observed in response to LPS in resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from rats of both ages. GM-CSF elevated production of IL-1 beta and IL-6 in resident macrophages from aged rats and in thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from young rats. Unexpectedly, IL-4 augmented production of proinflammatory mediators, IL-1 beta and IL-6, in resident macrophages from aged rats. In both resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages aging decreased NO/urea ratio, whereas LPS but not GM-SCF, shifted this ratio toward NO in the macrophages from animals of both ages. Conversely, IL-4 reduced NO/urea ratio in resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from young rats only. In conclusion, our study showed that aging diminished GM-CSF-triggered polarization of elicited macrophages and caused paradoxical IL-4-driven polarization of resident macrophages toward proinflammatory M1 phenotype. This age-related deregulation of macrophage inflammatory mediator secretion and phagocytosis in response to M1/M2 activators may lead to the deficient control of infectious and/or inflammatory diseases in advanced age.

AB  - Problem The influence of unopposed estrogen replacement/isolated progesterone deficiency on macrophage production of pro-inflammatory/anti-inflammatory mediators in the post-reproductive age was studied. Method of study Considering that in the rats post-ovariectomy the circulating estradiol, but not progesterone level rises to the values in sham-operated controls, 20-month-old rats ovariectomized at the age of 10 months served as an experimental model. Estrogen and progesterone receptor expression, secretion of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, and arginine metabolism end-products were examined in splenic and peritoneal macrophages under basal conditions and following lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulation in vitro. Results Almost all peritoneal and a subset of splenic macrophages expressed the intracellular progesterone receptor. Ovariectomy diminished cytokine production by splenic (IL-1 beta) and peritoneal (TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-10) macrophages and increased the production of IL-10 by splenic and TGF-beta by peritoneal cells under basal conditions. Following LPS stimulation, splenic macrophages from ovariectomized rats produced less TNF-alpha and more IL-10, whereas peritoneal macrophages produced less IL-1 beta and TGF-beta than the corresponding cells from sham-operated rats. Ovariectomy diminished urea production in both subpopulations of LPS-stimulated macrophages. Conclusion Although long-lasting isolated progesterone deficiency in the post-reproductive age differentially affects cytokine production in the macrophages from distinct tissue compartments, in both subpopulations, it impairs the pro- inflammatory/anti-inflammatory cytokine secretory balance.

AB  - This study investigated a putative contribution of mast cells and C-sensory fibers to differences in the development of inflammatory edema following the injection of concanavalin A (Con A) into the hind paws of Dark Agouti (DA) and Albino Oxford (AO) rats. The treatment of adult rats with mast cell-depletor compound 48/80 and neonatal depletion of C-sensory fibers independently revealed that leukocyte composition of the inflamed paws and lymph nodes during local inflammatory response to Con A was generally regulated in a similar way in DA and AO rat strains. However, in DA and AO rats, the decrease and the increase of Con A-induced plasma extravasation were associated with mast cell depletion and activation, respectively, whereas neonatal capsaicin treatment activated dermal mast cells and potentiated inflammatory plasma extravasation only in adult rats of DA strain. Hence, strain differences in Emphasis Type="Strikethrough" the development of the inflammatory response to Con A are probably controlled by the differences in the interplay between mast cells and C-sensory fibers in DA and AO rats.

AB  - We have investigated the humoral immune response to antigens of predominant gut aerobic bacterial strains (i.e. Escherichia coli) over the course of adjuvant arthritis and oil-induced arthritis in two inbred rat strains: Dark Agouti (DA) and Albino Oxford (AO). We report the presence of antibodies specific to proteins of Escherichia coli in molecular weight range between 20-30 kDa in sera of diseased DA rats, and the absence of these antibodies in the sera of AO rats. In DA rats, CFA and IFA provoked a stronger antibody response to Escherichia coli, especially of the IgG2b antibody class. Intramuscular administration of Escherichia coli preceding the adjuvant arthritis induction had no effect on the development and course of disease, as well as on the activation of T cells in the draining inguinal lymph nodes. Higher serum levels of natural and induced IgA antibodies, combined with a higher CD3(+)CD26(+) cell percentage were found in AO rats. The observed correlation between the serologic response to commensal flora and rats' genetic background as a defining factor for arthritis susceptibility may contribute to the process of creating a favorable (or less favorable) milieu for arthritis development.

AB  - In humans, usual aging, differently from successful aging, is associated with deregulation of proinflammatory/anti-inflammatory cytokine balance. The corresponding data from rat studies are limited. Therefore, we examined (i) cytokine messenger RNA (mRNA) profile of fresh peritoneal cells from 6-(adult), 24-(old), and 31-month-old (long-lived) AO rats and (ii) proinflammatory (IL-1 beta and IL-6) and antiinflammatory (IL-10) cytokine, NO, and urea production in their LPS-stimulated cultures. Comparing with adult rats, cells from old ones expressed lower amount of TNF-alpha and IL-6 mRNAs, but greater amount of IL-1 beta mRNA. On the other hand, cells fromlong-lived rats exhibited a dramatic increase in IL-10 mRNA expression followed by diminished TNF-alpha and IL-6 mRNA expression, and comparable expression of IL-1 beta mRNA relative to adult rats. Consequently, IL-10/IL-1 beta mRNA ratio was greater in cells from long-lived rats than in adult and old rats. In LPS-stimulated peritoneal cell cultures (contained = 95 % macrophages) from old rats, concentration of common proinflammatory cytokines was higher than in those from adult rats. Comparing with adult and old rats, in LPS-stimulated macrophage cultures from long-lived rats, TNF-alpha and IL-6 concentrations were lower; IL-1 beta concentration was comparable or greater (in respect to adult rats), whereas that of IL-10 was strikingly higher. Consistently, in macrophage cultures from long-lived rats, NO (iNOS activity marker)/urea (arginase activity marker) ratio was less and not different from that in old and adult rats, respectively. The study suggests that macrophages from longlived rats, differently from those of old ones, have substantial ability to limit proinflammatory mediator production, which may contribute to their longevity.

abstract = "In humans, usual aging, differently from successful aging, is associated with deregulation of proinflammatory/anti-inflammatory cytokine balance. The corresponding data from rat studies are limited. Therefore, we examined (i) cytokine messenger RNA (mRNA) profile of fresh peritoneal cells from 6-(adult), 24-(old), and 31-month-old (long-lived) AO rats and (ii) proinflammatory (IL-1 beta and IL-6) and antiinflammatory (IL-10) cytokine, NO, and urea production in their LPS-stimulated cultures. Comparing with adult rats, cells from old ones expressed lower amount of TNF-alpha and IL-6 mRNAs, but greater amount of IL-1 beta mRNA. On the other hand, cells fromlong-lived rats exhibited a dramatic increase in IL-10 mRNA expression followed by diminished TNF-alpha and IL-6 mRNA expression, and comparable expression of IL-1 beta mRNA relative to adult rats. Consequently, IL-10/IL-1 beta mRNA ratio was greater in cells from long-lived rats than in adult and old rats. In LPS-stimulated peritoneal cell cultures (contained = 95 % macrophages) from old rats, concentration of common proinflammatory cytokines was higher than in those from adult rats. Comparing with adult and old rats, in LPS-stimulated macrophage cultures from long-lived rats, TNF-alpha and IL-6 concentrations were lower; IL-1 beta concentration was comparable or greater (in respect to adult rats), whereas that of IL-10 was strikingly higher. Consistently, in macrophage cultures from long-lived rats, NO (iNOS activity marker)/urea (arginase activity marker) ratio was less and not different from that in old and adult rats, respectively. The study suggests that macrophages from longlived rats, differently from those of old ones, have substantial ability to limit proinflammatory mediator production, which may contribute to their longevity.",

AB  - Altered functions of macrophages with aging contribute to impairment of both innate and adaptive immunity in the elderly. The present study aimed to examine strain specificity of age-related changes in the phenotypic and functional characteristics of macrophages from DA and AO rats, which differ in average life span. Resident peritoneal macrophages from young (10-12 weeks old) and aged (98-104 weeks old) rats were tested for: (a) the surface expression of TLR4 and CD14; (b) the basal and LPS-induced production of TNF-alpha and IL-10; and (c) the basal and LPS-induced activity of iNOS and arginase, by measuring the levels of NO and urea, respectively, in the culture supernatants. Aging elevated TLR4 macrophage surface density in rats of both strains. Conversely, the age-related decrease in the surface density of CD14 co-receptor was detected only on macrophages from aged DA rats. Accordingly, with aging in DA rats, contrary to AO rats, upon LPS-stimulation both TNF-alpha and IL-10 levels decreased in culture supernatants. However, in rats of both strains TNF-alpha stimulation index (LPS-induced over basal production) remained stable with aging, but it was significantly greater in AO rats. Furthermore, with aging, IL-10 stimulation index decreased and increased in DA and AO rats, respectively. Age-related shift in urea stimulation index complied with the changes of IL-10 stimulation index during aging. In conclusion, the study suggests that the preserved ability of macrophages from aged AO rats to synthesize not only proinflammatory TNF-alpha, but also immunoregulatory IL-10 cytokine most likely contributes to their longer average life compared with DA rats.

AB  - Aims: Macrophages are heterogeneous population of inflammatory cells and, in response to the microenvironment, become differentially activated. The objective of the study was to explore macrophage effector functions during different inflammatory conditions in two rat strains. Main methods: We have investigated the effects of in vivo treatment with mast cell-degranulating compound 48/80 and/or thioglycollate on peritoneal macrophage phagocytosis and capacity to secrete hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (INF-alpha) and nitric oxide (NO) in Dark Agouti (DA) and Albino Oxford (AO) rat strains. Besides, fresh peritoneal cells were examined for the expression of ED1, ED2 and CD86 molecules. Key findings: In thioglycollate-elicited macrophages, increased proportion of ED1 + cells was accompanied with elevated phagocytosis of zymosan (DA strain), whereas increased expression level of CD86 molecule on ED2 + macrophages matched elevated secretory capacity for H2O2, TNF-alpha and NO (AO rats). Although mast cell degranulation induced by compound 48/80 increased the percentages of ED2 + macrophages in both rat strains, the proportion of ED2 + cells expressing CD86 molecule was decreased and increased in DA and AO rats, respectively. Furthermore, in DA strain compound 48/80 diminished macrophage secretion of NO, but stimulated all macrophage functions tested in AO strain. If applied concomitantly, the compound 48/80 additively increased macrophage activity induced by thioglycollate in AO rats. Significance: Macrophages from DA and AO rat strains show different susceptibility to mediators released from mast cells, suggesting that strain-dependant predisposition(s) toward particular activation pattern is decisive for the macrophage efficacy in response to inflammatory agents.

AB  - The phenotype and function of tissue macrophages substantially depend on the cellular milieu and biological effector molecules, such as steroid hormones, to which they are exposed. Furthermore, in female rats, aging is associated with the altered macrophage functioning and the increased estrogen level is followed by a decrease in that of progesterone. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the influence of estradiol/progesterone balance on rat macrophage function and phenotype throughout whole adult lifespan. We ovariectomized rats at the late prepubertal age or at the very end of reproductive lifespan, and examined the expression of ED2 (CD163, a marker of mature resident macrophages related to secretion of inflammatory mediators) on peritoneal macrophages and their ability to produce TNF-alpha and NO upon LPS-stimulation at different age points. In addition, to delineate direct and indirect effects of estrogen, we assessed the in vitro influence of different concentrations of 17 beta-estradiol on LPS-induced macrophage TNF-alpha and NO production. Results showed that: ( a) the low frequency of ED2(high) cells amongst peritoneal macrophages of aged rats was accompanied with the reduced TNF-alpha, but not NO production; (b) estradiol level gradually increased following ovariectomy; (c) macrophage ED2 expression and TNF-alpha production were dependent on estradiol/progesterone balance and they changed in the same direction; (d) changes in estradiol/progesterone balance differentially affected macrophages TNF-alpha and NO production; and (e) estradiol exerted pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effects on macrophages in vivo and in vitro, respectively. Overall, our study discloses that estradiol/progesterone balance contributes to the fine-tuning of rat macrophage secretory capacity, and adds to a better understanding of the ovarian steroid hormone role in the regulation of macrophage function, and its significance for the age-associated changes in innate immunity.

Catecholamines modulate the production of inflammatory mediators by macrophages. It was hypothesized that adrenal hormones affect tumour necrosis factor- production in rat macrophages by altering the autocrine/paracrine action of catecholamines. center dot What is the main finding and its importance? In rat macrophages, adrenalectomy increased tyrosine hydroxylase expression, decreased monoamine oxidase-A mRNA expression (due to the absence of adrenal catecholamines and glucocorticoids, respectively) and augmented 2-adrenoceptor expression (due to lack of adrenal catecholamines). However, notwithstanding these changes, propranolol treatment increased lipopolysaccharide-stimulated tumour necrosis factor- production in macrophages from adrenalectomized and non-operated rats to a similar extent. Catecholamines modulate the production of inflammatory mediators by macrophages in an autocrine/paracrine manner. They also tune 2-adrenoceptor expression. Glucocorticoids influence catecholamine metabolism and adrenoceptor expression in many cell types. We hypothesized that adrenal hormones affect the production of tumour necrosis factor- (TNF-) and NO by macrophages by altering the modulatory influence of catecholamines. To prove the hypothesis, peritoneal exudate macrophages from propranolol-treated non-operated and adrenalectomized rats and from corticosterone-supplemented adrenalectomized rats were examined for lipopolysaccharide-stimulated NO and TNF- production in vitro and for expression of 2-adrenoceptors and major catecholamine-metabolizing enzymes. Glucocorticoid deprivation increased NO production by macrophages, whereas 4 days of propranolol treatment was ineffective in this respect. However, propranolol treatment, via 2-adrenoceptor blockade, increased production of TNF- by macrophages in both non-operated and adrenalectomized rats (showing dramatically enhanced TNF- production due to a lack of circulating glucocorticoids) for the same value. The expression of 2-adrenoceptor was increased in peritoneal macrophages that were freshly isolated from non-operated, propranolol-treated and adrenalectomized rats (due to adrenal catecholamine deficiency). Propranolol did not affect macrophage 2-adrenoceptor expression in adrenalectomized rats. Given that propranolol increased the density of macrophage tyrosine hydroxylase expression only in non-operated rats and affected the mRNA expression of monoamine oxidase-A in neither non-operated nor adrenalectomized animals, a significant influence of propranolol on peritoneal exudate cell noradrenaline content was found only in non-operated rats. A lack of circulating adrenal hormones also affected noradrenaline metabolism and content in peritoneal exudate cells including macrophages. Collectively, despite differences in the abundance of macrophage catecholamine2-adrenoceptor system components and in the TNF- response to lipopolysaccharide between adrenalectomized and non-operated rats, propranolol increased TNF- production by the same amount in macrophages from these two groups of animals.

AB  - For many years, the central nervous system and the immune system were considered two autonomous entities. However, extensive research in the field of neuroimmunomodulation during the past decades has demonstrated the presence of different neuropeptides and their respective receptors in the immune cells. More importantly, it has provided evidence for the direct effects of neuropeptides on the immune cell functions. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is generally considered the most abundant peptide in the central and peripheral nervous system. However, it is also distinguished by exhibiting pleiotropic functions in many other physiological systems, including the immune system. NPY affects the functions of the cells of the adaptive and innate immunity. In this respect, NPY is known to modulate immune cell trafficking, T helper cell differentiation, cytokine secretion, natural killer cell activity, phagocytosis and the production of reactive oxygen species. The specific Y receptors have been found in immune cells, and their expression is amplified upon immune stimulation. Different Y receptor subtypes may mediate an opposite effect of NPY on the particular function, thus underlining its regulatory role. Since the immune cells are capable of producing NPY upon appropriate stimulation, this peptide can regulate immune cell functions in an autocrine/paracrine manner. NPY also has important implications in several immune-mediated disorders, which affirms the clear need for further investigation of its role in either the mechanisms of the disease development or its possible therapeutic capacity. This review summarises the key points of NPY's mission throughout the immune system.

AB  - We have investigated the immune response to commensal bacterial species in the two inbred rat strains: Dark Agouti (DA) and Albino Oxford (AO). The predominant Gram-negative aerobe in our rats' intestinal bacterial flora was Escherichia coli, while Proteus mirabilis was isolated only from DA rat strain. We report that sera from both DA and AO rat strains contain specific IgG against predominant intestinal flora. Intramuscular administration of commensal bacterial antigens provoked only Th1-type antibody response in AO rats while DA rats developed mixed Th1- and Th2-type antibody response to E. coli and Th1-type response to P. mirabilis antigens. Weaker antibody production to own E. coli and higher serum levels of natural IgG and IgA P. mirabilis-specific antibodies combined with higher CD3+ cells proliferation was found in AO rats. Strain difference in the pattern of antibody production and differential regulation of immune response to commensal bacteria may contribute to the marked differences in the immune reactivity of AO and DA rats.

Suppression of EAE was accompanied by the reduced expression of costimulatory CD80 and CD86 molecules on ED1+ macrophages and OX62+ dendritic cells in draining lymph nodes during the inductive phase of EAE. An inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase 4, an enzyme which terminates the action of NPY on 11 receptor subtype, did not sustain the suppressive effect of NPY on the EAE development, suggesting involvement of Y2 and Y5 receptors.

AB  - Much evidence has identified a direct anatomical and functional link between the brain and the immune system, with glucocorticoids (GCs), catecholamines (CAs), and neuropeptide Y (NPY) as its end-point mediators. This suggests the important role of these mediators in immune system homeostasis and the pathogenesis of inflammatory autoimmune diseases. However, although it is clear that these mediators can modulate lymphocyte maturation and the activity of distinct immune cell types, their putative role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease is not yet completely understood. We have contributed to this field by discovering the influence of CAs and GCs on fine-tuning thymocyte negative selection and, in particular, by pointing to the putative CA-mediated mechanisms underlying this influence. Furthermore, we have shown that CAs are implicated in the regulation of regulatory T-cell development in the thymus. Moreover, our investigations related to macrophage biology emphasize the complex interaction between GCs, CAs and NPY in the modulation of macrophage functions and their putative significance for the pathogenesis of autoimmune inflammatory diseases.

AB  - Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a peptide consisted of 36 amino acids. It is designated by a capital letter Y due to the presence of many tyrosine residues which are abbreviated by the letter Y in the single letter amino acid code. NPY is one of the most evolutionary conserved peptides, originally isolated from pig brain (Tatemoto et al. 1982; Larhammar 1996). Due to a very wide tissue distribution of NPY and its significance for the human and animal physiology, peptides with high structural homology to NPY, e.g., peptide YY (PYY), pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and their truncated forms NPY2-36, NPY3-36 and PYY3-36, sharing amino acid backbone that forms a hair-pin turn called the PP-fold (Fuhlendorff et al. 1990), are now specified as members of NPY family. NPY was previously considered a companion and amplifier of norepinephrine activity. It is now known that NPY could be stored alone in small vesicles of sympathetic nerves, and in combination with catecholamines in large vesicles (Fried et al. 1985). Although NPY is preferentially released under conditions of high frequency nerve stimulation, the endogenous NPY modulates the effects of norepinephrine at both high and low levels of sympathetic nerve activity (Han et al. 1998).

AB  - The present study tests the hypothesis that the difference in the intensity of paw edema found between the Dark Agouti (DA) and Albino Oxford (AO) rat strains originates from the distinct participation of histamine, serotonin and their corresponding receptors in Concanavalin A (Con A)-induced inflammation. DA and AO male rats were intraplantarly injected with specific receptor antagonists prior to Con A, and the intensity of inflammation was determined by measuring the paw diameter. Our results have showed that histamine H1 and H2 receptor antagonists reduced the Con A-induced paw edema in DA rats, while serotonin 5HT3 receptor antagonist diminished the inflammation in both DA and AO rat strains. The calcium channel blocker did not change Con A-induced inflammation. Strain differences in the intensity and kinetics of inflammation observed between the DA and AO rats are most likely defined by the diversity of mediators released and their receptors activated upon Con A injection.
AB  - Testirana je hipoteza da razlike u intenzitetu inflamatornog edema šape indukovanog konkanavalinom A u pacova Dark Agouti (DA) i Albino Oxford (AO) soja potiču od različitog doprinosa histamina i serotonina i njihovih odgovarajućih receptora. Mužjaci pacova DA i AO soja su intraplantarno tretirani antagonistima specifičnih receptora pre izazivanja inflamacije konkanavalinom A i intenzitet inflamacije je praćen merenjem dijametra šape. Naši rezultati su ukazali da antagonisti histaminskih H1 i H2 receptora smanjuju edem šape indukovan konkanavalinom A u DA pacova, dok antagonist serotoninskih 5HT3 receptora smanjuje edem šape u oba soja pacova. Blokator kalcijumskih kanala ne utiče na inflamaciju izazvanu konkanavalinom A. Razlike u intenzitetu i kinetici inflamatornog odgovora indukovanog konkanavalinom A između DA i AO sojeva su najverovatnije posledica razlika u oslobođ enim medijatorima i aktivaciji odgovarajućih receptora nakon injekcije konkanavalina A.

AB  - Neuropeptide Y (NPY) has been reported to be a potent anti-inflammatory peptide with ability to directly modulate activity of granulocytes and macrophages. The present study aimed to correlate the effects of NPY in vivo on lipopolysaccharide-induced air-pouch exudates cells and in vitro on peripheral blood leukocytes functions. The role of different Y receptors was examined using NPY-related peptides and antagonists with diverse subtype specificity and selectivity for Y receptors. Y1, Y2 and Y5 receptors were detected on air-pouch exudates cells (flow cytometry) and peripheral blood granulocytes (immunocito-chemistry). NPY in vivo reduced inflammatory cells accumulation into the air pouch, and decreased their adherence and phagocytic capacity via Y2/Y5 and Y1/Y2 receptors, respectively. Quite the opposite, NPY in vitro potentiated adhesiveness and phagocytosis of peripheral blood granulocytes and monocytes by activating Y1 receptor. The differences between in vivo and in vitro effects of NPY on rat inflammatory cells functions are mostly due to dipeptidyl peptidase 4 activity. In addition, suppressive effect of NPY in vivo is highly dependent on the local microenvironment, peptide truncation and specific Y receptors interplay. (C) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

AB  - It has been acknowledged that aging exerts detrimental effects on cells of the innate immune system and that neuropeptides, including neuropeptide Y (NPY) and NPY-related peptides fine-tune the activity of these cells through a receptor specific mechanism. The present study investigated the age-dependent potential of peptide YY (PYY) to modulate different granulocyte functions. The PYY reduced the carrageenan-elicited granulocyte accumulation into the air-pouch of aged (24 months) rats, and markedly decreased the phagocytosis of zymosan, as well as the H(2)O(2) production, when applied in vivo (20 mu g/air-pouch). The anti-inflammatory effect of PYY was less prominent in adult (8 months) and young (3 months) rats. However, the proportions of granulocytes expressing Y1, Y2 and Y5 receptor subtypes were significantly lower in both aged and young rats when compared to adult rats. Furthermore, the aging was found to be associated with the diminished dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DP4, an enzyme converting the NPY and PYY to Y2/Y5 receptor selective agonists) activity in plasma. In conclusion, the diverse age-related anti-inflammatory effect of PYY in rats originates from different expression levels of Y1, Y2, and Y5 receptor subtypes in addition to different plasma DP4 activity.

AB  - We have investigated the phenotype of peritoneal cells and the functions of peritoneal macrophages obtained from experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE)-susceptible Dark Agouti (DA) and EAE-resistant Albino Oxford (AO) rat strains on days 1, 3 and 7 post immunization with encephalitogen. Resident peritoneal cells from immunized and non-immunized rats of both strains were subjected to flow cytometric analyzes and after adherence were tested for zymosan phagocytosis, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and nitric oxide (NO) production. In non-immunized rats, macrophages from the DA rat strain phagocytosed more zymosan but produced less H2O2 than cells from the AO strain, while both strains produced comparable amounts of NO. Immunization increased phagocytosis in DA rats' cells, but decreased both phagocytosis and H2O2 production in cells from AO rats. Overall higher phagocyte ability in DA rats was associated with a significantly larger population of ED1+ cells (macrophages and dendritic cells), in contrast to a more pronounced expression of ED2 antigen (resident macrophages) on cells from AO rats. Immunization also increased the expression of CD11b molecule on non-resident ED2-macrophages of DA, but not of AO rats. The early and subtle phenotype changes in peritoneal cells of both rat strains might mirror the mechanism contributing to their different sensitivity to the induction of autoimmunity.
