Tragically common among children in sub-Saharan Africa, cerebral malaria is characterized by rapid progression to coma and death. In this study, we used a model of cerebral malaria appearing in C57BL/6 WT mice after infection with the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei ANKA. Expression and cellular localization of the brain water channel aquaporin-4 (AQP4) was investigated during the neurological syndrome. Semiquantitative real-time PCR comparing uninfected and infected mice showed a reduction of brain AQP4 transcript in cerebral malaria, and immunoblots revealed reduction of brain AQP4 protein. Reduction of brain AQP4 protein was confirmed in cerebral malaria by quantitative immunogold EM; however, polarized distribution of AQP4 at the perivascular and subpial astrocyte membranes was not altered. To further examine the role of AQP4 in cerebral malaria, WT mice and littermates genetically deficient in AQP4 were infected with P. berghei. Upon development of cerebral malaria, WT and AQP4-null mice exhibited similar increases in width of perivascular astroglial end-feet in brain. Nevertheless, the AQP4-null mice exhibited more severe signs of cerebral malaria with greater brain edema, although disruption of the blood-brain barrier was similar in both groups. In longitudinal studies, cerebral malaria appeared nearly 1 d earlier in the AQP4-null mice, and reduced survival was noted when chloroquine rescue was attempted. We conclude that the water channel AQP4 confers partial protection against cerebral malaria.
|Reduced contact sensitivity reactions in mice treated with monoclonal antibodies to leukocyte function-associated molecule-1 and intercellular adhesion molecule-1. |

We have investigated the effect of the administration of mAb against leukocyte function-associated molecule-1 (CD11a/CD18) and intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (CD54) on the delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction in 2,4-dinitro-1-fluorobenzene-sensitized CD2F1 mice. An i.p. injection of the mAb FD441.8 against CD11a at the time of ear challenge led to an almost complete inhibition of ear swelling compared with control animals. Administration of anti-CD54 mAb, 3E2 or YN1/1.7.4, before challenge, resulted in approximately 50% reduction of the delayed-type hypersensitivity response. The decrease in ear swelling reflected a profound inhibition of the edema and the cell infiltration in ears from animals treated with anti-CD11a, and a partial inhibition with anti-CD54 treatment. In addition, the threefold increase in the number of cells recovered from the draining lymph nodes 24 h after challenge in sensitized mice injected with normal IgG was ablated in mice treated with anti-CD11a and partially reduced in anti-CD54-treated animals. Immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry analysis demonstrated that the in vivo administered anti-CD11a mAb was associated with the surface of the majority of the cells in the lymph nodes 24 h after injection and challenge, whereas the anti-intercellular adhesion molecule-1 mAb reacted preferentially with the vascular endothelium. It is concluded that leukocyte function-associated molecule-1 and intercellular adhesion molecule-1 contribute to the generation of an optimal delayed-type hypersensitivity response.
|Adhesion molecules on murine brain microvascular endothelial cells: expression and regulation of ICAM-1 and Lgp 55. |
Fabry, Z, et al.
J. Neuroimmunol., 36: 1-11 (1992) 1992
The mechanisms for the initiation of immune reactions in the central nervous system are poorly understood. In this report, we describe the presence of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and Lgp 55 (suggested mouse homologue of human intercellular adhesion molecule-2, ICAM-2) on the surface of brain microvessel endothelium (EN) cells and show in vitro induction of ICAM-1 molecules on EN cells with pro-inflammatory cytokines. ICAM-1 expression was detected using flow cytometry analysis with biotinylated anti-ICAM-1 antibody (YN1/1.7.4). Lgp 55 expression was characterized using PA3 monoclonal antibody. According to our results, 30-40% of the non-activated brain EN cells expressed ICAM-1 and 15-20% expressed Lgp 55 molecules. The ICAM-1 molecule expression was increased after the activation of the cells with recombinant murine gamma interferon (IFN-gamma), tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha), and interleukin-1 alpha (IL1-alpha) in a dose-dependent manner. The increased ICAM-1 expression was detected as early as 2 h following the cytokine treatment and reached its maximum after 24 h. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) did not influence the expression of ICAM-1 molecule. Lgp 55 molecule does not seem to be regulated by pro-inflammatory cytokines. ICAM-1 and Lgp 55 expression was found to be polarized on the luminal surface of EN by confocal laser microscopy suggesting accessibility for leukocytes. Inducible ICAM-1 expression may play a critical role in formation of inflammatory reactions inside the central nervous system.
|On the species specificity of the interaction of LFA-1 with intercellular adhesion molecules. |
Johnston, S C, et al.
J. Immunol., 145: 1181-7 (1990) 1990
Species restrictions in immune cell interactions have been demonstrated both in Ag-specific responses of T lymphocytes and the phenomenon of natural attachment. To determine the possible contribution of adhesion receptors to these restrictions, we have studied binding between the murine and human homologues of LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and ICAM employing purified human LFA-1 and ICAM-1 (CD54) bound to solid substrates. Murine cell lines bind to purified human LFA-1 through ICAM-1 and at least one other counter-receptor. This provides evidence for multiple counter-receptors for LFA-1 in the mouse as well as in the human. In contrast to binding of murine ICAM-1 to human LFA-1, murine LFA-1 does not bind to human ICAM-1. The species specificity maps to the LFA-1 alpha subunit, because mouse x human hybrid cells expressing the human alpha subunit associated with a mouse beta subunit bind to human ICAM-1, whereas those with a human beta subunit associated with a murine alpha subunit do not. Increased adhesiveness for ICAM-1 stimulated by phorbol esters could be demonstrated for hybrid LFA-1 molecules with human alpha and murine beta subunits.
