Osteoblastic PLEKHO1 contributes to joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis
Publication in refereed journal


摘要Background: Osteoblasts participating in the inflammation regulation gradually obtain concerns. However, its role in joint inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is largely unknown. Here, we investigated the role of osteoblastic pleckstrin homology domain-containing family O member 1 (PLEKHO1), a negative regulator of osteogenic lineage activity, in regulating joint inflammation in RA.

Methods: The level of osteoblastic PLEKHO1 in RA patients and collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mice was examined. The role of osteoblastic PLEKHO1 in joint inflammation was evaluated by a CIA model and a K/ BxN serumtransfer arthritis (STA) model which were induced in osteoblast-specific Plekho1 conditional knockoutmice and mice expressing high Plekho1 exclusively in osteoblasts, respectively. The effect of osteoblastic PLEKHO1 inhibitionwas explored in a CIAmicemodel and a non-human primate arthritismodel. The mechanismof osteoblastic PLEKHO1 in regulating joint inflammation were performed by a series of in vitro studies.

Results: PLEKHO1 was highly expressed in osteoblasts from RA patients and CIA mice. Osteoblastic Plekho1 deletion ameliorated joint inflammation, whereas overexpressing Plekho1 only within osteoblasts exacerbated local inflammation in CIAmice and STAmice. PLEKHO1was required for TRAF2-mediated RIP1 ubiquitination to activate NF-.B for inducing inflammatory cytokines production in osteoblasts. Moreover, osteoblastic PLEKHO1 inhibition diminished joint inflammation and promoted bone formation in CIA mice and non-human primate arthritis model.

Conclusions: These data strongly suggest that the highly expressed PLEKHO1 in osteoblasts contributes to joint inflammation in RA. Targeting osteoblastic PLEKHO1may exert dual therapeutic action of alleviating joint inflammation and promoting bone formation in RA. (c) 2019 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B. V.
