Abstract
β-arrestins ( β -arrestin-1 and 2) are scaffolding proteins originally identified as critical regulators of G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) desensitization. More recent studies indicate that the functions of β -arrestins are much broader and include a wide variety of cell signaling functions including their role in biased signaling from GPCRs. Studies from our lab and others demonstrate a critical role for β -arrestins in non-GPCR signaling including receptors involved in inflammation, such as TLRs. In previous studies, we found that β -arrestin1 ( β -arr1) is a critical mediator of endotoxemia in mouse model. Consistent with that, we also found that the β -arr1 deficient mice are protected from intestinal inflammation. Accordingly, β -arr1 deficient mice also exhibited significantly low levels of IL-6 compared to wild type mice during colitis. By generating bone marrow chimeras, we further found that deficiency of β -arr1 in the hematopoietic compartment is sufficient to prevent colitis-induced weight loss. Surprisingly however, we found that β -arr1 deficient mice are strikingly more susceptible to polymicrobial sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture. This opposing phenotype also correlated with enhanced levels of IL-6 in the β -arr1 knockout mice. Intriguingly, we further found that the negative regulatory role of β -arr1 in the polymicrobial sepsis model is attributable to regulation of IL-6 by β -arr1 in the non-hematopoietic cells. Together our results suggest that β -arr1 in different cellular compartments have selective and unique roles depending on the instigating stimuli in terms of inflammatory disease.
