Abstract
During sepsis there is aberrant activation, migration and sequestration of neutrophils in visceral organsthat leads to widespread release of pro-inflammatory mediators contributing to multi-organ failure and death. Interaction of cell surface integrins with their counterpart ligands, results in the adherence of circulating neutrophils and directed migration to infection sites.In our study, we show that administration of a cyclic analog of RGD peptide (Arg-Gly-Asp) significantly reduced the number of tissue-invading neutrophils and the degree of sepsis-induced lethality in mice as compared to control peptide. Secondly, β 1 integrin (CD29) and more specifically VLA-3(CD49c/CD29) is dramatically up regulated on a subpopulation of neutrophils isolated from both human septic patients and mouse sepsis models. Compared with the Gr 1high CD11b high VLA- 3low granulocyte population, Gr 1high CD11b high VLA-3 high cells from septic animals displayed hyper-inflammatory phenotypes.Administration of VLA-3 antagonist peptides and conditional genetic ablation of VLA(3)/integrin from granulocytes also improved survival and bacterial clearance in septic animals. Thus, our results indicate that expression of VLA(3)/integrin is important for modulating neutrophil trafficking during sepsis, and therapeutics specifically targeted against VLA(3)/integrin may be beneficial.
