Abstract Challenge of mouse small intestinal loops with Salmonella typhimurium invoked the accumulation of luminal fluid, acute inflammation, and extensive structural damage to the small intestinal mucosa, as determined by histology and electron microscopy. Intraperitoneal and intestinal luminal injection of L-histidine, a known antioxidant, reduced the amount of fluid accumulating in the intestinal lumen and protected the intestinal tissue from S. typhimurium-induced damage. The reduction in S. typhimurium-induced fluid accumulation by L-histidine was specific for the L-enantiomer because D-histidine had no significant protective effect. Efficacy of L-histidine in protecting the infected intestinal tissue was attributed to the capacity of the imidazole ring to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by cells in the intestine during the acute inflammatory response. Glutathione levels were markedly reduced in S. typhimurium-challenged, inflamed intestinal tissues as a result of ROS generation. Importantly, after dosing the S. typhimurium-challenged mice with L-histidine, the glutathione content of the small intestinal tissue was not significantly different from mock-challenged controls. Further evidence favoring this mechanism included the capacity of L-histidine to scavenge ROS produced as a result of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) exposure of mononuclear cells (U937), as demonstrated with a redox-sensitive fluorescent dye (2'7'-dichlorodihydrofluorescein [DCF]). Addition of L-histidine, and to a lesser extent D-histidine, to the culture media of U937 cells before LPS exposure, resulted in a significant dose-dependent reduction in LPS-induced intracellular DCF fluorescence, as measured quantitatively by flow cytometry. The potential therapeutic value of anti-inflammatory drugs containing an L-histidine-like structure could protect infected mucosal tissues irrespective of microbial etiology.
