GSE98427 STAT3-initiated epigenetic activation during T helper 17 (Th17) cell differentiation is mediated by Tripartite motif containing 28

Contributors : Yu Jiang ; Huiping Lu ; Ying Liu ; Shao-cong Sun ; Wei Jin ; Xiaohu Wang ; Chen DongSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing ; Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusEpigenetic regulation is important for T cell fate decision. Although STAT3 is known to initiate Th17 differentiation program, the downstream mechanism is unclear. Here we show that tripartite motif containing 28 (TRIM28) expression in Th17 cells was required for cytokine production and autoimmune diseases. Genome-wide occupancy analysis revealed that TRIM28-bound regions contained almost all Th17-specific super-enhancers, which were impaired after STAT3 or TRIM28 but not ROR t deletion. Importantly, IL6-STAT3 signaling facilitated TRIM28 binding to the Il17-Il17f locus, which was required for epigenetic activation and high-order chromosomal interaction. TRIM28 also formed a complex with STAT3 and RORt, and promoted the recruitment of RORt to target cytokine ge ne. TRIM28 thus is a key player in the epigenetic activation during T cell differentiation

Purpose of review Neuroimmunological diseases encompass a wide spectrum of diseases in children. Apart from the discovery of autoantibodies affecting primarily grey matter structures and the improved clinical characterization of rare entities such as N-methyl D-aspartate receptor-R- encephalitis, important strides have also been made in autoimmune-mediated white matter diseases, including paediatric multiple sclerosis (pedMS) and other acute demyelinating syndromes (ADS) often associated with antibodies (abs) against myelin-oligodendrocyte-glycoprotein (MOG). This review will cover findings of recent studies in pedMS, in...

Purpose of review Although it is becoming increasingly clear that B cells play important roles in multiple sclerosis (MS) pathogenesis, it is incompletely understood how they contribute. The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the current knowledge about B cells in MS taking into account MS heterogeneity. Recent findings The efficacy of B cell-depleting therapies has provided strong evidence for the involvement of these cells in MS pathogenesis. Although pathogenic antibodies were found in some MS patients, the observation that plasma cells and antibodies remain largely unchanged after B-cell depletion...

Purpose of review Humoral autoimmunity has gained highest interest in neurology and psychiatry. Despite numerous recent articles on this hot topic, however, the biological significance of natural autoantibodies (AB) and the normal autoimmune repertoire of mammals remained quite obscure. AB may contribute to disorder-relevant phenotypes and are even believed to induce diseases themselves, but the circumstances under which AB become pathogenic are not fully understood. This review will focus on the highly frequent AB against the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor 1 (NMDAR1-AB) as an illustrating example and provide a critical o...

CONCLUSIONS: IKKε plays an important role in promoting nociception and inflammatory response in CIA. Our research demonstrated that knockout of IKKε may serve as a new direction for clinical prevention and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. IKKε inhibitor amlexanox may become a new drug for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. PMID: 29687872 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurpose of the reviewTo discuss the ethnic and racial disparities observed in patients with autoimmune liver diseases, with special focus on epidemiology, patterns of inheritance, clinical presentation, and outcomes.Recent findingsBlack, Hispanics, and Asians with autoimmune hepatitis appear to have more aggressive clinical features, poorer initial response to standard therapy, and higher rates of complications including hepatocellular carcinoma, with worse survival than their White counterparts. African American and Hispanic patients with primary biliary cholangitis have more advanced disease at presentation and H...

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune multisystem inflammatory disease that is associated with sizable morbidity and mortality.1 When lupus commences in an individual less than 18 years of age,2 it is commonly referred to as childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (cSLE). With a reported incidence of 0.3-0.9 per 100  000 children per year, and a prevalence of 3.3-24 per 100 000 children,3 cSLE is rare. About 10%-20% of all patients with SLE are diagnosed during childhood. Typically, cSLE has a more severe clinical course than that seen in adults, with a higher prevalence of lupus nephritis, hematologic anom ali...

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), first described in 1959, is an often-fatal disease caused by an opportunistic infection by JC virus (JCV), which most human beings carry throughout life without consequences.1,2 PML was a major cause of death in patients with AIDS, but its prevalence decreased sharply with the introduction of retroviral therapy. PML is now mostly seen in patients during chemotherapy or immunosuppression. The first PML cases in patients with multiple sclerosis who were treated with natalizumab came as a surprise in 20053,4 because PML had not been observed with other drugs for multiple scler...

The finding by Remmler et  al1 that increased levels of interleukin 6 (IL6) predict 90-day and 1-year mortality in patients with end-stage liver disease is of high importance. In addition to its relevance for prognosis and timing of liver transplantation, we believe that the determination of IL6 levels could represent a pos sible target for therapy. Indeed, IL6 increases occur in autoimmune diseases, but more importantly is a consequence of infections. Viral causes of chronic liver diseases, such as hepatitis C and B viruses, now can be cured in a very high percentage of patients with the administration of antivirals.
