We previously reported (18)FPRGD(2) uptake by the coxofemoral lining, intervertebral discs and facet joint osteophytes in OA using PET/SCAN imaging. However, the molecular mechanism by which the PRGD(2) tracer interacts with joint tissues and osteophytes in OA remains unclear. As PRGD(2) ligands are expected to belong to the RGD-specific integrin family, the purpose of this study was (i) to determine which integrin complexes display the highest affinity for PRGD2-based ligands, (ii) to analyze integrin expression in relevant tissues, and (iii) to test integrin regulation in chondrocytes using OA-related stimuli to increase the levels of fibrosis and ossification markers. To this end, the affinity of PRGD(2)-based ligands for five heterodimeric integrins was measured by competition with (125)I-echistatin. In situ analyses were performed in human normal vs. OA cartilage and spinal osteophytes. Osteophytes were characterized by (immuno-)histological staining. Integrin subunit expression was tested in chondrocytes undergoing dedifferentiation, osteogenic differentiation, and inflammatory stimulation. The integrins α(V)β(5), α(V)β(3), and α(V)β(6) presented the highest affinity for PRGD(2)-based ligands. In situ, the expression of these integrins was significantly increased in OA compared to normal cartilage. Within osteophytes, the mean integrin expression score was significantly higher in blood vessels, fibrous areas, and cells from the bone lining than in osteocytes and cartilaginous zones. In vitro, the levels of integrin subunits were significantly increased during chondrocyte dedifferentiation (except for β(6)), fibrosis, and osteogenic differentiation as well as under inflammatory stimuli. In conclusion, anatomical zones (such as OA cartilage, intervertebral discs, and facet joint osteophytes) previously reported to show PRGD(2) ligand uptake in vivo expressed increased levels of α(V)β(5), α(V)β(3), and β(6) integrins, whose subunits are modulated in vitro by OA-associated conditions that increase fibrosis, inflammation, and osteogenic differentiation. These results suggest that the increased levels of integrins in OA compared to normal tissues favor PRGD2 uptake and might explain the molecular mechanism of OA imaging using the PRGD(2)-based ligand PET/CT.

Background: Serum protein glycosylation is an area of investigation in inflammatory arthritic disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Indeed, some studies highlighted abnormalities of protein glycosylation in RA. Considering the numerous types of enzymes, monosaccharides and glycosidic linkages, glycosylation is one of the most complex post translational modifications. By this work, we started with a preliminary screening of glycoproteins in serum from RA patients and controls. Methods: In order to isolate glycoproteins from serum, lectin wheat germ agglutinin was used and quantitative differences between patients and controls were investigated by LC-MS/MS. Consequently, we focused our attention on two glycoproteins found in this explorative phase: corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) and lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP). The subsequent validation with immunoassays was widened to a larger number of early RA (ERA) patients (n = 90) and well-matched healthy controls (n = 90). Results: We observed a significant reduction of CBG and LBP glycosylation in ERA patients compared with healthy controls. Further, after 12 months of treatment, glycosylated CBG and LBP levels increased both to values comparable to those of controls. In addition, these changes were correlated with clinical parameters. Conclusions: This study enables to observe that glycosylation changes of CBG and LBP are related to RA disease activity and its response to treatment. © 2020 The Author(s). [less ▲]

Serum amyloid A (SAA) and S100 (S100A8, S100A9 and S100A12) proteins were previously identified as biomarkers of interest for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Among SAA family, two closely related isoforms (SAA-1 and SAA-2) are linked to the acute-phase of inflammation. They respectively exist under the form of three (α, β, and γ) and two (α and β) allelic variants. We developed a single run quantitative method for these protein variants and investigated their clinical relevance in the context of RA. The method was developed and validated according to regulations before being applied on plasma coming from RA patients (n = 46), other related inflammatory pathologies (n = 116) and controls (n = 62). Depending on the activity score of RA, SAA1 isoforms (mainly of SAA1α and SAA1β subtypes) were found to be differentially present in plasma revealing their dual role during the development of RA. In addition, the weight of SAA1α in the total SAA response varied from 32 to 80% depending on the pathology studied. A negative correlation between SAA1α and SAA1β was also highlighted for RA early-onset (r = −0.41). SAA2 and S100A8/S100A9 proteins were significantly overexpressed compared to control samples regardless of RA stage. The pathophysiological relevance of these quantitative and qualitative characteristics of the SAA response remains unknown. However, the significant negative correlation observed between SAA1α and SAA1β levels in RA early-onset suggests the existence of still unknown regulatory mechanisms in these diseases. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Synovial fibrosis is a pathological process that is observed in several musculoskeletal disorders and characterized by the excessive deposition of extracellular matrix, as well as cell migration and proliferation. Despite the fact that glucocorticoids are widely employed in the treatment of rheumatic pathologies such as osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis, the mechanisms by which glucocorticoids act in the joint and their impacts on pro-fibrotic pathways are still unclear. MATERIALS: Human OA synovial fibroblasts were obtained from knee and hip joints. Cells were treated with prednisolone (1 mM) or transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) (10 ng/ml) for 1 and 7 days for quantification of RNA and protein expression (by real-time quantitative reverse transcription-PCR and western blot, respectively), 72 h for immunocytochemistry analysis, and 48 h for proliferation (by BrdU assay) and migration (by wound assay) studies. In addition, cells were preincubated with prednisolone and/or the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) agonist 15-deoxy-Δ-12,14-prostaglandin J2 (15d-PGJ2) for 6 h before adding TGF-β1. pSmad1/5, pSmad2 and β-catenin levels were analyzed by Western blot. The activin receptor-like kinase-5 (ALK-5) inhibitor (SB-431542) was employed for the mechanistic assays. RESULTS: Prednisolone showed a predominant anti-fibrotic impact on fibroblast-like synoviocytes as it attenuated the spontaneous and TGF-β-induced gene expression of pro-fibrotic markers. Prednisolone also reduced α-sma protein and type III collagen levels, as well as cell proliferation and migration after TGF-β stimulation. However, prednisolone did not downregulate the gene expression of all the pro-fibrotic markers tested and did not restore the reduced PPAR-γ levels after TGF-β stimulation. Interestingly, anti-fibrotic actions of the glucocorticoid were reinforced in the presence of the PPAR-γ agonist 15d-PGJ2. Combined pretreatment modulated Smad2/3 levels and, similar to the ALK-5 inhibitor, blocked β-catenin accumulation elicited by TGF-β. CONCLUSIONS: Prednisolone, along with 15d-PGJ2, modulates pro-fibrotic pathways activated by TGF-β in synovial fibroblasts at least partially through the inhibition of ALK5/Smad2 signaling and subsequent β-catenin accumulation. These findings shed light on the potential therapeutic effects of glucocorticoids treatment combined with a PPAR-γ agonist against synovial fibrosis, although future studies are warranted to further evaluate this concern.

CEMIP (for “Cell migration-inducing protein” also called KIAA1199 and Hybid for “Hyaluronan-binding protein”) expression is increased in cancers and described as a regulator of cell survival, growth and invasion. In rheumatoid arthritis, CEMIP is referred to as an angiogenic marker and participates in hyaluronic acid degradation. In this study, CEMIP expression is investigated in healthy and osteoarthritis (OA) cartilage from human and mouse. Its role in OA physiopathology is deciphered, specifically in chondrocytes proliferation and dedifferentiation and in the extracellular matrix remodeling. To this end, CEMIP, αSMA and types I and III collagen expressions were assessed in human OA and non-OA cartilage. CEMIP expression was also investigated in a mouse OA model. CEMIP expression was studied in vitro using a chondrocyte dedifferentiation model. High-throughput RNA sequencing was performed on chondrocytes after CEMIP silencing. Results showed that CEMIP was overexpressed in human and murine OA cartilage and along chondrocytes dedifferentiation. Most of genes deregulated in CEMIP-depleted cells were involved in cartilage turnover (e.g., collagens), mesenchymal transition and fibrosis. CEMIP regulated β-catenin protein level. Moreover, CEMIP was essential for chondrocytes proliferation and promoted αSMA expression, a fibrosis marker, and TGFβ signaling towards the p-Smad2/3 (Alk5/PAI-1) pathway. Interestingly, CEMIP was induced by the pSmad1/5 (Alk1) pathway. αSMA and type III collagen expressions were overexpressed in human OA cartilage and along chondrocytes dedifferentiation. Finally, CEMIP was co-expressed in situ with αSMA in all OA cartilage layers. In conclusion, CEMIP was sharply overexpressed in human and mouse OA cartilage and along chondrocytes dedifferentiation. CEMIP-regulated transdifferentiation of chondrocytes into “chondro-myo-fibroblasts” expressing α-SMA and type III collagen, two fibrosis markers. Moreover, these “chondro-myo-fibroblasts” were found in OA cartilage but not in healthy cartilage. [less ▲]

SSc is a rare disease of unknown origin associated with multiple organ involvement. One of the major complications that drives the mortality of SSc patients is interstitial lung disease. The course of SSc-interstitial lung disease progression has a wide spectrum. Since the treatment is based on aggressive immunosuppression it should not be given to stable or non-progressing disease. The correct identification of disease with high risk of progression remains a challenge for early therapeutic intervention, and biomarkers remain urgently needed. In fact, eight categories of biomarkers have been identified and classified according to the different biological pathways involved. The purpose of this article is to describe the main biomarkers thought to be of interest with clinical value in the diagnosis and prognosis of SSc-interstitial lung disease. [less ▲]

Phosphorylation of p62/SQSTM1 (p62) on Serine 349 (P-Ser349 p62) as well as proteasome dysfunction have been shown to activate the cell protective Keap1/Nrf2 pathway. We showed previously that BAY 11-7085-induced human synovial fibroblast cell death includes autophagy and p62 downregulation. In this work, we have studied expression of P-Ser349 p62 in human synovial fibroblasts. Results showed that P-Ser349 p62 was not detected in synovial cell extracts unless cells were cultured in the presence of proteasome inhibitor (MG132). MG132 revealed P-Ser349 p62 turnover, that was further increased by concomitant autophagy inhibition and markedly enhanced in serum starved cells. Starvation sensitized synovial fibroblasts to BAY 11-7085 while MG132 protected both non-starved and starved cells from BAY 11-7085-induced cell death. Lentivirus mediated overexpression of phosphorylation-mimetic p62 mutant S349E markedly protected synovial fibroblasts from BAY 11-7085. Inhibitor of Keap1-P-S349 p62 interaction, K67, had synergistic effect with MG132. Starvation increased p62 molecular weight, that was reversed by serum and bovine serum albumin re-feeding. Furthermore, starvation markedly induced RAD23B. Increased endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase (ENGase) turnover was detected in starved synovial fibroblasts. PNGase F treatment produced faster migration p62 form in human synovial tissue extracts but starvation-like p62 form of higher molecular weight in synovial cell extracts. Co-transfection of NGLY1, with p62 or p62 mutants S349A and S349E markedly stabilized p62 expressions in HEK293 cells. Tunicamycin upregulated p62 and protected synovial fibroblasts from BAY 11-7085-induced cell death. These results showed that P-Ser349 p62 has pro-survival role in human synovial fibroblasts and that de-glycosylation events are involved in p62 turnover. [less ▲]

Background: (18)F-FDG PET/CT has been proposed in the evaluation of the disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The goals of this study were to evaluate the reproducibility of the technique, to compare metabolic parameters to clinical, biological and ultrasonographic parameters before and after treatment and to evaluate whether the early metabolic response was related to the outcome. (18)F- FDG PET/CT of the hands, wrists and knees was obtained in 15 patients with anti-TNFalpha refractory RA, at baseline and 16 weeks after treatment with rituximab. The number of PET-positive joints (PET+ joints), the cumulative standard uptake value (cSUV) and the composite index (CI) were defined. The composite clinical index DAS28, CRP serum levels and the number of joints positive at ultrasonography (US+ joints) and the cumulative synovial thickness (CST) were also assessed at baseline and week 24. Results: High interobserver agreement was observed, both at baseline and after treatment. The number of PET+ joints was not correlated with the number of joints tender or swollen. The 3 metabolic parameters were strongly correlated with US, CRP and DAS28 at baseline and with US and CRP (CSUV, CI) at week 16, but no longer with the DAS28 index. The metabolic response based on the change in the visual PET/CT joint analysis predicted the outcome with a high negative predictive value of 91%, with a 91% specificity, and an 86% accuracy. Conclusions: These preliminary data suggest that (18)F- FDG PET/CT is a reproducible and accurate tool for evaluating disease activity in refractory rheumatoid arthritis and its non-response to rituximab. The correlation obtained with US joint assessment gives relevance to objective diseased joints through imaging techniques. [less ▲]
