Bottom Line: Adipose tissue myeloid populations, degree of inflammation, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity were assessed.Gene expression and histological analysis of the CD11b(lo)F4/80(lo) cells indicated that they are a unique undifferentiated monocytic inflammatory population.The discovery of this novel adipose tissue monocytic cell population provides advances toward understanding the pleiotropic role of CCR2 in monocyte/macrophage accumulation and regulation of adipose tissue inflammation.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Mice with CCR2 deficiency are protected from insulin resistance but only after long periods of high-fat diet (HFD) feeding, despite the virtual absence of circulating inflammatory monocytes. We performed a time course study in mice with hematopoietic and global CCR2 deficiency to determine adipose tissue-specific mechanisms for the delayed impact of CCR2 deficiency on insulin resistance.

Research design and methods: Mice with global or hematopoietic CCR2 deficiency (CCR2(-/-) and BM-CCR2(-/-), respectively) and wild-type controls (CCR2(+/+) and BM-CCR2(+/+), respectively) were placed on an HFD for 6, 12, and 20 weeks. Adipose tissue myeloid populations, degree of inflammation, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity were assessed.

Results: Flow cytometry analysis showed that two different populations of F4/80(+) myeloid cells (CD11b(lo)F4/80(lo) and CD11b(hi)F4/80(hi)) accumulated in the adipose tissue of CCR2(-/-) and BM-CCR2(-/-) mice after 6 and 12 weeks of HFD feeding, whereas only the CD11b(hi)F4/80(hi) population was detected in the CCR2(+/+) and BM-CCR2(+/+) controls. After 20 weeks of HFD feeding, the CD11b(lo)F4/80(lo) cells were no longer present in the adipose tissue of CCR2(-/-) mice, and only then were improvements in adipose tissue inflammation detected. Gene expression and histological analysis of the CD11b(lo)F4/80(lo) cells indicated that they are a unique undifferentiated monocytic inflammatory population. The CD11b(lo)F4/80(lo) cells are transiently found in wild-type mice, but CCR2 deficiency leads to the aberrant accumulation of these cells in adipose tissue.

Conclusions: The discovery of this novel adipose tissue monocytic cell population provides advances toward understanding the pleiotropic role of CCR2 in monocyte/macrophage accumulation and regulation of adipose tissue inflammation.

CD11bloF4/80lo cells are transiently found in the adipose tissue of HFD-fed CCR2+/+ mice. CD11bloF4/80lo and CD11bhiF4/80hi cells were isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting from CCR2+/+ mice fed an HFD for 7 weeks. A: Gating strategy used for cell sorting; CD11bhiF4/80hi (P1) and CD11bloF4/80lo (P2). RNA was isolated from the sorted cells and used for expression analysis of key CD11bloF4/80lo genes by real-time RT-PCR. B: Gene expression profiles in CD11bloF4/80lo (P2) cells relative to CD11bhiF4/80hi (P1) cells in CCR2+/+ mice were assessed (mean ± SEM; n = 4 biological replicates). C: Representative images of H-E–stained CD11bhiF4/80hi (P1) and CD11bloF4/80lo (P2) cells. *P < 0.05 compared with CD11bhiF4/80hi.

Mentions: To determine the physiological relevance of the CD11bloF4/80lo cells in wild-type conditions, we isolated CD11bloF4/80lo and CD11bhiF4/80hi macrophages from CCR2+/+ mice fed an HFD for 7 weeks. Despite the absence of two discrete populations in the CCR2+/+ mice, we were able to isolate CD11bloF4/80lo cells and found that they have gene expression (Fig. 6B) and morphology (Fig. 6C) similar with the CD11bloF4/80lo cells isolated from the adipose tissue of CCR2−/− mice. In addition, we assessed whether HFD feeding was necessary for the accumulation of CD11bloF4/80lo cells. The expression of several key genes in the CD11bloF4/80lo cells isolated from chow-fed CCR2−/− and CCR2+/+ mice (Supplementary Fig. 10) was similar to that of CD11bloF4/80lo cells isolated from the HFD mice (Figs. 5B and 6B).
