Bottom Line: MMPs and TIMP2 mRNA were measured in peripheral blood lysate using real-time RT-PCR.DNA for genetic polymorphism was extracted from peripheral blood by GTC method.No differences were found between TT and AT/AA patients in terms of radiological stage, lung function test parameters, activity markers and the presence/absence of Löfgren syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Background: Increased activity of metalloproteinases may play a role in the initiation and propagation of inflammation in sarcoidosis, and may also be one of the factors responsible for the development of lung fibrosis. The aim of this study was to verify whether polymorphisms of MMP2 C-735T, MMP7 A-181G, MMP9 T-1702A and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)2 G-418C predispose to sarcoidosis.

Material/methods: The study included 139 patients with sarcoidosis and 100 healthy subjects. MMPs and TIMP2 mRNA were measured in peripheral blood lysate using real-time RT-PCR. DNA for genetic polymorphism was extracted from peripheral blood by GTC method. Protein concentrations in peripheral blood lysates were measured by ELISA, and MMP2 and 9 activities in BAL fluid were estimated by gel zymography.

Results: TT genotype in MMP9 T-1702A was more frequent in sarcoidosis (p<0.0001, OR = 13.71, 95% CI 7.02-26.80) and resulted in higher expression of MMP9 mRNA (p<0.0001). No differences were found between TT and AT/AA patients in terms of radiological stage, lung function test parameters, activity markers and the presence/absence of Löfgren syndrome. There were no differences in the distribution of MMP2, MMP7 and TIMP2 polymorphisms. Messenger RNAs, as well as protein concentrations of MMP2, 7, 9, and TIMP2 were elevated in patients with sarcoidosis (p<0.0001 for each).

Conclusions: The TT homozygotes of MMP9 T-1702A genotype may be predisposed to sarcoidosis. Elevated MMP2, 7, 9, and TIMP2 mRNAs suggest their inducibility.

f2-medscimonit-17-10-cr598: Expression of mRNA in peripheral blood lysates in control and sarcoidosis groups for: (A) MMP2; (B) MMP7; (C) MMP9; (D) TIMP2. Data shown as median (horizontal line) and interquartile range (boxes). Whiskers show minimum and maximum values.

Mentions: Messenger RNA expressions for MMP2, MMP7, MMP9 and TIMP2 were significantly higher in sarcoidosis (Figure 2A–D). Concentrations of proteins in whole peripheral blood lysates were also significantly higher (Figure 3A–D). In the study group, a correlation was found between MMP2 mRNA and MMP2 concentration (r=0.39; p<0.0001), and between MMP9 mRNA and MMP9 concentration in peripheral blood lysates (r=0.38; p<0.0001). There were no correlations between activity of MMP2 and MMP9 in BAL and mRNA concentrations or protein concentrations in peripheral blood lysates.
