Type I Vs. Type II Cytokine Levels as a Function of SOD1 G93A Mouse Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Disease Progression.

Jeyachandran A, Mertens B, McKissick EA, Mitchell CS - Front Cell Neurosci (2015)

Bottom Line: A significant increase in TG cytokine levels was found when compared to WT cytokine levels across the entire SOD1 G93A lifespan for majority of the cytokines.The rates of change of the individual cytokines, and type I and type II were not significantly different; however, the mean fold change of type I was expressed at significantly higher levels than type II levels across all stages with the difference between the means becoming more pronounced at the end stage.Very early immunoregulatory treatment is necessary to successfully interrupt ALS-induced neuroinflammation.

ABSTRACT
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal motoneuron disease that is characterized by the degradation of neurons throughout the central nervous system. Inflammation have been cited a key contributor to ALS neurodegeneration, but the timeline of cytokine upregulation remains unresolved. The goal of this study was to temporally examine the correlation between the varying levels of pro-inflammatory type I cytokines (IL-1β, IL-1α, IL-12, TNF-α, and GFAP) and anti-inflammatory type II cytokines (IL-4, IL-6, IL-10) throughout the progression of ALS in the SOD1 G93A mouse model. Cytokine level data from high copy SOD1 G93A transgenic mice was collected from 66 peer-reviewed studies. For each corresponding experimental time point, the ratio of transgenic to wild type (TG/WT) cytokine was calculated. One-way ANOVA and t-tests with Bonferonni correction were used to analyze the data. Meta-analysis was performed for four discrete stages: early, pre-onset, post-onset, and end stage. A significant increase in TG cytokine levels was found when compared to WT cytokine levels across the entire SOD1 G93A lifespan for majority of the cytokines. The rates of change of the individual cytokines, and type I and type II were not significantly different; however, the mean fold change of type I was expressed at significantly higher levels than type II levels across all stages with the difference between the means becoming more pronounced at the end stage. An overexpression of cytokines occurred both before and after the onset of ALS symptoms. The trend between pro-inflammatory type I and type II cytokine mean levels indicate a progressive instability of the dynamic balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines as anti-inflammatory cytokines fail to mediate the pronounced increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines. Very early immunoregulatory treatment is necessary to successfully interrupt ALS-induced neuroinflammation.

Means of normalized cytokine levels (TG/WT) for each of the four SOD1 G93A ALS mouse disease stages: early, pre-onset, post-onset, and end. Statistically significant differences between SOD1 G93A transgenic mice (TG) and wild type (WT) levels within a disease stage are marked with asterisk (*). Statistically significant positive or negative fold changes across consecutive disease stages are represented by plus (+) or minus (−), respectfully. Significance was adjusted to p < 0.002 using Bonferroni correction. Error bars represent confidence interval.

Figure 3: Means of normalized cytokine levels (TG/WT) for each of the four SOD1 G93A ALS mouse disease stages: early, pre-onset, post-onset, and end. Statistically significant differences between SOD1 G93A transgenic mice (TG) and wild type (WT) levels within a disease stage are marked with asterisk (*). Statistically significant positive or negative fold changes across consecutive disease stages are represented by plus (+) or minus (−), respectfully. Significance was adjusted to p < 0.002 using Bonferroni correction. Error bars represent confidence interval.

Mentions: In Figure 3, the means of the fold change for all cytokines within each time period is positive with the exception of the means of IL-6 and TNF-α. At the early stage, the fold changes of IL-6 (0.7214) and TNF-α (0.9369) appear to be qualitatively less than WT, but are not statistically significant. The fold changes of all the other cytokines are greater than one, indicating that the TG cytokine levels were overexpressed relative to WT cytokine levels.
