Abstract Fluoride is capable of inducing immunotoxicity, but its molecular mechanisms remain elusive. This study aimed to explore the roles of Protein kinase receptor-like ER kinase (PERK) and inositol requiring enzyme 1 (IRE1) signaling pathways in excessive fluoride-induced immunotoxicity, focusing on the regulatory roles of these two pathways in cell division and apoptosis. Firstly, we assessed the changes in cell division and apoptosis in rats exposed to 0, 50, or 100 mg/L fluoride, and detected the expression of PERK and IRE1 signaling-related proteins in spleen. Additionally, to validate the role of these two pathways, we evaluated the changes in cell division and apoptosis of primary lymphocytes from rat's spleen to 4 mM fluoride after knockdown of PERK and IRE1 in vitro. In vivo results confirmed that fluoride inhibited cell division, promoted the apoptosis and resulted in histological and ultrastructural abnormalities of rat spleen. In addition, fluoride induced activation of the PERK and IRE1 signalings and the associated apoptosis. Moreover, the in vitro results further verified the findings in vivo that fluoride activated these two signalings in B lymphocytes. Importantly, after knockdown of PERK and IRE1 in lymphocytes, the cell division ability was restored, and apoptosis decreased in fluoride-treated lymphocytes; the results correlated well with the expression of PERK and IRE1 signaling-related proteins, thus confirming the pivotal role of these pathways in immunosuppression by excessive fluoride. This study indicates that the mechanisms underlying the deleterious effects of fluoride on immune system are related to activation of the PERK and IRE1 signaling pathways.

Abstract In reviewing the literature, the cellular mechanism of fluoride F-induced osteoblast OB cells apoptosis is diverse and perplexing, but detailed regulatory pathway, targets and role of extracellular Ca2+ remains still unclear. Hence, in the present study, we investigated the effects of F (9 mg/L F ion) and different Ca2+ (0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8 mmol/L) levels treatment on the proliferation rate of osteoblast cells, intracellular free Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress apoptosi...

Abstract To assess the immunomodulatory and antioxidant activities of a Se-polysaccharide from Se-enriched G. frondosa (Se-GFP-22), immunosuppressed mice models were generated by cyclophosphamide (CTX) administration and then treated with Se-GFP-22. Results showed that Se-GFP-22 could increase thymus and spleen indices, phagocytic index, co-mitogenic (ConA- or LPS-stimulated) activities on splenocytes, DTH reaction, serum hemolysin formation and immunoglobulin (Ig G, Ig A and Ig M) levels in CTX...

Abstract Physiological aging is associated with a range of medical problems. However, the treatment of aging-associated diseases and prolonging human life are vital to our current aging societies. Panax ginseng, a traditional Chinese medicine, has been shown to have anti-oxidative and anti-aging effects. In the current study, aging rats induced by d -galactose were administered ginsenoside Rg1, then splenocytes and thymocytes were extracted and changes in activity were detected. The results demo...

Abstract Fluoride is capable of inducing neurotoxicity, but its mechanisms remain elusive. This study aimed to explore the roles of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and autophagy in sodium fluoride (NaF)-induced neurotoxicity, focusing on the regulating role of ER stress in autophagy. The in vivo results demonstrated that NaF exposure impaired the learning and memory capabilities of rats, and resulted in histological and ultrastructural abnormalities in rat hippocampus. Moreover, NaF exposure i...

Polysaccharides are closely associated with immune regulation, but there are different polysaccharide effects from different sources. In this study, the aim was to investigate the effect of tremella polysaccharides (TP) in cyclophosphamide-induced immunodeficient mice. We observed the thymus and spleen index, liver and spleen pathological changes, and the levels of IL-2, IL-12, INF-γ, TGF-β and Ig G in serum, and we also noted the mRNA expression of IL-1β, IL-4, IL-12 and TGF-β in liver and sple...

Lymphocyte depletion and immunosuppression are typical clinical characteristics of pigs infected with classical swine fever virus (CSFV). The apoptosis of virus-infected and bystander cells plays a role in the immunopathology of classical swine fever (CSF). Here, we offer the first evidence that autophagy is involved in apoptosis and death of T lymphocytes in the spleen of pigs infected with CSFV. Using immunohistochemical assays, we observed that more LC3II-positive cells appear in the T-cell z...

The secretory capacity of a cell is constantly challenged by physiological demands and pathological perturbations. To adjust and match the protein-folding capacity of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to changing secretory needs, cells employ a dynamic intracellular signaling pathway known as the unfolded protein response (UPR). Homeostatic activation of the UPR enforces adaptive programs that modulate and augment key aspects of the entire secretory pathway, whereas maladaptive UPR outputs trigger ...

Abstract This study examined the relation between fluoride (F − ) concentrations in fingernail clippings and urine and the prevalence and severity of enamel fluorosis (EF) among Ethiopian Rift Valley populations exposed to high levels of F − in drinking water. The utility of fingernail clippings as a biomarker for F − exposure and EF was also assessed for the first time in a high-F − region. The study recorded the EF status of 386 individuals (10 to 50 years old), who consume naturally contamina...

Background & Aims B cells infiltrate tumors, but little is known about how they affect tumor growth and progression. microRNA15A (MIR15A or miRNA15A) and microRNA16-1 (MIR16-1 or miRNA16-1) regulate cell proliferation, apoptosis, and drug resistance. We investigated their involvement in B-cell–mediated immune suppression by colorectal tumors. Methods Mice with disruptions of the gene cluster that encodes MIR15A and MIR16–1 (knockout mice), and control (C57BL/B6) mice were given azoxymethane with...

Abstract Fluoride has been considered as a risk factor of cardiovascular disease due to its endothelial toxicology. However, the mechanism underlying the endothelial toxicity of fluoride has not been clearly illustrated. MiR-200c-3p was strongly linked with endothelial function and its level is increased in serum of fluorosis patients, but it is unclear the role of miR-200c-3p in the fluoride induced endothelial dysfunction. In this study, we confirmed that fluoride exposure induced the apoptosi...

Abstract In recent years, numerous studies paid more attention to the molecular mechanisms associated with fluoride toxicity. However, the detailed mechanisms of fluoride immunotoxicity in bovine neutrophils remain unclear. Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) is a novel immune mechanism of neutrophils. We hypothesized that sodium fluoride (NaF) can trigger NETs activation and release, and investigate the related molecular mechanisms during the process. We exposed peripheral blood neutrophils t...

The intestinal mucosal barrier plays an important role in systemic immune functions. This study aimed to find the mechanism of peptide from Alaska Pollock (APP) on intestinal mucosal immunity in mice induced by cyclophosphamide (Cy). Cy-induced decreases of body weight and index of immune organ were significantly improved by APP as compared with Cy group (p < 0.05). APP could promote the secretion of SIgA and IgA on intestinal mucosa (p < 0.05) and mainly had an impact on the final differentiati...
