EGFR inhibitors erlotinib and lapatinib ameliorate epidermal blistering in pemphigus vulgaris in a non-linear, V-shaped relationship. PV generally occurs between the 4th and 6th decades of life, but can be seen in … (2008) 173:1628–36. Autoantibody signaling in pemphigus vulgaris: development of an integrated model. EGFR activation reduced Dsg3 binding frequency on keratinocytes significantly from 7.67 to 3.20% in a Src-dependent manner because inhibition by PP2 restored Dsg3 binding frequency to 8.48% (Figure 4A). These results indicate that Dsg3 and Dsg2 are not required for activation of ERK and influx of Ca2+, at least in response to PF-IgG. Many patients with pemphigus foliaceus, a superficial form of pemphigus have antibodies to DSG1. An adult passive transfer mouse model to study desmoglein 3 signaling in pemphigus vulgaris. Nevertheless, since siRNA-mediated depletion of Dsg1 and Dsg3 was not sufficient to significantly reduce PV-IgG-mediated EGFR and Src activation, it is possible that autoantibodies against other targets are involved in this process as well (39). doi: 10.1083/jcb.200605125, 47. (1996) 271:30505–9. (2011) 179:1905–16. (2018) 9:1190. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.01190, 7. DSG1 (Desmoglein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. (2013) 123:800–11. IgG antibodies to Dsg1 and 3 … Several signaling pathways were proposed to cause loss of keratinocyte adhesion. In line with this, AFM revealed that EGF similar to PV-IgG reduced Dsg3 binding frequency. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2133.2012.11173.x, 57. (2016) 113:1859–64. Defined mechanical shear stress was applied with an electrical pipette (Finnpipette Novus, ThermoFisher, Waltham, USA). First, Fura measurements were performed to evaluate the efficiency of BAPTA-AM. Received: 21 February 2019; Accepted: 03 May 2019; Published: 24 May 2019. desmoglein 3 (Dsg3) and sometimes also recognize Dsg1 [1–3]. However, EGF- but not PV-IgG-induced loss of Dsg3 binding was Src-dependent. Therefore, we employed Fura-2 ratiometric measurements after application of autoantibodies in presence or absence of Erlotinib. Cantilevers were functionalized with recombinant Dsg3-Fc (at a concentration of 0.15mg/ml) using a flexible heterobifunctional acetal-polyethylenglycol (PEG) linker (Gruber Lab, Institute of Biophysics, Linz, Austria) following a well-established protocol (20). Getsios S, Simpson CL, Kojima SI, Harmon R, Sheu LJ, Dusek RL, et al.

J Invest Dermatol. EGFR may reduce cell adhesion together with ADAMs via shedding of Dsg isoforms and inhibition of desmosome assembly as has been shown for Dsg2 (42, 43). 15. Background: Pemphigus is an autoimmune blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes caused by autoantibodies against desmoglein 1 (Dsg1) and desmoglein 3 (Dsg3). doi: 10.1073/pnas.0602973103, 33. doi: 10.1080/08916930600971836, 39. They are characterized by formation of autoantibodies against structural proteins of the skin. Signaling pathway modulation by pemphigus IgG fractions in Dsg-deficient cell lines. Afterwards, cells were detached from the well bottom by application of 200 μl Dispase-II solution (Sigma-Aldrich) for 20 min. Here, we further characterized the role of the different signaling mechanisms and of antibodies against Dsg1 and Dsg3. Sci Rep. (2017) 7:3579. doi: 10.1038/s41598-017-03697-7, 16. Exp Dermatol. Autoimmunity. Smaller desmosomes are seen in the skin of pemphigus patients with anti-desmoglein 1 antibodies but not in patients with anti-desmoglein 3 antibodies. Useful For. Synergy among non-desmoglein antibodies contributes to the immunopathology of desmoglein antibody–negative pemphigus vulgaris. Cell-sheet fragments correlate with loss of adhesion (19) and were counted under a binocular microscope (Stemi 508, Zeiss, Jena, Germany). Waschke J, Spindler V. Desmosomes and extradesmosomal adhesive signaling contacts in pemphigus. Specimen Volume: 1 mL. Green, Northwestern University, Chicago, USA). In short, cell lysates were separated into a soluble cytosolic and insoluble cytoskeletal bound fraction by incubation of triton extraction buffer (0.5% Triton X-100, 50 mmol/l MES, 25 mmol/l EGTA, 5 mmol/l MgCl2, pH 6.8, 0.1% of each Pepstatin, Aprotinin and Leupeptin, 1% PMSF) for 15 min on ice under gentle shaking. HaCaT keratinocytes were subjected to dispase assays following incubation with different IgG fractions in presence or absence of pharmacological inhibitors to evaluate the relevance of Ca2+ influx as well as the EGFR signaling pathway for loss of keratinocyte adhesion. (2004) 151:565–70. These observations indicate that autoantibodies against Dsg3 may contribute to loss of keratinocyte adhesion. (A) Atomic force microscopy (AFM) adhesion measurements on cell borders of living HaCaT keratinocytes using a Dsg3 Fc-functionalized tip and 1 h incubation of EGF with representative force maps. Therefore, we investigated the relevance of Ca2+ influx and EGFR signaling for loss of keratinocyte adhesion in response to IgG fractions containing different profiles of aDsg1 and aDsg3 antibodies from patients suffering from m-PV, mc-PV and PF in dispase-based dissociation assays. All IgG fractions including c-IgG were subjected to ELISA assays (Euroimmun, Lübeck, Germany) to determine Dsg3 and Dsg1 antibody profiles. J Invest Dermatol.

Membranes were blocked by 5% bovine serum albumin (BSA) in Tris-buffered saline with 0.05% Tween (TBS-T) for 1 h at room temperature and following primary antibodies were used overnight at 4°C in blocking solution: phospho-EGF Receptor mAb (Tyr845) (Cell Signaling Technologies, Danvers, USA), EGF Receptor mAb (CST), phospho-p44/42 MAPK mAb (CST), p44/42 MAPK mAb (CST), GAPDH (Santa Cruz, Heidelberg, Germany), Desmoplakin I/II (H-300) (Santa Cruz), α-Tubulin (Abcam, Cambridge, UK), Dsg3 pAb (Biozol, Eching, Germany), PG (Progen, Heidelberg, Germany), E-Cad (BD Transduction), Dsg2 (OriGene, Herford, Germany), Desmocollin (Dsc) 3 (Progen). Taken together, these data suggest that PF-IgG and mc-PV-IgG activated ERK by different mechanisms. (2018) 9:528. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00528, 22. (C) Cell line characterization by immunoblot with representative images on the left and densitometric quantification on the right (n = 3, one-way ANOVA, *p ≤ 0.05 vs. WT). Nevertheless, we conclude that autoantibodies in m-PV, which include antibodies targeting Dsg3, may interfere with desmosome turn-over via direct inhibition of Dsg3 binding and several signaling pathways such as Src, EGFR and p38MAPK and thereby sensitize desmosomes for autoantibodies against Dsg1 and other antigens which together induce an mc-PV phenotype. Desmoglein 3-dependent signaling regulates keratinocyte migration and wound healing. Images and figures were processed using Photoshop CC (Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe, San Jóse, USA). Circulating IgG antibodies to desmoglein-1 and -3 (Dsg1, Dsg3) adhesion molecules of squamous epithelial cells are the underlying defects, causing loss of cell-to-cell adhesion. J Cell Biol. Exp Dermatol. Homophilic Dsg3 interactions were determined before as well as after EGF incubation for 1 h yielding similar results indicating that cellular mechanisms are required for reduction of Dsg3 binding (Figure 4C). Afterwards, genomic DNA was extracted using a standard Phenol-Chloroform DNA extraction protocol and send for Sanger sequencing with an area of 500 base pairs flanking both ends of the target site (Eurofins, Ebersberg, Germany). The following protocol was performed as described previously (15). J Invest Dermatol. Soluble fas ligand is essential for blister formation in pemphigus. doi: 10.1016/j.jid.2017.06.022, 8. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA. 52. While Dsg1 is predominantly located in the upper epidermis, Dsg3 is primarily located in the lower epidermis. ERK was activated independent of Src and MEK indicating that PF-IgG regulates ERK signaling by other mechanisms (Figure 7).
