IL-2Rβ- and CD103-dependent genes in regulatory T cells in the gut mucosa

ABSTRACT: This study determined the genes that are differentially expressed when regulatory T cells (Tregs) were isolated from the lamina propria of the small and large intestine from mice with impaired IL-2Rβ signaling (designated Y3) or impaired IL-2Rβ signaling and lack of CD103 expression (designated Y3/CD103-/-) when compared to Tregs from WT mice. 204 unique annotated mRNAs were differentially expressed by ≥1.5 fold between these 3 groups (Fig. 6B). Very few mRNAs were uniquely up or down regulated in relationship to impaired IL-2Rβ signaling or the combination of impaired IL-2Rβ signaling and lack of CD103 expression. Thus, lack of CD103 does not obviously regulated signaling in Tregs in the gut mucosa and most differentially expressed genes were due to impaired IL_2Rβ signaling. Gene enrichment analysis of these differentially expressed genes identified 4 major enrichment groups (EG) are: EG1, Cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction and the JAK-STAT signaling pathway; EG2, regulation of lymphocyte activation and proliferation; EG3, regulation of cell death and the caspase pathway in apoptosis; and EG4, transcription. Mouse regulatory T cells (Tregs) cells were FACS purified based on expression of red fluorescent protein linked to the Foxp3 gene. These cells were obtained from the lamina propria of the small and large intestine from WT, Y3, and Y3/CD103-/- mice. Total RNA was prepared and processed to probe Affymetrix mouse Gene ST2.0 arrays.

A network of mechanisms operates to maintain tolerance in the gut mucosa. Although CD103 marks many lymphoid cells within the gut, its direct functional role in intestinal tolerance is poorly understood. CD103 may be part of a redundant pathway, as CD103(-/-) mice do not exhibit autoimmunity. To reduce such redundancy, CD103(-/-) mice were crossed to mice (designated Y3) whose T cells expressed a mutant IL-2Rβ-chain that lowers IL-2R signaling. Unlike overtly healthy Y3 mice, all Y3/CD103(-/-) m  ...[more]
