Adenosine Triphosphate Release is Required for Toll-Like Receptor-Induced Monocyte/Macrophage Activation, Inflammasome Signaling, Interleukin-1β Production, and the Host Immune Response to Infection.


OBJECTIVES:Monocytes and macrophages produce interleukin-1β by inflammasome activation which involves adenosine triphosphate release, pannexin-1 channels, and P2X7 receptors. However, interleukin-1β can also be produced in an inflammasome-independent fashion. Here we studied if this mechanism also involves adenosine triphosphate signaling and how it contributes to inflammasome activation. DESIGN:In vitro studies with human cells and randomized animal experiments. SETTING:Preclinical academic research laboratory. SUBJECTS:Wild-type C57BL/6 and pannexin-1 knockout mice, healthy human subjects for cell isolation. INTERVENTIONS:Human monocytes and U937 macrophages were treated with different inhibitors to study how purinergic signaling contributes to toll-like receptor-induced cell activation and interleukin-1β production. Wild-type and pannexin-1 knockout mice were subjected to cecal ligation and puncture to study the role of purinergic signaling in interleukin-1β production and host immune defense. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS:Toll-like receptor agonists triggered mitochondrial adenosine triphosphate production and adenosine triphosphate release within seconds. Inhibition of mitochondria, adenosine triphosphate release, or P2 receptors blocked p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and caspase-1 activation and interleukin-1β secretion. Mice lacking pannexin-1 failed to activate monocytes, to produce interleukin-1β, and to effectively clear bacteria following cecal ligation and puncture. CONCLUSIONS:Purinergic signaling has two separate roles in monocyte/macrophage activation, namely to facilitate the initial detection of danger signals via toll-like receptors and subsequently to regulate nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain, leucine rich repeat and pyrin domain containing 3 inflammasome activation. Further dissection of these mechanisms may reveal novel therapeutic targets for immunomodulation in critical care patients.
