摘要

Chronic systemic inflammation is implicated in the systemic manifestations and, probably, the excess mortality risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The role of nuclear factor (NF)-κB repressing factor (NRF), a DNA-binding, protein-inhibiting NF-κB response gene, in human diseases has not been explored. We hypothesised that the NRF-negative regulatory mechanism is impaired in COPD peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) leading to excessive interleukin (IL)-8/CXCL8 production. NRF expression, NF-κB activation, IL-8/CXCL8 release and intracellular oxidative stress were assessed in PBMCs of normal subjects and stable COPD patients. Primary PBMCs with NRF overexpression, NRF knockdown and exposure to H2O 2 were used to elucidate the mechanisms. Stable COPD patients, especially those with severe COPD, showed decreased NRF expression, enhanced NF-κB activation and increased IL-8/CXCL8 release in PBMCs compared with normal subjects. This was associated with reduced NRF and increased RNA polymerase II occupancy at the IL-8/CXCL8 promoter. NRF knockdown enhanced IL-8/CXCL8 production in normal PBMCs, whilst NRF overexpression attenuated IL-8/CXCL8 production. Intracellular oxidative stress was increased in COPD PBMCs. H2O2-decreased NRF expression and -enhanced IL-8/CXCL8 production was augmented in COPD PBMCs. NRF expression is reduced in PBMCs of stable COPD patients, probably through oxidative stress, leading to increased production of IL-8/CXCL8 and potentially chronic systemic inflammation. Copyright
