Analysis of IL-22 contribution to hepcidin induction and hypoferremia during the response to LPS in vivo
Wallace, D.F. & Subramaniam, V.N. (2015) Analysis of IL-22 contribution to hepcidin induction and hypoferremia during the response to LPS in vivo. International Immunology, 27(6), pp. 281-287.
The anaemia of chronic disease (ACD) results from inflammation-mediated up-regulation of the iron regulatory hormone hepcidin, with the consequent sequestration of iron limiting its availability for erythropoiesis. The inflammatory cytokine IL-6, a regulator of hepcidin, has been implicated in this process. Recent in vivo and in vitro studies indicate that IL-22 is also able to stimulate hepcidin expression. We aimed to determine if IL-22 had a role in causing the hypoferremia associated with the inflammatory response. Wild-type and Il22-knockout mice were subjected to an acute inflammatory stimulus via administration of LPS and the response of hepcidin and iron homeostasis was analysed. In the absence of IL-22, there was a response of hepcidin, resulting in a reduction in serum iron levels. However, the hypoferremic response to LPS was slightly blunted in mice lacking IL-22, suggesting that, during LPS-mediated inflammation, IL-22 may play a minor role in mediating the hypoferremic response. These results may have implications for the treatment and management of the ACD.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
