Abstract :

Lipins are phosphatidic acid phosphatases involved in synthesis of phospholipids and triglycerides, although they regulate cellular levels of important signaling lipids. Lipin-1 contributes positively to macrophage stimulation through TLR4, and other TLRs, by affecting MAPKs and AP-1 activation and, as a consequence, the generation of pro-inflammatory factors. Lipin-2 reduces proinflammatory signaling induced by saturated fatty acids in macrophages. Here we examined whether LPIN-2 mRNA inhibition affects TLR mediated inflammatory signaling in HT29, a colon cancer cell line. The LPIN-2 siRNA pre-treatment reduced the upregulated defensins stimulated by TLR ligands, LPS and flagellin. And the increased level of IL-8 mRNA by LPS and R848 were more increased by LPIN-2 mRNA inhibition. And LPS and R848 induced JNK and ERK phosphorylation whose expressions were more elevated by Lipin-2 inhibition. On the other hand, the lipid transcription factors like PPAR╬│ and PGC1╬▒ did not change by LPIN-2 siRNA pre-treatment. Taken together, LPIN-2 inhibition aggravates TLR ligands induced inflammatory signaling through ERK and JNK phosphorylation.
