ABSTRACT Patten recognition receptors, which recognize pathogens or components of injured cells (danger), trigger activation of the
innate immune system. Whether and how the host distinguishes between danger- versus pathogen-associated molecular patterns
remains unresolved. We report that CD24-deficient mice exhibit increased susceptibility to danger- but not pathogen-associated
molecular patterns. CD24 associates with high mobility group box 1, heat shock protein 70, and heat shock protein 90; negatively
regulates their stimulatory activity; and inhibits nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) activation. This occurs at least in part through
CD24 association with Siglec-10 in humans or Siglec-G in mice. Our results reveal that the CD24–Siglec G pathway protects
the host against a lethal response to pathological cell death and discriminates danger- versus pathogen-associated molecular

    • "Accordingly, here we reasoned that MD-2 may similarly discriminate different HMGB1 isoforms to facilitate TLR4-dependent signaling. of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R; Tsung et al., 2005) or chemical toxicity (Antoine et al., 2013). HMGB1 can signal through a family of receptors, including RAGE (Huttunen et al., 1999), TLR4 (Yang et al., 2010), and cluster of differentiation 24 (CD24)/Siglec-10 (Chen et al., 2009), thereby functioning as a DAMP that alerts, recruits, and activates innate immune cells to produce a wide range of cytokines and chemokines. Thus, seemingly unrelated conditions such as infection and sterile injury can converge on a common process: inflammation , which is orchestrated by HMGB1 actively secreted from innate immune cells or passively released from damaged tissues (Zhang et al., 2010; Andersson and Tracey, 2011).

    ABSTRACT: Innate immune receptors for pathogen- and damage-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs and DAMPs) orchestrate inflammatory responses to infection and injury. Secreted by activated immune cells or passively released by damaged cells, HMGB1 is subjected to redox modification that distinctly influences its extracellular functions. Previously, it was unknown how the TLR4 signalosome distinguished between HMGB1 isoforms. Here we demonstrate that the extracellular TLR4 adaptor, myeloid differentiation factor 2 (MD-2), binds specifically to the cytokine-inducing disulfide isoform of HMGB1, to the exclusion of other isoforms. Using MD-2-deficient mice, as well as MD-2 silencing in macrophages, we show a requirement for HMGB1-dependent TLR4 signaling. By screening HMGB1 peptide libraries, we identified a tetramer (FSSE, designated P5779) as a specific MD-2 antagonist preventing MD-2-HMGB1 interaction and TLR4 signaling. P5779 does not interfere with lipopolysaccharide-induced cytokine/chemokine production, thus preserving PAMP-mediated TLR4-MD-2 responses. Furthermore, P5779 can protect mice against hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury, chemical toxicity, and sepsis. These findings reveal a novel mechanism by which innate systems selectively recognize specific HMGB1 isoforms. The results may direct toward strategies aimed at attenuating DAMP-mediated inflammation while preserving antimicrobial immune responsiveness. © 2015 Yang et al.

    • "CD24 was then shown to be able to bind HMGB1 and to function as an inhibitor of NF-␬B activation . CD24 though, doesn't have signalling capacities and it has to interact with siglec-10 (siglec-G in mice) as a co-receptor (Chen et al., 2009). CD24 and siglec-10, in turn, seem to have a very specific role in dampening only damage associated inflammation. "

    ABSTRACT: The ability of the immune system to give rise to an effective response against pathogens while maintaining tolerance towards self-tissues has always been an object of keen interest for immunologist. Over the years, different theories have been proposed to explain if and how the immune system is able to discriminate between self and non-self, including the Infectious Non-self theory from Charles Janeway and Polly Matzinger's Danger theory. Nowadays we know Janeway's theory is largely true, however the immune system does respond to injured, stressed and necrotic cells releasing danger signals (DAMPs) with a potent inflammatory response. To avoid unwanted prolonged autoimmune reactions, though, danger-induced inflammation should be tightly regulated. In the present review we discuss how prototypic DAMPs are able to induce inflammation and the peculiarity of danger-induced inflammation, as opposed to a complete immune response to fight pathogen invasions.

    • "Both TLR and NLR can be activated through either PAMPs or DAMPs. Interaction with coreceptors like CD24-Siglec-G/-10 [3] or CD14/MD2 [4] allows the PRRs to discriminate between DAMPs and PAMPs and subsequently influence the level of inflammation [5]. In general, activation of PRRs results in the production of proinflammatory cytokines and recruitment and activation of immune cells (Figure 1). "

    ABSTRACT: During myocardial infarction, sterile inflammation occurs. The danger model is a solid theoretic framework that explains this inflammation as danger associated molecular patterns activate the immune system. The innate immune system can sense danger signals through different pathogen recognition receptors (PRR) such as toll-like receptors, nod-like receptors and receptors for advanced glycation endproducts. Activation of a PRR results in the production of cytokines and the recruitment of leukocytes to the site of injury. Due to tissue damage and necrosis of cardiac cells, danger signals such as extracellular matrix (ECM) breakdown products, mitochondrial DNA, heat shock proteins and high mobility box 1 are released. Matricellular proteins are non-structural proteins expressed in the ECM and are upregulated upon injury. Some members of the matricellular protein family (like tenascin-C, osteopontin, CCN1 and the galectins) have been implicated in the inflammatory and reparative responses following myocardial infarction and may function as danger signals. In a clinical setting, danger signals can function as prognostic and/or diagnostic biomarkers and for drug targeting. In this review we will provide an overview of the established knowledge on the role of danger signals in myocardial infarction and we will discuss areas of interest for future research.
