ABSTRACT Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling is pivotal to innate and adaptive immune responses and must be tightly controlled. The mechanisms of TLR signaling have been the focus of extensive studies. Here we report that the tripartite-motif protein TRIM30alpha, a RING protein, was induced by TLR agonists and interacted with the TAB2-TAB3-TAK1 adaptor-kinase complex involved in the activation of transcription factor NF-kappaB. TRIM30alpha promoted the degradation of TAB2 and TAB3 and inhibited NF-kappaB activation induced by TLR signaling. In vivo studies showed that transfected or transgenic mice overexpressing TRIM30alpha were more resistant to endotoxic shock. Consistent with that, in vivo 'knockdown' of TRIM30alpha mRNA by small interfering RNA impaired lipopolysaccharide-induced tolerance. Finally, expression of TRIM30alpha depended on NF-kappaB activation. Our results collectively indicate that TRIM30alpha negatively regulates TLR-mediated NF-kappaB activation by targeting degradation of TAB2 and TAB3 by a 'feedback' mechanism.

    ABSTRACT: JMJD3, a Jumonji C family histone demethylase, plays an important role in the regulation of inflammation induced by the transcription factor nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) in response to various stimuli. JMJD3 is a histone-3 lysine-27 trimethylation (H3K27me3) demethylase, a histone mark associated with transcriptional repression and activation of a diverse set of genes. The present study assessed stable JMJD3 knockdown (KD)-dependent proteomic profiling in human leukemia monocyte (THP-1) cells to analyze the JMJD3-mediated differential changes of marker expression in inflammatory cells. To analyze the protein expression profile of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)-stimulated JMJD3-kd THP-1 cells, we employed matrix-assisted-laser-desorption/ionization-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS). Additionally, Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) was applied to establish the molecular networks. A comparative proteomic profile was determined in TNF-α-treated both of JMJD3-kd THP-1 cells and THP-1 scrambled (sc) cells. The expression of tripartite motif protein (TRIM5), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glia maturation factor-γ (GMFG), caspase recruitment domain family, member 14 (CARMA2), and dUTP pyrophosphatase were significantly down-regulated, whereas heat shock protein beta-1 (HspB1) and prohibition were significantly up-regulated in JMJD3-kd THP-1 cells. The molecular and signaling networks of the differentially expressed proteins in JMJD3-kd THP-1 cells were determined by IPA. The molecular network signatures and functional proteomics obtained in this study may facilitate the suppression of different key inflammatory regulators through JMJD3-attenuation, which would be crucial to evaluate potential therapeutic targets and to elucidate the molecular mechanism of JMJD3-kd dependent effects in THP-1 cells.

    ABSTRACT: In response to virus infection, type I interferons (IFNs) induce several genes, most of whose functions are largely unknown. Here, we show that the tripartite motif (TRIM) protein, TRIM79α, is an IFN-stimulated gene (ISG) product that specifically targets tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), a Flavivirus that causes encephalitides in humans. TRIM79α restricts TBEV replication by mediating lysosome-dependent degradation of the flavivirus NS5 protein, an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase essential for virus replication. NS5 degradation was specific to tick-borne flaviviruses, as TRIM79α did not recognize NS5 from West Nile virus (WNV) or inhibit WNV replication. In the absence of TRIM79α, IFN-β was less effective in inhibiting tick-borne flavivirus infection of mouse macrophages, highlighting the importance of a single virus-specific ISG in establishing an antiviral state. The specificity of TRIM79α for TBEV reveals a remarkable ability of the innate IFN response to discriminate between closely related flaviviruses.

    ABSTRACT: Trim5α is a host antiviral protein that recognizes incoming retroviral capsids in the cytoplasm and prevents productive infections. Although present in most mammals, the state of the Trim5 gene is dynamic in that primates have one copy with several splice variants, while rodents and cows have multiple copies. Mouse Trim30 (one of the mouse Trim5α homologs) has been shown to negatively regulate NF-kappaB activation by targeting upstream signaling intermediates TAB2 and TAB3 for degradation. We show that human Trim5α also affects levels of TAB2, resulting in abrogation of TAB2-dependent NF-kappaB activation. Surprisingly, unlike mouse Trim30, human and rhesus Trim5α are able to activate NF-kappaB-driven reporter gene expression in a dose-dependent manner. We show that Trim5α uses distinct domains for the distinct abilities of affecting TAB2 levels, regulating NF-kappaB, and recognizing retroviral capsids. Our results demonstrate functions of Trim5α that are not dependent on recognizing the retroviral capsid.
