Title in Portuguese
Regulação da homeostasia do retículo endoplasmático em linfócitos B na imunodeficiência comum variável.
Keywords in Portuguese
Anticorpos
Linfócitos B
Retículo endoplasmático
Abstract in Portuguese
A imunodeficiência comum variável (CVID) é caracterizada por hipogamaglobulinemia. Anteriormente identificou-se uma paciente com CVID que apresenta nível aumentado de estresse de retículo endoplasmático (ER), secundário a desregulação da via UPR. No presente trabalho, estendemos esta análise para outros pacientes e avaliamos o perfil de maturação de seus linfócitos B. Métodos: Western-blot, RT-PCR, Q-PCR, Citometria de Fluxo e cultura de células B ex vivo e imortalizadas. Resultados: A análise de 16 pacientes com CVID e 9 indivíduos saudáveis revelou três pacientes com porcentagens aumentadas de linfócitos B imaturos no sangue periférico. A análise da expressão de RNAm para BiP e XBP-1 em linfócitos B destes pacientes, após estímulo com LPS in vitro, identificou que os linfócitos B de um deles apresenta estresse de RE. Conclusão: Identificamos um subgrupo de pacientes com CVID que apresentam linfócitos B imaturos no sangue periférico. Um membro deste subgrupo apresenta estresse aumentado de ER.

Abstract in English
Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID) is characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia. Previously a CVID patient was identified with increased levels of Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress due to dysregulation of the UPR. In the present study these analyses were performed in other patients and healthy donors. Maturation markers of B lymphocytes were also characterized in these individuals. Methods: Western-blot, RT-PCR, Q-PCR, Flow cytometry and culturing of ex vivo and immortalized B cells. Results: The analysis of 16 CVID patients and 9 healthy donors revealed three patients that present higher percentage of immature B cells in peripheral blood. Analysis of expression of BiP and XBP1 induced by LPS treatment of B lymphocytes from these patients revealed that one patient present increased levels of ER stress.
