Characterization of the receptor and the mechanisms underlying the inflammatory response induced by des-Arg9-BK in mouse pleurisy.
Br J Pharmacol. 1998 Jan; 123(2):281-91.BJ

Abstract

1 The characterization of the B1 kinin receptor, and some mediators involved in the inflammatory response elicited by intrathoracic (i.t.) administration of des-Arg9-bradykinin (BK) in the mouse model of pleurisy, was investigated. 2 An i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK (10-100 nmol per site), a selective B1 agonist, caused a significant and dose-related increase in the vascular permeability observed after 5 min, which peaked at 1 h, associated with an increase in cell influx, mainly neutrophils, and, to a lesser extent, mononuclear cell influx, peaking at 4 h and lasting for up to 48 h. The increase in fluid leakage caused by des-Arg9-BK was completely resolved 4 h after peptide injection. I.t. injection of Lys-des-Arg9-BK (30 nmol per site) caused a similar inflammatory response. 3 Both the exudation and the neutrophil influx elicited by i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK were significantly antagonized (P<0.01) by an i.t. injection of the selective B1 antagonists des-Arg9-[Leu8]-BK (60 and 100 nmol per site) or des-Arg9-NPC 17731 (5 nmol per site), administered in association with des-Arg9-BK (P<0.01), or 30 and 60 min before the cellular peak, respectively. In contrast, an i.t. injection of the B2 bradykinin selective receptor antagonist Hoe 140 (30 nmol per site), at a dose which consistently antagonized bradykinin (10 nmol per site)-induced pleurisy, had no significant effect on des-Arg9-BK-induced pleurisy. 4 An i.t. injection of the selective tachykinin receptor antagonists (NK1) FK 888 (1 nmol per site), (NK2) SR 48968 (20 nmol per site) or (NK3) SR 142801 (10 nmol per site), administered 5 min before pleurisy induction, significantly antagonized neutrophil migration caused by i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK. In addition, FK 888 and SR 142801, but not SR 48968, also prevented the influx of mononuclear cells in response to i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK (P<0.01). However, the NK3 receptor antagonist SR 142801 (10 nmol per site) also significantly inhibited des-Arg9-BK-induced plasma extravasation. An i.t. injection of the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist CGRP8-37 (1 nmol per site), administered 5 min before pleurisy induction, inhibited des-Arg9-BK-induced plasma extravasation (P<0.01), without significantly affecting the total and differential cell migration. 5 The nitric oxide synthase inhibitors L-NOARG and L-NAME (1 pmol per site), administered 30 min beforehand, almost completely prevented des-Arg9-BK (i.t.)-induced neutrophil cell migration (P<0.01), and, to a lesser extent, mononuclear cell migration (P<0.01). The D-enantiomer D-NAME had no effect on des-Arg9-BK-induced pleurisy. At the same dose range, L-NOARG and L-NAME inhibited the total cell migration (P<0.01). L-NAME, but not L-NOARG caused significant inhibition of des-Arg9-BK-induced fluid leakage. Indomethacin (1 mg kg(-1), i.p.), administered 1 h before des-Arg9-BK (30 nmol per site), inhibited the mononuclear cell migration (P<0.05), but, surprisingly, increased the neutrophil migration at 4 h without interfering with plasma extravasation. The administration of terfenadine (50 mg kg(-1), i.p.), 30 min before des-Arg9-BK (30 nmol per site), did not interfere significantly with the total cell migration or with the plasma extravasation in the mouse pleurisy caused by i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK. 6 Pretreatment of animals with the lipopolysaccharide of E. coli (LPS; 10 microg per animal, i.v.) for 24 h did not result in any significant change of the inflammatory response induced by i.t. injection of des-Arg9-BK compared with the saline treated group. However, the identical treatment of mice with LPS resulted in a marked enhancement of des-Arg9-BK induced paw oedema (P<0.01). 7 In conclusion, we have demonstrated that the inflammatory response induced by i.t. injection of desArg9-BK, in a murine model of pleurisy, is mediated by stimulation of constitutive B1 receptors. (These responses are largely mediated by release of neuropeptides such as substanceP or CGRP and also by NO, but products derived from cyclo-oxygenase pathway and histamine seem not to be involved. Therefore, these results further support the notion that the B1 kinin receptor has an important role in modulating inflammatory responses, and it is suggested that selective B1 antagonists may provide therapeutic benefit in the treatment of inflammatory and allergic conditions.
