Abstract

The lysophospholipids sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) act via G-protein coupled receptors S1P1–5 and LPA1–3 respectively, and are implicated in allergy. Eosinophils accumulate at innervating cholinergic nerves in asthma and adhere to nerve cells via intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1). IMR-32 neuroblastoma cells were used as an in vitro cholinergic nerve cell model. The Gi coupled receptors S1P1, S1P3, LPA1, LPA2 and LPA3 were expressed on IMR-32 cells. Both S1P and LPA induced ERK phosphorylation and ERK- and Gi-dependent up-regulation of ICAM-1 expression, with differing time courses. LPA also induced ERK- and Gi-dependent up-regulation of the eosinophil chemoattractant, CCL-26. The eosinophil granule protein eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) induced ERK-dependent up-regulation of transcription of S1P1, LPA1, LPA2 and LPA3, providing the situation whereby eosinophil granule proteins may enhance S1P- and/or LPA- induced eosinophil accumulation at nerve cells in allergic conditions.
