Aggregation of Human Trophoblast Cells into Three-Dimensional Culture System Enhances Anti-Inflammatory Characteristics through Cytoskeleton Regulation
AbstractBackground: Three-dimensional (3D) culture changes cell characteristics and function, suggesting that 3D culture provides a more physiologically relevant environment for cells compared with 2D culture. We investigated the differences in cell functions depending on the culture model in human trophoblast cells (Sw.71). Methods: Sw.71 cells were incubated in 2D monolayers or simple 3D spheroids. After incubation, cells were corrected to assess RNA-seq transcriptome or protein expression, and culture medium were corrected to detect cytokines. To clarify the role of actin cytoskeleton, spheroid Sw.71 cells were treated mycalolide B (inhibitor of actin polymerization) in a 3D culture. Results: RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, results revealed that 3D-cultured cells had a different transcriptional profile compared with 2D-cultured cells, especially regarding inflammation-related molecules. Although interleukin-6 (IL-6) mRNA level was higher in 3D-culured cells, its secretion levels were higher in 2D-cultured cells. In addition, the levels of mRNA and protein expression of regnase-1, regulatory RNase of inflammatory cytokine, significantly increased in 3D culture, suggesting post-translational modification of IL-6 mRNA via regnase-1. Treatment with mycalolide B reduced cell-to-cell contact to build 3D formation and increased expression of actin cytoskeleton, resulting in increased IL-6 secretin. Conclusion: Cell dimensionality plays an essential role in governing the spatiotemporal cellular outcomes, including inflammatory cytokine production and its negative regulation associated with regnase-1.
