A study of the function of hnRNP A3 in the myeloid lineage and innate immunity
Summary:
The innate immune response against pathogens involves the activation of pro-inflammatory processes that need to be resolved once the threat is removed. The successful regulation of these responses relies on the production and posttranscriptional regulation of mRNAs encoding cytokines and RNA-binding proteins are major components of this posttranscriptional control. In this project, we studied the role of the RNA-binding protein hnRNP A3 under inflammatory conditions. Mice lacking hnRNP A3 in myeloid-lineage cells, which include many cells of the innate immune system, were also infected with bacterial pathogens. At the molecular level, activated macrophages from these mice displayed upregulation of both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory markers. The results of this study indicate that hnRNP A3 is a downregulator of macrophage activation.
