Abstract

The regulatory role of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) on the expression of suppressor of cytokine signalling 3 (SOCS-3) in response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was examined using peritoneal macrophages from TNF-α-deficient mice. The LPS-induced SOCS-3 expression was markedly augmented in macrophages from wild-type mice whereas such augmentation was not seen in the cells from TNF-α-deficient mice. However, there was no significant difference in the level of SOCS-3 messenger RNA expression between macrophages from wild-type mice and those from TNF-α-deficient mice. The addition of exogenous TNF-α augmented the LPS-induced SOCS-3 expression in macrophages from TNF-α-deficient mice. The pulse chase analysis suggested augmented degradation of LPS-induced SOCS-3 protein in macrophages from TNF-α-deficient mice. Moreover, MG 132, a 26S proteasome inhibitor, sustained the LPS-induced SOCS-3 expression in those cells. The tyrosine phosphorylation of SOCS-3 was definitely induced in LPS-stimulated macrophages from TNF-α-deficient mice but not wild-type mice. A tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor enhanced the tyrosine phosphorylation of SOCS-3 in wild-type mice and accelerated the degradation. Therefore, it was suggested that TNF-α prevented the degradation of SOCS-3 protein via inhibition of the tyrosine phosphorylation in LPS-stimulated macrophages.
