OBJECTIVE: Acute lung disease is characterized by inflammation. This research aimed to investigate effect of trichostatin A (TSA) on microRNA-146a (miR-146a) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced alveolar macrophage injury model.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rat alveolar macrophage, NR8383, was cultured and induced using LPS to establish acute lung injury model in vitro level. Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) assay was used to determine cell viability of NR8383 cells. TSA was administrated to LPS-induced NR8383 cells. Quantitative Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) assay was utilized to evaluate TNF-α and miR-146a mRNA expression in LPS and/or TSA treated NR8383 cells. Enzyme-link immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to examine TNF-α levels.
RESULTS: This study selected 1 ng/ml and 10 ng/ml TSA as the optimal concentrations for treating NR8383 cells. LPS-induced acute lung injury model was successfully established. TSA administration significantly enhanced accounts of LPS-stimulated NR8383 cells. LPS induction significantly increased miR-146a mRNA expression in NR8383 cells compared to NR8383 cells (p<0.05). TSA administration significantly reduced the levels of TNF-α in LPS-induced NR8383 cells compared to those in LPS-induced NR8383 cells (p<0.05). TSA administration significantly enhanced miR-146a expression in LPS-induced NR8383 cells compared to that in LPS-induced NR8383 cells (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: TSA administration exerted anti-inflammation functions in LPS-induced acute lung injury model in vitro, which might be triggered by inhibiting TNF-α molecule and upregulating miR-146a expression. The present data hint that TSA could be considered as a potential therapeutic agent for treating acute lung injury.Free PDF Download
