Transcriptional landscape of psoriasis identifies the involvement of IL36 and IL36RN


Authors: Keermann, Maris; Koeks, Sulev; Reimann, Ene; Prans, Ele; Abram, Kristi; Kingo, Kuelli

Background: In present study we performed whole transcriptome analysis in plaque psoriasis patients and compared lesional skin with non-lesional skin and with the skin from healthy controls. We sequenced total RNA from 12 lesional (LP), 12 non-lesional (NLP) and from 12 normal (C) skin biopsies. Results: Compared with previous gene expression profiling studies we had three groups under analysis - LP, NLP and C. Using NLP samples allows to see the transcriptome of visually normal skin from psoriasis patient. In LP skin S100A12, S100A7A, LCE3E, DEFB4A, IL19 were found up regulated. In addition to already these well-described genes, we also found several other genes related to psoriasis. Namely, KLK9, OAS2, OAS3, PLA2G, IL36G, IL36RN were found to be significantly and consistently related to the psoriatic lesions and this finding is supported also by previous studies. The genes up-regulated in the LP samples were related to the innate immunity, IL17 and IL10 networks. In NLP samples innate immunity and IL17 network were activated, but activation of IL10 network was not evident. The transcriptional changes characteristic in the NLP samples can be considered as a molecular signature of "dormant psoriasis". Conclusions: Taken together, our study described the transcriptome profile characteristic for LP and NLP psoriatic skin. RNA profile of the NLP skin is in between the lesional and healthy skin, with its own specific pattern. We found that both LP and NLP have up-regulated IL17 network, whereas LP skin has up regulated IL10 related cytokines (IL19, IL20, IL24). Moreover, IL36G and IL36RN were identified as strong regulators of skin pathology in both LP and NLP skin samples, with stronger influence in LP samples.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third leading cause of cancer-associated mortality. The present study aimed to investigate novel biomarkers to predict prognosis and provide a theoretical basis for studies of the pathogenesis and the development of therapies for CRC. The present study compared mRNA expression levels of patients with CRC with short- and long-term prognosis and of individuals with and without tumors in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified via volcano plot and Venn diagram analysis. Gene Ontology (GO) analysis and gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) were performed to identify the functions of the DEGs, and the DEGs were further verified using clinical CRC samples. A total of 10 DEGs were identified as candidate genes using the TCGA database, and four DEGs [defensin beta 4A (DEFB4A), hyaluronan binding protein 2 (HABP2), oleoyl-ACP hydrolase and TBC1 domain family member 3G] were associated with poor prognosis of patients with CRC. Two DEGs (DEFB4A and HABP2) were upregulated in tumor tissues of patients with CRC in the TCGA database. GO and GSEA analyses revealed that DEFB4A was highly associated with immunosuppression, participates in 'myeloid leukocyte differentiation', 'leukocyte proliferation' and 'positive regulation of leukocyte-mediated immunity', and was positively correlated with CD11b, CD14, CD45, CD163 and IL17A. Furthermore, DEFB4A expression was significantly upregulated in patients with large tumors, advanced cancer stage, lymph node metastasis and liver metastasis. Survival analysis revealed that DEFB4A upregulation was associated with poor prognosis. DEFB4A gene knockdown experiments demonstrated that DEF4BA promotes cell migration. These results indicated that DEFB4A potentially promotes tumor growth by regulating immunosuppressive activity and provided novel insights into the diagnosis and treatment of CRC.
