ABSTRACT

Exendin-4 (EX4) has been reported to attenuate myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury and inflammatory and oxidative responses. Nuclear DNA-binding protein high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein acts as a late mediator of severe vascular inflammatory conditions. However, the effect of EX4 on HMGB1-induced inflammatory response has not been studied. First, we accessed this question by monitoring the effects of posttreatment EX4 on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-mediated release of HMGB1 and HMGB1-mediated regulation of proinflammatory responses in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and septic mice. Posttreatment EX4 was found to suppress LPS-mediated release of HMGB1 and inhibited HMGB1-mediated hyperpermeability and leukocyte migration in septic mice. EX4 also induced downregulation of CLP-induced release of HMGB1, production of IL-6, and mortality. Collectively, these results suggest that EX4 may be regarded as a candidate therapeutic agent for treatment of vascular inflammatory diseases via inhibition of the HMGB1 signaling pathway.
