Sažetak
We investigated the expression of gangliosides and neutral glycosphingolipids (GSLs) in the lymph nodes of mice lacking the gene for the tumour necrosis factor-alpha receptor p55 (TNFR1). The GSL expression in the tissues of mice homozygous (TNFR1-/-) or heterozygous (TNFR1+/-) for the deletion was analysed by flow cytometry and high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) followed by immunostaining with specific antibodies. HPTLC immunostaining revealed that lymph nodes from TNFR1-/- mice had reduced expression of ganglioside GM1b and GalNAc-GM1b, neolacto-series gangliosides, as well as the globo- (Gb3, Gb4 and Gb5) and ganglio-series (Gg3 and Gg4) neutral GSLs. Flow cytometry of freshly isolated lymph node cells showed no significant differences in GSL expression, except for the GalNAc-GM1b ganglioside, which was less abundant on T lymphocytes from TNFR1-/- lymph nodes. In TNFR1-/- mice, GalNAc-GM1b+/CD4+ T cells were two-fold less abundant (3.8% vs. 7.6% in the control mice), whereas GalNAc-GM1b+/CD8+ T cells were four-fold less abundant (5.0% vs. 20.2% in the control mice). This study provides in vivo evidence that TNF signalling via the TNFR1 is important for the activation of GM1b-type ganglioside biosynthetic pathway in CD8 T lymphocytes, suggesting its possible role in the effector T lymphocyte function.
