Abstract

is one of the most frequently found oral spirochaetes in periodontitis and endodontic infections. LPS or glycolipids from bacteria are potent stimulators of innate immune and inflammatory systems. In this study the bioactivity of a phenol/water extract from subsp. (TSS-P) was analysed. TSS-P showed minimal endotoxicity and no inducing potential for proinflammatory cytokines (TNF- and IL-8) or for intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in human monocyte cell line THP-1 cells and primary cultured human gingival fibroblasts. Rather, it inhibited ICAM-1 expression and IL-8 secretion from cells stimulated by the LPS of and , which are known to be Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) agonists. However, this antagonistic activity was not shown in cells stimulated by peptidoglycan or IL-1. As its antagonistic mechanism, TSS-P blocked the binding of LPS to LPS-binding protein (LBP) and CD14, which are molecules involved in the recruitment of LPS to the cell membrane receptor complex TLR4–MD-2 for the intracellular signalling of LPS. TSS-P itself did not bind to MD-2 or THP-1 cells, but inhibited the binding of LPS to MD-2 or to the cells in the presence of serum (which could be replaced by recombinant human LBP and recombinant human CD14). The results suggest that TSS-P acts as an antagonist of TLR4 signalling by interfering with the functioning of LBP/CD14.
