Helicobacter felis-induced gastritis was suppressed in mice
overexpressing thioredoxin-1.

Thioredoxin-1 (TRX-1) is a redox-active protein involved in scavenging
reactive oxygen species and regulating redox-sensitive transcription
factors. TRX-1 is induced in various inflammatory conditions and shows
cytoprotective action. We investigated the roles of TRX-1 in the host
defense mechanism against Helicobacter felis (H. felis) infection.
Transgenic (TG) mice overexpressing human TRX-1 and wild-type (WT) mice
were orally inoculated with H. felis. After 2 months, histology,
oxidative damage, and gene expression of several cytokines, including
macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2), a murine equivalent to
interleukin (IL)-8, in the gastric mucosa were investigated.
Furthermore, the effects of TRX-1 on oxidative stress and neutrophil
migration were studied both in vivo and in vitro. The gastric mucosa
was thickened in H. felis-infected WT mice, but not in infected
TRX-1-TG mice. Histologically, all H. felis-infected WT mice developed
moderate-to-severe gastritis, whereas the development of gastritis was
significantly suppressed in infected TRX-1-TG mice. Oxidative damage
markers, 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine and malondialdehyde, increased in
the stomach of infected WT mice, but not TRX-1-TG mice. Upregulation of
IL-1beta and tumor necrosis factor-alpha gene expression in H.
felis-infected TRX-1-TG mice was significantly lower than in WT mice.
However, upregulation of MIP-2 and IL-7 was not different between the
two groups. TRX-1 suppressed oxidative cytotoxicity and DNA damage, and
inhibited neutrophil migration both in vivo and in vitro. The present
study suggests that overexpression of TRX-1 suppresses H. felis-induced
gastritis by inhibiting chemotaxis of neutrophils and reducing
oxidative stress.Laboratory Investigation advance online publication,
