Abstract Glycyrrhizin (GL) is a major constituent of licorice root and has been suggested to inhibit the release of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1), a protein considered representative of damage-associated molecular patterns. We found that GL bound HMGB1 but not RAGE with a moderate equilibrium dissociation constant value based on surface plasmon resonance analysis. This complex formation prevented HMGB1 from binding to RAGE in vitro. The effects of glycyrrhizin on traumatic brain injury (TBI) induced by fluid percussion were examined in rats or mice in the present study. GL was administered intravenously after TBI. Treatment of rats with GL dose-dependently suppressed the increase in BBB permeability and impairment of motor functions, in association with the inhibition of HMGB1 translocation in neurons in injured sites. The beneficial effects of GL on motor and cognitive functions persisted for 7 days after injury. The expression of TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6 in injured sites was completely inhibited by GL treatment. In RAGE−/− mice, the effects of GL were not observed. These results suggested that GL may be a novel therapeutic agent for TBI through its interference with HMGB1 and RAGE interaction.

Abstract High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is an endogenous danger signal molecule. In a previous report, we showed that HMGB1 is massively released during NMDA-induced acute damaging process in the postischemic brain and triggers inflammatory processes, like microglial activation. siRNA-mediated HMGB1 knockdown markedly reduced infarct volumes, confirming the crucial role played by HMGB1 in the postischemic brain. In the present study, we showed neuroprotective effects of glycyrrhizin (GL) in t...

After tissue damage, inflammatory cells infiltrate the tissue and release proinflammatory cytokines. HMGB1 (high mobility group box 1), a nuclear protein released by necrotic and severely stressed cells, promotes cytokine release via its interaction with the TLR4 (Toll-like receptor 4) receptor and cell migration via an unknown mechanism. We show that HMGB1-induced recruitment of inflammatory cells depends on CXCL12. HMGB1 and CXCL12 form a heterocomplex, which we characterized by nuclear magnet...

Fine control of neuronal activity is crucial to rapidly adjust to subtle changes of the environment. This fine tuning was thought to be purely neuronal until the discovery that astrocytes are active players of synaptic transmission. In the adult hippocampus, microglia are the other major glial cell type. Microglia are highly dynamic and closely associated with neurons and astrocytes. They react rapidly to modifications of their environment and are able to release molecules known to control neuro...

Abstract Thrombin activates immunocompetent microglia and increases release of inflammatory cytokines under intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) insults. Also, thrombin injection into the striatum evokes acute necrosis and delayed apoptosis of neurons. A nucleoprotein high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) that is released from necrotic cells has been suggested to behave like a cytokine and cause over-facilitation of immune functions. Here we examined the effect of glycyrrhizin, known as an inhibitor of HM...

Background and Purpose— High mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) exhibits inflammatory cytokine-like activity in the extracellular space. We previously demonstrated that intravenous injection of anti-HMGB1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) remarkably ameliorated brain infarction induced by middle cerebral artery occlusion in rats. In the present study, we focused on the protective effects of the mAb on the marked translocation of HMGB1 in the brain, the disruption of the blood–brain barrier (BBB), and the resu...

Recent evidence in experimental models of seizures and in temporal lobe epilepsy support an important role of high-mobility group box 1 and toll-like receptor 4 signalling in the mechanisms of hyperexcitability leading to the development and perpetuation of seizures. In this study, we investigated the expression and cellular distribution of toll-like receptors 2 and 4, and of the receptor for advanced glycation end products, and their endogenous ligand high-mobility group box 1, in epilepsy asso...

Clearance of apoptotic cells is necessary for tissue development, homeostasis and resolution of inflammation. The uptake of apoptotic cells is initiated by an ‘eat-me' signal, such as phosphatidylserine, on the cell surface and phagocytes recognize the signal by using specific receptors. In this study, we show that the soluble form of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) binds to phosphatidylserine as well as to the apoptotic thymocytes. RAGE-deficient (Rage−/−) alveolar macro...

High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), a ubiquitous DNA-binding protein, can be released into extracellular space and function as a strong proinflammatory cytokine, which plays critical roles in the pathogenesis of various inflammatory diseases. Here, we showed that BoHV-1 productive infection in MDBK cells at later stage significantly increases HMGB1 mRNA expression and the protein release, but decreases the steady-state protein levels. Virus infection increases accumulation of HMGB1 protein in bot...

Background Cardiac arrest (CA) can induce oxidative stress after resuscitation, which causes cellular and organ damage. We hypothesized that post-resuscitation normoxic therapy would protect organs against oxidative stress and improve oxygen metabolism and survival. We tested the oxygen-sensitive reactive oxygen species from mitochondria to determine the association with hyperoxia-induced oxidative stress. Methods and Results Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to 10-minute asphyxia-induced CA wi...

Abstract The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE)- Nuclear Factor kappa B (NF-κB) signal pathway may represent a new target for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The aim of the study is to investigate effects of papaverine on secondary signaling mechanisms through this pathway in mice TBI model.Immunohistochemically, while the number of RAGE and NF- κB positive cells, apoptotic cells increased, the number of NeuN positive cells reduced in TBI.Papaverine reduced the nu...
Early or primary injury due to brain aggression, such as mechanical trauma, hemorrhage or is-chemia, triggers the release of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) in the extracellular space. Some DAMPs, such as S100B, participate in the regulation of cell growth and survival but may also trigger cellular damage as their concentration increases in the extracellular space. When DAMPs bind to pattern-recognition receptors, such as the receptor of advanced glycation end-products (RAGE), they ...

Abstract Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is amongst the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite evidence of neurogenesis post-TBI, survival and integration of newborn neurons remains impaired. High Mobility Group Box protein 1 (HMGB1) is an ‘alarmin’ released hyper-acutely following TBI and implicated in hosting the neuro-inflammatory response to injury. It is also instrumental in mediating neurogenesis under physiological conditions. Given its dual role in mediati...

Sepsis and septic shock are still a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in intensive care units worldwide. Sepsis is an uncontrolled and excessive response of the innate immune system toward the invading infectious microbes, characterized by the hyper-production of pro-inflammatory mediators such as interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, tumor-necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1). In severe sepsis, the overwhelming production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and reactive oxygen s...

Increasing evidence suggests that inflammatory responses are involved in the progression of brain injuries induced by a diverse range of insults, including ischemia, hemorrhage, trauma, epilepsy, and degenerative diseases. During the processes of inflammation, disruption of the blood–brain barrier (BBB) may play a critical role in the enhancement of inflammatory responses and may initiate brain damage because the BBB constitutes an interface between the brain parenchyma and the bloodstream conta...

Despite medical advances, neurological recovery after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains poor. Elevated levels of high mobility group box protein-1 (HMGB1) are associated with poor outcomes; likely via interaction with receptors for advanced-glycation-end-products (RAGE). We examined the hypothesis that HMGB1 post-TBI is anti-neurogenic and whether this is pharmacologically reversible. Post-natal rat cortical mixed neuro-glial cell cultures were subjected to needle-scratch injury and ex...
