Hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha (HIF-1α) as a factor mediating the relationship between obesity and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the British Society for Rheumatology. Because we focused on the synovium, mTOR and lysophosphatidic acid were not described in greater detail, as these factors were only found to be elevated in chondrocytes/cartilage and not in synovial fibroblasts or the synovium. Hyaluronan is a glycosaminoglycan that binds to the CD44 receptor. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. These non-Smad signalling factors are central mediators in multiple pathways, which makes their mechanism of action very elaborate, and therefore they are potentially less suitable as targets to interfere with synovial fibrosis. . This yielded 45 results. Chemokines and their corresponding receptors have been well characterized in RA progression, but less so in OA pathogenesis. Oehler et al..  divided osteoarthritic synoviopathy into four different subtypes based on the nature of the synovium: hyperplastic, inflammatory, fibrotic or detritus-rich. In addition, gene expression of the collagen cross-linking gene, Plod2 was increased in fibroblast-like synoviocytes in the presence of this FCM. . The expression of TRAIL‐R2 (DR5) was determined by flow cytometry on fibroblasts grown from the synovial fluid of patients with RA, osteoarthritis (OA), seronegative arthritis, and unclassified monarthritis or oligoarthritis, and on fibroblasts from the synovial membrane of RA and OA patients. . The main cause of synovial fibrosis seems to be TGF-β–ALK5 signalling. Blaney Davidson EN van der Kraan PM van den Berg WB. injections of CTGF and TGF-β, a unilateral ureteral obstruction renal fibrosis model and an intratracheal bleomycin instillation model of pulmonary fibrosis . Furthermore, this IL-6 inflammatory response, mediated by chondrocyte-synovial fibroblast cross-talk, was enhanced by the obesity-related adipokine leptin. Disclosure statement: The authors have declared no conflicts of interest. fibroblast synovial cells and chondrocytes . Casticin suppresses monoiodoacetic acid-induced knee osteoarthritis through inhibiting HIF-1α/NLRP3 inflammasome signaling. USA.gov. . We look forward to an experiment where PLOD2 is blocked in an OA model accompanied by fibrosis in order to determine whether this approach indeed prevents synovial fibrosis. For instance, in irradiation-induced kidney fibrosis, ALK1+/− mice developed less inflammation and fibrosis at 20 weeks after irradiation compared with wild-type littermates . The intima forms an interface between the cavity containing SF and the subintimal layer. Blocking TGF-β would result in serious side effects and thus cannot be considered the ultimate cure for fibrosis. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0243359. In the present study, we found an elevated hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) level in the synovial tissue of KOA model rats, and inhibiting the increase of HIF-1α could improve synovial fibrosis in rats. In industrialized countries, alterations in lifestyle and hygiene during the last century have shifted the sp… The role of ALK1 in fibrosis is not completely clear, and the literature on this seems to be inconsistent. Synovial fibrosis contributes to joint pain and stiffness, which are the main symptoms of OA [2–4]. Obes Rev. It is reported that urotensin II may stimulate collagen synthesis via the ERK1/2 and TGF-β/Smad2/3 signalling pathway and may in this way contribute to fibrosis [68, 74]. The subintima is composed of loose connective tissue and merges with the dense collagen-rich fibrous outer layer of the joint capsule. Human Fibroblast-Like Synoviocytes-Osteoarthritis: HFLS-OA, adult; find Sigma-Aldrich-408OA-05A MSDS, related peer-reviewed papers, technical documents, similar products & more at Sigma-Aldrich. A vast number of factors can contribute to fibrosis, many of which are cell type or disease specific. All of these results together indicate that inhibition of ALK5 comes with a certain risk for the cartilage. Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) are the main effector cells of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) synovial fibrosis. Thickening of the lining layer, lymphocytic infiltration and increased formation of blood vessels can be seen in RA synovium. Failure of therapeutic approaches for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) based on the inhibition of metalloproteinases, might be because of their constitutive expression in homeostasis, together with their network complexity. During adulthood, CTGF is expressed in endothelia and neurons in the cerebral cortex, where it promotes angiogenesis and tissue integrity, and in the female reproductive tract, where it regulates both follicle development and ovulation [44–46]. Diminished collagen degradation resulting from increased pyridinoline cross-links per collagen triple helix, results in collagen accumulation, which is one of the hallmarks of fibrosis. The inflammation of the synovium can be observed in both of the two diseases. In addition, both the synovial fibroblasts and the chondrocytes in the cartilage strongly induce CTGF expression upon TGF-β stimulation [14, 59]. Synovium in the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and is among the most prevalent chronic human health disorders in an aging population. Our last report showed that NLRP1 and NLRP3 inflammasomes may mediate LPS/ATP-induced FLSs pyroptosis in KOA. 2021 Jan 20;12(1):467. doi: 10.1038/s41467-020-20761-5. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error, The synovial tissue of KOA rats was in a state of aggravated hypoxia. Synovial fibroblasts are found in the lining as well as in the sublining layer of the synovium. In this regard, the following factors are discussed: TGF-β, connective tissue growth factor, procollagen-lysine, 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase 2, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1, A disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain 12, urotensin-II, prostaglandin F2α and hyaluronan. However, ALK1+/− mice with ureteral unilateral obstruction–induced kidney fibrosis showed (after 15 days) significantly higher expression of type I collagen compared with wild-type mice . Regulation of inflammatory cytokines on rheumatoid synoviocytes by medicated serum of asarinin. (a) The silencing…, Inhibition of FLS pyroptosis may alleviate fibrosis. Understanding how synovial fibrosis contributes to OA pathology and symptoms might provide avenues for future OA therapies. Synovial fibrosis contributes to joint pain and stiffness, which are the main symptoms of OA . This may be worth investigating, because besides the potential antifibrotic effects, inhibition of ALK1 is expected to reduce MMP13 expression in chondrocytes and therefore MMP-mediated cartilage damage—a potential win–win situation [90, 91]. It is suggested by Leask and Abraham  that CTGF mediates its effects through integrin- and heparin sulphate proteoglycan–dependent mechanisms, and that the ability of CTGF to bind cell surface heparin sulphate proteoglycans (which are present at high levels in the joint) is essential for CTGF activity. The fibroblast activation protein alpha+ (FAPα+) thymus cell antigen 1+(THY1+) FLS, located in the synovial sub-lining, selectively promotes inflammation in arthritis with little effect on the bone and cartilage destruction and the FAPα+THY1- Several factors can contribute to excessive deposition of the ECM and the resultant synovial fibrosis, either by increasing ECM synthesis or by decreasing its degradation. Frohlich C Nehammer C Albrechtsen Ret al. synovial lining. Furthermore, in a TGF-β-driven murine model of dermal fibrosis, inhibition of TGF-β-dependent ERK phosphorylation showed strong and dose-dependent antifibrotic effects on skin thickening . In this review we focus on processes/factors shown to play a role in OA-related synovial fibrosis. Your comment will be reviewed and published at the journal's discretion. eCollection 2019. Remst DF Blaney Davidson EN Vitters ELet al. At this moment the underlying mechanism of OA-related synovial fibrosis is not known and there is no cure available. The synovial tissue of KOA rats was in a state of aggravated hypoxia.…, HIF-1 α inhibitor attenuated synovial fibrosis in rats. The mechanism by which CTGF regulates Smad7 is not yet fully unravelled. For scleroderma fibroblasts, it was demonstrated that ALK5-dependent upregulation of collagen and CTGF does not involve Smad2/3 activation, but is mediated by ALK1/Smad1 and the TGF-β-induced non-Smad-dependent extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)1/2 pathways [31, 32]. (a) Representative synovial tissues stained with pimonidazole, 400x, scale bar = 20. In various fibrotic diseases, for example, hepatic, pulmonary and cardiac fibrosis, urotensin II levels are elevated [70–73]. The underlying mechanisms that cause OA are still not totally unravelled, and (apart … 2017;13(3):155–163. That hyaluronan may be beneficial in the reduction of fibrosis by attenuating TGF-β signalling again suggests a major role for TGF-β signalling in fibrosis. In this review we discuss factors that have been reported to be involved in synovial fibrosis. Most interestingly, both ADAM12-S and ADAM12-L were upregulated in the synovial tissue of patients with OA and positively correlated with the grade of synovial fibrosis, suggesting a role for ADAM12 in OA-related synovial fibrosis [11, 77]. Because the specific roles of either Smad2 or Smad3 can be tissue dependent, the individual functions of Smad2 and Smad3 in the synovium have yet to be determined. The analysis of synovial fibroblast in RA reaches back to the late 60s and early 70s with first studies done … Our finding that CTGF can cause transient fibrosis is in line with the observation that CTGF by itself can promote collagen synthesis. Relationship between the pyroptosis of fibroblast‑like synoviocytes and HMGB1 secretion in knee osteoarthritis. Periostin; knee osteoarthritis; Synovial fibroblast; Bone turnover. However, it has not yet been determined whether PTHrP is actually produced in synovial cells established from synovial membrane in cul- ture. The synovium produces SF, which is crucial for chondrocyte nutrition, and protects the cartilage from wear and tear by lubrication . Most likely the role of TIMP-1 may vary between the various types of fibrosis, and its role in synovial fibrosis has yet to be discovered. To our knowledge no blocking or overexpression studies of PLOD2 currently exist that determine its direct function in the fibrotic process. This, because hyaluronan can form a complex with Adamts5, and ablation of Adamts5 has been shown to prevent both cartilage erosion and fibrotic remodelling in challenged joints . This study was undertaken to analyse the transcriptome of OASFs as compared to RASFs and healthy synovial fibroblasts (HSFs). At present, there are no options for interfering with synovial fibrosis; however, preventing or reversing fibrosis in OA might result in major symptom relief. Therefore, inhibition of TIMP-1 in an OA joint is not the preferred option for interfering with OA-related synovial fibrosis. Subsequently, we established LPS/ATP-induced model in FLSs mimicking the inflammatory environment of KOA. Furthermore, cultured renal fibroblasts from ALK1+/− mice expressed more collagen type I and fibronectin than fibroblasts derived from wild-type mice. However, based on the function of PLOD2 and the fact that it is highly induced in OA synovium, PLOD2 is an appealing target for study regarding its potential interference with synovial fibrosis. Hyaluronan, polysulphated glycosaminoglycan, parathyroid hormone and Stanozolol were reported to be protective against OA-related fibrosis (Table 1) [18–22]. However, one proposed mechanism is by induction of TIEG-1, which is upregulated via the TrkA signalling receptors for CTGF [54, 55]. In the past, OA was considered a disease of the cartilage only. Therefore it is better not inhibited in an OA joint unless it is specifically blocked in the synovium to prevent fibrosis, which is unfortunately not yet possible. However, in unilateral urethral obstruction–induced fibrosis, there was no difference in the degree of interstitial fibrosis detected between wild-type and TIMP-1–deficient mice . METHODS: The authors used microarray messenger RNA expression profiling of synovial fibroblasts … Boldt JG Munzinger UK Zanetti M Hodler J. Haraoui B Pelletier JP Cloutier JM Faure MP Martel-Pelletier J. Oehler S Neureiter D Meyer-Scholten C Aigner T. Bastiaansen-Jenniskens YM Wei W Feijt Cet al. Circular RNAs in osteoarthritis: indispensable regulators and novel strategies in clinical implications. For Permissions, please email: email@example.com. The most abundant cells in the synovium are fibroblasts (SF). Excessive mechanical loading might contribute to OA pathogenesis. When synovial tissue is affected by fibrosis, which is often the case in OA, it becomes thicker and more rigid . Pros and cons of inhibiting CTGF, PLOD2 or TIMP-1 for the synovium and cartilage. Beyer C Zenzmaier C Palumbo-Zerr Ket al. Multiple studies have shown that the synovia of patients suffering from early or advanced OA have some form of pathology [7–10]. This elevation suggests that PLOD2 may be crucial in OA-related synovial fibrosis. 2015;54(11):1954–1963. The majority of these profibrotic factors are either downstream of TGF-β or modulate TGF-β signalling. Because ALK5 signals via both Smad2 and Smad3, which can potentially have different effects, their individual roles in fibrosis have been investigated, most frequently in epithelial cells. Peduto L Reuter VE Sehara-Fujisawa Aet al. TIMP-1 is an inhibitor of the MMPs—peptidases involved in ECM degradation—and is found to be elevated in a number of fibrotic diseases, for example, pulmonary, liver and kidney fibrosis [64–66]. It shows a number of peculiarities that makes it different from other membranes in our body, while several lines of evidence suggest that synovial fibroblasts, also termed fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) critically contribute to these peculiarities. Nature Reviews Rheumatology. Synovial fibroblasts are found in the lining as well as in the sublining layer of the synovium. | Because, no data are available about the interaction between TGF-β and CTGF in the synovium, we will discuss what is in our opinion the best alternative data: that for cellular signalling responses in fibroblasts in other tissues.

The underlying mechanisms that cause OA are still not totally unravelled, and (apart from joint replacement) no cure is available. ADAM12 is primarily involved in cell adhesion and fusion, ECM restructuring and cell signalling. This confirms the observation by Oehler et al..  that in early OA more inflammation was present, whereas in late-stage OA more fibrosis was observed. Although dividing synoviopathy into different subtypes may help in grouping OA patients and/or disease progression, we have to keep in mind that the observation of synovial fibrosis at different time points is patient and site dependent. Methods The authors used microarray messenger RNA expression profiling of … In this sense, blockade of mediators produced by neighbouring joint cells, such as synovial … Whether inhibition of ALK1 in an OA joint has pro- or antifibrotic effects remains to be elucidated. Please check for further notifications by email. This stabilization might be accomplished by suppressing the association of TβRII with Smad7, thus preventing degradation of the receptor complex by Smad7 [81, 82]. Therefore, it is important to identify targets downstream of TGF-β that drive fibrosis in order to minimize unwanted side effects. The human primary synovial fibroblasts (SFs) were obtained from human OA … Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. In this review, we summarize and discuss recent research that highlights the role of synovial fibroblasts in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Our goal was to characterize the inflammatory and metabolomic profile of the synovial fluid from osteoarthritic patients and to identify its modulatory effect on synovial fluid cells. NLRP1 and NLRP3 inflammasomes mediate LPS/ATP‑induced pyroptosis in knee osteoarthritis. doi: 10.1016/j.joca.2012.10.002. This is an unmet need, because OA is the most common joint disease and one of the most important causes of disability in the elderly . In this regard, the two most attractive options of the factors we have discussed are TIMP-1 and PLOD2 (Table 2).

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA) are common rheumatic disorders that primarily involve joints. synovial fibroblast cross-talk, was enhanced by the obesity-related adipokine leptin. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) was added to the list, because this is a well-known fibrotic factor that has also been shown to induce synovial fibrosis. To identify these downstream targets of TGF-β for fibrosis therapy, one should first understand how TGF-β signals in fibrosis. | Factors found to be protective against OA-related fibrosis. From this list, PLOD2, TIMP-1 and mTOR have also been shown to be elevated in experimental OA models [12, 16]. -. SF, synovial fibroblast; OASF, osteoarthritis SF; RASF, rheumatoid arthritis SF; Control, blank serum. Funding: No specific funding was received from any funding bodies in the public, commercial or not-for-profit sectors to carry out the work described in this manuscript. To validate CTGF as a potential antifibrotic target, it is important to determine whether CTGF is necessary for the persistence of TGF-β-induced synovial fibrosis, especially since a CTGF blocking antibody (FG-3019) is available. Furthermore, it may also influence the CNS and endocrine function in man . The functional states of synovial fibroblasts are heterogeneous, and the detailed transition process of their functional … Therefore, we performed a search for synovial fibrosis OA via PubMed (limited to 2008–2015). These results indicate a more anti-fibrotic role for ALK1, which is in contrast to the studies mentioned above. Unfortunately, blocking ALK5 may not be without any consequences for the cartilage, because blocking ALK5 has been shown to promote MMP13 expression and diminish type II collagen expression in chondrocytes [90, 91]. Osteoarthritis (OA) affects the integrity of the entire joint including the synovium. The PGF2α isoforms 8-iso-PGF2α and 15-keto-dihydro-PGF2α were found to be significantly increased in the SF of patients with OA . We treated N-SF and OA-SF with or without mechanical loading for 48h after … In addition, CTGF is expressed in wound healing, vascular diseases and fibrosis [47–49]. Butterfield NC, Curry KF, Steinberg J, Dewhurst H, Komla-Ebri D, Mannan NS, Adoum AT, Leitch VD, Logan JG, Waung JA, Ghirardello E, Southam L, Youlten SE, Wilkinson JM, McAninch EA, Vancollie VE, Kussy F, White JK, Lelliott CJ, Adams DJ, Jacques R, Bianco AC, Boyde A, Zeggini E, Croucher PI, Williams GR, Bassett JHD. . This study was undertaken to analyse the transcriptome of OASFs as compared to RASFs and healthy synovial fibroblasts (HSFs). Methods: Synovial tissue samples were obtained from 10 patients with knee pain, normal radiographs, and arthroscopic manifestations of OA (early OA), and from 15 patients with OA undergoing knee joint arthroplasty (late OA). Rheumatology. Ideally, to prevent fibrosis, one would like to block TGF-β, the top of the fibrotic cascade. Inhibition of TIMP-1 is expected to result in higher MMP activity and therefore more ECM breakdown, which might be beneficial in diminishing fibrosis. (a) Representative synovial tissues stained with…, NLM van der Slot AJ Zuurmond AM van den Bogaerdt AJet al. The proposed mechanism by which ADAM12 induces its profibrotic effects is by positively regulating TGF-β signalling, due to stabilization of the TβRII protein . PLOD2 is a collagen cross-linking enzyme, which activity induces the formation of pyrodinoline cross-links . doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(14)60802-3. -, Remst D. F., Blaney Davidson E. N., van der Kraan P. M. Unravelling osteoarthritis-related synovial fibrosis: a step closer to solving joint stiffness. This study suggests that obesity enhances the cross-talk between chondrocytes and synovial fibroblasts via raised levels of the pro-inflammatory adipokine leptin, leading to greater production of IL-6 in OA patients. Where others have demonstrated that only the combination of TGF-β and CTGF leads to persistent fibrosis, we have previously published that overexpression of TGF-β alone causes persistent synovial fibrosis, whereas CTGF alone in the murine knee joint causes only transient synovial fibrosis [27, 28, 57, 58]. Epub 2020 Jul 1. . 2020 Dec 7;2020:6971503. doi: 10.1155/2020/6971503. GSDMD silencing can significantly reduce both gene and protein levels of fibrogenic markers transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β), procollagen-lysine, 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase2 (PLOD2), collagen type I α1 chain (COL1A1), and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP1). Osteoarthritis; Synovial fibroblast; Cytokine; Phorbol ester; Human endothelial cells in blood vessels, were demonstrated to ex- press PTHrP by immunohistochemistry . The aim of the study was to gain insight into how these factors contribute to the fibrotic process and to determine the best targets for therapy in synovial fibrosis.
