MCP-1 (monocyte chemotactic protein-1) plays a critical role in the development of heart failure that is known to involve apoptosis. How MCP-1 contributes to cell death involved in the development of heart disease is not understood. In the present Study we show that MCP-1 Causes death in cardiac myoblasts, H9c2 cells, by inducing oxidative stress which causes ER stress leading 10 autophagy via a novel zinc-finger protein, MCPIP (MCP-I-induced protein). MCPIP expression caused cell death, and knockdown of MCPIP attenuated MCP-I-induced cell death. It caused induction of iNOS (inducible NO synthase), translocation of the NADPH oxidase subunit phox47 from the cytoplasm to the membrane, production of ROS (reactive oxygen species), and induction of ER (endoplasmic reticulum) stress markers HSP40 (heat-shock protein 40), PDI (protein disulfide-isomerase), GRP78 (guanine-nucleotide-releasing protein 78) and IRE1 alpha (inositol-requiring enzyme 1 alpha). It also caused autophagy, its indicated by beclin-1 induction. cleavage of LC3 (microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3) and autophagolysosome formation, and apoptosis, its indicated by caspase 3 activation and TUNEL (terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase-mediated dUTP nick-end labelling) assay. Inhibitors of oxidative stress, including CeO(2) nanoparticles. inhibited ROS formation, ER stress, autophagy and cell death. Specific inhibitors of ER stress inhibited autophagy and cell death as did knockdown of the ER stress signalling protein IRE1. Knockdown of beclin-1 and autophagy inhibitors prevented cell death. This cell death involved caspase 2 and caspase 12, as specific inhibitors of these caspases prevented MCPIP-induced Cell death. Microarray analysis showed that MCPIP expression caused induction of a variety of genes known to be involved in cell death. MCPIP caused activation of JNK (C-Jun N-terminal kinase) and p38 and induction of p53 and PUMA (p53 up-regulated modulator of apoptosis). Taken together. these results Suggest that MCPIP induces ROS/RNS (reactive nitrogen species) production that causes ER stress which leads to autophagy and apoptosis through caspase 2/12 and IRE1 alpha-JNK/p38-p53-PUMA pathway. These results provide the first Molecular insights into the mechanism by which elevated MCP-1 levels associated with chronic inflammation may contribute to the development of heart failure.
