2 2 Tropholst-meite etivtion of mrophges A Dllgi et l poptoti ells, n the seon signl is TLR tivtion. Reg-Mws overproue IL-1 ut not IL-12 n exhiit potent immunosuppressive tivity for moulting the ute inflmmtory response n limiting tissue mge. 3 6 Tissue Mws onstitute one of the most unnt popultions of inflmmtory ells in the uterus, n the numers of these ells remin reltively onstnt in the eiu throughout gesttion. 7,8 In norml pregnnies, the phenotype of uterine Mws is lolly moifie to quire type-2 phenotype, 9 11 whih my ontriute to tropholst ifferentition, support emryo implnttion n supply growth ftors to the plent. 7,8 However, lthough Mws ply importnt roles t the mternl2fetl interfe, errnt tivtion of inflmmtory pthwys in Mws n ffet tropholst survivl n funtion, 12 potentilly leing to pregnny omplitions, suh s reurrent spontneous ortion, pre-elmpsi, fetl growth restrition n intruterine infetion-ssoite preterm lor in humns. 7,8 Wheres gesttion hs long een reognize s n ntiinflmmtory Th2 onition, reent stuies emonstrte tht the proess of lstoyst implnttion requires pro-inflmmtory Th1 environment. 13,14 The trnsitory mintenne of this Th1 environment ppers to e essentil for the growth n survivl of tropholst ells, whih in turn proue lne of pro- n nti-inflmmtory ytokines tht re linke to the ontrol of leukoyte reruitment, to the regultion of inflmmtory tivity, n to the promotion of Th2 immune responses. 14 Among the numerous ytokines proue t the implnttion site, IFN- n TNF- re potent inuers of the pro-inflmmtory type-1 phenotype in tissue Mws; 15 in the ontext of the eveloping emryo, these ytokines hve oth enefiil n hrmful ttriutes. 16 Through the tivtion of the trnsription ftor signl trnsuer n tivtor of trnsription 1 (Stt1), IFN- is known to inue the expression of severl pro-inflmmtory genes in Mws, suh s the ell eth-inuing ytokine TNF- n the ell surfe reeptor lusters of ifferentition 14 n 4 (CD14 n CD4). 15 During erly pregnny, uterine nturl killer (unk) ells serete IFN-, whih plys ritil roles in the initition of enometril vsulture remoeling, in the proess of ngiogenesis t implnttion sites, n in the mintenne of eiul n plentl tissues. 16 On the other hn, inflmmtory stress in pregnnt mie inues higher levels of IFN- n TNF- synthesis y unk ells n Mws, respetively; these ytokines in turn trget uterine enothelil ells to provoke vsulr mge n plentl ishemi. 17,18 For instne, gesttionl omplitions hve een linke to elevte IFN- n/or TNF- expression in the immune-meite, erly ortion mouse moel CBA/J3DBA/2J 17,18 n in the preterm lor n elivery moel tht employs LPS-trete IL-1 knokout (KO) mie. 19,2 Moreover, s oserve uring reurrent spontneous ortion n intruterine infetion-ssoite preterm lor in humns, 7,8 errnt inflmmtory ehvior in Mws is ssoite with spontneous n enotoxin-meite ortion in roents. 21 Thus, even if pro-inflmmtory Th1 environment ppers to e require for suessful lstoyst implnttion, 13,14 the regultion of pro-inflmmtory Mw tivtion within the pregnnt uterus my e vitl to the voine of etrimentl Mw funtions, whih oul ultimtely le to plentl n fetl emise. Emryoni tropholst ells hve een propose to prtiipte intensively in this proess y prouing ftors tht moulte leukoyte funtion. 22 Reently, Mor et l. 14 propose the theory tht tropholst/immune ell intertion involves three stges. During the ttrtion step, tropholst ells serete hemokines tht n reruit immune ells to the implnttion site; uring the eution step, tropholst ells proue regultory ytokines tht moulte the ifferentition proess of immune ells; n finlly, in the response step, immune ells quire tropholst-supporting phenotype in response to signls from the lol miroenvironment. 14 However, the moleulr mehnism y whih uterine Mws re progrmme to opt Th2 phenotype in response to tropholst-erive ftors remins elusive. Mny potentil Mw progrmming ftors hve een esrie in the pregnnt humn uterus. 23,24 One ftor of interest is the pleiotropi ytokine leukemi inhiitory ftor (LIF). LIF plys n importnt role in the estlishment of pregnny y supporting eiul n plentl ifferentition n y influening reproutive trt ells, suh s leukoytes n luminl/glnulr epithelil ells. 25 The est eviene tht LIF my ply role in the regultion of Mws omes from t otine from LIF KO mie, whih present more thn hlf reue perentge of uterine Mws y ys 3 5 of pregnny. 25 The LIF KO mouse moel lso revele the entrl regultory role of LIF in enotoxi shok n host efense. Essentilly, LIF expression following enotoxi shok enhnes the expression of hepti ute-phse proteins n IL-1, whih ownregultes TNF- synthesis n relese in the liver, onferring protetion ginst enotoxemi. 26 In the uterus of pregnnt mie, LIF likely plys similr ut lol role in the protetive effet of progesterone ginst enotoxin-inue fetl emise y reuing nitri oxie levels in utero. 27 Another importnt gesttionl ftor is IL-1, whih is type-2 ytokine tht is expete to ply key role in pregnny immunotolerne through the estlishment of Th2 immune response t the mternl2fetl interfe. 28,29 IL-1 inhiits the proution of severl pro-inflmmtory ytokines, inluing TNF- in Mws n IFN- in NK ells, therey preventing the evelopment of type-1 immune retions tht re eleterious for oth the estlishment n mintenne of pregnny Thus, using the IL-1 KO mie moel to stuy LPS-inue preterm prturition, Murphy et l. 19,2 emonstrte tht in the sene of IL-1, IFN--prouing unk ells my exert ytotoxi funtions through TNF- proution n invsiveness into the plentl zone, leing to fetl emise or intruterine fetl growth restrition. 19,2 Moreover, IL-1 is note for its ilities to inhiit Mw prolifertion y tivting Stt3 33 n to suppress IFN--meite funtions of Mws y loking Stt1 tivtion. 34 In the pregnnt humn uterus, IL-1 is proue in lrge mounts y oth the synytiotropholst n the eiul Cellulr & Moleulr Immunology

However, the possile interply etween LIF, tropholst ells n IL-1 in the moultion of Mw funtionl phenotypes hs never een investigte. Using in vitro Mw n tropholst ifferentition moels tht were previously estlishe in our l, we investigte whether n how synytiotropholst-erive ftors in generl n IL-1 in prtiulr regulte the effets of IFN- on the ehvior of Mws in response to LIF stimultion n esrie the mehnism of tion of these ftors t the moleulr level.

In this set of migrtory/hemotti ssys, unifferentite GFP-THP1 ells were use to investigte whether BW/ST ells effetively regulte the hemotti responsiveness of monoytes to LIF. To hieve this im, monoytes were first ulture for 48 h in the presene n sene of IFN- n susequently ple in the upper well of trnswell migrtory hmers. As shown in Figure 3, the numer of migrtory monoytes pssing to the lower well t t548 h in the sene of tropholst ells ws 3565; this numer inrese sustntilly when the ells were ulture in the presene of BW/ST2LIF ells (19611) n inrese to greter extent when the ells were ulture with BW/ST1LIF ells (127613). In the sene of BW/ST ells, the numer of migrtory monoytes erese from 3565 to 963, whih represents erese to 24% of the ontrol, when the ells were tivte with IFN- (Figure 3). In the presene of BW/ST ells in the lower well, IFN- inhiits monoyte migrtion less effetively (Figure 3). The proportion of migrtory ells tivte y IFN- grully inreses to 66% when the ellsreoulturewithbw/st2lif ells (71613) n to 86% when the ells re oulture with BW/ST1LIF ells (19613).

However, fter 48-hour ell ulture perio, the ell motility of MDMws grully inrese in response to CM BW/ST2LIF n CM BW/ST1LIF (Figure 3). The reltive numer of motile ells, whih ws expresse s rtio of motile ells t t548 h/t5 h within the initil woun, ws etermine to e 1261 with, 2562 with CM BW/ ST2LIF n 3262 with CM BW/ST1LIF (Figure 3). MDMws exhiit low motility in the presene of IFN- (i.e., reution to 18% of the ontrol). However, the perentge of motile ells within the woun grully inreses to 62% n to 81% when the ells re ulture in the presene of ftors from BW/ST2LIF n BW/ST1LIF ells, respetively (Figure 3). Similr results were otine with TDMw ultures, for whih ftors from BW/ST1LIF ells reverse the effets of IFN- on Mw motility most effiiently (Supplementry Figure 2). Inhiition of Mw motility is meite y IFN--inue Stt1 tivtion To etermine whether Stt1 n Stt3 meite the inhiitory effets of IFN- on Mw motility, TDMws were seprtely preonitione with n CM BW/ST1LIF for 24 h n susequently pre-trete with.1% DMSO, 1 mm JAK Inh I, or 5 mm Stt3 Inh V for 3 min prior to tivtion with 5 U/ml of IFN-.

The results otine using CM BW/ST1LIF emonstrte tht s expete, ftors from BW/ST1LIF ells promote the motility of Mws immoilize y IFN-; the reltive numer of motile ells t t548 h ws fter pre-tretment with Jk Inh I. It is worth noting tht this promoting effet ws signifintly inrese in Mws pre-trete with JAK Inh I ut not with Stt3 Inh V, with respetive rtios of motile ells of n (Figure 4). Cell signling stuies inite tht the IFN--meite rrest of ell motility is meite y Stt1 tivtion, s the inution of pstt1 ut not tht of pstt3 ws effiiently impee y JAK Inh I in response to IFN- (Figure 4). Moreover, s shown in Figure 4, Stt3 tivtion is require for the mintenne of ell motility in IFN--immoilize Mws y BW/ST1LIF ftors; the Mws exhiite poor motility fter pre-tretment with Stt3 Inh V (Figure 4).

Consistent with the pro-inflmmtory role of IFN-, the trnsript level of TNF ws grully upregulte in Mws stimulte with IFN-; these levels inrese from to fter 24 h of stimultion (Figure 5, left pnel). The levels of TNF- mrna were ownregulte when the Mws were pre-trete with CM BW/ST1LIF n stimulte with IFN- ( versus.396.4) (Figure 5, left pnel). In ontrst to TNF-, the levels of IL-1 mrna were upregulte when the Mws were pre-trete with CM BW/ST1LIF; the IL-1/GAPDH rtio inrese from to (Figure 5, right pnel). Notly, this rise in IL-1 mrna expression ws mintine even fter Mw tivtion with IFN-, when the IL-1/GAPDH rtio inrese from to (Figure 5, right pnel). In response to INF-,Mw CD14 n CD4 expression were enhne y 2-fol n 3.5-fol, respetively (Figure 5). However, this rise in CD14 n CD4 expression in IFN-tivte Mws ws loke when the ells were preonitione with solule ftors from BW/ST1LIF ells (Figure 5).

14 14 Tropholst-meite etivtion of mrophges A Dllgi et l IFN- is the most potent inuer of CD4 expression in Mws, 62 n s we estlishe previously, this inution is ssoite with enhne ytotoxi funtion tht triggers roust Mwmeite estrution of tumor ells. 37 Thus, s we suggeste for TNF- n CD14, the repression of Mw CD4 expression y synytiotropholst ells oul e viewe s mehnism tht les to reue ytotoxi n ostimultory funtions of IFN--tivte Mws. Inee, reent stuies suggeste tht humn eiul Mws oul represent regultory or suppressive type of tissue Mws tht ontriute to the evelopment of pproprite mternl immune responses to the fetus uring erly pregnny. Deiul Mws spontneously proue high levels of IL IL- 1-prouing eiul Mws expresse CD14 n HLA-DR, ut these ells exhiite lower levels of the ostimultory moleules CD4 n CD86 thn peripherl loo monoytes from pregnnt n non-pregnnt women. 11 Furthermore, eiul Mws filto ifferentite into enriti ells uner the influene of IL-4 n GM-CSF. 11 Sym et l. 63 reently emonstrte tht eiul Mws re le to suppress T-ell IFN- proution. This suppression ours vi B7-H1, whih is ostimultory lign in the B7 fmily tht negtively moultes T-ell tivity y ining to the orresponing reeptor PD-1. The Fisher s group propose tht eiul Mws n lso protet fetl ells (i.e., tropholst ells) ginst the eth-inuing tivity of IFN--prouing uterine NK ells through trnsforming growth ftor et 1-epenent mehnism. 64 IFN--meite tivtion of gene trnsription ours primrily through the trnsription ftor Stt1. 15 One Stt1 is phosphorylte y Jk1 n Jk2, Stt1 homoimerizes, trnslotes to the nuleus, n tivtes the trnsription of multiple genes thtontinnifn--tivting sequene in their promoters. 65 As reporte here, IFN- signling in Mws involves Stt1 tivtion, n synytiotropholst-erive ftors, suh s IL-1, hve the ility to sustin Stt3 tivtion ut inversely repress Stt1 tivtion in response to IFN- stimultion. Our results strongly suggestthttheseinverseeffets on Stt1 n Stt3 represent moleulr mehnism tht oul ntgonize the inhiitory effets of IFN- on Mw motility vi synytiotropholst-erive ftors n IL-1. In orne with our premise, previous stuies emonstrte tht Stt1 n Stt1-inue gene prouts meite the inhiitory effets of IFN- on Mw migrtion n tht this inhiitory effet is ompletely rogte in Stt1-efiient Mws. 66 Moreover, these stuies emonstrte tht Stt3 is require to sustin Mw motility. However, Stt3 oes not oppose the effets of IFN- euse this ytokine n still suppress THP1 ell migrtion, even if the THP1 ells express high levels of tivte Stt3. 66 IL-1 n iretly inhiit Stt-epenent gene expression inue y IFN- in Mws y suppressing the tyrosine phosphoryltion of Stt1. 34 Furthermore, similr to IL-1, other immunosuppressive ytokines n growth ftors, suh s trnsforming growth ftor et 1 n peroxisome prolifertortivte reeptor gmm ligns, re lso known to promote Mw etivtion vi the suppression of IFN--inue Stt1 phosphoryltion n tivtion. 67,68 In ition to its effet on Mw motility, we lso emonstrte tht IL-1 meites the inhiitory tion of synytiotropholst ells on Mw prolifertion. These t re onsistent with previous stuy tht emonstrte tht IL-1 inhiits Mw prolifertion n tht this ntiprolifertive signl ws not ssoite with enhne poptosis. 33 Notly, se on the ft tht Stt3 is the primry meitor of the effets of IL-1, the uthors lso emonstrte tht the suppression of Mw prolifertion is Stt3-epenent event; in ontrst, Mw etivtion oul e meite vi Stt3-inepenent pthwy. 33 The fining tht monoytes n Mws re poorly motile in the presene of IFN- is in orne with previous stuies tht emonstrte tht IFN- stimultion is ssoite with reue hemotti responsiveness n motility in humn monoytes/ Mws vi the seletive n rpi inhiition of CCR2 expression. 53 For instne, CCR2 is the reeptor for CCL2, whih is hemotti hemokine tht is essentil for the trffiking n reruitment of monoytes/mws totheeiu. 8,69 The inhiition of CCR2 expression y pro-inflmmtory gents suh s IFN- hs een propose to retin Mws t sites of inflmmtion n to t s negtive feek loop for monoyte reruitment from the loo. 7 However, euse the numer of uterine Mws remins reltively onstnt throughout gesttion, irulting loo monoytes re expete to e ontinuously reruite to the eiu y oth stroml n tropholst ells in response to iverse hemotti ftors. 8,69 Moreover, Mws re expete to e motile within oth the eiu n the fetl memrnes, s they express higher levels of genes tht promote the tivtion of migrtion. 71 One of these genes enoes the nuler repressor protein gluoortioi reeptor DNA ining ftor-1 tht ntgonizes the inhiitory effet of trnsforming growth ftor et 1 on monoyte migrtion. 72 In this ontext, our results suggest tht tropholst ells oul fvor the movement of monoytes n Mws vi similr mehnism, ntgonizing the potentil loking effets of IFN- on monoyte/mw motility. In summry, we emonstrte tht tropholst-erive ftors, suh s IL-1, n inue the ifferentition of Mws into tropholst-supporting phenotype y ontrolling Mw migrtion/motility n the mgnitue of the Mw-meite immune responses tht re inue y pro-inflmmtory ytokines, prtiulrly IFN- n TNF-. Overll, our stuy supports the theory tht immune-moulting moleules expresse y tropholst ells re key plyers in the regultion of Mw inflmmtory tivity n in the promotion of regultory/suppressive phenotype in Mws. 14 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work ws supporte y grnts from the Nturl Sienes n Engineering Reserh Counil of Cn (NSERC), the Fons Quééois e l Reherhe sur l Nture et les Tehnologies (FQRNT) n the Réseu Quééois en Reproution (RQR) to CR-M AD, RD n JH-M were supporte y the RQR-CREATE sholrships progrm.
