Our earlier studies proposed a radically new idea suggesting interdependency between TNF-α/TNFR1 and IL-1β/IL-1R pathways in modulation of Staphylococcus aureus-induced CXCL8/CXCR1 axis. However, the effects of inhibition of cytokine receptor mobilization at intracellular level and surface TNFR1 and IL-1R shedding on S. aureus-induced CXCR1 expression have not been studied so far in peritoneal macrophages. This study aimed to investigate the role of inhibition of receptor mobilization from the intracellular pool (using brefeldin A) and surface receptor shedding (using TAPI-1) on CXCR1 expression during dual receptor (TNFR1 plus IL-1R) neutralization in peritoneal macrophages isolated from wild-type Swiss Albino mice. Release of superoxide anion, nitric oxide, and hydrogen peroxide was measured and cytokine production was done by ELISA. Expression of surface receptors (TNFR1, IL-1R, and CXCR1) and inflammatory mediators was studied by Western blot. It was observed that S. aureus-infected macrophages showed elevated ROS production, secretion of TNF-α, IL-1β, and CXCL8, along with increased expression of surface receptors (TNFR1, IL-1R, and CXCR1), and inflammatory markers (iNOS and COX-2) compared with control or treated groups (p < 0.05). However, prior treatment of macrophages with BFA or TAPI-1 in the presence of anti-TNFR1 antibody and IRAP during S. aureus infection showed significant reduction of all these parameters (p < 0.05). We can conclude that targeting of TNFR1 and IL-1R (with major focus on surface expression study) either through blockage of intracellular receptor trafficking pathway or via surface receptor shedding diminishes TNFR1/IL-1R interaction and consequently downregulates CXCR1 expression along with inflammatory signalling pathways during bacterial infections. © 2019, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
