Abstract

IntroductionAlthough IL-1β is believed to be crucial in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis OA, the IL-1β blockade brings no therapeutic benefit in human OA and results in OA aggravation in several animal models. We explored the role of a cytokine signaling 1 SOCS1 suppressor as a regulatory modulator of IL-1β signaling in chondrocytes.

MethodsCartilage samples were obtained from patients with knee OA and those without OA who underwent surgery for femur-neck fracture. SOCS1 expression in cartilage was assessed with immunohistochemistry. IL-1β-induced SOCS1 expression in chondrocytes was analyzed with quantitative polymerase chain reaction and immunoblot. The effect of SOCS1 on IL-1β signaling pathways and the synthesis of matrix metalloproteinases MMPs and aggrecanase-1 was investigated in SOCS1-overexpressing or -knockdown chondrocytes.

ResultsSOCS1 expression was significantly increased in OA cartilage, especially in areas of severe damage P < 0.01. IL-1β stimulated SOCS1 mRNA expression in a dose-dependent pattern P < 0.01. The IL-1β-induced production of MMP-1, MMP-3, MMP-13, and ADAMTS-4 aggrecanase-1, a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 4 was affected by SOCS1 overexpression or knockdown in both SW1353 cells and primary human articular chondrocytes all P values < 0.05. The inhibitory effects of SOCS1 were mediated by blocking p38, c-Jun N-terminal kinase JNK, and nuclear factor κB NF-κB activation, and by downregulating transforming growth factor-β-activated kinase 1 TAK1 expression.

ConclusionsOur results show that SOCS1 is induced by IL1-β in OA chondrocytes and suppresses the IL-1β-induced synthesis of matrix-degrading enzymes by inhibiting IL-1β signaling at multiple levels. It suggests that the IL-1β-inducible SOCS1 acts as a negative regulator of the IL-1β response in OA cartilage.
