Increased NaCl-induced interleukin-8 production by human bronchial epithelial cells is enhanced by the DeltaF508/W1282X mutation of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene.

A satisfactory model describing the airway surface fluid (ASF) in the airways of persons with cystic fibrosis (CF) remains to be established due to theoretical challenges to both the "Hydration Hypothesis" and the "Salt Hypothesis." Irrespective of these models, inhaled hypertonic saline is often used to facilitate clearance of inspissated secretions. Hypertonicity induces interleukin-8 (IL-8) expression, a potent chemokine for neutrophils. The objectives of this study were: (i) to determine the relative contribution of three potential cis-regulatory elements in the regulation of NaCl-induced IL-8 production in BEAS-2B human bronchial epithelial cells, (ii) to compare NaCl-induced IL-8 expression in IB3-1 bronchial epithelial cells, which have the DeltaF508/W1282X mutation of the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, with that in C38 cells, which are IB3-1 cells stably transfected with a truncated but functional CFTR gene, and (iii) to compare equal osmolar concentrations of NaCl and D-sorbitol in the induction of IL-8 in all three cell types. In human bronchial epithelial cells, binding sites for NFkappaB, AP-1, and NF-IL6 in the 5'-flanking region of the IL-8 promoter are necessary for optimal NaCl induction of IL-8. Human bronchial epithelial cells with the DeltaF508/W1282X CFTR mutation produce an exaggerated amount of basal and NaCl-induced IL-8.
