Blocking heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) induces death of malignant plasma cells by activation of the unfolded protein response (UPR), a signaling pathway activated by accumulation of misfolded proteins within the endoplasmatic reticulum. We hypothesized that non-transformed plasma cells are also hypersensitive to Hsp90 inhibition owing to their high amount of protein biosynthesis. To study this, two different Hsp90 inhibitors, the geldanamycin derivative 17-DMAG or the nontoxic peptide derivative TCBL-145, were applied to mice with experimental epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, an autoimmune bullous disease characterized by autoantibodies against type VII collagen of the dermal-epidermal junction. Both inhibitors ameliorated clinical disease of type VII collagen-immunized mice, suppressed autoantibody production, and reduced dermal neutrophilic infiltrate. Interestingly, total plasma cells numbers, type VII collagen-specific plasma cells and germinal center B cells were unaffected by anti-Hsp90 treatment in vivo. However, T cell proliferation was potently inhibited, as evidenced by reduced response of isolated lymph node cells from immunized mice to in vitro re-stimulation with anti-CD3/CD28 antibody or autoantigen in presence of Hsp90 inhibitors. Our results suggest that Hsp90 blockade has no impact on normal or autoreactive plasma cells in vivo and indentify T cells as targets of anti-Hsp90 treatment in autoimmunity to type VII collagen.
