The intestinal immune system is constantly challenged by commensal bacteria; therefore, it must maintain quiescence via several regulatory mechanisms. Although intestinal macrophages (Mϕs) have been implicated in repression of excessive inflammation, it remains unclear how their functions are regulated during inflammation. In this study, we report that semaphorin 7A (Sema7A), a GPI-anchored semaphorin expressed in intestinal epithelial cells (IECs), induces IL-10 production by intestinal Mϕs to regulate intestinal inflammation. Sema7A-deficient mice showed severe signs of dextran sodium sulfate-induced colitis due to reduced intestinal IL-10 levels. We further identified CX3CR1(+)MHC class II(int)F4/80(hi)CD11b(hi) Mϕs as the main producers of IL-10 via αvβ1 integrin in response to Sema7A. Notably, Sema7A was predominantly expressed on the basolateral side of IECs, and its expression pattern was responsible for protective effects against dextran sodium sulfate-induced colitis and IL-10 production by Mϕs during interactions between IECs and Mϕs. Furthermore, we determined that the administration of recombinant Sema7A proteins ameliorated the severity of colitis, and these effects were diminished by IL-10-blocking Abs. Therefore, our findings not only indicate that Sema7A plays crucial roles in suppressing intestinal inflammation through αvβ1 integrin, but also provide a novel mode of IL-10 induction via interactions between IECs and Mϕs.
