We have previously shown that murine resident peritoneal macrophages (PEMs) are activated in response to uptake of oligomannose-coated liposomes (OMLs), leading to production of interleukin (IL)-12. To understand the mechanism of activation of PEMs by OMLs, in the present study we investigated the role of a mannose-binding C-type lectin receptor, SIGNR1, in production of proinflammatory cytokines by PEMs, in which SIGNR1 acts as a physiological receptor for OMLs. Engagement of SIGNR1 on PEMs with an anti-SIGNR1-specific rat IgM antibody, ERTR9, induced production of IL-12 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha from PEMs, while secretion of IL-6 and IL-1beta was not detected with the same treatment. The level of phosphorylated IkappaB kinase in PEMs also increased in response to ERTR9 treatment of the cells. Treatment of PEMs with a specific nuclear factor kappa-B (NFkappaB) inhibitor, BAY11-7082, reduced ERTR9-dependent IL-12 production. Intraperitoneal treatment with BAY11-7082 also led to reduction of subsequent OML-induced IL-12 production from PEMs. These results indicate that SIGNR1-mediated intercellular signaling may induce production of cytokines such as IL-12 through NFkappaB activation.
