Porphyromonas gingivalis LPS
Periodontitis is associated with development of diabetes mellitus. Although lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg), a major pathogen of periodontitis, may lead the progression of diabetes complications, the precise mechanisms are unclear. We, therefore, investigated the effects of β-carotene on production of Pg LPS-induced inflammatory cytokines in human monocytes cultured high glucose (HG) condition. THP-1 cells were cultured under 5.5 mM or 25 mM glucose conditions, and cells were stimulated with Pg LPS. To investigate the productivity of TNF-α, IL-6 and MCP-1, cell supernatants were collected for ELISA. To examine the effects of NF-kB signals on cytokine production, Bay11-7082 was used. HG enhanced Pg LPS-induced production of TNF-α, IL-6 and MCP-1 via NF-kB signals in THP-1. β-carotene suppressed the enhancement of the Pg LPS-induced cytokine production in THP-1 via NF-κB inactivation. Our results suggest that β-carotene might be a potential anti-inflammatory nutrient for circulating Pg LPS-mediated cytokine production in diabetic patients with periodontitis.
