Study Says - Blocking 'aP2' Protein Prevents Airway Diseases

A study led by Australian researchers has discovered a new protein called as P2 – adipocyte/macrophage fatty acid binding protein in human airway epithelial cells// that regulates the allergic airway inflammation.

The researchers had explained in their study that the adipocyte/macrophage fatty acid–binding protein aP2, which is known to regulate the uptake by fat cells of fatty acids and has been previously linked to insulin resistance in diabetes and the in the development of arteriosclerosis. They found that this protein also plays an essential role in allergic airway diseases such as asthma, offering an interesting additional link between the immune and metabolic systems. The findings of the study has appeared in online on 13th July, is to be published August issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

The "hygiene hypothesis" currently dominates thinking in the medical field about the underlying causes of asthma. The hypothesis proposes that childhood infection and environmental factors such as diet and airborne pollution contribute to a predisposition to this condition. Michael Rolph and colleagues from The Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney, now show for the first time that the protein aP2 is present in human epithelial cells lining the tubes that carry air from the windpipe to the lungs (bronchi), and that aP2 expression is significantly increased when these cells are stimulated with the molecules interleukin-4 and –13. This finding is very unexpected as aP2 has previously been considered to be a specific marker for fat cells. The group went on to show that mice lacking aP2 have a dramatic reduction in airway inflammation in a model of asthma. In addition, the infiltration into the airways of inflammatory molecules such as leukocytes and eosinophils was highly dependent on aP2 function in mice. The data emphasize the importance of lipids in the inflammatory response and contribute to the emerging theme that an overlap e
