New Biomarkers for Inflammation or Sepsis

Variation in FCN1 affects biosynthesis of ficolin-1 and is associated with outcome of systemic inflammation

Ficolin-1 is a recognition molecule of the lectin complement pathway. The ficolin-1 gene FCN1 is polymorphic, but the functional and clinical consequences are unknown.The concentration of ficolin-1 in plasma and FCN1 polymorphisms in positions -1981 (rs2989727), -791 (rs28909068), -542 (rs10120023), -271 (rs28909976), -144 (rs10117466) and +7918 (rs1071583) were determined in 100 healthy individuals. FCN1 expression by isolated monocytes and granulocytes and ficolin-1 levels in monocyte culture supernatants were assessed in 21 FCN1-genotyped individuals. FCN1 polymorphisms were determined in a cohort of 251 patients with systemic inflammation. High ficolin-1 plasma levels were significantly associated with the minor alleles in position -542 and -144. These alleles were also significantly associated with high FCN1 mRNA expression. The level of ficolin-1 in culture supernatants was significantly higher in individuals homozygous for the minor alleles at positions -542 and -144. Homozygosity for these alleles was significantly associated with fatal outcome in patients with systemic inflammation. None of the other investigated polymorphisms were associated with FCN1 and ficolin-1 expression, concentration or disease outcome. Functional polymorphic sites in the promoter region of FCN1 regulate both the expression and synthesis of ficolin-1 and are associated with outcome in severe inflammation.

Identification of potential biomarkers by serum proteomics analysis in rats with sepsis

This study was aimed to find new biomarkers for diagnosis and prediction of prognosis of sepsis. Serum samples from nonsurvivor, survivor, and control groups were obtained at 12 h after the induction of sepsis and labeled with isobaric tags (iTRAQ) and then analyzed by two-dimensional liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry. Protein identification and quantification were obtained using mass spectrometry and the ProteinPilot software. Bioinformatics annotation was performed by searching against the PANTHER database. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were used to further confirm the protein identification and differential expression. A logistic regression was then used to screen the index set for diagnosis and prognosis of sepsis. We found that 47 proteins were preferentially elevated in septic rats (both nonsurvivors and survivors) compared with the control rats, and 28 proteins were preferentially elevated in the NS rats as compared with the S group. Several biomarkers, such as multimerin 1, ficolin 1, carboxypeptidase N (CPN2), serine protease 1, and platelet factor 4, were tightly correlated with the diagnosis of sepsis. Logistic regression analyses established multimerin 1, pro-platelet basic protein, fibrinogen-α, and fibrinogen-β for prognosis of sepsis.
