Abstract

The interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase-1 (IRAK-1) mediates signal transduction from Toll-like/IL-1/IL-18 receptors. Though a critical protective role against Staphylococcus aureus infection has been previously attributed to myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) and IRAK-4, both also involved in TLR/IL-1/IL-18 signaling, the role of IRAK-1 is unknown. IRAK-1-deficient (IRAK-1 -/-) and wild-type mice were inoculated i.v. with 2 × 10 7 or 1 × 10 6 S. aureus per mouse to evaluate the role of IRAK-1 in S. aureus sepsis. Since IRAK-1 transduces IL-1R signals, IL-1R -/- mice were also included in experiments. IRAK-1 -/- mice are susceptible to a high dose of S. aureus compared to wild-type controls. In contrast to the high mortality and extensive weight loss seen in IL-1R-deficient mice in response to 1 × 10 6 S. aureus, IRAK-1 -/- mice are resistant to this low dose of S. aureus. Thus IRAK-1 plays an important role in the host response to staphylococcal sepsis.
