Abstract

The impact of IFN-α secretion on disease progression was assessed by comparing phenotypic changes in the lupus-prone B6.Sle1Sle2Sle3 (B6.Sle123) strain and the parental C57BL/6 (B6) congenic partner using an adenovirus (ADV) expression vector containing a recombinant IFN-α gene cassette (IFN-ADV). A comprehensive comparison of cell lineage composition and activation in young B6 and B6.Sle123 mice revealed a variety of cellular alterations in the presence and absence of systemic IFN-α. Most IFN-α-induced phenotypes were similar in B6 and B6.Sle123 mice; however, B6.Sle123 mice uniquely exhibited increased B1 and plasma cells after IFN-α exposure, although both strains had an overall loss of mature B cells in the bone marrow, spleen and periphery. Although most of the cellular effects of IFN-α were identical in both strains, severe glomerulonephritis occurred only in B6.Sle123 mice. Mice injected with IFN-ADV showed an increase in immune complex deposition in the kidney, together with an unexpected decrease in serum anti-nuclear antibody levels. In summary, the predominant impact of systemic IFN-α in this murine model is an exacerbation of mechanisms mediating end organ damage.
