Abstract [en]

The phenotypic profile of leucocytes in diseased and normal gingival tissue was studied in situ and in isolated gingival mononuclear cell (GMC) preparations. T-cell receptor (TcR)gamma delta + cells showed preferential localization to epithelium, both in normal and inflamed gingiva, and were present in crevicular as well as oral epithelium. In normal gingiva > or = 30% of the isolated leucocytes expressed TcR gamma delta, of which the majority were CD4- CD8-, and expressed CD45RA. The proportion of TcR gamma delta + cells in GMC from periodontitis tissue varied between 2 and 32%. In contrast to normal gingiva the majority of TcR gamma delta + cells in diseased tissue were CD8+ and expressed CD45RO. Thus expression of the CD8 antigen on gingival TcR gamma delta + cells is probably a consequence of immune activation. Numerous Langerhans' cells and keratinocytes expressing the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I-like antigen, CD1, were present within normal and inflamed gingival epithelium in close proximity to the TcR gamma delta + cells. Most CD1a+ cells were scattered within oral epithelium. CD1c+ cells were localized close to the basal layer of crevicular epithelium. No CD1b+ cells were found. TcR alpha beta + cells, CD4+ and B cells were restricted to lamina propria of periodontitis lesions. The presence of intraepithelial TcR gamma delta + cells in normal gingiva suggests that they constitute the 'first line of defence' against the potentially harmful microflora in the oral cavity. Induction of CD8 and CD45RO antigens on TcR gamma delta + cells in periodontitis tissue indicate that they play a significant role in the disease. CD1 molecules on Langerhans' cells and keratinocytes may be the restriction elements for the CD8+ TcR gamma delta + cells.

Abstract [en]

Human intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) constitute a unique cell population situated in the first line of defense of the alimentary tract. Here they are continuously exposed to a massive antigenic load of high complexity. However, different conditions prevail along the alimentary tract. In small intestine food antigens dominate whereas bacterial antigens are abundant in large intestine. The oral cavity is exposed to an enormous variety of antigens from the microflora as well as food constituents. The abundance and selective localization of lymphocytes in the surface epithelium of these challenged tissues implicate important roles for IEL in immune protection.

IEL in normal human jejunum, ileum and colon as well as in normal and chronically inflamed gingiva were studied in situ and after isolation, with regard to phenotype, ultrastructure, cytokine mRNA expression and response to T-cell mitogens. Furthermore, an isolation technique was developed which yielded highly purified, functionally active IEL and enterocytes from the same sample.

Intestinal IEL were situated in the basal part of the epithelium, often in small clusters and in close contact with adjacent lymphocytes and epithelial cells. They had an irregular shape with long processes and some had pseudopodium-like extensions penetrating the basement membrane. This indicates cell co-operation within the epithelium, as well as transmigration of IEL to underlying tissues. Freshly isolated IEL expressed several cytokines (IL-1β, IL-8, IL-2, TNF-α and IFN-γ) and in vitro activation induced expression of IL-2, IL-10, IFN-γ, TNF-α, TNF-β and TGF-β1, suggesting that IEL are involved in cell mediated cytotoxicity and suppressor cell activities.

γδ T cells showed preferential homing to the epithelium both in gingiva and in intestine. They constituted the major lymphocyte population in normal gingiva and on average 30% of IEL at all levels of the intestine. Gingival as well as intestinal γδ IEL showed preferential usage of Vδ1Vγ8, suggesting common reactivity patterns along the alimentary tract. Intestinal γδ IEL and γδ IEL in normal gingiva were CD4-CD8-. In contrast, γδ IEL in chronically inflamed gingiva were predominantly CD8+ and showed induced expression of CD45RO. This indicates that γδ IEL participate in anti-bacterial immune responses in mucosa. Intestinal and gingival γδ IEL displayed ultrastructural features of cytolytic effector cells, e.g. electron-dense cytoplasmic granules and multivesicular bodies. They also expressed cytokines indicative of cell mediated-cytolytic effector functions. γδ IEL from inflamed gingiva expressed IFN-γ, TNF-α, TGF-β1 and IL-6 mRNA while intestinal γδ IEL expressed IL-2, IFN-γ and TNF-α.

Intraepithelial αβ T cells were rare in gingiva while they constituted the major population of intestinal IEL. The phenotype of αβ IEL varied at different levels of the intestine. Thus, CD8+αβ IEL dominated in jejunum while cells with the unusual T-cell phenotype, CD4-CD8- TCR αβ+, constituted a major population of colonic IEL. CD4+ αβ IEL were equally represented, as a minor population, at all three levels of the gut. Intestinal αβ IEL had the same cytokine profile as γδ IEL. Taken together, these data suggest that αβ IEL are involved in immunoregulatory responses to luminal antigens.

IEL with thymocyte-like phenotyped (CD2+TCR/CD3-, CD1+TCR/CD3-, CD1+TCRαβ+ and CD1+TCRγδ+) were present in jejunal epithelium. Furthermore, recombination activating gene-1 (RAG-1) mRNA was expressed in CD2+TCR/CD3- and CD3+/TCR- jejunal IEL. RAG-1 was not expressed in colonic IEL. Thus, the epithelium of small intestine is a site for extrathymic T cell maturation in humans.
