) WT MRMs have been maintained on several stiffness collagen-coated (ten lg/mL) polyacrylamide gels (0.5 and 8 kPa) with 1000 ng/mL PgLPS for 48 h, then immunostained with anti-CD36 and TRPV4 IgG. Representative immunofluorescence photos from 3 independent experiments are shown (original magnification, 409).upregulation of TRPV4 protein expression and TRPV4induced Ca2+ influx in macrophages. The kinetics of Ca2+ influx in BMDMs in response to TRPV4 agonist, GSK101, was substantially more gradual than the originally reported steep kinetics for GSK101 in HeLa cells transiently transfected with TRPV4 (Jin et al. 2011). It is attainable that the differential kinetics pattern (steep vs. gradual) may possibly be associated with the origin of cells (overexpression of transfected TRPV4 in Hela cells vs. major BMDMs). Lately, Scheraga et al. showed that TRPV4 activation is needed for LPS-induced macrophage phagocytosis and stimulation of inflammatory cytokines (Scheraga et al. 2016). We discovered that matrix stiffness altered PgLPS-induced pro-atherogenic responses for example oxLDL internalization and foam cell formation within a TRPV4-dependent manner. Furthermore, we demonstratedthat PgLPS exposure to macrophages on a stiff matrix induced elevated TRPV4 Ca2+ influx activity. Collectively, our existing final results showed that TRPV4-elicited Ca2+ influx integrates PgLPS- and matrix stiffnessinduced signals to mediate macrophage oxLDL uptake and foam cell formation. In addition, our data demonstrate that TRPV4 regulates the improvement of foam cells, possibly by regulating the internalization of oxLDL, but doesn’t regulate the binding of oxLDL to the cell surface. Loss of TRPV4 function, either by genetic deletion or pharmacologic antagonism (by GSK219), abrogates PgLPS-stimulated Ca2+ influx and uptake of oxLDL by macrophages growing on a stiff substrate.
