The pathogenesis of demyelinating form of Guillain-Barre syndrome: proteo-peptidomic and immunological profiling of physiological fluids. Mol. Cell Proteomics , [+]

    Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP) - the main form of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) - is a rare and severe disorder of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) with an unknown etiology. One of the hallmarks of the AIDP pathogenesis is a significantly elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein level. In this paper CSF peptidome and proteome in AIDP were analyzed and compared with multiple sclerosis (MS) and control patients. A total protein concentration increase was shown to be due to even changes in all proteins rather than some specific response, supporting the hypothesis of protein leakage from blood through the blood-nerve barrier. The elevated CSF protein level in AIDP was complemented by activization of protein degradation and much higher peptidome diversity. Due to the studies of the acute motor axonal form, GBS as a whole is thought to be associated with autoimmune response against neurospecific molecules. Thus, in AIDP, autoantibodies against cell adhesion (CAM) proteins localized at Ranvier's nodes were suggested as possible targets in AIDP. Indeed, AIDP CSF peptidome analysis revealed CAM proteins degradation, however no reliable dependence on the corresponding autoantibodies levels was found. Proteome analysis revealed overrepresentation of Gene Ontology groups related to responses to bacteria and virus infections, which were earlier suggested as possible AIDP triggers. Immunoglobulin blood serum analysis against most common neuronal viruses did not reveal any specific pathogen; however AIDP patients were more immunopositive in average and often had polyinfections. Cytokine analysis of both AIDP CSF and blood did not show a systemic adaptive immune response or general inflammation, while innate immunity cytokines were upregulated. To supplement the widely-accepted though still unproven autoimmunity-based AIDP mechanism we propose a hypothesis of the primary PNS damaging initiated as an innate immunity-associated local inflammation following neurotropic viruses egress, while the autoantibody production might be an optional complementary secondary process.

    This report describes a new method for desorption of low-molecular weight (LMW) peptides from abundant blood proteins for use in subsequent mass spectrometry analyses. Heating of diluted blood serum to 98°C for 15min resulted in dissociation of LMW peptides from the most abundant blood proteins. Application of blood plasma/serum fractionation using magnetic beads with a functionalized surface followed by heating of the resultant fractions significantly increases the number of LMW peptides detected by MALDI-TOF MS, enhances the general reproducibility of mass spectrometry profiles and considerably increases the number of identified blood serum peptides by LC-MS/MS using an Agilent 6520 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF.

[Proteomic technologies for identification of serum potential biomarkers of autoimmune demyelinating polyneuropathies]. Bioorg. Khim. 37 (1), 36–44 [+]

    Time-of-flight MALDI mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) profiling of blood serum of patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS, 36 samples), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP, 24 samples) and practically healthy donors (HD) (35 samples) was carried out in order to identify potential biomarkers of autoimmune demyelinating polyneuropathies (ADP). To simplify the peptide-protein mixture of serum prior to MALDI-TOF-MS analysis samples were pre-fractionated on magnetic microparticles with a weak cation-exchange (MB-WCX) surface. Comparative analysis of mass spectrometric data using the classification algorithms (genetic and neural network-controlled) revealed a characteristic set of peaks, agreed change area with a high specificity and sensitivity of the differentiated mass spectrometry profiles of the blood serum of patients with DPNP and healthy donors (for GBS values of these characteristics reached 100 and 100, and for CIDP 94.1 and 100% respectively). Comparative analysis of mass spectrometric profiles of serum samples obtained from patients with GBS and CIDP, allowed to build a classification model to differentiate these diseases from each other, with a specificity of 88.9 and a sensitivity of 80%.
