Title in Portuguese
Padronização de modelo de inflamação alérgica pela exposição a picadas de mosquitos Aedes aegypti.
Keywords in Portuguese
Alérgenos
Citocinas
Inflamação
Mosquitos
Saliva
Transmissão de doenças
Abstract in Portuguese
Durante o repasto sanguíneo, fêmeas do mosquito Aedes aegypti inoculam saliva na pele de seu hospedeiro vertebrado, modulando suas funções imunológicas e facilitando a transmissão de doenças. Alguns componentes presentes na saliva de Ae. aegypti já foram descritos e caracterizados como alérgenos. No presente estudo, desenvolvemos um modelo de inflamação alérgica em camundongos expostos naturalmente às picadas de mosquitos Ae. aegypti. Nossos dados revelam que a sensibilização e posterior desafio com componentes salivares desse mosquito induz inflamação pulmonar com aumento no número de eosinófilos, células T CD4+, CD19+ e citocinas IL-4 e IL5 no lavado broncoalveolar, produção de muco e colágeno no pulmão, anticorpos IgE total e IgG1 e IgG2a específicos no soro, porém, sem alterações no padrão respiratório e reatividade das vias aéreas. Em conjunto, os resultados gerados neste trabalho confirmam o desenvolvimento de uma resposta alérgica diferente dos modelos clássicos dessa área com a presença de elementos que sugerem tanto um perfil Th1 quanto Th2 de resposta.

Abstract in English
During blood feeding, Aedes aegypti female mosquitoes inoculate saliva into the skin of their vertebrate hosts, modulating their immune functions and facilitating disease transmission. Some components presents in the saliva of Ae. aegypti have been described and characterized as allergens. In this study, we developed a model of allergic inflammation in mice naturally exposed to Ae. aegypti mosquito bites. Our data show that the sensitization and subsequent challenged with this mosquito salivary components induces lung inflammation with increased numbers of eosinophils, T CD4+ and CD19+ cells and IL-4 and IL-5 in bronchoalveolar lavage, mucus and collagen production in lung, total IgE and specific IgG1 and IgG2a antibodies in serum, but no changes in breathing pattern and in the airways reactivity. Together, the results generated in the present study confirm the development of an allergic response that is different from classic models of this area with the presence of components which suggest both Th1 and Th2 responses.
