This study aims to evaluate the target genes of gga-miR-20a-5p and the regulated immune responses in the chicken macrophage cell line, HD11, by the exosome-mediated delivery of miR-20a-5p.
Exosomes were purified from the chicken macrophage cell line HD11. Then, mimic gga-miR-20p or negative control miRNA were internalized into HD11 exosomes. HD11 cells were transfected with gga-miR-20a-5p or negative control miRNA containing exosomes. After 44 h of transfection, cells were incubated with or without 5 μg/mL poly(I:C) for 4 h. Then, expression of target genes and cytokines was evaluated by qRT-PCR.
Using a luciferase reporter assay, we identified that gga-miR-20a-5p directly targeted IFNGR2, MAPK1, MAP3K5, and MAP3K14. Moreover, the exosome-mediated delivery of gga-miR-20a-5p successfully repressed the expression of IFNGR2, MAPK1, MAP3K5, and MAP3K14 in HD11 cells. The expressions of interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs) (MX1, EIF2A, and OASL) and proinflammatory cytokines (IFNG, IL1B, and TNFA) were also downregulated by exosomal miR-20a-5p. In addition, the proliferation of HD11 cells was increased by exosomal miR-20a-5p.
The exosome-mediated delivery of gga-miR-20a-5p regulated immune responses by controlling the MAPK and apoptotic signaling pathways. Furthermore, we expected that exosomal miR-20a-5p could maintain immune homeostasis against HPAIV H5N1 infection by regulating the expression of proinflammatory cytokines and cell death.
