Institute of Experimental Medicine CAS

The department is focused on the evaluation of toxic effects of engineered nanoparticles and combustion generated ultrafine particles in the human cell lines that originate from the surface epithelium of the respiratory tract as well as in the 3D human airway epithelia models reconstituted in vitro (MucilAirTM system). Another topic includes molecular epidemiology studies analyzing the effects of environmental pollution on human health.

The methods include various tests of cytotoxicity, the detection of reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage of DNA, proteins and lipids. Direct genotoxicity is analyzed using Comet assay and by detection of DNA adducts. Structural and numerical chromosomal aberrations are evaluated by micronucleus test and by flusorescent staining (FISH). The toxicogenomic methods are used for evaluation of the effects of nanoparticles on gene expression levels or DNA methylation changes. Analyses of protein expression and DNA repair activity are also performed. The aim of the research is to assess the toxicity of nanoparticles for biomedicine applications, and the evaluation of the potential adverse effects on human health in employees professionally exposed to nanomaterials and in the common population exposed to air pollution.

The research of the departent is further focused on the study of stem cells and thei rrole in the healing and regeneration of damaged organs and tissues.  Stem cells are isolated from various organs, propagated in tissue cultures, characterized and transferred into the site of tissue damage or inflammation. Various types of nanofiber scaffolds are used for the transfer of stem cell into the site of damage. Stem cells are used in experimental models for the treatment of severe damages of ocular surface or in attempts to treat so far incurable degenerative diseases of the retina. The final aim of these studies is recognition and characteization of mechanisms of therapeutic effects of stem cells and demonstration of their potential use for the impovement of of human life.

Important results in 2019

1. Benzo[a]pyrene is associated with dysregulated myelo-lymphoid hematopoiesis in asthmatic children

Exposure to B[a]P might contribute to concurrent suppression of pro-inflammatory (e.g. NF-κB mediated Natural Killer T cells), and activation of anti-inflammatory pathways (e.g. IL10-secreting CD8+ T cells) in the urban asthmatic children. In addition, B[a]P appears to elevate heme biosynthesis, which in turn, promotes neutrophilic metamyelocyte expansion and reduction of CD71+ erythroid cells.

2. The biological effects of complete gasoline engine emissions exposure in a 3D human airway model (MucilAirTM) and in human bronchial epithelial cells (BEAS-2B)

The aim of this study was real-time exposure of complete combustion emissions in two cell models. The models used were the BEAS-2B lung epithelial cell line and the MucilAirTM 3D lung model. To allow direct contact of combustion emissions and cells, both models were cultured on porous membranes. A unique exposure system has been created to allow real time direct expose to diluted exhaust gases. One-day and five-day repeated exposure showed higher tolerance and more realistic results in complex 3D models than commonly used lung cells.

3. Study of therapeutic potential of stem cells for the treatment of degenerative retinal diseases

Degenerative retinal diseases represent the main cause of a decreased quality of vision or even blindness. A perspective for the treatment of these so far uncurable diseases is offered by mesechymal stem cells (MSCs). We showed that MSCs are potent producers of numerous growth and trophic factors supporting survival of retinal cells, inhibit harmful inflammatory reactions in the eye and are able to differentiate into cells expressing markers and properties of retinal cells.

Important results in 2018

1. Transcriptional response to organic compounds from diverse gasoline and biogasoline fuel emissions in human lung cells

We collected and characterized gasoline exhaust particles (GEPs) produced by Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine running neat gasoline fuel (E0) and its blends with 15% ethanol (E15), 25% n-butanol (n- But25) and 25% isobutanol (i-But25). To study the toxic effects of organic compounds extracted from GEPs, we analyzed gene expression profiles in human lung BEAS-2B cells. Our results indicate that i-But25 extract possessed the weakest genotoxic potency possibly due to the low PAH content.

2. Gene expression profiling in healthy newborns from diverse localities of the Czech Republic

We analyzed whole genome expression in cord blood leukocytes of 202 newborns from the Czech Republic, differing localities and levels of air pollution. We aimed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and pathways in relation to locality. The highest number of DEGs was found in samples from Karvina. A pathway analysis revealed a deregulation of processes associated with cell growth, apoptosis or cellular homeostasis, immune response-related processes or oxidative stress response.

3. Inhalation of ZnO nanoparticles: splice junction expression and alternative splicing in mice

Biological effects of ZnO nanoparticles inhalation were investigated in mice. The inhalation affected splice junctions expression in genes participating in oxidative stress, apoptosis, immune response, inflammation and DNA repair. Further, alternative splicing in oxidative stress and inflammation-related genes was affected. In summary, ZnO nanoparticles have a potential negative effect on biological systems.

Important results in 2017

1. Ultrafine and Fine Particles and Hospital Admissions in Central Europe. Results from the UFIREG Study

We investigated effects of ultrafine and fine particulate matter on cause-specific hospital admissions in Central and Eastern European cities. We found that a 2,750 particles/cm3 increase of ultrafine particles caused an increase in the risk of respiratory hospital admissions. We also found increases in the risk of cardiovascular and respiratory admissions associated with exposure to particulate matter of aerodynamic diameter < 2.5 µm.

2. Adaptation of the human population to the environment: Current knowledge, clues from Czech cytogenetic and "omics" biomonitoring studies and possible mechanisms

The main aim of this review was to provide a comprehensive overview of the last decade of Czech biomonitoring research, concerning the effect of various levels of air pollution and radiation, on the differently exposed population groups. A detailed analysis of data leads to a hypothesis of the versatile mechanism of adaptation to environmental stressors via DNA methylation settings which may even originate in prenatal development, and help to reduce the resulting DNA damage levels.

3. Mesenchymal stem cells have been proved as a promising tool for cell-based therapy of currently uncurable degenerative diseases of the retina

Degenerative diseases of the retina represent the most common cause of decreased quality of vision or even blindness. So far, there is no treatment protocols for these disorders. We showed that mesenchymal stem cells can be differentiated into cells expressing markers of the retinal cells, possess potent immunoregulatory properties and produce numerous neuroprotective and growth factors. These properties make them a prospective cell type for the treatment of degenerative retinal disorders.

1. Urinary 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2‘-deoxyguanosine analysis by an improved ELISA: An inter-laboratory comparison study

We performed an inter-laboratory comparison of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2‘-deoxyguanosine by ELISA using standardized conditions, compared the ELISA results with high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and performed identification of compounds that may contribute to the discrepancy between methods. Assay standardization significantly improved inter-laboratory agreement, although some variability caused by aromatic and heterocyclic compounds and saccharides is still observed.

2. The impact of silica encapsulated cobalt zinc ferrite nanoparticles on DNA, lipids and proteins of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells

Cobalt-zinc-ferrite nanoparticles (NPs) encapsulated by amorphous silica were tested to assess their effect on DNA, lipids and proteins in rat mesenchymal stem cells. No significant cytotoxic effects were observed, except for the highest dose of CZF-NPs, that slowed down cell proliferation and induced damage to DNA, lipids and proteins. The results suggest that the silica-coated CZF-NPs, when applied at a non-toxic dose, represent a promising contrast agent for cell labeling for magnetic resonance analysis.

3. The effects of cytokines on immunomodulatory properties of mesenchymal stem cells

Immunoregulatory and therapeutic properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be modified by cytokines. We described that the production of immunoregulatory molecules by MSCs depends on their activation and that their secretory profile significantly modulates immunological reactions. A novel mechanism used by MSCs to inhibit production of interleukin-10 by activated B cells was characterized. Thus, MSCs can regulate harmful inflammatory reactions in dependence on the cytokine environment.

Important results in 2015

1. Day-to-day variability of toxic events induced by organic compounds bound to size segregated atmospheric aerosol

The temporal variability of size-segregated aerosol mass collected on a daily basis during the winter period in highly polluted districts of Ostrava city as well as toxic effects of organic compounds extracted from each size fraction were quantified. We revealed that upper accumulation mode fraction (0.5 < dae < 1 μm) comprises most of the aerosol mass and contained 44% of total c-PAHs while ultrafine fraction (< 0.17 μm) contained only 11% of c-PAHs. DNA adduct levels and dioxin-like activity strongly correlated with both aerosol mass and c-PAH concentrations suggesting genotoxicity as a major toxic effect of organic compounds bound to size-segregated aerosol.

2. Reduced gene expression levels after chronic exposure to high concenrations of air pollutants

We analyzed the effect of air pollution on gene expression in subjects living in Prague and in the polluted Ostrava region. We expected to observe changes in expression of DNA repair genes in subjects from the Ostrava region. Unexpectedly, the changes were found in Prague subjects, particularly in genes associated with immune response and neurodegenerative diseases. The results suggest that chronic exposure to air pollution may result in adaptation of the organism with possible negative health effects.

3. Comparative study on the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cells and tissue-specific limbal stem cells

The ability of mesenchymal stem cels (MSC) and limbal stem cells (LSC) to produce various immunoregulatory molecules and to modulate immune response was compared. The therapeutic potential of these stem cells was evaluated in the model of treatment of chemically damaged ocular surface in the rabbit. It was found that stem cells produce a number of immunoregulatory molecules and that MSC have comparable therapeutic properties as do tissue-specific LSC. These results bring the evidence that MSC can replace tissue-specific LSC in the cases when LSC are absent or difficult to obtain.
