Abstract

Kupffer cells play an important role in sepsis-mediated liver injury. We tested the hypothesis that PKC-ζ plays a critical role in Kupffer cell apoptosis during sepsis. Sepsis was induced in rats by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP); 12 h later, livers were assayed for PKC-ζ, IKKα, IKKβ, IKKγ, NF-κB, Fas/FasL, Caspase-3, and DNA fragmentation. Kupffer cells from control rats were infected with AdPKC-ζ DN to inhibit PKC-ζ, or transfected with pCMVPKC-ζ to overexpress PKC-ζ, and then treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Cellular extracts were assayed for PKC-ζ, IKKα, IKKβ, IKKγ, NF-κB, Fas/FasL, Caspase-3, and DNA fragmentation. During sepsis, PKC-ζ localized in cells positive for the macrophage marker (F4/80). CLP upregulated PKC-ζ protein and activity, IKKβ, IKKγ, NF-κB, Fas/FasL, Caspase-3, and increased DNA fragmentation in rat livers (all p∈
