Summary of "Caspse-11-GSDMD pathway is required for serum ferritin secretion in sepsis."

Ferritin is the major iron storage molecule of vertebrates, which can be detected in serum under numerous conditions, including inflammatory, neurodegenerative, and malignant diseases. Given this character, serum ferritin is frequently used as a biomarker in clinical settings. How the ferritin secreted to the serum has attracted much attention. Although some studies have found ferritin was mediated via the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-Golgi secretion pathway or secretory lysosomes trafficking pathway under normal conditions, the secretion pathway of ferritin under pathological conditions, especially in sepsis is not very clear. In this report, we adopt a murine sepsis model to study the secretion pathway of ferritin in sepsis. We demonstrated caspase-11-GSDMD pathway and associated pyroptosis are required for secretion of ferritin in vitro and in vivo in sepsis. Moreover, our work connects pyroptosis to serum ferritin secretion and suggests a passive release process of ferritin, enhancing our understanding of the mechanism of ferritin secretion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

An autosomal recessive disorder of lipid metabolism. It is caused by mutation of the microsomal triglyceride transfer protein that catalyzes the transport of lipids (TRIGLYCERIDES; CHOLESTEROL ESTERS; PHOSPHOLIPIDS) and is required in the secretion of BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low density lipoproteins or LDL). Features include defective intestinal lipid absorption, very low serum cholesterol level, and near absent LDL.

Serum glycoproteins participating in the host defense mechanism of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION that creates the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX. Included are glycoproteins in the various pathways of complement activation (CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; ALTERNATIVE COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; and LECTIN COMPLEMENT PATHWAY).
