Endoplasmic Reticulum Overload Remarkably, when Z α1-antitrypsin polymerizes within the endoplasmic reticulum of its cell of synthesis, it fails to induce a strong UPR. Instead, the predominant signaling response appears to be activation of NFκB through a poorly understood mechanism that has variously been termed the endoplasmic reticulum overload response or the ordered polymer response (Figure 2-3). In the liver, this ultimately can lead to cirrhosis. Z α1-antitrypsin appears also to be synthesized locally in the lung by some cell types, including bronchial and alveolar epithelial cells and macrophages.
BiP BiP ER client protein: Monomer Aggregate Unfolded protein response Ca2+ Mutant antitrypsin: Monomer Ordered polymer NFκB ER overload response Figure 2-3â•…Unfolded protein response and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) overload response. Unfolded protein response (UPR): In the resting endoplasmic reticulum, the chaperone BiP holds the stress-signaling molecules PERK, IRE1, and ATF6 inactive. When proteins misfold in the endoplasmic reticulum, they sequester BiP (purple). This enables PERK, IRE1, and ATF6 to become active and signal to the cytosol.
This effect of endoplasmic reticulum stress on CFTR also may explain previous studies that have identified impaired CFTR expression and function in the upper airway of smokers who do not have the disease. This finding had been attributed to oxidant effects alone but now might be explained equally well as a response to smoke-induced endoplasmic reticulum stress. Whether this effect contributes to the pathologic lung changes associated with smoking is unclear, but if it does so, it would provide a novel therapeutic target.
