Early IFNβ secretion determines variable downstream IL-12p70 responses upon TLR4 activation

Abstract : The interleukine-12 (IL-12) family comprises the only heterodimeric cytokines mediating diverse functional effects. We previously reported a striking bi-modal IL-12p70 response to LPS stimulation in healthy donors. Herein, we demonstrate that IFNβ isa major upstream determinant of IL-12p70 production, which is also associated with numbers and activation of circulatingmonocytes. Integrative modelling of proteomic, genetic, epigenomic and cellular data confirmsIFNβ as key forLPS induced IL-12p70, and allowed us to compare the relative effects of each of these parameters on variable cytokine responses.Clinical relevance of ourfindings is supportedby reduced IFNβ-IL-12p70 responses in patients hospitalized with acute SARS-CoV-2infection,or chronically infected with hepatitis C (HCV).Importantly these responses are resolved after viral clearance. Our systems immunology approach definesa better understanding of IL-12p70 and IFNβ in healthy and infected persons, providing insights into howcommon genetic and epigenetic variation may impact immune responses to bacterial infection.
