Sammanfattning

The endogenous glycosphingolipid sulfatide is a ligand for CD1d-restricted type II natural killer T (NKT) lymphocytes. Through the action of these cells, sulfatide treatment has been shown to modulate the immune response in mouse models for autoimmune diseases, infections and tumour immunity. Sulfatide exists naturally in different organs including the pancreas, where sulfatide co-localizes with insulin within the Langerhans islet beta-cells, targets for the immune destruction in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Human T1D patients, but not patients with type 2 diabetes nor healthy individuals, have autoantibodies against sulfatide in serum, suggesting that sulfatide induces an immune response in the natural course of T1D in humans. Here, we investigate sulfatide as an autoantigen and a modulator of autoimmune disease in the murine model for T1D, the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice. We demonstrate that aged NOD mice displayed serum autoantibody reactivity to sulfatide; however, this reactivity did not correlate with onset of T1D. Repeated administration of sulfatide did not result in an increase in serum reactivity to sulfatide. Moreover, a multidose sulfatide treatment of female NOD mice initiated at an early (5weeks of age), intermediate (8weeks of age) or late (12weeks of age) phase of T1D progression did not influence the incidence of disease. Thus, we demonstrate that a fraction of NOD mice develop autoantibody reactivity to sulfatide; however, we fail to demonstrate that sulfatide treatment reduces the incidence of T1D in this mouse strain.
