Abstract

The etiology of oral lichen planus (OLP) is still not clear. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of CXC chemokine receptor 3(CXCR3) and its ligand CXC motif chemokine 10(CXCL10) in the pathogenesis of OLP. We examined the expression of CXCR3 and CXCL10 in OLP patients and healthy controls by quantitative real-time PCR, Western blotting, ELISAs, and immunohistochemistry, respectively. Moreover, we detected the effects of CXCL10/CXCR3 axis on T lymphocyte migration, proliferation and apoptosis by Transwell assays, CCK8 assays, and flow cytometry. We found that the expression of CXCR3 and CXCL10 was significantly increased in OLP patients. In addition, T lymphocyte migration rate of CXCL10 stimulation group was significantly higher than that of control and CXCR3 antagonist groups. After antagonizing CXCR3, the migration ability of T lymphocytes was significantly decreased, and regardless of whether CXCL10 was added in the upper chamber culture medium, the number of migrating cells was similar. The addition of CXCL10 stimulant could stimulate the proliferation of T lymphocytes, but there was no significant difference compared with control group. After antagonizing CXCR3, the proliferation rate of T lymphocytes was significantly reduced. However, there were no significant differences in the apoptosis rates of T lymphocytes between CXCL10 stimulation group, antagonist CXCR3 group, and control group. Due to the change of expression in CXCR3 and CXCL10, and its interaction in mediating the directional migration of peripheral blood T lymphocytes, affecting the proliferation of T lymphocytes, it suggests that CXCL10/CXCR3 axis may be related to the immune mechanism of OLP.
