Abstract [en]

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) B-cells resemble self-renewing CD5 + B-cells carrying auto/xeno-antigen-reactive B-cell receptors (BCRs) and multiple innate pattern-recognition receptors, such as Toll-like receptors and scavenger receptors. Integration of signals from BCRs with multiple surface membrane receptors determines whether the cells will be proliferating, anergic or apoptotic. To better understand the role of antigen in leukemogenesis, CLL cell lines producing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) will facilitate structural analysis of antigens and supply DNA for genetic studies. We present here a comprehensive genotypic and phenotypic characterization of available CLL and normal B-cell-derived lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) from the same individuals (n = 17). Authenticity and verification studies of CLL-patient origin were done by IGHV sequencing, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and DNA/short tandem repeat (STR) fingerprinting. Innate B-cell features, i.e. natural Ab production and CD5 receptors, were present in most CLL cell lines, but in none of the normal LCLs. This panel of immortalized CLL-derived cell lines is a valuable reference representing a renewable source of authentic Abs and DNA.

Abstract [en]

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells are considered to be derived from antigen-exposed B cells. To further explore the antigen-driven selection behind the leukemogenesis of CLL, we performed immunoglobulin (Ig) specificity screening of 7 CLL cell lines and 23 primary CLL clones from patient peripheral blood. We also included a recombinant monovalent monoclonal antibody (mAb) belonging to a subset of CLL cases with identical or semiidentical heavy chain complementarity determining region 3 (HCDR3) of the IGHV3-21 gene rearrangement. We found CLL mAb specificities against vimentin, filamin B, cofilin-1, proline-rich acidic protein 1, cardiolipin, oxidized low density lipoprotein and Streptococcus pneumoniae polysaccarides. These molecules are functionally associated with microbial infection and/or apoptotic cell removal. An antigen-driven selection would therefore imply that CLL B cell precursors are involved in the elimination and scavenging of pathogens and apoptotic cells, which could trigger the development of the disease.

The limited in vitro survival of CLL cells makes Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) immortalization of CLL cells a useful experimental model for studies on antibody-specificity screening. Considering the intricate procedure of EBV transformation of CLL cells and the many false cell lines used worldwide, we also wanted to characterize and evaluate the authentic origin of several previously established CLL cell lines and their normal lymphoblastoid counterparts. Three of the CLL cell lines tested were truly authentic (I83-E95, CLL-HG3 and CII), two had features of a biclonal Ig expression (232B4 and WaC3CD5+), one was only tentatively verified (PGA-1), whereas one cell line could not be verified (EHEB) due to lack of original patient cells for comparison. Two of the presumed normal lymphoblastoid cell lines tested were shown to be a neoplastic CLL clone. This study emphasizes the importance of proper cell line authentication and we will continue to verify additional cell lines not yet proven authentic.

In conclusion, we provide evidence for natural Ab production by CLL cells and suggest that these cells might be derived from B cell precursors involved in the innate immunity and, thus, providing a first-line-defence against pathogens and in elimination of apoptotic cells.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to elucidate B cell interaction with antigen in the two B cell proliferative disorders chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). In the first part we investigated the antigen specificity of CLL cells and characterized Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-transformed CLL cell lines with regard to phenotype and genotype. The second part consists of studies on the antigen presenting capacity of myelin protein zero (P0) specific MGUS B cells and their relation to T cells and development of polyneuropathy.

The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to elucidate B cell interaction with antigen in the two B cell proliferative disorders chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). In the first part we investigated the antigen specificity of CLL cells and characterized Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-transformed CLL cell lines with regard to phenotype and genotype. The second part consists of studies on the antigen presenting capacity of myelin protein zero (P0) specific MGUS B cells and their relation to T cells and development of polyneuropathy.

CLL cells are considered antigen experienced and different patient-derived CLL cells expressing B cell receptors (BCR) with highly homologous antigen binding sites are believed to have been selected by a common antigen at some point during the leukemogenesis. In paper I we investigated the antigen specificity of CLL-cell derived antibodies (Abs) with various IGHV gene usage and stereotyped BCR subset belonging. Identified CLL antigens included vimentin, filamin B, cofilin-1, proline rich acidic protein-1, cardiolipin, oxidized low density lipoprotein and Streptococcus pneumoniae capsular polysaccharides. Many of the CLL Abs studied displayed an oligo- or polyreactive antigen binding pattern and the identified antigens were either associated with apoptotic cells or microbial infection. This is similar to what has been described for innate natural antibodies, possibly indicating that CLL cells are derived from a natural-antibody- producing B cell population. Further characterization of CLL homology subset-2 antigen specificity showed binding to glands in human gastric mucosa corpus tissue sections for a CLL homology subset-2 Ab with HCDR3 motif-1, suggesting that this CLL subset recognize an autoantigen much like the CLL Abs tested in Paper I.

Characterization of EBV-transformed CLL and normal lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) in paper II showed that eight of the CLL cell lines were verified to be of authentic neoplastic origin. Indication for a biclonal CLL was found in two of the cell lines and two of the presumably normal LCLs turned out to represent the malignant CLL clone. For three cell lines no conclusive evidence for CLL origin could be found emphasizing the importance of verifying the identity of cell lines used in research.
