Inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-α, play important roles in transplantation and infection. The expression of these inflammatory factors can be regulated by many kinds of epigenetic regulation factors including histone methyltransferase and microRNAs, but the regulatory mechanisms and the relationship between these regulatory factors remain unclear. Our previous studies showed that inflammation-related microRNA let-7e could target Enhancer Zeste 2 (EZH2), a histone methyltransferase catalyzing histone H3K27me3, and silence of EZH2 could inhibit TNF-α expression after dengue virus infection or LPS stimulation in monocytic cell line. In further studies we found siEZH2 lead to downregulation of Arfaptin2 and ARFGAP1, two vesicular transporter that are helpful for cytokine secretion with the function in ADP-ribosylation factor (Arf)-dependent membrane traffic outside the ER-Golgi. siEZH2 can also inhibit NF kappa B pathway to downregulate TNF-α expression.
