The administration of ex vivo culture-expanded mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) has been shown to reverse symptomatic neuroinflammation observed in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). The mechanism by which this therapeutic effect occurs remains unknown. In an effort to decipher MSC mode of action, we found that MSC conditioned medium inhibits EAE-derived CD4 T cell activation by suppressing STAT3 phosphorylation via MSC-derived CCL2. Further analysis demonstrates that the effect is dependent on MSC-driven matrix metalloproteinase proteolytic processing of CCL2 to an antagonistic derivative. We also show that antagonistic CCL2 suppresses phosphorylation of AKT and leads to a reciprocal increased phosphorylation of ERK associated with an up-regulation of B7.H1 in CD4 T cells derived from EAE mice. CD4 T cell infiltration of the spinal cord of MSC-treated group was robustly decreased along with reduced plasma levels of IL-17 and TNF-alpha levels and in vitro from restimulated splenocytes. The key role of MSC-derived CCL2 was confirmed by the observed loss of function of CCL2(-/-) MSCs in EAE mice. In summary, this is the first report of MSCs modulating EAE biology via the paracrine conversion of CCL2 from agonist to antagonist of CD4 Th17 cell function.
