Abstract
The gut-lung axis has been implicated as a potential therapeutic target in lung disorders. While increasing evidence suggests that gut microbiota plays a critical role in regulating host immunity and contributing to tuberculosis (TB) development and progression, the underlying mechanisms whereby gut microbiota may impact TB outcomes are not fully understood. Here, we found that broad-spectrum antibiotics treatment increased susceptibility to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) infection and modulated pulmonary inflammatory responses in mouse M. tuberculosis infection model. We then identified a commensal gut bacteria-regulated lncRNA, termed lncRNA-CGB, which was down-regulated by dysbiosis of gut microbiota during TB infection. Furthermore, we found that Bacteroides fragilis (B. fragilis) was a direct regulator of lncRNA-CGB, and oral administration of B. fragilis enhanced expression of lncRNA-CGB and promoted anti-TB immunity. Genomic knock-out of lncRNA-CGB led to reduced IFN-gamma expression and impaired anti-TB immunity, therefore leading to detrimental effects on M. tuberculosis infection. Mechanistically, lncRNA-CGB interacted with EZH2 and negatively regulated H3K27 tri-methylation (H3K27Me3) epigenetic programming, leading to enhanced IFN-gamma expression. Thus, this work not only uncovered previously unrecognized importance of gut bacteria-lncRNA-EZH2-H3K27Me3 axis in conferring immune protection against TB but also identified a potential new paradigm to develop a microbiota-based treatment against TB and potentially other diseases.
