Study Description

The bone marrow is continuously occupied by high numbers of neutrophils, and a tumor-supportive bias of these cells could significantly impact bone marrow-confined malignancies. In multiple myeloma, the bone marrow is characterized by inflammatory stromal cells with the potential to influence neutrophils. Here, we investigated myeloma-associated alterations in marrow neutrophils and the impact of stromal inflammation on neutrophil function. Mature neutrophils in myeloma marrow are activated and tumor-supportive, transcribing increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including IL-1β, and myeloma cell survival factors, such as the BCMA-ligand BAFF. Neutrophils were re-activated after first-line treatment, while this regimen reduced, but did not normalize, stromal inflammation. Interactions with inflammatory stroma induced neutrophil activation, including BAFF secretion, in a STAT3-dependent manner and once activated, neutrophils gained the ability to reciprocally induce stromal activation. Combined, our data define the presence of a neutrophil-stromal cell feed-forward loop ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This depository contains data from two bulk RNA sequencing experiments: 1) Bulk RNA sequencing data of peripheral blood neutrophils from healthy donors cultured with a) human adipose-derived stromal cells (ADSC) as a model for mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC), and b) IL-1β stimulated ADSC as a model for inflammatory MSC as found in multiple myeloma (MM). 2) Bulk RNA sequencing data from ADSCs cultured a) without stimuli, b) with recombinant human IL-1β, c) with supernatant from iMSC-like ...
