Abstract

A rainbow trout interferon (IFN) reporter system has been established by selection of a stable cell line, RTG-P1, transfected with a plasmid expressing the firefly luciferase gene under the control of the promoter for the IFN-induced gene Mx1. After 148 passages, the luciferase expression was still highly induced by polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid (poly I:C) in RTG-P1 cells. Different IFN inducers (dsRNA, viral hemorrhagic septicaemia virus or conditioned medium containing rainbow trout antiviral activity) were able to stimulate the IFN-reporter system in RTG-P1, showing that this cell line can be used to study the activation of the IFN pathway in various contexts. Pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC), an NF-kappaB inhibitor, significantly blocked poly I:C induced luciferase accumulation in RTG-P1 at intermediate doses (1-10 muM), suggesting that Mx1 induction through the IFN signalling pathway is NF-kappaB-dependent in fish. This inhibition was not observed for doses of 50 muM or higher. The RTG-P1 reporter system constitutes an interesting tool to study the induction and regulation of IFN signalling in teleost fish.
