Abstract

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) represent the critical "bridge" between innate and adaptive immunity to viral pathogens. We hypothesized that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that potentially influence the expression/function of TLRs and their associated intracellular signaling molecules contribute to variations in humoral and cellular immunity to measles vaccine. We genotyped 190 randomly selected subjects (12-18 years old), previously vaccinated with two doses of measles, for known SNPs in TLR 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, and their associated intracellular signaling genes. Specific SNPs in the TLR 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, MyD88 and MD2 genes were associated with measles-specific humoral and cellular immunity. Heterozygous variants for rs3775291 (Phe412Leu) and rs5743305 (-926 bp in promoter region) of the TLR3 gene were associated with low antibody and lymphoproliferative responses (p ≤ 0.02) to measles vaccination. Heterozygous variants for rs4986790 (Gly299Asp) and rs4986791 (Ile399Thr) in the TLR4 gene demonstrated higher levels of (p ≤ 0.02) IL-4 secretion. Heterozygous variants for SNPs in TLR5 (rs5744174) and TLR6 (rs5743818) were associated with higher levels of (p ≤ 0.02) IFN-γ secretion. In addition, SNPs in MyD88 and MD2, intracellular molecules that associate with TLRs, also demonstrated associations with variations in antibody and IL-10 production (p ≤ 0.03). Thus, we identified specific SNP associations between TLRs and their associated signaling molecules that have a known role in viral immunity and variations in both humoral and cellular immunity following measles vaccination. These data contribute to understanding the immunogenetic mechanisms underlying variations in the immune response to measles vaccine.
