    Abstract: Background: Cyclic AMP (cAMP) signaling modulates functions of inflammatory cells involved in the pathogenesis of asthma, and type 4 cAMP-specific phosphodiesterases (PDE4s) are essential components of this pathway. Induction of the PDE4 isoform PDE4B is necessary for Toll-like receptor signaling in monocytes and macrophages and is associated with T cell receptor/CD3 in T cells; however, its exact physiological function in the development of allergic asthma remains undefined. Objectives: We investigated the role of PDE4B in the development of allergen-induced airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and T(H)2-driven inflammatory responses. Methods: Wild-type and PDE4B(-/-) mice were sensitized and challenged with ovalbumin and AHR measured in response to inhaled methacholine. Airway inflammation was characterized by analyzing leukocyte infiltration and cytokine accumulation in the airways. Ovalbumin-stimulated cell proliferation and T(H)2 cytokine production were determined in cultured bronchial lymph node cells. Results: Mice deficient in PDE4B do not develop AHR. This protective effect was associated with a significant decrease in eosinophils recruitment to the lungs and decreased T(H)2 cytokine levels in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. Defects in T-cell replication, T(H)2 cytokine production, and dendritic cell migration were evident in cells from the airway-draining lymph nodes. Conversely, accumulation of the T(H)1 cytokine IFN-gamma was not affected in PDE4B 2/2 mice. Ablation of the orthologous PDE4 gene PDE4A has no impact on airway inflammation. Conclusion: By relieving a cAMP-negative constraint, PDE4B plays an essential role in T(H)2-cell activation and dendritic cell recruitment during airway inflammation. These findings provide proof of concept that PDE4 inhibitors with PDE4B selectivity may have efficacy in asthma treatment. (J Allergy Clin Immunol 2010;126:1252-9.)
