  • B-3 exopolysaccharide is extracted from the Antarctic psychrophilic bacterium Psychrobacter sp. B-3. We have previously shown that it activates macrophages and affects their immunoregulatory activities. To determine what genes are affected during this process, we detected the genes differentially expressed in cells of RAW264.7 macrophages treated with B-3 exopolysaccharide by transcriptomic analysis. B-3 exopolysaccharide treatment caused differential expression of 420 genes, of which 178 were up-regulated and 242 were down-regulated. These genes were shown to be involved in many aspects of cell function, mainly metabolism and immunity. Genes were enriched in multiple immune-related pathways, and the most significantly enriched genes were involved in antigen processing and presentation pathways. The pathway in which differentially expressed genes were the most significantly enriched was the metabolic pathway; specifically, the expression of many metabolic enzyme genes was altered by B-3 exopolysaccharide treatment. Additionally, the genes involved in metabolisms of amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleotides, varied to certain degrees. B-3 exopolysaccharide, therefore, appears to directly affect the immune function of RAW264.7 macrophages as an immunostimulant, or to indirectly change intracellular metabolism. This is the first study to determine the effect of an Antarctic psychrophilic bacterial exopolysaccharide on RAW264.7 macrophages. Our findings provide an important reference for research into the regulation of macrophage immune function by different polysaccharides.
