BACKGROUND: A genome-wide scan in a DAxACI F2 intercross studied for collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) identified the severity quantitative trait locus Cia25 on rat chromosome 12. Cia25 co-localizes with loci regulating several forms of autoimmune diseases in rats, mice and humans, suggesting a common gene. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the effects of Cia25 on arthritis severity in congenic rats. METHODS: DA.ACI(Cia25) congenic rats were constructed according to a genotype-guided strategy, and tested for pristane-induced arthritis (PIA), and CIA induced with rat type II collagen (CII). A well- established scoring system previously shown to correlate with histologic damage, including cartilage and bone erosions, synovial hyperplasia, and synovial inflammation was used. RESULTS: The introgression of ACI alleles at Cia25 into DA background, as in DA.ACI(Cia25) rats, was enough to significantly reduce arthritis severity by 60% in PIA, and 40% in CIA, both in males and females compared with same sex DA. Levels of IgG anti-CII in male DA.ACI(Cia25) rats were 83% lower than in male DA. Levels of anti-CII in females were not affected by the congenic interval. CONCLUSIONS: Cia25 contains a gene that regulates disease severity in two distinct models of autoimmune arthritis. While both genders were protected in arthritis studies, only male congenics had a dramatic reduction in levels of anti-CII, suggesting the possibility of a second arthritis gene in this interval that operates via the regulation of autoantibodies in a sex-specific manner. The identification of the gene(s) accounting for Cia25 is anticipated to generate novel prognostic biomarkers, and targets for therapy.
