Neuropilin Related Pathological Conditions
Edit

Neuropilin 1 (NRP1) represents one of the two homologous neuropilins (NRP, splice variants of neuropilin 2 are the other) found in all vertebrates. It forms a transmembrane glycoprotein distributed in many human body tissues as a (co)receptor for a variety of different ligands.

1. Introduction

Neuropilins (NRPs) represent transmembrane glycoprotein receptors important for the proper functioning of diverse biological processes due to their broad tissue distribution. They are mainly involved in neuronal development and axon guidance, angiogenesis [1], immune functions [2], and, consequently, also in the regulation of several pathological processes such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases [3][4], and viral infections [5]. NRPs lack direct signalling capabilities and act as coreceptors associating with other receptors to transduce a signal, primarily through various receptor tyrosine kinases [3]. There are two NRP types, NRP1 and NRP2, that share 44% sequence identity and exhibit a common domain structure. Their extracellular regions consist of 5 domains (Figure 1): a1/a2 domain, b1/b2 domain, and c (MAM) domain. The a and b domains bind particular endogenous ligands that trigger further signalling and provoke specific intracellular effects (Figure 1). In contrast, the MAM domain was initially thought to mediate NRP oligomerisation, but it more likely participates in the positioning of domains for their interactions with partner receptors by shielding them from the membrane [6]. The extracellular region is connected through a transmembrane (TM) domain to the short intracellular PSD-95/Dlg/ZO-1 (PDZ) binding domain, which lacks catalytic activity [1][3]. The mostly identical domain composition of NRP1 and NRP2 facilitates the involvement of both coreceptors in similar biological processes, yet they are still different enough to allow for distinct biological functions [7].
Figure 1. A general structural composition of NRP1 and NRP2 domains and the main NRP-mediated biological responses. The a1/a2 domain, presented in blue circles, is homologous to CUB (for complement C1r/C1s, Uegf, Bmp1); the b1/b2 domain, presented in green squares, is homologous to blood coagulation factor V/VIII domains; and the c domain, presented as an orange ellipse is homologous to meprin, A5, and μ-phosphatase (MAM). The intracellular PDZ domain is represented as a yellow square. Endogenous ligands of the VEGF family bind to the b1/b2 domains, while SEMA3s bind to the a1/a2/b1 domains [1][3]. (a) VEGFs form a complex with NRP and VEGFR that activates signalling pathways involved in angiogenesis associated with cancer [3][8]. (b) SEMA3s form a complex with NRP and plexin to activate signalling pathways that regulate axonal guidance and the immune, respiratory, and cardiovascular system as well as tumour cell responses [3][8][9].
Extracellular domains of NRPs have defined, although not necessarily overlapping, binding sites that can accommodate various endogenous ligands and can interact with diverse receptors. NRPs are well known for their binding of class 3 semaphorins (SEMA3) [10][11] and selected members of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family [12] that evoke different biological functions (Table 1). SEMA3s represent signalling proteins of a large and diverse semaphorins family, containing SEMA3A-3G subgroups that are involved not only in the guidance of axons and neural development [13] but also play important roles in immune, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems, as well as in pathological disorders, especially in tumour vasculature [3][8]. They bind with their C-terminal region to the a1/a2 and b1 domains of NRP [3], and since their binding is not sufficient for signal transduction, NRPs need to associate with the SEMA3 main receptor Plexin to form SEMA3-NRP-Plexin complex and to transduce the signal [14][15][16][17]. The members of the SEMA3 class exhibit different preferences for binding to NRP1 and NRP2 (Table 1), which results in various, more specific biological functions.
Table 1. The main groups and subgroups of the most important endogenous ligands binding to both NRP receptors. x indicates binding to both NRPs.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) represents a family of signalling proteins involved in the development of blood vessels, including pathological angiogenesis as in cancer, vascular branching, and maturation, along with cardiovascular development [3][24]. The VEGF family consists of growth factors VEGF-A-D, as well as placenta growth factor (PlGF), parapoxvirus VEGF-E, and snake venom VEGF-F [25]. They primarily stimulate cellular responses by binding to their VEGF receptors (VEGFR). However, the binding of a VEGF to a coreceptor NRP forms a VEGF-NRP-VEGFR complex that results in enhanced VEGF signalling [24]. VEGFs bind to the b1/b2 domains of the NRP receptor, with the b1 domain being essential for the binding, while the b2 domain is required to ensure optimal binding [1]. The binding of VEGF ligands to b1 proceeds through the VEGF C-terminus sequence, containing a [R/K]XX[R/K] motif, called the C-end rule (CendR) [26]. Although the SEMA3 ligands also bind to the b1 domain, their binding site differs from one of the VEGF ligands [1]. As for SEMA3, there exists a distinct preference between NRP1 and NRP2 for different VEGF ligands (Table 1), which then perform specific endogenous tasks.
NRPs have also been identified as binding partners of other growth factors (Table 1), which demonstrates their versatility in regulating various signalling pathways. Thereby, NRPs can interact with the Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), the Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF), the Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), the Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGF-β), and their respective receptors [3][9][21]. Moreover, NRPs have been reported to act as a receptor for extracellular microRNAs (miRNAs), which facilitates their internalisation into cells resulting in several physiological and pathological conditions. Thus, miRNAs have been associated with tumour progression, epithelial to mesenchymal transformation, metastasis and disease prognosis [2].
NRPs play an essential role in angiogenesis and lymphogenesis in endothelial cells through the binding of VEGF family members. The main pathway by which NRPs promote angiogenesis is through the formation of the NRP/VEGF/VEGFR complex, in which NRPs act as co-receptors with VEGFRs and enhance VEGF-induced activation of intracellular signaling pathways that consequently influence cell adhesion, migration, and permeability during angiogenesis under both physiological and pathological conditions [27][28][29]. NRP1 is mainly expressed in vascular endothelial tissue, whereas NRP2 is mainly expressed in lymphoid epithelium [30]. Although VEGF and its receptor, VEGFR govern angiogenesis, some studies have provided evidence that NRP1 and NRP2 can also promote blood vessel growth through alternative pathways [31][32].
Class 3 of NRPs endogenous ligands semaphorins also play an important role in vascular development, mainly by inhibiting angiogenesis. The semaphorins SEMA3A, SEMA3B, SEMA3D, SEMA3E, and SEMA3F interfere with VEGF-induced angiogenesis to promote their antiangiogenic effects [33].
Due to NRPs interacting with a broad range of endogenous ligands and triggering diverse physiological as well as pathological mechanisms, the modulation of their endogenous ligand binding exhibits a high potential for drug development. Therefore, small peptide ligands mimicking endogenous ligands have already been developed. Unfortunately, they lack metabolic stability and display a low bioavailability [24]. Moreover, the inhibition with monoclonal antibodies was also pursued, but significant side effects were observed [34]. Consequently, peptidomimetics, as well as small molecules, are gaining particular interest. Despite their limited size, they can interfere with the endogenous ligands binding to NRPs and have been reported to inhibit their signalling and biological functions [24].

2. NRP Binding of Endogenous Ligands

Despite NRP2 being an equivalently important target as NRP1, the latter has been more studied and better characterised. Although NRPs bind a large set of diverse endogenous ligands, little is known about the details of individual ligand interactions with its binding domain on the NRP receptor. The most studied and explored is the binding of VEGF-A165 to the b1 domain of NRP1, which serves as a basis for developing NRP small molecule antagonists (Figure 2). Due to the high structural similarity of both receptors, some of the NRP1 antagonists are able to extend their inhibitory activity on the NRP2-related biological signalling and functions. VEGF-A165 binds to the b1 domain of NRP1 with the C-terminal CendR motif, which has a terminal arginine residue. CendR facilitates the binding into a highly conserved b1 arginine binding pocket, consisting of amino acid residues Tyr297, Trp301, Thr316, Asp320, Ser346, Thr349, Tyr353 and Trp411 that were all recognised in a mutational analysis as crucial for a high VEGF-A165 affinity. The guanidine group forms a salt bridge with Asp320, and the free carboxylate interacts through hydrogen bonds with Ser346, Thr349, and Tyr353. Tyr297 and Tyr353 also participate in cation-π interactions with the CendR arginine side chains (Figure 2) [35]. In an additional exploration of the binding site region with synthetic ligands mimicking the terminal arginine, a hydration profile was analysed, thus revealing a conserved water molecule identified as important for increasing the ligand affinity by forming a hydrogen bond network between Trp301, Glu348, and the ligands [36].
The fact that the protein ligands binding to the b1 domain of NRP1 share a common C-terminal arginine motif is also evident from the recently solved crystal structure of SARS-CoV-2 CendR bound to NRP-1 [37]. The comparison of VEGF-A165 and SARS-CoV-2 CendR revealed almost identical binding modes, which share the interactions with the same key amino acid residues Tyr297, Trp301, Thr316, Asp320, Ser346, Thr349 and Tyr353 as depicted in Figure 2b. These residues seem to contribute to the binding affinity of all CendR-containing ligands; therefore, an interruption of interactions with these residues is deemed an attractive therapeutic approach.

Hydrogen bonding and salt bridge interactions, crucial for the high affinity of the VEGF-A165 terminal arginine with its NRP1 binding pocket, are depicted as yellow and light pink dots, respectively. (b) Superposition of NRP1 crystal structure complexes with VEGF-A165 (PDB ID: 4DEQ) [38] and SARS-CoV-2 (PDB ID: 7JJC) [37] CendR terminal residues bound into the NRP1 arginine binding pocket, yielding the comparison of the ligand-binding modes. VEGF-A165-NRP-1 complex is presented in orange cartoon and SARS-CoV-2 CendR-NRP-1 complex in green cartoon. NRP1 amino acid residues, significant for forming hydrogen bonds with the terminal arginine, are depicted as sticks of corresponding colours. Hydrogen bonding and salt bridge interactions are shown as yellow and light pink dots, respectively.

3. Neuropilin-Related Pathology

3.1. Pain

Endogenous VEGF family ligands have been found instrumental in the pathophysiology of chronic pain in several diseases, including cancer, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, and diabetic complications. Although mainly involved in the development and maintenance of pain, the best-studied VEGF-A165 shows not only pro- but also anti-nociceptive effects leading to analgesia [39][40]. These effects are due to the binding of different VEGF-A165 isoforms to their VEGFR receptors. The VEGF-A165a isoform is pronociceptive and leads to pain, while VEGF-A165b is considered anti-nociceptive, and the ratio between the two isoforms represents the key factor determining the effect on sensory neurons and pain levels [40][41]. VEGF-A binds to VEGFR and the coreceptor NRP1, which associates NRP1 with pain. While VEGF-A165a binds to VEGFR and NRP1 receptors, VEGF-A165b does not contain a CendR motif and, therefore, cannot bind to the NRP1 b1 domain [39][40]. Consequently, it appears that NRP1 is only involved in the activation of the pain pathway, making the VEGF-A165a/NRP1 complex an interesting target for reducing chronic pain.

3.2. Viral Entry

NRP receptors have been found to contribute to the infectivity of many viruses by enhancing their host cell entry (Table 2). This mainly involves viruses that contain the CendR motif, through which they bind to the b1 domain of the NRP1 receptor and this promotes the host cell infection. Among them, Epstein–Barr (EBV) [42] and Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) [43][44] represent the best-studied ones. Recently, it was identified that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the causative agent of the latest COVID-19 pandemic, also contains the CendR motif, which proposed NRP1 as its additional entry point into human cells [37][45].
Table 2. NRP involvement in the entry and/or infectivity of viruses.
Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) represents the main cause of T-cell lymphoma and leukaemia. Cell-to-cell contact forms the major route of HTLV-1 infection, with NRP1 being essential for the viral entry. NRP1 is highly expressed in dendritic, T-cells, and endothelial cells, which represent the main targets of the HTLV-1 infection [43]. HTLV-1 enters host cells via a three-step process. First, the viral surface unit attaches to the heparin/heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG) on the host cell surface. Then the HSPG/virus surface complex interacts with the b1 domain of NRP1, which triggers conformational changes of the viral surface that enable its interaction with glucose transporter GLUT-1, yielding HTLV-1 fusion and cell entry [50].
Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) represents human herpesvirus 4 (HVV4) implicated in malignancies of lymphoid or epithelial origin. Glycoprotein B (gB) in the virus envelope forms a critical factor for the infection of B and epithelial cells, whereby NRP1 was demonstrated as the main attachment point of gB, facilitating viral entry and the infection of nasopharyngeal epithelial cells, while its connection to B cells remains unknown. Upon EBV binding to nasopharyngeal epithelial cells, furin cleaves gB, exposing a CendR motif that binds to NRP1 and promotes viral fusion and internalisation into host cells. Moreover, the binding of EBV to NRP1 also activates receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) signalling, which consequently promotes EBV infection of nasopharyngeal epithelial cells, but the detailed mechanism remains unknown [42]. With both viruses being highly involved in carcinogenic processes, it is assumed that they compete with endogenous VEGF ligands for the binding to NRP1 and might trigger cell signalling to promote the formation of tumour vessels in cancer tissues [51][52].

3.3. Cardiovascular Diseases

NRPs are involved in angiogenesis and cardiovascular diseases. On one hand, the knockout of NRP1 from cardiomyocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells causes cardiomyopathy, aggravated ischemia-induced heart failure, and hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia arteriovenous malformations, thus revealing its cardioprotective role [53][54]. On the other hand, NRP1 mediates the activation of human cardiac fibroblasts [55]. NRPs significantly contribute towards cardiovascular disease and the latter represent a serious comorbidity in COVID-19 patients [56][57][58][59][60].

3.4. Diabetes

The role of NRP in diabetes pathology was reviewed in 2002 by Mamluk et al. [61]. Especially after the outbreak of COVID-19 disease, NRP has been studied in more detail as a viral co-receptor and via involvement in co-morbidity [57]. Its involvement can be observed in diabetic nephropathy and the presence of NRP1 inhibitor proof-of-concept peptide compounds is of great interest [62][63]. However, the association between NRP1 and SARS-CoV-2 infection can be summarized in two of the most described scenarios [64][65].
Patients with diabetic nephropathy represent a group at higher risk for COVID-19 disease severity. NRP1 is found in the kidney, particularly in podocyte cells, where it is important for proper podocyte function, such as adhesion to extracellular matrix proteins, cytoskeletal reorganisation, and apoptosis. Its role is therefore important in diabetic nephropathy, in which it has been demonstrated that suppression of NRP1 expression may be responsible for podocyte damage and loss, leading to deterioration of renal function. It is speculated that the high expression of NRP1 in the kidney of diabetic patients facilitates the invasion of SARS-CoV-2 into this tissue, while the interaction of both processes leads to depletion of NRP1, which then exacerbates the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy.

3.5. Cancer

Cancer remains the second most common cause of death worldwide, responsible for almost 10 million deaths in 2020 alone [66]. While cancer, in most cases, takes years to develop into a life-threatening disease, it is usually discovered only after it has metastasised to other organs. Therefore, the metastatic potential of cancer cells remains one of the main prognostic factors for the overall survival of cancer patients. NRP1 overexpression in cancer cells has been associated with tumour aggressiveness, enhanced cell proliferation, and metastasis (Table 3).
Moreover, the other member of the neuropilin family, NRP2, also contributes to the cancer progression. For example, it was shown that NRP2 is expressed during macrophage differentiation, promotes efferocytosis, facilitates tumour growth [67] and promotes mobilisation [68]. In contrast, its deletion downregulates tumour-promoting genes, increases secondary necrosis within tumours and impairs apoptosis [67]. NRP2, but not NRP1, is expressed in cytokine-induced killer cells, which are responsible for the controlled apoptosis [69] of precancerous cells.
