Abstract

Previously, we reported that smokeless tobacco users have significantly higher levels of immunoglobulin A and J chain in whole saliva than non-tobacco users. Because there was no difference in levels of secretory component between the two groups, the proportion of secretory component/immunoglobulin A was significantly lower in users than non-users. There was no significant difference in antibody function. In the present study, we examined immunoglobulin A from whole saliva of users and non-users to determine the effect of smokeless tobacco on the ability of secretory component to bind to immunoglobulin A containing J chain. Whole saliva was passed over an affinity chromatography filter unit coupled with anti-α heavy chain-specific antibody followed by passage over a molecular sieve high-performance liquid chromatography column. Peaks were collected and examined for immunoglobulin A, J chain and secretory component by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Saliva from users had three significantly larger peaks (3-4 fold) at 280 nm than non-users, confirming the presence of a higher concentration of immunoglobulin A in users. The secretory component/J chain and secretory component/immunoglobulin A ratios for the largest peak were significantly less in users. This indicates that smokeless tobacco has an effect on the ability of secretory component to bind to immunoglobulin A without a loss in antibody function. This may occur either prior to immunoglobulin A/J chain binding to secretory component receptors on secretory epithelial cells or internal to the epithelial cells. These studies provide further evidence for the role of secretory component in mucosal immunity.
