Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) is a well-known Gram-negative opportunistic pathogen. Neutrophils play key roles for host defense against P. aeruginosa infection. In this study, we identified a metabolite derived from P. aeruginosa regulates neutrophil activities. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, we found that 2-undecanone is markedly increased in the peritoneal fluid of P. aeruginosa-infected mice. 2-Undecanone elicited the activation of neutrophils in a Gメi-phospholipase C pathway. However, 2-undecanone strongly inhibited responses to lipopolysaccharide and bactericidal activity of neutrophils against P. aeruginosa by inducing apoptosis. Our results demonstrate that 2-undecanone from P. aeruginosa limits the innate defense activity of neutrophils, suggesting that production of inhibitory metabolites is a strategy of P. aeruginosa for escaping the host immune system.
