Diabetic foot syndrome demonstrates wound chronicity due to impaired tissue perfusion in lower limbs. Previous studies showed interferon-gamma (IFN-γ), a central inflammatory mediator in diabetic foot syndrome, to induce the truncated form of tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase (mini-TrpRS) that has strong angiostatic properties. Recently we reported that mini-TrpRS signalling could be blocked in the presence of IFN-γ with D-tryptophan in vitro. Here we discuss the IFN-γ/mini-TrpRS axis in the pathology of diabetic foot syndrome and emerging therapeutic options.
