The resolution of Shigella flexneri infection-associated hyperinflammation is crucial for host survival. Using in vitro and in vivo models of shigellosis, we found that S. flexneri induces the expression of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) through the nucleotide oligomerization domain 2 (NOD2) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling pathway. Congruently, abrogation of NOD2 or EGFR compromises the ability of S. flexneri to induce IDO1 expression. We observed that the loss of IDO1 function in vivo exacerbates shigellosis by skewing the inflammatory cytokine response, disrupting colon epithelial barrier integrity and consequently limiting the host life-span. Interestingly, administration of recombinant EGF rescued mice from IDO1 inhibition-driven aggravated shigellosis by restoring the cytokine balance and subsequently restricting bacterial growth. This is the first study that underscores the direct implication of the NOD2-EGFR axis in IDO1 production and its crucial homeostatic contributions during shigellosis. Together, these findings reveal EGF as a potential therapeutic intervention for infectious diseases.
