Title: Identification of peroxisome-proliferator responsive element in the mouse HSL gene

Abstract

Hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) catalyzes the rate-limiting step of lipolysis in adipose tissue. Several studies suggest that protein phosphorylation regulates the HSL enzymatic activity. On the other hand, the precise mechanism of the transcriptional regulation of the HSL gene remains to be elucidated. Here, we identified a functional peroxisome-proliferator responsive element (PPRE) in the mouse HSL promoter by reporter assay in CV-1 cells using serial deletion and point mutants of the 5'-flanking region. Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) analysis revealed that both peroxisome-proliferator activated receptor (PPAR{gamma}) and retinoid X receptor (RXR{alpha}) interacted with the region. Binding of the PPAR{gamma}/RXR{alpha} heterodimer to the PPRE sequence was also confirmed by electrophoretic mobility shift assay. These results indicate that the HSL gene is transcriptionally regulated by PPAR{gamma}/RXR{alpha} heterodimer, and suggest that a cis-acting element regulates the HSL gene expression.

  • PAI-1 is expressed and secreted by adipose tissue which may mediate the pathogenesis of obesity-associated cardiovascular complications. Evidence is presented in this report that PAI-1 is not expressed by preadipocyte, but significantly induced during 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation and the PAI-1 expression correlates with the induction of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor {gamma} (PPAR{gamma}). A peroxisome proliferator responsive element (PPRE)-like cis-element (-206TCCCCCATGCCCT-194) is identified in the mouse PAI-1 gene promoter by electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) combined with transient transfection experiments; the PPRE-like cis-element forms a specific DNA-protein complex only with adipocyte nuclear extracts, not with preadipocyte nuclear extracts; the DNA-protein complex canmore » be totally competed away by non-labeled consensus PPRE, and can be supershifted with PPAR{gamma} antibody. Mutation of this PPRE-like cis-element can abolish the transactivation of mouse PAI-1 promoter mediated by PPAR{gamma}. Specific PPAR{gamma} ligand Pioglitazone can significantly induce the PAI-1 expression, and stimulate the secretion of PAI-1 into medium.« less
  • We have previously shown that the expression of monocyte CCR2, the receptor for monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, is induced by plasma cholesterol. The present study examines the mechanisms that regulate monocyte CCR2 expression in hypercholesterolemia using a mouse model. Our data demonstrate that in the mouse, CCR2 expression in circulating monocytes is controlled by two promoters P1 and P2. The two distinct transcripts, which encode the same protein, are produced by alternative splicing in the 5'-untranslated region. Both promoters are constitutively active, but only P2 is stimulated by cholesterol. However, both promoters are repressed by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor {gamma}.
  • To gain insight into the regulation of expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) isoforms, we have determined the structural organization of the mouse PPAR {gamma} (mPPAR{gamma}) gene. This gene extends >105 kb and gives rise to two mRNAs (mPPAR{gamma}1 and mPPAR{gamma}2) that differ at their 5{prime} ends. The mPPAR{gamma}2 cDNA encodes an additional 30 amino acids N-terminal to the first ATG codon of mPPAR{gamma}1 and reveals a different 5{prime} untranslated sequence. We show that mPPAR{gamma}1 mRNA is encoded by eight exons, whereas the mPPAR{gamma}2 mRNA is encoded by seven exons. Most of the 5{prime} untranslated sequence of mPPAR{gamma}1 mRNA ismore » encoded by two exons, whereas the 5{prime} untranslated sequence of mPPAR{gamma}1 mRNA is encoded by two exons, whereas the 5{prime} untranslated sequence and the extra 30 N-terminal amino acids of mPPAR{gamma}2 are encoded by one exon, which is located between the second and third exons coding for mPPAR{gamma}1. The last six exons of mPPAR{gamma} gene code for identical sequences in mPPAR{gamma}1 and mPPAR{gamma}2 isoforms. The mPPAR{gamma}1 and mPPAR{gamma}2 isoforms are transcribed from different promoters. The mPPAR{gamma} gene has been mapped to chromosome 6 E3-F1 by in situ hybridization using a biotin-labeled probe. These results establish that at least one of the PPAR genes yields more than one protein product, similar to that encountered with retinoid X receptor and retinoic acid receptor genes. The existence of multiple PPAR isoforms transcribed from different promoters could increase in the diversity of ligand and tissue-specific transcriptional responses. 22 refs., 5 figs.« less
  • Transforming growth factor-{beta} (TGF-{beta}), a potent inducer of collagen synthesis, is implicated in pathological fibrosis. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-{gamma} (PPAR-{gamma}) is a nuclear hormone receptor that regulates adipogenesis and numerous other biological processes. Here, we demonstrate that collagen gene expression was markedly elevated in mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) lacking PPAR-{gamma} compared to heterozygous control MEFs. Treatment with the PPAR-{gamma} ligand 15d-PGJ{sub 2} failed to down-regulate collagen gene expression in PPAR-{gamma} null MEFs, whereas reconstitution of these cells with ectopic PPAR-{gamma} resulted in their normalization. Compared to control MEFs, PPAR-{gamma} null MEFs displayed elevated levels of the Type I TGF-{beta} receptor (T{beta}RI),more » and secreted more TGF-{beta}1 into the media. Furthermore, PPAR-{gamma} null MEFs showed constitutive phosphorylation of cellular Smad2 and Smad3, even in the absence of exogenous TGF-{beta}, which was abrogated by the ALK5 inhibitor SB431542. Constitutive Smad2/3 phosphorylation in PPAR-{gamma} null MEFs was associated with Smad3 binding to its cognate DNA recognition sequences, and interaction with coactivator p300 previously implicated in TGF-{beta} responses. Taken together, these results indicate that loss of PPAR-{gamma} in MEFs is associated with upregulation of collagen synthesis, and activation of intracellular Smad signal transduction, due, at least in part, to autocrine TGF-{beta} stimulation.« less
  • Mouse 8S-lipoxygenase (8-LOX) metabolizes arachidonic acid (AA) specifically to 8S-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (8S-HPETE), which will be readily reduced under physiological circumstances to 8S-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (8S-HETE), a natural agonist of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor {alpha} (PPAR{alpha}). Here, we investigated whether 8-LOX could further oxygenate AA and whether the products could activate PPARs. The purified recombinant 8-LOX converted AA exclusively to 8S-HPETE and then to (8S,15S)-dihydroperoxy-5Z,9E,11Z,13E-eicosatetraenoic acid (8S,15S-diHPETE). The k {sub cat}/K {sub m} values for 8S-HPETE and AA were 3.3 x 10{sup 3} and 2.7 x 10{sup 4} M{sup -1} s{sup -1}, respectively. 8-LOX also dioxygenated 8S-HETE and 15S-H(P)ETE specifically to the correspondingmore » 8S,15S-disubstituted derivatives. By contrast, 15-LOX-2, a human homologue of 8-LOX, produced 8S,15S-diH(P)ETE from 8S-H(P)ETE but not from AA nor 15S-H(P)ETE. 8S,15S-diHETE activated PPAR{alpha} more strongly than 8S-HETE did. The present results suggest that 8S,15S-diH(P)ETE as well as 8S-H(P)ETE would contribute to the physiological function of 8-LOX and also that 8-LOX can function as a potential 15-LOX.« less
