Abstract have been to reduce incidence of disease that been ascribed part to increased expression activity of vasoprotective endothelial synthase (NOS Some reports shown that level of of this enzyme can upregulated by The current investigates the mechanism of NOS III in human EA.hy 926 Incubation of 926 cells 17β-estradiol or more stable estradiol enhanced III mRNA protein expression to 1.8-fold, changing the of the III mRNA. was no of NOS mRNA after of EA.hy cells with progesterone, or or when estradiol was together with estrogen antagonist indicating a estrogenic response. run-on assays that the in NOS mRNA is result of estrogen-induced enhancement NOS III transcription. In transfection experiments a 1.6 human NOS promoter fragment contains no fide estrogen-responsive ERE), basal activity was 1.7-fold by estradiol. In mobility shift nuclear extracts estrogen-incubated EA.hy cells showed enhanced binding either for ERE-like motif the human III promoter for transcription GATA. However, of transcription Sp1 (which essential for activity of human NOS promoter) was enhanced by These data that the stimulation of NOS III could be in part an increased of transcription Sp1.


differences in incidence of heart disease well established. incidence of heart disease relatively low premenopausal women increases sharply the occurrence menopause. 1 The beneficial of estrogens replacement therapy postmenopausal women 4 and increased risk coronary heart in young oophorectomized women support a role for as cardioprotective (for review Reference 6 ). Part this effect result from estrogen-mediated enhancement the activity expression of nitric oxide (NOS III eNOS). NO by this enzyme is in blood regulation 7 and exerts effects in cardiovascular system as inhibition platelet aggregation adhesion, prevention leukocyte adhesion the vascular and reduction vascular smooth proliferation (for see References through 11 10 11 Decreased endothelial production has seen in conditions such atherosclerosis, diabetes, hypertension (for see Reference 12 ).

In recent in vivo has been for acute effects of leading to endothelium-mediated vasodilatation NO release. 14 15 studies in long-term treatment estrogens was either indicate vascular NOS or increased of endothelial 16 17 addition, there more direct indicating that can upregulate expression of III mRNA protein. In pigs, near-term and treatment estradiol (but progesterone) increased NOS activity various tissues. and estradiol also enhanced III mRNA skeletal muscle, an induction the enzyme. 19 An in NOS mRNA has been seen the aortas pregnant or but not or testosterone-treated, 20 It been technically to reproduce in vivo ex vivo in cell models, which a prerequisite studying the mechanism or Hayashi et 21 and et al demonstrated an in NOS protein in umbilical vein human aortic cells, respectively, the mechanism this upregulation unclear. A study on endothelial cells that 17α-ethinyl did not the expression NOS III that it the release bioactive NO inhibiting superoxide production. 23

the current we demonstrate 17α-ethinyl estradiol 17β-estradiol enhance III mRNA protein expression, other steroid do not. increased NOS expression results an increased III promoter with unchanged stability. Nuclear from estrogen-treated 926 cells enhanced binding of the factor Sp1 activity is for NOS transcription.

RT-generated encoding for NOS III amplified using Oligonucleotide primers NOS III GACATTGAGAGCAAAGGGCTGC (sense) CGGCTTGTCACCTCCTGG (antisense), to positions to 3133 3518 to of the NOS III 27 PCR performed in 100 μL containing 1× polymerase buffer 0.2 mmol/L 1.5 mmol/L 2, 2 Taq polymerase, pmol oligonucleotide and RT (1/10 of RT reaction). an initial step at for 5 30 cycles performed (1 at 95°C, minute at and 1 at 72°C) by a 10-minute extension at 72°C. PCR products μL) were on a agarose gel 0.1 μg/mL bromide. The cDNA fragments bp) were into the RV site pCR-Script (Stratagene) the Sure Ligation Kit generating the clone pCR-NOS DNA sequences the cloned product were from plasmid with the Sequencing Kit using the chain termination

Cloning of 5′-Flanking Region the Human III Gene

DNA was from human 926 cells RNase/proteinase digestion phenol/chloroform extraction described previously. This DNA used for of the DNA of human NOS gene. The was performed described above the following as primers: (5′) and (3′). The were based published 5′-flanking of the NOS III 29 The DNA fragment bp, positions to +20) cloned into Sma I of pUC generating pUC-NOS The DNA of the PCR products determined using T7 Sequencing (Pharmacia). The NOS III sequence was inserted into luciferase gene–containing pGI2-Basic (Promega) pNOS III-Hu-Luc.

RNase Analyses

RNase assays were with a of RNase and RNase according to manufacturer’s instructions Mannheim). Briefly, denaturation, 20 of total (prepared as above) was with 200 cpm–labeled NOS antisense RNA and 20 cpm–labeled β-actin RNA probe 51°C for hours in volume of μL hybridization (40 mmol/L pH 6.7, mmol/L EDTA, mmol/L NaCl, formamide). Then mixture was by adding μL digestion (10 mmol/L pH 7.4, mmol/L NaCl, 5 mmol/L containing 3.5 RNase A 37.5 U T1, for minutes at The reaction stopped by K digestion μg/sample in μL of mmol/L Tris/HCl, 7.4, 7.15 EDTA, 2.85% 15 minutes 37°C) and extraction. The products were by ethanol and analyzed electrophoresis on urea-polyacrylamide gels mol/L urea, polyacrylamide). The buffer was TBE (89 Tris, pH 89 mmol/L acid, and mmol/L EDTA). gels were for 1 2 hours, and exposed x-ray film. protected RNA of NOS and β-actin 280 and nt, respectively. analyses were using a (Bio-Rad). The NOS III were normalized the protected bands (NOS minus tRNA minus tRNA

Transient Transfection ECV304 Cells Luciferase/β-Galactosidase Assays

endothelial cells were plated 60-mm cell dishes at 24 hours transfection. The (approximately 80% were transfected lipofection with according the recommendations (Boehringer using 5 of pNOS or pGI2-Basic and 5 of pCH110 containing the gene under control of SV40 promoter/enhancer) normalization. ECV304 were used of EA.hy cells because efficiency was with EA.hy cells. The were washed culture medium hours after and incubated 17α-ethinyl estradiol or 100 24 hours transfection. Extracts μL) were 18 hours using the lysis buffer The luciferase- β-galactosidase activities the extracts determined using Luciferase Assay (Promega) and Galacto-Light System as described. The light (LU) of luciferase assay normalized by LU of β-galactosidase assay subtraction of background; (LU minus background)/(LU minus background)×100.

Nuclear Run-On and Hybridization De Novo RNA

Nuclear assays were as described. Briefly, EA.hy cells incubated or without were scraped the cell plates with rubber “policeman,” by centrifugation g . 10 minutes) washed twice ice-cold phosphate-buffered The cell (1×10 6 3×10 6 was resuspended 1 mL lysis buffer mmol/L Tris/HCl, 7.4, 10 NaCl, 3 MgCl 2, [vol/vol] NP40), on ice 5 minutes, centrifuged at g for minutes.

NOS III Preparation and Blotting

Protein and Western was done previously described. Briefly, EA.hy cells (untreated incubated for hours with estradiol, 10 100 nmol/L) homogenized on CHAPS (3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfate, concentration 20 was added, the homogenates incubated for minutes at Then the were centrifuged 100 000 for 1 and the (combined cytosolic solubilized particulate were separated SDS–polyacrylamide gel (SDS/PAGE, 7.5% The proteins transferred to membranes (Schleicher by electroblotting All subsequent were performed room temperature. were blocked 60 minutes 3 g/100 bovine serum and 50 mL Tween-20 TBS (10 Tris/HCl, pH 150 mmol/L They were incubated for minutes at temperature with polyclonal anti–NOS antibody (Transduction 1:500, and monoclonal anti–β-tubulin (Sigma) 1:500, TBS containing g/100 mL and 50 mL Tween-20. were washed TBS/gelatin/Tween, and proteins were with NBT/X-phosphate tetrazolium chloride/5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-phosphate) a 60-minute with appropriate antibodies conjugated alkaline phosphatase. Densitometric analyses performed with Video-Imager (BioRad). III protein were normalized the respective protein bands III minus minus background)×100.
