Abstract

Previous studies show that expression of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) in endothelial cells results in decreased cyclooxygenase expression and prostaglandin (PG) levels through limiting heme availability. Regulation of PGs, important inflammatory mediators, may contribute to the anti-inflammatory potential of HO-1. Here we examine the effects of HO-1 expression on PG clearance via the prostaglandin transporter (PGT). Endothelial cells expressing human HO-1 via retroviral transfer exhibit ∼7-fold higher levels of PGT RNA and equivalently elevated uptake of [ 3H]PGE 2. The pattern and extent of uptake and the substrate inhibitory constants of PGE 2, PGF , and thromboxane B 2 are similar to those of cloned PGT. Treatment of cells with stannous chloride, an inducer of HO-1, results in increased expression of PGT while incubation of cells expressing human HO-1 with stannic mesophorphyrin, a substrate inhibitor of HO-1, decreases PG uptake. Therefore, PG clearance via PGT may contribute to the cellular regulation of PG levels by HO-1.
