PURPOSE. To evaluate the effects of TGF-β1 and doxycycline on production of gelatinase MMP-9 and activation of Smad, c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK), and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways in human corneal epithelial cells. METHODS. Primary human corneal epithelial cells were cultured to confluence. The cells were treated with different concentrations of TGF-/31 (0.1, 1, or 10 ng/mL), with or without TGF-β1-neutralizing mAb (5 μg/mL), SP600125 (30 μM), PD98059 (40 μM), SB202190 (20 μM), or doxycycline (5-40 μg/mL) for different lengths of time. Conditioned media were collected from cultures treated for 24 to 48 hours to evaluate the MMP-9 production by zymography and activity assay. Total RNA was isolated from cells treated for 6 to 24 hours to evaluate MMP-9 expression by semiquantitative RT-PCR and Northern hybridization. Cells treated for 5 to 60 minutes were lysed in RIPA buffer for Western blot with phospho-specific antibodies against Smad2, JNK1/2, ERK1/2, or p38. RESULTS. TGF-β1 increased expression, production, and activity of MMP-9 by human corneal epithelial cells in a concentration-dependent fashion. TGF-β1 also induced activation of Smad2, JNK1/2, ERK1/2, and p38 within 5 to 15 minutes, with peak activation at 15 to 60 minutes. Doxycycline markedly inhibited the TGF-β1-induced production of MMP-9 and activation of the Smad, JNK1/2, ERK1/2, and p38 signaling pathways. Its inhibitory effects were of a magnitude similar to SP600125, PD98059, and SB202190, specific inhibitors of the JNK1/2, ERK1/2, and p38 pathways, respectively. CONCLUSIONS. These findings demonstrated that doxycycline inhibits TGF-β1-induced MMP-9 production and activity, perhaps through the Smad and MAPK signaling pathways. These inhibitory effects may explain the reported efficacy of doxycycline in treating MMP-9-mediated ocular surface diseases.

Abstract Transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) initiates its diverse cellular responses by binding to and activating specific cell surface receptors that have intrinsic serine/threonine kinase activity. These activated TGF-β receptors stimulate the phosphorylation of receptor-regulated Smad proteins, which in turn form complexes with Smad4 that accumulate in the nucleus and regulate the transcription of target genes. TGF-β responses can be cell-type specific and are dependent on both the concentr...

Abstract The integrin β6 has been shown to promote invasion and experimental metastasis by oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). In this study, we demonstrate that the expression of β6 by oral SCC9 cells increased activation of the UPA → MMP3 → MMP9 pathway. We also demonstrate that the deposition of fibronectin and tenascin-C matrices by SCC9β6 cells and peritumor fibroblast cocultures is counter-regulated by the UPA → MMP3 → MMP9 pathway. Suppression of individual components of this pathway incr...

Background— Vulnerable plaque demonstrates intense inflammation in which macrophages secrete matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) that degrade the fibrous cap, ultimately leading to rupture, in situ thrombosis, and an associated clinical event. Thus, inhibition of MMP activity or more general suppression of vascular inflammation are attractive targets for interventions intended to reduce plaque rupture. We hypothesized that subantimicrobial doses of doxycycline (SDD) (20 mg twice daily) would benefi...

Transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) interacts with cell surface receptors to initiate a signaling cascade critical in regulating growth, differentiation, and development of many cell types. TGFβ signaling involves activation of Smad proteins which directly regulate target gene expression. Here we show that Smad proteins also regulate gene expression by using a previously unrecognized pathway involving direct interaction with protein kinase A (PKA). PKA has numerous effects on growth, differentia...

Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) proteins regulate cell function, and have key roles in development and carcinogenesis. The intracellular effectors of TGF-β signalling, the Smad proteins, are activated by receptors and translocate into the nucleus, where they regulate transcription. Although this pathway is inherently simple, combinatorial interactions in the heteromeric receptor and Smad complexes, receptor-interacting and Smad-interacting proteins, and cooperation with sequence-specific tr...

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a 21–amino-acid potent vasoconstrictor peptide that is mainly produced by vascular endothelial cells. Expression of the ET-1 gene is subject to complex regulation by numerous factors, among which transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is one of the most important. It has been widely documented that TGF-β increases ET-1 mRNA and peptide levels. We have explored the mechanism by which TGF-β upregulates ET-1 expression in endothelial cells. Transcriptional activation of the ET-...

Role of Smad4 on TGF-β–induced extracellular matrix stimulation in mesangial cells. Background The best characterized signaling pathway employed by transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is the Smad pathway; however, its role in matrix production in mesangial cells is unclear. We focused on Smad4, as Smad4 is essential for the activation of Smad-dependent target genes. Methods To investigate the function of Smad4 in extracellular matrix (ECM) production, we generated several stably transfected mes...

Previous studies have demonstrated that (at least) matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, -8, -9, -14 and -20 are expressed by human odontoblasts. Here, we analysed the expression of 19 MMPs and their specific tissue inhibitors (TIMP)-1, -2 and -3) -1, -2 and -3 in mature human odontoblasts and pulp tissue. Since MMP-20 is almost exclusively expressed by the dentin-pulp complex cells, we further analysed the effect of transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 and bone morphogenetic protein (BMPs)-2 on its ...

Abstract Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are endopeptidases that are responsible for the degradation of several components of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and some non-ECM proteins. MMPs are subdivided into 6 groups according to their structure and substrate specificity: collagenases, gelatinases, membrane-type MMPs, stromelysins, matrilizines. Collagenases are important proteolytic tools during ECM remodeling, tissue regeneration and organ development. MMPs and especially collagenases have i...

Neurotrophic keratopathy (NK) is a degenerative corneal disease produced by different factors, including infection, trauma, and neurogenesis, that lead to trigeminal nerve damage and impaired corneal sensitivity. Extensive epithelial breakdown, impaired corneal epithelial healing and corneal ulceration, stromal melting, and perforation are main NK features. The proliferation of the corneal epithelium is endogenously regulated by a balance between adrenergic cAMP-dependent and cholinergic cGMP-de...

Cigarette smoke (CS) is a major risk factor for the development of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) commonly coexists in lung cancer and COPD. CS triggers many factors including matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) production, contributing to EMT progression in the lungs. Here, how Shp2 signaling regulates the CS-induced MMP-9 production and EMT progression were investigated in mouse lungs and in pulmonary epithelial cell cultures ...
