Expression of the proenkephalin gene in human neuroblastoma cell lines

, : Expression of the proenkephalin gene in human neuroblastoma cell lines. Molecular Brain Research 3(2): 147-154

Several human tumour cell lines were screened for secretion of proenkephalin-derived peptides with an antiserum directed to its N-terminus. Met-enkephalin-Arg6,Phe7 and for proopiomelanocortin-derived peptides with an antiserum to .beta.-endorphin. The neuroblastoma SK-N-MC cell line secreted Met-enkephalin-ARg6,Phe7-immunoreactive peptides in relatively high amounts into the culture medium, although processing was not complete and there was no evidence for free Met-enkephalin-Arg6,Phe7. Gene expression was confirmed by the presence of proenkephalin mRNA and proenkephalin-derived polypeptides in extracts of the SK-N-MC cells and also in the neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cell line. In the latter cells, however, the expression was approximately 3 times lower, there was less processing of proenkephalin and no evidence for secretion.

The GADD34 gene is transcriptionally induced by growth arrest and DNA damage. However, the mechanisms underlying the transcriptional regulation are still unclear. We analyzed the promoter of mouse GADD34 gene and the methylmethane sulfonate (MMS)-...
