It has been shown that angiotensin II and PMA increase the expression of proto-oncogenes (c-fos, c-myc and c-mos) in liver cells. In this study the effects of angiotensin II and PMA on c-fos transcription and mRNA stability were investigated. Using nuclear run-off transcription assays, it was observed that PMA and angiotensin II induced a rapid increase in c-fos transcription. The transcription rate of the GAPDH gene did not change, indicating that the effects were not general on gene transcription. The ability of these agents to modulate proto-oncogene mRNA stability was tested by measuring c-fos mRNA half-life. It was observed that c-fos mRNA half-life was relatively short (approximately 14-18 min) and that angiotensin II and PMA markedly stabilized mRNA, increasing its half-life (approximately 4-fold and approximately 2-fold, respectively). The protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide increased mRNA stability to a much greater extent. Our results clearly demonstrate that angiotensin II and PMA increased c-fos mRNA accumulation in liver cells through two actions: induction of c-fos gene transcription and increase in mRNA stability.
