TGF beta induces a sustained c-fos expression associated with stimulation or inhibition of cell growth in EL2 or NIH 3T3 fibroblasts


TGF beta induces a sustained c-fos expression associated with stimulation or inhibition of cell growth in EL2 or NIH 3T3 fibroblasts

We have previously indicated that epidermal growth factor (EGF) plays a fundamental role in the proliferation control of EL2 rat fibroblast line. It is shown here that transforming growth factor beta (TGF beta) stimulates both DNA synthesis and proliferation of EL2 cells, while exerting an inhibitory effect on the growth of murine NIH-3T3 fibroblasts. We also report the effect of TGF beta and EGF on c-fos expression in EL2 cells, as compared to that of TGF beta in NIH-3T3 fibroblasts. In EL2 cells EGF induces a transient c-fos expression at both mRNA and protein level, as previously observed in NIH-3T3 fibroblasts treated with platelet-derived or fibroblast growth factor (PDGF, FGF). Conversely, TGF beta induces in EL2 cells a sustained expression of fos mRNA and protein, which are still detectable at least 24 and 7 hr after treatment respectively. In NIH-3T3 fibroblasts TGF beta causes a sustained fos RNA expression, which is not associated, however, with detectable fos protein. We conclude that in fibroblasts stimulated by mitogens c-fos expression may be differentially modulated, depending of the growth factor and the cell line. This is seemingly due to differential regulation of fos gene expression, not only at the transcriptional and/or post-transcriptional level (transient or sustained fos RNA induction by EGF or TGF beta in EL2 cells), but also at the translational level (fos protein(s) induction by TGF beta in EL2 but not NIH-3T3 fibroblasts, possibly related to the stimulatory vs inhibitory effect of this factor on the growth of the former vs the latter line).
