Organization and Pol icy The Council for Tobacco Research --U.S.A., lnc. is the sponsoring agency of a program of research into questions of tobacco use and health. 11 is the outgrowth of an exganization formed early in 1954 by tobacco manufacturers, growers and ware- housemen. Research support has been mainly through a program of grants-in-aid supplemented by contracts for research with institutions and laboratories. The Council does not operate any research facility. The Scientific Advisory Board to The Council meets regularly to evaluate appli- cations for research sup(mrt, judging them solely on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. The Council awards research grants to independent scientists who are assured complete scientific freedom in conducting their studies. Grantees alone are responsi- ble for reporting or publishing their findings in the accepted scientific manner- through medical and scientific journals and socicties. .IAMr•.C F.

Inside Back Cover Introduction With its research funding continuing at a substantial level during 1992, the Council remains among the leading agencies in the country that are supporting scien- tists in various areas of basic biomedical investigation. Funding in 1992 was $19,5(Hl,(HN.I, bringing to more than $204,(HNI,(x10 the Councij's research program support since it began operations in 1954. NigMy-Ihree original projects were approved in 1992: many more continuing and renewal studies also were funded. To date, a total of 1.329 original investiga- tions havc been supported by the Council. Recipients for these arc 932 independent scientists at more than ?O0 medical schcols, hospitals and research centers. Council grantecs published 342 reports on their suppnrted research during the year. Abstracts of these are included in this report. The total for such publications now is at least 4,770. Two distinguished scientists joined the Scientific Advisory Board to the Council in 1992. They were Dr. Lco G. Ahond, Professor of Pharmacology and Biochemistry, Department of Pharmacology, University of Rochester Medical ('cntcr, Rochester. NY, and Dr. Raymond L. Erikson, American Cancer Society Professor of Cellular and Developmental Biology, Biological Laboratories. Harvard University, ('amhridge, MA. t)r. George A. Hashim, internationally recognized for his work on the structure and function of proteins and peptides,jnined the Council's scientific staff as an Associate Research Director. lie retired recently as a Senior Research Scicntist/Scholar at Columbia University's Departments of Microbiology and Surgery where he also had been an Associate Professor.

Epidemiologic studies have linked this disease to "chronic injury," largely induced by cigarette smoking. In the present studies, we demonstrate the in rivn expression of platclct-derived growth factor (PDGF) and PDGF receptor (PDGF-R) (3 mRNAs and their respective protein products in malignant cpithelial cells of primary human lung carcinomas. In contrast, nonmalignant epithelial cells in control, normal lung tissue specimen did not express PDGF and PDGF-R mRNAs and did not produce their respective protein products. Epithelial cells in lung speci- men from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis expressed only PDGF mRNA but not PDGF-R (3 mRNA. These Findings of the inappropriate coexpression of a potent mitogen, PD(;F. and its receptor in lung cancer epithelial cells suggest thee presence of a powerful in rirr, mechanism contrihuting to the self-stimulation and unregulated growth of lung cancer tumor cells.

IGF-11, and their respective receptor mRNAs in primary human atitrocytomati and mcningiomas. In situ hyhridizatinn and imrnunocytnchcmistry have localited a strong expression of both IGF-I and IGF-11 mRNAs and of their protein products in the tumor cells of astroc:y- fomas and meningiomas. The expression of IGF-I and IGF-11 mRNAs in the tumor- cells was accompanied by the co-expression of their respective type-1 and type-11 IGF receptor mRNAs. Control, non-malignant human brain expressed IGF-I mRNA and IGF-I and IGF-II receptor mRNAs. lhere was no significant expression of IGF-11 mRNA in the control brain specimens. Control pachymeninges (dura mater) expressed low levels of IGF-1 mRNA and IGF-I receptor mRNA. There was no sig- nificant expression of IGF-11 and IGF-Il receptor mRNAs in pachymeninges. The co-expression of IGFs and their receptors in brain tumors may contribute in their development and maintenance. The strong inappropriate expression of IGF-11 mRNA and its protein product in the tumor cells of astrocytomas and meningiomas, hut not in normal brain spccimens, may serve as molecular markers for the early detection of these tumors.

We have previously reported a consistent pattern of novel sites of mcthyla- linn in the 5' region of thc calcitonin (CT) gene and other chromosome 1 Ip loci in acutc myclogenous and lymphcrid Icukcrnias. In the present study. CT gene mcthyla- tinn rattcrns were invcstigatc(1 in peripheral blood from 51 patients with CML. Abnormal patterns were found in only 2 of 31 patients in chronic phacc, hut in S(if R patients in accelerated phase, and in I I(if 12 patients in blast crisis (P <.(N)5). For one patient studied in blast cri.is. abnormal CT gene methylation was found in the peripheral blast cells hut not in the granulocytcs. In two of three patients sturlicd with ('ML and having normal peripheral cell patterns, abnormal patterns were found in marrow blast cells. In nne patient. only partial normalization of the C'T gene mcthy- Imion pattern was seen after chemotherapy induction of a second chronic phase and the patient relapsed 5 months later. Our findings indicate that abnormal mc(hylation nf Ih'c 5' rc€ion of the CT gcnc is regularly a marker of disease progression in ('ML which may prove clinically useful. This abnormal mcthylation site is part of an imbalance in DNA methylation that may play a rolc in the progressive gcnctic insta- hility which charactcri7cs advancing stages of CML. Neikin. B.

DIFFERENTIAL REGl1LAT1ON OF jun FAMILY GENE EXPRESSION BY THE TUMOR PROMOTER OKADAIC ACIL) Phosphorylation events are major regulatory mechanisms of signal transduction pathways that control cell growth and differentiation. The potential involvement of sertne/threonin-specific phosphoprotein phosphatases in pathways that regulate gene expression was analyzed. By use of okadaic acid, an inhibitor of protein phos- phatases I(PP-1) and 2A (PP-2A), we present evidence that expression of distinct members of the jun family of genes, c jun, jun8, and junD, are regulated differential- ly by serine/threonine-specific phosphoprotein phosphatases. Treatment of cells with okadaic acid induces the expression of jun13, and to a lesser extent c jun, but has only a marginal effect on junD expression. This induction involves transcriptional as well as post-transcriptional mechanisms. An analysis of defined elements in different promoters suggests that serine/thrconine phosphoprotcin phosphatases are involved in the regulation of the c-jun and the collagenase 12-O-tetradecanoyl phorbol- 13°acetate (TPA) response element (TRE) as well as the c fns serum response ele- ment (SRE). Since inhibition of PP° I and PP-2A leads to increased proto-oncogene expression, our results further support the view that certain protein phosphatases might act as negative regulators of growth.

BIOLOGICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL ACTIVITY OF v-Crk CHIMERAS CONTAINING THE S112/SH3 REGIONS OF PHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL- SPECIFIC PHOSPHOLIPASE C-y AND Src The chicken CT10 virus oncogenc product, p47'11"', contains SH2/SH; domains that have been identified as conserved domains among proteins involved in signal transduction. We studied the functional similarity of the SH2/SH3 domains by replacing those of v-Crk with those of phosphatidylinositol-speclfic phospholipase C--y. v-Src, or c-Src. The transforming activity of v-Crk was partially retained in a mutant with a v-Src S113 domain but not in the other mutants with heterologous SH2/SH3 domains. Mutant viruses with Crk-SH2/SH3 domains induced tyrosine phosphorylation of cellular proteins, hut mutants with phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C--y or Src SH2/SH2' domains did not. However, the mutant proteins with heterologous SH2/SH2' regions were able to weakly associate with sonie phos- photyrosinc-containing proteins in virr•n. These results indicate that in the context of the P47^""' structure, the requirement of Crk-SH2/SH3 is more stringent for its activ- ity to induce cell transformation than to cause phosphorylation of cellular proteins. 26 27

Cystcine is one ol' the most conserved residues during protein evolution and has been implicated in DNA hinding, protein-protein interaction and redox regulation ol' various proteins. Therefore, we have now individually substituted each of the seven cystcincs of v-Myb with a scrine. All seven mutant proteins bound to DNA when they were expressed in F.. t•uli. However, mutant C65S neither (ran.c-activated transcription in vivo nor transformed mycloi(1 cells, although it was transported into Ihc nucleus. This cystcinc is conserved in the Myb-related proteins of animals, plants, yeast and the cellular slime mold I)ir•tvn,clelium dist•oideurn. The C65S mutation and a nearby codon insertion mutation also abolished rr•arr.c-activation by fusion proteins. containing the v-Myh I)NA-hinding domain and the strong constitutivc activation domain of herpes simplex virus (IISV) VPI6. Because this domain of VPI(i appears to activate transcription whenever it is bound upstream of an appropriate promotcr, these resullti imply that C65 may he required for high- affinity DNA binding in rirn. In support of this hypothcsis, we have also shown that, in contrast to wildtypc v-Myh• mutant (Y,5S is unable to block transcription from a reporter gene in which Myb hincling siteti overlap the initiation site.

HOST RANGE MUTANTS OF v-.vc: ALTERATIONS IN KINASE ACTIVITY AND SUBSTRATE INTERACTIONS Host range mutants of Schmidt-Ruppin v-•crr that transform chicken embryo fihrohlasts (CEF) but not Rat-2 cells were generated previously by linker insertinn- (Iclction mutagenesis (J. E. DcCluc and 0. S. Martin, J. Virol. 63:542-554.19R9). nnc of these mutants, SRX5, in which Tyr-41fi is substituted by the sequence Ser Arg Asp, retained high levels of kinase activity in vitro and in r•ir•cr, Ixith in CEF and in Rat-2 cells. Phosphorylation of p36 (the calpactin I heavy chain) was drastically recluced in cells expressing SRX5 ,cre•, suggesting that the phenotype of SRX5 results from an alteration in substrate recognition by the srr kinase. Three mutants, SPX I, SIIX13, and XD6, containing linker insertions or sniall deletions within the .crr homology 2(SH2) region, induced reduced levels of kinase activity in both (TF aml Rat-2 cells. However, the resictual levels of kinase activity in Rat-2 cells were ahnve the threshold at which wild-type pp6(P "' transforms Rat-2 cclls, indicating that tile reduction in kinasc activity was not sufficient to accounl for the failure to transform. Cells infected by these mutants exhibited reduced levels of phosphorylation ol' 120- and 62-kDa proteins. We have reported elsewhere (M. F. Moran, C. A. Kcxh, I). Andcrson, C. Ellis, L. England. Ci. S. Marlin• and 1'. Pawson, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. I1SA 87:R622-8626, 1990) that r•ns GTPase-ac•tivating protein GAP and associated protein p62 are not tyrosine Phosphorylatcd in Rat-2 cells expressing SIIX 13 or XDfi. The transfonnation defect in Rat-2 cells may result from the failure to phos- phorylate those proteins. The fifih mutant, XD4. contains a deletion which rcmnves all of the srr• homology 3 (S113) and most of Ihc SH2 sequences of srr. The prntcin encoded by XD4 is active ati a kinase when expressed in CEF. indicating that in ('F'sF tile SI12 and S113 regions nf v-sr•c are not necessary for kinase activity and Iransfnr- mation. The XD4 .crr• product i-~ not tyroeine phosphorylated and is inactive as a kinase when expressed in R:u-2 cclle. 'f'hus, host cell factors can affect the Iyroeinc photphnrylation and activilv of thc r srr• kinase in the absence of the SI-12 and SH:( regions. These results indicate thal the hnst-clependcnt Iramformatitm phenotype results frrnn alleratinns in sr•r kinase activity and suh%trate specificity. Lichl, F's. ('., England. I,. J., 1)eCluc. .1.

Human hronchiole epithelial cells and rat type 11 pneumocytes w found to express pIRS"'"' at low to undetectable levels by Western blot technique, contrasl, 13 lung cancer cell lines expressed pIR51"". and eight of these 13 expres; p185"'"' at levels at least 2-fold higher Ihan that found in normal bronchiole epithe cells or type II pneumocytes. Genomic Southern analysis showed that amplifical of the HER2 gene was present in only one of the eight cell lines that expres pIR5"'"' at these higher levels. Increased levels of steady-state HER2 mRl occurred in the remaining seven cell lines. We conclude that in human non-smsdl, lung carcinoma cell lines the most common mechanism resulting in increa PIR5"'" expression is due to mechanisms that increase HER2 mRNA levels, v HER2 gene amplification occurring less commonly.

We have cxamined the expression of the rrru gene in human non-small cell lung carcinomas using immuno- precipitation and immunohistuchcmistry. The rreu protein product (pIR5^^") was pres- ent in eight of 22 non-small cell carcinoma cell lines derived from human lung tumors. Expression o1' pIR5"^ was found in all histological subtypes of non-small cell carcinomas including large cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and adeno-carcinomas. Extension of these data to biopsy specimens of human lung tumors demonstrated that normal ciliated bronchial epithelium of the peripheral air- ways expressed pIR5°^, at low levels. Neoplastic cells in four of 12 adenocarcinomas and three of five squamous cell carcinomas also expressed p185°•. at levels higher than the nomial ciliated bronchial epithelium. Together these studies indicate that p 1 R5^^" expression is a common feature of human lung tumors. Wriner, D. B., Nordberg. J.. Rohinson, R., Nowell, P. C., Gazdar, A.. Greene, M. 1., Williams, W.

PROGESTERONE AUGMENTS PROLIFERATION INDUCED BY EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR IN A FELINE MAMMARY ADENOCARCINOMA CELL LINF. Steroid honnoncs and peptide growth factdrs promote growth and development of nonnal nianunary tissues and some types of breast cancer. Ovarian steroids may influence mammary growth directly or indirectly. The epidermal growth factor (EGF), family of proteins may also regulate mammary growth. These two pathways may function independently of each other or they may act in concert, with steroids inducing transcription of genes that encode growth factors or growth factor receptors. We ueed a feline mammary adenocarcinoma cell line (K 12) to address whether there was an interrelation between progesterone (PGN) and EGF-associated growth pathways. K 12 cells responded to EGF by a dose-dependent increase in pro- liferation. PGN or promegestone (R5020, a synthetic progestagen) alone did not stimulate K 12 growth, hut when EGF and PGN, or EGF and R502O were combined, they were synergistic. This synergistic response was abrogated by the PGN receptor antagonist RU4Rh or by antibodies that blocked binding of EGF to its receptor. K12 cells expressed characteristic double-affinity EGF receptors, as well as p185 (a functionally and structurally related protein, product of the neu gene) on their surface. PGN receptors were also found on intact cells and in cleared cytosols. Stimulation of K 12 cells by PGN or by R5020 induced a two- to threefold increase in the number of high-affinity %urface EGF receptors after 24 h. Stimulation of these 46 cellc by P(7N also affected the relative levels of phosphorylation of the EGF recepl ~r~rl pl}t5 within minutcs, but not of other cellular phosphoproteins. Our results shc that PCiN enhances the EGF-induccd growth of K 12 cells and suggest that Ihis cffe rn,ry Ix medialed at least partly via an increase in the number or function of hig ;d7inity F.GF receptors. 1vlocliano, J.

Tissues and organs inncrvated by the SCG are responsible for this protection since, in a man- ncr similar to dccentralizatinn, bilateral removal of the SCG (ganglinnectomy) reduced anaphylaris-induced accnnudatinn nf inflamntatory cells in bronchoalveolar htvage fluid. Removal nf the suhmandibular gland (sialadenectomy) did not modify the severity ol' the pulninnar-y inflammation, but concurrent tiialadeneclomy and decentrali7ation ahnliched the protective effect of decentralization. Thus, we Postu- late that cervical sympathetic nerves tonically inhibit release of anti-inflammatory factnrs from submandibular glands. No relationship was found between noradrena- line and sernlonin content of .ubmandihular glands and the degree of protection against pulninnary inflammation offered by decentralization and ganglionectomy. 13oth decentralization and ganglionectbmy appeared to increase the level of tran- scripts that encode immunomcxlulatory growth factors (nerve growth factor and epi- dennal growth factor) in suhmandihular glands, hut these denervations evidently did not modify the transcripts for TGF(32.

MONOCYTE ADHERENCE TO FIBRONF.CTIN: ROLE OF CDI I/CDIft INTf.(1RINS ANT) RELATIONSHIP TO OTIIF,R MONOCYTE FUNCTIONS Adherence of monocytes to extracellular matrix comPonents is critical for lheic accumulatinn at sites of infection. To gain insight into the factors Ihat regulate montx•yte recruitment, we have studied monocyte adherenee with regard to the regu- latory effects of bacterial IipnPolysaccharide (LPS) and the nrechanisms involved; nrnrcnver. we have contrasted the phenotypes of adherent and nonadhcrent cells. Our results show that only a minor suhpopulation of monocytes (20-25%) adhere sponta- neously to fihroncctin and Ihat LPS stimulated a threefold increase in the propnrtion of adherenl cells. Basal adherence and LPS-stimulated adherence of monocytes to fibronectin were substantially mediated by CDI I/C'DIR integrins. Further studies revealed that spontaneously adherent monocytes were 14-fold more actively phago- cytic, released 1.6-fold more superoxide anion, and contained 20-fold more Pcroxi- <lase activity than nonadherenl cells, whereas LPS-adhercnt cells had an intermediate phenotype. These results indicate that LPS may enhance the accumulation of mono- cytce with an antimicrobial phenotype and thereby promote resolution of tissue infectinn. Owcn, C. A..

After antigen challenge, M, receptor function is decreaseel. thus increasing release of acetylcholine from the vagus and potentiating vagally induced bronchoconstriction. Guinea pigs were anesthetiaed, tra- chcostrnnized, vagotomized, paralyzed, and ventilated. Electrical stimulation of the vagi caused hronchoconstrictinn and bradycardia. In controls, pilocarpine attenuated vagally induced hrrnichrxnnstrictinn by stimulating neuronal M; muscarinic recep- lors. ('onversely, blocking these autoreceptors with gallaminc potentiated vagally induced hronchoconstrictionl In challenged animals the effects of both drugs were markedly reduced, confirming M, receptor dysfunction. 20 min after heparin or poly- t_-glutamate, the elTects of both pilncarpine and gallamine on vagally induced hron- chncnnetriction were restored, demonstrating recovery of M, receptor function. Neither heparin nor poly-t -glutamate affected vagally induced responses in control aninialc.

We sought to determine if cigarette smoking induces a change in cathepsin I, Ievcl,~ in alveolar macrophages which woidcl, in turn, alter the expression of claslolytic activity. Lyssues of smokers' macrophages assayed at pH 5,5(1, degraded more than seven times as much I'Hlelastin as (lid Iysates from non- smokers' macrophages (44 ± 2f1"R vs. 6 ± 1.6 µg-I(>~ cells' • 24 h'). Little or no activity was demonstrable at neutral pll. Imrnunohlots of macrophage lysates dcmonstrated that smnkers' cells contain 3.7 ± 1.1 times as much 25-kDa cathepsin I, antigen as nonsmokers' cells. Howevcr, as judgcd by active site labeling, levcls of active cathepsin I, in smokers and nonsmokcrs are indistinguishable, suggesting that most uf thc 25-kI)a antigen found in smokers' macrophages is inactive. Inhibitors of cathepsin L had little effccl on lysate elastolytic activity, confirming that an enzyme other than cathepsin 1, is responsible for the increased elastolytic activity seen in smokers' mac'rophaget. Further experiments demonstrated that this second cnrymc(s) has a profile of inhibition indicating that it is a cysteine proteinase with optimal activity at pl15.50. It is this second elastolytic cyslcine proteinase(s) that is induced by exposure to cigarette smoke and is responsible for the sevenfold increase in clastnlytic activity found in snmkcrs' macrophage lysatcs.

NEP activity was measured in tracheal hrxnogenates made from each animal of other groups exposed to either o7crne or room air. By reverse-phase high-pressure liquid chromatography, this activity wati characterized by the phosphoramidon-inhibi(ahle cleavage of alanine-/)-nitroaniline from succinyl-(Ala) -I)-nitroaniline in the presence of I(X) µM amastatin. Mean values of the changes in log ED.,,,,SP were 0.27 ± 0.07 (SE) for the o7rnie-exPosed group and 0.09 ± 0.04 for the air-exposed group. We found that phosphnramidon significantly increased substance P reactivity in the air- exposed animals (P <O.01), hul it had no effect in the ozone-exposed group. This finding was associated with a significant reduction in tracheal homogenate NEP activity of oznne-exlxxed animals compared with controls: mean values were 18. 1 ± 1.9 mmol - min' - mg prntein' for the ozone-exposed group and 25.1 ± 2.4 nmol - min' • mg Protein' for air-exposed animals (P <(l.O5). Inhalation of an acrosolized NEP preparation, partially purified from guinea pig kidney, reversed the substance P hyperreactivity Produced by ozone exposure. Inhalation of phnsphoramidon post- NIiP inhibited this effect. Heat-inactivated NEP aerosol had no influence on ozone- induced hyperreactivity. Our data indicate that ozone exposure decreases airway NEP activity and increases substance P reactivity, which can he reversed by acrosriliced NEP. Murlu,c. ('- G.. Lang.7,., Williame, G.

Hundreds of different agentc have been associated with these disorders which affect millions of people. Perhap. the most common type of these disorders is so-called occupatinnal, or environmentally related, asthma, which affects more Ihan a million people in the United States (Salvaggio. 19R2). The importance of this problem is further enhanced by the fact that it is a preventable and reversible disease. In certain situations, how- 58 cvcr, particularly those related to Ihe isocyanates or to western red cedar, the diq- nrder may persist for titonth,; or years after the last exposure. Agents that have been linked to this type of asthma can hc classified into thrct hrnad c•ategories (Moller e( :d., 19R(i): large molecular weight biological suhstancex smell molecular weight chemicals, and various fumes or gases. Biological agenL include dusts from animal danders and secretions, insects and cnlstaceans, vegetahh gunls, and plant bacterial enzymes. The palhogenesis of asthma associated witl these substances may or may not relate to their stimulating 1gE-medialed reaction when inhated. Small molecular weight chemicals linked with asthma include iso cyanates, acid anhydrides, platimmm, and resin. The pathogenesis of environmentall: related asthma caused by these agents and to various fumes and gases remains con Iroversial in most instances. Because of increasing air pollution and steadily risin industrial use of a wide variety of potcntially harmful agcnts, especially oxidants these envirunmental health hazards represent seri6us public health concerns.

fihrinogen is F.a = 6.1 and 7.9 Kcal/mol, respectively. These values suggest that Ihe ratc-limiting step is dictated by a reaction of oxygen with "frce° or protcin-hound copper cations. The lemperalure dcpendcncy of the extent of transformation of human and bovine fihrinogen into nenfihc is unusual in that il is biphasic-increasing from 5 to 25^C, and dccrcasing Ihercafter, to 43°C. This is not due to the tempera- ture stability of fibrinogen. The esscntial requirement for coppcr, ascorhate and oxy- gen or hydrogen peroxide, as well as the low cfficiency of mannitol as a scavenger, are in accord with the most likely interpretation of these data that fihrinogen under- gocs a site-specific Fenton reaction. This modifies Ihe protein and results in the fnr- mation of insoluble, pnlymeric, neofibe aggregates. Karpel, R., Marx. G., and Chcrinn, M. Israel Journal of Medical Sciences 27:61-66, 1991.

AS AN IN VlVrl IREF, RADICAL TRAI': STUDIES ON IS('Hf;MIC INSI)LT TO THE RAT IN'1'ISTINE lschcmia of rat intestine was induced in riro by occlusion of the superior mesentcric artery (SMA) for 15 min. Sodium salicylate, 100 ntg/kg, given 1P, 30 min prior to the ischemic event scrvcd as a specific Irap for hydroxyl radicals. Portions of tfie bowel were sequentially isolated and remove(I- 2 min prior to ischemia, 2 min prior to declamping ol (he SMA, and IO min following reperfusion. The bowel seg- ments were homogenized in 3% TCA. The homogenate was centrifuged and filtrated Ihrnugh a n.2:.1 µ filter. The hydroxylation products of salicylate, dihydroxyhenzoic acid (I)I IHA) derivatives, were isolated, itlentifiecl, and quantified by HPLC coupled with etcctrnrhentical detcction (1;('D). The level of 2.5-DIIBA (M ± SE, ng/g tissue) in the prei.chemic bowel (N = 21) was 24 1.9 ± 10.0. In the ischemic specimen the level of 2.5-DHBA increased significantly to 313.3 ± 15.5 (p = q.O129), and reniaincd unchanged in the rcpcrfusion period (322.8 ± 15.5). The histological exam- ination cnrrelated well with these levels: mild villi damage in the ischemic pe-rind with no further exacerbation during the reperfusion period. This study in an in rivn animal model of intestinal ischcmia-repcrfusion provides clirect evidence for the involvement of free radicals during the ischemic insult.

LOC ALI7,ATION OF p35 (ANNEXIN I, LIPOCORTIN I) IN NORMAL ADULT RAT KII)NEY ANI) DURING RECOVERY FROM ISCHEMIA The 35-kDa protein (p35, lipncortin I, annexin 1), originally discovered as Ca-dependent substrate for the EGF receptor tyrosine kinase, binds CA" and phos pholipids. is developmentally regulated in embryos and has restricted expression i adults. Immunohistochemistry of normal rat kidney shows that p35 is enriched i, epithelia of Bowman's capsule, the macula densa, and medullary/papillary collectin ducts, suggesting that p35 is related to specialized renal functions. Light staining i nlnerved in the thick ascending limb; elsewhere, immunoreactivity is nil. Since ren, recovery from ischemia involves both hyperplasia and hypertrophy and reportedly i accclcrated by EGF, we examined p35 distribution during this process. After 4 hours of recovery, hnth the distribution and amount of renal p35 are alterec Immunoblots show p35 levels increased at least threefold in whole-kidne homogenates. The expression of p35 is still highly restricted in recovering kidney: however, the thick ascending limb now stains heavily. This is the first document; tion of altcrations in anncxin levels (luring a pathophysiologic response. Howcve our attempts to discern cl7ects of exogenous EGF on the recovery from ischem were negative for both mitotic index and renal function assays. McKanna, J. A., Chuncharunce, A., Munger, K.

The cxpcctcd reduction in albumin mRNA levels to 4R"G, of control livers occurred in diabetic rat liver, while apo B and apo F mRNA levels were unchanged. The proportion of translational stop codon (BSTOP) mRNA avcragcd 43% of total in diabetic rats similar to control levels.

Pulse-chase studies, together with mRNA analyses, suggest that reduced hcpatic sccrction of apo 13 and apo E in diabetics is primarily a result of impnircd translation and not intracctlular degradation. Rihosomc transit studies directly conlinncd the prolonged clongation ratcs for api) B and apo E mRNAs in hepalorytes derived from diahetic rats.

F,fTECT OF NICOTINE ON EXTRACELLULAR LEVELS OF NEUROTRANS- MITTERS ASSESSED BY MICRODIALYSIS IN VARIOUS BRAIN RECiIONS: ROLE OF GLUTAMIC ACIL) We studied the effect of local administration of ~ipcnoctin pon the release c monoamines in striatum, substantia nigra, cerehellum, hi am us, cortex (fronta cingulatc), and pontinc nuclcusand on the release of glutamic acid in striatum of rat in rirn, using microdialysis for nirntine administration and for measuring extracellr lar amine and glutamic acid Icvcls. Following nicotine administration the extracellt lar concentration of dupaminc increased in all regions except cerebellum: scrotoni increaced in cingulate and frontal cortex; and norepinephrine increased in suhstant nigra, cingulate cortex, and pontinc nucleus. Cotinine, the major nicotine metabolit had no effect at similar concentrations. The cholinergic antagonists mecamylamir and adropine, the dopamincrgic antagonists haloperidol and sulpride, and the excit lory amino acid antagonist kynurenic acid all inhibited the nicotine-induced incrca of extraccllular dopamine in the striatum. The fact that kynurenic acid almost cor pletely prevented the effects of nicotine, and nicotine at this concentration producr a 6-fold increase of glutarnic acid release, suggests that the effect of nicotine mainly mcdiatc(1 via glutamic acid release. 96 97

Separation of the released radioactivity on alumina columns indicated that nicotinc or electrical stimulation increases the release of f 711DA and that the outflow of'fl- lahelccl metaholites was similar with the two different stimulation procedures. Removal of ('a" from the supcrfusatc resulted in a marked reduction in the tritium release evoked by nicotine whereas the clectrical stimulation-evoked tritium release was completely dependent on external Ca".

In humans, nicotine-induce( improvement of rapid informatinn processing is particularly well documented. Ir experimental animals nicotine has been found to improve learning and memory on t variety of tasks, while the nicotinic antagonist mecamylamine has been found h impair memory performance. Nicotine has been found to be effective in attenuatinl memory deficits resulting from lesions of the septohippocampal pathway or aging ii experimental animals. Nicotinic receptors are decreased in the cortex of patients wit Alzheimer's cliscasc. Prcliminary studies have found that some aspects of the cogn livc deficit in Alzhcimer'S discase can be attenuated by nicotine.

hamster kidney (RHK-21) cells were stably cotransfected with plasmid pSV2/nery which contains the gene conferring vectors containing (he human hFGF cDNA. Various clones, which differed in their hFGF production levels, were isolated Homogeneous neural crest cells were cultured on monolayers of hFGF-producing, BHK-2I-derived cell lines. While the parental F1HK-21 cells, which do not prnduce detectable hF(iF, had poor neurogenic ability, the various hFGF-producing clone.% promoted a 1.5- to 4-fold increase in neuronal cell number compared to the parental cells. This increase was correlated with the levels of bFGF produced hy the different transfectcd clones, which ranged between 2.3 and 140 ng/mg protein. In contrast, no stimulation of neuronal differentiation was observed when neural crest cells were grown on monolayers of parental f3FIK cells transfected with plasmid pSV2/neo alone, or on a parental BHK-derived clone, which secrets high amounts of recomhi- nant vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Furthermore, the ncuron-promoting ability of bFGF-producing cells could he niimicked by addition of exogenous bFGF to neural crest cells grown on the parental 131-1K line. A similar treatment of neural crest cells grown on laminin substrata, instead of BHK cells, resulted in increased survival of non-neurnnal cells, but not of neutrons (see also Kalcheim. C. 1989, Dev, F3:iol. 134, 1-1(1). 'I'akcn together, these results suggest that hFGF stimulates neuronal differcntiation of neural crest cells by a cell-mediated signalling mechanism.

In all cases, l'HI-cAMP formed was separated and measured. C'arbachol ( I(X) µM) and McN-A343 (10 mM) were used as standard muscarinic agonists. These studies gave the following results: a) McN- A343 (10 rnM), an M I receptor agonist, was only a partial agonist causing 40% inhi- f ,n of cAMP accumulation indicating Ihat this effect was not mediated by an A r ccPt"r: h) The MI-selective antagonist, pirenzepine, exhibited low affinity (p~ t,,2) further suggesting that an MI receptor was not coupled to the attenuation cAMP accumulation; c) Two selective M2 antagonists (AF-DX 116 and methc irarnine) and M3 antagonist (HIiSiD) were used to further characterize these mi carinic receptors.

PRFSYNAPTIC MUSCARINIC RECEPTORS AND THE AUTOREGULATIO OF NEUROTRANSMITTER RELEASE Two mechanisms have been proposed for the regulation of acetylcholine (A release in the nervous system: a negative feedback mechanism and an ACh-aml cation mechanism or a positive feedback mechanism. We have used 5-hydr methyl-furfuryltrimethylammonium (5-HMFf and 5-methoxyfurfuryllrimcl ammonium (5-MOI'1'), two furan analogs of muscarine, to study the above me nisms in Auerbach plexus of longitudinal ileal muscles of the guinea pig whicl rich in ACh (119-120 mmol/g). 5-HMFT (10" to 10' M) inhibited spontancoi well as nicotine-induced release of ACh. Atropine, enkephalins, and morphine : ished the effect of 5-HMIT. These observations indicate that 5-HMFT activa muscarinic receptor (Mi) and causes inhibition of ACh release. 5-MOFT caused traction of the guinea pig ileal muscle (EC50, 28 mm) which was potentiate physostigmine and blocked by atropinc. When the tissue was depleted of AC incuhation with hemicholinium-3, the response to 5-MOFT disappeared, indic that 5-MOFT activated a presynaptic muscarinic receptor (Ms) and released These results indicate that the Aucrbach plexus contains two muscarinic rcce (Mi and Ms), one excilatory and the other inhibitory, which maintain homeosta ACh release.

DOPAMINE EFTLI/X FROM STRIATUM AFTER CHRONIC NICOTINE: EVIDENCE FOR A1ITORECEP'F'OR DESENSITIZATION We examined the effect of chronic nicotine treatment on dopaminergic activity by measuring the effects of D, and D, dopamine (DA) receptor agonists and antago- nists on tritium release from mouse striatum prcloadcd with I'HIDA. The radioac- tivity released during supcrfusion was separated on alumina columns and the distribu- tion and efflux of 1'H1DA and its main 'H-laheled metabolites were quantified. After preloading by incubation with ['HIDA, the electrical slimulation-evoked tritium overflow was higher in striatum prepared from nicotine-treated mice, whereas in vin-n adclition of nicotine caused a similar increase in tritium release from stiiatum of untreated and chronic nicotine-treated mice. The overflow of 1'H1DA and its 'H- metatxolites exhibited similar clistribution patterns in I'HIDA-preloadcd striatum dis- sected from untreated and chronic nicotine-pretreated mice, indicating that repeated injections with nicotine did not alter the metabolism of I'HII)A taken up by Ihe tis- sue. (-)-Quinpirolc, a selective agonist for D' DA receptors, and apcrmorphine, a nonselective D,/D, agonist, inhibited Ihe electrical stimulation-induced tritium efffux from striatum of untrcated mice, whereas (±)-sulpiride. a D2 DA receptor antagonist, enhanced the evoked release of tritium. These changes in tritium efllux effected by (-)-quinpirolc and (±)-sulpiridc reflected changes in 1'H1DA release and not in DA mclabolism, as shown by separation of the released radioactivity on alumina columns. The D, receptor agonist (±)-SKF-3R393 did not affect the tritium overflow, whcrea% the 1). receptor antagonist (+)-SCH-23390 exerted a stimulatory action but only at a high oncentration. In contrast, neither the DA receptor agonists 1(-)-quin- pirnlc. alximorphinc, and (±) SKF-383931 nor thc antagonists 1(±)-sulpiride and (+)- S('H-23 ttN)1 altered the stirnulation-evoked tritium release in striatum obtained from mice repeatedly treaUed with nicotine. It is concluded that chronic administration of nicotine produces an increased release of I)A in the stria(um with a resulting eleva- tion of synaptic DA concentrations leading to development of D, DA autoreceptor subsensitivity. As a consequence, chronic nicotine may attenuate autoinhibition of dopaminergic neurotransmission in the strialum. Harsing, L, G., Jr., Senchen, H., and l ttjtha, A.

Pnlylytiine, pnlyornithinc and, to a lesser extent, polyarginine were found to aimulate the GTPase activity of the purified recombinant a subunit of the human Gi , tran.ducing Prntcn a, ,. Optimal stimulation of 4- to 5-fold was obtained with pnly%inc concentrations between I and 20 µm, higher concent.rations being inhibit- ory. Polylysine at similar concentrations stimulated by 50% Ihe GTPase of trans- ducin (G,), the visinn Iransducing protein, but had only a very slight effect on the (;TPace of the p21 product of the H-ra.s protooncogene. The stimulation of the a, GTI'ase caused by polylysine was due to a reduction of the apparent K~, for GTP from 3.9 to 1.3 µM. The stimulation by polylysine was observed at free Mg` con- centrations below I tiM. These results indicate that polylysine acts in a fashion simi- lar to mastoparan and substance P in tnimicking the action of an agonist-hound receptorrrn G-proteins.

CELL CYCLE-DEPENDENT LOCALIZATION OF CASEIN KINASE I TO MITOTIC SPINDLES Cascin kinase I (CKI) is a class of protein kinases ubiquitous to all eukaryotic cells. Recently, cDNA clones encoding several bovine CKI isoforms have been sequenced that show high sequence identity to this gene product of the budding yeast Sacr•ltarnntvres t'ererisiac; HRR25 is required for normal cellular growth• nuclear segregation. DNA repair, and meiosis. We have raised polyclonal antibodies to a human erythroid 34-kDa CKI and have sequenced a portion of this kinase. The amino acid sequence identifies the CKI as the a-CKI isofonn, which is 62% identi- cal to the HRR25 protein kinase. By use of immunofluorescence, the a-CKI has been kxalized to vesicular cylosolic structures and to the centrosome in interphase cells. As cells progress into mitosis, centrospheric staining increases and, in mitosis, a-CKI associates with kinetoihore fibers. This localization suggests that a-CKI, like HRR25, plays a role in the segregation of chromosomes during mitosis and may be cell cycle-regulated both in humans and in yeast. Rrockman• .t.

A BRANCHING PROCESS MODEL OF GENE AMPLIFICATION FOLLOWIt CHROMOSOME BREAKAGE We have devised a mathematical model of gene amplification utilizt experimental observations concerning dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) g e amp cation in CHO cells. The mathematical model, based on a biological model wF proposes that acentric elements are the initial intermediates in gene amplificat includes the following features: (1) initiation of amplification by chromosomal bn age to produce an acentric structure; (2) replication of acentric DNA, once per cycle; (3) dissociation of replicated acentric DNA; (4) unequal segregation of a- tric DNA fragments to daughter cells at mitosis; (5) subsequent reintegratio acentric fragments into chromosomes. These processes are assumed of unequal setgregat on and i tegration cell at a given time. Thus. P occur in parallel, not necessarily in a unique sequence, and may be reiterated in or multiple cell cycles. These events are described mathematically as a Ga . Watson branching process with denumerable infinity of object types. This m matical model qualitatively and quantitatively reproduces the major elements c dynamical behavior of DHFR genes observed experimentally. The agree between the mathematical model and the experimental data lends credence t biological model proposed by Windle et al. (1991), including the importan chromosome breakage and subsequent gene deletion resulting from resection c broken chromosome ends as initial events in gene amplification. Kimmel, M., Arelrnd, D.

POPI ILATIONS Traits such as birth sim and lifetime can vary widely even among nonmutated progeny of the same cell proliferating in the same environment. On the other hand, population parameters of these traits may remain stable over many generations, and there may be a (listinct inheritance of these traits from mother to daughters. We have reconsidered the implication of mother-daughter correlations in light of linear regres- sion analysis. It is proposed that a non-mutant cell whose phenotype deviates from Ihe population mean produces progeny whose rate of regression toward the mean is prnportional to I -r, where r is the mother-daughter correlation coefficient of the trait under study. Theoretical support for this proposition is derived from linear regres- sion analysis. Empirical support is found in pedigree analysis of cell growth con- stants among N1113T3 mouse fibrohlast cells, where the presence of an activated human ra.c oncogene is associated with a decreased r and an increased rate at which the growth constantti of progeny regress toward the population mean.

SERUM-FREE MOUSE EMBRYO (SFME) CELLS AND TRANSFORMING GROWTH FACTOR (TGF)(3, Serum-free mouse embryo (SFME) cells died with the addition of transforming growth factor (TGF)(3, in the absence of selenium. This cell death was reversed by vitamin E, indicating a lipid peroxidation mechanism. The cell death was also sup- presssed by either selenium or albumin or high density lipoprotein. The effect of TGF(i, was somewhat different with rac- or rreu-transfected SFME cells. TGF0, lowered the resistance of SFME cells to heat treatment. Masayoshi, l. and Barncs. D. W.

Using radioactively labeled RNA probes I mRNAs and monoclonal antibodies for proteins, we found that the expression ol comprehensive set of differentiation stage-specific genes was affected by the type fihroblasts included in the matrix as well as by the age of the culture. The expressi . of these genes was not always coordinated and could not he predicted from the his- logical appearance of the stratified epithelium.

VIRAL El ANI) E2 PROTEINS SUPPOR'1' REPLICATION OF HOMOLOGOUS AND HETEROLOGOUS PAPII,LOMAVIRAL ORIGINS We have shown Ihat F;I and E2 proteins of human papillomavirus type I I (IIPV-I I) were essential to support the replication of the homologous viral origin (nri) in a transient rcplication assay, similar to reports on bovine papillomavinis type 1(BPV-I). Unexpectedly, matched or even mixed combinations nf EI and E2 pro- teins from HPV- I I or BPV-I replicated either nri in human, monkey, and rodent cell lines of epithelial or fibroblastic lineage, albeit with varied efficiencies. Either set of viral proteins was also able to initiate replication of nri-containing plasmids from many other human and animal papillomaviruses. Thus, the interactions among the cis elements and trans factors of papillomaviruses are more conserved than expected from the other members of the papovavirus family, simian virus 40 and poly- ornavirus, for which large tumor antigen does not replicate a helerologous nri in either permissive or nnnpennissive cells. We infer that the stringent species and tis- sue specificities observed for papillomavinises in rirn are nnt entirely due to direct restrictirnie on viral DNA replication. Rather, transcriptional control of viral gene expression must play a dominant role. Chiang, C. M., Ustav, M., Stenlund, A.. Ho. T. F., Brnker, T. R., and Chow. L. T.

The synthesis of TAP and the cxhression nf trnnsfomiation properties in the 6m2 cells arc all temperature-sen- sitive. TAI' is secreted as two pnlypeptides of 64 kD and 68 kD (P64 and P6R). f:xperimgnt, were carried out to determine whether any metalloprotcinase (MP) activity w;ie a~snciated with TAP. Results of zymograms indicated that the two forms of piirified TAP (P64 and P6R) had MP activity, using gelatin or collagen type IV as suh,~trates. Scrum-free medium (SFM) of 61112 cells incubated at 33°C also showed two bands of MP activity, while the corresponding SFM from 6m2 cells at 39"C lacked such MP activity, indicating that the synthesis of MP was temperature- sensitive. The association of MP activity with the P(A and P6R hands of TAP (puri- fied or in SFM) was confirnud by simultancnux Western blot analysis, which showed the reactivity of the two MP hands with monnclonal or polyclonal antibodies tn TAP. Accnrdingly, what we previously designated as TAP is apparently one form of MI'. which arc known to hc involved in tumor cell metastasis. ('hun,.l. ('., Scanlnn, M.. Zhang. H. 7.., and Murray Ill.

MOLECULAR CLONING AND CHARACTERIZATION OF v-mns- ACTIVATi:D TRANSFORMATION-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS Using monoclonal antibodies, we previously detected two forms of transforma- tion-associated proteins, a 64-kDa protein and a 68-kDa protein, in temperature-sen- sitive I 10-Moloney murinc sarcoma vims-mutant-transformed rat kidney 6m2 cells. The identity and functions of the transformation-associated proteins were previously unknown. By molecular cloning techniques and immunoscreening, we have isolated two cDNA clones (34A and 79B3) that were found by Western blot analysis to code for a monoclonal anti-transformation-associated protein antibody-reactive polypep- tide of approximately 59 kDa. Limited restriction enzyme mapping indicated 34A and 79B3 arc two different cDNA clones. The nucleotide sequence of 34A cDNA was determined, and a search of GenBank revealed that it is identical to that of rat transin-2. The deduced amino acid sequence of 34A shares 71 % sequence identity with rat transin and 41-76% identity with six human metalloproteinases. The limited restriction enzyme mapping and partial nucleotide sequencing data indicated that 79B3 may be the rat transin gene. When either 34A cDNA or 79B3 cDNA was used as a probe in Northern blot analysis, one mRNA band of approximately 1.9 kilobases was detected in 6m2 cells grown at the permissive temperature of 33"C, at which the cells exhibited transformation properties, and a much lower level in 6m2 cells grown at the nonpermissive temperature of 39°C, atwhich the cells reverted to normal phe- notypes. These results suggest that at 39"C, these two genes were not. transcribed at the same level as at 33"C. "Lymogram and Western blot analysis of 6m2 cells further confirmed that the 64- and 6R-kDa proteins have metal-loproteinase activities and that the synthesis of mctal-Ioprnteinases was also temperature-sensitive. Apparently, the Iwn proteins we formerly designated transformation-associated proteins are members of the rat transin gene family. Therefore, within v-mo.c transformed 6m2 cells, the absence of transformatinn-associated protein (metalloproteinase) synthesis at the nonpermissive temperature was due to the absence of transcription of two rat transin gencs.

Based on the assumption that iron and copper could serve as mediators for transformation of relatively low reactive species (such as superoxide radicals, hyt gen peroxide, ascorhate, and others) to the highly reactive species,in the site-c cific metal-mediated mechanism, two new modes for intervention have been t out. The first is the introduction of specific chelators that "pull" out redox-active available metals, and by this reduce the apparent damage. Desferrioxamine shown to protect bacterial cells and mammals against the poisonous effect paraquat. Using the retrogradly perfused isolated rat heart, we have demonsir that the chelator neocuproine, which effectively binds both iron and copper prov a major protection against hydrogen peroxide-induced cardiac damage and ag: ischemia/reperfusion-induced arrhythrmas. Likewise. TPEN a heavy metal chel provides almost total (>90%) protection against ischemia/reperfusion-indt arrhythmias. The other mode of intervention is the use of redox-inactive metal ions that c compete for the binding sites of iron and copper, and by this "push" these metal out, lead to their displacement. and divert the site of free radical attack. Appl Zn(II) complexes provided a marked protection against metal mediated free rad induced damage in the copper-mediated paraquat toxicity to E. coli, and it arrhythmias induced by ischemia and reperfusion. It is proposed that the complex zinc-desferrioxamine would be the ultimate tector being effective by both the "pull" and "push" mechanisms. Cheriom, M.

GRADIF.NTS OF HOM1?OI'ROTEINS IN DEVF,LOPING FEATHER BUDS Homcoprntcins arc functionally involved in pattern formation. Recently, homeo- proteins have been shown to hc distributed in a graded fashion in developing limb buds. Hcrc we examine the expression of homeoprotcins in chicken feather develop- 122 „icnt by immunocytochemical localization. We find that XlHbox I antigen is pres, in cell nuclei and is distributed in a gradient in the mesoderm of developing featl hn(ls with strongest expression in the anterior-proximal region. The gradient is m „hvious in feather buds from the mid-trunk level. Feather buds from the scapc level express very high levels of XlHbox I and feather buds from the cau region express no XlHbox 1, suggesting that a broad gradient along the body axi: .uperimposed on a smaller gradient within each individual feather bud. Feat cr.tndcrm also expresses XlHbox I antigen but without an obvious graded pattc Another hnmeoprotcin, Hox 5.2, is also expressed in developing feather buds i graded way, and its distribution pattern is partially complementary to that of XIHI i. These observations suggest that homeoproteins may be involved in setting up antcrnpnstcrior polarity of cell fields at different levels, first for the body axis, t! (nr the limb axis and finally for the feather axis. ('hpnn,q, C.-M.. Oliver. G., Ting. S. A., Jegalian. B. G., Chen, H. M., and Rnhertis, E. M. Development 110:1021-1030, 1990.

ESTROGEN RECEPTOR FUSION PROTEIN: RF,VERSIBLE INDUCTION OF CELL TRANSFORMATION AND CELLULAR GF.NE EXPRESSION We describe the construction of a v-re/ estrogen receptor fusion protein (' rcfER) which allows the regulation of v-re! oncoprotein activity by hormone. In tI presence of estrogen, v-relER readily transformed primary chicken fibroblasts at hone marrow cells in vitro. In both cell types, v-rel-specific transformation was cri cally dependent on the presence of estrogen or the estrogen agonist 4-hydroxytamo ifen (OHT). Withdrawal of estrogen or application of an estrogen antagoni IC'1164,3R4 (ICI) caused a reversal of the transformed phenotype. We also demc strate that the r-relER protein binds to NF-KB sites in an estrogen-dependent m: ner, thereby showing that sequence-specific DNA binding of v-re/ER is critical I the activation of its transforming capacity. In transient transfection experiments, failed to demonstrate a clear repressor or activator function of the v-re! moiety in reIF,R. However, in v-relER-transforrned hone marrow cells, estrogen and 01 induced elevated mRNA levels of two cellular genes whose expression is consti tive and high in v-re/-transformed cells. These results suggest that v-r•el might e) part of its activity as an activator of v-rel-responsive genes. Boehmelt, G., Walkcr, A., Kabrun, N., Mellitzer.

The transmembrane desmosomal glycoprotcins have been proposed lo play a role in cell adhesion; desmoglcin 1(D(I) is a major member of this class of desmoenrnal molecules. However, evidence supporting a role for I)GI in cell adhesion or in the plaque is lacking. In order to begin to understand DGI function, we have identified human cDNA clones encoding the entire maturc polypeptide of I(1(X) amino acids. Our data suggest that like Ihc bovine D(;I molecule, ttuman DGI is highly related to the calcium-depen(lent class of cell adhesion molecules known as cadherins. Four related extracellular domains loc:ated in the atnino-terminal domain of the molecule contain putative calcium binding sites originally identified in the cadherins. The highest degree of similarity between human N-cadherin and human 1)GI, and likewise between bovine DGI and human DGI, is greatest in the most amino-terminal extracellular domain. This suggests a 140 1 141

THE DESMOPLAKIN CARROXYL TERMINUS COALIGNS W1T11 AND SPECIFICALLY DISRUPTS INTERMEDIATE FILAMENT NETWORKS WHEN EXPRESSED IN CFILTUREI) CELLS Specific interactions between desmoplakins I and 11 (DP I and 11) and other desmosomal or cyto-skeletal molecules have been difficult to determine in part because of the complexity and insolubility of the desmosome and its constituents. We have used a molecular genetic approach to investigate the role that DP I and Il may play in the association of the dexmosomal plaque with cytoplasmic intermediate filaments (IF). A series of mammalian expression vectors encoding specific predict- ed domains of DP I were transiently expressed in cultured cells that form (COS-7) and do not form (N1H-?T3) desmosomes. Sequence encoding a small antigenic pep- tide was added to the 3' end of each mutant DP cDNA to facilitate immuno-localiza- tinn of mutant DP protein. Light and electron microscopical observations revealed that DP Polypeptides including the 9O-kD carhoxy-terminal globular domain of DP I specifically colocalized with and ultimately resulted in the complete disruption of IF in both cell lines. This effect was specific for IF as microtuhule and microfilament networks were unaltered. This effect was also specific for the carboxyl terminus of DP, as the expression of the 95-kD rocl domain of Dl' I did not vicihly altcr IF net- works. lmmunogold localization of COS-7 cells transfected with constructs includ- ing the carlxoxyl terminus of DP demonstrated an accumulation of mutant protein in, perinuclear aggregates within which IF subunits were sequestered. These result,; sug- gest a role for the DP carboxyl terminus in the attachment of IF to the desmricome in either a direct or indirect manner. Stappenbeck, T. S. and Green. K. J.

Roles were hypntheci7ed for these junctinn,; in ti%sue modeling, and in regulatirni of cell func- lirni and ccll proliferation. The ahility to isolate intcrccllular junctinns has led to the development of more dctailcd molecular models of thccc junctinns- -and to many surprixes. For gap junc- tinnti, a family of structural prntcinx, the connexins, has now been idcntificd, prc- sumably with individual properties which influence Ihe activity of intercellular chan- nel.. 'I'ight junctions are now known tn not only form a diffusion ban-ier for solutes, hut for plasma membrane proteins and lipids, thereby creating di.ecrete domains within the cell's limiting membrane.

CYTOSINE METHYLATION CAN INDIICE LOCAL DISTORTIONS IN TI1E STRUC'T(IRE OF DUPLEX DNA Methyl groups at the C5 position of pyrimidines located within oligopurinc- nlignpyrimidine tracts in DNA have been shown previously to modulate curvature generated hy those tracts. However, it was not known whether the influence of such methyl groups is consequent to the altered helical structure within the tracts them- selves. In the current study, it is demonstrated that methylatinn of cytosincs tip to three base pairs away from a(dA),(dT), tract (A-tract) can still result in alterations of the nct curvature of the A-tract-containing DNA, as measured by aherations in clcc- trophoretic mobility. This latter effect depends strongly on both the sequence of the non-A-tract DNA and the positions of the methylated C residues. The current results lend further support to the notion that the biological consequences of cytosine methy- lation may be effected through local alterations in I)NA structure as well as through direct protein-DNA interactions.

MOLECULAR CLONING ANI) I:XPRESSION OF CIiICKEN C-TERMINAL Src KINASE: LACK OF STARLE ASSOCIATION WITFI c-Src PROTEIN Cloning and sequencing of chicken C-tcrminal Src kinatc (CSK), a tryosinc kinasc that phosphorylates the regulatory C-lerminal tryosine residue present on cyloplaxmic tyrosine kinases of thc Src family, demonstrated a high degree of inler- species conservation as well as src homology 2 and 3 domains N-terminal to the kinase domain. The lack of ardophnsphorylation sites distinguishes CSK from other tyrosinc kinaces. C'SK is unique and does not belong to a gene family, suggesting that il may phosphorylate other members of the Src family of tryosine kinases in addition to c-Src. Since complex formation between c-Src and CSK seemed a likely regula-Inry step in the ccmtrol of c-Src kinase activity, such an association was inve5- tigaled by immunoprecipilation and Western blotting as well as intracellular local- ization studies. Although some pnrtions of CSK were found in a membrane fraction, no complex formation between CSK and c-Src was observed, suggesting that the src homology 2 domain of CSK does not play a role in the direct interaction of c-Src.

DIFFERENTIAL REGULATION OF PROTEIN KINASE C ISOZYMES BY TIIYROTROPIN-RE,LEASING HORMONE IN GH~C, CELLS GH c, cclls, which express Ca"-ctepcndcnt a- and (3- as well as Ca"-indepcn- dent y-, e- and t-protcin kinase C (PKC) isozymes, provide a cell culture model for studying isozyme-specific properties and functions. Hormonal activation of PK('s regulates the differentiated functions of these cells, namely secretion and synthesis of prolactin (PRL). We previously reported that lhyrotropin-rcleasing hormone (TRI1) selectively clnwn-moclulates E-PKC with no effect on rx- or (3-PKCs (Kiley. S. C.. Schaap. I)., Parker. P.. I Isich. I..-L., and Jaken• S. (1990) J. Biol. C'hem. 265, 1 5704-1 57 1 2). We now crtend those studies to explore the relationship between TRH-stimulated diacylglycerol (DAG) levels and E-PKC down-moclulation. TRII stimidates three distincl I)AG phnscs in (7II cells. Phase I DAG peaks at 15 s, is accompanied by a 6-fnld increase in intracellular Ca", and causes the redistribution of o-, (3-, fi. and F 1'K(' i,~orymc,; from a soluble to a dctcrgenl-insoduhlc particulate compartment. Phase 2 I)A( ; peaks at I(1 min, is not associated with a('a" signal, and does not activate PKC by any criteria tested. Phase 3 DA(i peaks at 6 h and is sus- taincd through 12 h. -Ihis novel 1)AG phase is not associated with incrcasc(I intracel- lular Ca''. The time course of phase 3 DA(i fonnation corresponds to the time coune of TRII-stimulatecl e-PKC down-regtdatiun: niaximal effects are ohservect at 6-12 h for both events. Unlike n-, /3-, and Fi-PKCs which arc preferentially distributed in the soluble fraction of resting GH cells. e-PKC is also distributed in the detcrgcnt-insol- uhle particulate frac•tion.

A modeling of this region suggests two possible overlapping zinc-fingcr-likc motifs. Using a zinc blotting tcchniyue, we show that Tax hinds zinc. An N-terminal deletion in Tax that removed this zinc- finger region abolished the ability to bind zinc. Site-directed mutagencsis was used to gcneratc 10 separate mutations so as to discriminate between the two alternative zinc-binding structttres. Each Tax mutant was studied for its ability to trans-activate the I ITI,V-1 LTR. Five of Ihe ten mutations inactivated trans-activation.

The mapping results showed that Ihc micnx:lnncs were unevenly distributed along chromosome 21, with the majority of microclones located in the distal half portion of the long arm, between 2lq2l.3 and 2lqter. The number of unique-sequence clones began to decrease significantly from 21q21.2 to centromere and extending to the short arm. This finding is consistent with those reported in other chromosome 21 libraries. Thus, it may be inferred that the proximal portion of the long arm of chromosome 21 contains higher proportions of repetitive sequences, rather than unique sequences or genes. The micrcxlones were also characterized for insert size and were used to identify the corresponding genom- ic fragments generated by lfindlil. In addition, we demonstrated that the microclones with short inserts can be efficiently used to identify YAC (yeast artificial chromo- some) clones with large inserts, for increased genomic coverage for high-resolution physical mapping. We also u.ced 2(X) uniquc :eequence microclones to screen a human liver cDNA library and identified two cDNA clones which were regionally assigned to the 21q21.3-q22.1 region. Thus, generation of unique-sequence microclones from chromosome 21 appears to he useful to isolate and regionally niap many cDNA clones, among which will he candidate genes for important diseases on chromosome 21, including Down syndrome.

IN VITRO ANALYSIS OF A TYPE I DNA TOPOISOMERASE ACTIVITY FROM ('ULTURED TOBACCO C'ELLS The role of DNA topoisomcrates in plant cell metabolism is currently under investigation in our laboratory. Using a purified type I topoisomerasc from cultured tobacco, we have carried out a biochemical characterization of enzymatic behavior. The enzyme relaxes negatively supercoiled DNA in the presence of MgCI,, and to a lesser extent in the presence of KCI. Phosphorylation of the tnpoisomerase does not influence its activity and it is not stimulated by the presence of histones HI or H5. The enzyme may act in either a processive or distributive manner depending on reac- tion conditions. The anti-tumor elrug, camptothecin, induces significant breakage by the enzyme on purified I)NA molecules unless destabilized by the addition of KCI. The tobacco tnpoisomerase I can catalyze the formation of stable nucleosomes oil circular I)NA temphHes, suggesting a role for the enzyme in chromatin assembly. Cole. A.

Yields are determined as a function of pH and lhe presence or absence of oxidants. I)uring -y-radiolysis and the Fenton reaction the same hyclroxylated products are formed. The final product distribution depends on the rate of the oxidation of the hyclroxyl radical adducts (hydroxycyclohexadiene radicals) relative to the competing dimeri/.ation reactions. The pH profiles for the hydroxylations of phenylalanine and tyrosine shov, a maximum at pH 5.5 and a minimum around pH 8. The lack of hydroxylated products around near pF1 R is due to the rapid oxidation of dopa to mclanin.

I)NA priniase requires a 3'-hydroxyl on the incoming NTP in order to polymerizc it, i i while the 2'-hydroxyl is advantageous, but not essential. Amazingly, primase prefers to polymerize araATP rather than ATP by 4-fold (k,,,/KM). However, after incorpora- Iion of an araNMP into the growing primer, further synthesis is abolished. The 2'- and 3'-hydroxyls of the incoming nucleotide appear relatively unimportant for nuclcotide binding to primase. Polymerization of nucleoside triphosphates by DNA polymerase a onto a DNA primer was similarly analyzed. Removing the 3'-hydroxyl of the incoming triphosphate decreases the polymerization rate >IOOtI-fold (kjK„), while a 2'-hydroxyl in the ribo configuration abolishes polymerization. If the 2'- hydroxyl is in the ara configuration, there is almost no effect on polymerization. An araCMP or ddCMP at the 3'-terminus of a DNA primer slightly decreased DNA binding as well as binding of the next correct 2'-dNTP. Changing the primer from DNA to RNA dramatically and unpredictably altered the interactions of pol a with araNTPs and ddNTPs. Compared to the identical DNA primer, pol a discriminated 4-fold better against araCTP polymerization when the primer was RNA, but R5-fold worse against ddCTP polymerization. Additionally, pol a elongated RNA primers containing 3'-lerminal araNMPs more eff iciently than the identical DNA substrate. Kurhta, R. D., Ilsley, D., Kravig, K. D., Schubert, S., and Harris, B.

INHIBITION OF DNA PRIMASE BY 9-(3-u-ARAI3INOFURANOSYLADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE 9-/3-D-Arabinofuralnosyladenosine triphosphate (araATP) is a potent inhibitor of DNA primase. Primase readily incorporates araATP into primers, and primers containing araAMP are then elongated by DNA polymerase a(po1 a) upon addition of dNTPs. AraATP did not inhibit utilization of primers under conditions where the ability of pol a to elongate primers was independent of the dATP concentration. The fraction of primers elongated by pol a was reduced by araATP only when elongation was dependent upon the dATP concentration. When the K for prima.se was meas- ured in terms of the inhibition of the synthesis of primers tfiat can he utilized by pn1 a, we obtained K = 2.7 µM (37°C) and 2.0 µM (25°C). Inhibition was competitive with ATP. Inhibilion of pol a activity by araATP was measured under conditions where primase-catalyzed primer synthesis was required for the pol a activity. The decreased pol a activity was due to primase inhibition, and at constant dATP, araATP inhibition was competitive with ATP and gave K= 1.2 µM, similar to the K for primase alone. Increasing the dATP concentration hail no effect on inhibition. Iri combination with previously reported in vivo data, we conclude that DNA primase is Ihe primary in vivo targe( of'the arabinofuranosyl nucleotictes, not pol a. Kurhta.

When these strains were grown in glucose, a low level of gene conversion events involving TyUra was detected. Upon growth on galactose an increase in the rate of gene conversion was seen. This homologous recombination is not the consequence of increased levels of transposition. When an intron-contain- ing fragment was inserted into Ty I Nco, some of the convertants had the intron removed, implying an RNA intermediate. Mutations that affect reverse transcriptase or reverse transcription of TylNeo greatly reduce the induction of recombination in galactose. Thus. Ty cDNA is involved in homologous gene conversion with chromo- somal copies of Ty elements. Our results have implications about the way families of repeated sequences retain homogeneity throughout evolution. Mclamed, ('., Nevo, Y., and Kupier, M.

Various procedures for fragmenting the DNA prior to transfer are in use, but quantitative details that permit reproducible application have not been reported. We have determined the optimum level of energy for uv nicking of large DNA needed to promote efficient Southern transfer and detec- tion by hybridization. To ensure consistent results we have used a uv oven equipped with a detector that measures only 200-400 nm wavelengths, and we report the total energy delivered. Using uv nicking and the transfer techniques described, we can obtain hybridization signals overnight with single-copy DNA probes on Southern blots of large DNA fragments separated by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.

FACTORS DETERMINING THE SPECIFICITY OF SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION BY GUANINE NUCLEOTIDE-BINDING PROTEIN-COUPLED RECEPTORS- I. COIIPt.1NG OF a=-ADRENGERIC RECF.PTOR SUBTYPES TO DISTINCT G-PROTF.INS a1 Adrenergic receptor (a -AR) subtypes couple to pertussis toxin (PT)-sensitive G-proleins to elicit both stimulatory and inhibitory cell responses. Signal specificity may be generated by the ability of the receptor subtypes to "recognize" distinct G- proteins with different affinity. To address this issue we stably expressed three a-AR subtypes, RNGaI (a,w- AR), RGIO (ax-AR), and RG20 (a?~~ AR), in NIH-3T3 fibroblasts, which express two PT-sensitive G-proteins (G~Z, Gp~), and analyzed receptor/G-protein interactions by determining: I) functional couplmg to adenylylcyclase and 2) the ability of the receptors to exist in a high affinity state for agonist. In az-AR transfectants express- ing 200 or 2,200 fmol of receptor/mg of protein, epinephrine (10 µM) inhibited forskolin-induced elevation of cellular cAMP by 26 ± 4.8% and 72 ± 6.2%, respec- tively. Similar results were obtained in a w AR transfectants. However, in a-AR transfectants (200 fmol/mg) the forskolininduced elevation of cellular cAMP was not altered by agonist treatment. In a1 -AR transfectants expressing higher receptor densities (650-1,200 fmol/ mg), epineplrrine inhibited the effect of forskolin by 30 ± 3.2%. This difference in functional coupling among the a. AR subtypes is reflected at the receptor/ G-protein interface. In membrane preparations of azp and a7D -AR hut not a7,.-AR transfectants, agonist competition curves were biphasic, indicating high and low affinity states of the receptor for agonist. The high affinity state was guanyl- 5'-yl imidodiphosphate- and PT-sensitive, indicative of receptor/G-protein coupling. These data suggest that the aN-AR differs from the alp and a -AR subtypes in its ability to recognize PT-sensitive G-proteins expressed m NIHJT3 fibro- blasts. The an-AR may couple preferentially to PT-sensitive G-proteins (G", G„"I) not expressed in NIH- 3T3 fibroblasts and thereby elicit different cellular responses.

Plasticity in this system is conferred by the existence of each entity as isoforms or closely related subtypes that arc expressed in a tissue-specific and developmentally regulat- ed manner. Factors that determine signal specificity in this system are poorly under- stood. Such factors include the relative affinity and stoichiometry of R-G or G-E and the possible colocalization of R-G-E in cellular microdomains. Utilizing the a2 adrenerglc receptor (a,-AR) system as a representative subfamily of this class of sig- nal transducerti. we dctemlined the relative importance of these factors. By analysis of R- (; coupling in manlmalian cells cotransfected with a,-AR genes and G cDNA. we demonstrate preferential coupling between an a,-AR subtype and G, tJur data implicate R-G affinity as an important determinant of signal transduction specificity smd indicate that a critical level of G cr is required for coupling.

PtIRIFICATION AND ('HARAC'TERI7,ATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL IMIDA7,OI.IN1;-(;tIANII)INIUM REC'EPTIVE SITE FROM RABBIT KIDNEY The imida/oline-guani(linium receptive site (IGRS) is a memhrane-tx)und pro- tein that may medialc some of the pharmacological effects of imidazoline and guani- diniunt cumpounds. The structure and functionality of this protein are unknown but, in addition to its location at the plasma membrane, it is found in high density in the outer membrane of mitochondria (Tesson. F., 1'rip-Buus, ('., Lemoine, A.. Pegorier, J.-P., and Parini. A. (1(J91).I. BioL ('hcm. 266, 155-I60). Using a two-step procedure, we report the purification of mitochondrial IGRS irom rabhit kidney to the apparent homogeneity. After solubilization of mitochondrial membranes with digitonin, an apparently homogeneous IGRS preparation was obtained by two sequential purification steps, chromatofocusing and hydroxylapatite-agarose chromatography. One- and two- dimensional sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis analysis of the purified preparation after silver staining or radioiodination indicated that IGRS binding subunit was purified at the apparent homogeneity since a single band (M, - 60,000) was observed. IGRS behaves as an acidic protein (p1 5.5) whose binding activity is regulated by H' concentration near a physiological pH of 7.4. The ability to achieve rapid purification of IGRS should facilitate efforts to define molecular properties and functionality of this protein. Limon, I., Coupry, I., Lanier, S. M., and Parini, A.

FACTORS DETERMINING THE SPECIFICITY OF SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION BY GUANINE NUCLEOTIDE-BINDING PROTEIN-COUPLED RECEPTORS. ill. COUPLING OF aj ADRENERGIC RECEPTOR SUBTYPES IN A CELL TYPE-SPECIFIC MANNER A number of diverse signaling pathways can be activated by G-protein coupled receptors. However, the factors involved in selection of a particular transduction pathway by a single receptor are not well understood. We are attempting to address this issue utilizing the a= adrenergic receptor (a= AR) subfamily as a representative model system. In this report, we demonstrate that the cellular response mediated by an a -AR subtype is cell-specific and thus depends on its environment. Receptor coupiing to adenylylcyclase was determined following stable expression of the rat aZ - and a= -subtypes in three functionally distinct cell types (NIH-3T3 fibroblasts, DaT. MF-5 smooth muscle cells, and the pheochromocytoma cell line PC-12). When the receptor subtype gene is expressed in NIH-3T3 and DDT. MF-2 cells, receptor activation inhibits basal and forskolin-induced increases in cellular cAMP. However, in PC- 12 transfectants the same receptor subtype actually increases basal cAMP and augments the effect of forskolin. Potentiation of the forskolin effect in PC-l2 cells is insensitive to pertussis toxin but is blocked by loading the cells with BAPTA (bis-(n-aminophenoxy)-ethane-N,N,N,1V'-tetraaeetic acid) which minimizes changes in Ca", by calcium chelation. These data and the functional demonstration of a Ca''/calmodulin-sensitive adenylylcyclase in PC-12, but not NIH-3T3 and DDT~MF-2 cells, suggest that the cell-specific effects of epinephrine are due to receptor coupling to both different G-proteins and types of adenylylcyclase.

MOLECULAR CLONING OF CELLULAR GENES ENCODING RETINOBI.ASTOMA-ASSO('IATED PROTEINS: IDENTIFICATION OF A GENE WITH PROPIiR'fIES OF TI-fE TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR E2F The retinohlastoma protein interacts with a number of cellular proteins to form com- plexes which are probably crucial for its normal physiological function. To identify these proteins, we isolated nine distinct clones by direct screening of cDNA expres- sion libraries using purified RB protein as a probe. One of these clones. Ap12, is expressed predominantly at the G,-S houndary and in the S phase of the cell cycle. The nucleotide sequence of Apt2 has features characteristic of transcription factors. The C'-tcrminal region binds to unphosphorylated RB in regions similar to those to which T antigen binds and contains a transactivation domain. A region containing a potential Ieucine zipper flanked by basic residues is able to bind an E2F recognition sequence specifically. Expression of Ap12 in mammalian cells significantly enhances E2F-dependenl transcriptional acivity. These results suggest that Ap12 encodes a protein with properties known to he characteristic of transcription factor E21;. Shan, B.. 7.hu, X.. ('hen. P.-1,., Durfee, T., Yang, Y., Sharp, D., and Lee.

EPITHELIALTISSUE FORMATION IN MATRIX CULTURE AND IN HISTOPI-IYSIOLOGI(' GRADIENT CULTURE Formation of epithelial tissues in culture so that they become facsimiles in their structure of such tissues in nature requires procedures (hat comply with several spa- tial imperatives: a) three-dimensional growth; b) histophysiologic conditions that provide, concurrently, gradients of maturation and of diffusion of inetabolites: and c) growth as layers of cells without free edges. Many steps have been required in the evolution of these methods. Two systems are descrihe(1 here in sufficient detail to serve as a manual. Three-dimensional growth of masses of epithelial tissue is accom- plished in matrix cuhure using Gclfoarn sponge and collagen-coated cellulose sponge. Radial gradient culture, a recent development, provides conditions that com- ply with the requirements of histophysiologic gradients and of epithelial tissue growth in layers without interruption in their continuity. i I I L,eiRhlon.

PROTEIN TRUNCATION IS REQUIRED FOR THE ACTIVATION OF THE c-myh PROTO-ONCOGIiNE The protein product of the v-myb oncogene of avian myeloblastosis virus, v-Myh, differs from its normal cellular counterpart, c-Myb, by (i) expression under Ihe control of a strong viral long terminal repeat, (ii) truncation of both its amino and carboxyl temiini, (iii) replacement of these termini by virally encoded residues, and (iv) substitution of I I amino acid residues. We had previously shown that neither the virally encoded termini nor the amino acid substitutions are required for transfomia- tiun by v-Myh. We have now constructed avian retroviruses that express full-length or singly truncated forms of c-Myb and have lested them for the transformation of chicken hnne marrow cells. We conclude that truncation of either the amino or car- boxyl terminus of c-Myb is sufficient lor transformation. In contrast, the overexpres- 162 1 163

zSZOOO IZ ?IOD sion of full-length c-Myh does not result in transformation. We have also shown that the amino acid substitutions ol v-Myb by themselves are not sufficient for the activa- tion of c-Myb. Rather, the presence of either the normal amino or carboxyl terminus of c-Myb can suppress transformation when fused to v-Myb. Cells transformed by c-Myb proteins truncated at either their amino or carboxyl terminus appear to he granulated promyclocytcs th:u express the Mim-1 protein. Cells transformed by a doubly truncated c-Myb protein are not granulated but do express the Mim- I protein, in contrast to monohlasts transformed by v-Myb that neither contain granules nor express Mim-I. These results suggest that various alterations of c-Myb itself may determine the lineage of differentiating hematopoietic cells. (;rasscr, F. A., (;raf, T., and Lipsirk,.1. ,S.

FSTRAMUSTINE-PH(>SPIIATE BINDS TO A TUBULIN BINDING DOMAIN ON MI('RO'L'UBtILI:-ASSO('IATED PROTEINS MAP-2 AND TAU I;stramustine-phosphate (EMP), a phosphorylated conjugate of estradiol and nor-nitrogen mustard hinds to microtubule-associated proteins MAP-2 and tau. It was shown that this cstramustine derivative inhibits the binding of (he C-terminal tubulin peptide (3-(422-434) to both MAP-2 and tau. This tubulin segment consti- tutes a main binding clomain for these microtuhule-associated proteins. Interestingly, estramustine-phosphate interacted with the synthetic tau peptides V'"'-G"" and V""- G"`, representing two major repeats within the conserved microtubule-binding domain on t:w and also on MAP-2. This observation is corroborated by the inhibi- tory effects of estramusline-phosphate on the tau peptidc-induced tubulin assembly into microtuhules. On the other hand, the nonphosphorylated drug estramustine failecl to block the MAP peptide-induced assembly, indicating that the negatively charged phosphatc moiety of estramustine-phosphate is of importance for its inhibitory effect. These findings suggest that the molecular sites for the action of estramustinc-phosphate,arc located within the microtubule binding domains on tau and MAP-2.

It has been shown that tau peptides V'`-G"'° and V21"-G"`, representing two main repeats, induced brain tubulin assembly in a concentration- dependent fashion. The specific roles of these repeats in the interaction of tau with microtubules, and its antigenic nature were investigated using synthetic tau peptides ~ and site-directed monoclonal antibodies. Tau peptides appeared to compete with C-4 MAP-2 incorporation into assembled microtubules. The interactions of the tau frag- 0 ments with /i-tubulin peptides bearing the tau binding domain on tubulin were ana- ~ lyzed by fluorescence spectroscopy. The specificity of the binding was further N demonstrated by the reactivity of tau and the tau peptides with a monoclonal anti- p.( idiotypic antibody produced after immunization with the (3-11(422-434) tuhulin pep- o tide, as assessed by enzyme-linked immunoassay. Western blots confirmed the inter- action of tau with the monoclonal antibody. In addition, immunoassays revealed a ~ competition between the MAP-r ti l l eac ng monoc ona antibody and the tubulin peptide (3-11(422-434) for their interaction with the tau molecule. Farias, G.

SURFACE ACTIVATION OF PRO-CATHEPSIN L Procathepsin L is an inactive zymogen that has been shown previously to under- go autolysis at pH 3.0 to give mature forms of the enzyme. We have now been able to demonstrate that this enzyme can undergo activation at pH 5.5 in the presence of negatively charged surfaces. Activation could also be measured at pH 6.0, but no activation occurred at pH 6.5 or higher. The initiation of activation depends upon (he presence of a small percentage of active pro-enzyme, and this is then followed by a more rapid activation to give mature forms of the enzyme. No significant intermedi- ate molecular forms of the enzyme were seen. The time taken for processing of the pro-enzyme to single-chain mature enzyme is comparable to that seen in biosyn- Ihetic pulse-chase experiments. Masnn, R. W. and Massey, S. D.

INIIIBITION OF CYSTEINE PROTF,INASES IN I.YSOSOMES AND WHOLE ('E[.LS Inhibitors of cysteinc protcinascs have been used extensively to dissect the roles of these proteinases in cells. Surprisingly though, little work has been performed to demonstrate unequivocally that the inhihitors reach and inactivate their target pro- teinases in cell culture or in rirn. In the present study, the permeability of lysosomes and whole cells has been studied. Benzyloxycarhonyl (Z)-l"`Iliodo-Tyr-Ala-dia- zomethane (CHN,), an inhibitor of cathepsins L and B, has been shown to label active forms of these enzymes in lysosomes and whole cells. The ability of other cysteine proteinase inhibitors to block this labeling has been used to indicate (he per- meation of these compounds. All thc inhibitors were able to block labeling by Z- I"`I liodo-Tyr-Ala-CHN in lysosomal extracts. In intact lysosomes or cells, however, only N-IN-t.-3-rrans-ethoxycarbonyloxirane-2-carbonyl)-L.-leucyll-3-methylbutyl- arnine ('F:-64d') "7,=fyr-Ala-('HN, Z-Phe-Ala-CHNI and Z-Phe-Phe-CHN, were able to block labeling by Z-I"`llicxlo-Tyr-Ala-CFIN,, N-(t.-3-Ir(in.c-Carboxyoxirane-2-car- bonyl)-t.-Icucyllamino-4-guanidinobutane (E-64) and leupeptin were unable to block labeling by 7.-I"`Iliodc-'1'yr-Ala-CHN,in lysosomes or in cells. The ability to block labeling in lysosomes is an indication of the ability of (he inhibitor to diffuse across membranes. Thus, E-64 and Icupeptin do not readily permeate membranes and, therefore, their uptake into cells probably only occurs via pinocytosis. Wilcox, 1). and Masnn. R. W.

ROLE OF ANTIOXIDANTS IN PROTECTING CELLULAR DNA FROM [)AMAGE BY OXIDATIVE STRESS We have previously derived 2 V79 clones resistant to menadione (MDlcells) and cadmium (Cdl cells), respectively. They both were shown to be cross-resistant to hydrogen peroxidc.'ihere was a modification in the antioxidant repertoire in these cells as compared to the parental cells. Mdl presented an increase in catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities whereas Cdl cells exhibited an increase in metal- hothionein and glutathione content. The susceptibility of the DNA of these cells to the damaging effect of HOt was tested using the DNA precipitation assay. Both Md I and CdI DNAs were more resistant to the peroxide action. In the case of MdI cells it seems clear that the extra resistance is provided by the increase in the two HZO scav- enger enzymes. catalase and glutathione peroxidase. In the case of Cdl ceils the activities of these enzymes as well as of superoxide dismutases (Cu/7.n and Mn) are unahered as compared to the parental cells. The facts that parental cells exposed to I(X) µM 7.n" in the medium exhibit an increase in metallothioncin but not in glu- tathione and that these cells become more resistant to the DNA-damaging effect of H Ol suggest that this protein might play a protective role in vivo against the OH rad- ical attack on DNA.

GLUTATHIONE IS THE ANTIOXIDANT RESPONSIBLE FOR RESISTANCE TO OXIDATIVE STRESS IN V79 CHINESE HAMSTER FIBROBLASTS RENDERED RESISTANT TO CADMIUM By manipulation of Cd and Zn concentrations in the medium, several pheno- types, differing in the contents of glutathione (GSH) and metallothionein (Mt), were derived from a parental clone of V79 Chinese hamster fibroblast. In some of these phenotypes, resistsnee to Cd and cross-resistance to oxidative stress was developed. The highest levels of GSH and Mt were found in cells which were rendered resistant to Cd by stepwise increases of Cd and Zn in the cell medium for over 50 passages. Upon removal of Cd/7.n from the medium of these cells or addition of Cd/7,n to the parental cell medium, changes of cellular GSH and Mt levels occurred to different extents. At the same time, changes in the resistance to Cd and HIOz were observed. Good linear correlations were observed for Mt levels X resistance to Cd and for GSH levels X resistance to H70 . Poor linear correlations were found for Mt levels X resistance to HZO2 or for GSIi levels X resistance to Cd. Moreover, addition of Zn to the medium produced an increase in Mt content without affecting the GSH con- tent. In this case no cross-resistance to oxidative stress was developed. Therefore, Mt which has been shown to be an excellent antioxidant in in vitro experiments, does not seem to play any major role against oxidative stress in Zn and Cd challenged cells. Most of the cross-resistance to oxidative stress in Cd challenged cells seems to be accounted for by the parallel increase in GSH. Chubatsu, L. S., Gennari, M., and MeneRhini, R.

RELEASE OF CELL SURFACE-ASSOCIATED BASIC FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR BY GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL-SPECIFIC PHOSPHOLIPASE C Heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG) are ubiquitous constituents of mam- malian cell surfaces and most extracellular matrices. A portion of the cell surface HSPG is anchored via a covalently linked glycosyl-phosphatidylinositnl (Pl) residue. which can he released by treatment with a glycosyl-PI specific phospholipase C(PI- PLC). We report that exposure of bovine aortic endothelial and smooth muscle cells to PI-PLC resulted in release of cell surface-associated, growth-promoting activity that was neutralized by aniihasic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) antibodies. Active hFGF was also released by treating the cells with bacterial heparitinase. Under the same conditions there was no release of mitogenic activity from cells (BHK-21, NIFI/3T3, PF-HR9) that expressed little or no bFGF, as opposed to PI-PLC-mediated release of active bf-GF from the same cells transfected with the bFGF gene. The released bFGF competed with recombinant hFGF in a radioreceptor assay. Addition of PI-PL(' to sparsely seeded vascular endothelial cells resulted in a marked stimula- tion of cell proliferation, but there was no mitogenic effect of PI-PLC on 3T3 fibro- blasts. Studies with exogenously added "`I-bFGF revealed that about 6.5% and 20% of the cell surface-bcrond bFGF were released by treatment with Pl-PLC and hepar- itinasc, respectively.

However, sevcral other reports show that the mouse 1.7 kb c-mos RNA is exclusive- ly exprested in post-meiolic male germ cells.

However, western immuno-blot analysis reveals the presence of a 41kD c-mns pro- tein in total testis and pachytcnc spermatocytes, but not in post-meiotic cells. These finding combined with those made in the mouse system strongly suggest that c-mos protein may be a regulator of mciosis during spermatogenesis. Van der Hoorn, F. A.. Spicgel, J. E..

SSZOOO is H0D i REGULATORY MECHANISMS FOR SKELETAL MUSCLE DIFFERENTIATION AND THEIR RELEVANCE TO GENE EXPRESSION IN THE HEART ~ The discovery of the MyoD family of skeletal muscle-specific regulatory fac- tors, which bind DNA and activate muscle-specific transcription in collaboration with widely expressed factors, has led to dramatic progress toward understanding the mechanisms responsible for activation of muscle-specific gene expression during differentiation of skeletal muscle. In contrast, relatively little is known of the mecha- nisms responsible for activation and maintenance of cardiac muscle transcription. Many muscle-specific genes that are directly regulated by the MyoD family in skele- tal muscle are also expressed in the heart, which does not express known members of the MyoD family. The different embryonic origins of skeletal and cardiac muscle and the differences in responsiveness of skeletal and cardiac muscle-specific genes to growth factor signals suggest that, if MyoD-like proteins participate in cardiac muscle development, they are likely to be expressed much earlier in development than the MyoD family and may have diverged substantially from these skeletal muscle regulatory proteins. Regulatory pathways independent of or in addition to those controlled by MyoD-like proteins appear more likely to be involved in specifi- cation of the cardiac muscle developmental program. Olson, E.

INTERPLAY BETWEEN PROLIFERATION AND DIFFERENTIATION WITHIN THE MYOGENIC LINEAGE In muscle cells, as in a variety of cell types, proliferation and differentiation are mutually exclusive events controlled by a balance of opposing cellular signals. Members of the MyoD family of muscle-specific helix-loop-helix proteins which, in collaboration with ubiquitous factors, activate muscle differentiation and inhibit cell proliferation function at the nexus of the cellular circuits that control proliferation and differentiation of muscle cells. The activities of these myogenic regulators are negatively regulated by peptide growth factors and activated oncogenes whose prod- ucts transmit growth signals from the membrane to the nucleus. Recent studies have revealed multiple mechanisms through which intracellular growth factor signals may interfere with the functions of the myogenic regulators. When expressed at high lev- cls, members of the MyoD family can override mitogenic signals and can cause growth arrest independent of their effects on differentiation. The ability of these myogenic regulators to inhibit proliferation of normal as well as transformed cells from multiple lineages suggests that they interact with conserved components of the 170 I 171

CYCLIC AMP-DF,PENDENT PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITS THE ACTIVITY OF MYOGENIC HELIX-LOOP-HELIX PROTEINS 1)ifferentiation of skeletal muscle cells is inhibited by the cyclic AMP (cAMP) signal transduction pathway. Here we report that the catalytic subunit of cAMP- dependent protein kinase (PKA) can substitute for cAMP and suppress muscle-spe- cific transcription by silencing the activity of the MyoD family of regulatory factors, which includes MyoD, myogenin. myf5, and MRF4. Repression by the PKA cata- lytic (C) subunit is directed at the consensus sequence CANNTG, the target for DNA binding and transcriptional activation by these myogenic regulators. Phosphopeptide mapping of myogenin in rilro and in vinn revealed Iwo PKA phosphorylation sites, both within the basic region. However, repression of myogenin function by PKA does not require direct phosphorylation of these sites but instead involves an indirect mechanism with one or more intermediate steps. Regulation of the transcriptional activity of the Myol) family by modulation of the cAMP signaling pathway may account for the inhibitory effects of certain peptidc growth factors on muscle-spe- cific gene expression and may also determine the responsiveness of different cell types to rnyogenic conversion by these myogenic regulators.

ISOLATION OF A XENOBIOTIC METABOLIZING CYTOCHROME (P-45(l~,) WITH NO AROMATASE ACTIVITY FROM PLACENTAL MICROSOMI;S OF ROTH CIGARETTE-SMOKING AND NONSMOKING MOTI IERS The presence of different monooxygenase activities has been documented in human placental microsomes. The predominating cytochrome P-450, that of andro- 9GZOO0 Is 'doo I l gen aromatase, catalyzes the biosynthesis of estrogens. Aromatase P-450 has been the object of numerous studies to determine its mechanism of action and to purify it. Gough ef al reported the presence of another enzyme system which catalyzes the hydroxylation of' xenobiotic substances. It has also been reported that a placental cytochrome P-450 is responsible for the hydroxylation of benzolalpyrene via aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase. The low content of the responding cytochrome P-450 in human placenta and instability during purification have made it difficult to isolate any other active P-450 enzyme. As a side benefit gained from our procedure to puri- fy and characterize catalytically active aromatase P-450, we found a fraction from the immunoaffinity.chromatography which showed a high level of xenobiotic activi- ty with little contaminating aromatase activity. Through the use of conventional purification procedures, we obtained a xenobiotically active P-450 with no aro- matase activity. Previous studies on aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase activity have demonstrated higher levels of this activity in smokers but not in nonsmokers. We compared these metabolic activities of (he purified human placental non- aromatase P-450. Osawa. Y., Higashiyama, T., Shimizu, K., and Yoshida, N. In: Soma, H.

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE HEPATITIS B VIRUS ENnI ENHANCER AND X PROMOTER COMPLEX The hepatitis B virus Enhl enhancer element overlaps the promoter of the X gene. By performing methylation interference experiments, four protein factor bind- ing sites clustered in a I20-bp region were found to control the EnhI enhancer and X promoter activities. Deletion mapping experiments indicated that the two upstream protein factor binding sites constituted a basal enhancer module. This module, likely bound by a liver-specific factor and a ubiquitous factor, could activate the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene promoter by 5- or 10-fold, depending on the orientation, in Huh7 cells, a liver-derived cell line, but not in other cell types tested. The two downstream protein factor binding sites interact with the upstream basal enhancer module in an orientation- and distance-dependent manner to increase the enhancer activity by another 10-fold. In addition, at least one of the two downstream protein factor binding sites is also essential for the X promoter activity. Guo. W., Bell, K. D., and Ou, J.-hl.

O1.IGOMI3RIC Sl'RUC"I'URE ANI) AUTOPHOSPHORYLATION OF N(I('LEOSIDE DII'HOSPHATE KINASE FROM RAT MUCOSAL MASTCELL.S Nucleoside diphosphate (NDP) kinases have been found to he involved in a widc range of fundamental biological processes ranging from developmental control to signal transduction and metastasis. We have recently cloned and sequenced a cDNA encoding an NDP-kinase of the rat mucosal mast cell line RBL-2H3 Illemmench, S., Yarden. Y., & Pecht, I. (1992) Binrhemisny (preceding paper in this issue)j. The cnzymc itself has been isolated by means of its affinity to the his- chromone cromoglycate. Here we report several of its biochemical characteristics: A structural model for the native protein is proposed in which two disulfide-Iinked pairs of similar ISkDa subunits (p18) associate to form a 72-kDa tetramer (p72). This is based on the migration properties of the purified enzyme on gel filtration columns, sodium dodecylsulfate gel electrophoresis. and two-dimensional elec- trophoresis, together with peptide mapping data. In the absence of NDP, both intact p72 and the dissociated I8-kDa subunits (p18) were shown to undergo Mg" depen- (lent stoichiometric autophosphorylation utilizing adenosine and guanosine triphos- phate or y-thiotriphosphate as phosphate donor. This autophosphorylation activity was found to he retained by the I8-kDa subunits even following fractionation by SDS-PAGE and electrophoretic transfer to nitrocellulose. The Michaelis constant of this ainophosphorylation reaction with either ATP. ATPyS, GTP, or GTPyS was determined to be 6.5 + I µM. and maximally 2 mol of phosphate were found incor- porated per p72 molecule, thus indicating that phosphorylation occurs at a single site on only two of the four I8-kDa subunits of the holoenzyme. This covalently bound phosphate is labile to hyctroxylarnine and alkaline treatment hut is acid stable, sug- gesting the fomiation of an activated aspartyl or glutarnyl phosphate as the reaction intermediate that is characteristic for the ping-pong reaction mechanism of NDP- kinases. At a much lower stoichiometry (<0.01 mol of phosphate per mole of p72), serine residues were also found phosphorylated. Moreover, at micromolar enzyme concentrations, p72 was found to phosphorylate serine recidues in casein and histone 2b. Using antibodies raised specifically to this NDP kinase, p72 was shown in the rat to be present in most organs. In mice and humans, immunologically cross-reactive auto-phosphorylating proteins were also identified. Hemmerich, S. and Pechl,l.

IIIE FAB-11APTEN INTERACI'IONS The binding of divalent haptens to IgE-class antibodies leads predominantly to their oligomerization into open and closed dimers. Kinetics of the open dimer formation was investigated by fluorescence titrations of Fab fragments of mono- clonal DNP-specifc IgE antibodies with divalent haptens having different spacer length (I' = 14-130 A). Binding was monitored by quenching of intrinsic trytophan emission of the Fab. Addition of divalent haptens with short spacers (I' 14-21 A) to the Fabs at rates larger than a distinct threshold value caused a significant decrease of Fab-binding site occupation in the initial phase of the titration. This finding was interpreted to reflect a nonequilibrium state of hapten-Fab-binding. Such nonequilib- rium titrations were analyzed by inserting a kinetic model into a theory of antibody aggregation as presented by Dembo and Golstein (Histamine release due to bivalent penicilloyl haptens. 1978. J. Immunol. 121, 345). Fitting of this model to (he fluores- cence titrations yielded dissociation rate constants of 7.8 • 10' s' and 6' 10' s' for the Fab dimers formed by the flexible divalent haptens N",N'-di(dinitrophenyl)-t.- lysine (1' = 16A) and bis (N®-2,4-dinitrophenyl•ananyl)-meso-diamino-succina(e (I' = 21 A). Making the simplifying assumption that a single step binding equilibri- um prevails, the corresponding dimer formation rate constants were calculated to be 1.9 • 10` M' s' and 1. 1 • 10' M's', respectively. In contrast, all haptens with spacers longer than 40A (i.e., bis(N"-2,4-dinitrophenyl-tri-o-alanyl)-1,7-diamino-heptane, and di(N•-2,4-dinitrophenyl)-6-aminohexanoate-aspartyl-(prolyl)p t; lysyl (n = 24, 27, 33) exhibit a relative fast dimerization rate of the Fab fragments (>7 • 10"M' s'). These observations were interpreted as being caused by orientational constraints set by the limited solid angle of the reaction between the macromolecular reactants. Thus, ligands having better access to the binding site would react faster. Schweitzer-Stenncr, R., Licht, A., and Pech1, 1. Biophysical Journal 63:551-562, August 1992.

A CROMOGLYCATE - BINDING PROTEIN FROM RAT MAST CELLS OF A LEUKEMIA LINE IS A NUCLEOSIDE DIPHOSPHATE KINASE Recently, we have shown that a membrane-permeant derivative of the antiasth- matic drug cromoglycate (CG) effectively inhibits the Fc -receptor-mediated secre- tory response of rat mucosal mast cells (line RBL-2H3) at a stage preceding the tran- sient rise in the cytoplasmic free calcium concentration lHemmench, S.. Sijpkins, D., & Pecht, 1. (1991) Biochemistry 30, 1523-1532]. In contrast to cromoglycate itself, which is membrane impermeant and ineffective in these cells, its his-ace- toxymethyl ester derivative (CG/AM) can diffuse across the plasma membrane into the cytosol. where it is hydrolyzed into the impermeant CG dianion, which presum- ably may interact with intracellular components involved in the Fc R signal trans- duction pathway. In order to identify cytosolic components involved in the stimulus- secretion coupling that interact with this drug, we coupled CG to an insoluble matrix. This matrix was indeed effective in the affinity isolation from RBL cells of a cytosolic protein that exhibits an apparent molecular mass of 18 kDa on reducing SDS gels. This protein was purified to homogeneity and then fragmented, and the amino acid sequence of three resultant peptides was determined. Using the corre- sponding synthetic oligonucleotides, we cloned and sequenced a cDNA that encodes the full-length 18-kDa polypeptide (pIR). The protein sequence deduced from this cDNA is identical to that of rat nucleoside diphosphate kinase (Kimura N., Shimada, N., Nomura. K., & Watanahc, K. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 1 5744-1 5749j and high- ly homologous (SR"h) to the human NM23 gene product whose expression is associ- ated with reduced metastatic potential, as well as with the Drosophila awd gene product (77% sequence identity). The plR isolated from RBL cells was indeed shown to catalyze phosphate transfer from nucleoside triphosphates to nucleoside diphosphates. This activity was inhibited by cromoglycate (/v~ 2 mM). The amino acid sequence of pIR and its enzymatic activity indicate that this cromoglycate bind- ing protein is a nuc leoside 5'-diphosphate kinase, which, through control of the cyto- plasmic pool of nucleoside triphosphates (e.g.. GTP), may affect the transduction of the Fc,-receptor-mediated signal. Hemmerich, S., Yarden. Y., and Perlrt, l. Biochemistry 31:4574-4579, 1992.

DEVELOPMENTAI. PATTERN OF GENE-SPECIFIC DNA METHYLATION IN THE MOUSE EMBRYO AND GERM LINE Methylation patterns of specific genes have been studied by polymerase chain reaction and found to undergo dynamic changes in the germ line and early embryo. Some C'pG sifes are methylaled in sperm DNA and unmodified in mature oocytes, indicating that the parental genomes have differential methylation profiles. These differences, however, are erased by a series of early embryonic demethylation and postblastula remodification events, which serve to reestablish the basic adult methyl- ation pattern prior to organogenesis. During gametogenesis, all of these sites are unmethylated in primordial germ cells but eventually become remodified by 18.5 days postcoitum in both males and females. The final methylation profile of the mature genn cells is then formed by a multistep process of site-specific demethyla- tion events. These results form a basis for the understanding of the biochemical mechanisms and role of DNA rnethylation in embryonic development.

MOLECULAR CLONING AND DNA SEQUENCE ANALYSIS OF cDNA ENCODING CHICKEN HOMOLOGUE OF THE Bcl-2 ONCOPROTEIN We have isolated a 2228 bp cDNA clone encoding a chicken homologue of the human Bcl-2 oncoprotein by low-stringency hybridization screening of a Xgt I O cDNA library derived from a chicken B-cell lymphoma. DNA sequence analysis of this cDNA revealed an open reading frame predicting a polypeptide of 232 amino acids and a M of 25839. The predicted protein is highly homologous to the human (73%) and mouse (70%) Bcl-2 proteins, and contains a hydrophobic stretch of amino acids within its carhoxyl-end (213-229) consistent with an integral membrane pro- tein. Areas of very high sequence homology shared by all three Bcl-2 proteins at the NHE terminus (amino acids 1-33) and within the last 150 amino acids of these pro- teins suggest the presence of at least two evolutionarily conserved domains within the family of Bcl-2 proteins that may be important either for their targeting to mito- chondria or their ability to block programmed cell death.

THE LIVER AS A STEM CELL AND LINEAGE SYSTEM We propose that the liver is a stem cell and lineage system with many parallels to lineages in the bone marrow, gut, and epidermis, varying from them only in kinet- ics. All are organized with three compartments: a slow cycling stem cell.compart- ment with cells expressing a fetal phenotype and responding slowly to injury; an amplification compartment with cells of intermediate phenotype rapidly proliferating in response to regenerative stimuli or acute injuries; and a terminal differentiation compartment in which cells increasingly differentiate and gradually lose their ability to divide. In all systems, both those with slow or rapid kinetics, the various compart- ments are positioned in a polarized organization, are associated with a gradient in the chemistry of the extracellular matrix, and show lineage-position-dependent growth responses, gene expression, pharmacological and toxicological responses, and reac- tion to viruses and radiation. In general, known oncogens selectively kill cells in the differentiation compartment inducing chronic regenerative responses of the cells in stem cell and/or amplification compartment. Tumors arise by subsequent transforma- tion of the activated stem cells or early precursor cells. The evidence for a lineage model consists of the data implicating gradients in cell size, ploidy, growth potential, and antigenic and gene expression in the liver parenchyma along the sinusoidal plates. The traditional explanation for this heterogeneity is that it represents adaption of cells to a changing sinusoidal microenvironment dictated by the direction of blood flow. However, we review the extant data and suggest that it more readily supports a lineage model involving a maturation process beginning with stem cells and precur- sors in the periporlal zone and ending with sensescing parenchyma near the central vein. Support for this theory is provided by the studies on phenotypic heterogeneity in liver, investigations into the embryology of the liver, and analyses of the re- sponses of liver to chemical and viral oncogens that induce rapid proliferation of small cells with oval-shaped nuclei, "oval cells;" now thought to be closely related to liver stem cells. The lineage model provides clarity and insights into many aspects of liver biology and disease including the limited proliferative ability of in vitro 179 179

TRANSCRIP7IONAL AND POSTTRANSCRIPTIONAL CONTROL OF ('ONNEXIN mRNAS IN PERIPORTAL AND PERICENTRAL RAT HF,PATO('YTES Distinct patterns of expression of gap.junction, or connexin, mRNAs were observed in periportal vs. pericentral hepatocytes. The Iwo cellular fractions (iso- latcd from rat livers by perfusion) were more than 90% parenchymal, as determined by flow cytometry for a hepatocyte-specific marker. The periportal and pericentral fractions were identifiable due to enrichment in enzymatic activities previously shown to he differentially expressed in the respective regions of liver. Northern blot analyses revealed that mRNA encoding connexin 26 was 2.8 times more abundant in the periportal than in the pericentral cells, while connexin 32 mRNA was equally distributed. Messenger RNA from each fraction was radiolabeled in order to com- pare the relative ahundancc of the connexin mRNAs in each fraction. The ratio of connexin 26 to connexin 32 mRNA in the portal fraction was about 0.085, and in the central fraction about 0.038. Connexin 26 mRNA was transcribed, however, at a faster rate Ihan connexin 32 mRNA by nuclei isolated from both cellular fractions. Connexin 26 mRNA was transcribed a( 3.9 times the rate in nuclei from the peripor- tal than from the pericentral cells. These data suggest that while the zonation of con- nexin 26 rnRNA synthesis in liver appears to he controlled transcriptionally, post- transcriptional regulatory mechanisms determine the relative abundance of the con- nexin mRNAs.

We suggest that the liver has many parallels to other epithelial lineage systems such as epider- mis, intestine and hemopoiesis, in which matrix chemistry is altered in composition and quantity in a pattern that is lineage-position specific. New ultrastructural studies reveal a matrix gradient in the liver in the space of Disse.

Recent studies have indicated that e1F-4E acts as a protooncogene, but only in its phosphorylated state. In order to determine the role of e1F-4E in oncogenesis, we examined its regulation and expression in cloned rat embryo fibroblasts transformed with the Harvey ras (Ha- ras) oncogene. The expression of Ha-ras increased the rate of protein synthesis but did not increase the levels of eIF-4E mRNA or protein. However, a dramatic increase (7-fold) in phosphate incorporation into eIF-4E was observed. The percent- age of eIF-4E in the phosphorylated state was the same in transfected and control cells, indicating that both phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of e1F-4E were increased. Phosphopeptide mapping of e1F-4E from transformed cells indicated a single site of phosphorylation at Ser-53, which is the same as that identified previ- ously in eIF-4E from reticulocytes and HeLa cells. These results indicate that p21'" is part of the signal transduction pathway leading to phosphorylation of eIF-4E. These findings also provide a potential mechanism for cell transformation by p21'" which involves the preferential stimulation of translation of certain mRNAs. Rinker-Schaeffer, C.

T9Z000 IS 2iOa 1'RFiFERENTIAL TRANSLATION OF HEA"I' SHOCK mRNAs IN HeLa CELI S I)I?FI('IEN"1' IN PROTEIN SYNTHESIS INITIATION FACTORS cIF-4E \O M ~ AND eIF-4y ~ Expression of antisense RNA against eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF-4E) in HcLa cells causes a reduction in the levels of both e1F-4E and eIF-4y (p220) and a concomitant decrease in the rates of both cell growth and protein syn- thesis (Dc Benedetti, A., Joshi-Barve, S., Rinker-Schaffer, C., and Rhoads, R. E. (1991) Mol. ('ell Biol. 11, 5435-5445). The synthesis of most proteins in the anti- sense RNA-expressing cells (AS cells) is decreased, but certain proteins continue to he synthcsized. In the present study, we identified many of these as stress-inducible or ccat shock proteins (IISPs). By mohilities on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacryl- amide gel electrophoresis and by reactivity with monoclonal antibodies generated against human HSPs, four of these were shown to he HSP 90, HSP 70. HSP 65, and IISI' 27. The steady-state levels of HSP 90. 7(l, and 27 were elevated in relation to total protein in AS cells. Pulse labeling and immunoprccipitation indicated that HSP 90 and 11SP 7(/ were synthesized more rapidly in AS cells than in control cells. The accelerated synthesis of' HSPs in the AS cells was not due, however, to increased mRNA levels: the levels of 11SP 90 and 70 mRNAs either remained the same or decreased afier induction of antisense RNA expression. Actin mRNA, a typical cel- lular mRNA, was found on high polysomes in control cells hut shifted to smaller pnlysomes in AS cells, as expected from (he general decrease in translational initia- tion caused by cIF-4E and eIF-4y depletion. HSP 90 and 70 mRNAs showed the opposite behavior: they were associated with small polysomes in control cells hut shifted to higher polysomes in AS cells. These results demonstrate that HSP mRNAs have little or no requirement in riro for the cap-recognition machinery and suggest that these mRNAs may utilize an alternative, cap-independent mechanism of transla- tional initiation.

A RAPID ANI) RELIABLE METHOI) FOR THE PURIFICATION OF HIGH- QUALI'I'Y PLASMID 1)NA FOR DOUBLE-STRANDED SEQUENCING Double-stranded dideoxy DNA sequencing is becoming an increasingly popular method by which to sequence DNA templates. However. the success of this method is largely depcndent upon the purity of Ihe I)NA template to be sequenced. To resolve these difficulties. we devised a rapid and reliable method for isolating and purifying plasmid DNA as a template for dideoxy sequencing. This procedure requires less than two hours to perform and consistently provides 10-20 µg of seyuencing-yuality pl,asmid DNA without phenol: chloroform:isoamy) alcohol extractions or precipitations in polyethylene glycol and ethanol.

EFFECTS OF CELL DENSITY AND PHORBOL ESTERS ON THE EXPRESSION OF EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTORS Previously, it has been shown that the binding of epidermal growth factor (EGF) by a wide range of cells decreases as cell density increases. In this report, we demon- strate that KB cells treated chronically with phorbol esters continue to exhibit decreases in EGF receptor binding as cell density increases. This finding suggests that protein kinase-C may not be essential for density-induced down regulation of EGF receptors, since phorbol esters are known to down regulate protein kinase-C. We also report that short-term and long-term effects of phorbol esters on the binding of EGF are affected by density. As shown previously for several cell lines, the phor- bol ester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-l3-acetate transiently reduces EGF binding. We now show that the magnitude of this reduction diminishes as cell density increases. In addition, we determined that long-term treatment of KB cells with phorbol ester increases EGF binding. Again, this effect is diminished at high cell densities. Finally, we report that the increases in EGF binding induced by long-term treatment with phorbol esters are due to increases in the number of EGF receptors.

STIMULUS-DEPF,NDENT RELOCATION OF THE MICROTUBULE ORGANIZING ('fiNTER IN HUMAN POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LFUKO('YTI:S Polymorphonuclear Ieukocytes (PMNs) exhibit extensive directional migration (chemotaxis) and phagocylic activities. We have developed an in vitro model to eval- uate the organization of the microtubule organizing center (MTOC) in PMNs as the latter interact with various substrata, including immobilized antigen-antibody com- plexes. PMNs were layered on poly-L-lysine substrata containing ferritin (PL+F) or ferritin-antiferritin complex (PL+F+AF) and the location of MTOCs was determined by indirect immunofluorescence of tubulin using conventional epifluorescence microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The MTOCs in the majority of the PMNs attached to PL+F occupied an apical location (81.29% ± 3.34%), while in the majority of PMNs layered onto PL+F+AF, a basal location (79.37% ± 5.26%) was observed. Following disruption of microtubules (MTs) by nocodazole before layering the cells on the substrata, the proportions of PMNs with apical MTOCs were 65.2% ± 6.27% for PL+F and 47.2% ± 4.1% for PL+F+AF substrata, while the proportions of PMNs with basal MTOCs were 26.11% ± 8.89% for PL+F and 39.6% ± 4.4 for PL+F+AF substrata. The results indicate that MTOCs in human PMNs in ritro (i) occupied a°pre-defined" apical location; (ii) translocated to a "newly defined" basal location upon stimulation with immobilized antigen-antibody com- plex; (iii) and depended on intact MTs for placement of MTOCS in both situations.

DESIGN OF MODIFIED PYRROLINE N-OXIDE DERIVATIVES AS SPIN TRAPS SPECIFIC FOR HYDROXYL RADICAL Nitrones, 4-(2-(ethoxycarbc)nyl)elhyll-3,3,5,5-tetramethyl-I-pyrroline N-oxide (7a) and 4-12-(ethoxycarbonyl)ethyl l-5,5-di(JIH,Jmethyl)-3,3-dimethyl-I-pyrrolidine N-oxide (7b) have been synthesized. The ability of the nitrone (7a) to spin trap hydroxyl and superoxide radicals has been compared with nitrones lla and 5,5- dimethyl-I-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO, 8). Nitrone l la bears a carbelhoxy group at C-4, whereas nitrone 7a has a spacer of two methylene units between the carbethoxy and the basic nitrone ring skeleton. Nitrone Ila trapped both hydroxyl and superox- ide radicals, while nitrone 7a trapped only hydroxyl radical. The hydroxyl radical adducts of 7a and I la were more resistant toward superoxide-mediated reduction than the hydroxyl radical adduct of DMPO (8). Arya, P., Stephens. J C., Griller, D..

THE MYOSIN LIGHT CHAIN ENHANCER AND THE SKELETAL ACTIN PROMOTER SHARE A BINDING SITE FOR FACTORS INVOLVED IN MUSCLE-SPECIFIC GENE EXPRESSION The myosin light chain (MLC)1/3 enhancer (MLC enhancer), identified at the 3' end of the skeletal MLC'1/3 locus, contains a sequence motif that is homologous to a protein-binding site of the skeletal muscle a-actin promoter. Gel shift, competition, and footprint assays demonstrated that a CArG motif in the MLC enhancer binds Ihe proteins MAPFI and MAPF2, previously identified as factors interacting with the muscle regulatory element of the skeletal a-actin promoter. Transient transfection assays with constructs containing the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase reporter gene demonstrated that a I I5-bp suhfragment of the MLC enhancer is able to exert promoter activity when provided with a silent nonmuscle TATA box. A point muta- tion at the MAPFI/2-binding site interferes with factor binding and abolishes the promoter activity of the 115-bp fragment. The observation that an oligonucleotide encompassing the MAPFI/2 site of the MLC enhancer alone cannot serve as a pro- moter element suggests that additional factor-binding sites are necessary for this function. The finding that MAPFI and MAPF2 recognize similar sequence motifs in Iwo muscle genes, simultaneously activated during muscle differentiation, implies that these factors may have a role in coordinating the activation of contractile protein gene expression during myogenesis.

EFFECT OF INTF.RCLONAL HETEROGENEITY ON THE PROGRESSIVE, CONFLUENCE-MI:DIATED ACQUISITION OF THE FOCUS-FORMING PHENOTYPE IN NIH-3T3 POPULATIONS Confluence is an agent that promotes the progressive acquisition of the focus forming phenotype in clones of cells within NIH-3T3 populations. This conclusion is based on ('our results. (a) Even in cultures which have been confluent for more than 2 weeks without making foci, some cells in those cultures have been affected by the confluent state and will make foci if replated and allowed to grow into new saturated cultures. Because replicate dishes are very similar in the number and type of foci formed after replating, we conclude that the progression toward focus formation is substantially completed before replating, while the cells are in their original contlu- ent cultures. (h) Diffcrent NIH-3T3 populations were produced by expansion of small or large numbers of starting cells. When plated without exposure to confluence there was little difference in focus production among cells from these different sized starter P populations. However, confluence caused foci to arise more frequently in platings ol 10' cells derived from large starting numbers than from platings of 10' cells derived from small starting numbers of cells. This implies that the confluent state successful- ly promotes the acquisition of the focus forming phenotype in a limited percentage of cells in an NIH-3T3 culture and that those cells are absent from many small starting populations. (c) There is a progressive temporal effect of the confluent state on focus formation; the number and density of foci that emerge from replated confluent cul- tures increase with the length of time the cells spend in the confluent state. (d) There is heterogeneity among different batches of NIH-3T3 cells in the ability of the con- fluent state to induce acquisition of the focus forming phenotype. Also, the morphol- ogy of the foci that do arise after confluent treatment differs substantially among cell populations. Nonetheless, the foci formed from a single batch of cells are typically similar in morphology, indicating that those foci arose from one clone, or very few clones, of cells. Gmndel, R. and Rubin, H.

HUMAN NUCLEOTIDE EXCISION NUCLEASE REMOVES THYMINE DIMERS FROM DNA BY INCISING THE 22ND PHOSPHODIESTER BOND 5' AND THE 6TH PHOSPHODIESTER BOND 3' TO THE PHOTODIMER By using a human cell-free svstem capable of nucleotide excision repair, a syn- thetic substrate consisting of a plasmid containing four thymine dimers at unique locations, and deoxyribonucleoside 5'-[a-thioJtriphosphates for repair synthesis, we obtained DNA fragments containing repair patches with phosphorothioate linkages. Based on the resistance of these linkages to digestion by exonuclease III and their sensitivity to cleavage by Ia, we were able to delineate the borders of the repair patch to single-nucleotide resolution and found an asymmetric patch with sharp bound- aries. That the repair patch was produced by filling in a gap generated by an excision nuclease and not by nick-translation was confirmed by the f-inding that the thymidine dimer was released in a 27- to 29-nucleotide oligomer.

THE REPAIR OF UV-DAMAGED DNA In Ihis review we have summarized our current understanding of UV damage to DNA and the three pathways for the repair of UV-induced DNA damage: direct reversal mediated by photolyase, base excision repair, and nucleotide excision repair. All three pathways arc well characterized in F.. coli. We have devoted consid- erable space to nucleoticle excision rcpair, as this pathway is implicated in the repair of all types of l1V-incluccd damage as well as the repair of lesions induced by other physical and chemical agents. We rely heavily on review articles for many of the results published prior to 1989 and, with apologies to Ihe scientists responsible for Ihis work, we direct our readers to the cited reviews for the complete references to Ihe appropriate research articles. Some of the more exciting advances in the past few years have involved the elucidation of the reaction mechanisms of photolyase and pyrimidine dimer glycosylase-endonuclease at Ihe mechanistic level and the realiza- tion of Ihe stepwisc recognition mechanism of (A)BC excinuclease. Equally exciting has been the discovery of iranscription-stimulated strand selective repair. The field of nucleotide excision repair in eukaryotic organisms remains an area of great chal- lenge and promise. We expect major breakthroughs in this area in the near future. Reardon, J .

Many mRNAs in Drn.ccrphila contain long 5'-noncoding regions with apparently unused AUG ccxlons, suggesting that internal rihosomc binding may be a common mechanism of translational initia- tion, :mcl possibly its regulation, in l)ro.cnphila.

TRANSLATIONAL ENHANCEMENT OF THE POLIOVIRUS 5' NONCODING REGION MEDIATED BY VIRUS-ENCODED POLYPEPTIDE 2A Genetic and biochemical studies have revealed that the 5' noncoding region of poliovirus mediates translation of the viral mRNA by an unusual mechanism involv- ing entry of ribosomes in internal sequences of mRNA molecules. We have found that mRNAs bearing the 5' non-coding region of poliovirus were translated at an enhanced rate in poliovirus-infected mammalian celis at a time when translation of cellular mRNAs was not yet inhibited. This translational enhancement of the poliovi- ral 5' noncoding region was mediated by the expression of encoded polypeptide 2A. This indicates that 2A is a multifunctional protein involved directly or indirectly in the activation of viral mRNA translation, in addition to its known roles in viral polyprotein processing and in inhibition of cellular protein synthesis. Thus, 2A rep- resents an activator of translation of a viral mRNA that is translated by an internal ribosome binding mechanism. A likely consequence of this role of 2A is the efficient translation of viral mRNAs early in the infectious cycle, when host cell mRNAs can still compete with viral mRNAs for the host cell translation apparatus.

MOLECULAR ASPECTS OF REGENERATION IN DEVELOPING VERTEBRATE LIMBS We review embryological as well as molecular evidence that emphasizes the idea that both the regenerate and the developing vertebrate limb bud utilize a similar set of signals that regulate pattern formation. Evidence is presented to implicate the Hox-7.I gene in the developmental regulation of growth, differentiation, and posi- tional assignment during progress zonc during limb outgrowth. Finally, we review the limited information known about the regenerative capabilities of limb buds in organisms that cannot regenerate as adults. We contend that a solution to the prob- Icm of regenerative failure among higher vertebrates will come progressively 188 189

Mtiox: A MESODERMALLY RESTRICTED HOMEODOMAIN PROTEIN THAT BINDS AN ESSENTIAL SITE IN THE MUSCLE CREATINE KINASE ENHANCFR Myogenic helix-loop-helix (HLH) proteins, such as myogenin and MyoD, can activate muscle-specific transcription when introduced into a variety of nonmuscle cell types. Whereas cells of mesodermal origin are expecially permissive to the actions of these myogenic regulators, many other cell types are refractory to myo- genic conversion by them. Here we describe a novel homeodomain protein. MHox, that hinds an A-T-rich element in Ihe muscle creatine kinase (MCK) enhancer that is essential for muscle-specific transcription and trans-activation by myogenic HLH proteins. MHox is completely restricted to mesodermally derived cell types during emhryogenesis and to established cell lines of mesodermal origin. In contrast to most other homeolxix genes, MHox expression is excluded from the nervous system, with the highest levels observed in limb bud and visceral arches. In adult mice, MHox is expressed at high levels in skeletal muscle, heart and uterus. The DNA-binding prop- erties and pattern of MHox expression are unique among homeolmx genes and sug- gest a role for MIlox as a transcriptional regulator that participates in the establish- ment of diverse mesodermal cell types.

A TRANSGENE TARGET FOR POSITIONAL REGULATORS MARKS EARLY ROSTROC'AUDAL SPECIFICATION OF MYOGENIC LINEAGES In transgenic mice, muscle-specific regulatory elements from the myosin light chain (ML(') 1/3 locus drive graded expression of a linked CAT reporter gene in 190 selected fast muscles along the anteroposterior axis of the adult animal. The gradient of MLC-CAT transcripts is established early in development, during the generation of somites from the paraxial mesoderm and the activation of myogenic factor gene expression, and is not reflected in the expression of the endogenous MLCI gene. At later embryonic stages, the gradient of MLC-CAT transcripts persists in intercostal and intervertebral muscles, but is not maintained in other axial muscles. Profiles of CAT transgene activity reveal that the gradient is generated during the maturation of increasingly caudal somites, opposite to the direction of somite development, and is retained in dissociated somite cultures. We propose that coexpression of myogenic factors is necessary but not sufficient to regulate expression of the MLC-CAT trans- gene, which is responsive to additional positional cues in the embryo.

A defined medium supporting the proliferation and differentiation of adi- pocyte precursors isolated from inguinal fat pads of 8-12-day-old mice was devel- oped. 2. It consists of a I:1 mixture of DME and WAJC404A media supplemented with insulin (10 µg/mI), transferrin (10 µg/ml), fibroblast growth factor (10 ng/ml) and high density lipoproteins (HDL) (90 µg protein/mI). 3. DME-F12 medium (1:1 mixture) used as a nutrient mixture in the defined medium of rat and human adipocyte precursors was inadequate for cultivating mouse adipocyte precursors. 4. HDL had a definite beneficial effect on both preadipocyte growth and differ- entiation. 5. Differentiation was enhanced by addition of dexamethasone (10 "M) but could be almost completely inhibited by transforming growth factor (31 (TGF-(31). 6. TGF-/31 was shown to he effective only when present in the early stages of differentiation. Litthauer, D. and Serrero, G. Comparative Biochemistry and Phyiology 101 A( I):59-64, 1992.

PROSTAGLANDIN F2« INHIBITS TfIF, DIFFERENTIATION OF ADIPOCYTE PRECURSORS IN PRIMARY CULTURE Influence of arachidonate metabolite pathway on adipose differentiation was investigated using primary culture of adipocyte precursors in defined medium. Treatment of the cells with cyclooxygenase inhibitors stimulates adipose dfferentia- lion by at least 2-fold. Anong the various arachidonate metabolites tested, only prostaglandin F,, (PGF,.,) was found to inhibit Ihe differentiation of adipocyte precur- sors in a (lose dependent fashion. Other eicosanoids tested did not have any effect. A 50% inhibition of adipose differentiation was observed with a dose of PGF,,, of 3x 10"M to 7x 10"M according to the strain of rats used. Maximal inhibition occurred at PGF,, concenlrations equal or higher than 10"M. PGF,,, inhibited not only the expression of late markers of adipose differentiation such as G3PDH and triglycerides accumula- tion but also Ihe mRNA expression of early markers of adipose differentiation such as clone 154, lipoprotein lipase and ap2 gene. These results indicate that PGF, repre- sents a physiological negative modulator of adipose differentiation. Serrero. G., L.epak, N. M., and Goodrich, S. P.

MOLE('ULAR ('LONING OF A DIFFI;REN'I'IATION-REE,ATED mRNA IN THE ADIPOGENICC'ELI, LINE 1246 The 1246 cell line is a C3H mouse Icratoma-derivcd adipngenic cell line that can proliferate and di/7erentiate in defincd medium. We have constructed a recombinant phage library containing complementary DNAs (cl)NAs) prepared from mRNA of diflcrentiated 1246 cclls. This lihrary was screened using a differential hybridization technique. We have isolated live different cDNA clones corresponding to mRNAs that are induced during adipogenesis of 1246 cells and one cDNA clone correspimd- ing lo mRNA that is decreased chiring adipogenesis. Among the mRNAs expressed during adiposc differentiation, some are not expressed in undifferentialed cells, whereas sonic are expressed at very low levels under these conditions. Moreover, the level of' induction during differentiation and the temporal expression of the mRNAs corresponding to Ihetie cDNAs varied. Our results indicate lhat one af the cDNA clones isolated, called 154, which sclecls a 2.2-kilohase mRHA, was induced I(K)- fnld at a very early tinu during the onset nf Ihe differentiation program in 1246 cells and also in adipix.yte precursors in primary culture. t)irect sequencing of 154 cDNA insert revealed no homology with sequences in Genl3ank and PIR protein databases. The expression of 154 mRNA was stimulated by accelerators of differcntiation such a% dexamethasnne and isobutylmethylxanthinc and inhibited by tumor necrosis factor (r. Iran.fnrming growth factor f3. and cpidernial growth factor, which arc known inhibitors of 1246 cell differentiation. In addition, 154 mRNA level in adipoxytcs was down-regulated by tumor necrosis factor ot. hut not by transforming growth factor (3 or epidermal growth factor. These results suggest that the increase in 154 mRNA expression is related to the onset of adipose differentiation. Further analysis of this clone should allow characterization of a novel protein induced early during the process of'differentiation. Jiang, H.-P., Harris, S. E., and Serrero. G.

ADIPOGENIC ACTIVITY PRODUCED BY HEPATOCYTE-DERIVED CELL LINES AND BY NORMAL HEPATOCYTES IN PRIMARY CULTURE Culture media conditioned by several hepatocyte derived cell lines were ana- lyzed for their ability to stimulate adipose differentiation of the adipogenic cell line 1246. The results presented here show that culture media from HcpG2 and Hcp3B cell lines contain a high level of Ihe activity, whereas media from hepatoma and hepato adencxarcinoma cell lines Huh-7. PLC/PRF/5, and SK-Hep-I do not contain adipogenic aclivity. Conditioned medium from HepG2 cells also stimulated differen- liation of iT3-L, cells and of rat epididymal adipoc:ytc precursors in primary culture. Partial biochemical characterization of the adipogenic activity carried out using HepG2 conditioned medium indicates that the hepaloc:yte derived adipogenic faiclor has an apparent molecular weight between 445 and 232 kDa, is destroyed by treat- menl at I(NP"C, with protease, with 2-mercapUmthanol and in acidic conditions. The activity is stable at alkaline pH. Culture media conditioned by normal rat hcpato- cytes in primary culture also conlained adipogenic activity. In contrast, medium con- ditioned by primary culture of nonhepatocyte cells also isolated from liver was deprived of this activity.

As measured hy radioimmunoassay, apoTf plus T, induced Gil levels 2 to 4-fold above controls. Deletion of either apoTf or T, arrested GH secretion. ApoTI'/l', defined medium regulated GH production as effectively as whole serum. Because gfucocnrticoids enhance GH secretion in serum containing cultures, the effects of dexanuthasonc were evaluated in apoTpT, defined medium. The steroid hormone showed no enhancing effects unless the cells were exposed to serum prior to incubation in apoi 17/I', defined medium. Even under these conditions, the response to dcxamethasonc remained T, dependent. These observations indicate that a yet to he charactcrircd serum factor(s), other than apoTf, regulates (he reponse to the steroid honnone.

APOTRANSFERRINS FROM SEVERAL SPECIES PROMOTE THYROID HORMONE-DEPENDENT RAT PITUITARY TUMOR CELL GROWTH IN IRON-RESTRICTED SERUM-FREE DEFINED CULTURE Previously, we have studied thyroid hormone-dependent growth of GH, rat pitu- itary tumor cells in iron-restricted serum-free defined medium (Sirbasku, D. A., et al. (1991) Biochemistry 30, 295-304, 7466-7477). Proliferation was promoted by tri- iodothyronine (T) and any of seven forms of horse serum-derived apotransfen•in (apoTf). In this report, we have asked if apoTfs from other species also acted as thy- romedins and if other metal ion chelalors served this role. To address these issues, three thyromedins were isolated from human serum and identified as apoTf. Fe" depletion, and assay in low-Fe medium, gave ED,~s of 1.4-1.7 nM.Fe" saturation abolished their activities in high-Fe medium. To ask if apoTf was the major thy- romedin in human serum, hormone-depleted preparations were iron saturated and shown to no longer support T dependent GH, cell growth. Next, commercially pre- pared human, rat, horse, dog, rabbit, guinea pig and mouse apoTfs were shown to be as active under iron-restricted conditions as those isolated from human serum. Bovine apoTf and colostrum lactoferrin were > 100-fold less active: human milk apo-lactoferrin and apo-ovotransferrins were inactive. Transferrins which displayed thyromedin activity blocked the binding of "'1-rat 2Fe • Tf to GH, cell receptors while those without thyromedin activity were ineffective. Finally, the metal ion chelators EDTA, cilrate and deferoxamine did not show thyromedin activity indical- ing that apoTfs uniquely were able to promote T,-dependent cell growth in defined culture.

PREPARATION OF IRON-DEFICIENT TISSUE CULTURE MEDIUM BY DEFEROXAMINE-SEPHAROSE TREATMENT AND APPLICATION TO THE DIFFERENTIAL ACTIONS OF APOTRANSFERRIN AND DIFERRIC TRANSFERRIN We have shown that Iriirxiothyronine-dependent GH rat pituitary cell growth in serum-free defined culture required apotransferrin (apcif1) (D. A. Sirhasku, el al., Biochemistry 30, 295-aO4, 7466-7477, 1991). These studies were done in "low-Fe" medium without Fe(III)/Fe(II) salts. Nonetheless, significant concentrations of iron may have been contributed by other components, making this medium unsuitable for study of (he differential effects of apoTf and diferric transferrin (2Fe•Tn. Measuring residual iron in culture medium has been troublesome because (he most sensitive method (i.e.. atomic absorption) detccted levels only in excess of 10 ng/ml and did no( distinguish between the forms of iron present. To estimate the Fe(III) available to hind to apoTf, we developed a more sensitive and specific method. Urea-polyacry- 194 1 195

ME('HANISM OF HUMAN METHYL-DIRECTED DNA METHYLTRANSFERASE AND'1'HE FIDELITY OF CYTOSINE (v1ETHYLATION The properties of the methyl-dirccted DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase (EC 2.1.1.37) suggest that it is the enzyme that maintains patterns of inethylation in thc human genome. Proposals for the enzyme's mechanism of action suggest that 5- methyldeoxycylidine is produced from deoxycytidine via a dihydmcytosine intenne- diate. We have used an oligcxleoxynuclcotide containing 5-tluonxlcoxycytidinc as a suicide substrate to capture the enzyme and the dihydrocytosine intermediate. Gcl retardation experiments demonstrate the formation of the expected covalent complex between duplex DNA containing 5-Iluorodeoxycytidine and the human enzyme. Formation of the complex was dependent upon the presence of the methyl donor S- adenosylmethionine, suggesting that it comprises an enzyme-linked 5-substitutcd dihydrocytosine moiety in DNA. Dihydrocytosine derivatives are extremely labile toward hydrolytic deamination in aqueous solution. Because C-to-T transition muta- tions are especially prevalent at CG sites in human DNA, we have used high-perfor- mance liquid chromatography to search for thymidine that might he generated by hydrolysis during the methyl transfer reaction. Despite the potential for deamination inherent in the formation of the intermediate, the methyltransferase did not produce detectable amounts of thymidine. The data suggest that the ability of the human methyltransferase to preserve genetic information when copying a methylation pat- tern (i.e., its fidelity) is comparable to the ability of a mammalian DNA polymerase to preserve genetic information when copying a DNA sequence. Thus, the high fre- quency of ('-to-T transitions at CG sites in human DNA does not appear to hc due to the normal enzymatic maintenance of methylation patterns. ,Saritlr, S. S.. Kaplan, B. E..

HYPOXIA-INDUCF.D INCREASED PERMEABILITY OF ENDOTHELIAL MONOLAYERS OCCURS 7'HROIJGH LOWERING OF CELLULAR cAMP LEVELS Prolonged exposure to hypoxia, as at high altitude, results in increased vascular permeability that may be ameliorated by administration of glucocorticoids. To under- stand mechanisms underlying these observations, cultured bovine aortic and pul- monary artery endothelial cells (ECs) were subjected to hypoxia, and changes in monolayer permeability and adenosine 3',5' -cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) levels were assessed. Exposure of fmth types of cultured ECs to hypoxia (PO --14 Torr) Icd to a time- and dose-depcndent increase in monolayer permeability, as measured by diffusion of radiolabeled sotutcs, which was associated with a progressive decrease in F,C cAMP levels from (9) to 15 pmol/mg protein, and a decrease in EC atlenylate cyclase activity. The change in endothclial barcier function was prevented by addi- lion of cAMP analogues. Pertussis toxin protected EC monolayers from hypoxia- mediated increase in permeability while maintaining cAMP levels and adcnylate cyclase activity. Addition of dcxamcthasone to E(' monolayers before or simultanc- ously with their incubation under hypoxic conditions blocked the hypoxia-mediated increase in monolayer permeability. Dexamethasone pretreatment also prevented (he decline in cAMP and adenylate cyclasc levels in oxygen-deprived cultures. These data indicate that hypoxia decreases F..C harrier function by lowering adenylatc cyclase activity and cellular cAMP levels. They suggest that dexamethasone may exert its protective effect, in part, by preventing the hypoxia-induced decline in adenylate cyclase activity, leading to an increase in cellular cAMP and maintenance of EC harrier function.

Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized in mammals where it acts as a signal molecule for neurotransmission, vasorelaxation, and cytotoxicity. The NO synthases isolated from brain and cylokinc-activatcd macrophages are FAD- and FMN-containing Ilavoproteins that display considerable sequence homology to NADPH-cytoc:hromc 1'-450 reductasc. However, the nature of their catalytic centers is unknown. We have Rotmd that both isucnzymcs contain 2 mol of iran-protoporphyrin IX/mol of enzyme homodimer. The optical and EPR spectroscopic properties of the hcme groups were found to be remarkably similar to those of high-spin cyt(xhrome P-450. The heme iron in the resting NO synthase is ferric and five-coordina(e with a cystcine Ihiolate as the proximal axial ligand. In addition, the EPR spectra of the resting NO syn- thases contained a free radical signal attributable to a bound flavin semiyuinone that appeared to interact magnetically with the ferric hetne iron. NO production was inhibited by carbon monoxide, implying a role for the heme groups in catalysis.

We describe evidence that DNA sequences from vectors used for cloning and sequencing have been incorporated accidentally into eukaryotic entries in the GenBank database. These incorporations were not restricted to one type of vector or to a single mechanism. Many minor instances may have been the result of simple editing errors, but some entries contained large blocks of vector sequence that had been incorporated by contamination or other accidents during cloning. Some cases involved unusual rearrangements and areas of vector distant from the normal inser- tion sites. Matches to vector were found in 0.23% of 20,000 sequences analyzed in GenBank Release 63. Although (he possibility of anomalous sequence incorporation has been recognized since the inception of GenBank and should be easy to avoid, recent evidence suggests that this problem is increasing more quickly (han the data- base ilsclf. The presence of anomalous sequence may have serious consequences for the interpretation and use of database entries, and will have an impact on issues of database management.

IIL-60 human promyclocylic Icukemia cells were induced to undergo myclnid or monncytic terminal cell differentiation by these agents. To investigate the potential coupling between down-regulation of RB and c-myc onco- gene expression with cell differentiation, dose response relationships for the induced down-regulation of' RB and c-myc expression were compared with each other and with induced cell differentiation. The total amount of RB protein per cell increased as cells advanced through the cell cycle, but the amount of RB protein relative to the total cell mass remained approximately, constant. Treated with RA or VD, an early progressive decrease in cellular content of the RB protein occurred in all cell cycle phases well before any cell cycle modulation or phenotypic dilTerentiation. For a dif- fcrentiation-defective variant I-ll. CiO cell line, failure to differentiate was preceded by a failure to down-regulate cellular levels of the RB protein. In dose response experiments, progressively increasing RA or VD concentrations caused progressive- ly greater reductions in RB as well as c-myc expression with an increasing fraction of cells terminally differentiating. For both RA and VL), the dose response relation- ships for reductions in RB and c-myc expression were similar, suggesting that their down-regulation may be coupled. These observations are consistent with a model whereby RB expression acts as a cellular brake to sustain a developmentally ordained statc of differentiation (i.e., preserve the "status quo"): and the down-regu- lation of heterogeneously distributed RB protein per cell below a threshold is part of' the metabolic cascade cuhninating in terminal cell diffcrentiaticw. Thus. RB may have a role in this developmental context. Yen. A., Chandler, S.. Forhes, M. E?., Fung, Y.-K., T'Ang, A.. and Pearson. R. Burapcan Journal of Cell Biology 57:210-221, 1992.

Bromodeoxyuridine. which induces proliferative arrest but not phenotypic differenti- ation of these cells, induced the same course of c-myb expression as the inducers of terminal differentiation. The same course of c-myb expression with growth arrest induced by these three different means is consistent with a potential proliferation regulatory role for c-myb in late but not early events leading to terminal differentia- tion. The dynamics of c-myb expression during this process were qualitatively, but not quantitatively, similar to the course of c-fos expression. Thus, taken with previ- ous results, then amongst the nuclear oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes, c-myc, RB, c-fos, and c-myb, only c-myc and RB expression exhibit early regulation during induced HL-60 cell differentiation.

Immunology and Adaptive Mechanisms INHIBITION OF NEUTROPHIL CHEMOTAXIS AND ACTIVATION FOLLOWING DEC'ENTRALIZATION OFTHE SUPERIOR ('ERVIC'A1. GANGLIA Recent studies have shown that bilateral decentralization (sympathectomy) of the superior cervical ganglia (SCG) of rats sensitized to the parasite NippnstrnnRylus hrasiliensis attenuated the development of pulmonary inflammation following aller- gen challenge. Syrnpathectomy inhibited total leukocyte infiltration into lung lavage fluids, particularly neutrophil infiltration. To define the effects of decentralization of the SCG on neutrophil responses, peripheral blood neutrophils of rats were isolated and lested in in vitro chemotaxis and phagocytosis assays. Neulrophils from rats that were sympathectomized 7 (lays previously displayed a marked reduction in chemo- taxis to N-formyl-methionyl-leucylphenylalanine and leukotriene B, compared to neutrophils from sham-operated or unoperated groups. Although the degree of chemotaxis was greater in blood neutrophils from parasile-infected rats than from uninfecled rats, sympathectomy markedly reduced the chemotactic responses of both groups. In addition, nculrophils of sympalhectomized rats were unresponsive to lipopolysaccharide-induced mctabolic activation as assessed by in vitro phagocytosis and oxidative reduction of nitroblue tetrazolium. Thus, decentralization of the SCG of rats affects the chemotactic responses and functions of neutrophils. Understanding the role of the sympathetic nervous system in modulating the behavior of neutrophils will shed light on the interactions between the nervous and immune systems. Carter, L., Ferrari, J.

PHENTOLAMINE BUT NOT PROPRANOLOL BLOCKS THE IMMUNOPOTENTIATING EFFECT OF COLD STRESS ON ANTIGEN- SPECIFIC IgM PRODUCTION IN MICE ORALLY IMMUNIZED WITH SHEEP RED BLOOD CELLS The effect of cold stress on immunocompetence was investigated in mice intra- gastrically intubated with sheep red blood cells. Cold stress was found to consistently augment total IgG and IgM production by splenic lymphocytes. In addition, antigen- specific IgM production by cultured splenic lymphocytes obtained from cold stressed animals was enhanced compared to unstressed mice. However, serum levels of total and antigen-specific immunoglobulins were suppressed or unaltered following cold stress. The a-adrenoceptor antagonist, phentolamine, could block the effects mediat- ed by cold stress while the (3-adrenoceptor antagonist, propranolol, potentiated the action of cold stress. Taken together, the data indicate cold stress-mediated enhance- ment in immunoglobulin production by orally immunized animals takes place through the activation of a-adrenergic pathways. The results also suggest a- and a- adrenergic pathways independently regulate antibody production following oral administration of antigen. These observations illustrate the integrative nature of the immune and neuroendocrine systems. Carr, D. J. J., Woolley, T. W., and Blalock, J. E. Brain Behavior and Immunity 6:50-63, 1992.

SELF-REACTIVE REPERTOIRE OF TIGHT SKIN (TSK/+) MOUSE: IMMUNOCHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF ANTI-CELLULAR AUTOANTIBODIES The tight skin (TSK/+) mouse has been proposed as an experimental model for progressive systemic sclerosis because of the biochemical alterations in collagen synthesis and pathological similarities to the human disease.

autoantihodies and determination of the frequency of hybridomas producing anti-cel- lular autoantibodies. The binding specificity of TSK mAbs to nuclear and cytoplas- mic antigens such as keratin, actin, vimentin, and mitochondria was determined. Of 71 monoclonal antibodies that we have studied, only 3 appear to bind to foreign as well as sel('-antigens, indicating that the majority of these antibodies do not belong to the class of natural autoantibodics. Our results also showed that the frequency of hybridomas producing anti-nuclear and anti-cytoplasmic antibodies was higher in TSK mice than in C57BL/6 pa/pa, the control mouse strain, used in these studies. The results of the analysis of V gene usage showed that the majority of anti-cyto- plasmic and anti-nuclear antibodies are encoded by genes from a restricted number of V,, and VK genes families. In the sera of TSK mice we have detected the presence of autoantibodies specific for cytoplasmic antigens in addition to anti-nuclear and antitopoisomerase I antibodies which are characteristic of scleroderma. Since the presence of anti-cytoplasmic antibodies has not been described in scleroderma, the significance of their production in tight skin mice is not clear. However, the presence of such autoantitodies in the animal model provides a basis for investigation of this type of antibodies in human disease.

The V genes from 3' end V,gene families and certain V. gene families are relatively over- expressed during necinatal development but usage of VI and V gene families nor- malizcs to random pattern in adults. At present it is not certain whether or not autoantibrxlies are encoded by a few restricted V genes. Analysis of the expression of V an V or V gene repertoires in autoimmune animals is essential to determine whetber or not certain V genes are overexpressed in autoimmune diseases. Hence, a rapid, reliable and convenient method is essential. The currently available methods for such analysis: Northern blotting and sequence analysis of V genes expressed in hyhridomas or F;BV transformed B cell lines, in situ hybridization of LPS stimulated B cell colonies, and in silu RNA hybridization of differentiated B cells have limita- tions. First of all, isolating, maintaining and analyzing a large number B cell clones is time consuming. Secondly, EBV transformed B cell lines are unstable. Thirdly, in vitro culture methods introduce selection. We report here a novel method that is effi- cient. reliable and provides data reflecting the in rivn levels of individual V gene mRNAs expressed. Kasturi, K. and Bona, C. A.

ANTITOPOISOMERASE I MONOCLONAL AUTOANTIBODIES FROM SCLERODERMA PATIENTS AND TIGHT SKIN MOUSE INTERACT WITH SIMILAR EPITOPES We have generated for the first time monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) specific for topoisomerase I (topo I) from scleroderma patients, and tight skin mice which devel- op a scleroderma-Iike syndrome. The epitope specificity of these antibodies has been determined using a series of fusion proteins containing contiguous portions of topo I polypeptide. Western blot analysis demonstrated that both human and mouse mAbs bound strongly to fusion protein C encompassing the NHZ terminal portion of the enzyme, and weakly to fusion proteins F and G containing regions close to the COOH-terminal end of the molecule. This crossreactivity is related to a tripeptide sequence homology in F, G, and C fusion proteins. It is interesting that a pentapep- tide sequence homologous to that in fusion protein C was identified in the UL70 pro- tein of cytomegalovirus, suggesting that activation of autoreactive B cell clones by molecular mimicry is possible. Both human and mouse mAbs exhibiting the same antigen specificity, also share an interspecies cross-reactive idiotope. These data sug- gest that B cell clones producing antitopo autoantihodies present in human and mouse repertoire are conserved during phylogeny, and are activated during the development of scleroderma disease.

PRODUCTION OF HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS AND MODULATION OF THE INFECTIOUS PROGRAM IN EPITHELIAL RAFT CULTURES Human papiltomavinises trophic for anogenital epithelia cause benign warts, and certain genotypes are closely associated with cervical neoplasia. By using our 212 I 213
Page 109: xof92f00
modifications of the epithelial raft culture system, we were able to recapitulate and modulate the infectious program of a papillomavirus in vitro for the first time. Small pieces of a condyloma containing human papillomavirus type I I were explanted onto a dern)al equivalent consisting of a collagen matrix with fibroblasts and were cultured at the medium-air interface. The infected stem cells proliferated rapidly across the matrix, stratified, and differentiated, as judged by histology. The results correlated with the state of epithelial differentiation, which, in turn, was dependent on the type of fibroblast in the matrix. Under conditions where the epithelial out- growth underwent terminal differentiation, the entire productive program took place, leading to virion assembly. In contrast, using an alternative condition where the out- growth failed to achieve tenninal differentiation, only the E-region RNAs from the El promoter accumulated to any appreciable extent. The proliferating cell nuclear antigen was induced in the differentiated suprabasal cells in the productive cyst growth, which also exhibited high copy viral DNA and abundant E6-E7 RNAs. Comparable cells in the nonproductive cyst outgrowth were negative for all three. These results suggest that the E6 and E7 proteins may play a role in establishing a cellular environment conducive to vegetative viral replication. The culture condi- lions described should be useful for genetic analysis of this family of important human pathogens and for testing potential pharmacological agents. Dollard, S. C., Wilson, J.

HUMAN MONO('I.ONAL STRIATIONAL AUTOANTIBODIES ISOLATED FROM THYMI(' B LYMPHOCYTES OF PATIENTS WITH MYASTHENIA GRAVIS USE V,, ANI) V. GENE SEGMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH TIIE Alfi'OIMMUNE REPERTOIRE The prmluction of autoantihixlies reactive with components of skeletal muscle is characteristic of myasthenia gravis (MG) and is strongly associated with the presence of thymic epithclial tumors in patients with MG. The nucleotide sequences of the heavy and light chain variable regions (V„ and Vd of three human monoclonal striat- ed muscle antihodies (SIrAb) isolated from thymic B lymphocyte lines from two patients with MG and thymoma were analyzed. The V,) and V, gene segments used by these anti-striated muscle antibodies appear to be derrved from the same repertoire of gene segments as have been found in other autoantibodics isolated from patients with a number of different autoimmune diseases. While the IgM StrAb SA-IA is a direct copy of germ-line V,. and V, gene segments, an analysis of the IgG StrAb SA- 4A and SA-4B, which may be more representative of antib(xlies found in the serum of MG patients, suggests that the processes of antigenic selection and somatic muta- tion may contribute to the generation of autoantibodies in MG. 214 ~ ~ Victor, K.

Although we have not addressed the real forces which drive the preferential expression and/or selection of these V„ segments, the example of the V,, 4-21 gene segment makes us envision a hypothesis in which the repertoire of self-renewing B cells in the bone marrow is expanded before encountering the fine specific antigen that its "conventional" bind- ing sites recognizes, based on a broader, and very likely lower, affinity toward its own milieu, in this case represented by the contiguous pool of renewing red blood cells. It might well be that cells displaying high affinities are lolerized upon encounter with an overwhelming amount of antigen in the bone marrow. It might also happen that T cells control the ability of V„ 4-21-bearing B cells to proliferate and switch under normal circumstances, avoiding the generation of highly specific self antibodies. The preferential finding of a particular V„ gene expressed in the repertoire of human antibodies encoding very different specificities could simply be the reflection of how the potential repertoire is set: less diverse than we think, but undoubtedly extremely plastic. The absence of the same V„ gene in antibodies to exogenous anti- gens might indicate that tolerance is indeed an important factor in shaping the normal repertoire. Pascual, V. and Capra, J. 0.

firm and extend this observation we have analyzed at the nucleotide level the H and I, chains of six new cold agglutinin molecules derived from different patients. We f2wnd that regardless of whether the antibody recognizes the i or the I red cell Ag, restriction at the V,, gene segment level is absolute. We also found that even in the absence of somatic mutation, the V11 4-21 gene segment can encode both anti-i and anti-I specificities. Finally, although the V,, 4-21 gene segment is essential for cold agglutinin activity, the other genetic elements that contribute to the V region of the antiMidy molecules can be extremely diverse. The structural information provided in this report sharply restricts Ihe requirement for encoding pathogenic cold agglutinin activity to one of the components of the H chain V region, specifically (he VH gene segment. The implications of this apparently absolute requirement for a single V,, gene segment, unprecedented in the human autoimmune response, are discussed.

IgM RIIEUMA'fOID FACTORS IN PATIENTS WITH RHF,UMATOID ARTHRITIS DERIVE FROM A 1)IVERSE ARRAY OF GERMLINE IMM(JNOGLOBIII.IN CHiN1:S ANI) 1)ISPLAY LITTLE EVIDENCE OF SOMAT'I(' VARIATION Rheumatoid factors (RF) are present in the plasma of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) although the site of synthesis of most of these antibodies is within the synovium. This report primary concerns RF of the IgM isotype. While a few of the RF derive from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus or from normal individu- als, the remaining derive from the inflamed synovial tissue of patients with RA. Two RF are encoded by members of the V„I gene family, 8 from the V„3 family and 2 from the V„4 family. Two polyreaclive antibodies derive from the V„3 family and 2 come from thc V,,4 family. This distribution is not fundamentally different from the distributions seen in a large array of autoantibixties and antibodies to external anti- gens. Similarly, the light chains derive from most of the known kappa and lambda V, families. It is hard to escape the preliminary conclusion that gene segments from vir- tually any light chain variable region can contribute to RF or polyreactive antibody structures. Most IgM RF and polyreactive antibodies are direct copies of germline genes in one of their pnlypeptide chains or at most are 2 nucleotides away in one of their chain~ from a known gemiline gene.

NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE ANALYSIS OF RHEUMATOID FACTORS AND POLYREACTIVE ANTIBODIES DERIVED FROM PATIENTS WITH RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS REVEALS DIVERSE USE OF V„ AND V, GENE SEGMENTS AND EXTENSIVE VARIABILITY IN CDR-3 The heavy and light chain nucleotide sequences of 17 monoreactive and polyre- active rheumatoid factors largely derived from the inflamed synovial tissue of two patients with rheumatoid arthritis are described. Some of these sequences have been the subject of a previous report from our laboratories. Additionally, a few rheumatoid factors from the peripheral blood of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjogren's syndrome as well as a normal individual are included. A review of our pre- vious results as well as the new data provided within this paper lead to the following major conclusions: (I) Rheumatoid factors and polyreactive antibodies derive from a diverse array of V,, and V, gene segments; (2) While many rheumatoid factors and polyreactive antibodies are direct or nearly direct copies of germline genes, sonie show clear evidence of somatic mutation; (3) The CDR3 of all of these antibodies is extraordinarily diverse in length and composition. Certain "restrictions" do appear in this very large sample: (a) the polyreactive antibodies are exclusively lambda, and (b) there seems to be a preponderance of a particular subset of V,,3 genes beyond that one would expect based on random utilization.

SOME CAUTIONARY NOTES ON INTERPRETING IMMUNOGLOBULIN VARIABLE GENE SEGMENT RESTRICTION IN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE Since the development of molecular biological techniques and, in particular, the introduction and routine use Epstein-Ban- virus (EBV) transformation of human B lymphocytes, there has been an explosion of data concerning the utilization of vari- ous human V„ and V, gene segments in autoantibodies of diverse specificities. 216 1 217
Page 111: xof92f00
Although these data have provided critical information about the extent of the human immune receptor repertoire, as well as certain insights about mechanisms of antibody diversity, Ihere are some potential problems with interpreting them that need to be understocxl as additional information accumulates. Molecular biological techniques, particularly the synthesis of cDNAs and the use of the polymerase chain reaction to generate V„ and V, structures, have resulted in nearly 1(K) human autoantibcxly structures being sequenced at both the V„ and V, level. An area of considerable interest has been the interpretation of these data as they apply to re.etrictions in the V-gene usage in immune responses in certain dis- eases. The implications of this are obvious therapeutically, as should a single V,, or V, gene be utilized in Ihe vast majority of antibodies of a particular immune response, an avenue of therapy directed against such immune receptors would be opened. This chapter is intended to provide some areas for which caution should be exercised in these interprctations. It is quite possible that we know so little of why immunoglobulin genes rearrange in the first place and why certain gene segments are ulilized in particular responses Ihat much of Ihe available data and the insights that they provided may be misleading.

IIUMAN V GENE FAMILIES SHOW REMARKABLY LITTLE POLYMORPHISM After only a few human myeloma proteins were sequenced in the early 1960s, was it obvious that the human B cell repertoire displayed remarkable heterogeneity in that no two sequences were more than 85% identical. As murine proteins were sequenced in the late 1960s and early 1970s, more homogeneous structures were seen and, as an understanding of the V, D, and J gene segments became apparent, it was obvious that, although rare, occasionally two independently derived murine mycloma proteins would he found with identical V,, regions. At the present time, with well over 3(X) human and murine myelomas and hybridomas sequenced, it is still very unusual to find two V„ regions that are identical. Viewed in this light, the human V,, genes appear no different than the human genes for any gene family, be they pancreatic clastases, albumin, globin, or the low density lipoprotcin (LDL) receptor. In these instances, exonic sequences are known to vary at most at the level of l).I%, which is approximately the level we are seeing here. The notion that human V„ genes are quite polymorphic is, therefore, incorrect and it may well be Ihal all human antibody genes are as similar to each other as are all other genes in the human germ line. Thus, the remarkable variation that is seen in the human population among expressed antibodies would have to be explained by somatic mutation. It may well be that the reason this level of germ line variation has not been seen in thc murine system is because most murine antibodies that have been studied are directed toward small haptens and the techniques used for the isolation of hybridomas differ from the human work. Nonetheless, the findings reported above suggest a remarkable homogeneity of human VH sequences (particularly among the smaller human V" families), and these similar structures may explain the structural basis of cross-reacting idiotypes among human antibodies, particularly autoanti- bodies that typically are IgM and much closer to germ line.

INTERACTION OF THE HUMAN T-CELL LYMPHOTROPHIC VIRUS TYPE I (HTLV-1) TRANSCRIPTIONAL ACTIVATOR TAX WITH CELLULAR FACTORS THAT BIND SPECIFICALLY TO THE 2 I-BASE-PAIR REPEATS IN THE HTLV-1 ENHANCER The human T-cell lymphotrophic virus type I(HTLV-1) Tax protein activates transcription from three 21-base-pair (bp) repeat sequences in the viral enhancer. Using gel electrophoretic mobility-shift assays, we now show that Tax interacts directly with the nuclear proteins, Tax activation factors (TAFs), that bind the 21 -bp repeats. This interaction is demonstrated by decreased electrophoretic mobilities of the TAFs-2I-bp-repeats complexes upon supply of Tax exogenously. Formation of the TAFs-2I-bp-repeats and Tax-TAFs-2I-bp-repeats complexes correlates with in vivo transactivation by Tax. Furthermore, interaction of Tax with TAFs enhances their binding to the 21-bp repeats. These data indicate that trans-activation by Tax is most likely mediated by interaction of Tax with TAFs.

SEQUENCES OF THE CELL-ATTACHMENT SITES OF REOVIRUS TYPE 3 AND ITS ANTI-IDIOTYPIC/ANTIRECEPTOR ANTIBODY: MODELING OF THEIR THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURES Previous studies have identified an area of amino acid sequence similarity shared by Ihe reovirus type 3 cell-attachment protein rr I and an anti-idiotypic/antire- 21R 1 219

ceptor monoclonal antibody (mAb) 87.92.6 that mimics reovirus type 3 by attaching to the same cell-surface receptor. We found that synthetic peptides corresponding to this area of primary sequence similarity bind a neutralizing mAb 9BG5 against which the mAb 87.92.6 is directed. The synthetic peptides compete with mAb 87.92.6 and reovirus type 3 for binding by mAb 9BG5 and displace mAb 87.92.6 and reovirus type 3 from binding to the cell-surface reovirus type 3 receptor. Such observations show that the shared primary structure between reovirus type 3 rr I polypeptide and antireceptor mAb 87.92.6 defines the oligopeptide neutralizing/cell-attachment epi- tope of rcovirus type 3. Computer modeling of this epitope, by use of sequence simi- larities of known immunoglobulin hypervariable loop conformations, permits an examination of the rudimentary three-dimensional structure of this epitope.

MUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF HUMAN T-CELL LEUKEMIA VIRUS TYPE I TAX: RF.GIONS NECESSARY FOR FUNCTION DETERMINED WITH 47 MUTANT PROTF,INS We have made 47 mutations that span the length of the human T-cell leukemia virus type I(HTLV-1)) Tax open reading framc. Of the 47 mutations. 38 were substi- tutions of single amino acids, 5 were missense changes in two or more amino acids, and 4 were deletions. A subset of these mutations includes individual changes of all 26 naturally occurring scrines to alanines. By assaying each mutant protein separate- ly on the XVI long tenninal repeat (LTR) and the human immunodeficiency virus type I(HIV-I ) LTR in parallel, we were able to identify regions of Tax selectively necessary for each promoter. A small region in the carboxyl terminus, amino acids 315 to 325, was found to be selectively important for activation of the HTLV-I LTR. Three changes at scrine 113, scrine 160, and serine 258 were found to (specifically affect function on the HIV-I I,TR. Surprisingly, we found that the great preponder- ance of missense changes (32 of 42) in Tax did not affect function. Semmes. O.J. and JconR, K.-T. Journal of Virology 66(12)7183-7192, December 1992. From the Labcxatory of Molecular Microbiology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bethesda, MD: THE BASIC RNA-BINDING DOMAIN OF HIV-2 TAT CONTRIBUTES TO PREFERENTIAL TRANS-ACTIVATION OF A TAR2-CONTAINING LTR Human immunodeficiency viruses HIV-I and HIV-2 encode a Tat protein that trans-activates the respective viral genome through RNA targets (TARI and TAR2). Tat-I and Tat-2 have considerable homology. However, an interesting biological observation has been that Tat-I activates the HIV-I and HIV-2 LTRs equally while Tat-2 activates the former, in comparison to the latter, poorly. Here, we present evi- dence that it is the TAR2 RNA target together with the basic RNA-binding protein domain of Tat-2 that dictate this non-reciprocity in trans-activation.

ADENOVIRUS INFECTION INHIBITS THE PHOSPHORYLATION OF MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX CLASS I PROTEINS Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules act as peptide receptors to direct the recognition of foreign antigens by cytolytic T cells. The cell surface expression and trafficking of these peptide receptors is thought to be con- trolled by the conformation of the MHC molecule and pussibly by the phosphoryla- tion of the cytoplasmic portion of the heavy chain protein. It is of some interest that adenoviruses (Ads) have evolved proteins that interfere with the expression of MHC molecules. One of these proteins, called E3/19k, binds to newly synthesized MHC molecules in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and inhibits their trafficking to the cell surface. Here we show that during the infection of a human cell line with Ad2, the phosphorylation of the endogenous MHC molecules is inhibited. We also observe that the phosphorylation of the endogenous HLA molecules is grossly impaired in a human cell line transfected with the Ad2 EcoRID fragment containing the E3/19k gene. We conclude that the E3/19k protein inhibits the phosphorylatiim of the MHC heavy chains and that this may be one of the important functions of this protein in infected cells. In addition, we show that a mutant of the E3/19k protein, which lacks an RER retention signal but which retains its ability to bind to HLA molecules, does not inhibit the phosphorylation of HLA molecules and that phospho- rylated molecules are not Endo H sensitive. This suggests that HLA molecules are phosphorylated after leaving the medial-Golgi compartment, thus providing the most compelling evidence yet that HLA molecules are phosphorylaled at or near the cell surface. Finally, to our knowledge, this is Ihe first study under which the phosphory- lation of MHC molecules is shown to be altered and may have some relevance for other pathogenic conditions.

Muramyl dipeptide inhibited serotonin uptake in a temperature dependent and stereospecific manner. It also blocked the binding to platelets of I'Hlirnipraminc, a well-known inhibitor of serotonin uptake. Muramyl dipeptide decreased scrotoninl (5-HT) mediated platelet aggregation, and blocked thc binding of a 5-HT:-specific ligand: lysergic acid diethylamide. Since rnuramyl peptides are released upon degradation of bacteria, the findings offer a pos- sible mechanism for neuro-immune modulation by emphasizing the interaction between 5-FIT (a ncurotransmi(ter) and muramyl peptides (immuno-adjuvants).

In vertebrates, however, the only identified use of this genetic device is in the immune system. Here it plays a critical role in generating a diverse repertoire of surface receptors to intercept invading microbes and parasites. The mechanism and orchestration of this reaction are intriguing and are relevant to a broad array of rel;ucd biological and biomedical issues. l.ieher, M. R.

I)EVELOPMENTALLY RECit1LATED ASSOCIATION OF A 56-kD MEMBER OF THE SURFACE IMMUNOGLOBULIN M RECEPTOR COMPLEX Immature and mature B cells differ in the signals generated and transduced through their antigen receptor, surface immunoglobulin M (sIgM). Whereas signals generated through sIgM on mature B cells initiate a program leading to the positive activation of these cells, signaling through this receptor at the immature stage of development leads to a state of induced unresponsiveness or tolerance. Our previous studies have described developmental differences in sIgM transmembrane signaling that are independent of ligand-receptor affinity. In an attempt to understand the mol- ecular basis for signaling differences between immature and mature B cells, we have analyzed the s1gM receptor complex in neonatal and adult mouse splenic B cells. While previously described components of this complex do not exhibit marked developmentally regulated differences in their association with slgM, we have iden- tified a 56-kD protein that associates with sIgM in mature (antigen-responsive), but not immature (tolerance-sensitive) B cells. This protein (p56) associates with slgM as a homodimer, is constitutively phosphorylated on tyrosine, and is coimmunopre- cipitated with 1gM but not IgD. The observed inability to iodinate p56 suggests it is an intracellular component of the receptor complex. Based upon its migration in one- and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis we show, however, that p56 is distinct from the blk, lyn, or fyn src family kinases that have been shown to be associated with slgM in mature B cells. The developmentally regulated participation of p56 in the B cell antigen receptor complex suggests a role in the differential signaling mediated via slgM on immature and mature B cells.

SIGNALING THROUGH SURFACE IgM IN TOLERANCE-SUSCEPTIBLE IMMATURE MURINE B LYMPHOCYTFS-Dt:vet.oPMt:NTALLV RECtA.ATED DIF17iRENCGS IN 7RANSMF.MBRANE SIGNALING IN SPLENI(' B CELt S FROM ADtA.T AND NEONATAt. MIC'E During the course of B lymphocyte development, newly emerging surface Ig' B cells pass through a stage when Ag-Ag receptor interactions lead not to immune responsiveness but to a state of functional tolerance. We have explored the molecu- lar basis of antigenic nonresponsiveness and tolerance susceptibility using tolerance- susceptible surface Ig' splenic B lymphocytes from neonatal mice and anti-µ chain antibodies as a polyclonal ligand. In this population of cells, surface IgM is uncou- pled from the inositol phospholipid (PI)-hydrolysis pathway at a point proximal to the receptor: anti-µ antibodies did not stimulate inositol phosphate generation de- spite the fact that PI-hydrolysis was observed after treatment with AIF,, implicating the existence of a functional G protein and phospholipase C. Further evidence for a dif- 222 1 223
Page 114: xof92f00
ference early in the signal transduction pathway stems from the finding that anti-µ stimulation does not induce the expression of two immediate/early PKC-linked genes egr-I and r.(as. This appears to be the primary signaling difference between the mature and immature B cells from the neonatal mouse splenic population, as these cells undergo a G,G, cell cycle phase transition when surface IgM is bypassed using phorhol diester and calcium ionophore. Interestingly, despite undetectable levels of PI-hydrolysis, we observed equivalent receptor-mediated changes in intracellular cal- cium when comparing the immature and mature populations. These results indicate incomplete coupling of surface IgM to the signal transduction machinery operative in mature, immunocompetent B cells and suggests a molecular mechanism accounting for the differential processing of surface 1gM signals into activation vs tolerogenic responses observed in these two stages of B cell development.

PHORBOL F,STER REDUCES CONSTITUTIVE NUCLEAR NF B AND INIIIBI"1'S 1lIV-I PRODUCTION IN MATURE HUMAN MONOCYTIC CELLS NF B is a potent mediator of specific gene expression in human monocytes and has been shown to play a role in transcription of the HIV-1 genome in promonocytic Icukemias. There is little information available on the response of NF B to cytokines in normal human monocytcs. We have used a"P-labeled oligonucfeotide derived from human immunodeficicncy virus (HIV-1) long terminal repeat, which contains a tandem repeat of the NF B binding sequence, as a probe in a gel retardation assay to study this transcription factor. Using this assay, we have detected NF B in extracts of nuclei from nomial human monocytes. Treatment of normal monoeytes with 12-0- tetradecanoyl phorMol-1 i-acetate (TPA) for 4-24 h caused the complete disappear- ance of NF 13 from nuclear extracts of monocytes. A similar result was obtained with the mature monocytic leukemia cell line THP-I. The constitutive transcription factor SPI was unaffected by addition of TPA. The disappearance of NF B from the nu- cleus was concentration dependent between 10 and 50 ng/ml of Aorhol ester. In TIIP-I cells, TPA also induced a new, faster-migrating NF.B species not induced in monocyles. Protein kinase C inhibitor staurosporine. hut not cyclic nucleotide- dependent protein kinase inhibitor HA-I(X)4, also dramatically reduced constitutive levels of nuclear NF B. Finally. TPA addition to monocytes infected with HIV-1 inhibited IIIV-I replication, as determined by reverse transcriptase assays, in a con- centration-dependent manner. Thcse results are in striking contrast to the increase in nuclear NF B and HIV-1 replication induced by phorhol esters in promonocytic leukemia cells U937 and I ll. 60, and emphasize the importance of studying cytokine regulation of HIV-I in normal monocytcs.

THE EVOLUTION OF IMMUNE MEMORY AND GERMINAL CENTERS Antibody responses in homoiothermic and poikilothermic vertebrates are signif- icantly different in their heterogeneity and affinity range, and in the speed of the sec- ondary response following repeated antigenic stimulation. This article presents the hypothesis that the evolutionary development of unique lymphoid structures, the ger- minal centers, in combination with the development of a distinct B-cell lineage, is a determining feature of these diferences.

FUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES OF HUMAN GERMINAL CENTER B CELLS Germinal centers (GCs) are histologically defined areas where B cells undergo extensive proliferation and maturation, or die of apoptosis. GC B cells isolated from human tonsils can be phenotypically identified by expression of peanut agglutinin (PNA)-hinding sites and can be further divided into suhpopulations based on their expression of CD77. To assess the functional potential of GC B cells, we studied CD77' PNA' B cells isolated from tonsils by examining their differentiation status and their ability to proliferate in vitro to various cytokines and costimulants. We found that CD77' GC B cells are less differentiated than CD77- GC B cells; CD77 GC 13 cells less frequently express cytoplasmic IgG and IgM, and spontaneously secrete less Ig compared to CD77 GC B cells. To identify conditions capable of inducing GC B cell proliferation, we examined IL-4. IL-2, 1FN-y, low molecular weight B(YAF (LMW-BCGF), and an MLR supernatant along with costimulants such as anti-IgM antibody, ,Staphvlncnr•cus aureus Cowan I(SAC), PMA, and pokeweed mitogen (PWM). While non-GC B cells proliferate strongly in response to these stimuli, GC B cells did not proliferate. However, CD77' as well as CD77 GC B cells mounted a rapid and strong proliferative response upon stimulation with IL-4, but 224 1 225

only in the presence of anti-CD40 antibody. Moreover, although nine additional cylokines were examined, only IL-4 was capable of supporting CD77' GC B cell pro- liferation in the presence of anti-CD4O antibody. When cells were stimulated with IL-4 and anti-CD40 antibody, we also found that IFN-y consistently decreased the proliferative response of CD77' GC B cells without affecting the response of non-GC B cells. Taken together, these data indicate that GC B cells have characteristic growth requirements and that IL-4 may he important for GC cell growth in riva. Butch, A. W. and Nahm, M. H.

CLONAL CHARACTERIZATION OF THE HUMAN IgG ANTIBODY REPERTOIRE TO 1-lAEMOPNILUS INFLUFN7.AL TYPE b POLYSACCHARIDE. IV. 1111; . LIiSS FRtiQUENTI.Y IiXF'RFSSI?I) VI. ARE Fili7T•,R(XiF,NOUS We previously demonstrated that the human anti-Haemophilu.c influenzae type b polysaccharide (Hib-PS) VL repertoire is dominated by a product of the Vrdl-gene, A2, and that VKII-A2 anti-Ilib-PS antibodies have little or no somatic mutation in VL. To further study this VI, repertoire, we studied non-A2 anti-Hib-PS antibodies that were identified either scrologically or by amino-terminal amino acid sequence analysis. Of 15 non-A2 anti-Hib-PS antibodies from 12 vaccinated adults, we found four V.1IV, five VKI, one non-A2 VKI1. four VKIII, and one VKIV antibodies. As expected, all but two of these subjects also produced VKII-A2 antibodies. Interestingly, one of these subjects lacks the A2 gene in the germ line. However, both subjects who did not produce detectable VKH antibody did produce normal amounts of total anti-Hib-PS antibody after vaccination. Candidate Vrc genes for the non-A2 antibodies were identified by comparison of up to 60 VL amino acid residues, including CDRt and CDR2, with all sequenced VK genes. VKI antibodies appear to be products of three newly sequenced Vul genes, 08, 018, and LI I, that arc reported here. The 08 and 019 genes encode identical amino acid sequences. The non-A2 VKH antibody is a likely product of the Al or A17 genes, the VK III antibodies are likely products of the A27 gene, and the VKIV antibody is a products of the single VKIV gene. 133. Unlike VKII-A2 antibodies, the Val, VKIII, and VKIV antitxxlies differed by one to five CDR residues from the germ line product of the candidate genes, suggesting the presence of somatic mutations. Thus, anti-Hib-PS antibodies can be divided into Iwo types, the most frequently observed A2 antibodies with little or no somatic mutation and non-A2 antibodies that likely contain somatic mutations.

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE HUMAN IgG ANTIBODY V REPERTOIRE TO HAF.MOPHILUS INFLUENZAE TYPE b POLYSACCHARIbE The human antibody response to the capsular polysaccharide of Haemophilus influenzae type b(Hib) is a good model for examining human V region repertoires. While the VL repertoire of human antibodies to Hib polysaccharide is relatively simple and dominated by the product of a germline V.II gene named A2, at least five other V, genes can be expressed by some individuals. These include at least two V I products and at least one V 1I1, one V~IV, and one V~ product. The epitope recog- nized by a monoclonal anti-idiotype antlbody is on the A2 V.11 product. Scott, M.

AN IDIOTYPIC MARKER ASSOCIATED WITH A GERM-LINE ENCODED K LIGHT CHAIN VARIABLE REGION THAT PREDOMINATES THE VACCINE- INDUCED HUMAN ANTIBODY RESPONSE TO THE HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE b POLYSACCHARIDE Human antibodies specific for the Haemophilus influenzae b polysaccharide (Nib PS) frequently express a cross-reactive idiotype (CRI), and commonly utilize a V, region that is the product of the VFII gene A2. To examine further anti-Hib PS V region expression and to determine whether CRI expression is correlated with the. V IIA2 chain, we isolated a monoclonal antibody (MAb) reactive with an idiotypic determinant of anti-Hib PS antibodies. This MAb inhibited Nib PS binding but did not react with Ig isotypic determinants. The CR1 recognized by this MAb, designated Hibld-I, was associated with the Nib PS-combining site since the reactivity of the MAb with anti-Hib PS antibodies could be inhibited by Hib PS. Hibld-I was expressed by 17 of 17 clonally purified and sequence-defined anti-Hib PS antibodies having V IIA2 L chains. In contrast, 0 of 10 anti-Hib PS antibodies having either Vy, V.1, or V III chains expressed Hibld-I. Western blot analysis showed that Ihe MAb anti-CRI 'reacted with isolated anti-Hib PS V IIA2 L chains but not with H chains or other L chains, indicating that the Hibld-l determinant is localized to the V IIA2 chain, and does not require pairing with H chain for expression. . Anti-Hib PS antibodies bearing Hibld-I were present in at least 85% of subjects immuniz,ed with either free Nib PS or Nib PS coupled to diphtheria toxoid (Hib PS- 226 1 227
Page 116: xof92f00
DT), and comprised on the average 60% of the total vaccine-induced serum anti-Hib PS. Hihld-I expression was not related to age at vaccination inasmuch as infants, children, and adults had similar distributions of Hibld-I ,positive anti-Hib PS after vaccination with Hib PS-DT. Hibld-1 was expressed at a lower frequency and com- prised a smaller fraction of the total anti-Hib PS antibody in adult preimmunization sera as compared to post-Hib PS immunization sera, suggesting that immunization preferentially stimulates Hibld-I-positive B cells. These data demonstrate that anti- bodies hearing Hibld-I/V IIA2 comprise a predominant component of the anti-Hib PS response induced by immunization, and that this pattern of V, expression is estab- lished early in ontogeny.

TYROSINE PHOSPHORYLATION OF PHOSPHOLIPASE C COUPLES THE FCe RI;CEPTOR MEDIATED SIGNAL TO MAS'I' CELLS SE'CRETION Mast cells respond to clustering of the type I Fce receptor (FceRl) on their membranes by mediator secretion. Recently, a marked enhancement of tyrosine phosphorylation on several proteins has been observed as a result of antigen-induced FceRt aggregation on thcse cells. We report here that the phosphatidyl inositide spe- cific phospholipase C,, (PLC,,) is one of Ihe prime proteins that undergoes tyrosine phosphorylation as a result of this stimulus. This was determined by immunoprecipi- tation of phosphotyrosine containing proteins from detergent lysates of rat mucosal mast cells (rat basophilic leukemia cells, sublinc 2H3; RBI, 2H3) and Western blot- ting analysis of the separated components. A fast appearance of phosphorylated tyro- sine residues on PL.C,, was observed, reaching its maximal intensity at -1-3 min after stimulation and declined afterwards to basal levels. Moreover, the phosphoryla- tion depended on maintaining the aggregated FceRl as did other cellular responses (e.R., phosphatidyl inositides hydrolysis and secretion). The time course of both FceRI induced phospholipase C,, activation, as monitored by the formation of inosi- tol phosphates, and of the secretory response of the cells followed that of the PLC,, phosphorylation. Furthermore, Ihe tyrphostin AG490, a protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor, caused similar inhibition of the FceRI-induced PLC,, phosphorylation, inositol phosphates formation, and mediator secretion. Significantly, no tyrosine phosphorylation of PLCy was induced by the Ca" ionophore, ionomycin, even at doses that cause optimal secctory response. Taken together, these results clearly sug- gest that PI.C,, phosphorylation on tyrosine residues constitutes a key element in the cascade coupling the FcERI clustering stimulus to the secretory response. Moreover, FceRl clustering is dynamically coupled through tyrosine phosphorylation/dephos- phorylation to the PLC,, activity and to the ensuing secretory response. 228 Schneider, H., Cohen-Dayag, A., and Perhl,l.

VARIANTS OF THE MUCOSAL MAST CELL LINE (RBL-2H3) DEFICIENT IN A FUNCTIONAL MEMBRANE GLYCOPROTEIN We have isolated and characterized subpopulations of the rat mucosal mast cell line, RBL-2H3, carrying either high or low density of a glycoprotein, recently estab- lished as mast cell function-associated antigen (MAFA, Ortega et a1., 1991), on their surface. These populations were investigated in order to better define the involve- ment of the MAFA in coupling the immunological stimulation of mast cells to medi- ator release. The MAFA density on the cell surface of the deficient subpopulation was 510-20% that of the parental population and this phenotype was found to he sta- bly maintained for several months. In contrast, the MAFA-enriched cells had maxi- mally twice the number of copies per cell surface than that of the parental population and this phenotype was less stable. Significantly, low copy number of MAFA on the cell's surface was accompanied by a markedly different secretory response, i.e., (i) a considerable decrease in the secretory response to the FceRI-mediated stimulus (ii) a marked enhancement of the ionomycin induced secretion. In order to gain insight into the causes for this decrease in cellular response to the FceRI- mediated stimulus, we measured the amplitudes of several biochemical processes which are assigned to the stimulus-secretion coupling cascade. The FceRl- mediated uptake of "C.a" by the MAFA-deficient cells was considerably lower than that of the parental and MAFA-enriched cells. Similarly, these cell's FceRl-induced rise in ICa2'j, (both the initial transient as well as the sustained elevation) was markedly lower than that of the parental line and the MAFA-enriched cells. Moreover, the low initial transient rise in ICa"j was found to be correlated with the decrease in FceRl-mediated IP, levels. We therefore examined the cell's content of the phosphatidyl-inositides hydrolyzing enzyme, phospholipase Cy~. This was found to be similar in the parental line and in derived subpopulations. However, PLC ~ acti- vation, as measured by the time course of phosphorylation of its (yrosines, showed a marked difference; while PLCy~ tyrosine phosphorylation, in the parental cells, was, only transient (detected already I min after antigen addition and declined afterwards to basal levels at ca. 10 min) in the MAFA-deGcient cells, tyrosine phosphorylaled PLCy) was also observed I min after antigen addition, yet showed no decrease with time in its phosphorylation intensity for up to 30 min. Thus, in analogy to the current mechanisms proposed for the coupling between other antigen-receptors, such as that of T cell or surface Ig on B cells, with their associated membrane components and cylosolic protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) or phosphatases (PTPs), it is suggested that the MAFA may serve as a regulatory element of the coupling between the FcERI and the PTKs and/or PTPs which in turn carry on the cascade to the cell's secretory response. 229

SURFACE Ig RECEPTOR-INDUCED NUCLEAR AP-I DEPENDENT GENE EXPRESSION IN B LYMPHOCYTES The relationship between signals generated via the sIgR complex of B lympho- cytes and subsequent changes in gene expression is poorly understood at the molecu- lar level. To illuminate mechanisms that may couple these events, we examined the expression and function of tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate-response element (TRE)- binding proteins (i.e., activator protein I, (AP-l)) in the murine B lymphoma cell line BAL-17.7.1 (BAL-17), which models primary B lymphocyte responses in a number of respects. Cross-linking of sIgR led to substantial induction of nuclear AP- I, in BAL-17 B cells, that bound the TRE, as detected by electrophoretic mobility shift assay. The slgR-induced TRE-binding activity consisted of both Jun and Fos proteins, on the basis of immunoreactivity of nucleoprotein complexes with specific antisera. In addition, immuno-precipitation with specific antisera showed that de novo synthesis of Jun-B and c-Jun proteins, accompanied by c-Fos, was stimulated after cross-linking of slgR on BAL-17 B cells. Transient transfection of BAL-17 B cclls with reporter gene constructs showed that B cell AP-l failed trans-activate the TRE-containing human collagenase gene promoter, for which activity is dependent upon functional expression of cellular c-Jun. In contrast, slg-induced AP-1 tran.c- activated a HSV-tk promoter that contained three TRE; this pattern of gene expres- sion is consistent with the presence of functional Jun-B-containing AP-I in B lym- phocytes. These results are the first to attribute a functional role to slgR-mediated AP-I in B lymphoid cells and suggest that AP-I functions to couple the slgR com- plex to changes in nuclear gene expression.

ASSOCIATION OF HEAT SHOCK PROTEIN 70 WITH ENTEROVIRUS CAPSID PRECURSOR PI IN INFECTED HUMAN CELLS Members of the human heat shock (HSP) family of related proteins are involved in the intraccllular folding. transport, and assembly of proteins and protein com- plexcs. We have observed that human heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is associated with the capsid precursor PI of poliovirus and coxsackievirus BI in infected HeLa cells. Antiserum generated against HSP70 coimmunoprecipitated the poliovirus pro- tein PI, an intermediate in capsid assembly. Similarly, a-virion serum coimmuno- precipitated HSP70 from virus-infected cell extracts, but not from mock-infected cell extracts. The HSP70-PI complex was stable in high-salt medium but was sensitive to incubation with 2 mM ATP, which is a characteristic of other known functional complexes between HSP70 and cellular proteins. The P1 in the complex was pre- dominantly newly synthesized, and the half-life of complexed Pl was nearly twice as long as that of total PI. The HSP70-PI complex was found to sediment at 3S to 6S, suggesting that it may be part of, or a precursor to, the "5S promoter particles" thought to be an assembly intermediate of picomaviruses. The finding that HSP70 was associated with the capsid precursors of at least two enteroviruses may suggest a functional role of these complexes in the viral life cycles. Macejak, D. G. and Sarnow, P.

CAN PERITONEAL B CELLS BE RENDERED UNRESPONSIVE? Ly-I' B cells have been reported to produce a number of autoantibodies, and to be involved in the selection and regulation of the conventional B cell repertoire. It is not known if these B cells, which are found in high numbers in the peritoneum of normal adult mice, themselves can be regulated. In this study, we evaluated the sen- sitivity of peritoneal B cells (PBCs) versus conventional splenic B cells to regulation in a model system for tolerance. Normal splenic (conventional) or PBCs (containing both CD5' and CD5 'sister' cells) were cultured overnight with either F(ab')T or intact IgG anti-mouse Ig, washed, and then challenged with fluorescein(FL) coupled to Brue•ella ahorlu.c (BA), trimethylammonium (TMA)-BA or lipopolysaccharide (LPS), and the IgM rises to the FL and TMA haptens measured. In contrast to spleen cells, which exhibited up to a 90% reduction in anti-FL responsiveness, pretreated PBCs were mostly resistant to this form of tolerance regardless of challenge. The anti-TMA response of PBCs, which reflects the skewed V"I I usage by peritoneal CD5 B cells, was also resistant to tolerance. However, splenic• TMA-specific B cells appeared to be sensitive to unresponsiveness induced by anti-Ig. Signaling studies show that PBCs have a blunted initial Ca" response, suggesting that the consequence of anti-Ig crosslinking may he defective in these cells. Furthermore, phorbal myris- tate acetate and/or ionomycin treatment of both PB and splenic B cells led to hypore- sponsiveness to LPS challenge. This suggests that PBCs may he defective in a sig- naling pathway, perhaps involving protein kinase C activation. Our studies reveal that antibody production by PBCs is not subject to conventional tolerance pathways, a control which may be important in terms of their ability to regulate other B cells. 230 1 231

TIIMORI(;ENIC'ITY OF INTERLF,UKIN-2 (11. 2)-cDNA-TRANSFECTED 1,1210 I,YMPHOMA ANI) ITS IN VIVf) VARIANTS IS MODULATED BY CHANGES IN ll: 2 1?XPRF.SSION; I'OTENTIAL THERAPEUTIC IMPLICATIONS Tci study parameters that affect the tumorigenicity of L1210 lymphoma, we have analyzed the structure of MHCclass I antigens of this tumor. In addition, this tumor was transfected with interleukin-2 (IL-2) cDNA in order to determine the effects of high concentrations of I1,-2 within the tumor environment. The nucleotide sequence of the class I K', 1T and L`' mRNAs from this tumor showed that the encod- ed amino acid sequence of the corresponding antigens is normal, thus suggesting Ihat the tumorigenicity of 1,1210 lymphoma is not due to defective antigen presentation to tumor-specific cytotoxic T cells. In contrast, induction of IL-2 expression by cDNA transfeclion led to loss of tumorigenicity of the IL-2-secreting tumor cells. Ilowever, a fraction of long-term surviving mice developed progressively growing variant tumors that showed substantial decrease or loss of IL-2 expression. These results suggest that II,-2 secretion by tumors is suicidal but, because of tumor hetero- geneity, II,-2-Ioss-variant tumors may arise that are able to escape the immune defenses of the host. The observed consistent loss of Il: 2 expression in variant tumors implies that specific targeting of large quantities of IL-2 to tumor cells may be a valuable appmach to immmnotherapy of cancer. In addition, we find that under specific gamma ray irradiation IL-2-secreting tumor cells lose their ability to multi- ply yet continue to secrete Il; 2 at levels equivalent to those secreted by unirradiated cells. Such I1: 2-sccrcting irradiated tumor cells were found to he superior immuno- gens in comparison to Ihe irradiated parental tumor cells, suggesting their use as tumor vaccines. ('hakravarty, P.

COORDINATE INTERACTIONS OF PROTEIN TYROSINE KINASES AND PROTEIN TYROSINE PHOSPHATASES IN T-CELL RECEPTOR-MEDIATED SIGNALING T-cell receptor stimulation leads to a rapid increase in tyrosine phosphorylation which is regulated by both the CD45 transmembrane protein tryosine phosphatase and by intracellular protein tyrosine kinases.

CD45: A TRANSMEMBRANE PROTEIN TYROSINE PHOSPHATASE INVOLVED IN THE TRANSDUCTION OF ANTIGENIC SIGNALS Antigen recognition by T lymphocytes is mediated through the T-cell receptor (TcR) complex, an assembly of three distinct transmembrane components: an a(3 or -y8 heterodimer, which can physically interact with antigenic peptides; CD3, a group of three distinct polypeptides; and aC chain homodimer. How this complex mediates signal transduction upon binding to foreign peptides has not yet been elucidated. Nonetheless, changes in a variety of second messengers have been described upon signalling through the TcR complex including changes in tyrosine phosphorylation, an increase in intracellular calcium, phosphoinositol turnover, and activation of p21,° Weaver, C.

B-CELL SUBSETS DEFINED BY THE FceR The data summarized herein demonstrate the utility nf the low-affinity FceR in delineating murine B-cell subsets. In the peritoneal cavity, the FcER appears to be a reliable marker in distinguishing between conventional (FceR') and Ly-I/sister (FceR ) B cells. In the spleens of normal animals, flow cytometric and histologic studies established that a distinct population of FceR B cells is also present and 232 1 233
Page 119: xof92f00
comprises the marginal zones. Thus, in the spleen, the FceR may be the first murine marker to allow for selective purification and analysis of marginal zone B cells. Although it is unlikely that splenic FCER B cells are directly related to peritoneal FceR Ly-1/sistcr B cells, further studies will be required to address this question. Analysis of autoimmunc mice revealed that (he splenic FceR subset is greatly expanded in these animals and indicates that the FCER may be a sensitive indicator of abnormalities within the B-cell compartment. Additional studies compared the func- tional capacity of FceR' and FCER B cells and tested the ability of these populations to isotype-switch and respond to polyclonal stimuli. The results showed that FceR' and FCER B cells from both the peritoneum and spleen can switch to produce IgG, and all but the peritoneal FCER B cells can switch to the IgE class. This latter result is certainly interesting and demonstrates an important functional difference between peritoneal and splenic FcER B cells. Finally, experiments with B-cell mitogens showed further differences between the FceR' and FceR subsets. Whereas FCER B cells appeared to be more sensitive to LPS stimulation, FceR' B cells were clearly more responsive to an anti-IgM signal. Taken together, the results show that the FceR is likely to be useful in separating B cells with different phenotypic, histologic, and functional characteristics. Wald.cchmidr, 7'..

THE 1,OW AFFINITY IgE Fc RECEPTOR (CD23) PARTICIPATES IN B ('ELI, ACTIVATION No clear function for the surface form of the B cell FceRll has been identified. Most investigators have focused on the role of the cleaved receptor, and have shown that the soluble FceRII can serve as a growth co-factor for immature and mature T cells, myeloid precursors, and B cells, prevent macrophage migration, and potentiate IgE secretion. Although no dominant role for the surface FceRII has been found, several groups have demonstratecl that crosslinking this receptor with IgE or anti- ('D2i antibodies downrcgulates IgE secretion, while other investigators have reported that IgE immune complexes can be effectively taken up by B cells resulting in pro- cessing and presentation of the complexed antigen. Our laboratory has taken another approach in searching for the function of the FceRII. A large body of evidence has demonstrated that the FcyRII delivers a strong inhibitory signal to the B cell when crosslinked with surface Ig; and can effect downregulation of B cell activation, pro- liferation, and differentiation. The inhibition only occurs if the FcyR1I is crosslinked to surface Ig, since crosslinking the FcyRll with itself has no demonstrable effect on B cells. This slg-FcyRII crosslinking can be perfomed experimentally with intact rabbit IgG anti-mouse IgM or IgD, where the Fc portion of the rabbit antibody binds to the FcyR1I and the antigen binding sites of lhe molecule bind to surface 1g. In vivo, this crosslinking is thought to be mediated by IgG immune complexes or anti- idiotypic antibodies, and has been proposed as a means of antibody feedback regula- tion. Based upon the ability of the FcyRII to exert its function when crosslinked with surface lg, we sought to examine whether the FceRlt might also deliver a negative signal to the B cell when similarly crosslinked. Accordingly, we developed a unique reagent which would allow one to test the effect of slg-FceRII crosslinking, and thereby lend information as to the function of this receptor on B cells.

MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF PRIMARY T CELL INVOLVEMENT IN THE IDIOTYPIC NETWORK UTILIZING IMMUNOGLOBULIN-DERIVED PEPTIDES The development of anti-idiotypic antibodies during immune responses has been implicated in a wide variety of immunologic phenomena including immunoreg- ulation, development of autoantibodies and modulation of immune response. These studies indicate that primary helper T cells can be stimulated by immunoglobulin variable region products. This finding suggests that if the T cell repertoire is determined by self peptides associated with MHC molecules during development, then IgH linked products must be considered as elements that can influence the receptor selection of at least some T cell subsets. We have previously suggested that apparent IgH linked restrictions of certain T cells mighl be deter- mined by receptor driven processes. It is apparent that this sort of mechanism may play a variety of roles in the development of many specific immune responses, with immunoregulatory effects on Fxoth B cells and T cells. Williams, W.

B-CELL PROLIFERATION INITIATED BY la CROSS-LINKING AND SUSTAINED BY INTERLEUKINS LEADS TO CLASS SWITCHING BUT NOT SOMATIC MUTATION IN VITRO Somatic mutations that are acquired by antibody V genes of antigen-stimulated B cells ultimately provide the clonal diversity from which memory B cells are select- ed during immune responses to T-cell-dependent antigens. Somatic mutations appar- ently are not acquired when B cells are stimulated by mitogens nor when they partici- pate in immune responses to T-cell-independent antigens. Since the basis of T-cell- dependent humoral immunity is T-cell recognition of processed antigen in the con- text of class 11 major histocompatibility glycoproteins (la) on the B-cell surface, we sought to determine whether the ligation of la on B cells induces somatic mutation. B cells were stimulated in vitrn by a procedure in which their proliferation was depen- dent upon ligation of surface la with antibody. Sequences of hybridoma V genes derived from these B cells revealed no somatic mutations despite prolonged stimula- lion in vilra and the induction of immunoglobulin secretion and switching to isotypes characteristic of T-cell-dependent humoral immunity. We infer that la-mediated sig- naling and isotype switching are not causally related to somatic mutation. The avenue of differentiation that leads to somatic mutation in memory B cells is apparently sep- arable from that leading to proliferation, immunoglobulin secretion and switching. Wv.aorki, L. .I..

SEQUENCING HEAVY- AND LIGHT-CHAIN VARIABLE GENES OF SINGLE B-FIYBRIDOMA CELLS BY TOTAL ENZYMATIC AMPLIFICATION We have devised a protocol to obtain accurate and complete sequences of the immunoglobulin heavy- and light-chain variable-region (V,, and Vd genes of single B-hybridoma cells Ihat express defined V genes. The amplification achieved ranges from 2 X 10"- to I X l0'°-fold. Only one potential Taq DNA polymerase error was observed in 7590 nucleotides of sequence, thus permitting the identification of natu- rally occurring somatic mutations. The two-step nature of the amplification protocol provides sufiicient 1)NA for a minimum of 160 sets of sequencing reactions of both the V,, and V, genes from one cell without cloning. The amplification of relatively long segments of DNA in the first step of the protocol permits second-step amplifi- cation and sequencing of regions that flank V,. and V,codons. Fractionating cellular lysates prior to the first step of amplification permits the separate amplification of V genes on opposite sister chromatids and possibly on opposite strands of the same 1)NA duplex. Accurate sequencing of V,, and V, genes of defined germ-line origin that are expressed by single B cells taken directly from the animal is thus made fea- sible by this approach. Liu, A.

MODULATION, IN VIVO AND IN VITRO, OF SURFACE EXPRESSION OFCDI8 BY BOVINE NEUTROPHILS A series of experiments was designed to elucidate some of the factors that may influence surface ression of CDI8 by bovine neutrophils. Expression of CDI8 was determined by immunofluorescence flow cytometry. Neutrophils recovered from the uterus of cows (n = 9) after intrauterine administration of sterile oyster glycogen so- lution expressed (mean ± SD) 123 ± 21% more CD18 than did circulating neu- trophils recovered simultaneously from the same cows (P = 0.003). In 8 cows given 20 mg of dexamethasone 1M daily for 3 days, expression of CD18 on blood neu- trophils was 29.6 ± 8% less after treatment than before treatment (P = 0.0078). Neutrophils from 12 cows or bulls exposed to phorbol myristate acetate in vilrn increased expression of CDI8 by 137 ± 37% (P = 0.0035). Likewise, exposure of neutrophils from 8 cattle to zymosan-activated bovine plasma increased CDI8 expo- sure by 10.6 ± 3.8% (P = 0.029). These findings indicate that expression of CD18 by bovine neutrophils is a dynamic system, capable of responding to inflammatory stimuli. Inadvertent activa- tion of neutrophils may be responsible for some of the variance in expression observed when examining large groups of cattle for CD 18 expression by neutrophils. The ability of bovine neutrophils to respond rapidly to various stimuli by increasing surface expression of CDI8 indicates that a pool of intracellular CD18 may be avail- able for inclusion in the plasmalemma, as has been reported for human neutrophils.
