英文摘要:

Context: Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent disease. Steroidogenic factor-1 (SF-1), a transcriptional factor essential for activation of multiple steroidogenic genes for estrogen biosynthesis, is undetectable in normal endometrial stromal cells and aberrantly expressed in endometriotic stromal cells.

Objective: The objective of the study was to unravel the mechanism for differential SF-1 expression in endometrial and endometriotic stromal cells.

Design: We identified a CpG island flanking the SF-1 promoter and exon I region and determined its methylation patterns in endometrial and endometriotic cells.

Setting: The study was conducted at Northwestern University.

Patients or Other Participants: Eutopic endometrium from diseasefree subjects (n = 8) and the walls of cystic endometriosis lesions of the ovaries (n = 8) were investigated. Intervention(s): Stromal cells were isolated from these two types of tissues.

Main Outcome Measure(s): Measures are mentioned in Results.

Results: SF-1 mRNA and protein levels in endometriotic stromal cells were significantly higher than those in endometrial stromal cells (P < 0.001). Bisulfite sequencing showed strikingly increased methylation in endometrial cells, compared with endometriotic cells (P < 0.001). Demethylation by 5-aza-2(′)-deoxycytidine increased SF-1 mRNA levels by up to 55.48-fold in endometrial cell (P < 0.05). Luciferase assays showed that the -85/+239 region bearing the CpG island regulated its activity (P < 0.01). Natural or in vitro methylation of this region strikingly reduced SF-1 promoter activity in both cell types (P < 0.01). Chromatin immunoprecipitation assay showed that methyl-CpG-binding domain protein 2 binds to the SF-1 promoter in endometrial but not endometriotic cells.

Conclusions: This is the first demonstration of methylation-dependent regulation of SF-1 in any mammalian tissue. These findings point to a new mechanism for targeting local estrogen biosynthesis in endometriosis.
