英文摘要

The regulation of galectin-3 expression in skeletal tissues is not completely understood. Our studies indicate that HIF-1 alpha regulates galectin-3 expression by interacting with hypoxia regulatory elements in the promoter region. Finally, we show that galectin-3 serves a prosurvival role in the intervertebral disc.

Introduction: Earlier reports indicated that galectin-3 (gal-3) is highly expressed in the epiphyseal growth plate cartilage and the intervertebral disc. Because these skeletal tissues have a limited vascular supply and the cells reside in a low O-2 environment, we determined if the oxemic status modulates gal-3 expression.

Materials and Methods: Cells were cultured in normoxia (21% O-2) or hypoxia (2% O-2), and gal-3 expression and promoter activity were evaluated. Interaction of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-1 alpha with the gal-3 promoter was confirmed by gel shift and site-directed mutagenesis.

Results: There was minimal oxygen-dependent change in HIF-1 alpha levels and no change in gal-3 expression and promoter activity in nucleus pulposus cells. In contrast, hypoxia induced gal-3 mRNA, protein, and promoter activity in HeLa cells and mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) from HIF-1 alpha wildtype but not HIF-1-null mice. To evaluate the importance of HIF-1 in regulation of gal-3 expression, we overexpressed HIF-1 alpha or constitutively active-HIF-1 alpha in null MEF. An increase in gal-3 promoter activity was observed in both normoxia and hypoxia. Similarly, suppression of HIF-1 alpha in nucleus pulposus cells, and wildtype MEF, using siRNA and pharmacological inhibitors resulted in suppression of gal-3 promoter activity and mRNA levels. Analysis of the gal-3 promoter indicated that it contained two hypoxia response elements (HREs). Gel-shift and chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis confirmed that there was binding of HIF-1 alpha to the gal-3 HRE. Furthermore, site-directed mutagenesis of HRE completely blocked hypoxic induction of gal-3 promoter activity. In nucleus pulposus cells, suppression of gal-3 expression promoted FasL-mediated apoptosis.

Conclusions: Together, these studies showed that gal-3 is a HIF-1-regulated lectin that plays an important role in nucleus pulposus cell survival.
