|Abstract||This study demonstrates a novel link between alterations in platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) regulation of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) expression during malignant conversion. H-ras-transformed cell lines exhibited PDGF-mediated alterations in ODC gene expression. These alterations involved transcriptional, posttranscriptional, and cycloheximide-mediated events. PDGF-mediated alterations in ODC gene expression in NR3 cells (capable of only benign tumour formation) were ras-dependent, involved a tyrosine kinase activity and mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase-mediated signalling events, and were independent of both protein kinase C (PKC) events and pertussis toxin-sensitive (PTS) G-protein-mediated signalling. PDGF-mediated alterations in ODC gene expression in C2 cells [capable of malignant progression (metastasis formation)] were ras-dependent, required a tyrosine kinase activity, involved both MAP kinase-mediated events and phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI-3-kinase)-mediated events, and were dependent upon PTS G-protein-mediated signalling but independent of PKC-mediated events. PDGF-mediated regulation of ODC gene expression changes in response to H-ras-mediated cellular transformation and malignant progression. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.|
