Abstract

Collagenase is synthesized and secreted by rat osteoblastic cells in response to PTH. We have previously demonstrated that this effect involves a substantial increase in collagenase mRNA via transcription. Northern blots and nuclear run-on assays were performed to further investigate the induction of collagenase by PTH in the rat osteoblastic cell line UMR 106-01. Detectable amounts of collagenase mRNA were not apparent until 2 h of PTH treatment, showed the greatest abundance at 4 h, and declined to approximately 30% of maximum by 8 h. The changes in the rate of transcription of the collagenase gene in response to PTH paralleled and preceded the changes in the steady state mRNA levels. After an initial lag period of about 1 h, collagenase transcription rates increased from very low levels to a maximal response at 2 h, returning to about 50% of maximum by 10 h. The increased transcriptional rate of the collagenase gene was found to be dependent on the concentration of PTH, with a half-maximal response at approximately 7 × 10-10 M rat PTH-(1-34) and a maximal effect with a dose of 10-8 M. The PTH-mediated induction of collagenase transcriptional activity was completely abolished by cycloheximide, while transcription of the β-actin gene was unaffected by the translation inhibitor. These data suggest that a protein factor(s) is required for PTH-mediated transcriptional induction of collagenase. Since PTH increases intracellular levels of several potential second messengers, agents that mimic these substances were employed to determine which signal transduction pathway is predominant in the PTH-mediated stimulation of collagenase transcription. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate and ionomycin were ineffective at increasing the transcriptional activity of the collagenase gene, while 8-bromo-cAMP over the range of 2.5 × 10-4-10-3 M could reproduce the PTH effect. We conclude that in rat osteoblastic cells, PTH induces collagenase transcription primarily through activation of protein kinase-A, rather than through protein kinase-C or calcium, and requires the expression of other genes.
