Abstract [en]

Background/Aims: The synthetic estrogen 17 alpha-ethinyl estradiol (EE), a potent tumor promoter in rat liver, stimulates growth during short-term treatment but inhibits hepatocyte proliferation upon prolonged treatment. To identify the molecular targets of the mitoinhibitory effect of EE, the expression of proteins regulating G(1)- and S-progression were analyzed during the first cell cycle in EE-treated female Wistar rats. Methods: Long-term (60 days) EE treatment. Immunohistochemical staining for proliferation cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) to detect cells in S phase and quantification of mitosis. Western blot to monitor protein expression. Cdk2 kinase assay to examine histone H1 phosphorylation. Results: EE reduced the number of cells in S phase and mitosis by about 70%. Cyclin D-1 and D-3 were unaffected, while cdk4 was moderately decreased. Cyclin E and cdk2 were markedly decreased with concomitant marked reduction of cdk2 kinase activity. EE also decreased cyclin A and increased G(1) levels of p53 and p21. Conclusions: EE causes a cell cycle block before S-phase. The reduction of the cdk2 kinase activity, essential for G(1)/S-transition, might be involved in the cell cycle block. Also, EE treatment results in p53 activation and upregulation of the cdk inhibitor p21 that might contribute to the G(1) arrest.

Abstract [en]

The effects of dietary 2-acetylaminofluorene (2-AAF) on cell cycle-related proteins was studied in regenerating livers from male Wistar rats, The levels of cyclins, cyclin dependent kinases (cdks), and related proteins were studied at different times during the first cell cycle after partial hepatectomy (PH). The frequency of proliferation cell nuclear antigen (PCNA)-positive nuclei, a marker of S phase progression, was almost zero during the first 27 hours after PH in the mitoinhibited 2-AAF-treated rats, while about 50% of the nuclei were labeled 24 hours after PH in control animals. Accordingly, Western blot tests showed markedly elevated PCNA protein levels from 18 hours to the end of S phase in untreated animals but no upregulation in response to 2-AAF. Compared with control animals, animals treated with 2-AAF showed increased levels of cdk 4 and cyclin D-3 from 12 and 15 hours after PH, respectively, and altered cyclicity in cyclin Dg expression. No effects on cyclin E were observed, while the increase in cdk 2 levels in control animals during late G(1)/S (15-27 hours) was abolished by 2-AAF. p53 was induced by 2-AAF treatment during the same period, with a peak at 24 hours. The protein detected with p21 antibodies was highly expressed in unstimulated hepatocytes in control animals, and further increased by 2-AAF. The expression was sustained until 15 hours after PH in control rats while 2-AAF-treated animals lacked detectable protein during this period; however, a transient increase was observed at 21 hours, Thus, 2-AAF affects several parameters of cell cycle regulation of possible relevance for its inhibitory effects on hepatocyte proliferation in vivo.
