ABSTRACT Increased levels of isoprostanes have been detected in human atherosclerotic lesions. To examine a possible role for 8-iso-prostaglandin E(2) (8-iso-PGE(2)) in atherogenesis, we tested the effect of 8-iso-PGE(2) on adhesion of leukocytes to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (EC). We demonstrate that 8-iso-PGE(2) stimulates EC to bind monocytes, but not neutrophils. This effect was inhibited by the thromboxane A(2) receptor antagonist SQ29548. Moreover, 8-iso-PGE(2) increased levels of cyclic AMP in EC, and monocyte adhesion induced by 8-iso-PGE(2) was blocked by a protein kinase A inhibitor, H89. In addition, 8-iso-PGE(2 )induced phosphorylation of p38 and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) 1/2 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase and stimulated expression of EGR-1. A specific inhibitor of p38 MAP kinase (SB203580) abrogated monocyte binding, whereas an inhibitor of the ERK pathway (PD98059) did not block monocyte adhesion induced by 8-iso-PGE(2). Activation of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) and expression of NFkappaB-dependent genes intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, and E-selectin were not induced by 8-iso-PGE(2). Taken together, these results demonstrate that 8-iso-PGE(2) stimulates EC to specifically bind monocytes, but not neutrophils. This effect is mediated by cyclic AMP/protein kinase A- and p38 MAP kinase-dependent pathways and is independent of the classical inflammatory NFkappaB pathway. Thus, formation of 8-iso-PGE(2) may play an important role in chronic inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis by increasing adhesion and extravasation of monocytes.

    ABSTRACT: Adhäsionsmoleküle spielen eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Arterioskleroseentstehung. Sie bedingen die Anheftung und nachfolgende Migration von Leukozyten in den subendothelialen Raum (siehe 2.2.2). Eine vermehrte Expression ist Ausdruck einer Aktivierung des Gefäßendothels und kann zum einen durch physikalische Faktoren, wie zum Beispiel erhöhtem shear stress, ausgelöst werden. Zum anderen setzen verschiedene Substanzen Signalkaskaden der Endothelzelle in Gang, welche in einer vermehrten Expression der Oberflächenadhäsionsmoleküle gipfelt. Neben Zytokinen (IL-1, TNFα) und Bakterientoxinen wie LPS (BEVILACQUA et al. 1985, 1987, GAMBLE et al. 1985, YU et al. 1986, LUSCINSKAS et al. 1989) können Stoffwechselprodukte die Adhäsionsmolekülexpression steigern. Hier sind Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) zu nennen, die aus Reaktionen von Keto- oder Aldehydgruppen von Zuckern mit Aminogruppen von Proteinen hervorgehen und vor allem bei alten Menschen und Diabetes mellitus Patienten eine Rolle spielen (KUNT et al. 1999). Auch oxidiertes LDL, welches bei Patienten mit Hypercholesterinämie erhöht ist, kann die Expression der Adhäsionsmoleküle steigern und so Monozyten binden (COMINACINI et al. 1998), während eine Inkubation

    ABSTRACT: Last year Antioxidants and Redox Signaling devoted a special Forum issue (Volume 7, 2005) to reviewing the current literature on isoprostanes (IsoPs) and related compounds. Awide variety of topics provided readers of that issue with important information on the chemistry and biology of these molecules. During the past year, more than 200 articles have been published in the field of IsoP research, and noteworthy advances in the area have been made. This editorial highlights selected aspects of these advances as they relate to the Forum issue. The main focus of this discussion is on the role of the IsoPs as biomarkers and mediators of oxidant stress in human disease, their mechanism of formation and metabolism, and their biologic activities.
