Stuart, William D., Shigeto Maeda, Paramjit Khera, James A. Fagin, and Thomas L. Clemens. Parathyroid hormone-related protein induces G1 phase growth arrest of vascular smooth muscle cells. Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 279: E60–E67, 2000.—In this study, we investigated the mechanisms responsible for the growth-inhibitory action of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHRP) in A10 vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). Fluorescence-activated cell sorting analysis of serum-stimulated VSMC treated… Expand

Figures from this paper

Physiological actions of parathyroid hormone related protein
Gene-knockout studies demonstrated that a functional PTHrP gene is required for postnatal survival, and that the growth plates of embryonic mice lacking P THrP display premature cartilage differentiation, and suggested ways in which nuclear signaling by PTHRP may effect cellular responses. Expand
Cytokine‐dependent balance of mitogenic effects in primary human lung fibroblasts related to cyclic AMP signaling and phosphodiesterase 4 inhibition
It is demonstrated that bFGF and IL‐1β act in concert to fine‐tune lung fibroblast proliferation resulting in amplification or reduction, and inhibition of PDE4 inhibition (rather than PDE3) may diminish proliferation of human Lung fibroblasts and therefore could be useful in the therapy of pathological remodeling in lung diseases.

A nuclear form of the heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor precursor is a feature of aggressive transitional cell carcinoma.
The ability of proHB-EGF to localize to the nucleus was independently confirmed in a TCC cell line (TCCSUP), in which approximately 40% of transfected proHSGF was found to reside in the nuclear compartment, and the findings suggest that nuclear pro HB- EGF may play a role in disease progression in bladder cancer and possibly other cancers.

Aggressive Transitional Cell Carcinoma Factor-like Growth Factor Precursor Is a Feature of A Nuclear Form of the Heparin-binding Epidermal Growth
Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HBEGF), a member of the ErbB receptor ligand family, exists in distinct molecular forms with disparate biological activities. PreviousExpand
The parathyroid hormone-related protein system: more data but more unsolved questions
Questions as to whether and how parathyroid hormone-related protein intervenes in vascular development and homeostasis and in vascular diseases such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, restenosis and heart failure have begun to be unraveled. Expand
Molecular pathways of cyclic nucleotide‐induced inhibition of arterial smooth muscle cell proliferation
This review summarizes the knowledge of the signaling pathways regulated by cyclic nucleotides in arterial smooth muscle cells and describes the mechanisms behind cell proliferation, differentiation, migration, and apoptosis. Expand
Parathyroid Hormone-Related Peptide and Malignancy
The term “pseudohypoparathyroidism” was employed to describe a syndrome in which cancers had not metastasized to bone, but were associated with hypercalcemia and other PTH-like biochemical abnormalities, including a higher level of serum calcium in the former and a tendency in the latter toward an alkalosis rather than an acidosis.

In the 1940s, a leak from a leftover canister of mustard gas prompted scientists to take a closer look at the myelosuppressive implications of nitrogen mustard for treating acute leukemia (thenExpand


Abundant expression of parathyroid hormone-related protein in primary rat aortic smooth muscle cells accompanies serum-induced proliferation.
It is reported here that PTHrP mRNA is expressed in SMC and is markedly induced by serum in a time- and concentration-dependent fashion, suggesting a major role for P THrP as a local modulator in vascular smooth muscle. Expand
Role of parathyroid hormone-related protein in the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells.
The results suggest that PTHrP, as an autocrine and/or paracrine regulator, may inhibit VSMC DNA synthesis mediated at least partly by cAMP, a second messenger which has also been proposed to mediate vascular relaxation. Expand
Opposing mitogenic and anti-mitogenic actions of parathyroid hormone-related protein in vascular smooth muscle cells: a critical role for nuclear targeting.
It is demonstrated that PTHrP can be targeted to the nucleus in vascular smooth muscle cells, and that this nuclear targeting is associated with a striking increase in mitogenesis and this nuclear effect on proliferation is the diametric opposite of the effects of P THrP resulting from interaction with cell surface receptors on vascular smooth Muscle cells. Expand
Expression of p27Kip1 in osteoblast-like cells during differentiation with parathyroid hormone.
Data suggest that PTH blocks entry of cells into S phase and inhibits cell proliferation as the consequence of an increase in p27Kip1, which is mediated through the protein kinase A pathway. Expand
Nucleolar localization of parathyroid hormone-related peptide enhances survival of chondrocytes under conditions that promote apoptotic cell death.
Evidence is presented that PTHrP promotes some of its cellular effects by translocating to the nucleolus and a novel mechanism by which this peptide growth factor may modulate programmed cell death. Expand
Expression of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors in vascular disease.
Arterial lesions in cardiovascular diseases are characterized by proliferation and migration of smooth muscle cells as well as deposition of connective tissue matrix. Factors that stimulate vascularExpand
Mechanical stimuli induce vascular parathyroid hormone-related protein gene expression in vivo and in vitro.
It is proposed that mechanical events induce the release of PTHrP by SMC, possibly to serve as a compliance factor or an agent for vascular remodeling. Expand
Cell-specific signal transduction of parathyroid hormone (PTH)-related protein through stably expressed recombinant PTH/PTHrP receptors in vascular smooth muscle cells.
A single PTH/PTHrP receptor, though capable of coupling to different G proteins, signals exclusively through a cAMP-dependent pathway in vascular smooth muscle. Expand
Activation of cAMP–PKA signaling in vivo inhibits smooth muscle cell proliferation induced by vascular injury
Results of this study show that local administration of 3′,5′-cyclic AMP and phosphodiesterase-inhibitor drugs to rats markedly inhibits neointima formation after balloon injury in vivo and in smooth muscle cells in vitro. Expand
Overexpression of mouse D-type cyclins accelerates G1 phase in rodent fibroblasts.
Mammalian D-type cyclins are growth factor-regulated, delayed early response genes that are presumed to control progression through the G1 phase of the cell cycle by governing the activity of cyclin-dependent kinases, and cyclin D1, and most likely D2, are rate limiting for G1 progression. Expand
