Transcriptional Regulation of Human Prostaglandin-endoperoxide Synthase-2 Gene by Lipopolysaccharide and Phorbol Ester in Vascular Endothelial Cells


There exist two distinct isozymes of prostaglandinendoperoxide synthase (PES). PES-2 mRNA is synergistically induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and 12-Otetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in bovine arterial endothelial cells. On the other hand, PES-1 mRNA is constitutively expressed under these conditions. Therefore, the promoter activities of the human… (More)
