Caveolin-1 is a principal component of caveolae membranes in vivo. Caveolin-1 mRNA and protein expression are down-regulated in NIH 3T3 cells in response to transformation by activated oncogenes, such as H-Ras(G12V) and v-Abl. The mechanisms governing this down-regulation event remain unknown. Here, we show that caveolin-1 gene expression is directly regulated by activation of the Ras-p42/44 MAP kinase cascade. Down regulation of caveolin-1 protein expression by Ras is independent of (i) the… CONTINUE READING
