Abstract Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) responds to a variety of oxidative stresses. We examined whether HO-1 expression influences pro-thrombotic processes, in which the involvement of oxidative stress has been reported. Since HO-1 knockout mice with a C57/BL6J background were not viable, embryonic cells from HO-1 deficient mice (E11.5) were used. Cell viability, the level of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) expression and reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation of HO-1 deficient cells in response to the exposures to hydrogen peroxide and oxidized LDL were compared to those with wild-type cells. We also examined the effects of glutathione (GSH), desferrioxamine (DFO) and diphenyleneiodonium (DPI: an NADPH oxidase inhibitor) as well as of the HO reaction products, bilirubin (BR) and carbon monoxide (CO) on PAI-1 expression and ROS generation. PAI-1 expression and ROS generation were markedly elevated in HO-1 deficient cells compared to wild-type cells. Exposure to oxidized LDL significantly elevated PAI-1 expression and ROS production in HO-1 deficient cells. Interestingly, these increases in HO-1 deficient cells were significantly lowered by BR, CO, GSH and DPI while DFO had little effect. Furthermore, BR and CO were effective to improve viabilities of HO-1 deficient cells. These results suggest that HO-1 may be required to suppress ROS generation and the production of pro-thrombotic molecules such as PAI-1.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
