Title
Regulation of fibrillar collagen-mediated smooth muscle cell proliferation in response to chemical stimuli by telomere reverse transcriptase through c-Myc
Abstract

Human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) and oncogene c-Myc have been shown to regulate cell proliferation. Our previous studies demonstrated that fibrillar collagen mediates vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) cycle progression and proliferation in response to platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB and interleukin (IL)-1β. However, whether hTERT and c-Myc are involved in these fibrillar collagen-mediated SMC responses remain unclear. The present study elucidated the regulatory role of hTERT and c-Myc in PDGF-BB/IL-1β-induced cell cycle progression in SMCs on fibrillar collagen and its underlying mechanisms. Our results showed that PDGF-BB and IL-1β exert synergistic effects to induce hTERT expression, but not its activity, in human arterial SMCs on fibrillar collagen. This PDGF-BB/IL-1β-induced up-regulation of hTERT contributes to cell cycle progression in SMCs through the up-regulation of cyclin-dependent kinase-6 and down-regulations of p27KIP1 and p21CIP1. In addition, PDGF-BB/IL-1β induces up-regulation of c-Myc in SMCs on fibrillar collagen; this response is mediated by the increased binding of hTERT, which can form complexes with TPP1 and hnRNPK, to the guanine-rich region of the c-Myc promoter and consequently contributes to cell cycle progression in SMCs on fibrillar collagen. Moreover, the PDGF-BB/IL-1β-induced hTERT and c-Myc expressions are regulated by phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt in SMCs on fibrillar collagen. Our findings provide insights into the mechanisms by which hTERT and c-Myc regulates SMC cell cycle progression and proliferation on fibrillar collagen in response to chemical stimuli.
