Specific Isoforms of Protein Kinase G Downregulate the Transcription of Cyclin D1 in NIH3T3

PKG, Cyclin D1, c-fos, NF-κB, CRE
To elucidate the role of PKG isoforms in transcriptional control of cyclin D1, we employed a series of expression vectors of PKG 1α and PKG 1β which encode HA-tagged wild type and constitutively active (SD and ΔN) mutants. Our present study demonstrates that both the constitutively active mutants of PKG 1β downregulate the transcription of cyclin D1 when transiently transfected in NIH3T3 cells, whereas PKG 1α mutants show weak inhibition. We further studied the transcriptional regulators of cyclin D1, such as, c-fos, NF-κB, and CRE by using the luciferase reporter assay. Constitutively active mutants of PKG 1β showed marked transcriptional downregulation of c-fos in NIH3T3 cells, whereas PKG 1α downregulated c-fos to a lesser extent. We also found that the constitutively active mutants of PKG negatively regulated the activation of NF-κB and CRE, suggesting their involvement in the regulation of cyclin D1.
