Abstract

Expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is associated with airway remodeling and tissue injury in asthma. However, little is known about how MMP-9 is up-regulated in airway epithelial cells. In this study, we show that phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) induces MMP-9 expression via a protein kinase Cα (PKCα)-dependent signaling cascade in BEAS-2B human lung epithelial cells. Pretreatment with either GF109203X, a general PKC inhibitor, or Gö6976, a PKCα/β isozyme inhibitor, inhibited PMA-induced activation of the MMP-9 promoter, as did transient transfection with PKCα antisense oligonuclotides. PMA activated NF-κB by phosphorylating IκB in these cells and this was also inhibited by GF109203X and Gö6976, suggesting that PKCα acts as an upstream regulator of NF-κB in PMA-induced MMP-9 induction. Our results indicate that a "PKCα-NF-κB"- dependent cascade is involved in the signaling leading to PMA-induced MMP-9 expression in the lung epithelium.
