Abstract

Titanium (Ti) particle is one of the prosthetic materials commonly used in implantation and has frequently been implicated in pathogenesis such as periprosthetic osteolysis. In the present study, we undertook to understand the intracellular signalling pathway stimulated by exogenous Ti at Rat-2 fibroblasts. By reporter gene analysis following transient transfections, exogenous Ti was shown to stimulate c-fos serum response element (SRE)-dependent luciferase activities in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, Ti-induced SRE activation was shown to be dramatically repressed by RacN17, a dominant negative mutant of Rac1, suggesting that Rac GTPase is essential for the signalling of Ti to c-fos SRE. Furthermore, pretreatment with MAFP, an inhibitor of cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2), MK886, an inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO), or indomethacin, a general inhibitor of cyclooxygenase (COX), also significantly repressed Ti-induced SRE activation, suggesting mediatory roles of cPLA2 and subsequent arachidonic acid (AA) metabolisms to leukotrienes (LTs) and prostaglandins (PGs) in the Ti signalling to c-fos SRE. Consistent with these results, intracellular levels of leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) were Rac-dependently elevated in cells exposed to Ti particles.
