Abstract [en]

Proliferation of arterial smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) contributes considerably to enlargement of the arterial wall during atherosclerosis. The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is a well-known mitogen and chemoattractant for ASMCs. Quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction showed that cells appearing in atherosclerotic lesions, such as ASMCs, endothelial cells, and monocytes/macrophages, expressed mRNAs for both PDGF A and B chains in vitro, with the highest expression in endothelial cells. On proliferation, ASMCs and endothelial cells upregulated PDGF A mRNA. Differentiation of macrophages increased the amount of both mRNAs. Thus, the regulation of PDGF A- and B-chain expression depends on cell types and phenotypic states of the cells, which have also been found in vivo in human atherosclerotic lesions. PDGF A can be produced as short and long isoforms. The latter binds with high affinity to glycosaminoglycans. Irrespective of phenotype, only the minor part of total PDGF A mRNA consisted of the long variant in ASMCs, while endothelial cells produced 40% of total PDGF A as the long form. The differentiation of macrophages increased the production of the long PDGF A mRNA from 10% to 40%. Thus, increasing numbers of stimulated cells in the atherosclerotic lesion may increase the transcription of PDGF isoforms, and particularly of the long PDGF A isoform. Together with increasing amounts of ASMC-derived proteoglycans in developing lesions, this may contribute to accumulation of PDGF in the arterial wall matrix, resulting in prolonged stimulation of ASMCs.
