6, No. NO donor drugs (nitrovasodilators) have therefore been used for more than a century to treat coronary artery disease, hypertension, and heart failure by preventing excess superoxide from deteriorating healthy vascular cells. The authors thank Florian Riess for help with ChIP. DNA synthesis was assessed by 5-bromo-2′deoxyuridine (BrdU) labeling (Roche) as described previously (Djordjevic et al., 2005b) after exposure to hypoxia for 4 h. Similarly, total cell numbers were evaluated after stimulation by hypoxia for 4 h by cell counting in a standard hemocytometer (Paul Marienfeld, Lauda-Königshofen, Germany). This indicates that the relatively low amounts of p47 phox protein in remaining viable cells at 5 days were sufficient to support significant per cell correction of NADPH oxidase function for almost the duration of the neutrophil lifespan between 5 and 90 hours in circulation. 9-10, 23 February 2016 | Diabetes, Vol. We found that hypoxia rapidly enhanced NOX4 mRNA and protein levels in pulmonary artery smooth-muscle cells (PASMCs) as well as in pulmonary vessels from mice exposed to hypoxia. 20, No. However, after prolonged hypoxia, adaptive processes take place, among them the HIF-1α–dependent up-regulation of NOX4, which then allows restoration and even elevated ROS production immediately after reoxygenation. Data represent % change of NOX4 mRNA levels versus normoxic control (100%; n = 3, *p < 0.05 vs. control). Finally, to analyze whether ROS mediate NOX4-dependent proliferation under conditions of elevated HIF-1α levels, PASMCs were pretreated with vitamin C which can act as an antioxidant. In line, NOX4 protein levels were also elevated by hypoxia peaking at 4–8 h (Figure 1C). 18, No. 1, 25 December 2010 | Oncotarget, Vol. (B) Proliferative activity was determined by BrdU incorporation. 12, 13 May 2017 | Antioxidants, Vol. First-strand cDNA was synthesized from 1 μg RNA using reverse transcriptase (Invitrogen, Karlsruhe, Germany). (C and D) PASMCs were transfected with plasmids encoding for HIF-1α or NOX4 or control plasmid (Ctr) and treated with VitC for 60 min. Cell migration was measured using a 35-mm gridded μ-dish (Ibidi, Martinsried, Germany). HIF-1α binding to chromatin was revealed after background subtraction as relative amount of the input used. Expression of vectors encoding two different shRNAs against NOX4 decreased not only NOX4 induction by hypoxia (Figure 6C), but also the proliferative activity of PASMCs under these conditions (Figure 6, A and B), suggesting that HIF-1α–dependent NOX4 induction was important for the proliferative activity of PASMCs in response to hypoxia. In contrast to our findings of an immediate effect of hypoxia on NOX4 expression, however, the effect of chronic hypoxia on NOX4 expression may not be a direct one, but may be due to secondary effects mediated by growth factors, vasoactive peptides, or cytokines induced by chronic hypoxia as has been suggested earlier (Ismail et al., 2009). 94, No. 4, 16 March 2016 | Scientific Reports, Vol. Cells were exposed to hypoxia for 4 h, and ROS levels were measured by EPR using the spin-trap CMH. 174, No. PASMCs were plated to a density of 70% and cultured for 24 h. Transfection efficiency was on average 40%. 17, Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, Vol. 1, 25 October 2017 | Cancers, Vol. Because NOX4-dependent NADPH oxidases have been shown to generate ROS, we hypothesized that enhanced levels of HIF-1α should be able to increase ROS levels via NOX4.

In addition, immunohistochemistry was performed from lung tissue sections from normoxic and hypoxic mice (Figure 2D). 108, Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, Vol. [14] Similar loss is observed in schizophrenia, and the results may point at the NADPH oxidase as a possible player in the pathophysiology of the disease. 10, No. (C) NOX4 and HIF-1α protein levels were determined by Western blot analyses. In addition, hypoxia or HIF-1α overexpression enhanced migration of PASMCs, and these responses were also prevented by depletion of NOX4 (Figure 7C). Vascular smooth-muscle cells express NOX1-, NOX4- and NOX5-containing enzymes, whereas endothelial cells express in addition the NOX2 protein (Gorlach et al., 2000; Cheng et al., 2001; Bedard and Krause, 2007; BelAiba et al., 2007). Djordjevic T., Pogrebniak A., BelAiba R. S., Bonello S., Wotzlaw C., Acker H., Hess J., Gorlach A. (C) ROS levels were evaluated by DHE fluorescence. [19], The membrane-bound vascular enzyme is composed of five parts: two cytosolic subunits (p47phox and p67phox), a cytochrome b558 which consists of gp91phox, p22phox and a small G protein Rac. (A and B) Pulmonary artery smooth-muscle cells (PASMCs) were treated with vitamin C (VitC, 100 μM) for 60 min before exposure to hypoxia for 4 h. (A) ROS levels were evaluated by DHE fluorescence. 2017, Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, Vol. This group of multicomponent enzymes generates superoxide anion radicals in a regulated manner by allowing the transfer of electrons from NADPH via a catalytic core protein (NOX) containing flavin and heme moieties to molecular oxygen. To get more insight into the complex cross‐talk between the O2 – and NO generating systems we tested the effects of NO on the expression of the NADPH oxidase subunit Nox1 as well as the activity of the NADPH oxidase.

Rac-1 promotes pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell proliferation by upregulation of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, role of NFkappaB-dependent hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha transcription, Reciprocal regulation of Rac1 and PAK-1 by HIF-1alpha: a positive-feedback loop promoting pulmonary vascular remodeling. NOX4 mediates proliferative activity by HIF-1α and hypoxia. Furthermore, our findings may provide a molecular link for previous reports describing enhanced HIF-α levels as well as NOX4 levels in pulmonary hypertension induced by chronic hypoxia (Yu et al., 1998, 1999; Brusselmans et al., 2003; Mittal et al., 2007), although our findings clearly demonstrate that up-regulation of NOX4 by HIF-1α takes place already after 4 h of hypoxia. 18, Free Radical Biology and Medicine, Vol. A functional relevance of NOX4 up-regulation under hypoxic conditions was further shown by our findings that hypoxia induces proliferation as well as migration of PASMCs in a NOX4-dependent manner. Because hypoxia increased the levels of NOX4, we next tested the contribution of NOX4 to ROS generation after hypoxia. The active enzyme is assembled from a membrane-bound flavocytochrome B, a heterodimer composed of gp91phox and p22phox subunits, and cytosolic regulatory components, including p47phox, p67phox, p40phox, and Rac GTPase.

These findings indicate that acute hypoxia diminishes ROS levels, and this response is even maintained after short-term reoxygenation (as in our experimental set-up). Quantification was performed using ΔCT calculation. The number of migrated cells was counted. 12, 10 September 2019 | PLOS ONE, Vol. This response was dependent on the hypoxia-inducible transcription factor HIF-1α because overexpression of HIF-1α increased NOX4 expression, whereas HIF-1α depletion prevented this response. 319, No. It is a heterodimer composed of an inducible α-subunit (HIF-1α) and a constitutive β-subunit and has been implicated in physiological and pathophysiological responses toward hypoxia (Wenger et al., 2005), but has also been shown to be up-regulated under nonhypoxic conditions (Richard et al., 2000; Gorlach et al., 2001; Gorlach and Kietzmann, 2007). Within this complex, the cytochrome b-245 alpha chain has a beta chain partner (produced from the CYBB gene). (A) Pulmonary artery smooth-muscle cells (PASMCs) were transfected with plasmids coding for NOX4 or for HIF-1α and were cotransfected with shRNA against NOX4 (siN4I) or with control shRNA (siCtr). 10, Folia Pharmacologica Japonica, Vol. In vitro studies have found that the NADPH oxidase inhibitors apocynin and diphenyleneiodonium, along with the antioxidants N-acetyl-cysteine and resveratrol, depolymerized the actin, broke the adhesions, and allowed foam cells to migrate out of the intima.[12][13].

In fact, vitamin C decreased ROS production following 4 h of hypoxia, and prevented induction of ROS levels by NOX4 or HIF-1α (Figure 8, A and B). 6, Free Radical Biology and Medicine, Vol. 4, No. 6, No. Critical component of the membrane-bound oxidase that generates superoxide. Cells were exposed to hypoxia (Hyp) or were cotransfected with a plasmid coding for HIF-1α. Values are presented as means ± SD. Total RNA from PASMCs (10–15 μg) was separated on 1.3% agarose gels, transferred to nylon membranes, and cross-linked by UV irradiation. Interestingly, when ROS levels were determined by DHE fluorescence after exposure of PASMCs to 30 min of hypoxia, a condition, where NOX4 levels were not elevated, yet, ROS levels were decreased compared with normoxic cells (Figure 5B). 11, 30 September 2011 | Molecular Biology of the Cell, Vol. The phagocyte NADPH oxidase NOX2, also named gp91 phox, is the prototypical catalytic subunit of NADPH oxidase. Human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293, ATCC CRL-1573, Manassas, VA) and human hepatoblastoma cells (HepG2, ATCC HB-8065) were grown in DMEM (GIBCO, Darmstadt, Germany) supplemented with 10% fetal calf serum, 100 U/ml penicillin, and 100 μg/ml streptomycin. This sequence contained the essential core sequence for HIF binding and was also very similar to other HIF target genes in the flanking sequences (Wenger et al., 2005), and mutation of this HRE abolished NOX4 promoter activation by hypoxia. 18, No. A plant homolog of the neutrophil NADPH oxidase gp91phox subunit gene encodes a plasma membrane protein with Ca2+ binding motifs. 4, 13 June 2013 | Cell Biochemistry and Function, Vol. Cell suspension was scanned 20 times at 37°C for a total of 10 min in an EPR spectrometer with temperature control (e-scan, Noxygen) with the following parameters: microwave power = 23.89 mW; center field = 3459–3466 G; modulation frequency = 86 kHz; scan time 10.49 s per scan; and modulation amplitude = 2.93 G.

Excessive production of ROS in vascular cells causes many forms of cardiovascular disease including hypertension, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and ischemic stroke. Chromatin immunoprecipitation confirmed HIF-1α binding to the NOX4 gene. NADPH oxidase (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase) is a membrane-bound enzyme complex that faces the extracellular space. Mutations in the NADPH oxidase subunit genes cause several Chronic Granulomatous Diseases (CGD), characterized by extreme susceptibility to infection. In support, NOX4 has been described to contribute to PASMC proliferation also in response to chronic hypoxia, although, in contrast to our findings, this delayed effect seemed to be indirectly mediated by TGFβ1 (Ismail et al., 2009).
