Abstract: Cell-surface proteoglycans have been known to be involved in many functions including interactions with components of the extracellular microenvironment, and act as co-receptors which bind and modify the action of various growth factors and cytokines. The purpose of this study was to determine the regulation by growth factors and cytokines on cell-surface proteoglycan gene expression in cultured human periodontal ligament (PDL) cells. Subconfluent, quiescent PDL cells were treated with various concentrations of serum, bFGF, PDGF-BB, TGF-beta1, IL-beta1, and IFN-gamma. RT-PCR technique was used, complemented with Northern blot for syndecan-1, to examine the effects of these agents on the mRNA expression of five cell-surface proteoglycans (syndecan-1, syndecan-2, syndecan-4, glypican and betaglycan). Syndecan-1 mRNA levels increased in response to serum, bFGF and PDGF-BB, but decreased in response to TGF-beta1, IL-1beta and IFN-gamma. In contrast, syndecan-2 mRNA levels were upregulated by TGF-beta1 and IL-1beta stimulation, but remained unchanged with the other agents. Betaglycan gene expression decreased in response to serum, but was upregulated by TGF-beta1 and unchanged by the other stimulants. Additionally, syndecan-4 and glypican were not significantly altered in response to the regulator molecules studied, with the exception that glypican is decreased in response to IFN-gamma. These data demonstrate that the gene expression of the five cell-surface proteoglycans studied is differentially regulated in PDL cells lending support to the notion of distinct functions for these cell-surface proteoglycans.
