- 15-Hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase (15-PGDH) is the key enzyme that catalyses the conversion of prostaglandin E-2 to a keto metabolite. The expression of 15-PGDH is ubiquitously repressed in various human malignancies. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying down-regulation of 15-PGDH expression remain largely unknown. 15-Deoxy-o(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)), an endogenous ligand of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, has been reported to have anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic activities. In the present study, we have found that 15d-PGJ(2) induces expression and catalytic activity of 15-PGDH in human breast cancer (MDA-MB-231) cells. 15d-PGJ(2) decreased the level of CpG methylation in the 15-PGDH promoter in MDA-MB-231 cells as determined by the bisulphite genome sequencing and methyl-specific PCR. 15d-PGJ(2) inhibited the catalytic activity of methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) but did not influence its expression. Biotinylated 15d-PGJ(2) directly interacted with DNMT1 and reduced its catalytic activity. Chromatin-immunoprecipitation analysis revealed that 15d-PGJ(2) significantly attenuated DNMT1 binding to the activator protein-1 transcription factor present in the 15-PGDH promoter region. A nonelectrophilic analogue 9,10-dihydro-15d-PGJ(2) failed to suppress the methylation of CpG islands present in 15-PGDH promoter and did not affect both DNMT1 activity and 15-PGDH expression. These findings suggest that the alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl group present in 15d-PGJ(2) is essential for its inactivation on DNMT1 and expression of 15-PGDH. In conclusion, 15d-PGJ(2) plays as a hypomethylating agent through direct interaction with DNMT1 and consequently suppresses DNMT1-mediated hypermethylation of 15-PGDH promoter, leading to up-regulation of 15-PGDH expression.
