Abstract

Platelet-derived growth factors (PDGFs) and their receptors play an important role in cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and differentiation during normal development, and have also been implicated in tumorigenesis. In this study, we identified a novel variant of human PDGF receptor α mRNA (type II), which contains the same open reading frame as the known PDGF receptor α mRNA (type I) but a different 5′-untranslated region (5′-UTR). The 5′-UTR of the type II transcript was identified as a 363-bp exon located in intron 1 at position + 1210 to + 1572 relative to the transcriptional initiation site of the type I transcript. This type II transcript was expressed in a subset of human cell lines, such as MG-63 and MNNG/HOS cells. Moreover, transcription of the type II, but not the type I, was regulated by E2F-1 through an E2F-1-responsive site located at position + 1086/+ 1093 downstream of the transcriptional initiation site of the type I transcript. Furthermore, epigenetic modulation might be involved in the expression of the type II transcript. Our findings provide new insights into the regulatory mechanism of PDGF receptor α transcription in normal and tumor cells.
