Abstract

We identified apolipoprotein (apo)D in a search for proteins upregulated in a posttranscriptional manner similar to fibronectin in motile smooth muscle cells (SMCs). To address the function of apoD in SMCs, we cloned a partial apoD cDNA from ovine aortic (Ao) SMCs using RT-PCR. We documented a 2.5-fold increase in apoD protein but no increase in apoD mRNA in Ao SMCs 48 hours after a multiwound migration assay (P<0.01). Confocal microscopy revealed prominent perinuclear and trailing edge expression of apoD in migrating SMCs but not in the confluent monolayer. Stimulation of Ao SMCs with 10 ng/mL platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB increased apoD protein expression (P<0.05). Moreover, PDGF-BB-stimulated migration of human pulmonary artery SMCs was suppressed by knock-down of apoD using RNAi. Stable overexpression of apoD in Ao SMCs cultured in 10% fetal bovine serum promoted random migration by 62% compared with vector-transfected cells (P<0.01). Overexpression of apoD or addition of exogenous apoD to a rat aortic SMC line (A10) stimulated their migration in response to a subthreshold dose of PDGF-BB (P<0.05). This was unrelated to increased phosphorylation of ERK1/2 or of phospholipase C-γ1, but correlated with enhanced Rac1 activation. This study shows that apoD can be expressed or taken up by SMCs and can regulate their motility in response to growth factors.
