dc.description.abstractEndoglin (CD105) is a homodimeric membrane glycoprotein, which acts as a TGF-β coreceptor in the vasculature and plays an important role in cardiovascular development and vascular remodelling. To isolate putative genes regulated by endoglin expression, a PCR-based RNA fingerprinting technique was carried out. Myoblasts stably transfected with endoglin showed a decrease in the expression of lumican both at the RNA and protein levels. Lumican is a proteoglycan of the extracellular matrix, belonging to the SLRP (Small Leucine-Rich Repeat Proteoglycans) family. Lumican down-regulation by endoglin appeared to be controlled, at least in part, at the transcriptional level, as indicated by RT-PCR, and transient transfection experiments using a lumican promoter reporter based vector. This inverse correlation between endoglin and lumican expression was substantiated by immunohistochemical staining of vessels from human tissues. Thus, cells belonging to the high endothelia, such as tonsil, express a large amount of endoglin, and the lumican content of their matrix is considerably reduced. Conversely, in resting endothelia, such as that of large vessels, the expression of endoglin is reduced whereas the amount of lumican is greatly increased. The inverse regulation in the expression of endoglin and lumican was also evident after TGF-β treatments since endoglin was up-regulated, whereas lumican was down-regulated by this cytokine. This report describes for the first time a relationship between endoglin and lumican expressiones_ES
