Abstract <p>ADAMTS1 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 1) is an inflammatory-induced gene. We have previously reported that ADAMTS1 was strongly but transiently expressed in the infarcted heart. In this study, we investigated whether a 3'-untranslated region (UTR) affects the mRNA stability of this gene. When stimulated with tissue necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, the expression level of ADAMTS1 mRNA rapidly increased, but the induction of ADAMTS1 mRNA peaked at 6h after stimulation, after which the expression levels of ADAMTS1 mRNA decreased. The 3'-UTR ADAMTS1 mRNA contains multiple adenine and uridine-rich elements, suggesting that the 3'-UTR may regulate gene stability. The addition of actinomycin D, an RNA synthesis inhibitor, demonstrated the decay of induced ADAMTS1 mRNA by TNF-alpha. Furthermore, a region containing multiple AUUUA motifs within the ADAMTS1 3'-UTR destabilized transfected Enhanced Green Fluorescence Protein (EGFP) mRNA expression. These results demonstrated that the ADAMTS1 3'-UTR may regulate the expression of ADAMTS1 mRNA.</p>
