Abstract

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-γ has been implicated as a key player in the regulation of adiponectin levels via both transcriptional and posttranscriptional mechanisms. Herein, we show that PPAR-γ interacts with human antigen R (HuR) and that the PPAR-γ-HuR complex dissociates following activation of PPAR-γ by rosiglitazone, a specific ligand of PPAR-γ. This rosiglitazone-dependent dissociation of HuR from PPAR-γ leads to nucleocytoplasmic shuttling of HuR and its binding to the 3'-UTR of adiponectin mRNA. PPAR-γ with H321A and H447A double mutation (PPAR-γH321/447A), a mutant lacking ligand-binding activity, impaired HuR dissociation from the PPAR-γ-HuR complex, resulting in reduced nucleocytoplasmic shuttling, even in the presence of rosiglitazone. Consequently, rosiglitazone up-regulated adiponectin levels by modulating the stability of adiponectin mRNA, whereas these effects were abolished by HuR ablation or blocked in cells expressing the PPAR-γH321/447A mutant, indicating that the interaction of PPAR-γ and HuR is a critical event during adiponectin expression. Taken together, the findings demonstrate a novel mechanism for regulating adiponectin expression at the posttranscriptional level and suggest that ligand-mediated activation of PPAR-γ to interfere with interaction of HuR could offer a therapeutic strategy for inflammation-associated diseases that involve decreased adiponectin mRNA stability.-Hwang, J.
