Vitamin D is essential compound for life having role not only in the regulation of calcium metabolism but also in the regulation of cell proliferation, immune responses, cardiovascular homeostasis and nervous system. These wide range of actions occur with the enzymatic conversion of vitamin D to 1a,25-dihydroxyvitamin D by cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs). While CYP27B1 provides the synthesis of hormonally active form of Vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D, CYP24A1 involves in catabolism of vitamin D. Quercetin, as one of the important member of polyphenols, is widely studied due to its abundant consumption with a diet, important role in human health as activators or inhibitors for biochemical reaction, antioxidant and anticancer activities. Recently, interaction between vitamin D receptor and quercetin has been reported at molecular level in a few studies. Quercetin may affect the expressions of vitamin D metabolizing CYP enzymes. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of quercetin on mRNA and protein expressions of vitamin D metabolizing CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 in embryonic kidney HEK293 cell line. The effects of quercetin on CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 mRNA and protein expressions in HEK-293 cell line were determined by qPCR and western blotting techniques, respectively. Results showed that, quercetin inhibited the proliferation of HEK-293 cells in a concentration dependent manner. IC50 value of quercetin on HEK-293 cell line was found as 60.72 lM. Quercetin treatment did not significantly affect the mRNA expressions of CYP27B1 and CYP24A1. While CYP24A1 protein expression was upregulated significantly (1.38 fold), CYP27B1 protein expression was not affected significantly with quercetin treatment compared to 0.35% DMSO containing untreated cells. These results suggested that quercetin may affect vitamin D metabolism negatively in HEK293 cells due to increase in CYP24A1 protein expression.


Effect of vitamin C and lipoic acid on streptozotocin-induced diabetes gene expression: mRNA and protein expressions of Cu-ZnSOD and catalase
Sadi, Goekhan; Yilmaz, Oekkes; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-02-01)
The involvement of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus has been confirmed by numerous studies. In this study, the expression of two antioxidant enzymes, superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase which are involved in the detoxification of reactive oxygen species was studied in the streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat liver tissues. The enzyme assays showed a significant decrease in both enzymes activities compared to control animals. The RT-PCR and Western-blot analysis results demonstra...
The effects of insertional mutations in comQ, comP, srfA, spo0H, spo0A and abrB genes on bacilysin biosynthesis in Bacillus subtilis
Karatas, AY; Cetin, S; Özcengiz, Gülay (Elsevier BV, 2003-04-15)
In Bacillus subtilis, two extracellular signaling peptides, ComX pheromone and CSF (competence and sporulation factor), stimulate the development of genetic competence and surfaction biosynthesis in response to high cell density (quorum sensing) by regulating the activity of transcription factor ComA. We recently showed that biosynthesis of dipeptide antibiotic bacilysin is linked to ComA and PhrC(CSF) in a Spo0K(Opp)-dependent manner by constructing phrC-, comA- and oppA-disrupted mutants of B. subtilis. I...
The NF-kappa B target genes ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 are differentially regulated during spontaneous differentiation of Caco-2 cells
Astarci, Erhan; Sade, Asli; Cimen, Ismail; SAVAŞ, BERNA; Banerjee, Sreeparna (Wiley, 2012-08-01)
Intestinal epithelial differentiation entails the formation of highly specialized cells with specific absorptive, secretory, digestive and immune functions. Cellcell and cellmicroenvironment interactions appear to be crucial in determining the outcome of the differentiation process. Using the Caco-2 cell line, which undergoes spontaneous re-differentiation when grown past confluency, we observed a loss of VCAM-1 (vascular cell adhesion molecule 1) mRNA expression, while ICAM-1 (intercellular cell adhesion m...
Regulation of CpG-induced immune activation by suppressive oligodeoxynucleotides.
Klinman, DM; Zeuner, R; Yamada, H; Gürsel, Mayda; Currie, D; Gursel, I (Wiley, 2003-12-01)
Bacterial DNA and synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) containing unmethylated "CpG motifs" stimulate an innate immune response characterized by the production of cytokines, chemokines, and polyreactive Igs that promote host survival following infectious challenge. Yet CpG-driven immune activation can have deleterious consequences, such as increasing the host's susceptibility to autoimmune disease. The immunomodulatory activity of CpG DNA can be blocked by DNA containing "suppressive" motifs. This work exp...
Effect of drought and salt stresses on the gene expression levels of antioxidant enzymes in lentil (lens culinaris m.) seedlings
Aksoy, Emre; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Department of Biology (2008)
This study was carried out for understanding of antioxidant mechanisms of lentil under abiotic stress conditions. For this aim, 14 days old lentil seedlings (Lens culinaris Medik cv. Sultan-1) were subjected to drought (20% PEG 6000), and salt (150 mM NaCl ) stress for 6, 12 and 24 hours, for 3, 5 and 7 days. PCR conditions for Mn SOD, Cu/Zn SOD, chloroplastic/mitochondrial GR, CAT and chloroplast /stromal APX antioxidant enzymes were optimized. Then, total RNA was isolated from stressed and non-stressed pl...
