Abstract

The mortality rate for acute lung injury (ALI) is reported to be between 35-40%, and there are very few treatment strategies that improve the death rate from this condition. Previous studies have suggested that signaling through the prostaglandin (PG) I 2 receptor may protect against bleomycin-induced ALI in mice. We found that mice that overexpress PGI synthase (PGIS) in the airway epithelium were significantly protected against bleomycin-induced mortality and had reduced parenchymal consolidation, apoptosis of lung tissue, and generation of F 2-isoprostanes compared with littermate wild-type controls. In addition, we show for the first time in both in vivo and in vitro experiments that PGI 2 induced the expression of NADP (H): quinoneoxidoreductase 1 (Nqo 1), an enzyme that prevents the generation of reactive oxygen species. PGI 2 induction of Nqo 1 provides a possible novel mechanism by which this prostanoid protects against bleomycin-induced mortality and identifies a potential therapeutic target for human ALI.
