Abstract

The regulatory role of activator protein-1 (AP-1) family members in mouse surfactant protein (SP) B (mSP-B) promoter function was assessed in the mouse lung epithelial cell line MLE-15. Expression of recombinant Jun B and c-Jun inhibited mSP-B promoter activity by 50-75%. Although c-Fos expression did not alter mSP-B transcription, Jun D enhanced mSP-B promoter activity and reversed inhibition of mSP-B by c-Jun or Jun B. A proximal AP-1 binding site (-18 to -10 bp) was identified that overlaps a thyroid transcription factor- 1 binding site. Mutation of this proximal AP-1 site blocked both Jun B inhibition and Jun D enhancement and partially blocked c-Jun inhibition of promoter activity. Promoter deletion mutants were used to identify additional sequences mediating the inhibitory effects of c-Jun in the distal region from -397 to -253 bp. The AP-1 element in this distal site (-370 to -364 bp) is part of a composite binding site wherein AP-1, cAMP response element binding protein, thyroid transcription factor-1, and nuclear factor I interact. Point mutation of the distal AP-1 binding site partially blocked c-Jun-mediated inhibition of the SP-B promoter. Both stimulatory (Jun D) and inhibitory (c- Jun/Jun B) effects of AP-1 family members on mSP-B promoter activity are mediated by distinct cis-acting elements in the mSP-B 5'-flanking region.
