PAI-2 Plays a Pivotal Role in Eye Infections

According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor Type 2 (PAI-2) plays an important role in diseases of the eye. This is a protein which is founding skin and the tissue covering the eyes.// The researchers, led by Mina Massaro-Giordano, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania’s Scheie Eye Institute, and Marcella Macaluso, Ph.D., of the Sbarro Institute for Cancer Research at Temple University (http://www.shro.org), published their study.

‘Cytoplasmic and nuclear interaction between Rb family proteins and PAI-2: a physiological crosstalk in human corneal and conjunctival epithelial cells,’ in Cell Death and Differentiation (http://www.nature.com/cdd).They recently presented their findings at the annual meeting of the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) in Florida, which was attended by over 10,000 researchers. PAI-2, in either extracellular or secreted form, is a multifunctional protein that plays a role in cell differentiation, in prevention of programmed cell death, in the regulation of cell proliferation, in the inhibition of microbial proteinases and in the protection against stromal degradation.

High levels of the PAI-2 protein are associated with a good prognosis in breast cancer, small cell lung, ovarian cancer, and inhibition of metastasis. PAI-2 also plays a role in inflammation on the surface of the eye. In their study, the Penn and Temple researchers demonstrate for the first time an interaction between PAI-2 and the tumor suppressing gene Rb2/p130 in the nucleus of the epithelial cells in the cornea and conjunctiva. According to the researchers, this interaction with Rb2/p130 and chromatin modeling enzymes may affect how PAI-2 is expressed. ‘There is a different expression of the protein between the epithelium of the cornea and conjunctiva cells,’ says Massaro-Giordano, an assistant professor of ophthalmology, cataract and refractive surgery at Sche ie. ‘This may help us understand the molecular mechanisms that dictate the different expression profiles of PAI-2 in human corneal and conjunctival epithelial cells.’
