Abstract

By cDNA cloning and differential screening, five genes that are regulated by transforming growth factor beta (TGF beta) in mink lung epithelial cells were identified. A novel membrane protein gene, TI 1, was identified which was downregulated by TGF beta and serum in quiescent cells. In actively growing cells, the TI 1 gene is rapidly and transiently induced by TGF beta, and it is overexpressed in the presence of protein synthesis inhibitors. It appears to be related to a family of transmembrane glycoproteins that are expressed on lymphocytes and tumor cells. The four other genes were all induced by TGF beta and correspond to the genes of collagen alpha type I, fibronectin, plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, and the monocyte chemotactic cell-activating factor (JE gene) previously shown to be TGF beta regulated.
