Abstract

Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) receptors represent one of the primary sites for negative feedback of the pituitary by adrenocortical glucocorticoid hormones; however, the molecular mechanisms involved have yet to be elucidated. The present study examines the mechanisms by which glucocorticoids regulate CRF-RI expression in the pituitary cellline, AtT-20. Treatment of these cells with dexamethasone resulted ina concentration- and time-dependent inhibition of CRF-RI mRNA that was significant by 1 hr and maximal after 4 hr. Levels of CRF-R1 mRNA then returned to control levels after 24 hr. Similar changes were observed when the cells were treated with corticosterone. Pro-opiomelanocortin mRNA was also decreased after dexamethasone pretreatment; however, the time course was much slower with a significant effect only detected after 6 hr. Further analysis of the mechanisms that mediate glucocorticoid regulation of CRF-R1 mRNA was conducted. These studies demonstrated that glucocorticoid incubation significantly decreases the rate of CRF-R1 gene transcription, as determined by nuclear run-on analysis. In addition, the results demonstrate that glucocorticoid incubation significantly decreases CRF-RI mRNA stability by approximately 50%. Thedown-regulation of CRF-R1 mRNA was dependent on de novo protein synthesis, as it was blocked by pretreatment with cycloheximide. This represents a novel mechanism for glucocorticoid negative feedback regulation of CRF-R1 expression.
