Transcriptional Regulation of Δ6-Desaturase by Peroxisome Proliferative-Activated Receptor δ Agonist in Human Pancreatic Cancer Cells: Role of MEK/ERK1/2 Pathway

Figure 2

Effects of the PPARδ agonist, selective inhibitor of MEK/ERK1/2, and EGF receptor-selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor on mRNA expression of Δ6-desaturase (Δ6D) in PANC-1 human pancreatic tumor cells. Cells were treated with GW0742, PD98059, or AG1478 as indicated. One microgram of extracted RNA was reverse transcribed, and real-time RT-PCR to amplify Δ6 desaturase and GAPDH cDNA fragments was performed as described. Relative expression with duplicate samples is given and was calculated by normalization to GAPDH and represented as mean ± SE from 3 independent experiments. * and **: and for Student’s -test, respectively.
