Both prostaglandins (PGs) and vitamin E are known to deeply affect immune responses. It is shown here that they both influence T cell-mediated immunity through reciprocal interference on the expression of cyclic-AMP responsive element binding (CREB) family proteins. CREB1 protein of human T lymphocytes was significantly modulated by a brief treatment of 5 to 10 min with PGE2. On the contrary, vitamin E appeared to be ineffective on the CREB1 behavior, while it abolished the PGE2-induced modulation of this protein. The CREB2 protein expression was also affected by PGE2 treatment, but a longer period of incubation (>20 min) was needed to observe these changes. Vitamin E showed a strong enhancing effect on CREB2 that was partially reversed by the subsequent treatment with PGE2. Our results support the idea that there is reciprocal interference between PGE2 and vitamin E on PGE2-induced signals in T lymphocytes.

Abstract

Both prostaglandins (PGs) and vitamin E are known to deeply affect immune responses. It is shown here that they both influence T cell-mediated immunity through reciprocal interference on the expression of cyclic-AMP responsive element binding (CREB) family proteins. CREB1 protein of human T lymphocytes was significantly modulated by a brief treatment of 5 to 10 min with PGE2. On the contrary, vitamin E appeared to be ineffective on the CREB1 behavior, while it abolished the PGE2-induced modulation of this protein. The CREB2 protein expression was also affected by PGE2 treatment, but a longer period of incubation (>20 min) was needed to observe these changes. Vitamin E showed a strong enhancing effect on CREB2 that was partially reversed by the subsequent treatment with PGE2. Our results support the idea that there is reciprocal interference between PGE2 and vitamin E on PGE2-induced signals in T lymphocytes. These data are in agreement with the reports concerning different cell systems and experimental conditions.
