Abstract

TNF stimulated transcription and secretion of the metalloproteinases collagenase and stromelysin in porcine articular chondrocytes. TNF induced metalloproteinase transcription could be inhibited with either protein kinase inhibitors (H7 or staurosporine) or by raising intracellular cAMP levels. HA1004, a protein kinase inhibitor structurally related to H7 but with a higher Ki for protein kinase C had no effect on TNF induced message levels. TNF treatment of chondrocytes did not induce membrane associated PKC or increase intracellular cAMP levels. Our results are consistent with the involvement of a staurosporine and H7 sensitive protein kinase distinct from PKC in TNF signal transduction in chondrocytes.
