Abstract We have isolated the prostaglandin H synthase-1 (PGHS-1) promoter from the human amnion cell line WISH by long template PCR. The fragment was 1124 base pairs in length and shared a 96% sequence identity with the sequence in GenBank. The putative transcription start site is located 18 bp upstream of the start codon. The sequence is TATA-less, but contains multiple Sp-1 sites and a GC box at -132. The fragment was subcloned into the promoterless reporter construct pBLCAT3 to produce the promoter reporter construct pPGHS1CAT. pPGHS1CAT expression in amnion-derived AV3 cells was inhibited by the pro-inflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin 1-beta (IL-1β). PGHS-1 mRNA levels however, were unchanged over a 16-h time course with either treatment. These results suggest that PGHS-1 transcription is regulated in a negative manner by cytokines in human amnion-derived cells.
