A murine keratinocyte cell line that is resistant to the growth-inhibitory effects of transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF beta 1) was examined for differential gene expression patterns that may be related to the mechanism of the loss of TGF beta 1 responsiveness. Cells that were resistant to the growth-inhibitory effects of TGF beta 1 (KCR cells) were derived from K-ras-transformed BALB/MK keratinocytes (KC cells). Using a subtractive hybridization procedure with KC and KCR mRNAs, we isolated a complementary DNA clone for murine protein disulfide isomerase (PDI). The mRNA for PDI is inhibited by TGF beta 1 treatment in the parental KC cells, but not in the TGF beta 1-resistant KCR cells. Similar PDI down-regulation also occurs in other TGF beta-sensitive cells, but not in a human pancreatic carcinoma cell line which is insensitive to the growth-inhibitory effects of TGF beta 1. The results suggest that misregulation of PDI, an important component of co- and posttranslational modification systems, may be involved in the mechanism by which some cells escape from the growth-inhibitory effects of TGF beta 1.
