Adenosine-to-inosine RNA editing controls cathepsin S expression in atherosclerosis by enabling HuR-mediated post-transcriptional regulation


ABSTRACT: Adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing, which is catalyzed by a family of adenosine deaminase acting on RNA (ADAR) enzymes, is important in the epitranscriptomic regulation of RNA metabolism. However, the role of A-to-I RNA editing in vascular disease is unknown. Here we show that cathepsin S mRNA (CTSS), which encodes a cysteine protease associated with angiogenesis and atherosclerosis, is highly edited in human endothelial cells. The 3′ untranslated region (3′ UTR) of the CTSS transcript contains two inverted repeats, the AluJo and AluSx+ regions, which form a long stem–loop structure that is recognized by ADAR1 as a substrate for editing. RNA editing enables the recruitment of the stabilizing RNA-binding protein human antigen R (HuR; encoded by ELAVL1) to the 3′ UTR of the CTSS transcript, thereby controlling CTSS mRNA stability and expression. In endothelial cells, ADAR1 overexpression or treatment of cells with hypoxia or with the inflammatory cytokines interferon-γ and tumor-necrosis-factor-α induces CTSS RNA editing and consequently increases cathepsin S expression. ADAR1 levels and the extent of CTSS RNA editing are associated with changes in cathepsin S levels in patients with atherosclerotic vascular diseases, including subclinical atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, aortic aneurysms and advanced carotid atherosclerotic disease. These results reveal a previously unrecognized role of RNA editing in gene expression in human atherosclerotic vascular diseases. 1) Evaluation of transcriptome expression and RNA editing sites (A-to-G and T-to-C nucleotide mismatches) in poly(A) RNA-seq data derived from endothelial cell transcriptome after ADAR1 or ADAR2 knockdown (n=2 biological replicates per condition, total n=8 biological samples). 2) Evaluation of transcriptome expression and RNA editing sites (A-to-G and T-to-C nucleotide mismatches) in total-RNA-seq data derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (n=12 total biological samples; n=4 replicates per condition). 3) Evaluation of transcriptome expression and RNA editing sites (A-to-G and T-to-C nucleotide mismatches) in total-RNA-seq data derived from endothelial cell transcriptome under basal and hypoxic conditions (n=2 biological replicates per condition, total n=4 biological samples). 4) Evaluation of RNA editing sites (A-to-G and T-to-C nucleotide mismatches) in total RNA-seq data derived from endothelial cell transcriptome under basal and hypoxic conditions after ADAR1 knockdown (n=3 replicates per condition, total n=12 biological samples). 5) HuR iCLIP RNA-sequencing data derived from HUVEC HuR iCLIP after ADAR1 knockdown (scrambled control and siADAR1, n=1 per condition, total n=2 biological samples).
