Abstract

The purpose of this study is to assess the role of the protein kinase A (PKA) in regulating uptake of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), an estrogen precursor, by syncytiotrophoblasts. Forskolin, a PKA activator, significantly increased [3H]DHEAS uptake and the mRNA expression levels of organic anion transporter (OAT) 4 and CYP19A1 in choriocarcinoma JEG-3 cells, while other steroid sulfate transporters present in the placenta showed no change in expression level. KT5720, a PKA inhibitor, attenuated these effects of forskolin. Accordingly, the PKA pathway appears to play an important role in estrogen synthesis by cooperatively regulating OAT4 and steroidogenic enzymes in syncytiotrophoblasts.
