Macrophage-derived apoE, produced in the vessel wall, may have important effects during atherogenesis. The production of apoE by macrophages can be regulated at a transcriptional level by cellular differentiation state, cytokines and sterol loading. In addition, there are post-transcriptional and post-translational loci for regulation. We have recently identified an intermediate density cell membrane fraction in which the degradation of apoE can be modulated by sterols. Suppressing degradation of apoE in this fraction by pre-incubating cells in sterols led to enhanced apoE secretion. In this report we demonstrate that the suppressive effect of sterols on the degradation of newly synthesized apoE in this fraction depends on the presence on its C-terminal domain, by studying a macrophage cell line transfected to express a mutant form of apoE in which amino acids beyond amino acid 202 were deleted. In addition, two modulators of cellular sterol transport, progesterone and U1866A, inhibited the degradation of full-length apoE. In contrast, incubation of cells in the acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase inhibitor S58035 did not influence apoE degradation. As would be predicted based on the results of degradation assays, U1866A, but not S58035, increased the secretion of apoE from a cell line transfected to constitutively express full-length apoE cDNA. The effect of U1866A on apoE degradation, like the effect of sterol, required the presence of the apoE C-terminal domain. Our results indicate that alteration of intracellular sterol homeostasis by pre-incubation in sterols or by drugs that modify the subcellular transport of sterol, modulates the susceptibility of apoE to degradation and that this modulation requires the presence of C-terminal lipid binding domains.
