Abstract The present study demonstrates, in both hybrid NG108-15 and mouse neuroblastoma N18TG2 cells, the presence and regulation of PDE5 mRNA during cell differentiation. PDE5 cDNA probes in Northern blot analysis recognize a V9 kb transcript in bovine lung as well as in mouse neuroblastoma cells. Hybridization on total RNA extracted from dibutyryl- cAMP-treated NG108-15 cells shows a 5-fold increase of PDE5 9 kb mRNA: such an increase is not observed in N18TG2 although we observed a similar increase in the enzymatic activity of both cell lines. Our data demonstrate that PDE5 gene expression can be regulated by cAMP and suggest the existence of a complex regulatory system for PDE5 activity.
