AKR1B3 mRNA is expressed in preadipocytes, and its level increases about 4fold at day 1 after initiation of adipocyte differentiation, and then quickly decreases the following day to a level lower than that in the preadipocytes
expression is significantly up-regulated by oestradiol plus progesterone at oestrus and the mid phase of pseudopregnancy and is also up-regulated by a single treatment with progesterone at late pseudopregnancy. Simultaneous incubation with oestradiol and progesterone up-regulates prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase PTGS2 gene expression at oestrus and mid-luteal phase. Treatment with oestradiol and /or progesterone affects neither prostaglandin F2alpha secretion nor prostaglandin F2alpha synthase expression at any phase after 12 h of culture
interleukin IL-1beta is able to upregulate COX-2 and AKR1B1 proteins as well as prostaglandin F2alpha production under normal glucose concentrations. The promoter activity of AKR1B1 gene is increased by IL-1beta particularly around the multiple stress response region
