CD8+ T cells were negatively selected after 72 hours post activation with anti-CD2/CD3/CD28 microbeads with or without PGE2 or iso-PGE2, and inhibitors of PKA pathway. (A) (Top Left) hTERTexpression was quantified at equivalent PDs by qPCR (n = 5; *p = 0.0312; **p = 0.031 using one-sided T test because of decreased sample size for these conditions only; n = 4). (Top Middle) Representative gel showing effects of PGE2 (10−6 to 5−7M) and iso-PGE2 (10−6 to 5−7M) on telomerase activity of CD8+ T cells. Band intensity per lane correlates with relative telomerase activity of 1,250 CD8+ T cells in each treatment group. (B) Telomerase activity was measured as described in (A) with PGE2 or iso-PGE2 in the presence of 1 µM of a PKA inhibitor, H89 dihydrochloride. (C) CD8+ T cell cultures were established and chronically activated as previously described in the presence of the immune modulators. Telomere lengths were evaluated by Real-Time PCR and expressed as a percentage of telomere length of a human tumor cell line, SAOS (∼23Kb). Data represent telomere lengths over the lifetime from 3 representative donor cultures. (D) (Top) The relative amount of intracellular ROS was determined by the mean fluorescence intensity of DCFDA–stained, live CD8+ T cells after 24 h of culture with media alone or in the presence of PGE2, isoPGE2, ox-LDL, or H2O2 (pos control). (Bottom) Representative flow cytometry profile of MitoSOX red oxidation in PGE2- and iso-PGE2-treated T cells.
