Arteries and veins show marked differences in their anatomy, physiology and genetic expression pattern. In this study, we analyzed impact of overexpression or downregulation of arterial marker gene Hey2 and venous marker gene COUP-TFII in human venous and arterial endothelial cells on genes involved in arteriovenous differentiation. Lentiviral overexpression of venous marker gene COUP-TFII in arterial endothelial cells led to downregulation of NICD4, arterial marker gene Hey2 and EphrinB2. Downregulation of Hey2 could be mediated by direct binding of COUP-TFII to Hey2 promoter as shown by ChIP, EMSA and promoter analysis. Downregulation of Hey2 by shRNA causes downregulation of EphrinB2 expression. Overexpression of arterial marker Hey2 in venous endothelial cells did not change expression pattern of COUP-TFII. Downregulation of venous marker gene COUP-TFII in venous endothelial cells resulted in upregulation of VEGF-A, Dll4 and EphrinB2 expression. Our data support an important role of Hey2 and COUP-TFII in arteriovenous differentiation of human endothelial cells.
