Effect of 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene on K+ transport in normal and sickle human red blood cells

, : Effect of 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene on K+ transport in normal and sickle human red blood cells. Journal of Physiology (Cambridge) 547(3): 903-911, 15 March

1-Chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB), which causes oxidative stress through depletion of reduced glutathione (GSH), increases the passive K+ permeability of red cells. In this paper, we investigated the effects of CDNB (1 mM) on the activities of the K+-Cl- cotransporter (KCC; measured as Cl--dependent K+ influx) and the Gardos channel (taken as clotrimazole-sensitive K+ influx, 5 microM) in human red cells, using 86Rb+ as a K+ congener. 45Ca2+ was used to study passive Ca2+ entry and active Ca2+ efflux via the plasma membrane Ca2+ pump. Both the Gardos channel and KCC were stimulated in both normal and sickle red cells. In sickle cells, stimulation of KCC was similar in oxygenated and deoxygenated cells; that of the Gardos channel was greater in deoxygenated cells. In normal red cells, stimulation of both pathways was greater in oxygenated cells (by 4 +/- 1-fold; all means +/- S.E.M., n = 3). The effects on the Gardos channel were dependent on extracellular Ca2+ and were associated with inhibition of the plasma membrane Ca2+ pump (by 29 +/- 3 %, P < 0.01) and increased Ca2+ sensitivity of the channel (EC50 for [Ca2+]i reduced from 260 +/- 26 to 175 +/- 15 nM; P < 0.05). Cell volume, pHi, ATP levels and passive Ca2+ entry were not affected by CDNB. The effects on KCC were inhibited (93 +/- 6 %) by prior treatment with the protein phosphatase inhibitor calyculin A (100 nM) and were not additive with stimulation by N-ethylmaleimide (1 mM), regardless of the order of addition. These findings are therefore consistent with inhibition of a regulatory protein kinase, although stimulation of the conjugate protein phosphatase(s) may also occur. KCC stimulation was also Ca2+ dependent. These findings are important for understanding how GSH depletion alters membrane permeability and how to protect against red cell dehydration.
