Effect of 17-beta-estradiol and progesterone on angiotensin II-induced changes in inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate content and protein kinase C activity in anterior pituitary

, : Effect of 17-beta-estradiol and progesterone on angiotensin II-induced changes in inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate content and protein kinase C activity in anterior pituitary. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 275(1): 7-10

Angiotensin II (AngII) is known to act in the anteriorpituitary through phosphatidiloinositol breakdown, increasing the level of inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3)) and diacyloglycerol (DAG), a potential activator of protein kinase C (PKC). We examined the effect of estradiol and progesterone treatment in vivo on IP(3) levels and activity of PKC under the influence of AngII. Three groups of intact female rats received in vivo injections of 17-beta-estradiol, progesterone, and oil (control) for five days, and then the in vitro effect of AngII was examined using homogenate of the anterior pituitary. AngII increased either the IP(3) concentration or the synapsin I phosphorylation catalyzed by PKC. Estradiol enhanced the basal (without AngII) IP(3) level and PKC activity induced by AngII. Progesterone did not change the basal and AngII-induced IP(3) concentrations. On the other hand, it decreased the basal PKC activity and blocked the effect of AngII. Our data suggest that ovarian steroids can modulate the effect of AngII on the anterior pituitary gland.
