Inositol trisphosphate isomers in angiotensin II-stimulated adrenal glomerulosa cells


, : Inositol trisphosphate isomers in angiotensin II-stimulated adrenal glomerulosa cells. Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology 57(3): 163-168

The stimulation of phosphoinositide metabolism by angiotensin II (Ang II) was studied in [3H]inositol-labelled bovine adrenal glomerulosa cells. After separation of the phosphoinositols by ion-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography, it was shown that the formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5)P3) and inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate (Ins(1,3,4)P3) followed distinct kinetics. The first compound to increase upon stimulation with 10(-7) M Ang II was Ins(1,4,5)P3, which reached a maximum (250% of basal level) within 10 s. At lower concentrations of Ang II, this response was slower. The formation of Ins(1,4,5)P3 depended upon the concentration of Ang II, with an EC50 of 2.4 +/- 1.5 X 10(-9) M Ang II. The potency of Ang II in stimulating the turnover of phosphoinositides and in increasing the biosynthesis of aldosterone was very similar, whereas the peptide was ten times more potent in its ability to mobilize Ca2+. Ang II was also able to stimulate the production of Ins(1,4,5)P3 in permeabilized glomerulosa cells. This effect was mimicked by a non-hydrolysable analog of GTP (GTP gamma S), suggesting that a GTP binding protein is involved in the mechanism coupling the Ang II membrane receptor to phospholipase C. These results strengthen the view that Ins(1,4,5)P3 plays a key role as second messenger in the steroidogenic response to Ang II in adrenal glomerulosa cells.
