Effects of newly reported arachidonic acid metabolites on microsomal Ca++ binding, uptake and release

, : Effects of newly reported arachidonic acid metabolites on microsomal Ca++ binding, uptake and release. Prostaglandins 26(1): 13-21

The 5,6-; 8,9-; 11,12- and 14,15-epoxyeicosatrienoic acids and their respective hydration products, the vic-diols, recently reported as metabolites of arachidonic acid in rat liver microsomes, were examined for effect on release of 45Ca from canine aortic smooth muscle microsomes. At 10(-6) M, the diols had no effect, but the 5,6-; 11,12- and 14,15-epoxyacids increased the loss of 45Ca. Further studies with the 14,15-epoxyacid demonstrated a dose-dependent decrease of Ca++ uptake (ATP present) in canine aortic microsomes in 0.03 mM Ca++, whereas Ca++ binding (ATP absent) was not affected. Ca++ uptake, binding and release in rat liver microsomes was similarly affected by the 14,15-epoxyacid, the major epoxyeicosatrienoic acid derivative produced by rat liver microsomal incubations. It is suggested that alterations in Ca++ metabolism might be a possible mechanism of action for these derivatives of arachidonic acid.
