Abstract

The mouse intestinal neuroendocrine tumor cell line STC-1 secretes cholecystokinin (CCK) and other hormones. We investigated the role of Ca2+, calmodulin (CaM), and protein kinase C (PKC) in the regulation of CCK release from STC-1 cells. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (TPA) significantly stimulated CCK release. Staurosporine significantly inhibited CCK release from STC-1 cells stimulated by TPA in a dose-dependent manner. The absence of extracellular calcium completely inhibited CCK release from TPA-stimulated STC-1 cells. Neurotensin did not stimulate CCK release from these cells. W-7, a CaM antagonist, reduced CCK release from STC-1 cells stimulated by bombesin in a dose-dependent manner. These findings suggest that CaM and PKC play an important role in the regulation of CCK release from STC-1 cells stimulated by bombesin.
