Abstract

The role of phospholipase C (PLC) in exocytosis has been investigated using digitonin permeabilized, [(3)H]noradrenaline ([(3)H]NA) loaded, bovine adrenal medullary chromaffin cells. The PLC inhibitor U-73122 caused a concentration-dependent suppression of Ca(2+)-evoked [(3)H]NA release but increased basal release (that occurring in the absence of Ca(2+)). Preincubation with antibodies against PLCgamma1 or PLCbeta3 (but not PLCdelta1, delta2, beta1 and beta2) also inhibited [(3)H]NA release evoked by Ca(2+) and increased basal release, indicating that only specific PLC isozymes are involved in these actions. Interestingly, PLCgamma1 (but not PLCbeta3) antibodies inhibited the ability of Ca(2+) to increase PLC activity in these permeabilized cells. These data therefore suggest that PLCgamma1 activity may have a specific role in regulating the exocytotic response from the adrenal chromaffin cell.
