Abstract

We have examined the activation of a phospholipase C signal transduction pathway by a B2-bradykinin receptor in the human astrocytoma cell line D384 and how this influences D1-dopamine receptor stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation. Addition of bradykinin to D384 cells resulted in a concentration-dependent (10(-11)-10(-6) M) increase in the accumulation of [3H]inositol phosphates and a similar concentration-dependent transient increase in specific [3H]beta-phorbol-12,13-dibutyrate binding which is indicative of translocation of protein kinase C from the cytosol to the membrane. Changes in intracellular Ca2+ of single cells, measured using the fluorescent indicator dye fura-2, indicated that bradykinin produced a rapid, but transient, increase in intracellular calcium. The Ca2+ response was largely independent of extracellular Ca2+ supporting the idea that receptor activation leads to mobilization of Ca2+ from intracellular stores. However, extracellular Ca2+ was required for a response to a rechallenge with bradykinin. The bradykinin B2-receptor agonist kallidin increased cytosolic Ca2+ in a similar manner to bradykinin. The Ca2+ response to bradykinin could be partially reduced in the presence of the B2-receptor antagonist [D-Arg0-Hyp,D-Phe7,beta-(2-Thienyl)-Ala5,8]-bradykinin, whereas the B1-receptor agonists (Des-Arg9]-bradykinin and [Des-Arg10]-kallidin were ineffective. Bradykinin was also found to attenuate dopamine stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation in D384 cells, at similar concentrations previously observed to stimulate the phospholipase C signal transduction pathway, in the presence of the phosphodiesterase inhibitor, rolipram. In contrast, no attenuation was observed in the presence of the phosphodiesterase inhibitor 1-isobutyl 3-methylxanthine, although the level of dopamine stimulated cyclic AMP observed was lower than in the presence of rolipram.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).
