Abstract

In previous papers we showed that Ang II increases the proximal tubule Na+-ATPase activity through AT1/PKC pathway [L.B. Rangel, C. Caruso-Neves, L.S. Lara, A.G. Lopes, Angiotensin II stimulates renal proximal tubule Na+-ATPase activity through the activation of protein kinase C. Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1564 (2002) 310-316, L.B.A. Rangel, A.G. Lopes, L.S. Lara, C. Caruso-Neves, Angiotensin II stimulates renal proximal tubule Na+)-ATPase activity through the activation of protein kinase C. Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1564 (2002) 310-316]. In the present paper, we study the involvement of PI-PLCbeta on the stimulatory effect of angiotensin II (Ang II) on the proximal tubule Na+-ATPase activity. Western blotting assays, using a polyclonal antibody for PI-PLCbeta, show a single band of about 150 KDa, which correspond to PI-PLCbeta isoforms. Ang II induces a rapid decrease in PIP2 levels, a PI-PLCbeta substrate, being the maximal effect observed after 30 s incubation. This effect of Ang II is completely abolished by 5 x 10(-8) M U73122, a specific inhibitor of PI-PLCbeta. In this way, the effect of 10(-8) M Ang II on the proximal tubule basolateral membrane (BLM) Na+-ATPase activity is completely abolished by 5 x 10(-8) M U73122. The increase in diacylglycerol (DAG) concentration, an product of PI-PLCbeta, from 0.1 to 10 nM raises the Na+-ATPase activity from 6.1+/-0.2 to 13.1+/-1.8 nmol Pi mg(-1) min(-1). This effect is similar and non-additive to that observed with Ang II. Furthermore, the stimulatory effect of 10 nM DAG is completely reversed by 10(-8) M calphostin C (Calph C), an inhibitor of PKC. Taken together these data indicate that Ang II stimulates the Na+-ATPase activity of proximal tubule BLM through a PI-PLCbeta/PKC pathway.
