Stimulation of transient elevations in cytosolic Ca2+ is related to inhibition of P(i) transport in OK cells

Abstract

Stimulation of changes in cytosolic free calcium by parathyroid hormone was determined in three opossum kidney (OK) cell types, OK wild-type, OKP clone, and OKH clone. All three types of OK cells express parathyroid hormone (PTH)-sensitive adenylate cyclase and adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) production. However, only the OK wild-type and the OKP clone respond to PTH with inhibition of sodium-dependent P(i) transport and transient increases in cytosolic calcium. Characterization of the increases in cytosolic calcium in the wild-type and OKP clones revealed they were due in part to stimulation of Ca2+ release from intracellular stores, probably by inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3), which was stimulated by PTH. PTH-stimulated Ca2+ transients were also inhibited by protein kinase C activation. These data are compatible with PTH receptor-mediated phospholipase C activation and its feedback inhibition by protein kinase C. The OKH cells demonstrated a slow increase in cytosolic calcium when stimulated by cyclic nucleotides but no evidence for PTH stimulation of Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. Thus the absence of an inhibitory response of sodium-dependent P(i) transport to PTH in the OKH cells is associated with the absence of the rapid transient elevations of cytosolic Ca2+ such as those produced by IP3 production. These data suggest an important cooperative role for cAMP and the phospholipase C-stimulated Ca2+-protein kinase C message system in the regulation of P(i) transport.
