Abstract

In the renal proximal tubule, external Ca2+ ([Ca2+]o) is required for parathyroid hormone to elevate cytosolic Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i). However, other hormones increase [Ca2+]i in the absence of [Ca2+]o. These differences may arise from a diversity of signal transduction pathways acting on external and internal Ca2+ pools. However, Ca2+ influx may be necessary to expedite and maintain the rise of [Ca2+]i for a period after the initial surge. In this study, F- was used to probe the roles of intracellular Ca2+ mobilization, Ca2+ influx, and phosphoinositide (PI) hydrolysis on the surge of [Ca2+]i in rat proximal tubules. In the presence of external Ca2+; 1-20 mM F- evoked incremental rises of [Ca2+]i in tubules loaded with aequorin. Whereas 10 mM F- increased [Ca2+]i in the absence of [Ca2+]o, the time constant for the [Ca2+]; surge was increased. These findings are consistent with a role of Ca2+ influx on the effect of F- on [Ca2+]i. Indeed, 10 mM F- also enhanced the uptake of 45Ca2+, and promoted Ca2+ influx in aequorin- and fura-2-loaded, Ca2+-deprived tubules. In tubules, F- also activated PI hydrolysis with a time course that paralleled Ca2+ mobilization. The effect of F~ on [Ca2+]i was not altered when the 39-kDa pertussis toxin substrate was inactivated with the toxin. This G protein was most likely Gi, because prostaglandin E2, an activator of Gi in tubules, dissociated the pertussis toxin-sensitive protein. The results support the notion that activation of a signal-transduction complex, the F- substrate, causes Ca2+ influx, mobilizes internal Ca2+, and activates PI hydrolysis in rat proximal tubules. The effect on Ca2+ mobilization does not appear to be regulated by the pertussis toxin-sensitive (Gi) protein. Although [Ca2+]o is not necessary for the expression of the effect of F- on [Ca2+];, Ca2+ influx may be a critical determinant for the [Ca2+]i surge within a finite period of time.
