Abstract

cAMP levels in CH3gsp cells (Q227L mutation of Gsα), in comparison with uninfected GH3 and GH3vt (with vector alone) cells, were two to three fold (P <0.01) higher (basal), and 10-20 fold (P <0.001) higher (in the presence of isobutyl methylxanthine, (IBMX)). Proliferation of GHSgsp cells after 7 days in culture, as determined by cell number and [3H]thymidine Incorporation, were up to 25% (respectively P <0.001 and P <0.02) higher. After chronic (4 days) but not acute (15 min) exposure to forskolin (10 μM) or dibutyryl cAMP (50 μM) all cell types showed a greater than 200% (P <0.001) increase in [3H]thymidine incorporation. Secretion of prolactin and growth hormone by GH3gsp cells were two to four fold (P <0.001) higher than GH3 and GH3vt cells after 4 h and 10-12 fold (P <0.001) higher after 8 h. In conclusion GH3 cells possessing Q227L have a higher proliferation rate and secrete higher levels of prolactin and growth hormone which are associated with higher levels of cAMP.
