Abstract

The influence of protein kinase C (PKC) activation on cyclic AMP production in GH3 cells has been studied. The stimulation of cyclic AMP accumulation induced by forskolin and cholera toxin was potentiated by 4β-phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate (PDBu). Moreover, PDBu, which causes attenuation of the maximal response to vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), als induced a small right shift in the dose-response curve for VIP-induced cyclic AMP accumulation. PDBu-stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation was unaffected by pretreatment of cells with pertussis toxin or the inhibitory muscarinic agonist, oxotremorine. PDBu stimulation of adenylate cyclase activity required the presence of a cytosolic factor which appeared to translocate to the plasma membrane in response to the phorbol ester. The diacylglycerol-generating agents thyroliberin, bombesin and bacterial phospholipase C each stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation, but, unlike PDBu, did not attenuate the stimulation induced by VIP. These results suggest that PKC affects at least two components of the adenylate cyclase complex. Stimulation of cyclic AMP accumulation is probably due to modification of the catalytic subunit, whereas attenuation of VIP-stimulation cyclic AMP accumulation appears to be due to the phosphorylation of a different site, which may be the VIP receptor.
