Abstract

Neuroblastoma × glioma hybrid cells (NG108-15), differentiated by treatment with 1.5% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and 0.5% fetal bovine serum, were used to measure the effect of angiotensin II and III (ANG II and ANG III) on the generation of inositol polyphosphates. ANG II increased the synthesis of inositol monophosphates (IP1), inositol diphosphates (IP2), and inositol trisphosphates (IP3) with maximal responses observed at 300, 120, and 30 sec, respectively. The percent increases above basal values at the maximal responses were 140% ± 9% (IP1), 142% ± 4% (IP2), and 132% ± 4% (IP3). This effect was not attenuated by pretreatment of the cells with pertussis toxin. Furthermore, both ANG II and ANG III increased the production of inositol polyphosphates in a dose-dependent manner with ED50 values of 145 nM and 11 nM, respectively. We conclude that differentiated NG108-15 cells express an ANG III selective receptor that mediates phosphatidylinositol breakdown through a pertussis toxin insensitive G-protein.
