Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether the G-protein-linked angiotensin II receptor mediated inositol phosphate production involves a tyrosine phosphorylation (tyr phos) dependent pathway in the heart. Cardiomyocytes, in culture, from 7-day-old chick embryonic hearts were incubated with myo [3H] inositol for 18-24 h. Cells were incubated with LiCl to inhibit inositol 1-phosphate phosphatase and allow accumulation of inositol phosphates with angiotensin II (ang II) treatment. Inositol fractions were separated on column chromatography. Ang II produced significant (p < 0.01) increases of InsP1, InsP2, and InsP3, within 1 min of treatment of cardiomyocytes. Tyrosine kinase inhibition with genistein significantly (p < 0.05) reduced ang II induced inositol phosphate production. This did not occur with the analogue diazdien that is a very weak inhibitor of tyrosine kinase. The ability of ang II to induce tyr phos was demonstrated in whole cell lysates of cardiomyocytes immunoprecipitation with anti-P-Tyr antibodies. Genistein blunted this action of ang II. The rapid activation of a tyr phos dependent pathway by ang II was demonstrated by the similar time course of tyr phos of two different cardiac proteins, 70 and 195 kDa, and peak inositol phosphate production. Tyr phos of these cardiac proteins was mediated predominantly but not exclusively through the AT1 and II receptor subtype as it was completely blocked by the AT1 antagonist losartan, while the AT2 receptor antagonist PD123319 blunted ang II-induced tyr phos. These results demonstrate a novel role for a tyr phos dependent pathway in the heart for ang II-induced inositol phosphate production and strengthens the concept of the interaction of G-protein coupled receptors with tyrosine kinases.
