Abstract

The mechanisms responsible for regulating epithelial ATP permeability and purinergic signaling are not well defined. Based on the observations that members of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC)1 family of proteins may contribute to ATP release, the purpose of these studies was to assess whether multidrug resistance-1 (MDR1) proteins are involved in ATP release from HTC hepatoma cells. Using a bioluminescence assay to detect extracellular ATP, increases in cell volume increased ATP release ∼3-fold. The MDR1 inhibitors cyclosporine A (10 μm) and verapramil (10 μm) inhibited ATP release by 69% and 62%, respectively (p < 0.001). Similarly, in whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, intracellular dialysis with C219 antibodies to inhibit MDR1 decreased ATP-dependent volume-sensitive Cl− current density from −33.1 ± 12.5 pA/pF to −2.0 ± 0.3 pA/pF (−80 mV, p≤ 0.02). In contrast, overexpression of MDR1 in NIH 3T3 cells increased ATP release rates. Inhibition of ATP release by Gd3+ had no effect on transport of the MDR1 substrate rhodamine-123; and alteration of MDR1-substrate selectivity by mutation of G185 to V185 had no effect on ATP release. Since the effects of P-glycoproteins on ATP release can be dissociated from P-glycoprotein substrate transport, MDR1 is not likely to function as an ATP channel, but instead serves as a potent regulator of other cellular ATP transport pathways.
