Mitochondrial cAMP and Ca2+ metabolism in adrenocortical cells

Mitochondrial cAMP and Ca2+ metabolism in adrenocortical cells The biological effects of physiological stimuli of adrenocortical glomerulosa cells are predominantly mediated by the Ca2+ and the cAMP signal transduction pathways.

In addition to the well-known cytosolic interactions, a novel intramitochondrial Ca2+–cAMP interplay has been recently recognised. The cytosolic Ca2+ signal is rapidly transferred into the mitochondrial matrix where it activates Ca2+-sensitive dehydrogenases, thus enhancing the formation of NADPH, a cofactor of steroid synthesis. Quite a few cell types, including H295R adrenocortical cells, express the soluble adenylyl cyclase within the mitochondria and the elevation of mitochondrial [Ca2+] activates the enzyme, thus resulting in the Ca2+-dependent formation of cAMP within the mitochondrial matrix.

This cAMP-mediated positive feedback control of mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake may facilitate the rapid hormonal response to emergency situations since knockdown of soluble adenylyl cyclase attenuates aldosterone production whereas overexpression of the enzyme facilitates steroidogenesis in vitro.

Abstract

The biological effects of physiological stimuli of adrenocortical glomerulosa cells are predominantly mediated by the Ca2+ and the cAMP signal transduction pathways. The complex interplay between these signalling systems fine-tunes aldosterone secretion. In addition to the well-known cytosolic interactions, a novel intramitochondrial Ca2+–cAMP interplay has been recently recognised. The cytosolic Ca2+ signal is rapidly transferred into the mitochondrial matrix where it activates Ca2+-sensitive dehydrogenases, thus enhancing the formation of NADPH, a cofactor of steroid synthesis. Quite a few cell types, including H295R adrenocortical cells, express the soluble adenylyl cyclase within the mitochondria and the elevation of mitochondrial [Ca2+] activates the enzyme, thus resulting in the Ca2+-dependent formation of cAMP within the mitochondrial matrix. On the other hand, mitochondrial cAMP (mt-cAMP) potentiates the transfer of cytosolic Ca2+ into the mitochondrial matrix. This cAMP-mediated positive feedback control of mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake may facilitate the rapid hormonal response to emergency situations since knockdown of soluble adenylyl cyclase attenuates aldosterone production whereas overexpression of the enzyme facilitates steroidogenesis in vitro. Moreover, the mitochondrial Ca2+–mt-cAMP–Ca2+ uptake feedback loop is not a unique feature of adrenocortical cells; a similar signalling system has been described in HeLa cells as well.
