The Role of Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase (PI3K) in CO2 Stimulation of the Na+/HCO3- Cotransporter (NBC)

The Role of Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase (PI3K) in CO2 Stimulation of the Na+/HCO3-... The basolateral Na+/HCO3- cotransporter (NBC) is the major pathway for bicarbonate reabsorption in the renal proximal tubule cells. The cotransporter activity is enhanced by 10% CO2. Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) has been shown to regulate the function and trafficking of cellular proteins by promoting their translocation to the plasma membrane. Therefore, we sought to examine the role of PI3K in CO2-mediated stimulation of NBC activity in OK cells. Our studies showed that wortmannin, a well-characterized PI3K inhibitor, had no effect on baseline NBC activity but prevented the stimulatory effect of 10% CO2. This effect was concentration-dependent and time-dependent. Another inhibitor of PI3K, LY294002, also prevented the CO2-mediated increase in NBC activity. CO2 stimulation of the cotransporter was paralleled by an increase in PI3K enzyme activity and this effect was blocked by wortmannin. Biotinylation studies also showed that 10% CO2 increased the immunoreactive NBC in the basolateral membranes and this was prevented by wortmannin. We previously showed that 10% CO2 stimulation of NBC activity involves the Src family kinase pathway. In the current studies, CO2 stimulation significantly increased Src phosphorylation and this effect was abrogated by wortmannin. In summary, CO2 stimulation of NBC is mediated at least in part by increased immunoreactive NBC protein in the basolateral membrane, a process which requires the interaction of PI3K with Src family kinase. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Membrane Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

The basolateral Na+/HCO3- cotransporter (NBC) is the major pathway for bicarbonate reabsorption in the renal proximal tubule cells. The cotransporter activity is enhanced by 10% CO2. Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) has been shown to regulate the function and trafficking of cellular proteins by promoting their translocation to the plasma membrane. Therefore, we sought to examine the role of PI3K in CO2-mediated stimulation of NBC activity in OK cells. Our studies showed that wortmannin, a well-characterized PI3K inhibitor, had no effect on baseline NBC activity but prevented the stimulatory effect of 10% CO2. This effect was concentration-dependent and time-dependent. Another inhibitor of PI3K, LY294002, also prevented the CO2-mediated increase in NBC activity. CO2 stimulation of the cotransporter was paralleled by an increase in PI3K enzyme activity and this effect was blocked by wortmannin. Biotinylation studies also showed that 10% CO2 increased the immunoreactive NBC in the basolateral membranes and this was prevented by wortmannin. We previously showed that 10% CO2 stimulation of NBC activity involves the Src family kinase pathway. In the current studies, CO2 stimulation significantly increased Src phosphorylation and this effect was abrogated by wortmannin. In summary, CO2 stimulation of NBC is mediated at least in part by increased immunoreactive NBC protein in the basolateral membrane, a process which requires the interaction of PI3K with Src family kinase.
