Gα-coupled receptor stimulation was implied in the activation process of transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC)1/4 and TRPC1/5 heterotetrameric channels. The inactivation occurs due to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-biphosphate (PI(4,5)P) depletion. When PI(4,5)P depletion was induced by muscarinic stimulation or inositol polyphosphate 5-phosphatase (Inp54p), however, the inactivation by muscarinic stimulation was greater compared to that by Inp54p. The aim of this study was to investigate the complete inactivation mechanism of the heteromeric channels upon Gα-phospholipase C β (Gα-PLCβ) activation. We evaluated the activity of heteromeric channels with electrophysiological recording in HEK293 cells expressing TRPC channels. TRPC1/4 and TRPC1/5 heteromers undergo further inhibition in PLCβ activation and calcium/protein kinase C (PKC) signaling. Nevertheless, the key factors differ. For TRPC1/4, the inactivation process was facilitated by Ca release from the endoplasmic reticulum, and for TRPC1/5, activation of PKC was concerned mostly. We conclude that the subsequent increase in cytoplasmic Ca due to Ca release from the endoplasmic reticulum and activation of PKC resulted in a second phase of channel inhibition following PI(4,5)P depletion.

Store-operated interactions between plasmalemmal STIM1 and TRPC1 proteins stimulate PLCβ1 to induce TRPC1 channel activation in vascular smooth muscle cells.

Key Points: Depletion of Ca stores activates store-operated channels (SOCs), which mediate Ca entry pathways that regulate cellular processes such as contraction, proliferation and gene expression. In vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), stimulation of SOCs composed of canonical transient receptor potential channel 1 (TRPC1) proteins requires G protein α q subunit (Gαq)/phospholipase C (PLC)β1/protein kinase C (PKC) activity. We studied the role of stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1) in coupling store depletion to this activation pathway using patch clamp recording, GFP-PLCδ1-PH imaging and co-localization techniques.

Dual action of the Gα-PLCβ-PI(4,5)P pathway on TRPC1/4 and TRPC1/5 heterotetramers.

The transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) 1 channel is widely distributed in mammalian cells and is involved in many physiological processes. TRPC1 is primarily considered a regulatory subunit that forms heterotetrameric channels with either TRPC4 or TRPC5 subunits. Here, we suggest that the regulation of TRPC1/4 and TRPC1/5 heterotetrameric channels by the Gα-PLCβ pathway is self-limited and dynamically mediated by Gα and PI(4,5)P. Read More

Depletion of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca(2+) stores activates store-operated channels (SOCs) composed of canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) 1 proteins in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), which contribute to important cellular functions. We have previously shown that PKC is obligatory for activation of TRPC1 SOCs in VSMCs, and the present study investigates if the classic phosphoinositol signaling pathway involving Gαq-mediated PLC activity is responsible for driving PKC-dependent channel gating. The G-protein inhibitor GDP-β-S, anti-Gαq antibodies, the PLC inhibitor U73122, and the PKC inhibitor GF109203X all inhibited activation of TRPC1 SOCs, and U73122 and GF109203X also reduced store-operated PKC-dependent phosphorylation of TRPC1 proteins.

An essential role of PI(4,5)P₂ for maintaining the activity of the transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC)4β.

The transient receptor potential canonical 4 (TRPC4) channel is a Ca(2+)-permeable nonselective cation channel in mammalian cells and mediates a number of cellular functions. Many studies show that TRPC channels are activated by stimulation of Gαq-phospholipase C (PLC)-coupled receptors. However, our previous study showed that the TRPC4 current was inhibited by co-expression of a constitutively active form of Gαq (Gαq (Q209L)). Read More
