Involvement of TRPC5 channels, inwardly rectifying K channels, PLCβ and PIP in vasopressin-mediated excitation of medial central amygdala neurons.

J Physiol 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, ND58203, USA.

Key Points: Activation of V vasopressin receptors facilitates neuronal excitability in the medial nucleus of central amygdala (CeM) V receptor activation excites about 80% CeM neurons by opening a cationic conductance and about 20% CeM neurons by suppressing an inwardly rectifying K (Kir) channels The cationic conductance activated by V receptors is identified as TRPC5 channels PLCβ-mediated depletion of PIP is involved in V receptor-elicited excitation of CeM neurons Intracellular Ca release and PKC are unnecessary for V receptor-mediated excitation of CeM neurons ABSTRACT: Arginine vasopressin (AVP) serves as a hormone in the periphery to modulate water homeostasis and a neuromodulator in the brain to regulate a diverse range of functions including anxiety, social behaviors, cognitive activities and nociception. The amygdala is an essential brain region involved in modulating defensive and appetitive behaviors, pain, and alcohol use disorders. Whereas activation of V receptors in the medial nucleus of the central amygdala (CeM) increases neuronal excitability, the involved ionic and signaling mechanisms have not been determined. Read More

TRP Channels and Small GTPases Interplay in the Main Hallmarks of Metastatic Cancer.

Front Pharmacol 2020 29;11:581455. Epub 2020 Sep 29.

Laboratoire de Cell Physiology, Université de Lille, Department of Life Sciences, Univ. Lille, Inserm, U1003-PHYCEL, Lille, France.

Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) cations channels, as key regulators of intracellular calcium homeostasis, play a central role in the essential hallmarks of cancer. Among the multiple pathways in which TRPs may be involved, here we focus our attention on the ones involving small guanosine triphosphatases (GTPases), summarizing the main processes associated with the metastatic cascade, such as migration, invasion and tumor vascularization. In the last decade, several studies have highlighted a bidirectional interplay between TRPs and small GTPases in cancer progression: TRP channels may affect small GTPases activity both Ca-dependent or Ca-independent pathways, and, conversely, some small GTPases may affect TRP channels activity through the regulation of their intracellular trafficking to the plasma membrane or acting directly on channel gating.

Specific Upregulation of TRPC1 and TRPC5 Channels by Mineralocorticoid Pathway in Adult Rat Ventricular Cardiomyocytes.

Cells 2019 12 23;9(1). Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Inserm, UMR-S 1180, Signalisation et Physiopathologie Cardiovasculaire, Université Paris-Saclay, 92296 Châtenay-Malabry, France.

Whereas cardiac TRPC (transient receptor potential canonical) channels and the associated store-operated Ca entry (SOCE) are abnormally elevated during cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure, the mechanism of this upregulation is not fully elucidated but might be related to the activation of the mineralocorticoid pathway. Using a combination of biochemical, Ca imaging, and electrophysiological techniques, we determined the effect of 24-h aldosterone treatment on the TRPCs/Orai-dependent SOCE in adult rat ventricular cardiomyocytes (ARVMs). The 24-h aldosterone treatment (from 100 nM to 1 µM) enhanced depletion-induced Ca entry in ARVMs, as assessed by a faster reduction of Fura-2 fluorescence decay upon the addition of Mn and increased Fluo-4/AM fluorescence following Ca store depletion.
