The aim of our study was to investigate the physiologic mechanisms involved in eosinophil activation as an essential prerequisite to disrupting the biochemical cascade that triggers inflammation, thereby attenuating the effect of this activation or, ideally, preventing it from occurring. We have, therefore, examined the nature of the fMLP- and PAF-induced [Ca2+]i rise and the relationship between the [Ca2+]i rise and O2- production in human umbilical cord blood-derived eosinophils cultured in the presence of IL-3 and IL-5. These cells responded to fMLP or PAF (1 microM each) with an increase in [Ca2+]i (217.3 +/- 22.1 and 197.8 +/- 22.1 nM respectively) which was associated with production of O2- (40.2 +/- 8.2 and 35.2 +/- 7.6 pmol/min/10(6) cells respectively). The role of Ca2+ in the induced respiratory burst was studied by changing the availability of Ca2+ in the intra- and extracellular compartments. Removal or chelation of extracellular Ca2+ induced a reduction of both the fMLP and PAF-induced [Ca2+]i rise and O2- production. Chelation of intracellular Ca2+ induced a concentration-dependent inhibition of fMLP- and PAF-induced [Ca2+]i rise and caused a decrease in O2- production. SK&F 96365 had a stimulatory effect on PAF-induced [Ca2+]i rise and on fMLP-induced O2- production, this phenomenon was not observed with extracellular Ca2+ removal or chelation. Furthermore, Ni2+ exhibited an inhibition of both fMLP and PAF-induced [Ca2+]i rise and O2- production. Finally, both fMLP and PAF induced an increase in divalent cation influx that was further augmented by thapsigargin. Our results indicate that fMLP and PAF dependent O2- production in human eosinophils require intra- and extracellular Ca2+ and that Ca2+ influx is necessary for optimal activation. [less ▲]

Store-operated Ca2+ entry is referred to a capacitative current activated by Ca2+ -stores depletion in various non-excitable cells. Neutrophil-like HL-60 cells responded to N-formyl-L-Methionyl-L-Leucyl-L-Phenylalanine (fMLP) by an early O2- production preceded by a [Ca2+]i rise. Cell stimulation in the absence of extracellular Ca2+ resulted in a major reduction of [Ca2+]i rise and O2- production. A purported inhibitor of store-operated Ca2+ entry, SK&F 96365 (1-(beta-(3-(4-methoxy-phenyl)propoxyl)-4-methoxy-phenetyl)- 1H-imidazole hydrochloride), inhibited extracellular Ca2+ -dependent [Ca2+]i rise by 30% but did not alter O2- production. In conclusion, SK&F 96365 did not modify extracellular Ca2+ -dependent O2- production, despite a significant but limited reduction in fMLP-activated membrane Ca2+ fluxes which can be ascribed to store-operated Ca2+ entry. Furthermore, Ca2+ influx is necessary for a full induction and maintenance of the biological response. [less ▲]

Methoctramine, a selective M2 muscarinic cholinergic receptor antagonist, has been reported to activate phosphoinositide breakdown at high concentrations. Its polyamine structure suggests a putative activation of guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins). Incubation of methoctramine with rat peritoneal mast cells resulted in a dose-dependent noncytotoxic histamine release, with an EC50 of 20 microM and a maximum effect at 1 mM. Atropine, pirenzepine and HHSiD neither inhibited methoctramine-induced histamine release nor stimulated histamine release. Histamine release and inositol phosphates generation induced by methoctramine were both inhibited by pertussis toxin pretreatment. Benzalkonium chloride, a selective inhibitor of histamine secretion induced by basic secretagogues, inhibited the secretory response to methoctramine. [p-Glu5, D-Trp7,9,l0]-SPs5-11 (GPAnt-2), a well-characterized antagonist of G proteins, blocked the methoctramine-induced histamine release when the antagonist was allowed to reach its intracellular target by streptolysin O-permeabilization. The response to methoctramine was prevented by the hydrolysis of sialic acid residues of the cell surface by neuraminidase. The response of mast cells was restored by permeabilization of the plasma membrane. These results demonstrate that methoctramine, following its entry into the cell and the involvement of pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins, activates phosphoinositide hydrolysis leading to mast cell exocytosis.

In the presence of interleukin-3 and interleukin-5, eosinophil precursors from human umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells were regularly differentiated into mature eosinophil-like cells expressing normal morphology and cyanide-resistant peroxidase. O2- production and [Ca2+]i rise were measured in these in vitro differentiated eosinophils after fMLP stimulation; with dihydrorhodamine-123 and fura-2, respectively. Umbilical cord blood-derived eosinophils responded to fMLP (0.01 nM to 3 microM) with a concentration-dependent production of O2- (EC50 = 63.1 +/- 17.2 nM; Emax = 71.0 +/- 6.2 pmol/min/10(6) cells). O2- production was correlated with an fMLP concentration-dependent increase in [Ca2+]i (EC50 = 32.5 +/- 14.9 nM; Emax = 200.0 +/- 23.9 nM). These results indicate that human umbilical cord blood-derived eosinophils demonstrate functional characteristics similar to adult human peripheral blood eosinophils after activation by fMLP. Therefore, the large numbers of eosinophils (2-3 x 10(6)/ml cord blood) which can be obtained by culture of human cord blood mononuclear cells may serve as a useful model for future studies which will provide insight into the pathogenesis of diseases associated with eosinophils.

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) by itself was not an effective stimulus for inducing superoxide (O2.) generation in human resting or DMSO-differentiated neutrophil-like HL-60 cells. ET-1 (0.01-100 nM) was not able to modulate O2. generation stimulated by the chemotactic peptide N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L-phenylalanine (fMLP, EC50 = 4.24 +/- 1.63 nM in the absence and 3.16 +/- 1.95 nM in the presence of ET-1). Neither did ET-1 (0.01-100 nM) promote the mobilization of intracellular calcium ions or modulate fMLP-induced [Ca(2+)]i increase in this model of human neutrophils. Phosphoramidon, a neutral endopeptidase inhibitor, was not able to reveal any biological (O2.) or biochemical ([Ca(2+)]i response to ET-1 in the absence or in the presence of fMLP in these cells. These results indicate that DMSO-differentiated neutrophil-like HL-60 cells are not sensitive to ET-1 in terms of O2. generation or [Ca(2+)]i variations. [less ▲]

To measure intracellular free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) and superoxide (O2) production in human alveolar macrophages, we used the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator fura-2 and the O2-sensitive dye dihydrorhodamine-123, which becomes fluorescent in its oxidized form, rhodamine-123. We describe a new double-dye technique whereby the kinetics of both [Ca2+]i levels and O2. production can be monitored simultaneously. This technique was developed in the dimethylsulfoxide-differentiated monocytic-like U-937 cell line (not equal to U-937), validated by comparison with single dye measurements and applied to human alveolar macrophages. The chemotactic peptide N-formyl-L-Methionyl-L-Leucyl-L-Phenylalanine induced in both cell types a similar transient elevation in [Ca2+]i, followed within seconds by a sustained increase in O2 production, which was however 4-fold weaker in not equal to U-937 cells. These results indicate that O2 production is an early event following the stimulation of human alveolar macrophages. This new double-dye technique may be relevant to other O2 ion-producing cells and could help to define more precisely the kinetics of the events leading to this biological response. [less ▲]

The results obtained with substituted analogues of BK indicated that: 1) the presence of both Arg residues at position 1 and 9 of kinins was favorable to confer histamine-releasing activity, 2) acetylation of the N-terminal amino acid residue led to a drastic reduction of this activity, 3) addition of a D-Arg residue at the N-terminus reduced their activity, as well as trans-4-hydroxyproline (Hyp) substitutions at position 2 or 3,4) D-Arg0 addition and Hyp3 substitution were synergistic in lowering activity, and 5) D-Phe7 substitution led to enhanced histamine-releasing activity.

The natural polyamines spermine and spermidine, the biosynthetic precursor putrescine and their analogues cadaverine and tyramine stimulate the GTPase activity of purified GTP-binding proteins (Go/Gi) from calf brain reconstituted into phospholipid vesicles. The order of potency was spermine greater than spermidine greater than putrescine = cadaverine greater than tyramine. The physiological relevance of this observation was assessed, showing the same order of potency of polyamines in the stimulation of peritoneal and tracheal rat mast cells. The activation of rat mast cells by polyamines was inhibited by benzalkonium chloride or by a 2 h pretreatment of the cells with pertussis toxin. The increase in inositol phosphates evoked by polyamines was also inhibited by pertussis toxin. Therefore we propose that intracellular polyamines might control the basal level of second messengers and modulate extracellular signals transduced through G-protein-coupled receptors. [less ▲]

K(+)-channel blocker properties have been reported for mast cell-degranulating peptide (MCD) in the central nervous system, but its action mechanism in mast cells remains unknown. We studied the effect of MCD on the membrane potential of rat peritoneal mast cells using the fluorescent probe bis-oxonol. Unexpectedly, MCD induced a decrease in bis-oxonol fluorescence, in a rapid and then a slower phase, suggesting hyperpolarization of mast cells. Other K(+)-channel blockers, tetraethylammonium and 4-aminopyridine, did not significantly modify the bis-oxonol fluorescence and did not alter the effect of MCD. The late phase of bis-oxonol fluorescence decrease was inhibited by ouabain and by potassium deprivation, whereas histamine release was not affected. The first phase of putative hyperpolarization induced by MCD coincided with histamine release and with the generation of inositol polyphosphates. Prior treatment of the cells with pertussis toxin inhibited these effects of MCD. MCD stimulated the GTPase activity of purified G proteins (G0/Gi) in a concentration-dependent manner. These results indicate that the effect of MCD on mast cells is unrelated to K+ channels but that it is relevant to the activation of pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins leading to the activation of phospholipase C. A direct interaction of MCD with G proteins is proposed, which, unlike mastoparan, does not require positive cooperativity. [less ▲]

The molecular mechanism of action of several non-immunological histamine releasers has been investigated using pertussis toxin which interfers, via ADP-ribosylation, with some G-proteins. Pertussis toxin (100 ng/ml) inhibited histamine release induced by compound 48/80, substance P, mastoparan, peptide 401, bradykinin and spermine showing that a G-protein sensitive to pertussis toxin was involved in the non-immunological histamine release. All these compounds directly activate purified G-proteins. The sensitivity to pertussis toxin of this direct stimulatory effect was demonstrated for compound 48/80, mastoparan and substance P. Altogether these results suggest that a direct activation of G-protein might be the molecular mechanism of action of histamine secretagogues acting through a pertussis toxin sensitive G-protein and in this way mimic agonist-ligand receptor interaction.

The naturally occurring polyamines, putrescine, spermidine and spermine, and the analogue cadaverine, induce a dose-dependent histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells. Spermine was the most active among these polycationic metabolites, followed by spermidine and putrescine. The histamine release was inhibited by a 2 h pretreatment of the cells with pertussis toxin (100 ng/ml), demonstrating the involvement of a pertussis toxin-sensitive GTP-binding regulatory protein during the exocytotic process. Experiments performed with purified Go/Gi proteins reconstituted into phospholipid vesicles showed a direct stimulation of GTPase activity by the polyamines. This direct stimulation of G proteins and the consequent activation of the coupled effectors may represent a new mechanism of action for natural polyamines controlling receptor-dependent processes.

The peptide hormones bradykinin and kallidin (Lys-bradykinin), as well as their analogues [des-Arg9]-bradykinin, a selective B1 agonist, [des-Arg9,Leu8]-bradykinin, a selective B1 antagonist, and [Thi5,8,D-Phe7]-bradykinin and D-Arg0-[Hyp3,D-Phe7]-bradykinin, two selective B2 antagonists, induced rapid histamine release from purified rat peritoneal mast cells. In contrast, the N-terminal fragment bradykinin-(1-5) was inactive. These peptides also activate the GTPase activity of GTP-binding proteins (G proteins) (Go/Gi) purified from calf brain, with an order of potency identical to that observed on mast cells, [Thi5,8,D-Phe7]-bradykinin much greater than kallidin greater than bradykinin greater than D-Arg0-[Hyp3,D-Phe7]-bradykinin greater than [des-Arg9]-bradykinin greater than [des-Arg9,Leu8]-bradykinin greater than bradykinin-(1-5). This correlation suggested that G proteins are the targets of kinins in mast cells. Accordingly, the concomitant increase in inositol trisphosphates and release of histamine elicited by kinins were inhibited by pertussis toxin pretreatment of mast cells. The inhibitory effect of benzalkonium chloride showed that the G proteins involved belong to the Gi type. GTPase activity was measured in the supernatant of homogenized mast cells but not in the membranous fraction. This activity was stimulated by kinins and by the venom peptide mastoparan. The potency of peptides was similar to that observed with purified bovine G proteins. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-gel electrophoresis of mast cell supernatant revealed pertussis toxin-induced ADP-ribosylation of two proteins, in the Mr 41,000 and 40,000 range, i.e., similar to purified alpha-subunits of Gi1 and Gi2 or Gi3 subtypes. The data support the proposal that bradykinin and analogues act like mastoparan, substance P, and compound 48/80, interacting first with sialic acid residues of the cell surface and then with Gi-like proteins, inducing phospholipase C activation and intracellular calcium mobilization.

The neuropeptide substance P, the venom peptide mastoparan and the synthetic polyamine compound 48/80 activate rat peritoneal mast cells, leading to rapid histamine release by exocytosis. Although these effects are inhibited by pertussis toxin and involve a transient increase in IP3, no selective membrane receptors have been identified. However, it has recently been shown that these compounds activate G proteins in vitro. Here Yves Landry and colleagues discuss the proposal that direct activation of G protein is the physiological mechanism of action of substance P on rat peritoneal mast cells, this mechanism being mimicked by mastoparan and 48/80, and possibly by other cationic amphiphilic peptides such as kinins. These compounds might be of help in defining the interaction between membrane receptors and G proteins. [less ▲]

Human cutaneous mast cells and their experimental model rat peritoneal mast cells, can be stimulated by an IgE-dependent process or by peptides through the direct activation of G proteins. Both activation pathways lead to the increase of cytosolic Ca2+ level. This increase in dependent of the mobilisation of intracellular calcium stores of the endoplasmic reticulum involving the stimulation of IP3-sensitive calcium channels. Mast cells are characterized by the absence of calcium channels in the plasma membrane. Oxatomide has been synthetized as an analog of cinnarizine. However oxatomide is inactive on current calcium channels. In mast cells, oxatomide inhibits the increase of cytosolic calcium elicited during mast cell activation. Consequently mast cell exocytosis is inhibited altogether with the release of newly synthetized mediators. The authors propose several putative targets for oxatomide in mast cells. The therapeutic effect of oxatomide is also related to its property to antagonize the effects of anaphylactic mediators on their selective receptors. [less ▲]

Bradykinin, kallidin (Lys-bradykinin) and [Thi 5,8, D-Phe7]-bradykinin, a functional B2 antagonist, induce histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells. The histamine release is dependent upon added calcium when mast cells are placed in calcium-free medium 30 min before being triggered with the kinins. Histamine release was dose-dependently inhibited by pertussis toxin (1-100 ng/ml) and by benzalkonium chloride (0.1-3 micrograms/ml). The efficiency of ionophore A23187 on histamine release was affected neither by pertussis toxin nor by benzalkonium chloride. The parallel response of rat peritoneal mast cells to kinins and to substance P suggest that these peptides have the same mechanisms of action i.e. activation of a pertussis toxin-sensitive G protein and of phospholipase C defining a peptidergic triggering pathway of mast cells.

Increasing interest is now devoted to these peptides in different inflammatory diseases, concerning skin, lung and joins. The effect of substance P can be dependent on its C-terminal moiety implicating by this way an interaction with specific neurokinin receptors or can be dependent on its N-terminal moiety which does not involve a specific membrane receptor.

Incubation of rat peritoneal mast cells with substance P resulted in the transient stimulation of phosphoinositol breakdown and histamine secretion through an exocytotic process. These effects were inhibited markedly by a prior 2-hr exposure of the cells to pertussis toxin. Pertussis toxin also inhibited exocytosis induced by substance P, mastoparan and compound 48/80, but did not modify the secretory effect of the ionophore A23187. The transfer of rat peritoneal mast cells from balanced salt solution to calcium-free buffer led to a similar time-dependent decrease in their response to substance P and mastoparan. The concomitant absence of potassium from the calcium-free buffer enabled the mast cells to retain their secretory response. These data demonstrate identical dependency for calcium and monovalent ions of the secretory process elicited by substance P, mastoparan and compound 48/80. Pretreatment of mast cells with neuraminidase decreased the secretagogic effect of substance P, mastoparan and compound 48/80 without modifying the efficiency of the ionophore A23187. Thus, sialic acid residues might be involved in the initial binding of peptides and compound 48/80 to mast cells, which activate a pertussis toxin-sensitive G-protein and allows the increase in phospholipase C activity to induce exocytosis. This sequence of events might characterize the physiological pathway of mast cell activation by peptides, without necessarily requiring selective membrane receptors. [less ▲]
