Abstract:Arachidonic acid and its 15-lipoxygenase metabolite (15S)-hydroxy-(5Z,8Z,11Z,13E)-eicosatetraenoic acid ((15S)-HETE) modulates the beta-adrenergic response of cultured rat neonatal cardiomyocytes as indicated by an increase in the beating rate following stimulation of the cells with suboptimal isoproterenol concentrations. The effect of 15-HETE was enantioselective for the S-isomer and could be detected at concentrations as low as 10(-12) M. (11S)-HETE and (5S,15S)-dihydroxy-(6E,8Z,11Z,13E)-eicosatetraen oic acid did also exhibit this effect, whereas other mono-, di-, and trihydroxyeicosanoids as well as the 15-lipoxygenase products of 11,14-eicosadienoic acid, of two eicosatrienoic acid isomers and of 5,8,11,14,17-eicosapentaenoic acid were ineffective. Immunohistochemical studies indicated the expression of a 15-lipoxygenase in cardiomyocytes and in resident heart mast cells. Induction of the beta-adrenergic supersensitivity is paralleled by a selective incorporation of (15S)-HETE into the cellular phosphatidylinositol pool. In contrast, (12S)-HETE, which did not induce beta-adrenergic supersensitivity, was incorporated preferentially into phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine. Calphostin C, an inhibitor of protein kinase C, blocked both the induction of supersensitivity by (15S)-HETE and its incorporation into phosphatidylinositol. These data suggest that in cardiomyocytes 15-lipoxygenase metabolites specifically induces a signal transduction cascade leading to a supersensitivity of the cells toward beta-adrenergic agonists, which involves the phosphatidylinositol cycle and a protein kinase C.
