Cyclic AMP-dependent regulation of the number of [3H]batrachotoxinin benzoate binding sites on rat cardiac myocytes.

Abstract : We sought to assess the effect of an increase in cAMP on sodium channels on adult rat cardiac ventricular myocytes. Sodium channels were studied with the use of the radiolabeled sodium channel-specific toxin [3H] batrachotoxinin benzoate ([3H]BTXB). Forskolin, isoproterenol, prostaglandin E1, cholera toxin, and pertussis toxin each increased cAMP levels and decreased the number of [3H]BTXB binding sites without changing the affinity of [3H]BTXB for the sodium channel. The cAMP analog 8-bromo-cyclic AMP (8-Br-cAMP) reduced the number of [3H]BTXB binding sites from 19 fmol/10(5) cells to 11 fmol/10(5) cells. [3H]BTXB binding site down-regulation was reversible, cAMP dose-dependent, and time-dependent. To test the hypothesis that the cAMP effect was mediated by cAMP-dependent phosphorylation, we determined the effect of 8-Br-cAMP on [3H]BTXB binding after preincubation of myocytes with N-(2-(methylamino)ethyl)-5-isoquinolinesulfonamide dihydrochloride (H8), a protein kinase A inhibitor. H8 inhibited 70% of the decrease in the number of [3H]BTXB binding sites induced by 8-Br-cAMP. Thus increases in intracellular cAMP in cardiac myocytes reversibly induced a decrease in the number of [3H]BTXB binding sites via cAMP-dependent protein phosphorylation, possibly of the sodium channel.
