Extracellular 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway in proximal tubular, thick ascending limb, and collecting duct epithelial cells.

In a previous study, we demonstrated that human proximal tubular epithelial cells obtained from a commercial source metabolized extracellular 2',3'-cAMP to 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP and extracellular 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP to adenosine (the extracellular 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway; extracellular 2',3'-cAMP → 2'-AMP + 3'-AMP → adenosine). The purpose of this study was to investigate the metabolism of extracellular 2',3'-cAMP in proximal tubular vs. thick ascending limb vs. collecting duct epithelial cells freshly isolated from their corresponding nephron segments obtained from rat kidneys. In epithelial cells from all three nephron segments, 1) extracellular 2',3'-cAMP was metabolized to 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP, with 2'-AMP > 3'-AMP, 2) the metabolism of extracellular 2',3'-cAMP to 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP was not inhibited by either 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine (phosphodiesterase inhibitor) or 1,3-dipropyl-8-p-sulfophenylxanthine (ecto-phosphodiesterase inhibitor), 3) extracellular 2',3'-cAMP increased extracellular adenosine levels, 4) 3'-AMP and 2'-AMP were metabolized to adenosine with an efficiency similar to that of 5'-AMP, and 5) the metabolism of 5'-AMP, 3'-AMP, and 2'-AMP was not inhibited by α,β-methylene-adenosine-5'-diphosphate (CD73 inhibitor). These results support the conclusion that renal epithelial cells all along the nephron can metabolize extracellular 2',3'-cAMP to 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP and can efficiently metabolize extracellular 2'-AMP and 3'-AMP to adenosine and that the metabolic enzymes involved are not the classical phosphodiesterases nor ecto-5'-nucleotidase (CD73). Because 2',3'-cAMP is released by injury and because previous studies demonstrate that the extracellular 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway stimulates epithelial cell proliferation via adenosine A(2B) receptors, the present results suggest that the extracellular 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway may help restore epithelial cells along the nephron following kidney injury.

Expression of the 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway in astrocytes and microglia.

Many organs express the extracellular 3',5'-cAMP-adenosine pathway (conversion of extracellular 3',5'-cAMP to 5'-AMP and 5'-AMP to adenosine). Some organs release 2',3'-cAMP (isomer of 3',5'-cAMP) and convert extracellular 2',3'-cAMP to 2'- and 3'-AMP and convert these AMPs to adenosine (extracellular 2',3'-cAMP-adenosine pathway). As astrocytes and microglia are important participants in the response to brain injury and adenosine is an endogenous neuroprotectant, we investigated whether these extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathways exist in these cell types. 2',3'-, 3',5'-cAMP, 5'-, 3'-, and 2'-AMP were incubated with mouse primary astrocytes or primary microglia for 1 h and purine metabolites were measured in the medium by mass spectrometry. There was little evidence of a 3',5'-cAMP-adenosine pathway in either astrocytes or microglia. In contrast, both cell types converted 2',3'-cAMP to 2'- and 3'-AMP (with 2'-AMP being the predominant product). Although both cell types converted 2'- and 3'-AMP to adenosine, microglia were five- and sevenfold, respectively, more efficient than astrocytes in this regard. Inhibitor studies indicated that the conversion of 2',3'-cAMP to 2'-AMP was mediated by a different ecto-enzyme than that involved in the metabolism of 2',3'-cAMP to 3'-AMP and that although CD73 mediates the conversion of 5'-AMP to adenosine, an alternative ecto-enzyme metabolizes 2'- or 3'-AMP to adenosine.

Role of superoxide and hydrogen peroxide in hypertension induced by an antagonist of adenosine receptors.

Treatment of Wistar rats for 7 days with 1,3-dipropyl-8-sulfophenylxanthine (DPSPX), an antagonist of adenosine receptors, induces long-lasting hypertension associated with marked changes in vascular structure and reactivity and renin-angiotensin system activation. This study aimed at evaluating the role of oxidative stress in the development of DPSPX-induced hypertension and also at identifying the relative contribution of superoxide radical (O2.-) vs hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Vascular and systemic prooxidant/antioxidant status was evaluated in sham (saline, i.p., 7 days) and DPSPX (90 microg/kg/h, i.p., 7 days)-treated rats. Systolic blood pressure was determined by invasive and non-invasive methods. The activity of vascular NADPH oxidase, superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and glutathione peroxidase was assayed by fluorometric/spectrophotometric methods. H2O2 levels were measured using an Amplex Red Hydrogen Peroxide kit. Plasma thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and plasma antioxidant capacity were also measured. In addition we tested the effects of antioxidants or inhibitors of reactive oxygen species generation on blood pressure, vascular hyperplasia and oxidative stress parameters. DPSPX-hypertensive rats showed increased activity of vascular NADPH oxidase, SOD, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, as well as increased H2O2 generation. DPSPX-hypertensive rats also had increased plasma lipid peroxidation and decreased plasma antioxidant capacity. Treatment with apocynin (1.5 mmol/l, per os, 14 days), or with polyethylene glycol (PEG)-catalase (10,000 U/kg/day, i.p., 8 days), prevented the DPSPX-induced effects on blood pressure, vascular structure and H2O2 levels. Tempol (3 mmol/l, per os, 14 days) failed to inhibit these changes, unless PEG-catalase was co-administered. It is concluded that O2.- generation with subsequent formation of H2O2 plays a major role in the development of DPSPX-induced hypertension.

Developmental changes of purinergic control of intestinal motor activity during metamorphosis in the African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis.

Little is known about the purinergic regulation of intestinal motor activity in amphibians. Purinergic control of intestinal motility is subject to changes during development in mammals. The aim of this study was to investigate purinergic control of intestinal smooth muscle in the amphibian Xenopus laevis and explore possible changes in this system during the developmental phase of metamorphosis. Effects of purinergic compounds on mean force and contraction frequency in intestinal circular muscle strips from prometamorphic, metamorphic, and juvenile animals were investigated. Before metamorphosis, low concentrations of ATP reduced motor activity, whereas the effects were reversed at higher concentrations. ATP-induced relaxation was not inhibited by the P2-receptor antagonist pyridoxalphosphate-6-azophenyl-2',4'-disulfonic acid (PPADS) but was blocked by the ecto-nucleotidase inhibitor 6-N,N-diethyl-d-beta,gamma-dibromomethylene ATP (ARL67256), indicating that an ATP-derived metabolite mediated the relaxation response at this stage. Adenosine induced relaxation before, during, and after metamorphosis, which was blocked by the A(1)-receptor antagonist 1,3-dipropyl-8-cyclopentylxanthine (DPCPX). The stable ATP-analog adenosine 5'-[gamma-thio]-triphosphate (ATPgammaS) and 2-methylthioATP (2-MeSATP) elicited contractions in the circular muscle strips in prometamorphic tadpoles. However, in juvenile froglets, 2-MeSATP caused relaxation, as did ATPgammaS at low concentrations. The P2Y(11)/P2X(1)-receptor antagonist NF157 antagonized the ATPgammaS-induced relaxation. The P2X-preferring agonist alpha-beta-methyleneadenosine 5'-triphosphate (alpha-beta-MeATP) evoked PPADS-sensitive increases in mean force at all stages investigated. This study demonstrates the existence of an adenosine A(1)-like receptor mediating relaxation and a P2X-like receptor mediating contraction in the X. laevis gut before, during, and after metamorphosis. Furthermore, the development of a P2Y(11)-like receptor-mediated relaxation during metamorphosis is shown.

Xanthine oxidase inhibition by 1,3-dipropyl-8-sulfophenylxanthine (DPSPX), an antagonist of adenosine receptors.

Xanthine oxidase (XO), an enzyme involved in purine metabolism, is a source of either oxidants (superoxide radical) or antioxidants (uric acid). Interference with XO activity can lead to oxidative stress, thus contributing to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. The adenosine receptors antagonist, 1,3-dipropyl-8-sulfophenylxanthine (DPSPX), induces hypertension and cardiovascular injury in rats. Since DPSPX is a xanthine, we aimed at evaluating DPSPX's influence on XO activity to ascertain its contribution to DPSPX-induced hypertension. The activity of isolated XO in the presence of DPSPX was evaluated spectrophotometrically. Serum and urinary uric acid levels of DPSPX-treated rats were measured using a commercial kit. DPSPX inhibited XO activity in a concentration-dependent manner and reduced rat serum and urinary uric acid levels. It can be concluded that: DPSPX is an inhibitor of XO; decreased generation of uric acid may lead to oxidative stress, thus contributing to endothelial dysfunction and vascular morphological changes in DPSPX-treated rats.

Adenosine biosynthesis in the collecting duct.

Adenosine regulates tubular transport in collecting ducts (CDs); however, the sources of adenosine that modulate ion transport in CDs are unknown. The extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathway refers to the conversion of cAMP to AMP by ectophosphodiesterase, followed by metabolism of AMP to adenosine by ecto-5'-nucleotidase, with all steps occurring in the extracellular compartment. The goal of this study was to assess whether the extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathway exists in CDs. Studies were conducted in both freshly isolated CDs and in CD cells in culture (first passage) that were derived from isolated CDs. Purity of CDs was confirmed by microscopy, by Western blotting for aquaporin-1, aquaporin-2, bumetanide-sensitive cotransporter type 1, and thiazide-sensitive cotransporter; and by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction for adenosine receptors. Both freshly isolated CDs and CD cells in culture converted exogenous cAMP to AMP and adenosine. In both freshly isolated CDs and CD cells in culture, conversion of cAMP to AMP and adenosine was affected by a broad-spectrum phosphodiesterase inhibitor (3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine), an ectophosphodiesterase inhibitor (1,3-dipropyl-8-p-sulfophenylxanthine), and a blocker of ecto-5'-nucleotidase (alpha,beta-methylene-adenosine-5'-diphosphate) in a manner consistent with exogenous cAMP being processed by the extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathway. In CD cells in culture, stimulation of adenylyl cyclase increased extracellular concentrations of cAMP, AMP, and adenosine, and these changes were also modulated by the aforementioned inhibitors in a manner consistent with the extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathway. In conclusion, the extracellular cAMP-adenosine pathway is an important source of adenosine in CDs.

Losartan and atenolol on hypertension induced by adenosine receptor blockade.

1. The prolonged infusion of 1,3-dipropyl-8-sulfophenylxanthine (DPSPX), a non-selective antagonist of adenosine receptors, induces hypertension, an increase in plasma renin activity and morphological cardiovascular changes. 2. The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of losartan, a selective AT1 receptor antagonist, and atenolol, a beta-adrenoceptor antagonist, on DPSPX-induced hypertension. 3. Male Wistar rats (250-300 g, n = 4-6) were treated for 1 or 4 weeks with: saline i.p.; DPSPX (90 microg kg(-1) h(-1)) i.p.; losartan (15 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) p.o.; atenolol (25 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) p.o.; DPSPX (90 microg kg(-1) h(-1)) i.p. + losartan (15 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) p.o.; DPSPX (90 microg kg(-1) h(-1)) i.p. + atenolol (25 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) p.o. Blood pressure was measured by the 'tail-cuff' method in conscious animals. Fragments of the mesenteric and tail arteries were processed for morphological study and the mean diameter of the vascular smooth muscle cells was determined. 4. DPSPX increased blood pressure. Losartan and atenolol prevented this rise but had no effect on blood pressure of control rats. DPSPX-treated groups showed hypertrophy of the vascular smooth muscle cells and proliferation of subintimal cells. Losartan but not atenolol prevented these changes. Losartan had no effect on the vascular morphology of control rats, while treatment with atenolol for 4 weeks induced hypertrophy of the vascular smooth muscle cells. 5. Both losartan and atenolol counteract the development of DPSPX-induced hypertension but only losartan prevents the alterations in vascular morphology.

Interaction of carbon monoxide and adenosine in the nucleus tractus solitarii of rats.

Carbon monoxide has been identified as an endogenous biological messenger in the brain. Heme oxygenase catalyzes the metabolism of heme to carbon monoxide and biliverdin. Previously, we have shown the involvement of carbon monoxide in central cardiovascular regulation, baroreflex modulation, and glutamatergic neurotransmission in the nucleus tractus solitarii of rats. We also showed that adenosine increased the release of glutamate in the nucleus tractus solitarii. In this study, we investigated the possible interactions of carbon monoxide and adenosine in the nucleus tractus solitarii. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were anesthetized with urethane, and blood pressure were monitored intra-arterially. Unilateral microinjection of increasing doses of hemin (0.01 to 3.3 nmol), a heme molecule cleaved by heme oxygenase to yield carbon monoxide, produced a significant decrease in blood pressure and heart rate in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, similar cardiovascular effects were observed after injection of adenosine (2.3 nmol). These cardiovascular effects of hemin were attenuated by prior administration of the adenosine receptor antagonist 1,3-dipropyl-8-sulfophenylxanthine. Similarly, pretreatment of the heme oxygenase inhibitor zinc protoporphyrin IX or zinc deuteroporphyrin 2,4-bis glycol also attenuated the depressor and bradycardic effects of adenosine. These results indicate that the interaction between carbon monoxide and adenosine may contribute to the activation of heme oxygenase in central cardiovascular regulation.

Hypertension due to blockade of adenosine receptors.

Chronic treatment of rats with 90 microg/kg/day DPSPX (1,3-dipropyl-8-sulphophenylxanthine) during seven days leads to a hypertensive state which is characterized by marked morphological changes of the blood vessel walls as well as by important functional alterations. While the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor captopril and the antagonist of angiotensin II AT 1 receptors losartan prevent the development of both hypertension and morphological changes, the selective beta1-adrenoceptor antagonist atenolol could prevent only the increase in blood pressure. It is concluded that at least two factors are involved in the development of the hypertensive state.

Adenosine participates in regulation of smooth muscle relaxation in aortas from rats with experimental hypothyroidism.

The contribution of adenosine receptors was evaluated in vascular relaxation in experimental hypothyroidism. Hypothyroid aortic rings contracted less than normal controls with noradrenaline, phenylephrine, and KCl; the difference was maintained after incubation with 1,3-dipropyl-8-p-sulfophenylxanthine (an A1 and A2 adenosine receptor blocker). The vascular relaxation induced by acetylcholine or carbachol was similar in normal and hypothyroid aortic rings. However, adenosine, N6-cyclopentyladenosine (an A1 adenosine receptor analogue), and 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (an A2 and A3 adenosine analogue) induced vasodilation that was larger in hypothyroid than in normal aortas. Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester shifted the dose-response curves of adenosine, N6-cyclopentyladenosine, or 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine to the right in both normal and hypothyroid vessels. The blocker 1,3-dipropyl-8-p-sulfophenylxanthine significantly reduced adenosine-induced relaxation in the hypothyroid but not in the normal aortic vessels. These results suggest that in hypothyroid aortas, a larger adenosine-mediated vasodilation is observed probably due to an increase in receptor number or sensitivity.
