BACKGROUND
GH3 cells are a well characterized and widely used model used for the in vitro study of growth hormone (GH) secretion. Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) binds to receptors belonging to the family of G protein-coupled receptors, and secrets both GH & prolactin. Phospholipase D (PLD) is an enzyme that hydrolyses phosphatidylcholine to yield phosphatidic acid and choline, and plays important roles in cellular proliferation and hormonal secretion. To elucidate the pathway of the action of TRH in GH3 cells, we investigated the activities of PLC and PLD in GH3 cells treated with TRH or phorbor 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA). METHODS: GH3 cells were labeled with [3H] myristate, followed by incubation of with 0.3% ethanol, prior to before the addition of the agonists. The total lipids were extracted from the harvested cells following treatment with the agonists. The PLD activity was assessed by measuring [3H] phosphatidylethanol from the [3H] phospholipid using thin layer chromatography. RESULTS: TRH (1 muM) stimulated the PLC activity by 44-fold over that of the control values. TRH (1 microM), mastoparan (5 muM), and PMA (500 muM) for 30 minutes increased PLD activity by 1.9, 1.5 and 2.2 fold, respectively, in comparison to the controls. The PLD activities after 15, 30, 60, 120 and 240 min treatments of TRH (1 microM) were 142%, 170%, 172%, 160% and 115%, respectively. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that TRH stimulates not only the PLC activity, but also the PLD activity in GH3 cells.
