We have previously demonstrated that exogenous H2O2 stimulates Cl(-)/HCO3(-) exchanger activity in immortalized renal proximal tubular epithelial (PTE) cells from both the Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rat and the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR), this effect being more pronounced in SHR cells. The aim of the present study was to examine the mechanism of H2O2-induced stimulation of Cl(-)/HCO3(-) exchanger activity in WKY and SHR cells. It is now reported that the SHR PTE cells were endowed with an enhanced capacity to produce H2O2, comparatively with WKY cells and this was accompanied by a decreased expression of SOD2, SOD3, and catalase in SHR PTE cells. The stimulatory effect of H2O2 on the exchanger activity was blocked by SP600125 (JNK inhibitor), but not by U0126 (MEK1/2 inhibitor) or SB203580 (p38 inhibitor) in both cell lines. Basal JNK1 and JNK2 protein expression was higher in SHR PTE cells than in WKY PTE cells. H2O2 had no effect on p-JNK1/2 in WKY PTE cells over time. By contrast, H2O2 treatment resulted in a rapid and sustained increase in JNK1/2 phosphorylation in SHR PTE cells, which was completely abolished by apocynin. Treatment of SHR PTE cells with apocynin significantly decreased the H2O2-induced stimulation of Cl(-)/HCO3(-) exchanger activity. It is concluded that H2O2-induced stimulation of Cl(-)/HCO3(-) exchanger activity is regulated by JNK1/2, particularly by JNK2, in SHR PTE cells. The imbalance between oxidant and antioxidant mechanisms in SHR PTE cells enhances the response of JNK1/2 to H2O2, which contributes to their increased sensitivity to H2O2.
