Interactions between endothelin-1 (ET)-induced phosphoinositide (PI) hydrolysis and agents that increase Ca2+ influx (i.e. A23187 and ionomycin) or induce depolarization (i.e. KCl) were investigated using C6 glioma. A23187 dose-dependently potentiated ET (30 nM)- and ATP (100 microM)-induced [3H]inositol phosphate (IP) accumulation. This potentiation was associated with an increase in the maximal stimulation elicited by both ET and ATP but their EC50 values were unchanged. This effect of A23187 occurred at concentrations that did not affect basal PI turnover; i.e. 10 nM-3 microM. Ionomycin within the range of 1 nM-1 microM also significantly enhanced ET-induced PI breakdown and this effect was associated with an increase of [Ca2+]i. KCl in a concentration-dependent manner (14.7-54.7 mM) markedly inhibited PI breakdown elicited by ET and ATP, but had much less inhibition on basal activity and no effect on A23187- and ionomycin-induced responses. In parallel, KCl added before or after ET, sharply attenuated the increase of ET-induced [Ca2+]i but did not affect basal level or ionomycin-induced [Ca2+]i response. Neither the potentiation by A23187 nor the inhibition by KCl of ET-induced PI turnover was observed in cultured cerebellar astrocytes. Our results suggest that the cell type-specific regulation by Ca2+ ionophores and KCl on ET-induced PI metabolism is closely related to perturbation of [Ca2+]i.
