Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate that PB28 abolishes the Ca2+ release through the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3) receptors and ryanodine receptors in SK-N-SH cells. Sigma receptors are divided into the subtypes sigma-1 and sigma-2, which are expressed in tumor cell lines and characterized by distinct pharmacological profiles. The sigma-1 receptor has been recently cloned, whereas the sigma-2 receptor is less well characterized. The endogenous ligand(s) of both subtypes remain unclear. In isolated guinea pig ileum, PB28 inhibits the contraction induced by carbachol dose dependently and in a non-competitive manner. In SK-N-SH cells PB28 challenge does not affect the intracellular Ca2+ concentration but incubation with PB28 for 45 min abolishes the cytosolic Ca2+ increases evoked by carbachol or histamine. This effect, not sensitive to cycloheximide, is caused by direct inhibition of the InsP3 receptors, since PB28 abolishes the response elicited by InsP3 administration in permeabilized SK-N-SH cells. Finally, incubation for 45 min with PB28 also abolishes the cytosolic Ca2+ increase evoked by caffeine. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
