Abstract

We studied actin cytoskeletal remodeling and the role of leukotrienes and tyrosine phosphorylation in the response of endothelial cells to different types of cyclic mechanical stretching. Human aortic endothelial cells were grown on deformable silicone membranes subjected to either cyclic one- directional (strip) stretching (10%, 0.5 Hz), or biaxial stretching. After 1 min of either type of stretching, actin cytoskeletons of the stretched cells were already disrupted. After stretching for 10 and 30 min, the percentage of the stretched cells that had disrupted actin cytoskeletons were significantly increased, compared with control cells without stretching. Also, at these two time points, biaxial stretching consistently produced higher frequencies of actin cytoskeleton disruption. At 3 h, strip stretching caused the formation of stress fiber bundles, which were oriented nearly perpendicular to the stretching direction. With biaxial stretching, however, actin cytoskeletons in many stretched cells were remodeled into three- dimensional actin structures protruding outside the substrate plane, within which cYCliC stretching was applied. In both stretching conditions, actin filaments were formed in the direction without substrate deformation. Moreover, substantially inhibiting either leukotriene production with nordihydroguaiaretic acid or tyrosine phosphorylation with tyrphostin A25 did not block the actin cytoskeletal remodeling. However, inhibiting both leukotriene production and tyrosine phosphorylation completely blocked the actin cytoskeletal remodeling. Thus, the study showed that the remodeling of actin cytoskeletons of the stretched endothelial cells include rapid disruption first and then re-formation. The resulting pattern of the actin cytoskeleton after remodeling depends on the type of cyclic stretching applied, but under either type of cyclic stretching, the actin filaments are formed in the direction without substrate deformation. Finally, leukotrienes and tyrosine phosphorylation are necessary for actin cytoskeletal remodeling of the endothelial cells in response to mechanical stretching. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
