Abstract

The effects of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) on the handling of Ca2+ and insulin release were investigated in the clonal insulin-producing cell line RINm5F. The presence of the phorbol ester lowered the free cytoplasmic Ca2+ and suppressed the increase obtained by depolarization with high concentrations of K+. Despite the lowering in cytoplasmic Ca2+ by TPA, there was a concomitant stimulation of insulin release indicating that one feature of protein kinase C activation is to make the secretory system more sensitive to Ca2+. Furthermore, there was no interaction of TPA with the mechanisms responsible for inositol 1,4,5-tris(phosphate) induced Ca2+ release or Ca2+ uptake in permeabilized cells. Although TPA slightly depolarized the RINm5F cells there was no interference with K+-induced depolarization. It is suggested that an additional effect of protein kinase C activation in these cells, is to stimulate the extrusion of Ca2+ over the plasma membrane.
