Abstract

Incubation of particulate fractions of swine granulosa cells or luteal minces with purified pertussis toxin (islet-activitating protein) and [32P]-NAD catalyzed the (32P)-ADP ribosylation of a 41,000 dalton membrane protein. ADP-ribosylation was markedly reduced by prior incubation of intact cells with toxin. The functional relevance of this presumptive inhibitory guanine nucleotide-binding protein in pig granulosa cells was indicated by the ability of prior treatment with pertussis toxin to increase cyclic AMP generation and progesterone production significantly in response to follicle stimulating hormone. Prior cellular intoxication also enhanced cyclic AMP production stimulated by luteinizing hormone and choleratoxin, but not basally or after forskolin. these results demonstrate the presence of an inhibitory guanine nucleotide-binding protein in both the follicular (granulosa cell) and luteal compartments of the mammalian ovary, and indicate its functional relevance in cyclic AMP generation and progesterone secretion.
