Abstract

Abstract Murine neuroblastoma cells (clone N1E‐115) possess neurotensin receptors that mediate cyclic GMP synthesis. Because of the hypothesized relationship between phospholipid metabolism, intracellular Ca2+, and cyclic GMP synthesis, we determined with these cells the effects of neurotensin on 32P labeling of phospholipids, release of inositol phosphates, and intracellular Ca2+ (as determined with the use of Quin‐2, a fluorescent probe sensitive to free Ca2+ levels). Neurotensin stimulated incorporation of 32P into phospholipids, especially phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidate. Neurotensin also stimulated the release of [3H]‐inositol phosphates with an EC50 of about 1 nM. Mean basal Ca2+ concentration in these cells was 134 nM and this level was increased in a rapid and dose‐dependent manner by neurotensin, with an EC50 of 4 nM. Since the EC50 for neurotensin in stimulating cyclic GMP synthesis is 1.5 nM and the KD for binding of [3H]neurotensin at 0° is 11 nM, all these different effects appear to be shared proximal consequences of neurotensin receptor activation.
