Abstract
Lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC), which exists abundantly in lipid fraction of oxidized low density lipoprotein, has been implicated in enhanced agonist-induced contraction and increase of intracellular Ca2+. The effect of LPC on the activity of delayed rectifier K+ current (IdK), which is a major determinant of membrane potential and vascular tone under resting condition, was examined in rabbit coronary smooth muscle cells using whole cell patch clamping technique. Application of LPC to the bath solution caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of IdK, and the concentration to produce half-maximal inhibition was 1.51 μM. This effect of LPC on IdK was readily reversed after washout of LPC in the bath. The steady-state voltage dependence of IdK was shifted to positive direction by both extra- and intracellular application of LPC. Staurosporine (100 nM) pretreatment significantly suppressed the LPC-induced inhibition of IdK. These results suggest that LPC inhibits IdK in rabbit coronary smooth muscle cells by a pathway that involves protein kinase C, and the LPC-induced inhibition of IdK may be, at least in part, responsible for the abnormal vascular reactivity in atherosclerotic coronary artery.
