Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of activation of various second messenger signaling systems on gene expression (ie. mRNA levels) of a peptide hormone processing enzyme called prohormone convertase-1 (PC-1, also called PC-3) in a human pancreatic carcinoid cell line (BON) that expresses several endocrine peptides (chromogranin A, pancreastatin, neurotensin). Pharmacologic activation of adenylate cyclase-cAMP, protein kinase-C and Ca2+ mobilization pathways increased PC-1 mRNA levels and neurotensin secretion. Elevations in PC-1 mRNA levels were dose and time-related. Secretagogue-induced cellular depletion of neurotensin was followed by a replenishment of cellular neurotensin stores and an upregulation of PC-1 mRNA levels. Together, these data indicate that PC-1 mRNA expression is increased with peptide secretion and coordinated with maintenance of cellular stores of peptides.
