Abstract

Objectives: Endothelins, released by vascular endothelial cells, are known growth promoters of various mesenchymal cells that contribute to stromal protein accumulation. Whether endothelins could contribute to myocardial fibrosis depends, in part on whether cardiac fibroblasts have endothelin receptors. The identification and binding characteristics of endothelin-1 and endothelin-3 and their ETA and ETB receptor subtypes in cultured adult rat cardiac fibroblasts represented study objectives. Methods: Cultured rat cardiac fibroblasts (passages 5-10) grown until confluence were used to study radioligand binding assays, receptor subtypes, association and dissociation, effects of agonist and antagonist on binding kinetics, and affinity cross linking. Results: Binding association of 125I-endothelin-l and l25I-endothelin-3 was rapid, specific, and saturable within 60 minutes. The dissociation of receptor bound 125I-endothelin-l was slow and partially reversible (30%-40%), suggesting more than one class of endothelin receptors, whereas the dissociation of 125I-endothelin-3 was time dependent and reversible. Competitive displacement with unlabelled endothelin-1, endothelin-3, endothelin-receptor non-selective sarafotoxin (S6b), and ETA receptor selective antagonist PED-3512-PI were used to identify receptor subtypes. Displacement of l25I-endothelin-l by cold endothelin-1, resulted in a low affinity, high binding site (IC50 5.4 × 10-9 M; 3.6 × 104 binding sites·cell-1) and a high affinity, low binding site (IC50 4.2 × 10-4 M; 11 830 binding sites·cell-1). With 125I-endothelin-l the IC50 s for sarafotoxin, endothelin-3, and PED-3512-PI were 1.8 × 10-10, 1.7 × 10-9, and 3.7 × 10-9 M, respectively; for 125I-endothelin-3 these IC50s were 2.28 × 10-11, 1.9 × 10-10, and 1.7 × 10-9 M, respectively. Endothelin receptor subunits of 53, 37, 34, and 24 kDa were identified by affinity cross linking. Conclusion: Endothelin-1 and endothelin-3 binding and ETA and ETB receptor subtypes are present in cardiac fibroblasts with ETB predominant. The presence of these receptors support the hypothesis that endothelins may regulate cardiac fibroblast function.Cardiovascular Research 1993;27:21-25-2129.
