Abstract

Following the differentiation of 3T3-L1 fibroblasts by insulin/dexamethasone/methylisobutylxanthine, marked increases in cAMP levels by isoproterenol but not forskolin and in 2-deoxyglucose uptake by insulin occurred. Pertussis toxin-pretreatment prior to addition of insulin/dexamethasone/methylisobutylxanthine and exposure of cells to pertussis toxin during differentiation attenuated glycerophosphate dehydrogenase activity as a differentiation marker enzyme and the responses to isoproterenol and insulin by approximately 50% of those in pertussis toxin-untreated cells. On the other hand, insulin/dexamethasone/methylisobutylxanthine caused induction of c-fos proto-oncogene in confluent 3T3-L1 fibroblasts. This induction was also reduced in pertussis toxin-pretreated cells. These results suggested that pertussis toxin-sensitive GTP-binding protein(s) is involved in expression of c-fos mRNA accompanied by differentiation. In addition, accumulation of c-fos mRNA by insulin/dexamethasone/methylisobutylxanthine was enhanced in protein kinase C-depleted cells pretreated with phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate, indicating that protein kinase C may negatively regulate c-fos expression induced by insulin/dexamethasone/methylisobutylxanthine.
