The arachidonate-activable, NADPH oxidase- associated H+ channel. Evidence that gp91-phox functions as an essential part of the channel.

The human neutrophil NADPH oxidase-associated H+ channel acts as a charge compensator for the electrogenic generation of superoxide (O2-.). The expression of the channel activity was found to increase in parallel with that of the stimulatable generation of O2-. in differentiated HL60 cells. HL60 cells induced to differentiate in the presence of succinyl acetone (a inhibitor of heme synthesis) were unable to generate O2-., failed to express p22-phox but retained H+ channel activity. EBV transformed B lymphocyte cell lines from normal and CGD patients lacking expression of either p47-phox or p67-phox all expressed unaltered channel activity; however, the activity was completely absent in the lymphocyte cell line lacking gp91-phox. CHO cells and undifferentiated HL60 cells transfected with gp91-phox cDNA expressed H+ channel activity correlating with the expression of gp91-phox. We therefore conclude that the large subunit of the NADPH oxidase cytochrome b (gp91-phox) is the arachidonate activable H+ channel of human neutrophils.[1]
