Effect of inhibitors of eicosanoid metabolism on release of [3H]noradrenaline from the human neuroblastoma, SH-SY5Y.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA; a lipoxygenase inhibitor), LY-270766 (an inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase), and the diacylglycerol lipase inhibitor RG 80267 completely eliminated potassium-evoked release of [3H]-noradrenaline ([3H]NA) from the human neuroblastoma clone SH-SY5Y with IC50 values of 10, 15, and 30 microM, respectively. In contrast, these inhibitors only partially inhibited carbachol-evoked release and had little effect on the calcium ionophore A23187-evoked release of NA in this cell line. Arachidonic acid partially inhibited potassium- and A23187-evoked release but did not reverse the inhibition of potassium-evoked release observed in the presence of RG 80267. These studies suggest that arachidonic acid (or its lipoxygenase products) are not important intermediates in the regulation of exocytosis in SH-SY5Y. This conclusion is strengthened by our studies in which SH-SY5Y cells were grown in medium supplemented with bovine serum albumin-linoleic acid (50 microM). Under these conditions there was a selective increase in content of membrane polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega 6 series, including arachidonic acid; however, these changes did not effect potassium-, veratridine-, carbachol-, or calcium ionophore-evoked release of [3H]NA.[1]
