About the Book

Altered 1-oleoyl-lysophosphatidic acid (LPA, 100 muM)-stimulated calcium responses occur in B-lymphoblast cell lines from bipolar disorder patients, but the mechanism(s) involved is uncertain. LPA shares a structurally similar fatty acid side chain with the diacylglycerol analogue, 1-oleoyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycerol (OAG), a known activator of subtypes 3, 6 and 7 of the canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) cation channel subfamily. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to determine whether the LPA-stimulated calcium response in B-lymphoblasts is mediated, in part, through this TRPC channel subfamily. Divalent cation selectivity in response to thapsigargin, LPA and OAG was used to distinguish TRPC-like character from store-operated channels. The results suggest that 100 muM LPA stimulates calcium entry through channels with characteristics similar to TRPC3/6/7. The findings of enhanced LPA-stimulated calcium responses from bipolar disorder compared with healthy subjects may implicate dysfunction of TRPC3-like calcium entry in the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder.
