Abstract
ATP is released as a cotransmitter together with catecholamines from sympathetic nerves. In the heart ATP has been shown to cause a pronounced positive inotropic effect and may also act in synergy with β-adrenergic agonists to augment cardiomyocyte contractility. The aim of the present study was to investigate the inotropic effects mediated by purinergic P2 receptors using isolated mouse cardiomyocytes.



Stable adenine nucleotide analogs were used and the agonist rank order for adenine nucleotide stimulation of the mouse cardiomyocytes was AR-C67085 > ATPγS > 2-MeSATP >>> 2-MeSADP = 0, that fits the agonist profile of the P2Y11 receptor. ATPγS induced a positive inotropic response in single mouse... (More)
ATP is released as a cotransmitter together with catecholamines from sympathetic nerves. In the heart ATP has been shown to cause a pronounced positive inotropic effect and may also act in synergy with β-adrenergic agonists to augment cardiomyocyte contractility. The aim of the present study was to investigate the inotropic effects mediated by purinergic P2 receptors using isolated mouse cardiomyocytes.



Stable adenine nucleotide analogs were used and the agonist rank order for adenine nucleotide stimulation of the mouse cardiomyocytes was AR-C67085 > ATPγS > 2-MeSATP >>> 2-MeSADP = 0, that fits the agonist profile of the P2Y11 receptor. ATPγS induced a positive inotropic response in single mouse cardiomyocytes. The response was similar to that for the β1 receptor agonist isoproterenol. The most potent response was obtained using AR-C67085, a P2Y11 receptor agonist. This agonist also potentiated contractions in isolated trabecular preparations. The adenylyl cyclase blocker (SQ22563) and phospholipase C (PLC) blocker (U73122) demonstrated that both pathways were required for the inotropic response of AR-C67085. A cAMP enzyme immunoassay confirmed that AR-C67085 increased cAMP in the cardiomyocytes. These findings are in agreement with the P2Y11 receptor, coupled both to activation of IP3 and cAMP, being a major receptor for ATP induced inotropy. Analyzing cardiomyocytes from desmin deficient mice, Des–/–, with a congenital cardiomyopathy, we found a lower sensitivity to AR-C67085, suggesting a down-regulation of P2Y11 receptor function in heart failure.



The prominent action of the P2Y11 receptor in controling cardiomyocyte contractility and possible alterations in its function during cardiomyopathy may suggest this receptor as a potential therapeutic target. It is possible that agonists for the P2Y11 receptor could be used to improve cardiac output in patients with circulatory shock and that P2Y11 receptor antagonist could be beneficial in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF).
