The effect of phorbol esters on the transport of amino acids has been evaluated in cultured human fibroblasts. The activity of the Na(+)-dependent system XAG- for anionic amino acids is selectively and markedly stimulated by phorbol esters.

Prolonged incubations in the presence of 1 microM phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate lower the binding of the ligand to its receptor with a loss of the stimulatory effect on transport.

Abstract

The effect of phorbol esters on the transport of amino acids has been evaluated in cultured human fibroblasts. The activity of the Na(+)-dependent system XAG- for anionic amino acids is selectively and markedly stimulated by phorbol esters. The effect is maximal within 15 min; it is attributable to an increase in transport maximum (Vmax) and not prevented by inhibitors of protein synthesis. The half-maximal stimulation is observed at concentrations of phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate lower than 100 nM. Prolonged incubations in the presence of 1 microM phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate lower the binding of the ligand to its receptor with a loss of the stimulatory effect on transport. The results presented indicate that the stimulation of amino acid transport through system XAG- by phorbol esters requires the activation of protein kinase C.
