We have previously demonstrated that rat liver nuclei contain PI-PLC beta1 and gamma1 in the inner nuclear matrix and lamina associated with specific phosphodiesterase activity (Bertagnolo et al., 1995, Cell Signall. 7, 669-678).

Three PI-PLC isoforms (beta1, gamma1, delta1) were examined in control and regenerating liver cells by using specific antibodies. By means of in situ immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy, PI-PLC beta1 was found mainly in the nucleoplasm and this pattern was not modified after hepatectomy.

However, analyses of isolated nuclei identified changes in the nucleus associated PI-PLC gamma1 that paralleled the in situ observation whereas the beta1 isoform was unmodified at all the times examined. Nuclear phosphodiesterase activity on PIP2 was lower at 3 and 16 h, in comparison with sham operated rats, increased at 6 h and reached the highest value after 22 h. Consistently, the recovery of PIP2, obtained in conditions that optimise PIP-kinase activity, showed a marked decrease at 3 h and an increase up to 16 h of liver regeneration, followed by a further decrease at 22 h. These data are consistent with a close relationship between cell proliferation and the nuclear inositide cycle, depending, in rat liver, predominantly on the modulation of the gamma1 isoform of PI-PLC.

Abstract

We have previously demonstrated that rat liver nuclei contain PI-PLC beta1 and gamma1 in the inner nuclear matrix and lamina associated with specific phosphodiesterase activity (Bertagnolo et al., 1995, Cell Signall. 7, 669-678). Since compensatory hepatic growth is an informative and well characterized model for natural cell proliferation, the presence of specific PI-PLC isoforms and their activity as well as PIP2 recovery were studied at various regenerating times, ranging from 3 to 22 h after partial hepatectomy. Three PI-PLC isoforms (beta1, gamma1, delta1) were examined in control and regenerating liver cells by using specific antibodies. By means of in situ immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy, PI-PLC beta1 was found mainly in the nucleoplasm and this pattern was not modified after hepatectomy. On the contrary, the nuclear gamma1 isoform showed a marked decrease at 3 and 16 h after hepatectomy, but a clear increase at 22 h covering with bright intensity the whole nucleus. The PI-PLC delta1 isoform, which is exclusively cytoplasmic, was not altered during rat liver regeneration. By western blotting analysis on whole cell homogenates, none of the PI-PLC isozymes under study showed proliferation-linked modification. However, analyses of isolated nuclei identified changes in the nucleus associated PI-PLC gamma1 that paralleled the in situ observation whereas the beta1 isoform was unmodified at all the times examined. Nuclear phosphodiesterase activity on PIP2 was lower at 3 and 16 h, in comparison with sham operated rats, increased at 6 h and reached the highest value after 22 h. Consistently, the recovery of PIP2, obtained in conditions that optimise PIP-kinase activity, showed a marked decrease at 3 h and an increase up to 16 h of liver regeneration, followed by a further decrease at 22 h. These data are consistent with a close relationship between cell proliferation and the nuclear inositide cycle, depending, in rat liver, predominantly on the modulation of the gamma1 isoform of PI-PLC.
