We compared the effects of Phospholipases A2, C, B and D on [3H]nitrendipine binding to hamster cardiac membranes, in the absence and presence of ATP or GTP. Phospholipase A2, competitively inhibited [3H]nitrendipine binding to hamster cardiac membranes unchanged by ATP or GTP (Ki = 5 ng/ml); as evidenced by complete and reversible displacement of [3H]nitrendipine binding and increase in KD on Scatchard analyses. Phospholipase C also completely inhibited [3H]nitrendipine binding to hamster cardiac membranes (Ki = 5 ug/ml) with a decrease in Bmax and no change in KD on Scatchard analyses. The addition of GTP alone inhibited the PLC effect in EGTA-treated membranes. The addition of GTP with either CaCl2, or ATP or both resulted in an equal and opposite enhancement of the PLC effect. Phospholipases B and D had no effect on [3H]nitrendipine binding. These data support: (1) Direct effect of PLA2 on dihydropyridine binding. (2) Indirect regulation of dihydropyridine binding by Phospholipase C through a GTP and ATP-sensitive mechanism.
