Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinases 1 and 2 and TRPC1 Channels are Required for Calcium-Sensing Receptor-Stimulated MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation

Abstract : The calcium-sensing receptor (CaR), is a G protein-dependent receptor that responds to increments in extracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](o)). We previously reported that an increase in [Ca(2+)](o) induced a release of intracellular calcium and Ca(2+) entry via store operated channels (SOCs). We also demonstrated that MCF-7 cells express Transient Receptor Potential canonical 1 (TRPC1) channels. Herein, we investigated CaR intracellular signaling pathways and examined the role of TRPC1 in CaR-induced cell proliferation, through the extracellular signal-regulated Kinases 1 & 2 (ERK1/2) pathways. Treatment by [Ca(2+)](o) increased both MCF-7 cell proliferation and TRPC1 expression. Both the [Ca(2+)](o) proliferative effect and TRPC1 protein levels were abolished by the ERK1/2 inhibitors. Moreover, [Ca(2+)](o) failed to increase cell proliferation either in the presence of CaR or TRPC1 siRNAs. Both [Ca(2+)](o) and the selective CaR activator spermine, elicited time and dose-dependent ERK1/2 phosphorylation. ERK1/2 phosphorylation was almost completely inhibited by treatment with the phospholipase C and the protein kinase C inhibitors. Treatment with 2-aminoethoxydiphenyl borate (2-APB), and SKF-96365 or by siTRPC1 diminished both [Ca(2+)](o)- and spermine-stimulated ERK1/2 phosphorylation. Moreover, down-regulation of TRPC1 by siRNA reduced the Ca(2+) entry induced by CaR activation. We conclude that the CaR activates ERK1/2 via a PLC/PKC-dependent pathway. Moreover, TRPC1 is required for the ERK1/2 phosphorylation, Ca(2+) entry and the CaR-proliferative effect.
