Angiotensin II (Ang-II) regulates a variety of cellular functions including cortisol secretion. In the present report, we demonstrate that Ang-II activates phospholipase D (PLD) in zona fasciculata (ZF) cells of bovine adrenal glands, and that this effect is associated to the stimulation of cortisol secretion by this hormone. PLD activation was dependent(More)
We reported recently that sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a novel regulator of aldosterone secretion in zona glomerulosa cells of adrenal glands and that phospholipase D (PLD) is implicated in this process. We now show that S1P causes the phosphorylation of protein kinase B (PKB) and extracellularly regulated kinases 1/2 (ERK 1/2), which is an indication(More)
We show here for the first time that sphingosine-1-phosphate (Sph-1-P) stimulates cortisol secretion in zona fasciculata cells of bovine adrenal glands. This effect was dependent upon protein kinase C (PKC) and extracellular Ca2+, and was inhibited by pertussis toxin. Sph-1-P activated phospholipase D (PLD) through a pertussis toxin-sensitive mechanism,(More)
Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive sphingolipid capable of regulating critical physiological and pathological functions. Here, we report for the first time that S1P stimulates aldosterone secretion in cells of the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal gland. Regulation of aldosterone secretion is important because this hormone controls electrolyte and(More)
