When treated with nerve growth factor, PC12 cells will differentiate over the course of several days. Here, we have followed changes during differentiation in the cellular levels of phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase Cβ (PLCβ) and its activator, Gαq, which together mediate Ca2+ release. We also followed changes in the level of the novel PLCβ binding(More)
Phosphoinositide-specific-phospholipase Cβ (PLCβ) is the main effector of Gαq stimulation which is coupled to receptors that bind acetylcholine, bradykinin, dopamine, angiotensin II as well as other hormones and neurotransmitters. Using a yeast two-hybrid and other approaches, we have recently found that the same region of PLCβ that binds Gαq also interacts(More)
Phospholipase Cβ (PLCβ) is the main effector of the Gαq signaling pathway relaying different extracellular sensory information to generate intracellular calcium signals. Besides this classic function, we have found that PLCβ plays an important but unknown role in regulating PC12 cell differentiation by interacting with components in the RNA-induced(More)
