Abstract PRL receptor (PRL-R) activation by PRL triggers a cascade of intracellular events including homodimerization of the receptor, activation of cytoplasmic receptor-associated tyrosine kinase and tyrosine-phosphorylation of various signal transducers. In CHO cells, transfected with the long form of PRL-R, an increase in [Ca2+]i was observed following PRL stimulation whereas Ca2+ is generally coupled with the phosphoinositide metabolism. In this study, we investigated phosphoinositide involvement in the PRL transduction pathway. We report that PRL induces rapid increases in two novel inositol phospholipids, almost certainly PtdIns(4,5)P2 and PtdIns(3,4,5)P3. Pre-traitment of CHO cells with wortmanin, a specific PtdIns3-kinase inhibitor, considerably reduces the PRL-induced increase in PtdInd(3,4,5)P3, thus suggesting an involvement of this enzyme in the cascade of activation of cytoplasmic kinase proteins. A pathway beginning with the activation of PtdIns3-kinase, phosphorylation of PtdIns(4,5)P2 and rapid synthesis of PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 is proposed. PtIns(3,4,5)P3 may acts as a lipid second messenger, directly or indirectly responsible for some of the multiple cell changes attributed to PRL.
