Isolation of the serotoninergic 5-HT 4(e) receptor from human heart and comparative analysis of its pharmacological profile in C6-glial and CHO cell lines

Abstract : RT–PCR technique was used to clone the human 5-HT4(e) receptor (h5-HT4(e)) from heart atrium. We showed that this h5-HT4(e) receptor splice variant is restricted to brain and heart atrium. Recombinant h5-HT4(e) receptor was stably expressed in CHO and C6-glial cell lines at 347 and 88 fmol mg−1 protein, respectively. Expression of h5-HT4(e) receptors at the cell membrane was confirmed by immunoblotting. The receptor binding profile, determined by competition with [3H]-GR113808 of a number of 5-HT4 ligands, was consistent with that previously reported for other 5-HT4 receptor isoforms. Surprisingly, we found that the rank order of potencies (EC50) of 5-HT4 agonists obtained from adenylyl cyclase functional assays was inversely correlated to their rank order of affinities (Ki) obtained from binding assays. Furthermore, EC50 values for 5-HT, renzapride and cisapride were 2 fold lower in C6-glial cells than in CHO cells. ML10302 and renzapride behaved like partial agonists on the h5-HT4(e) receptor. These results are in agreement with the reported low efficacy of the these two compounds on L-type Ca2+ currents and myocyte contractility in human atrium. A constitutive activity of the h5-HT4(e) receptor was observed in CHO cells in the absence of any 5-HT4 ligand and two 5-HT4 antagonists, GR113808 and ML10375, behaved as inverse agonists. These data show that the h5-HT4(e) receptor has a pharmacological profile which is close to the native h5-HT4 receptor in human atrium with a functional potency which is dependent on the cellular context in which the receptor is expressed
