ABSTRACT
We studied the bradykinin-induced changes in phosphoinositide composition of N1E-115 neuroblastoma cells using a combination of biochemistry, microscope imaging, and mathematical modeling. Phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) decreased over the first 30 s, and then recovered over the following 2-3 min. However, the rate and amount of inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3) production were much greater than the rate or amount of PIP2 decline. A mathematical model of phosphoinositide turnover based on this data predicted that PIP2 synthesis is also stimulated by bradykinin, causing an early transient increase in its concentration. This was subsequently confirmed experimentally. Then, we used single-cell microscopy to further examine phosphoinositide turnover by following the translocation of the pleckstrin homology domain of PLCdelta1 fused to green fluorescent protein (PH-GFP). The observed time course could be simulated by incorporating binding of PIP2 and InsP3 to PH-GFP into the model that had been used to analyze the biochemistry. Furthermore, this analysis could help to resolve a controversy over whether the translocation of PH-GFP from membrane to cytosol is due to a decrease in PIP2 on the membrane or an increase in InsP3 in cytosol; by computationally clamping the concentrations of each of these compounds, the model shows how both contribute to the dynamics of probe translocation.

Simulation of PH-GFP translocation. The compartmental model used in Fig. 1 was expanded to include PH-GFP binding. Additional parameters are in Table AII, and model equations are in the . The blue curve represents the relative change in total cytosolic GFP (free PH-GFP + InsP3–PH-GFP), and can be directly compared with the corresponding experimental results in Fig. 4. The pink curve corresponds to the relative change in PIP2–PH-GFP surface density on the plasma membrane. Because the confocal imaging system detects both fluorescence from the membrane and the adjacent cytosol, the PIP2–PH-GFP results were adjusted by an appropriate contribution from the total cytosolic signal in the yellow curve, as detailed in the text, to allow comparison with the experimental result in Fig. 4.

Mentions: We elaborated the model used to analyze the biochemical data on inositide turnover to see if it could also predict the PH-GFP translocation experiments. The basal concentration of total PH-GFP in the cytosol (free plus bound to InsP3) was taken as 6 μM from our measurements. Binding constants to InsP3 and PIP2 were taken from in vitro measurements reported in the literature (Hirose et al., 1999). Taken with the basal levels of InsP3 and PIP2, these determined the basal levels of the bound forms of PH-GFP.
