In the human erythroleukemia cell line, HEL, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and the stable prostacyclin analogue, iloprost, increase cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) via pertussis toxin-sensitive and -insensitive pathways. Unlike iloprost, the stable prostacyclin analogue cicaprost (ZK 96480), is devoid of agonistic properties at prostaglandin E2 receptors. We compared the effects of cicaprost, iloprost and PGE2 on [Ca2+]i in HEL cells. Cicaprost, iloprost and PGE2 were similarly potent to increase [Ca2+]i in HEL cells. However, unlike the effects of PGE2, those of the prostacyclin analogues were not inhibited by pertussis toxin. The prostaglandins studied increased [Ca2+]i through both mobilization from internal stores and Ca2+ influx from the extracellular space. Prostacyclin analogue- and PGE2-induced rises in [Ca2+]i were desensitized in a homologous manner. Additionally, there was cross-desensitization between cicaprost and iloprost, but not between the prostacyclin analogues and PGE2. Our data suggest that in HEL cells (i) cicaprost and iloprost act through prostacyclin receptors and (ii) that these receptors couple to pertussis toxin-insensitive heterotrimeric regulatory guanine nucleotide-binding proteins, (iii) resulting in an increase in [Ca2+]i by Ca2+ mobilization from internal stores and sustained influx.
