We previously demonstrated that Ang II inhibits the renal plasma membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase. in the present work we have studied the effect of Ang II, at concentrations similar to those found in the renal interstitium, on the Ca(2+)-ATPase from proximal tubule cells. High Ang II concentration (5 x 10(-7) mol/L) led to the recovery of Ca(2+)-ATPase activity previously inhibited by 50% at low Ang II concentration (10(-10) mol/L). Reacdvation occurred in parallel with: (i) formation of only two dead-end metabolites [Ang-(3-4) and Tyr] after incubation of isolated membranes with micromolar Ang II; and (ii) dissociation of constitutive AT(1)R/AT(2)R heterodimers, which are preserved with 10(-10) mol/LAng II. When the membranes were incubated with 10(-14) mol/LAng-(3-4), inhibition by 10(-10) mol/L Ang II was no longer observed. the counteracting effect of Ang-(3-4) was abolished by PD123319, an antagonist of AT(2)R, and mimicked by CGP42112A, an agonist of AT(2)R. Ang-(1-7) is an intermediate in the formation of Ang(3-4) via a pathway involving angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), and complete dipeptide breakdown to Tyr and Val is impaired by low Ang II. We conclude that Ang-(3-4) may be a physiological regulator of active Ca(2+) fluxes in renal proximal cells by acting within the renin-angiotensin axis. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
