Synergistic modulation of KCNQ1/KCNE1 K(+) channels (IKs) by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) and [ATP]i

Synergistic modulation of KCNQ1/KCNE1 K(+) channels (IKs) by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) and [ATP]i

Cellular Signalling 27(7): 1457-1468

Cardiac KCNQ1/KCNE1 channels (IKs) are dependent on the concentration of membrane phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) and on cytosolic ATP by two distinct mechanisms. In this study we measured IKs and FRET between PH-PLCδ-based fluorescent PIP2 sensors in a stable KCNQ1/KCNE1 CHO cell line. Effects of activating either a muscarinic M3 receptor or the switchable phosphatase Ci-VSP on IKs were analyzed. Recovery of IKs from inhibition induced by muscarinic stimulation was incomplete despite full PIP2 resynthesis. Recovery of IKs was completely suppressed under ATP-free conditions, but partially restored by the ATP analog AMP-PCP, providing evidence that depletion of intracellular ATP inhibits IKs independent of PIP2-depletion. Simultaneous patch-clamp and FRET measurements in cells co-expressing Ci-VSP and the PIP2-FRET sensor revealed a component of IKs inhibition directly related to dynamic PIP2-depletion. A second component of inhibition was independent of acute changes in PIP2 and could be mimicked by ATP-free pipette solution, suggesting that it results from intracellular ATP-depletion. The reduction of intracellular ATP upon Ci-VSP activation appears to be independent of its activity as a phosphoinositide phosphatase. Our data demonstrate that ATP-depletion slowed IKs activation but had no short-term effect on PIP2 regeneration, suggesting that impaired PIP2-resynthesis cannot account for the rapid IKs inhibition by ATP-depletion. Furthermore, the second component of IKs inhibition by Ci-VSP was reduced by AMP-PCP in the pipette filling solution, indicating that direct binding of ATP to the KCNQ1/KCNE1 complex is required for voltage activation of IKs. We suggest that fluctuations of the cellular metabolic state regulate IKs in parallel with Gq-coupled PLC activation and PIP2-depletion.
