|Title||Roles of Munc18-3 in amylase release from rat parotid acinar cells.|
|Journal||Arch Biochem Biophys|
Several "soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein attachment protein receptor" (SNARE) proteins have been identified in rat parotid acinar cells, including VAMP-2, syntaxin 4, and SNAP-23. Furthermore, an association between Munc18c (Munc18-3) and syntaxin 4 has been reported. However, the role of Munc18-3 in secretory granule exocytosis on parotid acinar cells remains unclear. In the present study, we investigated the role of Munc18-3 in rat parotid acinar cells. Munc18-3 was localized on the apical plasma membrane where exocytosis occurs and interacted with syntaxin 4. Anti-Munc18-3 antibody dose-dependently decreased isoproterenol (IPR)-induced amylase release from SLO-permeabilized parotid acinar cells. Furthermore, stimulation of the acinar cells with IPR induced translocation of Munc18-3 from the plasma membrane to the cytosol. Munc-18-3 was not phosphorylated by a catalytic subunit of protein kinase (PK) A but phosphorylated by PKC. Treatment of the plasma membrane with PKC but not PKA induced displacement of Munc18-3 from the membrane. The results indicate that Munc18-3 regulates exocytosis in the acinar cells for IPR-induced amylase release and that phosphorylation of Munc18-3 by PKA is not involved in the mechanism.
