Polyphosphoinositide hydrolysis was studied in membranes prepared from a human T cell leukemia line, JURKAT, prelabeled with myo-[2-3H]inositol. The formation of inositol bis- and trisphosphates was stimulated in a buffer with 110 nM free Ca2+ with a nonhydrolyzable GTP analogue, GTPγS, and NaF plus AlCl3 in a time- and concentration-dependent manner. GTPγS and NaF-AlCl3 had no significant effect on the inositol monophosphate level. AlCl3 enhanced the NaF-stimulated release of inositol polyphosphates. Optimum concentrations of NaF and AlCl3 produced 1.5-fold more inositol polyphosphates than that produced by optimum concentration of GTPγS. OKT3 monoclonal antibody, an antibody against the T-cell receptor complex, did not stimulate the inositol polyphosphate formation by JURKAT membranes even in the presence of GTP, although the antibody at the concentrations used markedly stimulated the hydrolysis of polyphosphoinositides in intact JURKAT cells. © 1987.
