Abstract

Abstract A phosphatidylinositol (PI) kinase activity associated with certain protein tyrosine kinases important in cell proliferation phosphorylates the 3′ hydroxyl position of PI to produce phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate (PI-3-P). Here we report that, in addition to PI-3′ kinase activity, anti-phosphotyrosine (α-P-tyr) immunoprecipitates from platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-stimulated smooth muscle cells (SMC) contain lipid kinase activities that utilize the substrates phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate (PI-4-P) and phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PI-4,5-P 2). These activities are absent in α-P-tyr immunoprecipitates from quiescent SMC. The product of PI-4-P phosphorylation appears to be phosphatidylinositol-3,4-bisphosphate (PI-3,4-P 2), a lipid not previously reported. The product of PI-4,5-P 2 phosphorylation is phosphatidylinositol-trisphosphate (PIP 3). PI-3-P was detected in quiescent SMC and increased only slightly in response to PDGF. PIP 3 and the putative PI-3,4-P 2 appeared only after the addition of mitogen. Both the temporal production of these novel phospholipids after PDGF stimulation and the observation of the enzymatic activities that produce them in α-P-tyr immunoprecipitates suggest that these phospholipids are excellent candidates for mediators of the PDGF mitogenic response.
