Abstract

Bronchial epithelial cell migration, attachment, and proliferation are important processes in response to airway injury. We have shown that tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α stimulates the migration of bovine bronchial epithelial cells (BBEC) in vitro. We hypothesized that protein kinase C (PKC) may be one of the intracellular signaling mediators of TNF-α in BBEC. In this study, we have identified multiple PKC isoforms in BBEC and measured total cellular PKC activity. Polyclonal antibodies to the PKC-α, -β2, - δ, and -ε isoforms recognized protein bands around 80-90 kDa. BBEC primary cultures treated with either 500 U/ml TNF-α for 2-4 h or 100 ng/ml 12-O- tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate for 15 min resulted in three- to fivefold increases in PKC activity in the particulate fractions of crude cell lysates. This activity was inhibited by 1 μM calphostin C or 10 μM H-7. Similarly, TNF-α-stimulated BBEC migration was reduced at least twofold in the presence of H-7 or calphostin C. These studies suggest that the activation of PKC is necessary for TNF-α-stimulated BBEC migration.
