AbstractThe Kvß1.3 subunit modifies the gating and pharmacology of Kv1.5 channels in a PKC-dependent manner, decreasing channel sensitivity to bupivacaine- and quinidine-mediated blockade. Cardiac Kv1.5 channels associate with receptor for activated C kinase 1 (RACK1), the Kvß1.3 subunit and different PKC isoforms, resulting in the formation of a functional channelosome. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of PKC inhibition on bupivacaine and quinidine block of Kv1.5 + Kvß1.3 channels. HEK293 cells were transfected with Kv1.5 + Kvß1.3 channels, and currents were recorded using the whole-cell configuration of the patch-clamp technique. PKC inhibition was achieved by incubating the cells with either calphostin C or bisindolylmaleimide II and the effects of bupivacaine and quinidine were analysed. The voltage-dependent inactivation of Kv1.5 + Kvß1.3 channels and their pharmacological behavior after PKC inhibition with calphostin C were similar to those displayed by Kv1.5 channels alone. Indeed, the IC50 values for bupivacaine were similar in cells whose PKC was inhibited with calphostin C or bisindolylmaleimide II. Similar results were also observed in the presence of quinidine. The finding that the voltage-dependence of inactivation and the pharmacology of Kv1.5 + Kvß1.3 channels after PKC inhibition resembled that observed in Kv1.5 channels suggests that both processes are dependent on PKC-mediated phosphorylation. These results may have clinical relevance in diseases that are characterized by alterations in kinase activity.
