Abstract [en]

Caveolae and caveolin have been implicated as being involved in the signal transduction of many receptors, including the EGF, PDGF, LPA and beta3-adrenergic receptors. To investigate the role of caveolin-1 (Cav1) in these signaling pathways in brown adipose tissue, primary brown adipocyte cultures from Cav1-ablated mice and wild-type mice were investigated. In pre-adipocytes, Cav1-ablation affected neither the G-protein coupled LPA receptor signaling to Erk1/2, nor the receptor tyrosine kinases PDGF- or EGF-receptor signaling to Erk1/2. Mature primary Cav1-/- brown adipocytes accumulated lipids and expressed aP2 to the same extent as did wild-type cells. However, the cAMP levels induced by the beta3-adrenergic receptor agonist CL316,243 were lower in the Cav1-/- cultures, with an unchanged EC50 for CL316,243. Also the response to the direct adenylyl cyclase agonist forskolin was reduced. Thus, in brown adipocytes, Cav1 is apparently required for an intact response to adenylyl cyclase-linked agonists/activators, whereas other signaling pathways examined function without Cav1
