Abstract

Protein kinase C (PKC) activation induces neuronal differentiation of SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. This study examines the role of PKCbeta isoforms in this process. The PKCbeta-specific inhibitor LY379196 had no effect on 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA)-induced neurite outgrowth from SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. On the other hand, PKCbeta inhibition suppressed the TPA-stimulated increase in neuropeptide Y mRNA, activation of neuropeptide Y gene promoter elements, and phosphorylation of Erk1/2. The TPA-induced increase in neuropeptide Y expression was also inhibited by the MEK inhibitor PD98059. These data indicate that activation of a PKCbeta isoform, through a pathway involving Erk1/2, leads to increased expression of neuronal differentiation genes in neuroblastoma cells.
