- Among the phagocytic leukocytes, monocytes have the important role of clearing out parasitic microorganisms. They accomplish this through production of toxic metabolites of oxygen. Trp-Lys-Tyr-Met-Val-D-Met (WKYMVm), a peptide that stimulates phosphoinositide (PI) hydrolysis in human leukocytes, including monocytes, binds to a unique cell surface receptor and stimulates superoxide generation, killing of Staphylococcus aureus, and activation of phospholipase D (PLD) in human monocytes. Preincubation of the cells with a PI-specific phospholipase C (PLC) inhibitor (U-73122), protein kinase C inhibitor (GF109203X), or intracellular Ca 2+ chelator (BAPTA/AM) before the peptide stimulus totally inhibits the peptide-induced PLD activation and superoxide generation. On the other hand, tyrosine kinase inhibitor genistein only partially inhibits the peptide-induced processes. The peptide-induced bacteria killing activity shares regulatory mechanisms for PLD activation with the superoxide generation, which is inhibited in the presence of 1-butanol. We suggest that the peptide stimulates PLD downstream of PLC activation and PLD activation in turn is essential for the peptide- induced immunological functions such as the superoxide generation and killing of bacteria by human monocytes.
