We examined the mechanisms involved in this release and established that shear-induced ATP release was mediated through vesicular fusion and was dependent on Ca 2+ entry into the cell through L-type voltage-sensitive Ca 2+ channels. Degradation of secreted ATP by apyrase prevented shear-induced PGE 2 release. Introduction: Fluid shear induces a rapid rise in intracellular calcium ([Ca 2+ ] i ) in osteoblasts that mediates many of the cellular responses associated with mechanotransduction in bone. A potential mechanism for this increase in [Ca 2+ ] i is the activation of purinergic (P2) receptors resulting from shear-induced extracellular release of ATP. This study was designed to determine the effects of fluid shear on ATP release and the possible mechanisms associated with this release. Materials and Methods: MC3T3-E1 preosteoblasts were plated on type I collagen, allowed to proliferate to 90% confluency, and subjected to 12 dynes/cm 2 laminar fluid flow using a parallel plate flow chamber. ATP release into the flow media was measured using a luciferin/luciferase assay. Inhibitors of channels, gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC), and vesicular formation were added before shear and main- tained in the flow medium for the duration of the experiment. Results and Conclusions: Fluid shear produced a transient increase in ATP release compared with static MC3T3-E1 cells (59.8 15.7 versus 6.2 1.8 nM, respectively), peaking within 1 minute of onset. Inhibition of calcium entry through the L-type voltage-sensitive Ca 2+ channel (L-VSCC) with nifedipine or verapamil significantly attenuated shear-induced ATP release. Channel inhibition had no effect on basal ATP release in static cells. Ca 2+-dependent ATP release in response to shear seemed to result from vesicular release and not through gap hemichannels. Vesicle disruption with N-ethylmaleimide, brefeldin A, or monensin prevented increases in flow-induced ATP release, whereas inhibition of gap hemichannels with either 18 -glycyrrhetinic acid or 18 -glycyrrhetinic acid did not. Degradation of extracellular ATP with apyrase prevented shear- induced increases in prostaglandin E 2 (PGE 2 ) release. These data suggest a time line of mechanotransduction wherein fluid shear activates L-VSCCs to promote Ca 2+ entry that, in turn, stimulates vesicular ATP release. Furthermore, these data suggest that P2 receptor activation by secreted ATP mediates flow-induced prosta- glandin release....
