A monoclonal antibody (OKT3) directed against the T cell receptor (TcR)/CD3 molecular complex, as well as a protein kinase C (PKC) activator (phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate, PMA) were added to a culture of tumoral Jurkat T cells, in order to precise the sequence of intracellular signals leading to T cell activation. The experiments were performed in the presence or in absence of various stimulators of adenylate cyclase (AC) such as forskolin (FK), cholera toxin (CT) or prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). OKT3 increased inositol phosphate (IP) production ; in parallel, it induced a slight accumulation of cAMP. The effect was markedly potentiated in presence of FK or CT, and to a lesser extent in the presence of PGE2. FK stimulated adenylate cyclase of Jurkat cell membranes, but the effect was not potentiated by OKT3, suggesting that potentiation of cAMP accumulation requires intact cells and is not mediated by direct receptor coupling. On the other hand, elevated cAMP accumulation induced a negative feedback on IP production. The effect of OKT3 on cAMP was mimicked by A23187, a Ca2+ ionophore, and abolished in the absence of extracellular Ca2+. PMA had the same effect as OKT3 on basal or FK- and CT-induced accumulation of cAMP. In contrast, it inhibited the PGE2 effect on the cyclic nucleotide. After desensitization of PKC by pretreatment with a high concentration of PMA, the phorbol ester was no longer effective. Under those conditions, facilitation by OKT3 of FK-induced accumulation of cAMP was preserved, whereas potentiation by the monoclonal antibody of the PGE2 stimulation of AC was even enhanced. The data indicate that cAMP accumulation indirectly elicited by phospholipase C activation is, at least partly, mediated by IP-dependent Ca2+ mobilization, while PKC is preferentially effective as an inhibitor of PGE2 stimulation.
