Abstractdc.description.abstractThe effect of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on intact Leydig cell phospholipid methylation was studied. Hormonal stimulation of rat Leydig cells increased the incorporation of[methyl-3H]methionine into phospholipids threefold. This effect was observed after 10 minutes of incubation time and was time and dose dependent with a maximal stimulation at 67 ng/ml of hCG. In the presence of hCG, 3Hlabeled methyl groups were preferentially incorporated into phosphatidyl-N-monomethylethanolamine. This effect of hCG was not reproduced by dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), cholera toxin, or forskolin. Purified hCG[3 subunit but not hCGc~ subunit had stimulatory activity on Leydig cell phospholipid methylation. We conclude that luteinizing hormone (LH)/hCG stimulates specifically Leydig cell phospholipid methylation, because LH-releasing hormone or [ArgS]-vasopressin did not modify these reactions. We postulate that these reactions are occurring at a cellular level that involves hormone-receptor interaction. It is also suggested that this biological response involves hCG[3 subunit receptor interaction and does not require cAMP synthesis.
