Résumé : The response of rat submandibular glands to extracellular purines was tested. In crude cellular suspensions, ATP increased the [Ca2+]i mostly by promoting uptake of extracellular calcium. ATP caused the pHi to drop, a response blocked by chloride channel inhibitors. ATP also inhibited the basal and isoproterenol-stimulated activity of the Na+ -K+ -2Cl-cotransporter. These effects were reproduced by benzoyl-ATP, an agonist of ionotropic purinoceptors. In pure ductal suspensions, ATP activated a metabotropic P2Y1 purinergic receptor coupled to phospholipase C and opened a non-specific cation channel coupled to a P2X7 receptor. Activation of these receptors stimulated a Ca2+ -dependent and a Ca2+ -independent phospholipase A2, the latter resulting in kallikrein secretion. We conclude that purinergic agonists can modulate the activity of both acinar and ductal phases of secretion. Activation of metabotropic receptors coupled to phospholipase C could lead to responses resembling those to muscarinic or adrenergic agonists. Activation of ionotropic receptors could stimulate new intracellular responses also involved in secretory function.
