Challenge of Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells with the divalent cation ionophore A23187 caused a marked increase in the deacylation of [3H]arachidonic acid but not of [14C]palmitic acid. When the cells were treated with 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and A23187, there was an additional increase in the deacylation of [3H]arachidonic acid compared to that observed with either agent alone. In contrast to deacylation, the stimulation of prostaglandin production by A23187 was small compared to the stimulation by TPA. Cycloheximide inhibited synthesis of prostaglandins in TPA-treated cells, but did not block the stimulated deacylation caused by either TPA or A23187. These data indicate that, while both TPA and A23187 stimulated the deacylation of [3H]arachidonic acid, TPA had an additional, cycloheximide-sensitive effect that was required for efficient conversion of the release fatty acids to prostaglandins. Thus, although required, deacylation appeared to be independent of and insufficient to stimulate maximum prostaglandin synthesis in these cells.
