Abstract

Two subtypes of the human calcitonin receptor (hCTR) have been described which differ from one another by the presence or absence of a 16-amino acid insert in the first intracellular loop. Both isoforms were stably expressed in baby hamster kidney cells to compare their ligand binding and second messenger coupling. The binding affinity and the on/off rate of binding for salmon CT were identical for the two receptor isoforms. However, the presence of the insert significantly reduced the ability of the receptor to couple to both adenylate cyclase and phospholipase C. Stimulation of a transient calcium response was only observed with the insert-negative receptor. Similarly, the ED50 for the cAMP response is 100-fold higher for the insert-positive form compared with the insert-negative form of the receptor. However, the maximal cAMP response was equivalent for both receptor isoforms. The rate of internalization of the insert-positive form of the receptor is significantly impaired relative to the insert-negative receptor, which suggests that this process may be dependent on the stimulation of a second messenger pathway. Cloning and characterization of the relevant portion of the hCTR gene revealed that these isoforms are generated by alternative splicing. We also discovered a third isoform of the hCTR, which can be generated by alternative splicing at the same position. The presence of a stop codon in this newly described alternative exon would lead to premature termination of the receptor at the C-terminal end of the first transmembrane domain.
