Abstract: Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase catalyses the dephosphorylation of Ins(1,4,5)P3 in the 5 position. At 1 microM Ins(1,4,5)P3, 10-15% of total activity of a bovine brain homogenate was measured in the soluble fraction, whereas 85-90% was in the particulate fraction. Particulate activity could be solubilized by cholate or, to a lower extent, by 2 M KCl. Two soluble enzymes (type I and type II) could be fractionated by DEAE-Sephacel chromatography. Soluble activities have been further purified by blue-Sepharose, Sephacryl S-200 and phosphocellulose chromatography. Specific activities reached 10-30 mumol.min-1 mg protein-1 for type I and were 10-20 times lower for type II. Type I and type II Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase displayed different Km values and molecular masses, as estimated by gel filtration. Type I dephosphorylated both Ins(1,4,5)P3 and Ins(1,3,4,5)P4; in contrast, type II specifically dephosphorylated Ins(1,4,5)P3 but not Ins(1,3,4,5)P4. Type I Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase eluted as a single peak of activity with an apparent molecular mass of 51 kDa when gel filtration was performed in the presence of cholate. This molecular mass is identical to the molecular mass estimated for the particulate Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase that was solubilized by cholate. Km values for Ins(1,4,5)P3 and Ins(1,3,4,5)P4 obtained with type I Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase were 11 microM and 1 microM, respectively. Similar values were obtained with particulate Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase. In conclusion, the catalytic domains of type I and particulate Ins(1,4,5)P3 5-phosphatase activity may be very similar, if not identical, but different from type II phosphatase.
