Adenylate cyclase 6 determines cAMP formation and aquaporin-2 phosphorylation and trafficking in inner medulla.

ABSTRACT: Arginine vasopressin (AVP) enhances water reabsorption in the renal collecting duct by vasopressin V? receptor (V?R)-mediated activation of adenylyl cyclase (AC), cAMP-promoted phosphorylation of aquaporin-2 (AQP2), and increased abundance of AQP2 on the apical membrane. Multiple isoforms of adenylate cyclase exist, and the roles of individual AC isoforms in water homeostasis are not well understood. Here, we found that levels of AC6 mRNA, the most highly expressed AC isoform in the inner medulla, inversely correlate with fluid intake. Moreover, mice lacking AC6 had lower levels of inner medullary cAMP, reduced abundance of phosphorylated AQP2 (at both serine-256 and serine-269), and lower urine osmolality than wild-type mice. Water deprivation or administration of the V?R agonist dDAVP did not increase urine osmolality of AC6-deficient mice to the levels of wild-type mice. Furthermore, AC6-deficient mice lacked dDAVP-promoted inner medullary cAMP formation and phosphorylation of serine-269 and had attenuated increases in both phosphorylation of serine-256 and apical membrane AQP2 trafficking. In summary, AC6 expression determines inner medullary cAMP formation and AQP2 phosphorylation and trafficking, the absence of which causes nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
