Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) through six subtypes of G protein-coupled LPA receptors (LPA1 to LPA6) mediates a variety of cancer cell functions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cooperative effects of G12/13 and Gi proteins through LPA2 on cancer cell survival to cisplatin (CDDP). In cell survival assay, cells were treated with CDDP every 24 h for 2 days. The long-term CDDP treated (HT-CDDP) cells established from fibrosarcoma HT1080 cells were pretreated with an LPA2 agonist, GRI-977143. The cell survival rate to CDDP of HT-CDDP cells was significantly increased by GRI-977143. The elevated cell survival to CDDP was suppressed by LPA2 knockdown. Since G12/13 protein stimulates Rho-mediated signaling, RhoA and RhoC knockdown cells were generated from HT1080 cells (HT1080-RhoA and HT1080-RhoC cells, respectively). In the presence of GRI-977143, HT1080-RhoA and HT1080-RhoC cells showed the low cell survival rates to CDDP. On the other hand, Gi protein inhibits adenylyl cyclase (AC) activity. Before cell survival assay, cells were treated with a Gi protein inhibitor, pertussis toxin (PTX) for 24 h. The cell survival rate to CDDP of HT1080 cells was significantly reduced by PTX. Furthermore, when HT1080-RhoA and HT1080-RhoC cells were pretreated with PTX, the cell survival rates to CDDP of both cells were markedly inhibited by PTX. The present results suggest that cooperation of G12/13 and Gi proteins activated by LPA2 enhances the cell survival of HT1080 cells treated with CDDP. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc.
