Abstract

The effect of cancer-associated galactosyltransferase acceptor (CAGA) on incorporation on a variety of macromolecular precursors has been studied in transformed and nontransformed cells. Incorporation of [3H]-mannose, [3H]-galactose, and [3H]-glucosamine into acid precipitable material after one-hour pulse was inhibited more than 70% within four hours after exposure to CAGA in polyoma-transformed BHK cells and within eight hours after exposure in chick embryo fibroblasts infected with a temperature-sensitive RSV mutant (Ts68) grown at the permissive temperature (CEF-RSV 37°C). Initial short-term of uptake (< one minute) and total long-term uptake (one hour) of the labelled carbohydrates (acid-soluble and acid-insoluble material) was inhibited less than 15% over this period. Incorporation of 14C-leucine, 3H-serine, 3H-uridine, and 3H-thymidine into acid-precipitable material was also inhibited > 85% in transformed cells, but more than 12-hour exposure to CAGA was required before maximal inhibition was detected. Uptake of these labelled precursors was inhibited less than 20% up to eight hours after exposure to CAGA. In nontransformed cells (BHK and CEF) incorporation of labelled monosaccharides as well as protein and nucleic acid precursors into acid-precipitable material was reduced less than 25% up to 12 hours following exposure to CAGA. Infected CEF grown at the nonpermissive temperature (CEF-RSV 41°C) were affected to an extent similar to other nontransformed cells. These data suggest that the specific action of CAGA on transformed cells may be due to inhibition of glycoconjugate synthesis.
