Activation of G(q)-protein-coupled receptors, including the alpha(1A)-adrenoceptor (alpha(1A)-AR), causes a sustained Ca(2+) influx via receptor-operated Ca(2+) (ROC) channels, following the transient release of intracellular Ca(2+). Transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) channel is one of the candidate proteins constituting the ROC channels, but the precise mechanism linking receptor activation to increased influx of Ca(2+) via TRPCs is not yet fully understood. We identified Snapin as a protein interacting with the C terminus of the alpha(1A)-AR. In receptor-expressing PC12 cells, co-transfection of Snapin augmented alpha(1A)-AR-stimulated sustained increases in intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)) via ROC channels. By altering the Snapin binding C-terminal domain of the alpha(1A)-AR or by reducing cellular Snapin with short interfering RNA, the sustained increase in [Ca(2+)](i) in Snapin-alpha(1A)-AR co-expressing PC12 cells was attenuated. Snapin co-immunoprecipitated with TRPC6 and alpha(1A)-AR, and these interactions were augmented upon alpha(1A)-AR activation, increasing the recruitment of TRPC6 to the cell surface. Our data suggest a new receptor-operated signaling mechanism where Snapin links the alpha(1A)-AR to TRPC6, augmenting Ca(2+) influx via ROC channels.
