OBJECTIVE: The present study is aimed at investigating the interaction of TRPV4 with TRPC1 and the functional role of such an interaction in flow-induced Ca(2+) influx. Hemodynamic blood flow is an important physiological factor that modulates vascular tone. One critical early event in this process is a cytosolic Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)) rise in endothelial cells in response to flow. METHODS AND RESULTS: With the use of fluorescence resonance energy transfer, coimmunoprecipitation, and subcellular colocalization methods, it was found that TRPC1 interacts physically with TRPV4 to form a complex. In functional studies, flow elicited a transient [Ca(2+)](i) increase in TRPV4-expressing human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells. Coexpression of TRPC1 with TRPV4 markedly prolonged this [Ca(2+)](i) transient; it also enabled this [Ca(2+)](i) transient to be negatively modulated by protein kinase G. Furthermore, this flow-induced [Ca(2+)](i) increase was markedly inhibited by anti-TRPC1-blocking antibody T1E3 and a dominant-negative construct TRPC1 Delta 567-793 in TRPV4-C1-coexpressing HEK cells and human umbilical vein endothelial cells. T1E3 also inhibited flow-induced vascular dilation in isolated rat small mesenteric artery segments. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that TRPC1 interacts physically with TRPV4 to form a complex, and this TRPV4-C1 complex may mediate flow-induced Ca(2+) influx in vascular endothelial cells. The association of TRPC1 with TRPV4 prolongs the flow-induced [Ca(2+)](i) transient, and it also enables this [Ca(2+)](i) transient to be negatively modulated by protein kinase G. This TRPV4-C1 complex plays a key role in flow-induced endothelial Ca(2+) influx.
