We have previously described that silencing of the mitochondrial protein OPA1 enhances mitochondrial Ca2+ signaling and aldosterone production in H295R adrenocortical cells. Since extramitochondrial OPA1 (emOPA1) was reported to facilitate cAMP-induced lipolysis, we hypothesized that emOPA1, via the enhanced hydrolysis of cholesterol esters, augments aldosterone production in H295R cells. A few OPA1 immunopositive spots were detected in approximately 40% of the cells. In cell fractionation studies OPA1/COX IV (mitochondrial marker) ratio in the post-mitochondrial fractions was an order of magnitude higher than that in the mitochondrial fraction. The ratio of long to short OPA1 isoforms was lower in post-mitochondrial than in mitochondrial fractions. Knockdown of OPA1 failed to reduce db-cAMP-induced phosphorylation of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL), Ca2+ signaling and aldosterone secretion. In conclusion, OPA1 could be detected in the post-mitochondrial fractions, nevertheless, OPA1 did not interfere with the cAMP - PKA - HSL mediated activation of aldosterone secretion.
