The lipoglycoproteins of the WNT family act on seven transmembrane-spanning Class Frizzled receptors. Here, we show that WNT-5A evokes a proliferative response in a mouse microglia-like cell line (N13), which is sensitive to pertussis toxin, thus implicating the involvement of heterotrimeric G proteins of the G(i/o) family. We continue to show that WNT-5A stimulation of N13 membranes and permeabilized cells evokes the exchange of GDP for GTP of pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins employing [gamma-(35)S]GTP assay and activity state-specific antibodies to GTP-bound G(i) proteins. Our functional analysis of the PTX-sensitivity of WNT-induced G protein activation and PCR analysis of G protein and FZD expression patterns suggest that WNT-5A stimulation leads to the activation of G(i2/3) proteins in N13 cells possibly mediated by FZD(5), the predominant FZD expressed.
