HeNe (632 nm) irradiation (5, 15 and 30 min) of an embryonal human cell line (EUE) was used to study the short-term effects on energy charge and the rapid, energy-dependent, remodelling processes of cytoskeletal and adhesion structures. The adenosine triphosphate (ATP) concentration, tested by luminometric and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) procedures, is constant after 15 and 30 min of HeNe treatment; the lower phosphorylated nucleotides, i.e. adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and adenosine monophosphate (AMP), change after 30 min in opposite directions: the ADP concentration decreases by 39% whilst that of AMP increases about sixfold. The adenylate energy charge (AEC) decreases by 21.7% in treated EUE cells (AEC = 0.65) in comparison with untreated EUE cells (AEC = 0.83). In HeNe-treated cells, the remodelling of cytoskeletal and adhesion molecules becomes evident after 15 min of treatment. The following events are important: (1) modification of stress fibre assembly and increase in vinculin-containing adhesion plaques; (2) assembly and bundling of intermediate filaments; (3) increase in laminin and L-cell adhesion molecules (L-CAM) expression. The lowered energy charge in irradiated cells is related to the increase in AMP production at the expense of ADP. ATP is dynamically constant despite its requirement in short-time remodelling processes of the cytoskeletal network which are enhanced in irradiated cells.
