The m2 and m3 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors were expressed in CHO cells and were shown to couple to the release of calcium from intracellular stores. The m3 receptor, but not the m2 receptor, also coupled to calcium influx. Chimeric m2/m3 receptors were used to determine the structural domain of the m3 receptor linked to the regulation of calcium(More)
Muscarinic m3 receptor-mediated changes in cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) occur by activation of Ca2+ release channels present in the endoplasmic reticulum membrane and Ca2+ entry pathways across the plasma membrane. In this report we demonstrate the coupling of m3 muscarinic receptors to the activation of a voltage-insensitive, cation-selective(More)
We have provided preliminary characterization of a single channel Ca2+ conductance in CHO cells. We have demonstrated that the channel conducts Ca2+, is regulated by m5 receptors, is voltage-independent, has an extremely low conductance, and is second messenger-independent. This channel may be the receptor-operated channel required for downstream activation(More)
