Most animal cells express mixtures of the three subtypes of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP(3)R) encoded by vertebrate genomes. Activation of each subtype by different agonists has not hitherto been examined in cells expressing defined homogenous populations of IP(3)R. Here we measure Ca(2+) release evoked by synthetic analogues of IP(3) using a(More)
Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3R) are intracellular Ca(2+) channels. Most animal cells express mixtures of the three IP3R subtypes encoded by vertebrate genomes. Adenophostin A (AdA) is the most potent naturally occurring agonist of IP3R and it shares with IP3 the essential features of all IP3R agonists, namely structures equivalent to the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3 Rs) are intracellular Ca(2+) channels. Interactions of the commonly used antagonists of IP3Rs with IP3R subtypes are poorly understood. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH IP3-evoked Ca(2+) release from permeabilized DT40 cells stably expressing single subtypes of mammalian IP3R was measured using a(More)
