Dynamic Assembly of a Membrane Signaling Complex Enables Selective Activation of NFAT by Orai1
Summary NFAT-dependent gene expression is essential for the development and function of the nervous, immune, and cardiovascular systems and kidney, bone, and skeletal muscle [1]. Most NFAT proteinExpand

Mitochondrial calpain system: an overview.
Calpain system is generally known to be comprised of three molecules: two Ca2+-dependent proteases: mu- and m-calpains, and their endogenous inhibitor, calpastatin. While calpains have previouslyExpand

Localization of m-calpain and calpastatin and studies of their association in pulmonary smooth muscle endoplasmic reticulum.
Calpain and calpastatin have been demonstrated to play many physiological roles in a variety of systems. It, therefore, appears important to study their localization and association in differentExpand

mu-Calpain mediated cleavage of the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in isolated mitochondria under A23187 induced Ca2+ stimulation.
Treatment of bovine pulmonary artery smooth muscle mitochondria with the calcium ionophore, A23187 (0.2 microM) stimulates mu-calpain activity and subsequently cleaves Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger (NCX).Expand

Key Role for Store-Operated Ca2+ Channels in Activating Gene Expression in Human Airway Bronchial Epithelial Cells
Ca2+ entry into airway epithelia is important for activation of the NFAT family of transcription factors and expression of genes including epidermal growth factor that help orchestrate localExpand

Mitochondrial Calcium Uniporter MCU Supports Cytoplasmic Ca2+ Oscillations, Store-Operated Ca2+ Entry and Ca2+-Dependent Gene Expression in Response to Receptor Stimulation
Ca2+ flux into mitochondria is an important regulator of cytoplasmic Ca2+ signals, energy production and cell death pathways. Ca2+ uptake can occur through the recently discovered mitochondrialExpand

Spatial Ca2+ profiling: decrypting the universal cytosolic Ca2+ oscillation
Stimulation of cell‐surface receptors that couple to phospholipase C to generate the second messenger inositol trisphosphate often evokes repetitive oscillations in cytosolic Ca2+. SignallingExpand

Calcium signaling phenomena in heart diseases: a perspective
Ca2+ is a major intracellular messenger and nature has evolved multiple mechanisms to regulate free intracellular (Ca2+)i level in situ. The Ca2+ signal inducing contraction in cardiac muscleExpand

Ca2+ Channel Re-localization to Plasma-Membrane Microdomains Strengthens Activation of Ca2+-Dependent Nuclear Gene Expression
Summary In polarized cells or cells with complex geometry, clustering of plasma-membrane (PM) ion channels is an effective mechanism for eliciting spatially restricted signals. However, channelExpand

m-Calpain-mediated cleavage of Na+/Ca2+ exchanger-1 in caveolae vesicles isolated from pulmonary artery smooth muscle
Using m-calpain antibody, we have identified two major bands corresponding to the 80 kDa large and the 28 kDa small subunit of m-calpain in caveolae vesicles isolated from bovine pulmonary arteryExpand
