Caveolin-3 (Cav-3) plays a critical role in organizing signaling molecules and ion channels involved in cardiac conduction and metabolism. Mutations in Cav-3 are implicated in cardiac conduction abnormalities and myopathies. Additionally, cardiac-specific overexpression of Cav-3 (Cav-3 OE) is protective against ischemic and hypertensive injury, suggesting a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Dendritic cells (DCs) are antigen-presenting cells linking innate and adaptive immunity. DC maturation and migration are governed by alterations of cytosolic Ca(2+) concentrations ([Ca(2+)](i)). Ca(2+) entry is in part accomplished by store-operated Ca(2+) (SOC) channels consisting of the membrane pore-forming subunit Orai and the ER Ca(2+)(More)
The function of mast cells is modified by the phosphoinositol-3 (PI3)-kinase pathway. The kinase signals partially through the phosphoinositide-dependent kinase PDK1, which on the one hand activates the serum- and glucocorticoid- inducible kinase SGK1 and on the other hand activates protein kinase PKCδ. SGK1 participates in the stimulation of Ca(2+) entry(More)
Insulin and growth factors activate the phosphatidylinositide-3-kinase pathway, leading to stimulation of several kinases including serumand glucocorticoid-inducible kinase isoform SGK3, a transport regulating kinase. Here, we explored the contribution of SGK3 to the regulation of renal tubular phosphate transport. Coexpression of SGK3 and sodium-phosphate(More)
Rapamycin, an inhibitor of the serine/threonine kinase mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), is a widely used immunosuppressive drug. Rapamycin affects the function of dendritic cells (DCs), antigen-presenting cells participating in the initiation of primary immune responses and the establishment of immunological memory. Voltage-gated K(+) (Kv) channels are(More)
Ca(2+) signaling includes store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) following depletion of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) stores. On store depletion, the ER Ca(2+) sensor STIM1 activates Orai1, the pore-forming unit of Ca(2+)-release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channels. Here, we show that Orai1 is regulated by serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase 1 (SGK1), a(More)
