BACKGROUND Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3R1, 2, and 3) are intracellular Ca2+ release channels that regulate various vital processes. Although the ryanodine receptor type 2, another type of intracellular Ca2+ release channel, has been shown to play a role in embryonic cardiomyocytes, the functions of the IP3Rs in cardiogenesis remain unclear.(More)
A human leukemic cell line KU 812 was recently established and described as a basophilic cell line. In the present study we show that KU 812 and two of its clones are at least bipotent: in addition to a minor component of basophils, the majority of KU 812 cells belongs to the erythroid cell lineage with a significant percentage (about 15%) of mature(More)
