Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3)-induced Ca2+ release from intracellular stores displays complex kinetic behavior. While it well established that cytosolic [Ca2+] can modulate release by acting on the InsP3 receptor directly, the role of the filling state of internal Ca2+stores in modulating Ca2+ release remains unclear. Here we have reevaluated this(More)
It is generally assumed that the functional consequences of stimulation with Ca2+ -mobilizing agonists are derived exclusively from the second messenger action of intracellular Ca2+, acting on targets inside the cells. However, during Ca2+ signaling events, Ca2+ moves in and out of the cell, causing changes not only in intracellular Ca2+, but also in local(More)
In the present experiments we have made a new attempt to characterize the ion transport properties of H(+)-secreting cells of the gastric mucosa using electrophysiological techniques. Individual gastric glands of bullfrog fundus mucosa were manually dissected, mounted in holding pipettes and superfused with various test solutions while individual cells were(More)
Following the technical approach described in the preceding publication we have investigated if, and how, stimulation of gastric HCl secretion affects the basolateral ion transport properties of oxyntopeptic cells of Rana catesbeiana stomach. To this end microdissected gastric glands were punctured with conventional or H(+)-sensitive glass microelectrodes(More)
