In many cells, activation of receptors coupled to PIP2 turnover results in Ca2+ release from the intracellular stores accompanied by Ca2+ influx across the PM. It is not well established yet whether Ca2+ influx is activated by IP3 or by an unknown signal generated upon Ca2+ store depletion. We report here a single-channel study of low-conductance(More)
 In the present work, we characterized the receptor properties and the conductive features of the inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate (IP3)-activated Ca2+ channels present in excised plasma-membrane patches obtained from mouse macrophages and A431 cells. We found that the receptor properties of the channels tested were similar to those of the IP3 receptor (IP3R)(More)
