Using microsomal membrane vesicles derived from sheep cerebellum, we measured the rate of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3)-dependent 45Ca2+ efflux from 45Ca(2+)-loaded compartments during rapid perfusion with a medium containing InsP3 and various concentrations of free 40Ca2+ on the cytosolic side (pH 7.1, 5 mM Mg2+, in the absence of ATP at 20 degrees(More)
Using sheep cerebellum microsomes previously loaded with 45Ca2+ or 90Sr2+, we measured the dependence of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3)-induced efflux of these ions on Ca2+ or Sr2+ on the cytosolic side. At a low InsP3 concentration, Ca2+ in the submicromolar range only poorly activated 45Ca2+ or 90Sr2+ efflux, and higher Ca2+ concentrations were(More)
Using sheep cerebellum microsomes adsorbed on a filter, we measured the kinetics of [3H]inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3) binding and dissociation on the subsecond time scale during rapid perfusion of the filter with [3H]InsP3-containing or InsP3-free media. At 20 degrees C and pH 7.1, in a cytosol-like medium containing MgCl2, the half-time for InsP3(More)
