Calcium is essential for ATP-induced steroidogenesis in bovine adrenocortical fasciculata cells.


The effect of extracellular ATP on steroidogenesis in primary cultured bovine adrenocortical fasciculata cells was investigated. I observed that in the presence of extracellular Ca2+, ATP caused a dose-dependent elevation of intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) and induced steroidogenesis concentration- and time-dependently. However, in the absence of extracellular… (More)
