Intracellular release of Ca2+ by microinjection of Ca2+ was analyzed by measuring the luminescence of aequorin loaded in eggs of the medaka (Oryzias latipes). Microinjection of Ca2+ into the cortical cytoplasm induced propagative waves of cytoplasmic Ca2+ release and exocytosis of cortical alveoli initiated at the injection point. The Ca2+ wave was initiated with a time lag after some was sequestered at the region of the microinjection. Microinjection of Mg2+ or Mn2+ failed to trigger Ca2… CONTINUE READING
