Although placental transfer of maternal calcium (Ca2+) is a crucial process for fetal development, the biochemical mechanisms are not completely elucidated. Especially, mechanisms of syncytiotrophoblast Ca2+ extrusion into fetal circulation remain to be established. In the current study we have investigated the characteristics of Ca2+ efflux in syncytiotrophoblast‐like structure originating from the differentiation of cultured trophoblasts isolated from human term placenta. Time‐courses of Ca2…

Na+, K+-ATPase and Ca2+-ATPase activities in basal and microvillous syncytiotrophoblast membranes from preeclamptic human term placenta

The findings suggest that the reduction of Ca2+- and Na+, K+-ATPase activities during preeclampsia could be at least partially due to an increased level of lipid peroxidation of the syncytiotrophoblast plasma membranes.

Calcium transport genes are differently regulated in maternal and fetal placenta in the knockout mice of calbindin‐D9k and ‐D28k

Calbindin‐D9k (CaBP‐9k) and ‐D28k (CaBP‐28k) are cytosolic proteins with EF‐hand motifs that have a high affinity for calcium ions. Many types of calcium channels and intracellular calcium binding

Physiology of epithelial Ca2+ and Mg2+ transport.

The processes of epithelial Ca2+ and Mg2+ transport, the molecular mechanisms involved, and the various forms of regulation are reviewed.

Expression and regulation of sodium/calcium exchangers, NCX and NCKX, in reproductive tissues: do they play a critical role in calcium transport for reproduction and development?

Evidence to date suggests that NCKX3 and NCX1 may be regulated in a tissue-specific manner, and the molecular mechanism involved in the regulation of these proteins for reproductive functions in various tissues is focused on.

Changes in calcium channel proteins according to magnesium sulfate administration in placentas from pregnancies with pre-eclampsia or fetal growth restriction

PMCA expression was influenced by gestational age at delivery, and SERCA-2 expression was increased in the presence of PE and antepartal MgSO4 administration, indicating that anteparta Mgso4 administration has a greater influence on SER CA-2 than PMCA.



ATP-Dependent Ca2+ Transport Is Up-Regulated during Third Trimester in Human Syncytiotrophoblast Basal Membranes

The results show that PMCA in the fetal-facing plasma membrane of the human syncytiotrophoblast is markedly activated toward the end of pregnancy, and suggest that these changes are critical in supplying the rapidly growing fetus with sufficient Ca2+ for bone mineralization.

Characterization of calcium transport by basal plasma membranes from human placental syncytiotrophoblast

No Na+ /Ca2+ exchange process could be demonstrated and the Lineweaver‐Burk plots of Ca2+ uptake in the absence and in the presence of 1 mM Mg2+ suggest a noncompetitive type of inhibition.

Ca(2+)-activated ATPase of the mouse chorioallantoic placenta: developmental expression, characterization and cytohistochemical localization.

Results suggest that the Ca(2+)-ATPase may be a functional component of transplacental calcium transport during mouse embryonic development.

Role of alternative splicing in generating isoform diversity among plasma membrane calcium pumps.

The identification of mice carrying PMCA mutations that lead to diseases such as hearing loss and ataxia, as well as the corresponding phenotypes of genetically engineered PMCA "knockout" mice further support the concept of specific, nonredundant roles for each Ca( 2+) pump isoform in cellular Ca(2+) regulation.

Expression of the Na-Ca exchanger in diverse tissues: a study using the cloned human cardiac Na-Ca exchanger.

It is concluded that the cardiac form of the Na-Ca exchanger is completely functional when the cDNA is expressed in mammalian cell lines, and, furthermore, this "cardiac" form is naturally expressed in all human and rat tissues tested (but at varying levels).

Molecular cloning and functional expression of the cardiac sarcolemmal Na(+)-Ca2+ exchanger

Hydropathy analysis suggests that the Na(+)-Ca2+ exchanger of the cardiac sarcolemma can rapidly transport Ca2+ during excitation-contraction coupling and has multiple transmembrane helices, and a small region of the sequence is similar to that of the Na- and K-dependent adenosine triphosphatase.

Sodium/calcium exchange: its physiological implications.

In cardiac myocytes, and probably other cell types, the exchanger serves a housekeeping role by maintaining a low intracellular Ca2+ concentration; its possible role in cardiac excitation-contraction coupling is controversial.
