GnRH-induced cytosolic calcium oscillations in pituitary gonadotrophs: phase resetting by membrane depolarization.

Abstract

Cultured rat pituitary gonadotrophs under whole-cell voltage clamp conditions respond to the hypothalamic hormone GnRH with synchronized oscillatory changes in both cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) and [Ca2+]i-activated, apamin-sensitive K+ current (IK(Ca)). We found, and report here for the first time, that in GnRH-stimulated cells a brief… (More)
