The development of new techniques for measuring intracellular free Mg2+ during the 1980s has provided investigators with the tools needed to produce new insights into the regulation of cellular magnesium. Within the limits of this technology, it appears that all mammalian cells maintain free cytosolic Mg2+ levels within the fairly narrow range of 0.25–1 mM. While transport mechanisms and sequestration within cellular organelles will contribute to this regulation, it is binding of Mg2+ to an as… Expand
Release of Ca2+ and Mg2+ from yeast mitochondria is stimulated by increased ionic strength
TLDR
The efflux of Ca2+ and Mg2+ from yeast mitochondria was characterized and release was activated by increased ionic strength, likely an important mechanism in the regulation of mitochondrial matrix space divalent cation concentrations. Expand
Influence of magnesium sulfate on HCO3/Cl transmembrane exchange rate in human erythrocytes.
TLDR
Using scanning flow cytometry, for the first time, a significant increase of HCO3(-)/Cl(-) transmembrane exchange rate of human erythrocytes in the presence of MgSO4 in blood is observed. Expand
Quantification of Mg2+ extrusion and cytosolic Mg2+-buffering in Xenopus oocytes.
TLDR
Xenopus oocytes possess highly efficient mechanisms to maintain their intracellular Mg(2+) concentration, and can be described by a buffer equivalent with a concentration of 9.8mM and an apparent dissociation constant, K(d-app), of 0.6mM. Expand
Physiology of epithelial Ca2+ and Mg2+ transport.
TLDR
The processes of epithelial Ca2+ and Mg2+ transport, the molecular mechanisms involved, and the various forms of regulation are reviewed. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the activity of Mg(2+) within the cell is a central regulator of normal cell growth, and the loss of its membrane-mediated control can account for the neoplastic phenotype. Expand
Essential role for TRPM6 in epithelial magnesium transport and body magnesium homeostasis
TLDR
This review summarizes recent data that has emerged from molecular genetic, biochemical and electrophysiological studies on these fascinating two new proteins and their involvement in epithelial magnesium transport. Expand
Regulation of Respiration by Cellular Key Parameters: Energy Demand, ADP, and Mg 2+
In non-photosynthetic tissues most of cell’s demand for ATP is met by mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation. Surprisingly, however, although the mechanisms involved in ATP synthesis are now wellExpand
Effect of diuretics on renal tubular transport of calcium and magnesium.
TLDR
The effects of diuretics on renal Ca2+ and Mg2+ handling are reviewed in the context of the present understanding of basal molecular mechanisms of Ca2+, and their effect on divalent cation transport is reviewed. Expand
Contribution of the Mnr2 protein to magnesium homeostasis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
This work is the first description of a transporter or ion channel that regulates Mg homeostasis by controlling access to an intracellular Mg store. Expand
Regulation of Alr1 Mg Transporter Activity by Intracellular Magnesium
TLDR
It is concluded that variation in AlR1 protein accumulation or location does not make a substantial contribution to its regulation by Mg supply, suggesting Alr1 activity is directly regulated via as yet unknown mechanisms. Expand

TLDR
If one needs to accurately know Mgi in a papillary muscle or some other tissue which is readily impaled then ion-selective microelectrodes may be the method of choice. Expand
Intracellular free magnesium and its regulation, studied in isolated ferret ventricular muscle with ion‐selective microelectrodes
TLDR
Results in isolated ferret papillary muscles are not consistent with a Na(+)‐Mg2+ exchanger as being the main outward transport mechanism for Mg2- in this tissue. Expand
Practical considerations for using mag-fura-2 to measure cytosolic free magnesium.
TLDR
Observations are presented for the purpose of providing guidelines regarding the appropriate use of mag-fura-2 and on factors influencing the interpretation of resulting data. Expand
Mg2+ buffering in cultured chick ventricular myocytes: quantitation and modulation by Ca2+.
TLDR
The Mg2+ buffering of ventricular myocytes appears to be comprised of at least two components: 1) a Ca(2+)-insensitive adenine nucleotide pool and 2) aCa( 2+)-sensitive nonadenineucleotide pool. Expand
Measurement of intracellular magnesium in a vascular smooth muscle cell line using a fluorescent probe.
TLDR
Using one such probe, mag-fura-2, basal intracellular magnesium concentrations in the A7r5 rat vascular smooth muscle cell line are estimated, unaffected by numerous pharmacological manipulations, including agonist stimulation and depolarisation. Expand
Brief Reviews: Magnesium in Heart Muscle
TLDR
There are compelling reasons for reexamining the role of Mg in heart muscle at this time, and work with subcellular model systems indicates that Mg participates in many of the most vital oxidative, synthetic, and transport processes of the myocardial cell. Expand
Magnesium buffering in intact human red blood cells measured using the ionophore A23187.
TLDR
The magnesium buffering curve for oxygenated, inosine‐fed human red blood cells is adequately described and it is suggested that the contribution of 2,3‐DPG to the low affinity site involves each phosphate group acting as an independent binding site for magnesium. Expand

It is now generally accepted that the intracellular ionized magnesium concentration ([Mg2+]i) in muscle cells is around 1 mmol l−1; in heart muscle this means that from the total some 90‐95% is boundExpand

The previously developed chelator O-aminophenol-N,N,O-triacetic acid (APTRA) has been modified to yield a fluorescent analogue which can be utilized as an intracellular probe for ionized Mg2+. Expand

TLDR
The basal [Mg2+]i of isolated cardiomyocytes is considerably below the M g2+ electrochemical equilibrium allowing passive Mg2- influx, and the influx pathway for MG2+ is inhibited by verapamil and appears to be independent of Ca2+ as assessed by fura-2. Expand
