Liver inositol, 1,4,5-trisphosphate-binding sites are the Ca2(+)-mobilizing receptors.


Ins(1,4,5)P3 is the intracellular messenger that in many cells mediates the effects of Ca2(+)-mobilizing receptors on intracellular Ca2+ stores. An Ins(1,4,5)P3 receptor from cerebellum has been purified and functionally reconstituted, but the relationship between this protein and the high-affinity Ins(1,4,5)P3-binding sites of peripheral tissues is unclear… (More)
