Millisecond studies of calcium-dependent exocytosis in pituitary melanotrophs: comparison of the photolabile calcium chelators nitrophenyl-EGTA and DM-nitrophen.

Abstract

DM-nitrophen (DMN) is a photolabile calcium chelator that has been used extensively to study calcium-triggered exocytosis. Nitrophenyl-EGTA (NPE) is a recently synthesized photolabile calcium chelator that, unlike DMN, selectively binds calcium over magnesium. Here, we compare NPE and DMN for their effectiveness in raising cytosolic calcium ([Ca]i) to… (More)
