Mitochondrial Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](m)) was monitored in C2C12 skeletal muscle cells stably expressing the Ca(2+)-sensitive photoprotein aequorin targeted to mitochondria. In myotubes, KCl-induced depolarization caused a peak of 3.03 +/- 0.14 micrometer [Ca(2+)](m) followed by an oscillatory second phase (5.1 +/- 0.1 per min). Chelation of extracellular Ca(2+) or blockade of the voltage-operated Ca(2+) channel attenuated both phases of the KCl response. The inhibitor of the… CONTINUE READING
