On the effect of glucagon on mitochondrial calcium retention in isolated hepatocytes.

Abstract

Exposure of isolated hepatocytes to glucagon for 45 min caused a 2.5-fold increase in the time (Ca2+ retention time) for which mitochondria subsequently isolated from the cells retained a load of exogenous Ca2+ before its spontaneous release. Half maximal effect of glucagon was observed at a concentration of 0.6 nM. An increase in the Ca2+ retention time… (More)
