Previously, we reported that emptying of intracellular Ca(2+) pools with endoplasmatic Ca(2+)-ATP-ase inhibitor thapsigargin leads to the Na(+) influx in human lymphocytes (M. Tepel et al., 1994, J. Biol. Chem. 269, 26239-26242). In the present study we examined the mechanism underlying the thapsigargin-induced Na(+) entry. We found that the thapsigargin… CONTINUE READING
