Sigma-1 Receptor Chaperone at the ER-Mitochondrion Interface Mediates the Mitochondrion-ER-Nucleus Signaling for Cellular Survival
The ER-mitochondrion interface serves as an important subcellular entity in the regulation of cellular survival by enhancing the stress-responding signaling between mitochondria, ER, and nucleus.
At the Crossing of ER Stress and MAMs: A Key Role of Sigma-1 Receptor?
The present review will summarize the recent data on the mechanism of action of Sig-1R in regulating Ca2+ exchanges and protein interactions at MAMs and the ER.
Roles of sigma-1 receptors on mitochondrial functions relevant to neurodegenerative diseases
It is proposed that the direct or indirect regulations of the Sig-1R on mitochondrial functions may relate to neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’S disease (HD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
IP3 receptor‐binding partners in cell‐death mechanisms
A multiprotein complex, which involves the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R) on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC) on the outer mitochondrial
The Role of Sigma-1 Receptor, an Intracellular Chaperone in Neurodegenerative Diseases
The sigma-1 receptor (Sig-1R), a well-known ER-chaperone localizes in the MAM, serves for Ca2+-signaling between the ER and mitochondria, involved in ion channel activities and especially important during neuronal differentiation, and acts as central modulator in inter-organelle signaling.
ER-luminal thiol/selenol-mediated regulation of Ca2+ signalling.
This review describes how the variable ER redox conditions govern Ca(2+)flux from the ER and highlights the activating interactions of Ero1α with inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs) or of selenoprotein N (SEPN1) with sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca( 2+)transport ATPase 2 (SERCA2).
Sigma-1 Receptor Promotes Mitochondrial Bioenergetics by Orchestrating ER Ca2+ Leak during Early ER Stress
The role of Sigma-1 Receptor (S1R), an ER chaperone, has in enhancing mitochondrial bioenergetics during early ER stress using human neuroblastoma cell lines is investigated and results show that inducing ER stress with tunicamycin, a known ER stressor, greatly enhances mitochondrial bioenersgetics in a time- and S1R-dependent manner.
Bcl-2 family in inter-organelle modulation of calcium signaling; roles in bioenergetics and cell survival
The role that Bcl-2 family proteins play in facilitating Ca2- signaling and how mitochondrial Ca2+ is relevant in both bioenergetics and apoptosis is clarified and how these insights could be useful in controlling bioener getics in apoptosis-resistant cell lines is explored.


Chaperone-mediated coupling of endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondrial Ca2+ channels
It is demonstrated that VDAC1 is physically linked to the endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-release channel inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R) through the molecular chaperone glucose-regulated protein 75 (grp75) and functional interaction between the channels was shown by the recombinant expression of the ligand-binding domain of the IP3R on the ER or mitochondrial surface.
Bcl-2-mediated alterations in endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ analyzed with an improved genetically encoded fluorescent sensor.
A genetically encoded Ca(2+) indicator is created by redesigning the binding interface of calmodulin and a Calmodulin-binding peptide that provides a significant improvement over all previous methods for monitoring [Ca(2+)](ER) and has been used to directly show that, in MCF-7 breast cancer cells, the antiapoptotic protein B cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) lowers [Ca-2+](ER).
Localization of GRP78 to mitochondria under the unfolded protein response.
The results indicate that, at least under certain circumstances, the ER-resided chaperone GRP78 can be retargeted to mitochondria and thereby may be involved in correlating UPR signalling between these two organelles.

The results suggest that Sig- 1R and associated ligands may play important roles in cells by controlling the function of cytoskeletal proteins and that the Sig-1R/ANK220/IP(3)R-3 complex regulating Ca(2+) signaling may represent a site of action for neurosteroids and cocaine.

The studies during the past several years have revealed that the ER molecular chaperone BiP is a master regulator of ER function, responsible for maintaining the permeability barrier of the ER during protein translocation and contributing to ER calcium stores.
Sigma-1 receptors (sigma(1) binding sites) form raft-like microdomains and target lipid droplets on the endoplasmic reticulum: roles in endoplasmic reticulum lipid compartmentalization and export.
It is found that sigma-1 receptors specifically target lipid storage sites (lipid droplets) on the endoplasmic reticulum by forming a distinct class of lipid microdomains in NG108-15 cells.
The role of Ca2+ in triggering inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor ubiquitination.
The present study uses alphaT3-1 mouse pituitary cells expressing exogenous wild-type or mutant-type-I IP3Rs (IP3R1) to provide several lines of evidence that Ca2+ is also a trigger and concludes that IP3R ubiquitination and degradation are triggered by the concerted action of IP3- and Ca2+.
Mitochondria and Endoplasmic Reticulum: The Lethal Interorganelle Cross-Talk
The present review is concerned with the spatially and temporally coordinated utilization of Bcl-2 family proteins and Ca2+ by the mitochondria and ER to control the membrane permeabilization in the mitochondia and to regulate Ca1+ distribution and the activity of apoptotic proteins in the ER.
Mechanism of Proteasomal Degradation of Inositol Trisphosphate Receptors in CHO-K1 Cells*
The data suggest that both a sustained elevation of IP3 and a minimal content of Ca2+ in the endoplasmic reticulum lumen is required to initiate IP3R degradation.
Biosynthesis of inositol trisphosphate receptors: selective association with the molecular chaperone calnexin.
It is proposed that calnexin is a key chaperone involved in the folding, assembly and oligomerization of newly synthesized IP(3) receptors in the ER.
