The measurement of Ca2+ inflow across the liver cell plasma membrane by using quin2 and studies of the roles of Na+ and extracellular Ca2+ in the mechanism of Ca2+ inflow.

Abstract

1. Rates of Ca2+ inflow across the hepatocyte plasma membrane in the presence of vasopressin were estimated by using quin2. 2. Plots of the rate of Ca2+ inflow as a function of the intracellular quin2 concentration reached a plateau at about 1.7 mM intracellular quin2. Ca2+ inflow was inhibited by 60% in the presence of 400 microM-verapamil. 3. A plot of… (More)
