The thapsigargin-evoked increase in [Ca2+]i involves an InsP3-dependent Ca2+ release process in pancreatic acinar cells


In pancreatic acinar cells, as in many other cell types, the tumour promoter thapsigargin (TG) evokes a significant increase of intracellular free Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i). The increases of [Ca2+]i evoked by TG was associated with significant changes of plasma membrane Ca2+ permeability, with [Ca2+]i values following changes in extracellular [Ca2+]. Plasma membrane… (More)
