2,2'-Dithiodipyridine (2,2'-DTDP), a reactive disulphide that mobilizes Ca2+ from ryanodine-sensitive Ca2+ stores in muscle, induced a biphasic increase in cytoplasmic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in pancreatic beta-cells loaded with fura 2. This increase consisted of an early transient followed by a second, slower, rise. The [Ca2+]i transient was dependent on extracellular Ca2+ and disappeared on treatment with nimodipine. The reactive disulphide caused plasma membrane depolarization, as… CONTINUE READING
