The thapsigargin-sensitive intracellular Ca2+ pool is more important in plasma membrane Ca2+ entry than the IP3-sensitive intracellular Ca2+ pool in neuronal cell lines

In NG108-15 cells, bradykinin (BK) and thapsigargin (TG) caused transient increases in a cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i), after which [Ca2+]i elevated by TG only declined to a higher, sustained level than an unstimulated level. In PC12 cells, carbachol (CCh) evoked a transient increase in [Ca2+]i followed by a sustained rise of [Ca2+]i, whereas [Ca2+]i elevated by TG almost maintained its higher level. In the absence of extracellular Ca2+, the sustained elevation of [Ca2+]i induced by each drug we used was abolished. In addition, the rise in [Ca2+]i stimulated by TG was less affected after CCh or BK, whereas CCh or BK caused no increase in [Ca2+]i after TG. TG neither increased cellular inositol phosphates nor modified the inositol phosphates format on stimulated by CCh or BK. We conclude that TG may release Ca2+ from both IP3-sensitive and -insensitive intracellular pools and that some kinds of signalling to link the intracellular Ca2+ pools and Ca2+ entry seem to exist in neuronal cells.
