Genetic disorders associated with defective fluid and electrolyte movement; ion channel and epithelial transport physiology

Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is the largest intracellular Ca 2+ store. On the membrane of the ER, there are calcium release components such as inositol 1, 4, 5 trisphosphate receptor (IP 3 R), and the calcium pumps like SR/ER Ca 2+ ATPases (SERCAs). We injected caged-IP 3 together with the fluorescent Ca 2+ indicator into the oocytes. Upon UV stimulation, activated IP 3 binds to IP 3 R and releases Ca 2+ from the ER into the cytosol. Subsequently the closure of IP 3 R and activation of SERCAs takes the cytosolic Ca 2+ back into the ER stores. We recorded the changes of intracellular Ca 2+ signals by confocal microscopy. The movie shows the different intracellular calcium responses induced by UV-uncaging of caged IP 3 in Xenopus oocytes overexpressing polycystin-2 and the water injected control.
