...Jiaoyue Long; Guoning Liao; Yinna Wang; Dale D. Tang ABSTRACT The tyrosine kinase c-Abl participates in the regulation of various cellular functions including cell proliferation, adhesion, migration, smooth muscle contraction and cancer progression. However, knowledge regarding transcriptional...

... Ca 2+ release often begins at a single site, then regeneratively propagates through the cell as a Ca 2+ wave. The Ca 2+ wave consistently begins at the same site on successive activations. Here, we address the mechanisms that determine the Ca 2+ wave initiation site in intestinal smooth muscle cells...

...D. MacMillan; C. Kennedy; J. G. McCarron Summary Adenosine 5′-triphosphate (ATP) mediates a variety of biological functions following nerve-evoked release, via activation of either G-protein-coupled P2Y- or ligand-gated P2X receptors. In smooth muscle, ATP, acting via P2Y receptors (P2YR), may act...

...Brant E. Isakson Inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate [Ins(1,4,5) P 3 ] originating in the vascular smooth-muscle cells (VSMCs) has been shown to modulate the Ca 2+ stores in endothelial cells (ECs). However, the reverse is not found, suggesting that Ins(1,4,5) P 3 movement might be unidirectional across...

...John G. McCarron; Susan Chalmers; Thomas C. Muir Smooth muscle responds to activation of the inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate receptor [Ins(1,4,5) P 3 R] with a graded concentration-dependent (`quantal') Ca 2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) store. Graded release seems incompatible both...

... m was examined during Ca 2+ oscillations in smooth muscle cells. In single, voltage-clamped smooth muscle cells, inhibition of mitochondrial Ca 2+ accumulation inhibited inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate [Ins(1,4,5) P 3 ]-evoked Ca 2+ release and prolonged the time required for restoration of [Ca 2...

...Nicolas Fritz; Jean-Luc Morel; Loice H. Jeyakumar; Sidney Fleischer; Paul D. Allen; Jean Mironneau; Nathalie Macrez Ryanodine receptor subtype 1 (RyR1) has been primarily characterized in skeletal muscle but several studies have revealed its expression in smooth muscle. Here, we used Ryr1 -null...

... that potentiates Ca 2+ release from the IP 3 R in smooth muscle. The presence of FKBP12 was confirmed in colonic myocytes and co-immunoprecipitated with the IP 3 R. In aortic smooth muscle, however, although present, FKBP12 did not co-immunoprecipitate with IP 3 R. In voltage-clamped single colonic myocytes...

... the hypothesis that MARCKS is a regulator of the spatial distribution of CaM within the cytoplasm of differentiated smooth-muscle cells. In overlay assays with portal-vein homogenates, CaM binds predominantly to the MARCKS-containing band. MARCKS is abundant in portal-vein smooth muscle (∼16 μM) in comparison...

... Acetylcholine Smooth muscle Ca 2+ signalling is the most `universal and versatile' signal transduction mechanism, mediating the intracellular effects of environmental signals into specific cellular responses ( Berridge et al., 2000 ). The specificity of the Ca 2+ signal depends on Ca 2+ channel...
