Regulated secretion is a fundamental cellular process that serves diverse functions in neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, and numerous other aspects of animal physiology. In response to environmental or biological cues, cells release contents of secretory granules into an extracellular medium to communicate with or impact neighboring or distant cells through paracrine or endocrine signaling. To investigate mechanisms governing stimulus-secretion coupling, to better understand how cells maintain or regulate their secretory activity, and to characterize secretion defects in human diseases, probes for tracking various exocytotic events at the cellular or sub-cellular level have been developed over the years...

In virtually all cells, store-operated Ca(2+) entry signals are vital in controlling a spectrum of functions. The signals are mediated by STIM proteins in the ER and Orai channels in the PM which undergo a dynamic coupling process within discrete ER-PM junctional regions. This coupling is initiated by depletion of ER stored Ca(2+) triggering STIM proteins to undergo an intricate activation process. Thereafter, STIM proteins become trapped in the ER-PM junctions where they tether and gate PM Orai Ca(2+) channels...

Intracellular calcium release is essential for regulating almost all cellular functions. Specific spatio-temporal patterns of cytosolic calcium elevations are critical determinants of cell fate in response to pro-apoptotic cellular stressors. As the apoptotic program can take hours or days, measurement of long-term calcium dynamics are essential for understanding the mechanistic role of calcium in apoptotic cell death. Due to the technical limitations of using calcium-sensitive dyes to measure cytosolic calcium little is known about long-term calcium dynamics in living cells after treatment with apoptosis-inducing drugs...

One of the largest challenges in cell biology is to map the lipid composition of the membranes of various organelles and define the exact location of processes that control the synthesis and distribution of lipids between cellular compartments. The critical role of phosphoinositides, low-abundant lipids with rapid metabolism and exceptional regulatory importance in the control of almost all aspects of cellular functions created the need for tools to visualize their localizations and dynamics at the single cell level...

Store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) is a ubiquitous Ca(2+) entry pathway that is activated in response to depletion of ER-Ca(2+) stores and critically controls the regulation of physiological functions in miscellaneous cell types. The transient receptor potential canonical 1 (TRPC1) is the first member of the TRPC channel subfamily to be identified as a molecular component of SOCE. While TRPC1 has been shown to contribute to SOCE and regulate various functions in many cells, none of the reported TRPC1-mediated currents resembled ICRAC, the highly Ca(2+)-selective store-dependent current first identified in lymphocytes and mast cells...

Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) is a conserved mechanism of Ca(2+) influx that regulates Ca(2+) signaling in many cell types. SOCE is activated by depletion of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) stores in response to physiological agonist stimulation. After it was first postulated by J.W. Putney Jr. in 1986, SOCE has been described in a large number of non-excitable cell types including secretory cells of different exocrine glands. Here we discuss the mechanisms by which SOCE controls salt and fluid secretion in exocrine glands, with a special focus on eccrine sweat glands...

Two-photon laser scanning calcium imaging has emerged as a useful method for the exploration of neural function and structure at the cellular and subcellular level in vivo. The applications range from imaging of subcellular compartments such as dendrites, spines and axonal boutons up to the functional analysis of large neuronal or glial populations. However, the depth penetration is often limited to a few hundred micrometers, corresponding, for example, to the upper cortical layers of the mouse brain. Light scattering and aberrations originating from refractive index inhomogeneties of the tissue are the reasons for these limitations...

REVIEW
Anant B Parekh
CRAC channels are a major route for Ca(2+) influx in eukaryotic cells. The channels show prominent Ca(2+)-dependent inactivation through two spatially and temporally distinct mechanisms: fast inactivation, which develops over milliseconds and is triggered by Ca(2+) near the mouth of the channel and slow inactivation, which arises over tens of seconds and requires a rise in global cytosolic Ca(2+). Slow inactivation is controlled physiologically by Ca(2+) uptake into mitochondria through the MCU. Site-directed mutagenesis studies on STIM1 and Orai1 have led to new molecular insight into how fast inactivation occurs...

Cells, irrespective of whether they are from multicellular or single-celled organisms, must communicate with the external environment through dynamic regulation of their internal metabolism, which are critical for their survival. Fluorescent and bioluminescent proteins, and related genetic engineering technologies, have provided new opportunities to investigate the molecular dynamics of cells and their internal compartments, with high spatio-temporal resolution. In this review article, since there is a sufficient number of previous reviews summarizing the history of their development and the techniques behind them, here we will focus on molecular features or technologies that have the potential to further open novel investigations of cellular and subcellular dynamics...

Lysosomes and lysosome-related organelles are emerging as intracellular Ca(2+) stores and play important roles in a variety of membrane trafficking processes, including endocytosis, exocytosis, phagocytosis and autophagy. Impairment of lysosomal Ca(2+) homeostasis and membrane trafficking has been implicated in many human diseases such as lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs), neurodegeneration, myopathy and cancer. Lysosomal membrane proteins, in particular ion channels, are crucial for lysosomal Ca(2+) signaling...

In 1986, J.W. Putney presented a model for capacitative calcium (Ca(2+)) entry conveying that depletion of endoplasmic reticulum stored Ca(2+) levels leads to activation of plasma membrane Ca(2+) channels which mediate influx of Ca(2+) from the extracellular space into cells. Presently, the biomolecules regulating this process, more widely known as store operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) which is vital to myriad signaling pathways in health and disease, are known and the focus of intense structural biology research aiming to illuminate the atomic mechanisms of function...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic multidrug resistant pathogen causing severe chronic infections. Our previous studies showed that elevated calcium (Ca(2+)) enhances production of several virulence factors and plant infectivity of the pathogen. Here we show that Ca(2+) increases resistance of P. aeruginosa PAO1 to tobramycin, antibiotic commonly used to treat Pseudomonas infections. LC-MS/MS-based comparative analysis of the membrane proteomes of P aeruginosa grown at elevated versus not added Ca(2+), determined that the abundances of two RND (resistance-nodulation-cell division) efflux pumps, MexAB-OprM and MexVW-OprM, were increased in the presence of elevated Ca(2+)...

Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is an important second messenger produced via G-protein-coupled receptor- or receptor tyrosine kinase-mediated pathways. IP3 levels induce Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) via IP3 receptor (IP3R) located in the ER membrane. The resultant spatiotemporal pattern of Ca(2+) signals regulates diverse cellular functions, including fertilization, gene expression, synaptic plasticity, and cell death. Therefore, monitoring and manipulating IP3 levels is important to elucidate not only the functions of IP3-mediated pathways but also the encoding mechanism of IP3R as a converter of intracellular signals from IP3 to Ca(2+)...

Ca(2+) and cAMP are ubiquitous intracellular messengers and interactions between them are commonplace. Here the effects of cAMP on inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs) are briefly reviewed. All three subtypes of IP3R are phosphorylated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). This potentiates IP3-evoked Ca(2+) release through IP3R1 and IP3R2, but probably has little effect on IP3R3. In addition, cAMP can directly sensitize all three IP3R subtypes to IP3. The high concentrations of cAMP required for this PKA-independent modulation of IP3Rs is delivered to them within signalling junctions that include type 6 adenylyl cyclase and IP3R2...

The Ca(2+)-selective tetrameric Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 6 (TRPV6) channel is an inwardly rectifying ion channel. The constitutive current endures Ca(2+)-induced inactivation as a result of the activation of phospholipase C followed depletion of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, and calmodulin binding. Replacing a glycine residue within the cytosolic S4-S5 linker of the human TRPV6 protein, glycine 516, which is conserved in all TRP channel proteins, by a serine residue forces the channels into an open conformation thereby enhancing constitutive Ca(2+) entry and preventing inactivation...

The L-type Ca(2+) channel or dihydropyridine receptor (DHPR) in vertebrate skeletal muscle is responsible for sensing sarcolemmal depolarizations and transducing this signal to the sarcoplasmic Ca(2+) release channel RyR1 via conformational coupling to initiate muscle contraction. During this excitation-contraction (EC) coupling process there is a slow Ca(2+) current through the mammalian DHPR which is fully missing in euteleost fishes. In contrast to ancestral evolutionary stages where skeletal muscle EC coupling is still depended on Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+)-release (CICR), it is possible that the DHPR Ca(2+) conductivity during mammalian (conformational) EC coupling was retained as an evolutionary remnant (vestigiality)...

In the present study, we have used a genetic mouse model that lacks cyclophilin D (CypD KO) to assess the cardioprotective effect of mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) inhibition on Ca(2+) waves and Ca(2+) alternans at the single cell level, and cardiac arrhythmias in whole-heart preparations. The protonophore carbonyl cyanide p-(trifluoromethoxy) phenylhydrazone (FCCP) caused mitochondrial membrane potential depolarization to the same extent in cardiomyocytes from both WT and CypD KO mice, however, cardiomyocytes from CypD KO mice exhibited significantly less mPTP opening than cardiomyocytes from WT mice (p<0...
