VGF is a propeptide of 617 amino acids expressed throughout the central and the peripheral nervous system. VGF and peptides derived from its processing have been found in dense core vesicles and are released from neuronal and neuroendocrine cells via the regulated secretory pathway. Among VGF-derived neuropeptides, TLQP-21 (VGF(556-576)) has raised a huge interest and is one of most studied. TLQP-21 is a multifunctional neuropeptide involved in the control of several physiological functions, potentially including energy homeostasis, pain modulation, stress responsiveness and reproduction...

The inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor (IP3R) is an IP3-gated ion channel that releases calcium ions (Ca(2+)) from the endoplasmic reticulum. The IP3-binding sites in the large cytosolic domain are distant from the Ca(2+) conducting pore, and the allosteric mechanism of how IP3 opens the Ca(2+) channel remains elusive. Here, we identify a long-range gating mechanism uncovered by channel mutagenesis and X-ray crystallography of the large cytosolic domain of mouse type 1 IP3R in the absence and presence of IP3 Analyses of two distinct space group crystals uncovered an IP3-dependent global translocation of the curvature α-helical domain interfacing with the cytosolic and channel domains...

Pulsed infrared (IR) laser energy has been shown to modulate neurological activity through both stimulation and inhibition of action potentials. While the mechanism(s) behind this phenomenon is (are) not completely understood, certain hypotheses suggest that the rise in temperature from IR exposure could activate temperature- or pressure-sensitive ion channels or create pores in the cellular outer membrane, allowing an influx of typically plasma-membrane-impermeant ions. Studies using fluorescent intensity-based calcium ion ([Formula: see text]) sensitive dyes show changes in [Formula: see text] levels after various IR stimulation parameters, which suggests that [Formula: see text] may originate from the external solution...

Our previous study demonstrated that tentacle extract (TE) from the jellyfish Cyanea capillata (C. capillata) could cause a weak relaxation response mediated by nitric oxide (NO) using isolated aorta rings. However, the intracellular mechanisms of TE-induced vasodilation remain unclear. Thus, this study was conducted to examine the role of TE on Akt/eNOS/NO and Ca(2+) signaling pathways in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Our results showed that TE induced dose- and time-dependent increases of eNOS activity and NO production...

Several studies have implicated estrogen and the estrogen receptor (ER) in the pathogenesis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); however, the mechanism underlying this effect remains elusive. In the present study, we demonstrated that estrogen (17β-estradiol, or E2)-induced activation of the G protein-coupled receptor 30 (GPR30) triggered Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum, increased the mitochondrial Ca(2+) concentration, and thus induced prostate epithelial cell (PEC) apoptosis. Both E2 and the GPR30-specific agonist G1 induced a transient intracellular Ca(2+) release in PECs via the phospholipase C (PLC)-inositol 1, 4, 5-triphosphate (IP3) pathway, and this was abolished by treatment with the GPR30 antagonist G15...

Gastric cancer is the most common type of tumor in developing countries and the fourth most frequently diagnosed cancer worldwide. Here, we demonstrated the apoptotic effects of GL-V9 on several human gastric cancer cells and selected MGC-803 cells to uncover the underlying mechanism. GL-V9 elevated Bax/Bcl-2 ratio, abated mitochondrial membrane potential and triggered the onset of apoptotic execution in MGC-803 cells. Our research revealed that CHOP silencing could not inhibit apoptosis, neither could it block Ca(2+) release, suggesting that GL-V9-induced apoptosis was independent of CHOP...

Platelet adhesion, activation and aggregation are essential for primary haemostasis, but are also critically involved in the development of acute arterial thrombotic occlusion. Stimulation of the collagen receptor glyocoprotein VI (GPVI) leads to PLCγ-dependent IP3 production with subsequent platelet activation, due to increased intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)]i). Although it has been described that tricyclic antidepressants potentially impair platelet activation, nothing is hitherto known about potential effects of the tricyclic antidepressant doxepin on platelet Ca(2+) signaling and thrombus formation...

We recently demonstrated a critical role for two-pore channel type 2 (TPC2)-mediated Ca(2+) release during the differentiation of slow (skeletal) muscle cells (SMC) in intact zebrafish embryos, via the introduction of a translational-blocking morpholino antisense oligonucleotide (MO). Here, we extend our study and demonstrate that knockdown of TPC2 with a non-overlapping splice-blocking MO, knockout of TPC2 (via the generation of a tpcn2(dhkz1a) mutant line of zebrafish using CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing), or the pharmacological inhibition of TPC2 action with bafilomycin A1 or trans-ned-19, also lead to a significant attenuation of SMC differentiation, characterized by a disruption of SMC myofibrillogenesis and gross morphological changes in the trunk musculature...

Peroxynitrite is an endothelium-independent vasodilator that induces relaxation via membrane hyperpolarization. The activation of IP3 receptors triggers the opening of potassium channels and hyperpolarization. Previously we found that relaxation to peroxynitrite was maintained during the development of atherosclerosis due to changes in the expression of calcium-regulatory proteins. In this study we investigated: (1) the mechanism of peroxynitrite-induced relaxation in the mouse aorta, (2) the effect of atherosclerosis on relaxation to peroxynitrite and other vasodilators, and (3) the effect of atherosclerosis on the expression and function of the IP3 receptor...

PURPOSE: Systemic hypertension is a risk factor for age-related neovascular retinal diseases. The major condition that induces hypertension is the intake of dietary salt (NaCl) resulting in increased extracellular osmolarity. High extracellular NaCl was has been shown to induce angiogenic factor production in RPE cells, in part via the transcriptional activity of nuclear factor of activated T cell 5 (NFAT5). Here, we determined the signaling pathways that mediate the osmotic expression of the NFAT5 gene in RPE cells...

IRBIT [inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R) binding protein released with inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)] is a multifunctional protein that regulates several target molecules such as ion channels, transporters, polyadenylation complex, and kinases. Through its interaction with multiple targets, IRBIT contributes to calcium signaling, electrolyte transport, mRNA processing, cell cycle, and neuronal function. However, the regulatory mechanism of IRBIT binding to particular targets is poorly understood...

Acidosis has been known to cause "Ca(2+) transients", however, the mechanism is still uncertain. Here, we demonstrated that multiple H(+) sensors, such as ASICs, TRPV1 and proton-sensing G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are involved in extracellular acidification-induced intracellular calcium ([Ca(2+)]i) elevation. By using calcium imaging measures, we observed that both ASIC and TRPV1 channels inhibitors suppressed the [Ca(2+)]i elevation induced by extracellular acidosis in cultured rat cardiac myocytes...

The impact of nanomaterials on immune cells is gaining attention but is not well documented. Here, we report a novel stimulating effect of carboxylated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (c-MWCNTs) on the migration of macrophages and uncover the underlying mechanisms, especially the upstream signaling, using a series of techniques including transwell migration assay, patch clamp, ELISA and confocal microscopy. c-MWCNTs dramatically stimulated the migration of RAW264.7 macrophages when endocytosed, and this effect was abolished by inhibiting phospholipase C (PLC) with U-73122, antagonizing the IP3 receptor with 2-APB, and blocking calcium release-activated calcium (CRAC) channels with SK&F96365...

Tachykinin 1 (TAC1) is known to have diverse functions in mammals but similar information is scarce in lower vertebrates including fish species. Using grass carp as a model, the pituitary actions, receptor specificity and post-receptor signaling of TAC1 gene products, namely substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA), were examined. As a first step, TAC1 encoding carp SP and NKA as well as tachykinin receptors NK1R and NK2R were cloned in carp pituitary. Expression studies revealed that the newly cloned receptors were functional and with pharmacological properties similar to mammalian counterparts...

The chemokine CXCL12 or stromal cell-derived factor 1/SDF-1 attracts hematopoietic progenitor cells and mature leukocytes through the G protein-coupled CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4). In addition, it interacts with atypical chemokine receptor 3 (ACKR3 or CXCR7) and glycosaminoglycans. CXCL12 activity is regulated through posttranslational cleavage by CD26/dipeptidyl peptidase 4 that removes two NH2-terminal amino acids. CD26-truncated CXCL12 does not induce calcium signaling or chemotaxis of mononuclear cells...

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is caused by the disturbance of ER homeostasis and leads to the activation of the unfolded protein response (UPR), which alleviates stress at an early stage and triggers apoptosis if homeostasis fails over a prolonged timeframe. Here, we report that reticulocalbin 1 (RCN1), a member of the CREC family, is transactivated by nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) during ER stress and inhibits ER stress-induced apoptosis. The depletion of RCN1 increases the UPR during drug-induced ER stress by activating PRKR-like ER kinase-CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-homologous protein (PERK-CHOP) signaling, thus inducing apoptosis...

Successful completion of animal development is fundamentally reliant on nutritional cues. Adaptations for surviving nutritional loss are coordinated in part by neural circuits. As neuropeptides secreted by neuroendocrine (NE) cells critically modulate neural circuits, we investigated NE cell function during development under nutrient stress. Starved Drosophila larvae exhibited reduced pupariation, if either insulin signaling or IP3/Ca(2+) signaling, were down-regulated in NE cells. Moreover, an IP3R (Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor) loss-of-function mutant displayed reduced protein synthesis, which was rescued by over-expression of either InR (insulin receptor) or IP3R in NE cells of the mutant, suggesting that the two signaling pathways may be functionally compensatory...

The β2 adrenergic receptor (β2AR) increases intracellular Ca(2+) in a variety of cell types. By combining pharmacological and genetic manipulations, we reveal a novel mechanism through which the β2AR promotes Ca(2+) mobilization (pEC50 = 7.32 ± 0.10) in nonexcitable human embryonic kidney (HEK)293S cells. Downregulation of Gs with sustained cholera toxin pretreatment and the use of Gs-null HEK293 (∆Gs-HEK293) cells generated using the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat-associated protein-9 nuclease (CRISPR/Cas9) system, combined with pharmacological modulation of cAMP formation, revealed a Gs-dependent but cAMP-independent increase in intracellular Ca(2+) following β2AR stimulation...

The purpose of this review is to summarize our knowledge and understanding of the physiological importance and the mechanisms underlying flow-activated proximal tubule transport. Since the earliest micropuncture studies of mammalian proximal tubule, it has been recognized that tubular flow is an important regulator of sodium, potassium, and acid-base transport in the kidney. Increased fluid flow stimulates Na(+) and HCO3(-) absorption in the proximal tubule via stimulation of Na/H-exchanger isoform 3 (NHE3) and H(+)-ATPase...

Previous work revealed that intracellular Ca(2+) signals and the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptors (IP3R) are essential to increase autophagic flux in response to mTOR inhibition, induced by either nutrient starvation or rapamycin treatment. Here, we investigated whether autophagy induced by resveratrol, a polyphenolic phytochemical reported to trigger autophagy in a non-canonical way, also requires IP3Rs and Ca(2+) signaling. Resveratrol augmented autophagic flux in a time-dependent manner in HeLa cells...
