Carbachol-stimulated calcium entry in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells: which route?


PMID 1343598

Abstract

M3 muscarinic receptors expressed on SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells are linked to phosphoinositide turnover and rises in [Ca2+]i. The rise in [Ca2+]i is biphasic with the peak phase being due to release from an intracellular Ins(1,4,5)P3-sensitive site and the plateau phase being due to Ca2+ entry across the plasma membrane. Ca2+ entry does not appear to involve voltage sensitive Ca2+ channels, a pertussis toxin sensitive G-protein-operated Ca2+ channel or Ins(1,4,5)P3/Ins(1,3,4,5)P4-operated Ca2+ channel. We suggest that carbachol-stimulated Ca2+ entry in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells occurs via receptor operated Ca2+ channels and through capacitive refilling.
