Abstract

In the neurosecretory cell line PC12 the cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration, [Ca2+]i, and membrane potential were affected by both external ATP and the nonapeptide bradykinin, BK. The latter caused a rapid and large release of Ca2+ from intracellular stores (Ca2+ redistribution) and, in the presence of external Ca2+, a long lasting, but moderate Ca2+ influx, which was insensitive to dihydropyridine blockers. On the contrary, ATP evoked a [Ca2+]i rise which rapidly inactivated. At least three different mechanisms accounted for the ATP-induced increase in [Ca2+]i: less than 20% of the total response was due to intracellular Ca2+ redistribution, consistent with a small increase in inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate level; the rest (over 80%) was equally accounted for by ATP-activated cation channels and voltage-gated Ca2+ channels. ATP and BK (the latter after K+ channel blockade) caused plasma membrane depolarization. With both agonists the inward current was carried by both Na+ and Ca2+, although the BK-activated current appeared to be more selective for Ca2+. Channels triggered by ATP and BK differed not only in their cation selectivity, but also in modulation by both [Ca2+]i and drugs such as the phorbol ester phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate and the new antagonist of ligand-activated Ca2+ influx, SK&F 96365.
