Orai1 and TRPC1 Proteins Co-localize with CaV1.2 Channels to Form a Signal Complex in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2016)
Voltage-dependent CaV1.2 L-type Ca2 channels (LTCC) are the main route for calcium entry in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). Several studies have also determined the relevant role of store-operated Ca2 channels ...
TRPC6 channels are required for proliferation, migration and invasion of breast cancer cell lines by modulation of Orai1 and Orai3 surface exposure
(MDPI AC, 2018-09-14)
Transient receptor potential channels convey signaling information from a number of stimuli to a wide variety of cellular functions, mainly by inducing changes in cytosolic Ca2+ concentration. Different members of the TRPC, ...
Urocortin-2 Prevents Dysregulation of Ca2+ Homeostasis and Improves Early Cardiac Remodeling After Ischemia and Reperfusion
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2018-07-03)
Aims: Urocortin-2 (Ucn-2) is a potent cardioprotector against Ischemia and Reperfusion (I/R) injuries. However, little is known about its role in the regulation of intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) under I/R. Here, ...
Podoplanin Gene Disruption in Mice Promotes in vivo Neural Progenitor Cells Proliferation, Selectively Impairs Dentate Gyrus Synaptic Depression and Induces Anxiety-Like Behaviors.
Podoplanin (Pdpn), a brain-tumor-related glycoprotein identified in humans and animals, is endogenously expressed in several organs critical for life support such as kidney, lung, heart and brain. In the brain, Pdpn has ...
Urocortin-1 Mediated Cardioprotection Involves XIAP and CD40-Ligand Recovery Role of EPAC2 and ERK12
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Urocortin-1 (Ucn-1) is an endogenous peptide that protects heart from ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injuries. Ucn-1 is known to prevent cardiac cell death, but its role in the transcription of specific genes related to ...
Adenylyl Cyclase Type 8 Overexpression Impairs Phosphorylation-Dependent Orai1 Inactivation and Promotes Migration in MDA-MB-231 Breast Cancer Cells.
Orai1 plays a major role in store-operated Ca 2+ entry (SOCE) in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells. This channel is inactivated via different mechanisms, including protein kinase C (PKC) and protein kinase A ...
TRPC Channels in the SOCE Scenario
Transient receptor potential (TRP) proteins form non-selective Ca2+ permeable channels that contribute to the modulation of a number of physiological functions in a variety of cell types. Since the identification of TRP ...
TRPC and TRPV Channels’ Role in Vascular Remodeling and Disease
Transient receptor potentials (TRPs) are non-selective cation channels that are widely expressed in vascular beds. They contribute to the Ca2+ influx evoked by a wide spectrum of chemical and physical stimuli, both in ...
STIM and Orai1 Variants in Store-Operated Calcium Entry
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2016-01-13)
Store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) is an ubiquitous mechanism for Ca2+ entry in eukaryotic cells. This route for Ca2+ influx is regulated by the filling state of the intracellular Ca2+ stores communicated to the plasma ...
EFHB is a Novel Cytosolic Ca2+ Sensor That Modulates STIM1-SARAF Interaction
(S. Karger AG, 2018-11-28)
Background/aims: STIM1 and Orai1 are the key components of store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE). Among the proteins involved in the regulation of SOCE, SARAF prevents spontaneous activation of SOCE and modulates STIM1 ...
