Abstract: It is still debated whether inositol 1,4, 5-trisphosphate(IP(3))-induced Ca(2+) release is loading-dependent. We now report that stimulation of the IP(3) receptor by luminal Ca(2+) depends on the cytosolic [Ca(2+)] in permeabilized A7r5 cells. The EC(50) and maximal extent of Ca(2+) release were loading-dependent in the presence of 5 mM 1, 2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid: the EC(50) increased 1.9-fold and the maximal release decreased from 88 to 52% when the stores contained 73% less Ca(2+). In the presence of 0.3 microM free Ca(2+), the EC(50) for filled and less filled stores differed, however, only 1.2-fold and the maximal Ca(2+) release was respectively 96 and 87% of the total releasable Ca(2+). At 1 microM free Ca(2+), the difference in EC(50) between filled and less filled stores again became larger (2.2-fold) and the maximal Ca(2+) release decreased from 93 to 87% when the stores contained less Ca(2+).
