NAADP induces Ca2+ oscillations via a two-pool mechanism by priming IP3- and cADPR-sensitive Ca2+ stores.
In sea urchin eggs, Ca2+ mobilization by nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) potently self-inactivates but paradoxically induces long-term Ca2+ oscillations. We investigated whether NAADP-induced Ca2+ oscillations arise from the recruitment of other Ca2+ release pathways. NAADP, inositol trisphosphate (IP3) and cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR) all mobilized Ca2+ from internal stores but only NAADP consistently induced Ca2+ oscillations. NAADP-induced Ca2+ oscillations were partiall...Expand abstract
