Abstract

In some cell types, oscillations in the concentration of free intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]) are accompanied by oscillations in the concentration of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate ([IP3]). However, in most cell types it is still an open question as to whether oscillations in [IP3] are necessary for Ca2+ oscillations in vivo, or whether they merely follow passively. Using a wide range of models, we show that the response to an artificially applied pulse Of IN can be used to distinguish between these two cases. Hence, we show that muscarinic receptor-mediated, long-period Ca2+ oscillations in pancreatic acinar cells depend on [IP3] oscillations, whereas short-period Ca2+ oscillations in airway smooth muscle do not.
