Response to ADP-Ribose by Activation of TRPM2 in the CRI-G1 Insulinoma Cell Line

Response to ADP-Ribose by Activation of TRPM2 in the CRI-G1 Insulinoma Cell Line The response to intracellular ADP-ribose in the rat CRI-G1 insulinoma cell line was studied using a patch-clamp method. Dialysis of ADP-ribose into cells induced a response in a dose-dependent manner. The reversal potentials in various solutions showed that the ADP-ribose-gated channel was a Ca2+-permeable nonselective cation channel. In inside-out recordings, ADP-ribose and b-NAD induced responses in the same patch. The single-channel current-voltage relationships for ADP-ribose- and b-NAD-induced responses were almost identical, indicating that ADP-ribose and b-NAD activated the same channel. The physiological properties of the ADP-ribose-gated channel are similar to those we reported previously for the cloned transient receptor potential channel TRPM2. Moreover, RT-PCR analysis showed that TRPM2 was abundantly expressed in CRI-G1 cells, suggesting that the ADP-ribose-gated channel represents the native TRPM2 channel in CRI-G1 cells. These results suggest that ADP-ribose can be an endogenous modulator of Ca2+ influx through the TRPM2 channel into CRI-G1 cells. The Journal of Membrane Biology Springer Journals
