Mathematical modelling of stimulus-secretion coupling in the pancreatic B-cell. II. Calcium-stimulated calcium release


, : Mathematical modelling of stimulus-secretion coupling in the pancreatic B-cell. II. Calcium-stimulated calcium release. Computer Programs in Biomedicine 19(2-3): 119-126

An attempt was made to simulate in a mathematical model one of the two major effects of glucose upon 45Ca fractional outflow rate from prelabelled pancreatic islets, namely the increase in effluent radioactivity which is currently ascribed to the displacement of 45Ca from intracellular sites, as resulting from a facilitated influx of unlabelled 40Ca into the islet cells. The occurrence of such a rise in effluent radioactivity and its suppression in the absence of extracellular Ca2+ could only be simulated if the release of Ca by the vacuolar system was assumed to be stimulated by a rise in the cytosolic Ca concentration. It is proposed therefore that, in islets like in muscle, a process of Ca-stimulated Ca release may participate in the regulation of intracellular Ca distribution.
