Regulation of the number of alpha-bungarotoxin binding sites in cultured chick myotubes by a 1,4 dihydropyridine calcium channel antagonist

, : Regulation of the number of alpha-bungarotoxin binding sites in cultured chick myotubes by a 1,4 dihydropyridine calcium channel antagonist. Journal of Neuroscience Research 19(3): 321-325

Calcium has been suggested as the second messenger link between skeletal muscle activity and AChR gene expression and synthesis. We have compared the concentrations of the Ca2+ channel antagonists D600 and nisoldipine needed both to block Ca2+ uptake into cultured myotubes and to increase AChR expression. The good correspondence between these two measurements and the use of the highly specific Ca2+ channel antagonist nisoldipine strengthens the hypothesis that AChR expression is regulated by levels of intracellular Ca2+.
