Abstract

Nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) serves as the ideal trigger of spatio-temporally complex intracellular Ca(2+) signals. However, the identity of the intracellular Ca(2+) store(s) recruited by NAADP, which may include either the endolysosomal (EL) or the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) pools, is still elusive. Here, we show that the Ca(2+) response to NAADP was suppressed by interfering with either EL or ER Ca(2+) sequestration. The measurement of EL and ER Ca(2+) levels by using selectively targeted aequorin unveiled that the preventing ER Ca(2+) storage also affected ER Ca(2+) loading and vice versa. This indicates that a functional Ca(2+)-mediated cross-talk exists at the EL-ER interface and exerts profound implications for the study of NAADP-induced Ca(2+) signals. Extreme caution is warranted when dissecting NAADP targets by pharmacologically inhibiting EL and/or the ER Ca(2+) pools. Moreover, Ca(2+) transfer between these compartments might be essential to regulate vital Ca(2+)-dependent processes in both organelles.
