Abstract

Uptake and release of Ca2+ from isolated liver nuclei were studied with fluorescent probes. We show with the help of digital imaging and confocal microscopy that the Ca2+-sensitive fluorescent probe Fura 2 is concentrated in or around the nuclear envelope and that the distribution of Fura 2 fluorescence is similar to that of an endoplasmic reticulum marker. The previously demonstrated ATP-dependent uptake of Ca2+ into isolated nuclei and release of the accumulated Ca2+ by inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) are therefore due to transport of Ca2+ into and out of the nuclear envelope and not the nucleoplasm. Dextrans labeled with fluorescent Ca2+ indicators (calcium-Green 1 and Fura 2) are distributed uniformly in the nucleoplasm and can be used to show that changes in the external Ca2+ concentration produce rapid changes in the nucleoplasmic Ca2+ concentration. Nevertheless, IP3 and cyclic ADP-ribose evoke transient intranuclear Ca2+ elevations. The release from the Ca2+ stores in or around the nuclear envelope appears to be directed into the nucleoplasm from where it can diffuse out through the permeable nuclear pore complexes. © 1995.
