Summary of "Orai1 and Stim1 Mediate the Majority of Store-Operated Calcium Entry in Multiple Myeloma and Have Strong Implications for Adverse Prognosis."

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell neoplasm which constitutes about 10% of all hematologic malignancies. Despite the development and application of novel agents, MM still undergoes an aggressive and incurable course in the vast majority of patients. Ca2+ is one of the critical regulators of cell migration. Ca2+ influx is essential for the migration of various types of cells including tumor cells. However, the role of store-operated calcium entry (SOC) channels, the only Ca2+ channels of non-excitable cells, has not yet been reported in MM cell survival.

Role of STIM1/ORAI1-mediated store-operated Ca entry in skeletal muscle physiology and disease.

Store-operated Ca entry (SOCE) is a Ca entry mechanism activated by depletion of intracellular Ca stores. In skeletal muscle, SOCE is mediated by an interaction between stromal-interacting molecule-1 ...

Structural features of STIM and Orai underlying store-operated calcium entry.

Store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) through Orai channels is triggered by receptor-stimulated depletion of Ca from the ER. Orai1 is unique in terms of its activation mechanism, biophysical properties,...

Calcium Imaging of Store-Operated Calcium (Ca) Entry (SOCE) in HEK293 Cells Using Fura-2.

The store-operated calcium (Ca) entry (SOCE) pathway is an essential Ca signaling pathway in non-excitable cells that serve many physiological functions. SOCE is mediated through the plasma membrane (...

Inhibition of Lithium Sensitive Orai1/ STIM1 Expression and Store Operated Ca2+ Entry in Chorea-Acanthocytosis Neurons by NF-κB Inhibitor Wogonin.

The neurodegenerative disease Chorea-Acanthocytosis (ChAc) is caused by loss-of-function-mutations of the chorein-encoding gene VPS13A. In ChAc neurons transcript levels and protein abundance of Ca2+ ...

Store-operated calcium entry in disease: Beyond STIM/Orai expression levels.

Precise intracellular calcium signaling is crucial to numerous cellular functions. In non-excitable cells, store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) is a key step in the generation of intracellular calcium ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized calcium channels that localize to the ENDOPLAMSIC RETICULUM and PLASMA MEMBRANE. They contain the pore subunit ORAI1 PROTEIN which is activated by STROMAL INTERACTION MOLECULES upon intracellular calcium depletion.

The pore-forming subunit of calcium release activated calcium channels. It is activated by STROMAL INTERACTION MOLECULE 1 upon intracellular calcium depletion.

A stromal interaction molecule that functions in the regulation of calcium influx following depletion of intracellular calcium in the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM. It translocates to the plasma membrane upon calcium depletion where it activates the CALCIUM RELEASE ACTIVATED CALCIUM CHANNEL ORAI1.

A family of intracellular calcium-sensing proteins found predominately in NEURONS and PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They contain EF HAND MOTIFS and undergo conformational changes upon calcium-binding. Neuronal calcium-sensor proteins interact with other regulatory proteins to mediate physiological responses to a change in intracellular calcium concentration.

A family of structurally related neurotoxic peptides from mollusk venom that inhibit voltage-activated entry of calcium into the presynaptic membrane. They selectively inhibit N-, P-, and Q-type calcium channels.
