Summary of "Doxorubicin induces ER calcium release via Src in rat ovarian follicles."

Although doxorubicin has been widely used as an anticancer drug, it has dose-dependent toxic effects on ovarian follicle development and apoptosis, oocyte maturation and hormone secretion. Ca2+ signaling also has vital roles in the same cellular functions of ovarian follicles, indicating a strong link with doxorubicin-induced ovarian toxicity. In the current project, doxorubicin induced Ca2+ alternations in cultured rat ovarian follicles have been explored with the fluorescence resonance energy transfer technology. The results reveal that doxorubicin enhances the cytosolic Ca2+ level smoothly. Further experiments confirm that the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) calcium, but not the extracellular calcium influx, is the main source of intracellular calcium increase. Moreover, Src kinase activation could be the upstream of doxorubicin-induced ER calcium release. Therefore, this project demonstrates that doxorubicin increases the cytosolic Ca2+ mainly by releasing calcium from ER via Src kinase activation in ovarian follicles, which provides deeper understanding of doxorubicin induced ovarian toxicity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complication of OVULATION INDUCTION in infertility treatment. It is graded by the severity of symptoms which include OVARY enlargement, multiple OVARIAN FOLLICLES; OVARIAN CYSTS; ASCITES; and generalized EDEMA. The full-blown syndrome may lead to RENAL FAILURE, respiratory distress, and even DEATH. Increased capillary permeability is caused by the vasoactive substances, such as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS, secreted by the overly-stimulated OVARIES.

A methylpyrrole-carboxylate from RYANIA that disrupts the RYANODINE RECEPTOR CALCIUM RELEASE CHANNEL to modify CALCIUM release from SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM resulting in alteration of MUSCLE CONTRACTION. It was previously used in INSECTICIDES. It is used experimentally in conjunction with THAPSIGARGIN and other inhibitors of CALCIUM ATPASE uptake of calcium into SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM.

An OOCYTE-containing structure in the cortex of the OVARY. The oocyte is enclosed by a layer of GRANULOSA CELLS providing a nourishing microenvironment (FOLLICULAR FLUID). The number and size of follicles vary depending on the age and reproductive state of the female. The growing follicles are divided into five stages: primary, secondary, tertiary, Graafian, and atretic. Follicular growth and steroidogenesis depend on the presence of GONADOTROPINS.

A tetrameric calcium release channel in the SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM membrane of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS, acting oppositely to SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM CALCIUM-TRANSPORTING ATPASES. It is important in skeletal and cardiac excitation-contraction coupling and studied by using RYANODINE. Abnormalities are implicated in CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS and MUSCULAR DISEASES.

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.
