Cytosolic calcium oscillations:
Among the earliest responses after cellular stimulation is increased in cytosolic calcium concentration. Such calcium increases in individual cells are often in the form of oscillations - periodic increases in cytoslic calcium concentrtion. Oscillation confers two forms of modultion of the calcium signal: amplitude modultion (AM), and frequency modultion (FM), therefore multiple calcium signals could be encoded, to modulate specific cellular functions. Our laboratory investigates in secretory and other cell types the molecular mechanisms of calcium oscillations, such as a role for NCX, ER calcium channels in the pace-making process of calcium oscillations.
Molecular basis of exocytosis:
Secretory cells are pivotal in the body. Secretory cells such as pancreatic acinar cells, pancreatic islet beta cells, anterior pituitary cells, mamary gland acinar cells, after stimulation by neurotransmitters or hormones all have their secretory granules in the cytosol to dock at, and fuse with, the plasma membrane, subsequently to release the granule content into the extracellular space. Our laboratory investigates how after stimulation, secretory cells have their secretory granules dock at, and fuse with plasma membrane, to complete the process of exocytosis and cell secretion, with an emphasis on SNARE and related proteins.
Singlet oxygen as a signaling molecule:
Many chromophores (photon-absorbing groups) in nature could absorb photons of certain wavelength. When such molecules after absorption of photons transfer their photon energy to molecular oxygen, the excited delta singlet oxygen is produced. Since singlet oxygen has very high chemical energy (94 kJ/mole), and a very short lifetime in cellular environment (1μs), it has very limited distance of effective reaction (< 10 nm). Therefore singlet oxygen generated during a Type II photodynamic action could subcellular specifically modulate cellular functions. Our laboratory investigates molecular targets of photodynamic action in alive cells, and the resultant chemical modifications of biologically important signalling macromolecules. We also investigate the molecular basis of singlet oxygen action as an endogenous signalling molecule. The genetically encoded protein photosenstisers (KillerRed, miniSOG) were subcellular organelle specifically or cell type specifically expressed to generate highly spatially defined molecular singlet oxygen. We found that the plasma membrane-localized G protein-coupled receptor cholecystokinin 1 (CCK1) receptor is permanently activated by singlet oxygen (ABSO), we therefore named CCK1 receptor a GPCR-ABSO.
Contact regulation between neighbouring cell types:
To investigate regulation by neutrophil respiratory burst, pancreatic stellate cell activation on pancreatic acinar calcium signalling. We found that neutrophils can quench CCK- and ACh-induced calcium oscillations in rat pancreatic acinar cells. Further, rat pancreatic stellate cells were found to serve as a brake mechanism on pancreatic acinar cell calcium signaling.
Modulation of synaptic transmission by toosendanin:
To examine the cellular and molecular effects of toosendanin on synaptic transmission. We found that toosendanin elicits calcium increases and exocytosis in rat sensory neurons (nodose ganglion neurons).
