Mechanically gated ion channels are involved in processes of volume regulation and calcium signaling in living cells. However, functional contribution of stretch-activated cation channels (SACs) into volume-dependent Ca2+ signaling remains unclear [1, 2]. Calcium-permeable gadolinium-blocking SACs have been previously characterized in human myeloid leukemia K562 cells [3, 4]. Here, changes in intracellular free ionized Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+i]) in K562 cells were monitored in response to reduced bath osmolarity using Fura-2 imaging. Cell swelling induced by decrease of extracellular osmolality resulted in the elevation of [Ca2+J. Ca2+ entry could be blocked by external application of Gd3+ ions thus confirming that SACs in plasma membrane mediate swelling-induced Ca2+ influx in leukemia K562 cells. In single channel studies, functional impact of membrane cholesterol and actin cyto-skeleton on mechanosensitive channel activity in leukemia cells has been analysed [5, 6]. We found that cholesterol depletion-induced suppression of stretch-activated channels was mediated via actin rearrangement. In cell-attached patch clamp experiments on breast cancer MCF7 cells and transformed fibroblasts 3T3B-SV40 we observed typical SAC activity followed by transient activation of K+ channels (8−10 pS). Importantly, K+ currents displayed no
direct mechanosensitivity. Our results indicate that Ca2±dependent K+ channels could be activated by Ca2+ influx via colocalized SACs in membrane patch. The observed effect represents the functional coupling between SACs and K+ channels in plasma membrane. In sum, the data imply that SAC activation underlies putative global and local calcium signa-
ling mechanisms involved in volume regulation in mammalian cells.
