Oscillations of intracellular Ca2+ provide a novel mechanism for sustained activation of cellular processes. Receptor-activated oscillations are mainly thought to occur through rhythmic IP3-dependent store discharge. However, as shown here in HEK293 cells 1nM orexin-A (Ox-A) acting at OX1 receptors (OX1R) triggered oscillatory Ca2+ responses, requiring external Ca2+. These responses were attenuated by interference with TRPC3 channel (but not TRPC1/4) function using dominant negative constructs, elevated Mg2+ (a blocker of many TRP channels) or inhibition of phospholipase A2. These treatments did not affect Ca2+ oscillations elicited by high concentrations of Ox-A (100nM) in the absence of external Ca2+. OX1R are thus able to activate TRPC(3)-channel-dependent oscillatory responses independently of store discharge.
