Abstract

The effects of ryanoids on calcium sparks and transients were studied in voltage-clamped cut frog muscle fibers with a laser scanning confocal microscope. For each ryanoid employed, several sequential effects were observed, including: a), transient increases in spontaneous spark frequency; b), conversions of sparks to long-lasting steady glows; and c), occasional interruptions of the glows. The ratio of the amplitude of the glow induced by a ryanoid to that of the precursory spark followed the order: ryanodol > ryanodine > C10-Oeq-glycyl-ryanodine > C 10-Oeq-β-alanyl-ryanodol. This sequence of glow amplitudes parallels that of the subconductances induced by these ryanoids in single-channel studies, suggesting that the glows reflect Ca2+ fluxes through semiopen calcium release channels. Ryanoids also abolished depolarization-evoked sparks elicited with small pulses, and transformed the calcium release during depolarization to a uniform nonsparking fluorescence signal. The ratio of this signal, averaged spatially, to that of the control followed the order: ryanodol < ryanodine < C10-O eq-glycyl-ryanodine < C10-Oeq-β-alanyl- ryanodol, implying an inverse relationship with the amplitudes of ryanoid-induced glows. The observation that depolarization-evoked calcium release can occur after ryanoid suppression of calcium sparks suggests the possibility of a new strategic approach for treating skeletal muscle diseases resulting from leaky calcium release channels.
