Abstract

To investigate the role of ryanodine receptors in glomerular arterioles, experiments were performed using an isolated perfused hydronephrotic kidney model. In the first series of studies, BAYK-8644 (300 nM), a calcium agonist, constricted afferent (19.6 ± 0.6 to 17.6 ± 0.5 μm, n = 6, P < 0.01) but not efferent arterioles. Furthermore, BAYK-8644 elicited afferent arteriolar oscillatory movements. Subsequent administration of nifedipine (1 μM) inhibited both afferent arteriolar oscillation and constriction by BAYK-8644 (to 19.4 ± 0.5 μm). In the second group, although BAYK-8644 constricted afferent arterioles treated with 1 μM of thapsigargin (19.7 ± 0.6 to 16.8 ± 0.6 μm, n = 5, P < 0.05), it failed to induce rhythmic contraction. Removal of extracellular calcium with EGTA (2 mM) reversed BAYK-8644-induced afferent arteriolar constriction (to 20.0 ± 0.5 μm). In the third series of investigations, ryanodine (10 μM) but not 2-aminoethoxyphenyl borate (100 μM) abolished afferent arteriolar vasomotion by BAYK-8644. In the fourth series of experiments, in the presence of caffeine (1 mM), the stronger activation of voltage-dependent calcium channels by higher potassium media resulted in greater afferent arteriolar constriction and faster oscillation. Our results indicate that L-type calcium channels are rich in preglomerular but not postglomerular microvessels. Furthermore, the present findings suggest that either prolonged calcium influx through voltage-dependent calcium channels (BAYK-8644) or sensitized ryanodine receptors (caffeine) is required to trigger periodic calcium release through ryanodine receptors in afferent arterioles.
