Store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE), a major mechanism for Ca2+ entry in non-excitable cells, is regulated by the filling state of the intracellular Ca2+ stores. We have previously reported that a de novo conformational coupling between the type II IP3 receptor (IP3RII) and hTRPC1 channel occurs after depletion of the intracellular Ca2+ stores in human platelets, which might be involved in the activation of SOCE in these cells. Here we present for the first time direct evidence for the functional relevance of the coupling between hTRPC1 and IP3RII in SOCE in human platelets. Our data suggest that at least two pathways may contribute to SOCE in these cells. An early component, insensitive to cytochalasin D (Cyt D), is followed by a late component which is sensitive to Cyt D. Introduction of a peptide corresponding to IP3RII(317-334) (IP3BD-peptide(317-334)) in the cells by electrotransjection impairs the coupling between hTRPC1 and IP3RII but not the interaction between hTRPC1 and STIM1 induced by store depletion. Coimmunoprecipitation experiments indicated that endogenously expressed hTRPC1 interacts with the IP3BD-peptide(317-334). Electrotransjection of cells with IP3BD-peptide(317-334), significantly attenuated the late stage of Ca2+ and Mn2+ entry induced by 10 nM thapsigargin (TG) or 20 microM 2,5-di-(tert-butyl)-1,4-hydroquinone (TBHQ), providing evidence for a functional role of the de novo coupling between hTRPC1 and IP3RII in the activation of SOCE in human platelets.
