Abstract

1. The turnover rate of inositol(1,4,5)trisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5)P3) in noradrenaline-stimulated adult rat left atria was calculated from changes in specific activity and was found to equal 110 ct/min per mg tissue. In contrast, the isomers of inositol mono- and bisphosphates accumulated at a rate of 508 ct/min per mg. 2. Neomycin, which inhibits release of Ins(1,4,5)P3, inhibited the accumulation of inositol phosphates in noradrenaline-stimulated isolated neonatal cardiomyocytes but did not inhibit accumulation in left atria. 3. These data demonstrate that most of the inositol phosphates which accumulate in adult rat left atria do not derive from Ins(1,4,5)P3. 4. These data are best explaine..
