The effect of imperatoxin A (IpTx(a)) on the ryanodine receptor type 3 (RyR3) was studied. IpTx(a) stimulates [(3)H]ryanodine binding to RyR3-containing microsomes, but this effect requires toxin concentrations higher than those required to stimulate RyR1 channels. The effect of IpTx(a) on RyR3 channels was observed at calcium concentrations in the range 0.1 microM to 10 mM. By contrast, RyR2 channels were not significantly affected by IpTx(a) in the same calcium ranges. Single channel current measurements indicated that IpTx(a) induced subconductance state in RyR3 channels that was similar to those observed with RyR1 and RyR2 channels. These results indicate that IpTx(a) is capable of inducing similar subconductance states in all three RyR isoforms, while stimulation of [(3)H]ryanodine binding by this toxin results in isoform-specific responses, with RyR1 being the most sensitive channel, RyR3 displaying an intermediate response and RyR2 the least responsive ones.
