Abstract

The radioligand dihydropyridine [methyl-3H]PN 200-110 binds to contracting myotubes in culture derived from chick embryo pectoralis muscle. [methyl-3H]PN 200-110 binds specifically to high-affinity sites, with nonspecific binding only between 15 and 30% of the total binding. A Scatchard plot of the specific binding revealed a single high-affinity binding site with a K(D) (dissociation constant) of 0.5 nM ± 0.2 nM and B(max) (number of binding sites) of 100 fmol/106 nuclei. We employed this sensitive assay to probe the appearance of high-affinity [methyl-3H]PN 200-110 binding sites during myogenesis. The time course of appearance of high-affinity binding sites lags behind that of fusion. Low-calcium media prevented the differentiation of myoblasts and blocked the appearance of high-affinity sites. Chelation of intracellular calcium before or after fusion of myoblasts with the calcium indicator Quin 2 prevented the appearance of dihydropyridine binding sites. These findings are consistent with the view that the expression of dihydropyridine receptors is modulated by the intracellular calcium.
