Sequestration is based on a chemiosmotic proton gradient produced by a V-type H+-ATPase. So far, many pieces of information available have not been combined to a comprehensive view on CVC biogenesis and function. One main function now appears as follows. Ca2+-release channels, type inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (InsP3R), may serve for fine-tuning of local cytosolic Ca2+ concentration and mediate numerous membrane-to-membrane interactions within the tubular spongiome meshwork. Such activity is suggested by the occurrence of organelle-specific soluble N-ethylmaleimide sensitive factor attachment protein receptor (SNARE) and Ras-related in brain (Rab) proteins, which may regulate functional requirements. For tubulation, F-Bin-amphiphysin-Rvs (F-BAR) proteins are available. In addition, there is indirect evidence for the occurrence of H+/Ca2+ exchangers (to sequester Ca2+) and mechanosensitive Ca2+-channels (for signaling the filling sate). The periodic activity of the CVC may be regulated by the mechanosensitive Ca2+-channels. Such channels are known to colocalize with and to be functionally supported by stomatins, which were recently detected in the CVC. A Kif18-related kinesin motor protein might control the length of radial arms. Two additional InsP3-related channels and several SNAREs are associated with the pore. De novo organelle biogenesis occurs under epigenetic control during mitotic activity and may involve the assembly of gamma-tubulin, centrin, calmodulin and a never in mitosis A-type (NIMA) kinase - components also engaged in mitotic processes.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:title>The contractile vacuole complex of protists - New cues to function and biogenesis</dcterms:title> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/24319/2/Plattner_243197.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/24319"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-09-11T13:54:33Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
