Abstract

The mechanisms of secretory transport through the Golgi apparatus remain an issue of debate. The precise functional importance of calcium ions (Ca(2+)) for intra-Golgi transport has also been poorly studied. Here, using different approaches to measure free Ca(2+) concentrations in the cell cytosol ([Ca(2+)](cyt)) and inside the lumen of the Golgi apparatus ([Ca(2+)](GA)), we have revealed transient increases in [Ca(2+)](cyt) during the late phase of intra-Golgi transport that are concomitant with a decline in the maximal [Ca(2+)](GA) restoration ability. Thus, this redistribution of Ca(2+) from the Golgi apparatus into the cytosol during the movement of cargo through the Golgi apparatus appears to have a role in intra-Golgi transport, and mainly in the late Ca(2+)-dependent phase of SNARE-regulated fusion of Golgi compartments.
