AbstractCalcium is an important messenger in cells and whose store and diffusion dynamics at the subcellular level remain unclear. By inducing a controlled slow subcellular Ca(2+) release through femtosecond laser irradiation in HeLa cells immersed in different media, cytoplasm is identified to be the major intracellular Ca(2+) store, with the nucleus being the minor store and the extracellular Ca(2+) also contributing to the total cellular Ca(2+) level. Furthermore, Ca(2+) released in either the cytoplasm or nucleus diffuses into the nucleus or cytoplasm, respectively, at different rates and influences the Ca(2+) release in those regions.
