Ca(2+) is a highly versatile intracellular signal that regulates many different cellular processes, and cells have developed mechanisms to have exquisite control over Ca(2+) signaling. Epidermal growth factor (EGF), which fails to mobilize intracellular Ca(2+) when administrated alone, becomes capable of evoking [Ca(2+)](i) increase and exocytosis after bradykinin (BK) stimulation in chromaffin cells. Here, we provide evidence that this sensitization process is coordinated by a macromolecular signaling complex comprised of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor type I (IP(3)R1), cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), EGF receptor (EGFR), and an A-kinase anchoring protein, yotiao. The IP(3)R complex functions as a focal point to promote Ca(2+) release in two ways: (1) it facilitates PKA-dependent phosphorylation of IP(3)R1 in response to BK-induced elevation of cAMP, and (2) it couples the plasmalemmal EGFR with IP(3)R1 at the Ca(2+) store located juxtaposed to the plasma membrane. Our study illustrates how the junctional membrane IP(3)R complex connects different signaling pathways to define the fidelity and specificity of Ca(2+) signaling.
