Here we describe differences in the formation of the epinephrine-induced Ca2+ transients between parent and Ki-ras- transformed NIH3T3 fibroblasts. These transients proved to be the results of an efflux from both the thapsigargin-sensitive and-insensitive intracellular pools. While the epinephrine-induced detachment of the ras-transformed cells might be due to cytoskeletal and/or cell-matrix alterations.
