Characterisation by 19F NMR of fluorine-labelled indicators of cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration (by 5FBAPTA) and pH (by Fquene) is described, together with the techniques used to load the cell suspensions with the indicators for NMR spectroscopy. Useful features of the 19F NMR indicators include direct identification of the intracellular cation bound to the indicators, internal calibration of [Ca]i and pHi from the spectra, and simultaneous measurements of two or more indicators in the same cell suspension. Perturbations of cellular functions by 5FBAPTA and quin 2 are very similar, but vary widely in different cell systems. The [Ca]i and pHi responses of normal and transformed cells to mitogens and growth factors in serum are compared with data from similar experiments using fluorescence indicators. The only major discrepancy in [Ca]i measurements using the two independent assays was observed in Ehrlich ascites tumour cells. These cells have a high intracellular Zn2+ content which substantially quenches the quin 2 fluorescence, but does not affect [Ca]i measurements by 5FBAPTA. The Zn2+ present in the cells is detected as a separate response in the 5FBAPTA spectrum. The time course of the Ca signal in 2H3 cells stimulated by antigen to release histamine by exocytosis has been defined using 5FBAPTA and quin 2. Extension of the 19F NMR technique to [Ca] i and pHi measurements in perfused organs is illustrated in rat heart and responses to pharmacological agents are demonstrated. Developments in prospect to improve sensitivity and to measure [Na]i with a new family of indicators are outlined.
