The involvement of extracellular free Ca2+ in histamine release was investigated in rat peritoneal mast cells. Incubation of non-antigenized cells in a media with high extracellular potassium did not increase histamine release. Secretion induced by A23187 and compound 48/80 in the presence of Ca2+ requires metabolic energy. In the absence of external free Ca2+ (2.5 microM) histamine release induced by A23187 is reduced but not abolished. Secretion induced by compound 48/80 is independent of extracellular Ca2+. These results lead us to suggest that mast cell plasma membranes probably lack voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and that external Ca2+ may not be an absolute requisite for histamine secretion.
