To study the development of the calcium release mechanism, we examined the temporal and spatial expression of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R) during the oogenesis and meiotic maturation of Xenopus laevis. Observation of a series of fixed samples by immunofluorescence microscopy revealed a relocalization of Xenopus IP3R (XIP3R)-positive structures during meiotic maturation. We visualized the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) using ER-sensitive dye, DiI, by observation under confocal laser scanning microscopy. Time-lapse visualization of the living oocytes revealed that while the ER of immature fully grown oocytes underwent relatively little movement, the ER of maturing oocytes and mature eggs moved rapidly. A possible role for the increase of ER mobility in the dynamic redistribution of XIP3R during oocyte maturation is also discussed.
