Abstract Store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) is a cell signaling pathway essential for immune and muscle function controlled by dynamic interactions between Ca2+-sensing STIM proteins on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Ca2+-permeable ORAI channels on the plasma membrane (PM). STIM-ORAI interactions occur at membrane contact sites (MCS), evolutionarily conserved cellular structures characterized by the close apposition (10-20 nm) between the ER and target membranes that facilitate the exchange of lipids by non-vesicular transport mechanisms. STIM-ORAI interactions were considered to be restricted to ER-PM MCS, but recent evidence indicates that productive interactions take place between ER-bound STIM1 and Ca2+ channels located in intracellular organelles. Interactions between the ER and endosomes or lysosomes regulate the lipid homeostasis of these organelles and the propagation of Ca2+ signals initiated by the release of Ca2+ from acidic stores. Intracellular MCS also regulate the efficiency of phagocytosis, a fundamental cellular process essential for immunity and tissue homeostasis, by ensuring the coordinated opening of Ca2+ channels on phagocytic vacuoles and of Ca2+ release channels on juxtaposed ER stores. In this chapter, we review the current knowledge on the molecular composition and architecture of membrane contact sites that sustain Ca2+ signals at the plasma membrane and in intracellular organelles.
