Ca2+ ions passing through a single or a cluster of Ca2+-permeable channels create microscopic, short-lived Ca2+ gradients that constitute the building blocks of cellular Ca2+ signaling. Over the last decade, imaging microdomain Ca2+ in muscle cells has unveiled the exquisite spatial and temporal architecture of intracellular Ca2+ dynamics and has reshaped(More)
Ca(2+) release events underlie global Ca(2+) signaling yet they are regulated by local, subcellular signaling features. Here we review the latest developments of different elementary Ca(2+) release features that include Ca(2+) sparks, Ca(2+) blinks (the corresponding depletion of Ca(2+) in the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) during a spark) and the recently(More)
