[Bone and Calcium Research Update 2015. Role of calcium in the regulation of smooth muscle function].

The vascular smooth muscle plays a physiological role in the regulation of the organ blood flow and blood pressure by modulating vascular resistance. The contraction of vascular smooth muscle is regulated by both Ca2+ signal and changes in the sensitivity of the contractile apparatus to Ca2+. The influx of the extracellular Ca2+ and the release of Ca2+ from… CONTINUE READING
