'Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+) entry' or how the L-type Ca(2+) channel remodels its own signalling pathway in cardiac cells.


The adjustment of Ca(2+) entry in cardiac cells is critical to the generation of the force necessary for the myocardium to meet the physiological needs of the body. In this review, we present the concept that Ca(2+) can promote its own entry through Ca(2+) channels by different mechanisms. We refer to it under the general term of 'Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2… (More)
