In the past decade there has been a general acceptance of three major changes in our understanding of calcium metabolism: (1) that the calcium ion is pharmacologically one of the most disruptive substances for normal cell functions; (2) that intracellular calcium ion concentrations are carefully regulated at levels of 10 .6 to 10 -7 mol 1-~; and (3) that a surprising variety of cells contain intracellular deposits of minerals that are rich in calcium salts. Looked at in this way, calcium is a… Expand
