Calcium signal transduction is a central mechanism by which plants sense and respond to endogenous and environmental stimuli. Cytosolic Ca2+ elevation is achieved via two cellular pathways, Ca2+ influx through Ca2+ channels in the plasma membrane and Ca2+ release from intracellular Ca2+ stores. Because of the significance of Ca2+ channels in cellular signaling, interaction with the environment and developmental processes in plants, a great deal of effort has been invested in recent years with… 
Calcium Signals from the Vacuole
TLDR
Ca2+ pumps in addition to establishing long-term Ca2+ homeostasis can shape cytosolic [Ca2-] transients by limiting their amplitude and duration, and may thus affect Ca2- signaling.
Calcium Homeostasis : Role of CAXs Transporters in Plant Signaling
TLDR
The functional aspect of CAX protein family in calcium homeostasis and stress mediated signaling in plants is elaborating and could be agriculturally important to increase the calcium content in edible part of plant and sequester heavy metals from polluted soil.
Calcium transport across plant membranes: mechanisms and functions.
TLDR
Key Ca2+ -mediated reactions have now been associated with the activities of specific subunits from these families, including cyclic nucleotide-gated channels, ionotropic glutamate receptors, two-pore channel 1 (TPC1), annexins and several types of mechanosensitive channels.
Regulation of Cyclic Nucleotide-Gated Channels and Plant Calcium Signaling
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CNGC12 function is both positively and negatively regulated by CaM-binding to multiple, distinct sites at the cytosolic termini of the channel, suggesting that CaM is required for both channel function and feedback inhibition.
Characterisation of Root Plasma Membrane Ca 2+ -Permeable Cation Channels: Techniques and Basic Concepts
TLDR
This chapter summarises data on physiological techniques and basic concepts for investigation of Ca2+-permeable cation channels in plant root cells, focusing on patch-clamp technique, ion-selective vibration microelectrodes and Ca2-aequorin luminometry.
Update on Genetic Identities of Plant Calcium Channels Plant Calcium-Permeable Channels 1
TLDR
The electrophysiological approach has seen a relatively small band of laboratories overcome the technical barriers presented by plant cells to reveal distribution and regulatory properties of plasma membrane and endomembrane channels.
Mechanisms of cytosolic calcium elevation in plants: the role of ion channels, calcium extrusion systems and NADPH oxidase-mediated 'ROS-Ca2+ Hub'.
TLDR
The ROS-Ca2+ hub contributes to physiological reactions controlled by ROS and Ca2+, demonstrating synergism and unity of Ca2+ and ROS signalling mechanisms.
Annexin-Mediated Calcium Signalling in Plants
TLDR
Evidence now suggests that members of the plant annexin family function as unconventional calcium-permeable channels, with roles in development and stress signalling, and the prospect of annexins playing roles in calcium signalling events in symbiosis and immunity are considered.
Intracellular localization and physiological function of a rice Ca2+-permeable channel OsTPC1
TLDR
Intracellular localization and functions of the plant TPC family is discussed and it is revealed that the majority of OsTPC1-GFP fusion protein was targeted to the VM in tobacco BY-2 cells.

The vacuolar Ca2+-activated channel TPC1 regulates germination and stomatal movement
TLDR
A tpc1 knockout mutant lacks functional slow vacuolar channel activity and is defective in both abscisic acid-induced repression of germination and in the response of stomata to extracellular calcium, demonstrating a critical role of intracellular Ca2+-release channels in the physiological processes of plants.
Vacuolar calcium channels.
TLDR
A critical update of existing experimental evidence for vacuolar Ca2+ channels is presented and interesting insights are provided into the physiological function of the TPC1/SV channel.

TLDR
Evidence is reviewed which indicates that Ca2+ channel, Ca2-ATPase andCa2+ exchanger isoforms can indeed modulate specific Ca2+.
Calcium Signals: The Lead Currency of Plant Information Processing
TLDR
Despite impressive progress in understanding of the processing of Ca2+ signals during the past years, the elucidation of the exact mechanistic principles that underlie the specific recognition and conversion of the cellularCa2+ currency into defined changes in protein–protein interaction, protein phosphorylation, and gene expression and thereby establish the specificity in stimulus response coupling remain to be explored.

An overview of the nutritional requirements of different plants for Ca is provided, and how this impacts on natural flora and the Ca content of crops is reviewed.

It is demonstrated that Mca1 plays a crucial role in a Ca2+-permeable SA channel system that leads to mechanosensing in Arabidopsis, and is a starting point for a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms of mechanotransduction in plants.

TLDR
Activation of Ca2+-permeable channels in the plasma membrane of Arabidopsis guard cells by hydrogen peroxide indicates that ABA-induced H2O2 production and the H 2O 2-activated Ca2-activated channels are important mechanisms for A BA-induced stomatal closing.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that plant annexins create Ca2+-permeable transport pathways, regulate [Ca2+]cyt, and may function as peroxidases in vitro.
