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… Expand
An introduction to the calcium transport elements in plants
Abstract Calcium (Ca2+) homeostasis in the plant cells is regulated by a number of transport elements such as exchangers, pumps and channels. Exchangers and pumps usually mediate Ca2+ efflux whileExpand
Ca2+ channels and Ca2+ signals involved in abiotic stress responses in plant cells: recent advances
TLDR
This review summarizes recent advances in knowledge of many types of Ca2+ channels and Ca2-permeable channels involved in abiotic stress resistance and responses in plant cells. Expand
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. Expand
Calcium Homeostasis : Role of CAXs Transporters in Plant Signaling
Calcium is an essential macronutrient as well as an ubiquitous second messenger, playing a pivotal role in plant growth and development. The neutral cytosolic pH, acidic apoplastic and vacuolar pH isExpand
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. Expand
Regulation of Cyclic Nucleotide-Gated Channels and Plant Calcium Signaling
Plants must coordinate developmental processes and responses to environmental stimuli via signaling at the cellular level. Ca serves a common second messenger in many signal transduction pathways,Expand

TLDR
The ROS-Ca2+ hub contributes to physiological reactions controlled by ROS and Ca2+, demonstrating synergism and unity of Ca2+ and ROS signalling mechanisms. Expand
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. Expand
