Calcium Ions and Cell Function

    Abstract

    The concentration of free calcium ions (Ca++) in the cytoplasm regulates many aspects of cell function, including muscle contraction and the secretion of mediators, neurotransmitters and hormones. Contraction of airway smooth muscle, secretion of mast cell mediators and mucus, and vagal neurotransmission, all of which may be increased in asthma, are… (More)
