Calcium (Ca2+) entry in cells is crucial for development and physiology of virtually all cell types. It acts as an intracellular (second) messenger to regulate a diverse array of cellular functions, from cell division and differentiation to cell death. Among candidates for Ca2+ entry in cells are-voltage-dependant Ca2+ channels (VDCCs), transient receptor potential (TRP)-related Ca2+ channels and store-operated Ca2+ (SOC) channels. Plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPases (PMCA) and Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX… CONTINUE READING
