The cytoplasmic Ca2+ signal is transferred to the mitochondrial matrix and activates mitochondrial dehydrogenases. The requirement for supramicromolar cytoplasmic [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]i) in perimitochondrial microdomains in this response has been suggested. We studied the correlation between [Ca2+]i, mitochondrial [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]m) and mitochondrial formation of… CONTINUE READING
