Intracellular Ca(2+) stores in chemoreceptor cells of the rabbit carotid body: significance for chemoreception.


The notion that intracellular Ca(2+) (Ca(i)(2+)) stores play a significant role in the chemoreception process in chemoreceptor cells of the carotid body (CB) appears in the literature in a recurrent manner. However, the structural identity of the Ca(2+) stores and their real significance in the function of chemoreceptor cells are unknown. To assess the… (More)
