The past 5 years has witnessed an advance in our understanding of alpha1G (Cav3.1), alpha1H (Cav3.2), and alpha11 (Car3.3), the pore-forming subunits of T-type or low-voltage-activated calcium channels (LVAs). LVAs differ in their localization and molecular, biophysical, and biochemical properties, but all conduct a transient calcium current in a variety of cells. T-type currents mediate a number of physiological functions in developing and mature cells, and are implicated in neural and… CONTINUE READING
