Mathematical modelling of calcium signalling taking into account mechanical effects

  author={Katerina Kaouri and Philip K. Maini and Stephen Jonathan Chapman},
  journal={arXiv: Dynamical Systems},
Most of the calcium in the body is stored in bone. The rest is stored elsewhere, and calcium signalling is one of the most important mechanisms of information propagation in the body. Yet, many questions remain open. In this work, we initially consider the mathematical model proposed in Atri et al. \cite{ atri1993single}. Omitting diffusion, the model is a system of two nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) for the calcium concentration, and the fraction of $IP_3$ receptors that have… 
2D finite-element analysis of calcium distribution in oocytes
A finite-element model using coaxial circular sector elements has been developed to study two-dimensional calcium distribution in oocytes and it is observed that there is significant variation in calcium profiles due to the effect of Na+/Ca2+ exchanger, Na/K+ pump, RyR calcium channel, SERCA pump, and buffers.
Three-dimensional finite element model to study calcium distribution in oocytes
A three-dimensional finite element model is proposed to study the spatio-temporal calcium distribution in oocyte and the effect of source geometry, RyR calcium channel, SERCA pump and buffers on cytosolic calcium concentration distribution in Oocyte is studied.


A Deterministic Model Predicts the Properties of Stochastic Calcium Oscillations in Airway Smooth Muscle Cells
Calcium dynamics can be accurately modeled using simplified models, and to obtain qualitative predictions of how oscillation frequency depends on parameters it is sufficient to use a deterministic model.
Mathematical modelling of calcium wave propagation in mammalian airway epithelium: evidence for regenerative ATP release
It is shown that for a Ca2+ wave to propagate large distances, a significant fraction of the intracellular ATP pool would be required to be released, which suggests that an additional mechanism is important in Ca2- wave propagation, such as regenerative release of ATP from cells downstream of the stimulated cell.
Models of Calcium Signalling
This book presents the general modelling theory as well as a large number of specific case examples to show how mathematical modelling can interact with experimental approaches, in an interdisciplinary and multifaceted approach to the study of an important physiological control mechanism.
Intercellular spiral waves of calcium.
In the calcium wave model, it is shown numerically that the spiral period is first a decreasing, then an increasing, function of the intercellular permeability, and hypothesise that this is because the curvature of the spiral core is unimportant at low permeability.

This work reviews some of the milestones of intracellular calcium modeling with a special emphasis on calcium-induced calcium release (CICR) through inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate and ryanodine receptors and highlights key features of CICR and how they are represented in models.
A model for the propagation of intercellular calcium waves.
It is suggested that Ca(2+)-independent regenerative production of IP3 might be necessary for the propagation of intercellular Ca2+ waves.

The ability of Ins1,4,5P3 to mobilize intracellular calcium is a significant feature of many of the proposed models that are used to explain oscillatory activity, and this cytosolic calcium oscillator is particularly sensitive to those stimuli that hydrolyze phosphoinositides to give diacylglycerol and inositol 1, 4,5‐trisphosphate.
