Ca2+ influx into excitable cells is a prerequisite for neurotransmitter release and regulated exocytosis. Within the group of ten cloned voltage‐gated Ca2+ channels, the Cav2.3‐containing E‐type Ca2+ channels are involved in various physiological processes, such as neurotransmitter release and exocytosis together with other voltage‐gated Ca2+ channels of the Cav1, Cav2 and Cav3 subfamily. However, E‐type Ca2+ channels also exhibit several subunit‐specific features, most of which still remain… Expand
Involvement of R‐type Ca2+ channels in neurotransmitter release from spinal dorsolateral funiculus terminals synapsing motoneurons
TLDR
The effects of SNX‐482, a selective R channel blocker, on the monosynaptic excitatory postsynaptic potentials evoked in motoneurons by stimulation of dorsolateral funiculus (DLF) terminals in a slice preparation from the adult turtle spinal cord are characterized. Expand
Diversity of presynaptic calcium channels displaying different synaptic properties
TLDR
The present review analyzes the diversity of presynaptic Ca2+ channels displaying different synaptic properties and focuses on an analysis of distribution and function ofpresynaptic voltage-gated Ca 2+ channels, as well as on developmental changes. Expand

How “Pharmacoresistant” is Cav2.3, the Major Component of Voltage-Gated R-type Ca2+ Channels?
TLDR
Although the identification of SNX-482 as a fairly specific inhibitor of Cav2.3 in the nanomolar range has enabled insights into the channels properties, availability of other pharmacologic modulators of Cav 2.3 with different chemical, physical and biological properties are of great importance for future investigations.

Presynaptic Ca2+ channels – integration centers for neuronal signaling pathways
TLDR
A broad overview of molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate Ca2+ channels are provided, and how these cellular signaling pathways are integrated at the level of the channel protein is provided. Expand
Fast, Ca2+-dependent exocytosis at nerve terminals: Shortcomings of SNARE-based models
TLDR
This review considers the pros and cons of the different models of SNARE-mediated membrane fusion and concludes by discussing a novel proposal in which synaptotagmins might directly elicit membrane fusion without the intervention ofSNARE proteins in this final fusion step. Expand
Reciprocal Regulation of Neuronal Calcium Channels by Synaptic Proteins
Voltage-gated Ca2+ channels represent one of the main pathways for Ca2+ entry into nerve terminals where they play a critical role in the control of synaptic exocytosis. It is traditionally believedExpand
Protein Interaction Partners of Cav2.3 R-Type Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels
The Cav2.3 voltage-gated calcium channel represents the most enigmatic of all voltage-gated calcium channels due to its pharmacological inertness and to its mixed characteristics of HVA and LVAExpand
Presynaptic calcium channels: structure, regulators, and blockers.
TLDR
The central and peripheral nervous systems express multiple types of ligand and voltage-gated calcium channels, each with specific physiological roles and pharmacological and electrophysiological properties, which provide insight into potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of pathological conditions that arise from disturbances in calcium channel signaling.

Results show clearly that CaV2.3 subunits underlie a significant fraction of ICa,R in different types of central neurones in wild‐type mice and indicate that Ca V2. Expand
The cytosolic II–III loop of Cav2.3 provides an essential determinant for the phorbol ester‐mediated stimulation of E–type Ca2+ channel activity
TLDR
Receptor independent stimulation of PKC and its interaction with Cav2.3 channels represents an important positive feedback mechanism to decode electrical signals into a variety of cellular functions and is suggested to augmenting Ca2+ influx into the cytosol. Expand
Unified Mechanisms of Ca2+ Regulation across the Ca2+ Channel Family
TLDR
It is reported here that R- and N-type channels undergo Ca(2+)-dependent inactivation, which is mediated by the CaM N-terminal lobe and present only with mild Ca2+ buffering characteristic of many neurons. Expand
Ca2+‐sensitive regulation of E‐type Ca2+ channel activity depends on an arginine‐rich region in the cytosolic II–III loop
TLDR
With Ca2+ as permeant ion, recovery from inactivation was accelerated, compared to the recovery process recorded under conditions where the accumulation of [Ca2+]i was prevented, and in a Ba2+ containing bath solution the Ca2-‐dependent changes of E‐type channel activity could be induced by dialysing the cells with 1 µm free [Ca1+]-i suggesting that an elevation of [ Ca2 +]i is responsible for these effects.

Calcium Channel Types with Distinct Presynaptic Localization Couple Differentially to Transmitter Release in Single Calyx-Type Synapses
TLDR
The results suggest that the Ca2+ influx into the calyx via N- and R-type channels triggers release less effectively than that via P/Q-type because a substantial fraction of the N-and- R- type channels in thecalyx is localized distant from release sites. Expand
Differential Ca2+‐dependence of transmitter release mediated by P/Q‐ and N‐type calcium channels at neonatal rat neuromuscular junctions
TLDR
P/Q‐type VDCCs were more efficiently coupled to neurotransmitter release than were N‐ type VD CCs at the neonatal neuromuscular junction and results indicate that space–time overlapping of calcium domains was required for facilitation. Expand
Calmodulin bifurcates the local Ca2+ signal that modulates P/Q-type Ca2+ channels
TLDR
It is reported that dual regulation of P/Q-type calcium channels by neuronal activity-dependent changes in intracellular Ca2+ concentration arises from surprisingCa2+-transduction capabilities of CaM, and that CaM may associate with the channel even before local Ca2- concentration rises. Expand
Developmental Changes in Calcium Channel Types Mediating Central Synaptic Transmission

In adult animals, synaptic transmission is predominantly mediated by P/Q-type channels at a subset of synapses and mediated synergistically by multiple types of Ca2+channels at other synapses. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the channel-Syn1A interaction could respond to the conformational changes induced within the channel during membrane depolarization and divalent ion binding, which could partially account for the charge specificity of synaptic transmission as well as for the fast signaling between the Ca2+ source and the fusion apparatus of channel-associated-vesicles (CAV).
