Reduced external calcium or sodium stimulates calcium influx in Pelvetia eggs

Abstract

The effect of external calcium and sodium ion concentrations on the calcium fluxes on the Pelvetia fastigiata De Toni egg was measured. Decreasing external [Ca2+] greatly increased the permeability of the eggs to Ca2+; at 1 mM external Ca2+ this permeability was 60 times as great as it was at the normal [Ca2+] of 10 mM. Lowering the external [Na+] also… (More)
