Role of phosphoinositides in STIM1 dynamics and store-operated calcium entry


Ca2+ entry through store-operated Ca2+ channels involves the interaction at ER-PM (endoplasmic reticulum-plasma membrane) junctions of STIM (stromal interaction molecule) and Orai. STIM proteins are sensors of the luminal ER Ca2+ concentration and, following depletion of ER Ca2+, they oligomerize and translocate to ER-PM junctions where they form STIM… (More)
