In T lymphocytes, a store-operated calcium ion (Ca2+) entry mechanism termed the calcium release-activated Ca2+ channel (CRAC channel) underlies the sustained or oscillatory intracellular calcium concentration signal required for interleukin-2 gene expression and cell proliferation. The use of sodium ions as a current carrier enabled single-channel recordings of CRAC channels during activation, inactivation, and blockade of current in the presence of divalent cations. A large conductance of 36… CONTINUE READING
