  • Elevation of cytosolic Ca2+ levels through the activation of store-operated Ca2+ release-activated Ca2+ (CRAC) channels is involved in mediating a disparate array of cellular responses. These include secretion, metabolism and gene expression, as well as cell growth and proliferation. Moreover, emerging evidence points to the involvement of aberrant CRAC channel activity in human diseases, such as certain types of immunodeficiency and autoimmunity disorders, allergy, and inflammatory bowel… CONTINUE READING
