Since cloning of the T-type or Ca(V)3.n calcium channel family in 1998-1999 much progress was made in investigation of their regulation. Most effective metal Ca(V)3 channel blockers are trivalent cations from lanthanide group together with transition metals La(3+) and Y(3+). Divalent cations Zn(2+), Cu(2+) and Ni(2+) inhibit Ca(V)3.2 channels more efficiently than Ca(V)3.1 and Ca(V)3.3 channels via second high-affinity binding site including histidine H191 specific for the Ca(V)3.2 channel… CONTINUE READING
