Low-voltage activated, T-type calcium channels (T-channels) are expressed in many developing tissues and may be important in regulating important cellular phenotype transitions leading to cell proliferation, differentiation, growth and death. The purpose of this review is to relate and delineate the current data on the involvement of T-channels in differentiation and proliferation. Owing to the recent cloning of the CaV3.1, CaV3.2 and CaV3.3 subunits coding for T-channels, classical… CONTINUE READING
