The physiological and pharmacological significance of cardiovascular T-type, voltage-gated calcium channels.


An influx of calcium ions into cells, made possible by the opening of specific, voltage-gated channels, triggers muscular contraction and several other physiological processes. Two types of calcium channels, L-type and T-type, are found in the cardiovascular system. These two types of channels differ considerably in their electrical and chemical… (More)
