Pathway : Calcium signaling pathway

Identifier  04020 Description  Ca2 that enters the cell from the outside is a principal source of signal Ca2 Entry of Ca2 is driven by the presence of a large electrochemical gradient across the plasma membrane Cells use this external source of signal Ca2 by activating various entry channels with widely different properties The voltage-operated channels VOCs are found in excitable cells and generate the rapid Ca2 fluxes that control fast cellular processes There are many other Ca2-entry channels, such as the receptor-operated channels ROCs, for example the NMDA N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors NMDARs that respond to glutamate There also are second-messenger-operated channels SMOCs and store-operated channels SOCs
