Calcium is tightly linked to many of the roles that vitamin D plays in the body. In bone health (and other physiologic systems), calcium is a key player. Calcium is a mineral that must be constantly eaten to build bone and maintain the blood level of calcium. When people hear about calcium, they think “bone.”.   Molecular Biology: Calcium and Cell Function, Volume VI deals with several topics relating to calcium and cell function. This book consists of nine chapters. Chapter 1 describes the various peptides that recognize calmodulin in a calcium-dependent Edition: 1. Calcium and cell function. New York: Academic Press, (OCoLC) Online version: Calcium and cell function. New York: Academic Press, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Wai Yiu Cheung. Calcium ions (Ca 2+) contribute to the physiology and biochemistry of organisms play an important role in signal transduction pathways, where they act as a second messenger, in neurotransmitter release from neurons, in contraction of all muscle cell types, and in enzymes require calcium ions as a cofactor, including several of the coagulation factors.

Calcium And Cell Function, Volume II covers the status of the multifunctional role of calcium in cell function. The book discusses the chemistry and metabolism of calcium, the various calcium-binding proteins in addition to calmodulin; and the functions of calcium, some mediated by calmodulin and some by other proteins.   Purchase Calcium and Cell Function - 1st Edition.

The function of Ca as a transmitter of information demands its maintenance within cells at a very low free concentration. It further demands ways and means to vary it rapidly and precisely in the different cell compartments in keeping with the requirements of the functional cycle of by: 4.

Calcium Ions in Nerve Cell Function (Oxford Neuroscience Series): Medicine & Health Science Books @ ed by: Albumin and globulin are the primary calcium-binding proteins in the serum whereas calmodulin is the primary calcium-binding protein in the cell. Chelated calcium, which accounts for 9% of the serum calcium, allows calcium to be absorbed by various tissues or carried between parts of the body. Riccardi D. The role of extracellular calcium in the regulation of intracellular calcium and cell function (II). Some answers and more questions. Cell Calcium Cited by:   These calcium bursts are highlighted along the cell’s dendrites, where they receive messages from other cells. The chemical messages it receives will be transformed back to an electrical signal in the next neuron, and the process can begin again.
