In the present study, we investigated the role of astaxanthin on calcium homeostasis throughout calcium channels, calcium binding proteins and NMDA receptor subunits.
Title: T-type calcium channels determine the vulnerability of dopaminergic neurons to mitochondrial stress in familial Parkinson's disease
[10-13] The [Ca.sub.v] 2.1 encodes for both P and Q type calcium channels and these channels are highly expressed presynaptically where they are critically involved in neurotransmission and synaptic efficacy and therefore have a great influence on neuronal excitability.
"Our findings indicate that just this building block in the calcium channel can be a new target for treating diabetes," says Per-Olof Berggren.
Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects.
Calcium channel blockers such as amlodipine and cilnidipine are very effective antihypertensive agents by virtue of their action on L-type calcium channels present in the vascular smooth muscles.
