During vascular morphogenic events, mural cells are recruited to developing endothelial tubes to aid in stabilization and maturation of the new vessels. There are two known types of mural cells, pericytes and vascular ...
Regulation of L-type calcium channel sparklet activity by PKC and C-src
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Ca2+ sparklets are elementary fluorescence events associated with Ca2+ entry through L-type Ca2+ channels (Cav1.2) channels and are classified as persistent and low activity Ca2+ sparklets. Persistent Ca2+ sparklets are ...
