*  Intercellular calcium waves are associated with the propagation of vasomotion along arterial strips | Heart and Circulatory...
Although vasomotion was investigated for years, this study analyzes for the first time its propagation and the associated intercellular calcium waves. The velocity of the calcium and contraction waves has been precisely determined on endothelium-denuded rat mesenteric arterial strips. As shown in a previous publication, vasomotion can be obtained both on intact arteries and on endothelium-denuded strips (29). Unfortunately, the [Ca2+]i dynamics in SMCs can only be observed on endothelium-denuded strips. This is the reason why, in the present study, all of the experiments were performed on strips on which the ECs have been removed. When these strips were stimulated with a PE concentration leading to vasomotion, contraction and calcium waves spreading along the arterial strips were observed. Since the contraction of the artery is induced by an increase in the [Ca2+]i in SMCs (16, 19), it was expected that the ...

*  Fast calcium wave propagation mediated by electrically conducted excitation and boosted by CICR
We have investigated synchronization and propagation of calcium oscillations, mediated by gap junctional excitation transmission. For that purpose we used an experimentally based model of normal rat kidney (NRK) cells, electrically coupled in a one-dimensional configuration (linear strand). Fibroblasts such as NRK cells can form an excitable syncytium and generate spontaneous inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3))-mediated intracellular calcium waves, which may spread over a monolayer culture in a coordinated fashion. An intracellular calcium oscillation in a pacemaker cell causes a membrane depolarization from within that cell via calcium-activated chloride channels, leading to an L-type calcium channel-based action potential (AP) in that cell. This AP is then transmitted to the electrically connected neighbor cell, and the calcium inflow during that transmitted AP triggers a calcium wave in ...

*  Building oscillations bottom up: elemental time scales of intracellular calcium dynamics - Nottingham ePrints
We analyze the elemental time scale of intracellular calcium dynamics. It is determined by the time course of Ca2+ puffs, which represent the fundamental quantum of Ca2+ release from intracellular storage compartments. Since Ca2+ puffs are truly random, we propose a novel master equation and corresponding Fokker-Planck equations. Our results demonstrate that puff initiation can be mapped to an escape process. The stochastic fraction of puff periods is identified with mean first passage times. We find that the discrete character of release sites represents a necessary condition for puff initiation. A continuous modeling of the number of open channels does not allow Ca2+ puffs in the relevant part of the parameter space.. ...

*  Microtubule-based localization of a synaptic calcium-signaling complex is required for left-right neuronal asymmetry in C....
One challenge for genetic approaches aimed at studying biological processes is the difficulty of identifying specific functions for broadly acting cell biological pathways. Here, we complement classical genetics with a chemical approach to disrupt polymerized microtubules at a specific time in development. Complete microtubule loss leads to lethality and defects in mitosis, but our experiments took advantage of the fact that late embryogenesis, the time at which asymmetric AWC identities are determined, is a time when little cell division occurs. Using a combination of genetics and drug treatment, we have linked microtubule-dependent localization of calcium-regulated signaling proteins, including UNC-43/CaMKII, TIR-1/SARM adaptor and NSY-1/ASK1 MAPKKK to genetic control of neuronal asymmetry in C. elegans. We also identified the requirement of microtubule-dependent kinesin motor gene unc-104/kif1a in this process.. Our results suggest that microtubule-dependent and ...

*  Garden of Life - Vitamin Code - RAW Calcium - 120 Capsules
Is your Calcium RAW, organic, whole food and plant-form calcium? It is if it's Vitamin Code RAW Calcium. Using a patented form of marine algae known as Algas calcareas.sp which is ecologically harvested off the pristine shores of remote South America, this is the only raw, organic, pure plant form of calcium that Garden of Life has ever found. Why Choose This Form of Calcium? There are many advantages to choosing this plant-form calcium over a rock-source calcium. It is widely known that plants from nature are the preferred source of nutrients for the body. Of equal importance is that the plant-form calcium used in Vitamin Code RAW Calcium, Algas calcareas.sp, also provides 73 naturally occurring minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, silica, boron, vanadium and strontium that have all been linked to healthy ...

*  Pratt: Understanding the role of calcium - Kelowna Capital News
Calcium has become the latest double-edged swords in the supplement world.. People want to take calcium for its osteoporosis prevention benefit, but then learn about possible associated cardiovascular disease risks. This usually leaves the consumer confused as to whether the risk is worth the benefit.. To answer the question about whether or not to take calcium, it is first it important to understand the role calcium in our body. Calcium is essential in a variety of physiological functions in our body, in addition to the structural function in our bones. Calcium is a signal molecule for a variety of cellular processes including nerve conduction, muscle contraction, glycogen metabolism and cardiac function. Without calcium, we would not be able to relay signals in our heart or muscles, we wouldn't be able to contract our muscles and our skeleton would not keep us upright.. What is the ...
