Voltage-gated calcium channels

 

These molecules are responsible for the transmission of nerve impulses within cells, for shaping the wave form and frequency of nerve impulses, and for allowing the entry of Ca2+ which serves as an intracellular messenger. Our laboratory is presently studying a recently cloned family of hyperpolarization-activated cation channels (see annual report).
