Calcium channels

Definition

Calcium channels are ion channels that are triggered to open by either a change in the voltage across the membrane, which occurs in nerve cells propagating a signal, or by small molecule ligands such as inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (Ins3P, IP3). Calcium channels allow calcium to flow into the cell or out of the endoplasmic reticulum.
