Abstract

In animal cells the cytoplasmic free Ca2+ concentration is mainly regulated by opening and closing plasma membrane located Ca2+ channels. These Ca2+ channels are identified by specific binding of Ca2+ antagonists (i.e. diltiazem, nifedipine, verapamil) which are known to block Ca2+-influx.
