Calcium signaling pathway

Calcium ions are essential for signal transduction in a multitude of cells and tissues, and impact nearly every aspect of cellular life. This pathway highlights some of the key roles of calcium ions in the signaling process.

Calcium ions play a role in cell excitability, exocytosis, motility, apoptosis, and transcription. Calcium enters the cytoplasm from intracellular stores or from extracellular space, which is driven by a large electrochemical gradient across the plasma membrane.
