Gene regulation by voltage-dependent calcium channels.

Abstract : Ca(2+) is the most widely used second messenger in cell biology and fulfills a plethora of essential cell functions. One of the most exciting findings of the last decades was the involvement of Ca(2+) in the regulation of long-term cell adaptation through its ability to control gene expression. This finding provided a link between cell excitation and gene expression. In this review, we chose to focus on the role of voltage-dependent calcium channels in mediating gene expression in response to membrane depolarization. We illustrate the different pathways by which these channels are involved in excitation-transcription coupling, including the most recent Ca(2+) ion-independent strategies that highlight the transcription factor role of calcium channels.
