Abstract

Many excitable cells are specialized to promote Ca2+ influx at early stages of development. This article focuses on spontaneous fluctuations of intracellular Ca2+ that are observed during this period. Removal of Ca2+ or suppression of influx alters subsequent differentiation. Thus these signals appear to regulate aspects of early maturation.
