Abstract

Ca2+ is involved in an intriguing variety of different biological events. The rapid development of techniques such as region- or organelle-directed fluorescent probes and laser scanning confocal microscopy for studying cellular biological events at a molecular level provides us with a rich daily intake of new results. While detailed three-dimensional structures of many intracellular and extracellular Ca2+-binding proteins have become available, structural information on key membrane proteins is still lacking. An integrated picture of the molecular events behind the multifunctional roles of Ca2+ in biological systems is still pending.
