Module 2: Figure cell-specific Ca2+ signalsomes

Some examples of cell-specific Ca2+ signalling signalsomes.

The four cell types represented here generate Ca2+ signals with very different spatial and temporal properties. For example, the skeletal muscle signalsome selects out those components specialized to deliver rapid pulses of Ca2+ to activate contraction, whereas the T cell signalsome has different components that generate the much slower repetitive pulses of Ca2+ necessary to stimulate cell proliferation.
