Abstract
Calcium channels in excitable membranes are of great importance for many cellular functions. Modulation of these channels by neurotransmitters and drugs regulates calcium influx into the cell and thereby alters the functional state of the cell. Recently it has become possible to measure properties of single calcium channels directly and to obtain evidence on mechanisms of their modulation.
