The review considers peculiarities of Ca(2+)-signalization in electroexcitable cells of the higher eukaryotes. The light has been thrown upon the problems of Ca(2+)-dependent mechanisms of regulation of muscle contractility and of neuronal synaptic plasticity in the higher vertebrate animals. A particular attention has been paid to analysis of contribution of such poorly studied components of Ca(2+)-signalization as non-selective TRPC-channels, Orai channels, sensory STIMI proteins, Ca(2+)-controlled K(+)-channels of high and low conductivity, and neuronal Ca(2+)-sensors (NCS).
