In this issue of Cancer Cell, Dubois and colleagues report a remodeling of calcium influx in prostate cancer cells. Prostate cancer cells can undergo an oncogenic switch from a calcium influx pathway capable of inducing apoptosis involving ORAI1 channels to a pro-proliferative calcium influx pathway involving ORAI1/3 heteromeric channels.
