Ca2+ signalling in plant cells: the big network!

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1998 Oct;1(5):428-33. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5266(98)80268-9.


Significant advances in Ca2+ and calmodulin signalling in whole plants and individual cells have been recently reported. Particular relevant contributions have been made to the study of the modification of gene expression by osmotic, light and gravity signals and the growth of root hairs and pollen tubes.
