Ca2+ is a universal second messenger that is a key component of myriad processes in all cell types. Perturbations in normal intracellular Ca2+ concentrations underlie many common pathological conditions, ranging from cardiac hypertrophy to ischemic death of neurons. A recent meeting addressed the contributions of Ca2+ and Ca2+ binding proteins to health and disease. Insights gleaned from mechanistic studies offered the potential for new therapeutic approaches to combat a variety of diseases resulting from alterations in Ca2+ homeostasis.
