Abstract : This book is a compendium of the written contributions submitted by the invited speakers to the 40th Annual Meeting of the Society of General Physiologists. There were also 118 abstracts of contributed papers submitted to this meeting, which have been published in the December 1986 issue of The Journal of General Physiology. Partial Contents: Regulation of Cytosolic Free Calcium, The Plasma Membrane in the Control of the Signaling Function of Calcium, Calcium-permeable Channels in Vascular Smooth Muscle: Voltage-activated, Receptor-operated, and Leak Channels, Calcium and Magnesium Movements in Cells and the Role of Inositol Trisphosphate in Muscle, Receptor-mediated Changes in Intracellular Calcium, Mechanisms Involved in Receptor-mediated Changes of Intracellular Ca2 + in Liver, The Role of Phosphatidylinositides in Stimulus-Secretion Coupling in the Exocrine Pancreas, Modulation of Membrane Transport by Intracellular Calcium, The Role of Cyclic AMP-dependent Phosphorylation in the Maintenance and Modulation of Voltage-activated Calcium Channels, Multiple Roles for Calcium and Calcium-dependent Enzymes in the Activation of Peptidergic Neurons of Aplysia, Calcium Involvement in Intracellular Events, The Relationship Between the Cytosolic Free Calcium Ion Concentration and the Control of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase, Membrane and Microfilament Organization and Vasopressin Action in Transporting Epithelia.
