Calcium ions (Ca 2+) contribute to the physiology and biochemistry of organisms play an important role in signal transduction pathways, where they act as a second messenger, in neurotransmitter release from neurons, in contraction of all muscle cell types, and in enzymes require calcium ions as a cofactor, including several of the coagulation factors.

The purpose of the Calcium Theme was to review progress in the diverse areas of investigation bearing on the ubiquitous role of calcium in biological systems.

In addition to contributions from those participating in the Theme, this volume also includes a number of invited papers that. Abstract. We begin this introduction to the structural and molecular biology of living systems with a consideration of the polar nature of the universal solvent for living organisms, water, and what we call the hydrophobic effect, a major driving force in determining the global structures of biological constructs such as proteins, nucleic acids and biomembranes.

Calcium (Ca) plays important structural and physiological roles in our body. Usually, our body meets up its Ca need from dietary sources. In developing countries like Bangladesh, most of the. Abstract. Evolution has selected Ca as a carrier of signals to a large number of cellular functions, among them the generation and degradation of metabolic products, the synthesis and release of hormones, muscle and non-muscle motility, and a variety of membrane-linked processes (see Carafoli,for a recent comprehensive review).Cited by: 4.

They affect many biological processes and function of organs directly or indirectly. Let us discuss the biological importance of Calcium and Magnesium.

Biological Importance of Magnesium. Activity of enzymes: Mg plays a crucial role in the biochemical reactions occurring in our body. Participates in the structure of bones and least 99% of the total amount of calcium is in the bones and teeth.

Calcium in the bones is transformed into a hydroxyapatite - Ca 10 (PO 4) 6 (OH) 2 but the bones also contain significant amounts of calcium phosphate, carbonate, citrate, fluoride, magnesium, strontium, trace and minor amounts of other salts.

Book Description. Written by leaders in their fields, Calcium Oxalate in Biological Systems comprehensively discusses current information about the importance of this compound in animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms. Both in vivo and in vitro methods of crystallization as well as crystallization systems are discussed.
