23 CALCIUM ENTRY AND ANTAGONISTS SUMMARY There is strong evidence that calcium entry through an electrophysiologically and pharmacologically defined calcium channel is an important calcium entry route in many cells. A group of agents, including verapamil, 0-600 and Nifedipine appear to act as quite selective inhibitors of ion translocation through this channel. However the mechanism(s) of action of these agents remain to be defined. Although these agents appear to be very useful as probes of calcium entry processes in cellular systems, their possible actions at other sites should not be ignored.
