Calcium(2+)

Name: Calcium(2+)
Description: A calcium cation that has formula Ca. An essential element in the function of the nervous system. The influx of Ca(2+) ions controlled by membrane channels affects many metabolic processes within neurons, and triggers the release of neurotransmitters.
Synonym(s): calcium2+, Ca(2+), calcium ion, Ca2+, calcium(2+) ion, Ca, Ca++, calcium(II) cation, calcium++
Abbreviation: Ca(2+)
Has role: Current carrier
Super-category: Cation
