Calcium regulation of calcium transport by sarcoplasmic reticulum

The sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of skeletal muscle is an intracellular membraneous network that, through the cyclical release and re-uptake of Ca²⁺ into and from, respectively, the cytoplasmic space, regulates myofilament shortening and, therefore, muscle contraction. SR derived from the terminal ci...
