Reverse engineering the kidney: modelling calcium oxalate monohydrate crystallization in the nephron
Crystallization of calcium oxalate monohydrate in a section of a single kidney nephron (distal convoluted tubule) is simulated using a model adapted from industrial crystallization...

Competitive Calcium Binding: Implications for Dendritic Calcium Signaling
Action potentials evoke calcium transients in dendrites of neocortical pyramidal neurons with time constants of <100 ms at physiological temperature. This time period may not be...

Models of Calmodulin Trapping and CaM Kinase II Activation in a Dendritic Spine
Activation of calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) by calmodulin following calcium entry into the cell is important for long-term potentiation (LTP). Here a mode...

Long-Time Simulations on High Resolution Meshes to Model Calcium Waves in a Heart Cell
Abstract. A model for the flow of calcium in an atrial heart cell is given by a system of timedependent reaction-diffusion equations coupled by non-linear reaction terms. Calcium i...
