Abstract

Measurement of45calcium uptake in cultured cells can be used as a sensitive indicator of chemicalinduced alterations in plasma membrane permeability to calcium. Accumulation of large amounts of calcium may alter the structural and functional integrity of several cellular compartments and result in cell injury.
