As second messengers, Ca2+ ions have a fundamental role in a wide variety of environmental responses and developmental processes. The process of signal perception and transduction through Ca2+ involves prompt changes in the levels of its intracellular free concentration that is used to coordinate a physiological response. In plants, continuous exposition to changing and potentially harsh conditions induces diverse spatial and temporal patterns of Ca2+ levels. Referred to as “Ca2+ signatures”, these changes provide plants with information about external stimuli that are decoded using highly-specific protein sensors which trigger the appropriate physiological responses. Ca2+ sensors affect the activity of downstream effectors that synchronize changes in metabolism, gene expression, and turnover of proteins.
