Background: Ryanodine receptors (RyR) are intracellular Ca2+ release channels. Results: RyR are expressed in human T cells. Modulating the RyR activity in human T cells affects Ca2+ leakage from the store and store-operated Ca2+ entry. Conclusion: RyR strongly regulate Ca 2+ influx in human T cells. Significance: RyR can be used as a target for manipulating immune responses in humans.
