We propose that abnormal calcium handling by the airway smooth muscle may be an important determinant of airway hyperresponsiveness. The amplitude, frequency, or localization of Ca(2+) oscillations in the smooth muscle may determine the degree of airway sensitivity and reactivity, which are characteristic features of asthma.
