"... In this work, we used computer modeling of quanta release kinetics with various levels of calcium influx and in the presence of endogenous calcium buffers with varying mobilities. The results of this modeling revealed the desynchronization of quanta release under low calcium influx in the presence of an endogenous fixed calcium buffer, with a diffusion coefficient much smaller than that of free Ca2+, and synchronization occurred upon adding a mobile buffer. This corresponds to changes in secretion time course parameters found experimentally ..."
