A kinetic model of Ca2+-dependent inactivation (CDI) of L-type Ca2+ channels was developed. The model is based on the hypothesis that postulates the existence of four short-lived modes with lifetimes of a few hundreds of milliseconds. Our findings suggest that the transitions between the modes is primarily determined by the binding of Ca2+ to two intracellular allosteric sites located in different motifs of the CI region, which have greatly differing binding rates for Ca2+ (different k(on)). The slow-binding site is controlled by local Ca2+ near a single open channel that is consistent with the "domain" CDI model, and Ca2+ binding to the fast-binding site(s) depends on Ca2+ arising from distant sources that is consistent with the "shell" CDI model. The model helps to explain numerous experimental findings that are poorly understood so far.
