Stable calcium wave velocity. The velocity of stable calcium waves depends on the RyR channel density in the ER membrane and on the ER radius. The traces for wave velocity as a function of RyR density rise quickly in a small range above the threshold for stable waves and then exhibit a quasi-linear behavior with a slope seemingly independent of the ER radius. In dendrites where multiple synaptic sites are activated in a spatio-temporal manner, this linear dependence could result in linear additivity of multiple calcium wave velocities and thus may be useful in describing multi-wave interactions in more complex dendritic branching patterns
