Introduction: Placenta has many essential roles to maintain pregnancy and homeostasis. Calcium transport and its regulation are also important for vital roles of placenta. In general, calcium transport is regulated by active transcellular and passive paracellular pathways. Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 5/6 (TRPV5/6), calbindin-D9k (CaBP-9k), calbindin-D28k (CaBP-28k), and Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX1) are involved in the transcellular pathway.
