Higher concentration of cytoplasmic calcium, via its release from intracellular stores (sarcoplasmic reticulum) and its entry from the extracellular milieu (opening of L-type membrane calcium channels), causes smooth-muscle cell contraction. Conversely, activation of calcium ATPase in the membrane of sarcoplasmic reticulum, which pumps cytoplasmic calcium back into the intracellular store, and closure of L-type calcium channels result in decreased cytoplasmic calcium levels. The cyclic nucleotides guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) have a key role in erection as intracellular second messengers (Fig.
