L-Type: high voltage, located in skeletal muscle, bone osteoblasts, ventricular myocytes, dendrites & dendritic spines of cortical neurons. Function in smooth muscle & cardiac muscle contraction. Responsible for prolonged Action Potential in cardiac muscle.

T-Type: low voltage, located in neurons, bone osteocytes & cells that have pacemaker activity. Function in regular sinus rhythm.
