Default General Question about Muscle

For Skeletal Muscle (Skm), Smooth, and Cardiac muscle is this correct:

Ca-induced-Ca-release: Skm and Cardiac

Dihydropyridine receptors: Skm and Smooth (I say Smooth Muscle because Nifedipne works on Smooth Muscle)

Ryanodine receptor - Skm only

Would this be correct?
