ArticleWasserstrom, John A.Mutations in the ryanodine receptor (RyR) have been linked to exercise-induced sudden cardiac death. However, the precise sequence of events linking RyR channel mutations to a whole heart arrhythmia is not completely understood. In this paper, we appl . . .
ArticleVariability In Timing Of Spontaneous Calcium Release In The Intact Rat Heart Is Determined By The Time Course Of Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Calcium LoadArora, RishiBackground: Abnormalities in intracellular calcium (Ca) cycling during Ca overload can cause triggered activity because spontaneous calcium release (SCR) activates sufficient Ca-sensitive inward currents to induce delayed afterdepolarizations (DADs). . . .
ThesisHernandez Hernandez, GonzaloSpontaneous calcium release (SCR) occurs when ion channel fluctuations lead to the nucleation of calcium waves in cardiac cells. This phenomenon is important since it has been implicated as a cause of various cardiac arrhythmias. However, to date, it . . .
ArticleAistrup, Gary L.In cardiac myocytes, calcium (Ca) can be released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum independently of Ca influx from voltage-dependent membrane channels. This efflux of Ca, referred to as spontaneous Ca release (SCR), is due to Ryanodine receptor fluctua . . .
