In isolated myocytes from mammalian ventricles a fast and a slow component in the contractile response to depolarizing voltage clamp steps were identified. The potential dependence of the slow component was identical to the activation curve of iCa. The fast component, however, remained at its maximal amplitude at potentials positive to +10 mV (up to +100(More)
We have studied changes in electrical activity resulting from abrupt alterations of the Na gradient, using ventricular myocytes isolated from feline and bovine hearts. Attempting to investigate the ionic current possibly generated by Na-Ca exchange, we studied the effects of the changes in [Na]o in the presence of 20 mM CsCl to inhibit K currents. To(More)
