1. The mechanisms that control release of Ca2+ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of guinea-pig ventricular cells were studied by observing intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i transients) and membrane currents in voltage-clamped guinea-pig ventricular myocytes perfused internally with Fura-2. 2. Sarcolemmal Ca2+ current was identified through the(More)
Recordings have been made of changes in intracellular calcium ion concentration ([Ca2+]i) that can be attributed to the operation of an electrogenic, voltage-dependent sodium-calcium (Na-Ca) exchanger in mammalian heart cells. Guinea pig ventricular myocytes under voltage clamp were perfused internally with fura-2, a fluorescent Ca2+-indicator, and changes(More)
1. Membrane currents and changes in [Ca2+]i attributable to the operation of an electrogenic Na-Ca exchange mechanism were recorded in single isolated guinea-pig ventricular myocytes under voltage clamp and internal perfusion with the Ca2+ indicator Fura-2. 2. Ionic currents that interfere with the measurement of Na-Ca exchange current were blocked through(More)
