Discrete events of Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) have been described in cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle. In skeletal muscle these release events originate at individual channels. In cardiac muscle, however, it remains a question of debate whether localized Ca2+ release transients, termed Ca2+ sparks, originate from single release(More)
1. Atrial myocytes obtained by enzymatic perfusion of hearts from adult guinea-pigs and cultured for 0-14 days were studied using the whole-cell voltage-clamp technique. 2. Superfusion of the myocytes with diluted sera (1:100 to 1:10,000) from different species (human, horse, guinea-pig) evoked an inward rectifying K+ current. The voltage-dependent(More)
The subcellular spatial and temporal organization of agonist-induced Ca2+ signals was investigated in single cultured vascular endothelial cells. Extracellular application of ATP initiated a rapid increase of intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in peripheral cytoplasmic processes from where activation propagated as a [Ca2+]i wave toward the central(More)
1. Ratiometric confocal microscopy and the whole-cell patch clamp technique were used to simultaneously record intracellular Ca2+ transients and membrane currents from guinea-pig ventricular myocytes. Intracellular dialysis with the low-affinity Ca2+ buffer citrate enabled us to record and analyse Ca2+ transients caused by Ca2+ influx alone and by(More)
We used a fast, fluorescent, potential-sensitive indicator (Di-8-ANEPPS) in combination with laser-scanning confocal microscopy in the line-scan mode (temporal resolution 500 Hz) to independently determine the transmembrane potential in voltage-clamped cells. While a linear relation between command voltage and Di-8-ANEPPS fluorescence was found in(More)
1. Spatiotemporal aspects of subcellular Ca2+ signalling were studied in cultured adult guinea-pig atrial myocytes. A mixture of the Ca2+ indicators fluo-3 and Fura Red in combination with laser-scanning confocal microscopy was used for [Ca2+]i measurements while membrane currents were recorded simultaneously. 2. In citrate-loaded atrial myocytes not every(More)
1. Intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) signals were studied with spatial resolution in bovine vascular endothelial cells using the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator fluo-3 and confocal laser scanning microscopy. Single cells were stimulated with the purinergic receptor agonist ATP resulting in an increase of [Ca2+]i due to intracellular Ca2+ release from inositol(More)
Template and Preprocessor Metaprogramming are both well-known in the C++ community to have much in common with Functional Programming (FP). Recently, very few research threads on underpinning these commonalities have emerged to empower cross-development of C++ Metaprogramming (C++MP) and FP. In this paper, we program a self-contained real-world example in a(More)
L-type Ca2+ current (ICa) was measured in cultured atrial myocytes from hearts of adult guinea-pigs using whole-cell voltage clamp. Potentiation of ICa induced by beta-adrenergic stimulation (isoprenaline 2.10(-7) M) could be completely antagonized by diluted sera (1:100 v/v). Half-maximal inhibition of beta-receptor-stimulated ICa occurred at about 1:1000.(More)
