Phospholamban is the major membrane protein of the heart phosphorylated in response to beta-adrenergic stimulation. In cell-free systems, cAMP-dependent protein kinase catalyzes exclusive phosphorylation of serine 16 of phospholamban, whereas Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase gives exclusive phosphorylation of threonine 17 (Simmerman, H. K. B.,(More)
Phospholamban, a putative regulator of cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ transport, has been shown to be phosphorylated in vitro by cAMP-dependent protein kinase and an intrinsic Ca2+-calmodulin-dependent protein kinase activity. This study was conducted to determine if Ca2+-calmodulin-dependent phosphorylation of phospholamban occurs in response to(More)
The effects of muscarinic cholinergic stimulation on beta-adrenergic induced increases in phospholamban phosphorylation and Ca2+ transport were studied in intact myocardium. Isolated guinea pig ventricles were perfused via the coronary arteries with 32Pi, after which membrane vesicles were isolated from individual hearts. Isoproterenol produced reversible(More)
The effect of beta-adrenergic stimulation on sarcolemmal protein phosphorylation was examined in intact ventricular myocardium. Isolated guinea pig ventricles were perfused via the coronary arteries with 32Pi after which membrane vesicles enriched 3-5-fold in sarcolemma were isolated by differential centrifugation followed by sucrose gradient(More)
The effects of alpha- and beta-adrenergic stimulation on sarcolemmal protein phosphorylation and contractile slow responses were studied in intact myocardium. Isolated rat ventricles were perfused via the coronary arteries with 32Pi after which membrane vesicles partially enriched in sarcolemma were isolated from individual hearts. Alterations in the(More)
Erythrocyte count, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume and reticulocyte counts were measured in 59 pairs of monozygotic (MZ) and 69 pairs of dizygotic (DZ) adult, Caucasian male twins. The means of MZ and DZ twins were not significantly different for any of the traits measured. Erythrocyte count and mean corpuscular volume had significant estimates of(More)
This study was designed to determine if the positive and negative inotropic actions of alpha-1-adrenergic agonists in rat atrial and ventricular myocardium are mediated via different alpha-1-adrenergic receptor (AR) subtypes. Inotropic effects of phenylephrine were examined in isolated left atrial and papillary muscle before and after treatment with(More)
Muscarinic agonists inhibit cyclic AMP (cAMP)-induced phosphorylation of the cardiac protein phospholamban. The mechanism of this muscarinic inhibition of phosphorylation of phospholamban appears to occur at more than one level in the series of reactions comprising the adenylate cyclase, cAMP-dependent protein kinase system. Muscarinic agonists attenuate(More)
