The aim of this study was to investigate possible regulation of the hyperpolarization-activated current (I(f)) by cytosolic calcium in guinea-pig sino-atrial (SA) node cells. Isolated SA node cells were superfused with physiological saline solution (36 degrees C) and the perforated patch voltage-clamp technique used to record I(f) activated by(More)
The origin of the heartbeat in the sino-atrial (SA) node is usually thought to arise from the sequential activation of a variety of ionic currents in pacemaker cells (Irisawa et al. 1993). Recently, the possibility has been considered that heart rate might be influenced by transient changes in cytosolic Ca2+. Rubenstein & Lipsius (1989) demonstrated that in(More)
