FKBP12.6-Mediated Stabilization of Calcium-Release Channel (Ryanodine Receptor) as a Novel Therapeutic Strategy Against Heart Failure
Background—The development of heart failure is tightly correlated with a decrease in the stoichiometric ratio for FKBP12.6 binding to the ryanodine receptor (RyR) in the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR).Expand

Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia Is Caused by Mutation-Linked Defective Conformational Regulation of the Ryanodine Receptor
Rationale: Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is caused by a single point mutation in a well-defined region of the cardiac type 2 ryanodine receptor (RyR)2. However, theExpand

Altered intracellular Ca2+ handling in heart failure.
Structural and functional alterations in the Ca2+ regulatory proteins present in the sarcoplasmic reticulum have recently been shown to be strongly involved in the pathogenesis of heart failure.Expand

Mechanisms of Disease: ryanodine receptor defects in heart failure and fatal arrhythmia
Abnormal regulation of intracellular Ca2+ by sarcoplasmic reticulum plays a part in the mechanism underlying contractile and relaxation dysfunction in heart failure (HF). TheExpand

Scavenging free radicals by low-dose carvedilol prevents redox-dependent Ca2+ leak via stabilization of ryanodine receptor in heart failure.
OBJECTIVES We investigated whether defective intracellular Ca2+ handling is corrected by carvedilol in heart failure. BACKGROUND In heart failure, the interaction between the N-terminal and centralExpand

Defective calmodulin binding to the cardiac ryanodine receptor plays a key role in CPVT-associated channel dysfunction.
Calmodulin (CaM), one of the accessory proteins of the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2), is known to play a significant role in the channel regulation of the RyR2. However, the possible involvementExpand

Correction of Defective Interdomain Interaction Within Ryanodine Receptor by Antioxidant Is a New Therapeutic Strategy Against Heart Failure
Background— Defective interdomain interaction within the ryanodine receptor (RyR2) seems to play a key role in the pathogenesis of heart failure, as shown in recent studies. In the present study weExpand

Defective Regulation of Interdomain Interactions Within the Ryanodine Receptor Plays a Key Role in the Pathogenesis of Heart Failure
Background—According to our hypothesis, 2 domains within the ryanodine receptor (RyR) of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) (N-terminal [0 to 600] and central [2000 to 2500] domains), where many mutationsExpand

Observation of the highly organized development of granule cells in rat cerebellar organotypic cultures
Cerebellar slices of 9-day-old rats were cultured for a week at the interface between air and a culture medium containing horse serum and hormone cocktail, and the development of granule cells wasExpand
