Hyperpolarization-activated cation (HCN) channels give rise to an inward current with similar but not identical characteristics compared with the pacemaker current (I(f)), suggesting that HCN channel function is modulated by regulatory beta-subunits in native tissue. KCNE2 has been proposed to serve as a beta-subunit of HCN channels; however, available data(More)
AIMS The hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) current I(f)/I(HCN) is generally thought to be carried by Na(+) and K(+) under physiological conditions. Recently, Ca(2+) influx through HCN channels has indirectly been postulated. However, direct functional evidence of Ca(2+) permeation through I(f)/I(HCN) is still lacking. METHODS AND(More)
Currently, only limited insight into mechanisms promoting the differentiation and specification of the mammalian cardiac conduction system is available. Therefore, we established a murine embryonic stem (ES) cell line stably expressing the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) under the transcriptional control of the human atrial natriuretic peptide(More)
Whereas retinoid acid (RA) signaling has been implicated in embryonic heart development, its significance in differentiation of specific cardiac subtypes remains largely unknown. In the present study, we took advantage of lineage-specific expression of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in embryonic stem (ES) cells to study RA-induced effects on(More)
The cardiac transient outward current I(to) is regulated by thyroid hormone (T3). However, it remains unclear whether T3 directly modulates underlying gene transcription and which thyroid receptor (TR) isoform might be responsible for gene transactivation. To clarify this situation, we analysed the role of T3 and its receptors alpha1 (TRalpha1) and beta1(More)
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is the set of ischemia episodes that protects against subsequent periods of prolonged ischemia through the cascade of adaptive responses; however, the mechanisms of RIPC are not entirely clear. Here, we aimed to study the impact of RIPC in patients with stable angina pectoris and compare it with healthy individuals(More)
Accelerated sinus rhythm is an important side effect of inhaled salbutamol which is especially harmful in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and coronary heart disease (CHD). Cross-over, randomized, open label study design. 20 patients (18 males and two females) with COPD stage II-IV and comorbide CHD NYHA class I-III were included.(More)
BACKGROUND Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a formidable side effect of iodinated contrast medium use in subjects undergoing coronary angiogram (CAG). Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) may reduce the risk of CIN. AIM The aim of the study was to investigate the nephroprotective effects of RIPC in coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients,(More)
