BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was to characterize the whole cell current of the two-pore domain potassium channel TASK-1 (K2P3) in mouse ventricular cardiomyocytes (I(TASK-1)) and to analyze the cardiac phenotype of the TASK-1(-/-) mice. METHODS AND RESULTS We have quantified the ventricular I(TASK-1) current using the blocker A293 and TASK-1(-/-)(More)
We have examined the immunocytochemical localization of protein kinase C (PKC) in NIH 3T3 cells using mAbs that recognize Type 3 PKC. In control cells, the immunofluorescent staining was similar with mAbs directed to either the catalytic or the regulatory domain of PKC. Type 3 PKC localized in a diffuse cytoplasmic pattern, while the nuclei were apparently(More)
AIMS Clinical observations in patients with long QT syndrome carrying sodium channel mutations (LQT3) suggest that bradycardia caused by parasympathetic stimulation may provoke torsades de pointes (TdP). Beta-adrenoceptor blockers appear less effective in LQT3 than in other forms of the disease. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied effects of autonomic(More)
