RATIONALE Angiotensin II (Ang II) signaling has been implicated in cardiac arrhythmogenesis, which involves induction of reactive oxygen species (ROS). It was shown that Ang II can activate Ca/Calmodulin kinase II (CaMKII) by oxidation via a NADPH oxidase 2 (NOX2)-dependent pathway leading to increased arrhythmic afterdepolarizations. Interestingly,(More)
