BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Protein kinase C (PKC) comprises at least twelve isoforms and has an isoform-specific action on cardiac electrical activity. The slow component of delayed rectifier K(+) current (I (Ks)) is one of the major repolarizing currents in the hearts of many species and is also potentiated by PKC activation. Little is known, however, about(More)
The first edition of the IEC 61400 Wind Generator Systems – Part 24 Lightning Protection [1] was published as a technical report (TR) in July 2002, and as such its scope was to present lightning and lightning protection to a relatively young industry. It presented background statistical information on lightning damage to wind turbines and it gave guidance(More)
1 The present study was designed to examine the functional role of membrane phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P(2)) in the regulation of the muscarinic K(+) channel (I(K,ACh)) by extracellular ATP and adenosine in guinea-pig atrial myocytes, using the whole-cell patch-clamp method. 2 Bath application of ATP in micromolar concentrations(More)
