[Excitation-contraction coupling: role of ionic currents and of ionic pumps (author's transl)].

Abstract

The processes of excitation-contraction coupling in skeletal and cardiac muscles show some very important differences. In skeletal muscle, the action potential is primarily a trigger mechanism for mechanical events which are much slower, whereas in cardiac muscle the electrical activity continues to control the mechanical response even after the initial… (More)
