  • Ca2+ release mediated by the ryanodine receptor (RyR) regulates many important cell functions including excitation-contraction (E-C) coupling in skeletal muscle, by which membrane depolarization controls the opening of RyR via the dihydropyridine receptor. Among the three RyR subtypes, RyR-1 mediates skeletal muscle E-C coupling, whereas RyR-2 and RyR-3 cannot substitute for RyR-1. We carried out expression experiments using cultured mutant skeletal myocytes not having intrinsic intracellular… CONTINUE READING
