All three ryanodine receptor isoforms generate rapid cooling responses in muscle cells.

The rapid cooling (RC) response in muscle is an increase in cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) that is probably caused by Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR). However, the molecular bases of this response have not been completely elucidated. Three different isoforms of the SR Ca2+ release channels, or ryanodine receptors (RyRs), have… CONTINUE READING
