UNLABELLED Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained and most important arrhythmia in clinical practice. The mechanisms underlying AF initiation and maintenance are known to be complex and heterogeneous. The general understanding of the detailed molecular basis of AF is still incomplete. Recently, these is increasing evidence that small conductance calcium-activated potassium (SK) channels are associated with atrial action potential repolarization and the pathogenesis of AF… CONTINUE READING
